Inktegrity Images by Joni

I have a lot to share, but will spread it out throughout the week. First of all I want to THANK all of you for the prayers for my dear BIL. He is still holding on & told his oncologist today "They say I'm sick & dying, but I don't feel it" It's the power of God! Keep up the prayers my dear friends.

I want to share these cards I made this weekend using digi images by Joni over at Inktegrity. Check out her blog & see all the cute creations using her images. I am making a set of thank you baby cards for my niece with this sweet baby boy image, I'll post the rest at a later time. I also love this cute ladybug image.

This All Star image is darling. I put some stickles on the stars to give it some bling!
I went to my first Glama Gurl meeting today, had Lot's of fun. Hope you all had a great & Fun weekend. Come back to see the awesome raks I have gotten over the past week from such sweet & thoughtful ladies.
God Bless you all...Hugs~ Denise

Long Post.....

As some of you know from a previous post, my Brother in law had surgery for a brain tumor a few weeks ago, he did well & went home in 5 days, but the results of the tumor was a Glioblastoma, a very aggressive type of cancer, he was suppose to start Chemo & radiation today, but a week ago he started having headaches & was flown to Baylor/Dallas (that's where surgery was) and the small piece of the tumor that they could not get out has grown 3 times in size in the 3 weeks! He has a lot of swelling in his brain & cannot receive therapy. They have flown him to Mount Vernon (Texas) and is now in Hospice. It is 20 minutes from their home in Scroggins. We are devastated & cry daily, but also pray!! I have made arrangements for my husband to fly back home to give his sister some support, and hopefully Paul will still be able to recognize him in 2 weeks. I talked to him today & he seemed in good spirits & even told me " I have to get better so I can come to Hawaii & see you folks again" talk about breaking my heart....
I made this card to send to my sis in law, to let her know we are there for her, and to send her some love & hugs. I used a Tilda image I got from Jodi. The next card is also made with a Tilda image that I got from Cami, and the idea of her sitting in the flowers was from Jodi. She showed me this idea this weekend. I used different colors to make it look cheerful. Cut the layer pieces with my nesties, and embossed with Cuttle bug folders, I also used the larger dew drops that I got from Jen at Little C's. Took a side profile pic so that you can see the stickles on her wings.

These next 2 cards are made with Nancy Kubo images.
I have a "play date" in a few weeks & need to have 2 cards for a swap that Cami will put together for us. These were fast & easy to make, I hope the recipient likes them

I told you this was a long post! I ask that you keep my Sister in law & Brother in law in your prayers. I have been crafting a lot to keep my mind off things & relieve stress, but it's been Tough!

Joni just came out with new sports images, hop on over to her blog and check them out! I will be creating with one of her "All Star" images next. The sentiment stamp is from Dandelion Designs.
Beautiful flowers are from Roses on Paper.

A few Thank You cards....

I swear I am ADDH! I have like three projects going on at once. At least I finished some of my thank you cards. Here are 4 of them, I have 2 more to post, and I am also working on goodies for the Glama Gurlz meeting at the end of the month. But right now I have 5 unfinished cards sitting on my desk! At least they are all I the only one like this? I need to start finishing off one project at a time. These cards are Thank You cards that I made for some of my blogging sisters, I have been blessed with new friends through blogland.
I used images that we swapped at the last "play date" we had at my house last month. I used SU paper/card stock, some buttons & bling from WalMart, and the pretty flowers from Roses on Paper. I have a few more to post & also will be sharing a few raks & my card I received from my partner for Teri's monthly OCS.

Student of the Week

Before you see her "Student of the Week" board, I want to share this picture that we couldn't fit onto the poster board, so I made a little frame like so that she can hang it in her room.
Helped my GF make a poster board for her daughter who just started kindergarden. It was for a Student of the Week. We used pink, black & white. We let Katie place the stickers on.

Anniversary Card

I'll be celebrating my wedding anniversary at the end of the month, so I decided to work on a card for my husband early instead of waiting for the last minute! My favorite color way back then was red, so my colors were red & white w/some black. So that is why I made the card in these colors. I used this cute TGF image I  I used all SU card stock, cuttlebug embossing folder, nesties & colored image with copics. Added some pearls to the roses in her hair, and used the pretty crochet flower that I got from Elena.
I am so tired, had a very fun day with the local crafters at Teri's social. Wow, what a bunch of awesome, talented ladies....they are are so sweet & full of the Aloha Spirit.

Beautiful Rak

The past 2 weeks haven't been the greatest, we had 3 deaths happen in 10 days. One was a complete "shock", as the other 2 we knew it was just a matter of time, they were both in Hospice. I have been to 2 funerals in the past 3 days. The other will be in the mainland, so I won't be attending that one. Of course anyone would be feeling sad at this point, especially the one that came as a complete shock to the family. Went to check the mail yesterday and low & behold a great Surprise that sure did put a HUGE smile on my face! A beautiful, all in pink ,RAK from the sweet Camille. It made my day, and helped to lift my spirits up a bit. It was great timing Cami. Thanks so much, I absolutely love it all.
Please always tell your parents, children & other loved ones that you love them every chance you get. Life is so precious & can be so short!! Love you all ~ Denise

Look at all these amazing Beautiful Creations that Cami made! WOW, I will have fun with them all.

Thank you for all the well wishes for my bro-in-law who had surgery, he is doing fine, and even went to church on Sunday!!

Rak & some of the 50 cards!

Look at this Beautiful card I received from Risa, her coloring is just amazing!!Here is the start of the 50 cards I have to make for my neighbor. I used TGF farm stamp "Ukulele" girl because she wanted it to be a Hawaiian theme, and wanted the words "Aloha from Hawaii" which I did on the computer. I was able to use a LOT of my scraps, so that was a plus. I made them all a little different. I will try to finish the rest this weekend.

Hope everyone is having a great week....Happy Stamping my Dear Friends.
