Link to Patrick's Caring Bridge Site

Ok, let's try this link to Patrick's Caring Bridge Site

Thank you to all who have already requested his address. I really know he and his family will appreciate it. My e-mail address is

Thanks again!

Can you help make a very ill four year old smile?

Hi everyone! I am hoping you all can help me. A friend of mine has a four year old son who was just diagnosed with stage four cancer. I keep trying to link his caring bridge site but it won't let me. If you go to the caring bridge site and put in patrickcarr without spaces you can see his site. He has a tumor in his adrenal gland that has spread into his bones. He starts chemotherapy tomorrow. He really could use a card if anyone has time. His name is Patrick and he loves ice hockey. He was supposed to start kindergarten next week, but now he won't be. He'll be getting chemo treatments instead. I know he would love to get some happy mail. I would really appreciate it, and I know he and his parents would too. Since he will be going back and forth from the hospital and home, cards probably should be sent to their home. If you are able to send him a card, please send me an e-mail and I will forward his address to you.

If you can't send a card, please just pray, pray, pray for him! Thanks!

Where have I been?

Greetings to anyone who is still visiting my blog! It has been so long since I posted anything. It has just been busy with birthdays, weddings, families, football (youth football is ridiculous by the way), and all the craziness of school beginning. I plan on posting pictures of the cards I have made and the stools I have been working on. I just haven't had it in me lately. Have you ever had a month like that? I will be posting again soon! I hope everyone is well!

My wonderful friend, Chris, sent me some Tilda images. I have been so swamped with swaps that I haven't been able to use them. I colored a bunch of them on vacation and put this card together last night. I used almost navy by SU, and the rest of this card is actually from my scrap box. The primas are from by bag of them and there are stickles in the centers of the flowers. I colored her with Kooh-i-noor pencils and OMS. I think it is missing something, but she is dang cute!

Chris is offering blog candy in honor of reaching 10,000 visits! She is an awesome stamper! Check out all the great things she creates.
