Who needs a kitten?

 Who needs a kitten when you have Mandy?!   She had alot of fun with my yarn today.

It did take me a few minutes to unwind the yarn.  I have no idea how many spins she made with the yarn, but it was alot.

Never a dull moment with her!!

Here are pictures of her head a week after her wheel chair flipped on its side on the school bus.  What do you think, will it heal on its own?

She is still cute after all! (yeah, huh, even some who aren't her mom said so!)

Forehead Reveal and Wedding Card

Now here's a gorgeous forehead! NOT!
But it is a cancer free forehead!!
It's been about 5 weeks since the skin graft.
I am looking forward to seeing it in about 2 months.
Oh, did you notice that her hair is growing back?  I still think the comb over is the way to go.
 Mandy really didn't want to take a picture, but I guess she's learned that the sooner she takes these pictures, the sooner she can get away!

This is a wedding card I did for a swap.  I love all the shimmer paint and gold layered cardstock.

The inside.

Yesterday, I mailed off 190 cards.  (I thought it was 200, but I guess I carried an extra one to the tens place.)  All the cards went to Operation Write Home.  The whole time I am turning my many years'  worth of card fronts into cards, I am thinking of how happy a loved one back home will feel when their family member or friend who is in the service of our country sends them a little love with a fold in a middle.  That just cheered me up so much!  I am planning my next box, which will include Valentine/Love You cards.
Have a blessed day!  ek

VC Rocks August 2010 Swaps

 Here are two swaps:
A different kind of Christmas card.  I used Love Letters DSP and Perfect Punches.

This was Inspired by  page 120 in the catalog.  I love the Printed Petals stamp set and the new rhinestones and pearls!

Two cards I made for the card contest:

This is the one I entered, but didn't win.  My colors were a little too bright in this picture.  Real Red and Concord Grape look so elegant together with the Brushed Gold embossing and cardstock.

Have a blessed day!
