We also found out that Bruno's Great-Uncle passed away. Apparently there was a rosary for him yesterday. Would've been nice to know BEFORE it took place.
There is no info on funeral arrangements for anyone at this time.
This was for Beate's weekend sketch challenge: WSC31
I used my new set "Always", colors used were real red, soft sky, & bayou blue.
Playing with another new set, "Happy Heart Day". Colors used were real red, sage shadow, & apricol appeal.
This is for the SCS new technique challenge to make a Pixie Pocket.
My cutting station:
Stamping tables: the one on the left is for DD, the one on the right is mine & has all the stuff I use all the time: stamp cleaning pad, markers, stazon pads, adhesives, bone folder, cutting mat w/grid, & scrap paper for protecting table from ink & jotting down card recipes.
This is how I'm organizing my paper. Sorted by Color Family into wilsonjones view-tab sorters (3/family). The red bag in the front is for trash.

I finally finished the invitations for DD's 13th birthday party! Don't you just love them? As much as I'd love to take credit for the design, I must admit I was completely inspired by this card done by DisneyDoll over at Splitcoast Stampers.
I went to the local scrapbook store and picked up all the paper, metal-rimmed tags, and the number stamps which are by Gel-a-tins.

And yes, I do realize this is like my 4th or 5th Horton post, but to know him is to love him!

This one is for the Faux Silk Technique over at Splitcoast Stampers
It pretty simple, but the colors ran more than I'd like. I did actually like the way the colors looked on the cardstock I placed underneath. It had a wonderful watercolor effect. I guess I need to explore that a bit further.
This one is for the Sketch Challenge at Splitcoast. I made this for a friend whose wife just had a baby.
When my DH started flying the B-52 about 18 yrs ago, Mark was his first Aircraft Commander. Which is pretty incredible since he was new to the aircraft. He came from another aircraft and was in training with my DH.
So anyway, he FINALLY got married and he and his wonderful wife, Gina, welcomed their 1st baby, a girl last night.
Believe it or not, I actually managed to make a couple cards in that mess today! I'll post those in a bit.
I only hope you're not too traumatized by these images.

Now that the Holidays are behind us and things are getting back to normal, I'm planning on getting back to crafting soon. First I need to find the top of my craft tables. Yes, that's tables with an "s"! It's pretty scary up there right now.
My DD (she's 7) was up there "creating" one day last week. She came down to show me her latest card creation when I noticed the Ticket Card Punched corners. I asked her if it was a scrap that was already like that or if she did the corners. Well she did them. Seems that punch was on top of the table all along. I've been looking for that thing for weeks! WHO KNEW?!?
So yep, it's pretty scary up there! Wish me luck!

Thank you for your continued prayers.
Today's info: the cancer has spread to his brain as well. He is to go home tomorrow (01/05).

Yesterday we got an e-mail from DH's Aunt Brenda. Apparently his Uncle Tony has not been feeling well. She took him in for several tests and things are not good at all. He has Stage IV Lung Cancer which has spread to his liver and his spine. Doctors were hoping to start chemotherapy as early as today. He smoked for about 41 years but quit last year. Tony is about 62. He and Brenda never had children. We are planning to see him at the hospital this afternoon.
Your prayers are greatly appreciated.
