My Sweet Son

It is with a very heavy heart that I share with you the news of the passing of my youngest son, John Anthony on November 4, 2014. John was only 37 years old and spent most of his adult life fighting the demons of drug addiction that took his life.  John had a very loving heart, always willing to give all that he had to those in need. It was not uncommon for him to approach a total stranger and give them a compliment just to see them smile. If you met John, he considered you his friend for life.

Captain Gneng

Attention all space cadets! This is Captain Gneng speaking direct from the headquarters of Dr. Digi's House of Stamps. This is to advise you that it won't be long before we will see a big jolly man dressed in red traveling across our galaxy at a high rate of speed. He will be in a sled filled with toys for good boys and girls lead by eight reindeer that will be lively and quick! Therefore, it is ordered and decreed that you will hold your fire and give any and all assistance necessary to aide the traveler in reaching his destinations! Remember, I got my eyes on you! Over and out!

Poop Happens

When I'm shopping for digital images, given a choice between pretty and funny, I'll go with funny every time! So it should be no surprise that when I spotted Poop Happens while shopping at Mo's Digial Pencil, my funny bone kicked into gear. I can't look at the image without laughing, don't know how I managed to get it colored and turned into a card!

Flossie Bumblethorpe

If you see dear old Flossie Bumblethorpe, aimlessly wondering the halls at Dr. Digi's House of Stamps, don't mind her, she's trying to find where she left her dentures! She claims to have lost them in a poker game! Yesterday she was looking for her undies and tomorrow, who knows what she'll be looking for!

Scrapy Land Challenge #4

Welcome to Scrapy Land Challenge #4 - Halloween! To create my shaker card I stamped and heat embossed the background papers with an old time favorite background stamp of bats and colored it with distress inks. I used the Die-Versions, Sweet Petites Witch die from Scrapy Land and embossed her black.  The moon was cut by using two sizes of circle dies and then I added glitter and sequins for the 'shaker' part of the card. I hope you have time to join the haunting fun with your Halloween card.  Please stop by the Scrapy Land Challenge for all the details and see what the other members of the design team have created!
