Mother's Day Cards

I think it's safe to post these since Mother's Day is just around the corner.

I used a piece of Sweet Pea Desinger paper, satin ribbon that I gathered and pressed onto a strip of sticky strip. I used a neutral button and linen thread. I embossed the greeting in white. The stamp set is called Whimsical Words.

Here is another version of this card using a different pattern.

I hope you all get a chance to celebrate a special mother in your life...or get spoiled yourself!!

Happy Stamping, Krista

I'm Finally Feeling Alive!

Hi Stampers,
I write to you as if I'm writing a letter. This is to thank you for all of your support over the last 2 weeks. It has been a roller coaster for me and my family. For those of you that don't know, Bryan and I are expecting baby #3! WOW...shocker, I know. We are getting used to the idea. In the meantime, I became severly dehydrated and lost quite a bit of weight in just a matter of days. So my doctor decided to admit me into the hospital to get rehydrated and on anti-nausea meds. After 2 days and nights there, I came home and was hooked up to another IV for fluids and a pump for the anti-nausea meds. I have been able to eat and drink over the last few days and took out the IV a few days ago, but I am still on the anti-nausea meds and will be for quite a while. I am definitely feeling better, not 100%, but I am good with that! Please continue to pray that the baby and I stay healthy during the rest of the pregnancy and that my family is provided for.

Now on to some stamping stuff...
At my next workshop I will be teaching you a new technique called Emboss Resist. You will also learn how to make your own background paper and create a beautiful vintage wall hanging. Here are photos of some of my creations.

Don't forget that you will get to choose your main color for your project. YOu can choose to use the Pretty In Pink like I did or any other of SU!'s 54 colors!

I'll be sending out the evite really soon once I work out all the logistics of the event.

Happy Stamping,
