Hey everyone!  It is Saturday and that means it is time for this week’s Drunken Stampers challenge!  I took a little break for the last term, but I am BACK!  Okay, this week’s challenge is all about birds.  Any kind of bird is cool, we just want to see them on your cards and projects.

Paper: Bazzill Beach House, Bazzill Card Shoppe – Peanut Cluster, Candy Bar  Stamps: Your Next Stamp – Grad Owl  Ink: A Muse dye, Copic markers  Accessories: Glossy Accents, Natural Jute, Pearls.

I am at Mom’s for the weekend, it feels so good to relax after the last to weeks of work.  I packed all my markers and a bunch of stamps so I am hoping that I can do a little coloring!

I hope you all have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Help 4 Katie ~ A Special Request

***Please scroll down for my YNS post.***

I am writing this morning about and for Katie Renz you can meet her HERE on her Card blog and HERE on her Family Blog. 
Many of you may know that she has a wonderful husband, 3 beautiful little boys, that she is a super Mommy and way talented crafter…she also has Stage 4 Gastic Cancer.

Today, her husband wrote an update on her blog. This is so sad; our hearts are broken and we continue to pray for Katie’s Miracle!!!!!  AND YOU CAN HELP

We’re trying to get the word out to both cover Katie with prayer and bless the Renz family with a financial gift.  
LORi Boyd was asked at the start of the year to design a stamp for Katie and her family. She ended up getting an email from Katie, herself telling her how much she loved it. Katie said it really was her boys and was very appreciative.

So, at this time LORi and the rest of us would like to do a HUGE push of this image for The Renz Family!
It just so happens that Katie’s 2 little guys have a birthday on the 19th of this month and her older boy has one on the 1st of December. The hope would be that we all could bless them with a wonderful birthday and Christmas, so that Kevin and Katie do not have to think or worry about that (especially in light of the medical bills they are incurring too)!

The stamp is shown above in the Help4Katie logo, but I’ve also included an example below, of a card made by LORi.
You can help this cause and BLESS THE RENZ FAMILY, by purchasing this stamp for $5. And then you can bless them further (if you wish) by creating a card and sending it to them (CLICK HERE for details on where to send your card).


or if you’d like to donate what you wish:

_________All donations will receive a random image__________ 


AND if ANY of you would like to help spread the word on EVERY forum,
blog, etc etc you can think of, then the proceeds will go to The Renz
Family. We know she would be so appreciative that we are helping to wrap her
boys with our love and care.

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for supporting and loving Katie and her Family!   

PLEASE keep Praying for Katie’s Miracle!!
The donation links are not working here please go to By Lori Designs to purchase the stamp or to make a donation.  Thank you.

Flutter By Wednesday #174

Hey everyone!  I haven’t been feeling great the last couple of days, the kids keep insisting on sharing all their germs with me and I haven’t finished my card yet for this week’s Flutter By Wednesday challenge.  It is an open challenge, one of my faves, just remember to use a butterfly, fairy or angel on your cards!  We are also being sponsored by Delicious Doodles this week and one lucky winner will get 4 digi’s!!!  How fun!  You can see what the rest of the team has been up to by clicking the links on my sidebar.

Hopefully I have a card to show you all soon!

My Quilt

Happy Monday everyone!  I don’t have a card for you today, but I do have a picture of the quilt my Mom made for Lee and I.  She has been working on this for years, doing little bits at a time and then ripping it apart again because she didn’t like the look, well she finally finished it!  She drew the idea out and used that as her pattern, I want to get the picture and frame it as it is just a wonderful!

I know she is reading this now so this is for her, I told you I would take a picture!  I keep getting asked for a picture and I finally took one, I am sure she is in shock right now!  LOL 

That is it for me to day, I am off to visit Lisa and then the grocery store.  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
