Way too long!

I didn't realize it had been so long since I last posted! I have so much going on right now...I guess "life" just got in the way!

I'm working on some cards for my upcoming classes, so as I finish them I thought I would post a few. This card is for my Elegant Christmas class at Angela's Happy Stamper (Nov. 23). This shot doesn't show it very well, but it's very ***sparkly**** IRL. I stamped the tree (on this card I made it branches) with grey Versafine, outlined it with a Quicky Glue Pen, and used ultra fine glitter.

I hope to be better at posting cards. Come back soon!

Go Pink!!!!

This weekend the 3Day Walk for the Cure is going on in Washington, DC. Hundreds (thousands?) of women and men are participating in this joyous and (I'm told) life altering event. Alicia (center) is a colleague from our Memphis who is a 3 year survivor. Our staff here in Falls Church decided to go and support her and her friends! I thought I was going to give support, but I think I really got more out of it! These women (and men too) are just incredible, whether they are survivors or supporters. They have so much joy, energy and determination it brought tears to my eyes. All I could do was thank them for their courage.
As we waited for Alicia and her friends to walk by, I heard someone call my name. It was Tami McVey a customer and friend from Angela's Happy Stamper! It was such a wonderful surprise that all Icould do was give her a hug. I wish I had been able to take a picture with her.
These wonderful people will be walking 60 miles over the next few days. Go Tami!!! Go Alicia!!!
