A comfortafghan is being sent to the parents of Marine Lance Cpl. Daniel R. Bennett in his honor. I can only imagine the pain of losing a child and I certainly hope it brings them some small measure of comfort.

Comfort Afghan in the Mail

This is being mailed to a Mother and Father that recently lost a daughter. I can not imagine the pain they must be feeling, but I really hope this brings even a small amount of comfort.

VC Challenge # 8

For the Victoria Case Stamps Challenge this week it is a color challenge of hot pink, orange, and white. This was a LOT of fun. There were speed challenges being hosted on the PCP Victoria Case group. One of them was circles. This polka dot paper inspired this card that works for both challenges! The image is one of the Victoria Case exclusive for SCACD.

Hot Stuff

Looking to hit the beach and keeping cool :). This is an image from Pink Petticoat. This card design is for the sketch challenge at Mojo Monday #95 as well as Digital Tuesday #15. Digital Tuesday challenge is a 1,2,3- 1 image, 2 patterned papers and 3 embellishments. I chose to interpret the 3 embellishments as 3 different kinds of embellishments :). Hope you enjoy this card. I love the bright colors for summer!

A house of boys

I and the cat are the only females in a house full of boys. Now, full here means 2 sons, a hubby and their assorted friends. That said, I am going to share some observations about living in a house where the boys out number the girls.

1-bodily functions are things to be discussed at length-especially if it gives you bragging rights

2-we have a family orthopedist

3-teenage boys smell, not a little, but a LOT! Candles and warmers just don't cut it, but sometimes you do what you have to do

4-appropriate dinner time conversation is subject to a much broader range of topics than I would really like it to be

5-humoring Mom and ooing and aahing over things pink, lacy or pretty is something required, not optional, even if you have no idea what the item is

6-calling a person names and insulting or teasing them mercilessly is actually a good thing because it means you like them

And finally----- the toilet seat stays up.

Victoria Case Challenge #7

The challenge this week for Victoria Case is a sketch. I am very pleased with the end result and hope you like it too. I think my favorite is the glitter eyelids, LOL! This image is a digi from Victoria Case titled Water Fairy. Not only is it a lovely image, but it is the image that first led me to find Victoria Case. I saw a card made with it at SCS and immediately Googled Victoria Case. I was instantly in love :).
