Please Pray for Trucker Duke

There is a little guy named Trucker who needs a miracle...he is a battle for his life....He is 19 months old and has been diagnosed with stage 4 is a link to his story Click Here.

I was so moved by this story that I just wanted to do something to help.  I had a craft show that I was going to be doing on Dec. 6th so I decided to make 10 hand-stamped leather bracelets to sell for $20 each with all the money going to Trucker's Cancer Fund.

I sold 7 and was able to give the money to Trucker's Grandma who was there along with 2 bracelets for Mom and Dad.  She asked if I was going to be selling then anywhere and I did not have an answer for her.  June K Harper a professional photographer and the administrator of the Team Trucker Facebook page, called me to say they had had requests for the bracelets and how could people order them?  I had set up an Etsy Store and never did anything with it so I decided to list the bracelets for people to buy.  It has been 6 days and I have sold 18 bracelets through Etsy that is $360 plus I have sold an additional 8 at church so that is a total of $520 going to Trucker's Cancer Fund...Thank you Jesus!!

PLEASE PRAY for Trucker...he needs a miracle, but our God is a God of miracles!!  If you feels moved to donate go here  If you would like to order a bracelet...all of the $20 goes to Trucker's Fund go HERE

Thanks for hopping by and PLEASE Pray for Trucker!!

the Stamps of Life October 2014 Stamp and Die Club

Here is a card I made with the snowman2build club stamp and dies.  These sets are so cute and there is so much you can do with them.  

I die cut the snow man and all of his parts out of white cardstock and colored them with my copic markers.  I stamped his eyes and mouth with the stamp set and drew his carrot nose with copics.  For the background I die cut snowflakes using the Christmas Disks set.  I then sprayed the background and the snowman with shimmer mist.  I love how it turned out!

I Love to Color

I spent some time coloring in a Saturated Canary Digital stamp this weekend.  It is called Traveling Colors and I think she is just so cute with her big bag of markers.  

I colored her using a combo of Shinhan markers and copics.  The sentiment is from The Stamps of Life words4crayons

I also made my Ribbons girl into a card.  

It is so relaxing to just sit and color.....takes me back to my childhood and seriously who doesn't want to be a kid!!

Gorjuss Stamps

This weekend I spent with my fellow "cult" members for our annual Staycation Crop.  Iris's husband gets a a couple of rooms and we spend the weekend creating, chatting, eating, laughing and a bit of sleeping.  It is so much fun and is hard to leave and enter back into the real world on Sunday afternoon!!!  

I borrowed Harriette's Gorjuss Stamp is so CUTE.  I just love this girl!!!!  I stamped it twice and colored it with my Shinhan markers. 

I like the top one best....I made a few booboos on the bottom one...can you see them?  ;)  

Here are a few pictures of the fun we had...I LOVE these ladies!!!
