Little Girl Birthday Card


We went to a birthday party for little Anna this past weekend, and she was turning 3! Well, I had to break out the cute Alphabet set from Penny Black. It is a clear stamp set, and for anyone that knows me as a stamper, I'm very reluctant to use clear stamps. I never really have gotten a great image. So, I took this adorable alphabet, and I roughed it up a bit! That definitely made a difference! The image came out really well after a couple of tries. So, I will look differently at quality clear stamps from now on! (you can teach an old dog new tricks!)

Today is my husband's 38th birthday, and he is feeling a bit reflective today, especially about his own mortality. I know to some that 38 isn't very old, but when you are just turning that age, it may seem a little daunting. In addition, his brother had surgery to remove a tumor from his brain at Duke University Medical Center. The surgery went well, but now it is just a waiting game to see what the outlook is. This is his second surgery to remove the tumor as he had one about 5+ years ago. The whole situation just rocks us to the core, and we are praying harder than we ever have before.

Sorry to get off the crafting topic, but sometimes you just have to write it out to let it out. Hug your husband, child, mother, father, sister, brother, and whomever you love today for me!!
