Glam Girls and BLING!!

Greetings friends,

How was your weekend? We have returned from our mini-vacation; one of the best things about visiting Flint Oak is there is NO cell phone reception. WOO HOO!! Yes, it makes me a bit nervous with kids, but I knew they were all in capable, loving hands and could reach us by calling the resort if necessary.

I wanted to enter the card on the right in Taylor's challenge (TECC21 - scroll down, you'll see which one I'm referring to); but we had a softball game the night it was due and I couldn't get it entered in time. :(

There are 3 semi-circles on the right hand side; one zebra; one white and one black. I just love these Glam Girls from All That Scraps; each chick is such fun to work with! As you can see, I paper pieced both their pants - how do you like those funky stripes on the pants? LOL

I used the swiss dot embossing folder on both cards and the same colors throughout. One has a large diamond on her finger, the other a large ruby - they are so stylin'!

Both shirts were colored red, then I added the clear glitter with the Spica Glitter Pen, always fun!

I hope you like them and thanks for visiting! Have a great week!

If you're still with me, a brief update on my dad AND my mother-in-law. My dad begins treatments for the cancer on Wednesday; each Wednesday for 6 weeks. When he had the biopsy on July 3, they actually removed the tumor they had found in late June; so hopefully all the cancer is gone and this treatment will help prevent it from returning. We're very hopeful and God will get us through no matter what the journey is - I could never make it without Him!

My MIL underwent foot surgery Friday, July 18; she's a diabetic and has a wound on the bottom of one of her feet for 2 years now. The surgery didn't go quite as planned so she's confined to a wheelchair and cannot put weight on it for a minimum of two weeks. Thankfully our oldest is there to help out a bit.

So, prayers would be most appreciated!! Again, thanks for stopping by; I love hearing from each and every one of you. Hugs, ~M.

I will definately keep you (and your family) in my prayers sweetie. You are so right...you gotta put yourself in the Lord's hands, he will never leave your side! Mike and I know this well.

I love the card! The pants on this chick are so cute!
