My husband is the BEST!!!

I am so excited, for those of you who don't know John got a new truck on Monday! It's a great big ole Chevy and it really is pretty nice. Anywho my husband decided if he got a new truck I should get something too so he bought me a diamond wrap it is just beautiful. The Lord has definately blessed our family and blessed me with the best husband anyone could ever ask for! So tonight be thankful for your spouse if you have one, because remember not everyone does!

Colors & Cubes.

Another super simple card using the Colors & Cubes pattern out of the Originals book. This is for display for a technique class I will be teaching at the library next week for beginners.

I love my H&M stamps

When I first saw this stamp set I knew I had to have it! My cousin Michelle who lives in Colorado has the nicname Ranga Roo, anyways I have not talked to her in a really long time so I thought I would make her this card. My coloring stinks but on the bright side I just bought some Prismacolor pencils from E-Bay so hopefully I can try out the Gamsol technique this week!
