~For Sou~

My cousin called me a few weeks ago to tell me her fiancée was diagnosed with leukemia. It was such a shocker. They flew on a private jet plane the next day to Seattle for treatment. I've been talking with her almost everyday to see how he's doing. So far he's alright. He's had two surgeries and he's got 8 more days of chemo. I told her I'll make a bunch of cards for her to sell to help pay for whatever they need. These are all I made so far. I made 5 cards each night and this is just the 3rd night. Thanks to my friends who also offered to make cards with their creations. I'll be sure to post those as soon as I get them.

cuppy cake

I went shopping at J's Knicknacks today during my lunch hour. I took an early lunch just so I could be there at opening. Their entire store is 30% off. You still have tomorrow and Wednesday in case you missed it. Anyway, I made this card tonight because the idea popped into my head. I wanted to try it out and see how it would come it is =)

Welcome Baby

I wanted to make a fast card before my friend comes over. I just felt like scrapping! I haven't in a while because I got burned out from the craft fair and xmas orders. Then came all the holiday parties and blah blah blah. Come to think of it - this is my first card in the new year!! I used the puppy in the Welcome Baby set from Close To My Heart. These stamps are new from the Spring 09 catalog. And oooh....I love the cupcake set! My friend gave them to me since she knows I love dogs and cupcakes. I'll post pics of the cupcake ones as soon as I get to them. On a separate note, Happy New Year everyone!! =)
