Prayers, please

I haven't been getting anything created. My life has been crazy lately.

Please pray for my boss, Jim. He was diagnosed with cancer (incurable but treatable to extend his life). He's in pain and discomfort so we are praying the docs can get his meds regulated so he can get on with life. Pray also for his wife, Nancy. She is in treatment for breast cancer. When it rains, it pours.

Before his diagnosis, we were talking about me buying the insurance agency so he could retire. We are going forward but with more urgency!

Lots and lots of changes...but I'm thankful for strength and peace and hope. God is faithful...He answers our prayers in just the right way (even if it's not what we think we need).

Hopefully things will settle down soon so I can get back to creating cards.

I will never forget

I will never forget the fear I felt that day (and for a long time after)...I will never forget looking to sky and knowing there were no planes flying anywhere over the US...I will never forget the panic trying to reach my sister who works in DC and drove past the Pentagon to get to work (she was there 10-15 minutes before the plane crashed)...I will never forget calling my mom to let her know my sister was okay and having to tell her that we were under attack (she had been outside gardening)...I will never forget the brave men and women who saved countless lives...I will never forget those who lost their lives...

I will never forget that America is the greatest country on earth and I'm proud to be an American.

One more card 9-5-10

I got one more card done. Remember, I do multiples...that's why I'm not getting much done. Or could it be I'm just not in the mood?? Aaakkkk....I need to get in the mood. I want to get a box ready for OWH to help meet the need of our military deployed.

Here is a card that I got from Me, My Stamps & I. Her's is so much prettier. Much richer looking.

OWH Sketch 34 - 9-5-10

Here is the sketch challenge from Operation Write Home. If you haven't been to their site, please check it out. Not only is it cardmaking for some pretty awesome people but they have some fun challenges and great cards to look at!

Here is my take:

And then I actually read the directions and realized it was supposed to be a thank you card, so I did this one!

Going to use up so scraps and make more with this design!
