Hello! I'm finally around again and keeping my fingers crossed that hubby can keep it together! Poor guy has had it so bad! I just wish it could get better for him. He had his surgery Friday before last for his herinated disk and is doing GREAT! Thank you GOD!!! I thought since he had company and I get a little break I'd come by and share some cards that I made using last months Close to my Heart Stamp of the Month! It has to be one of my all time favorites but I do love Halloween so that has a lot to do with it. The name of the stamp is called "wicked".

Thursday, September 15, 2011


Don't you just love this new stamp that Queen Kat Designs added NEW to the store this month! It's PERFECT for Halloween! She reminds me too of being in the forest and a sign next to her saying this way or wrong way haha! I of course didn't think of that idea until I was done with the card! can purchase this stamp and many others from this collection that are perfect just in time for Halloween! The name of this stamp is called "thought that matter" by Natalie VonRaven. I hope you enjoyed my card and have a Happy Friday! :)

Hello & Happy Friday!

What a crazy day it was yesterday for us! My hubby ended out in the ER on top of that had to go to his pre-opt appointment and the fitting for his neck brace. He is scheduled for surgery next week to get his herniated disk fixed. Oh GOD I pray this takes most of the pain he is having away! I just need him back to himself. It's really sad seeing him suffer :( Please any prayers will be greatly appreciated by all!

Anyways, back to a good notes! The card I am sharing with you today is made of course by me using one of the newest stamps that will be released this month! The name of this stamp is called "witch" and is by Shannon Justice from the Lollipop Labs Studios. You can view and purchase it from the Queen Kat Designs store!

Thanks for visiting me today! Have a great day!
