Clean 'n Simple (yah right)


Mo's Challenge Blog has another challenge.  It took me two attempts to actually be able to claim it "clean 'n simple.  I just don't do that kind of stuff...its not in my blood!  I am posting my second attempt first.  This image really can just stand on its own.  it is so full of detail and such a cheery image.  I have to admit I did sneak a little subtle bling onto the card.  The rules were...no layering and only 1 piece of ribbon....arrrrggggg.  It was fun I have to admit...just challenging!  
Now compare that to my first attempt...lol....so much activity I think I will just go throw up...lol...what is wrong with me?



Thanks for looking and all the wonderful comments keep me making tons more messes in my studio

Our World is Brighter - (Dustin Pike Does it again)


...With you around!

This card was made for a 10 your old girl named Delia who was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia on December 11th, 2009. She is on her second round of chemo and its been a struggle for her, although she is doing better today, it has been a roller coaster that no-one should have to ride. This is a request to make a little girls day brighter by sending her a card.

I sent the request to Dustin Pike at Doodle Dragon Studios to give a shout-out to all his fans (because he can reach way more people then I ever could), and ask for people to contribute a card for Delia...He not only did a shout-out, but to anyone who is willing to make a card... if you email him at dustin_pike@yahoo.com he will email you back some wonderful owl images he drew up for this special little girl who LOVES owls. She is also taking photography and art class in the hospital so his images were just perfect for her. So jump over to his blog and check out what he has donated for this wonderful cause. I thank you with all my heart..and a little girl named Delia (who will be very surprised) thanks you too! Lets make this Valentines day overflowing with love and cards! You can mail all card to:

Att: Delia Cadwallader
2048 Sandhurst Dr.
Castle Rock, CO 80104

Delia with her pretty new wig. (notice the owl necklace she is wearing).

Be sure and hop over to Dustin 's blog and send him some love for all he has done. He is a kind and giving talented artist whom I really appreciate. Feel free to pass on Delia's info so we can get more cards, and prayers and kind thoughts heading her way!

MY LOVE LETTER TO MY SON FEBRUARY 7, 2010

DEAR TO MY HEART
DEAR TO MY HEART IS MY LITTLE BOY,
YOU SEEM SO FAR AWAY.
THE TIME THAT YOU ARE GONE MAKES
FOR SAD, AND LONELY DAYS.

YOU ARE JUST AROUND THE CORNER,
AND YOUR HEART IS BOUND TO MINE.
BUT MY YEARS WITHOUT YOU SEEM SO
LONG, EVEN IN THIS AMOUNT OF TIME.
I LOVE YOU MONTY OH SO VERY MUCH,
OUR BONDING STARTED 13 YEARS AGO.
THIS IS SOMETHING THAT NO ONE CAN TAKE
NO MATTER THE WORDS THAT THEY THROW.
REMEMBER, I LEFT DADDY BECAUSE I LOVE YOU.
I WANTED YOU TO SEE RIGHT FROM WRONG.
YOU MIGHT NOT UNDERSTAND RIGHT NOW, BUT
I HOPE YOU’LL SEE BEFORE LONG.

MY WISH FOR YOU TO SEE,
GOOD EXAMPLES OF GENTLENESS AND LOVE.
TO LEARN TO RESPECT, HONOR AND OBEY.
YOU’LL BE REWARDED BY THOSE YOU LOVE.

SO MY BELOVED MONTY,
LIVE YOUR LIFE WITH NO REGRETS.
LET US BE HAPPY FOR TODAY.
REMEMBER I LOVE YOU AND
WANT FOR YOU THE BEST.

YOUR MOMMY

In Case of Emergency - Break Glass

Okay, I made this using A starbucks drink holder and covered it with paper, bling, ribbons and flowers. I then put some bottles of wine in it and a label "In case of emergency, Break Glass". I feel an emergency coming on....lol.






Imagine

Mo's Digital Pencil has a challenge going on. We are to use wood as inspiration, wether it be "wood", "would", or faux wood. This is what I came up with. I took her image and removed the curtain. I made it so you are looking from the outside in, instead of the inside out. Her images are so amazing!
