Today's Health Update

Today's update isn't good. I need to be transfered to another hospital that has a certain specialist that deals with the kind of blockage I have. It’s a rare blockage. I could be in the hospital for quite some time.  Have to say I'm a bit scared.

Prayers are appreciated.

Health Update

 I will be down for at least a week and not able to craft due to the upcoming surgeries. Yes, 2 surgeries.  I'm sorry I don't have anything crafty I can share but I hope to after I get home sometime next week.

Down for Recovery

 I will not have any posts for the rest of this week due to gallbladder surgery and recovery. I hope to start crafting this weekend. And if you're a praying person, I appreciate your prayers.

It's a 4 x 4 Life

I'm learning more about being on The Rabbit Hole Design team. There's a LOT to learn!  This card uses their SXS Life clear stamp set and coordinating die set and their Desert Background 4x6 stamp.


 I had to get the Desert stamp since we live in southwest Arizona and the SXS Life set since our youngest drives these "truggies". He built his own and travels with friends playing on the rocks.


I colored with my colored pencils but I will soon have my set of OLO markers (similar to Copics) as they have been shipped! They will be fun to play with!

Keep Calm and Carrion

 I finally finished my 4th card for my August class a week ago. I used a The Rabbit Hole Designs stamp set and coordinating die that I think is so fun called "Caffeinated Vulture".

My lighting has made this lighter than it really is. But isn't this a hoot! I love TRHD products and their caffeinated series is so fun and unusual! 


You can see this photo is a bit darker and is almost the exact colors I used. I colored with PrismaColor pencils and used a couple cool Spellbinders die sets and onyx gems to complete the look I wanted.

To see all 4 cards together go to my Upcoming Events page and check out my class photo. At last month's class 5 kits/class seats were reserved out of the 12 and I didn't even have this card done! I sold out last month and am so blessed by my wonderful local ladies!
