Year in Review

2014 in Review…


Happy New Year’s Eve Day!

The sun is shining and warming me up! Take off the gloves and type! haha

So…what did I do in 2014?  Good thing I blog and have something to jog my memory! eek!

January is a busy month with a new release from Memory Box…

I had fun working with stencils and an embossing technique on this card…

It’s been a great year!  Sharing with friends old and new! Our family is looking forward to more blessings in 2015!  Grandchild #17 is due mid March! So much to be thankful for but at the same time I can’t help but be touched by the agony of loss in Asia right now. My heart goes out to the families that have lost loved ones.  It has touched our design team for Tilda’s Town. Joe Shien Shien’s brother and family from Indonesia were on that plane.  It’s been so neat to see the stamping community from all over the world reaching out to her and surrounding her with love and prayers. Thank you all for your friendship and support.  Even though we are miles apart, we span the distance with our caring, supportive community.  God bless you all!  Thank you for being there!
