Willo Dean Campbell 9.2.24 - 10.22.08

Hello all. If you've followed this blog for long, then you've met my friend Willo Dean, Willo Dean Campbell. Last Wednesday, she graduated from this life into heaven. She was bound here by dementia but loosed in heaven to praise the Lord for all of eternity. I spent lots of time with Willo Dean, learning much even in the final days of her life. I hope to live the rest of my days with such grace.

1. She liked to work hard but have fun.
2. She knew true contentment in whatever life had to offer.
3. She was grateful at every turn.

May HIS blessings shine so brightly in all our lives!

It all came together. . . MoJo 57

Thanks to Julie, it all came together. Remember the baby card, the sugar paper, here it is. Thanks Julie, great layout.

Sugar Pie

Howdy, I think my friend Suzy said this shiny shimmery paper is called sugar something. I forgot. I love, it's glitter and shine with out the mess. I bought 4 or 5 pieces to make my niece some baby girl cards. Cut up a few pieces and the baby card simply didn't come together. Well, I couldn't let the pieces go unused. They became this thank you note.

The papers is part of doodlebug design inc. They have brads and other embellishments to go with. Yippee!

Being Thankful / Color Throwdown 15

Well Fall is upon us in Texas. That's something to be grateful for. I love the cool breeze in the air, the smell of a fireplace in the distance. Ah, to await the smell of Apple pie.
Today I'm also especially grateful for my job. I work for a large package goods company and we went through a layoff today. I landed on my feet still employed but I can only pray for the unknown names let go today.
Since I was given this unexpected day off (except for my 10 minute meeting) I went to the movies. I saw Billy, the Early Years. It was a great movie , I would strongly recommend it to anyone needing a lift.

Full Moon. / Mojo 56

On my way home tonight there was the prettiest full moon. I couldn't get it out of my head so when I tried Julee's sketch, I had to incorporate it into my card. It's simply but fun. The stamp is by Rubber Soul, "Cats on Fence".
Have a good evening.

Best Fishes for Color ThrowDown 14

Well, maybe these aren't my best fish but they do swim with good wishes. It's been a few weeks since I've been able to do this challenge. I like it because I like to color! I found the stamp at Addicted to Rubber Stamps. Remember * Swimming against the current makes the bigger splash!

OCC bling

Good morning. OK, it's been awhile because last week I was very busy getting ready for the Austin Card Swap and working considerable overtime. Whatever I was doing, it was NOT getting enough zzzz on top of everything else. I was pumped to see the OCC challenge was bling. I love it. Don't wear it, don't have it. However, I do love it in the form of glitter. The gals I roomed with for the swap said they didn't like the mess, the dust in your clothes, on your skin, etc. Please that's exactly why I love it. Accessorizing, made easy! ")
The stamp is Tink with balloons and the paper is called Sugar paper, I think!

To quote my friend.

To quote my friend Suzy, my tired is STILL hanging out and dragging down the street. I had such a nice time this weekend, stamping with over 40 other gals in Austin. This group picture , I believe was posted by Joy. Look what a beautiful day it was! We had such a great time, I even won *** TWO *** great door prizes. 1) a ribbon holder with some assted ribbon. 2) a gift certificate to MFT with a cute bucket of ribbon from Jodi and a fabulous card crafted by Jen DelMuro. Thanks one, thanks all! So much fun!
