Friends

Hope y'all are having a wonderful start to your week this week! I also hope you are all enjoying life and the beautiful autumn season. Where I am, the leaves are starting to change their colours and the air is crisp and cold. Just little things I'm thankful for!

Here's a card using 2 Technique Junkie Newsletter techniques, Painted Puzzle, a bonus technique from the latest CD release and Burnished Background from the October '09 issue. Both are fun techniques to be sure and the possibilities are endless. If you haven't gotten your latest CD release, I encourage you to do so. The bonus techniques on the CD will blow you away!

On my card, the stamp image on the puzzle is from Paperbag Studio. Background is from Stampin' Up! Click photo to enlarge. Enjoy!

Until next time, may mojo live happily in your heart, and may passion bloom in your soul. Be well!

Cards for Troops

About two months ago, my friend and neighbour, Barbara, told me her husband, David, who is stationed in Afghanistan would be coming home to visit for a couple of weeks in early September. I wanted to do something nice to show how much I appreciate our service men and women. I also knew that I have many friends who would want to do the same. So, I sent out a request for handmade cards for our troops to send with David for when he return to Afghanistan.

Well, David was here and has gone back to his service September 18th. The photo below is of David & my son with shoe boxes loaded with greeting cards. My friend, Linda E., my son, and I delivered the cards to David's house the day before David was to leave. 940 cards total were donated for my little Cards for Troops program. Thank you to all my stamping friends for your generosity above and beyond my imagination! I'm truly grateful. And I know with all my heart that the troops appreciate you as well!

God bless our Troops! God bless America! Pray continually for our fighting men and women and their family!

Until next time, may mojo live happily in your heart, and may passion bloom in your soul. Be well!

Happy Birthday, Burt!

Today is my good friend's (Burt) birthday. He is turning some big numbers :) I made this card just for him. We'll go and celebrate his birthday later at a nut house and grab some BBQ at a back-wood Arkansas kinda place. Should be extremely interesting. Burt is interesting, fun and super intelligent. I'm blessed to have him as a friend!

The metal plate background piece is made using AI Foil technique from the August '09 TJ Newsletter. It's a totally fun technique with great result. Denim part is pieces from my son's old jeans. Firearm is from Burt's wife, Linda, my sweet adopted sister. Hope Burt likes his card!


Thanks for stopping by today. I'll try to post more regularly. But do check back on Monday the 28th for another TJ Treasure hunt! Until next time, may mojo live happily in your heart, and may passion bloom in your soul. Be well!

Yoo Hoo! I'm Still Here!

WOW, long time no see! You probably wonder what had happened to me or if I was still alive. I am still here, alive and well. Just that I have been re-prioritising my life a bit. There are things that are first priorities, namely family and friends and there are things that are important like work and million other responsibilities. But most importantly, I want to take a journey through life that includes more of family time and time for friends away from the pit. I have more time to pray for my son, my family and friends. I have time to jog almost daily. Oh, and I so enjoy dining with my gals. Fine times. I do still make cards and send them alright. It's just not as often and just not here. I will be here a bit more because of a commitment as a DT member for Technique Junkie Newsletter but it won't be anything major. With that said ...

Please come back tomorrow for the first ever Technique Junkie Newsletter Treasure Hunt. Great prize is in store for you!

And now a little card I made using Chalk Lines technique from the TJ Newsletter, June '09 issue. Enjoy!

Until next time, may mojo live happily in your heart, and may passion bloom in your soul. Be well!
