A beautiful b'day smile!!

I can't believe I scrapbooked on friday!!! It has been at least 6 to 8 months since I did any layouts. My sister in law had given me pics of our sweet little niece EMILY at her 2nd b'day,(which was Aug 2) I finally got to work on them before her 3rd b'day rolls around.

So her theme was DORA,she just adores her!!! I'm sure she's not the only little girl right! This first page is her having a little something to eat. Her smile brings joy to us all,she is one precious little miracle!!! I used my cricket machine for the letters and balloons and flowers. Stamped some flowers on some of the balloons and added her b'day napkin as a keepsake. I'm sure she'll enjoy looking at that when she's 22,lol!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend,it's monday again tomorrow and guess thing you know,it will be friday again!

Another stamp that was hiding!

I am so bad at buying some stamps and not using them! Maybe it's cause I just don't take enough time to play,cause it sure ain't because I buy too much,lol! We never have enough right?
I bought 2 Magnolias that I still haven't inked,I wish I could stay in my PJ's for a whole week and just stamp and scrap for the entire week.
Wishful thinking!!!!

On to the card...I used the Changito Dos set and the sentiment can be for just about anything. I'll just put another sentiment inside when I use the card.

Hope you are all having a fabulous week,the weekend is coming up again! It seems like it's always Monday and Friday. That can be a good thing or a bad thing.
Anyways... Hugs to all of you and Thanks for stopping by!

Blessed with a RAK!

Thanks CHRIS!!!

I was so happy to get some beautiful mail on friday from one of my blogging buddies Chris. She sent this cute little chick card with a beautiful season calendar she made,it just sits folded on my desk. I love it Chris ,you are such a sweetheart!

As for my acid reflux,looks like i'm going to have to put up with it for awhile. My hep's secratary called me today and said all they can do is do my gastroscopy test on April 16th instead of May 11th...if it gets worse to go to ER.

I'll hope for the best and really watch what I eat I guess.

Have a super tuesday friends!

Anya's in Da House!!!

Anya's in da house!!!! I got my first Anya stamp,of course it had to be the angel one!! And it won't be my last one,I just adore The Greeting Farm stamps,they are just too adorable.

I colored her with my SU watercolor crayons and the rest is pretty simple to see.

Feeling a bit better today,but I'm staying away from food as much as I can. I did leave a message at my Hep's office and of course the secratary called back when I was gone for my monthly bloodwork. So I will keep on trying to get a hold of her. If he can give me something else as meds,hopefully it will be better. That's all I need,is to get sick with an infection,then they would delay me on the list. Oh I just don't want to think about it,so frustrating to be sick!!!! But,like you all told me, the Good Lord will take care of it all!

Have a great week,tomorrow I'll be showing you 2 beautiful Raks I rec'd !!!

Anyways,have a super weekend!

A better and brighter day!

Hello dear friends,

Well I'm feeling a bit better today after thinking things through and calling my co-ordinator.
She apologized for not explaining things through her email,which took alot of stress off my shoulders. We will NOT have to pay for the flight going there,so I can only say it is a better day and the Lord answered one more prayer!!!!

My friend Chris from Catt's Scratching Post is having candy and you should go check it out!
Here's the link
She has something good so don't miss out!!!

Have a super weekend and HUGS to all of YOU!!! Diane

I need to vent

Hello friends,

I'm sorry I have nothing to post,but I need to vent,and writing it down feels better for me. Hope you don't mind,if you don't want to read it,it's ok,you'll still be my friend.

As time goes by my hubby and I are getting more nervous,anxious,fed up and every other emotion possible times 2. So yesterday I emailed my co-ordinator to see if there had been any changes on the list or any news or what not. So she emailed me back today saying that there was no change,still don't know how long it will be and like me, she is hoping soon.

And she adds, Do you have any drug benefit package,yes I do,it's an Ontario benefit package which I will need once the tx is done. So that's a good thing,and then she goes on by saying,there has been a change with the flights. Now, if it happens during the night that i get the call,they will arrange for an air ambulance,at first they had told me that my hubby and I could get on at not cost. Well now she says that they will ask me if we can afford to pay our flight there...duh!!!

I'm sorry but I don't have that kind of money except on a credit card. So I see that this will be very stressful on both of us.
And another she said was that if I get the call during the day,they want me to take a commercial flight. Well we live in a smaller town,which there's only like 3 flights a day going to Toronto,then I would have to transfer in Toronto to London,now will there be connections???

