Car Accident

Hello all my beautfiul bloggy friends!!

You will never know how nice it is for me to be able to say that... My sister and I were in a car accident  where the car flipped 2 and a half times doing 70 km.... we came out with NO broken bones or any major injuries ...
 We were in shock the first couple of days  and realizing Troy's car is totally smashed and rode off , we are shocked that we are alive!!!!  We could never be so grateful as what we are, it is so beautiful to be alive and in great shape with that!

I was driving on a straight patch of road when the wheels on the back started sliding to the right which turned us sideways  ( black ice )  There was no warning whatsoever!!  We flipped over the edge of the road down into a ditch.. I remember a peace that came over me and I  never felt so calm in my life... I said " Norma , we are going to be ok"  three times.... even as I was upside down in the car in mid flip I said the same thing and honestly I had absolutely no fea…

Hello! I hope you are all doing well and relaxed at the same time preparing for Christmas!! There were things I couldn't get done but I am OK with that. Life presents challenges at times we don't expect , there is no specific date and many of you are facing those challenges as I write this so to worry about not getting cards complete or a gift sent  would be only adding to the stress. I would love for all of you to be the watcher of your thoughts as you prepare for Christmas , don't judge your thoughts in any way or resist them, just watch and be aware. Are you giving a gift or card out pure love? or because that person is buying you a gift and you don't want to be judged? Lets try and make this Christmas the way it is meant to be: Celebrate the birth of the world's greatest example "Jesu…

We are back this week with HIMCR with another challenge for you!!! I realize a lot of you are really busy considering it's Christmas but I hope you have time to play along!

So this weeks challenge is to use up all those scraps you have , I had so many Christmas Scraps from making so many cards this year I came up with this!

Come link up with us!!HIMCR

Merry Merry!!!

Hi Everyone!  It is nice to be able to have the time to show you a male card and envelope I made for an order seeing Michael and I were up before the crows this morning...(What time do they wake? lol) If you know me well you know that male cards are my biggest bling , no ribbon , no flowers!!!  lol  I used Winter Frolic Cicut Cartridge for the snowman and  Microbeads on the sentiment, I love this guy , he is so cute

Update on Michael:Michael is still battling hives and we are off to the Doctor today seeing Benadryl is only keeping the hives away for a couple of hours...   He was only out of bed around 2 min's when I took this picture, lol  He is so happy waking up and nothing bothers him...he never complained once in 5 days with these miserable hives... I always learn so much from Michael.   I keep checking Michael to see if he has hives on a regular basis as you would guess ... this time I went as he was playing his 3DS and asked him if he has any hives...He said …

Dropping in to say hi!

Good Morning my awesome friends,

I dropped in today to say hi and to let you all know I miss you all !!! Before I let you know what is happening let me just say in spite of it all we are quite happy and really enjoying the start of the Christmas season.

Michael has been out of school for over a week with a cold, I thought he would be able to go back today but 2 days ago when we got back from the Santa Parade, Michael had hives the size of the palm of your hand all over his face and back... the hives seem to be playing checkers on his little body as they go and come out in a new place. The good thing is it is not effecting his sleep .

Also a dear friend of ours and the community passed away last Wednesday, a very beatuiful soul who loved to sing, would do anything for anybody, he was at every benefit or function to either MC or sing.. he will surely be missed by so many..

I have a few orders still left to complete due to all that is going on but trust me when I say we are really doin…

Free Christmas Digital (Girl sitting under Christmas tree)

Happy Monday!!

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend, As most of you know I celebrated my 39th birthday with my twin sister yesterday and wow! I can't believe I am saying this but I can wait a few days before I go for chocolate again..  hehe , just a few!

We spent the evening together putting up and decorating my tree!!!!! Michael was estastic as you would guess... the magical sound of Michael and Norma singing a Christmas song at the top of their lungs in my very small living room ignited the Christmas spirit within me and would have anyone! That certainly was a memory I will store away safely and bring back out when I need cheering up, lol

Today I have a free digital for you!!!!!!  I got my new tablet and was astonsihed that it had a touch feature on it.. technology blows my mind.

Enjoy, what you want with it ... put it on a card and sell it.. (just don't claim you designed the image).

Christmas Countdown on Canvas!

Hello!! I am super excited to show you a project I did over the weekend. Christmas advent Calenders usually have a hidden chocolate or treat of some kind but I didn't want to confuse Michael. I want him to learn the concept of a countdown, the treats would distract him so I made this Fun Christmas Calender countdown on canvas!!!!  Michael loves it as much as I do. As I was visiting my super blogger friends the other day I got inspired by three of them!!! ( Kristan , Karon and Yvonne) Kristan - cracked paint Karon  - Advent Calender Yvonne- using mixed mediums

Feel the Love Project

Hello!! This is my second post today, view earlier post here Today  I visited Funky Cards,  my heart strings were pulled when I read this written by Madison:
The "I Feel the Love Project" will be making Christmas Cards during the months of November and early December to be given to the children who will be spending the holidays at Children's Hospital Central California.
We believe that delivering hand crafted cards at a major holiday such as Christmas can promote the well being of the mind, body, and spirit of the children staying at Children's Hospital Central California for the Christmas holiday. I hope you will join us in making cards for these deserving kids. You will be go happy you did!
Madison is a God send to people in need and I along with so many of you appreciate her service and dedication , visit Madison to get all the details on how you can contribute to making a child smile on Christmas, it is very touching. Here is the card I made: The snow man was stam…
