Good bye to a dear friend


This was not the post I intended to share with you today but...


Last Night we had to say Goodbye to our Sherman, it's been a very strange for all of us, and we miss him so much already.
He has been with us since he was a little puppy and would have been 13 this year. But we are so thankful for God allowing us the time we had with him, and he will always be in our hearts.
Love you Shermydog!



I will attempt to be back Monday.

I'm a Guest Artist over at the Die Cut Diva's Blog


When my Grand Opening  Launch Post went live 3 and 1/2 weeks ago, it didn't take long before I received an email from Arlene, an old acquaintance,  who noticed I had finally posted something on my blog, right away she contacted me and asked if I would like to guest post at the Die Cut Diva's Blog, from which I was formally apart of their design team, so of course I agreed right away!

  If you can't guess by the name the challenge blog it revolved around die cutting, and each month there is a challenge to make something (usually cards) with die cuts and embossing folders, and each month there is a different theme and sponsor.

This Month it's pretty simple the Challenge sponsored by Altenew is Anything goes.

For this Months theme; Anything goes, it only took me a moment to decide what I would do, I just felt like celebrating so that is exactly what I did...
I actually have a lot to celebrate this month, my new job doing what I love, getting back into creativity, the return of warm weather and my Dad's Birthday! (this card is for him too )
I pulled out my new favorite CTMH stamp, (actually an old retired stamp) and inked it up with Sapphire Blue, and die cut the word Celebrate, and that is another thing I'm celebrating, as soon as I got back in the "game"  I finally learned how to use deco foil! something I've been wanting to do for some time, I love how it turned out, the foam adhesive I used was so sticky I had a hard time getting it off my hands, but as soon as the foil transferred onto it, it now feels so smooth and silky.


There is 5 days left to order at my online store, for my Grand Opening Event, I would love your support to help me kick off my new business with a great start.

Lots of links for you to view and share

The April Showers are giving a hint, as we are quickly approaching May, it's been so dark in my little studio all day! makes me feel so sleepy, and not wanting to get much done.
 I find myself humming "Raindrops keep falling on my head", which helps cheer me up, and realize just how good I have it, and what God has done for me each and every day.
Aside from the gloomy weather I have actually been pretty busy, I've been promoting my business through Facebook, Instagram, and right here on the blog, trying to get as many likes, follows, and  shares as possible, since nowadays that is the best way to get the word out.
Here is how you can help me, share my links in whatever social media you use, tell your friends, let me help you host a fun crafty night! shop at my store, and now in my Facebook group you can purchase my cards as well!