So right now,my head wants to pop open,I just want to scream,I just want to give up!!! If only I can get this all over and done with. I think the surgery will be less painful than all this stress!!!

Why is God not answering all these prayers???? I would never hurt a fly,why did this happen to me??? Like my Mother would tell me, God only gives you what you can handle. Well right now, I can't handle this,maybe tomorrow will be a better day.

Thanks for letting me vent, and have a wonderful day!

Quick and Simple!

Here are 4 more quick cards. Sorry about the pictures,it's actually purely pomegranate cardstock and ink. They look really good IRL,but the life of me,pics are not my department.
I even used the Fiskars on the card and in the inside.
Well,it is almost 9 pm and I will post this for monday. So I'm off to bed,i'm still recooperating from yesterday,lol.
Have a wonderful week my friends!!!

Hey everyone! I actually did something yesterday,lol! We went to our Godson's 7th B'day party.
I was mad though,I forgot to bring my camera,urghhh!!! We had fun though, he had 13 friends.
They played all kinds of games,decorated cookies which I found a neat idea. It is always a blast for my hubby and I cause we never had children so we just find everything they do and say so funny. We helped with the games,and the food,it was lots of fun! Oh and really liked the bike and helmet we got him!

Now on to the card. I rec'd a CELEBRATE stamp from Sheila at That's Jazzy Stamp Dreams,all you had to do is mention her 1 yr ann and she was sending a stamp to everyone that did.Pretty cool huh!!! She sells stamps,super cute ones,you should check them out.
With the stamp,she asked that if we wanted to send a card we made with it that she would put it in a slide show. Well,she was nice enough to send me a free stamp,it's the least I could do.
So Sheila,here's my card. I put sparkle all over the Celebrate sentiment and the green corners and the bunnies wings'. Here's the link to Sheila's blog so you can check it out
Have a super Sunday,

Same cards,different sentiments

I can't believe it,I made all these cards and cleaned the bathroom (a good massive scrub down) and did a bit of laundry!!!! Wow,that's lots for me,lol. I feel like doing spring clean up before I get my call but don't want to do too much either. But it would feel wonderful if it would be done before I leave.
On to the cards,I had rec'd these stamped images,diff colors,so I decided to make easy peasy cards with diff sentiments. They turned out pretty good for simple cards I think. And they'll make great cards to have on hand.

Friday is here already once again. Enjoy your weekend and I'll do the same!
Hugs for now,Diane

B'day card and weight discouragement!!

Here's a bright and colorful B'day card. I need a few of them for this month,so this will be one of them. I have to stamp some images for SCS Wish Rak. I've rec'd so many of them and haven't return as much as I should. So this afternoon I plan on working on that.

It's a work load in a half,but so much worth it I find. I love getting diff images.

You must of noticed that I haven't been talking about my weight loss anymore...well I had a hard time getting back on track since my holiday in Jan. I wanted to give it all up,got discrouraged,but my DH is helping me,he had a good pep talk with me and he's so right. Why give it all up,I worked so hard to get where I am,so just get back on the train and plug away!!!!

I was .4 of a pound away from my goal in December and now I'm 5.4 away from my goal. So I will work at it one pound at a time.

Have a wonderful hump day dear friends!

Thankful for...

I'm Thankful for all my bloggin buddies,you make me hanging on!!!

I can't wait for Spring like so many of you!! Here is another image from Wish Rak.The pic looks all funny at the bottom of her pants,but it's stickles that added,it looks good IRL. I added the MS butterfly punch in 3D and 2 primas and the sentiment is an old dollar stamp from Michael's. I used the CB folder for the card itself.

I had a pretty quiet weekend as usual. Not much happening in this household,lol.

So until next post...have a good day!!

It's all about carrotts

I rec'd this cute image through Wish Rak with these darling little punched out carrotts.Aren't they cute,so I used my MS leaf punch to add some greenery and had the carrott dp and ribbon.

So that's alot of carrotts going on. Like my mom use to tell me,eat all your carrotts,it's good for your eyes. Well Mom,I guess I didn't eat my carrotts cause my eyes are getting worse as I get older,...maybe I should start eating carrotts,lol!

Have a super weekend,hope you get some stamping done.

Note from Ebony

It was beautiful and sunny here in Northern Ontario,so I felt like springy card. The bg dp I bought from Michael's,it's got punched out flowers here and there,I found it cool. Then I used SU dp on top of the pink. I had colored the image first and since there was just a tad of pink in the image I decided to use pink for the card.

Anyways,I think she turned out pretty cute and I can use this for any occasion.

Have a super day,Hugs,Diane
