Stamping Dragon Designs

Lucky me!  I was just added to the design team of Stamping Dragon Designs

Hippy Love, need I say more?  Who doesn't remember putting patches on our jeans or maybe watching Laugh In?  Okay, I'm getting old; I made my son watch an episode and he didn't find it near as funny as I did.  The Hippy Love stamp was created by Stamping Dragon Designs and can be found at Dragons Lair Designs  The stamp is heart shaped and has stars scattered around it (hard to see in my picture, sorry).  Did I mention in an earlier blog that I like stamping, coloring, and scrapbooking??

More Cards

Here's one of the cards I am making for my Mom.

And a sympathy card I did for good friends at church.

I see London, I see France....

Chris just returned from London, he didn't get to go to France, he spent a lot of time with my husband's relatives.  He had a very nice trip and wants to return.  He is even debating completing college there.

Nice picture, I might make a photographer out of him yet!

Of course, there had to be a picture of an elephant.

M&M Designz

My anniversary card for my husband helped me land a spot on the M&M Designz design team. 

This stamp is Praying Child & Friend and I had lots of fun coloring it with my markers.  Growing up, my sister and I always said this prayer before going to sleep.  You can find this precious stamp at Digital-Ink Co. and search under M&M Designz.  Take a peak at all of  her stamps.

Happy Anniversary Sweetheart

Last, but not least, is my wonderful husband Steve.  November 8th was our 23rd wedding anniversary.  He said it only felt like 10 years....for him, this is a compliment to me.  He has always been there for me and our family.  I couldn't have asked for a better man!

I wish the picture was clearer, guess I'll have to ask my teenager how to fix it.  I found this M&M Designz image at Digital-Ink Co. and it was perfect for my anniversary card to my husband.

My Handsome Son, Chris

Can't forget my handsome son, Chris.  He is my mission trip partner.  We have been to Kenya three times, we both love it there!  Chris has been designing jewelry for over 4 years (he's only 19).  His latest show was Saturday. 

He asked me to make him 100 Thank You cards to pass out to customers - now you know what I have been doing with all my spare time!

My Beautiful Daughter, Carol

I sponsor a beautiful girl who lives in Nairobi, Kenya at the Havilla Children's Orphanage.
Carol Muthoni, 15
Her birthday was November 11th, this is the card I made for her.

Here is the elephant I promised you.  I sent this card to Carol also, it is extra special because it was for her and the elephant is my favorite animal of Africa.

Tired yet?

Tired of looking at my cards yet?  This is what happens when you don't update regularly and people keep asking to see your work.


I enjoy doing flowers - they remind me of a smile.


Most of you know, Missions is my passion!  I love the people, especially the children of Africa.  Kenya is where I have my second home (don't I wish!).  These are some card I made of African animals.  Each animal is hand colored.

I didn't forget the elephant, you will see it later - it is extra special to me!
