Breast Cancer Month

October is Breast Cancer month.  I will display this on my blog for the entire month!  This is very near and dear to my heart.  Two years ago while having a routine mammogram I got that dreaded call.  We have " we have an area of concern" we would like for you to come in to the breast center and have an ultra sound.  Not knowing exactly what that meant I was in shock. 

I went in had the ultra sound seemed like for ever all alone with my husband in the waiting room I get moved in to an office where there was a doctor sitting.  She said,  we have found a lump on your left side and about an inch in size.  We don't think it looks like cancer but we want to watch it and have you come back in 6 months.  I waited and prayed, and prayed over that next six months. 

Talk about torture over that time.  Low and behold the appointment came around.  They took another mammogram followed buy more picture, followed by 3-d mammogram then an ultrasound again.  Again the whole time by myself hubby in the waiting room wondering was it bad news.

Luckily, by the grace of God it was not cancer.  I will still have to be monitored every year and the lump is still there but with God's grace.  It will not grow it will just be there. 

I was extremely lucky several of my dearest friends were not so lucky.  They got the dreaded Cancer diagnosis.  I am so honored to have these beautiful ladies in my life and love them both dearly.

Beth,  Janis and Pattie you guys rocked and beat cancer!!!!!  You are awesome ladies and I love you dearly!!!

Spreading Kindess card

Hello everyone, Erica on the blog today!

I don't know about you but I've been quite saddened to see so much hatred, friends attacking friends and general unkindness going around lately. Regardless of your political/religious/personal beliefs I think we can all do better with keeping it a bit civilised and perhaps doing less talking and more actions. With that in mind I made this card with a positive message to send out some positive karma into the world.

















Using an A2 panel cut out from Ranger Ink water colour paper, I dusted it generously with my anti-static tool as I was going to heat emboss the gorgeous Just A Rose stamp set. I started by stamping it in the middle with VersaMark ink and dusting it with white embossing powder, also from Ranger Ink. Using a mask I already had, I stamped it again on both sides to create a rose bush border, before adding and setting the embossing powder with my heat tool.

Using a sentiment from Mama Elephant's 'Butterfly Kisses' I st…

Happy Owl-idays!

Hello, everyone! Rachel here with you today!

I'm loving the cute little critters that are going to be coming up in a new release and I think you're going to love them, too. I have a clean and simple creation using a new owl image for you today.


I started my card by masking off a small strip on the right hand side of the card and then blending purple and pink inks into the strip to create an ombre effect. After it had dried, I used a stencil and some texture paste to create my falling snow. I carefully removed my masking paper and then let the texture paste dry.

While I waited, I colored my little owl image and used my Brother Scan N Cut 2 to cut him out. (Have I mentioned lately how much I hate fussy cutting?) When I was sure the card was dry, I used my MISTI to line up my sentiment and stamped it in a bold, black ink. I used some foam tape to adhere my little own beside my sentiment and my card was done!

Thanks for joining me today!
