Thanks a Bunch!

Hello my friends!  I have good news.  My little furbaby is indeed getting better.  Although he still vomited today, he was back to his old self barking at his food mat.  You have to understand Sammy to know that when he's barking at the place mat we use to put his food on because he won't eat out a bowl, he is demanding either to be fed or wants water!!!  This little three year old runs the house, I'm tellin ya!  So I gave him a couple handfuls of dog food (the first he's had in a week).  So far, so good... we'll see how he tolerates solid food.  Whew!

I have even better news!!!  My brother-in-law, who has been battling cancer, has just been told that the cancer is gone!  Praise God!!!  The same God who healed me from cancer two times, has now healed my brother-in-law!  Are you ill?  Do you have a problem that seems hopeless?  I am here to tell you that Jesus is the answer.  No, not religion...  A real, personal relationship with the Living God.  Even if you don't believe that He exists, tell Him that.  Ask Him to reveal Himself to you and He will!!!  I pray for you, my friends.  May you find true peace through Jesus Christ who died for us so we can live forever with Him.  And now... may His loving arms surround you and comfort you, bringing peace to your soul!

Wow!  I was not planning that... someone who is reading this right now needs the Lord.  You know that He has been calling you and you've been resisting.  Please don't resist anymore.  Tomorrow is not promised to any of us.  Cancer, illness, death can happen to anyone at anytime.  I want to see YOU in heaven.  Contact me through email.  I am here for you!

Ok... on to my warm and fuzzy card I promised to show ya today.  I used a stamp set from Crafter's Companion called Popcorn the Bear.  This is an unmounted rubber stamp set entitled, "Thanks a Bunch."  You can find it HerePaper Romance has the cutest rubber stamps!  I am loving working with them.  Amy is continuing to stock more and more items in her store.  She now has embellishments such as ribbon, brads and flowers.  Also new is Cute Companions which come as a sheet of unmounted 6 x 6 rubber.  They are adorable!!!  Check out Paper Romance Here.

Bear and flower centers:  E37 E35 E34 E33 E31 E30 R20
Flower petals: R39 R85 R83 R81
Leaves and stems: G99 G94 G85 G82
Duck: Y21 Y11 Y00 YR04 YR02

It might not look like it, but I actually used all seven copic markers as described above to get the bear to look like this.  Do you think he looks fuzzy?  I'm still practicing and having fun : )  What ever did I do before copics?  I am so in love...

Oh... one last thing.  My counter has now gone over 10,000 hits.  You know that means some celebrating is gonna happen soon.  I'm waiting for a few things from the mail man : )  Keep watching!!!

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul ~
