Grateful Hearts





I am so thankful to God for all the blessing he has given me. Gary, Jeffrey, Amy, Amanda and Scott fill my heart with love. These are some cards I made to let them know how thankful I am that they are all part of my life!
The stamps I used are D1379 Flourished Blessings and C1372 Grateful Hearts. Making these cards was so much fun and I just love the way the leaves turned out. I stamped everything using orange, chocolate, sunflower and autumn terracotta. I hope you enjoy them and I would love to hear your feedback.
I wish you all a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving holiday.

For my son's wedding!

Some of you already know that my son got married on September 26, 2009, just 10 days before he deployed to Iraq for the second time. It was my pleasure to make the invitations, gift card box and guest register for them. The card box is the CTMH My Creations Memory Keeper and the guest book is the CTMH My Creations 3 Ring Binder. I loved making these things for my son and new daughter and CTMH made the job easy with their wonderful products. Their theme was bamboo and the colors were CTMH cocoa and CTMH olive. The tag on the bamboo plant and other items is a custom CTMH stamp.

Please keep my son and all of the men and women that serve our country in your daily prayers.
