Welcome to my bLoG! Lots of random ramblings will happen here, mostly about crafting. I love stamping, die cuts, playing with copics, embellishments galore, ribbon, buttons, brads....on and on. I'm passionate about greeting cards. When was the last time you opened your mailbox and what was inside made you smile? Humm............
Well, lets play!

A birthday thought....

It's my 42nd birthday, and I gotta say, I am happy to be 42. I was given a 30-40% chance to see today at my diagnosis 5+ years ago......am feeling very blessed today. I have lost some special friends during these 5 years to this horrible disease. I don't understand why I am the one still here, but hold my girlfriends Betty and Franya in a special place in my heart. Sorry to get HeAvY on my blog, just felt the need to express this. Take a minute to give thanks to God for what you have, look at a neighbor and ask yourself.....what can I do to help someone who is strugglng? As Ellen says...'be kind to one another'....isn't that what it's all about?

I LOVE Stamping Bella stamps.  You do need to use an adhesive to attach them to your stamping block....I've started just using some double sided tape and cleaning the block really well when I'm done.  Anyhoosie doosie, I think this chick is SaSsY!  I gave this card to a supa sassy friend of mine for her birthday.  I used copic markers (still getting the hang of them, even after a class), my wonderful little embossing machine for the dry embossing, some ribbon, and the sentiment is a rub on.
