A productive Sunday

I had a goal in mind today, and that was to at least make a card. And - Go me! - I made two. I really do try to stamp whenever I can. But I can't tell you the last time I scrapbooked. That is something that I really need to do. There is just so little time!

Our evacuees are scheduled to go back to Beaumont tomorrow around 10:00 am. They are happy to be going back home, but also worried about what they will find when they get there. They do not know the state of their homes and belongings, but I know they are desperately hoping for the best. Please continue to pray for them as they go home tomorrow. It will be a long and stressful ride for them all.

Anyway, here are the cards for today. :)

This one is with the Cheers to You stamp set and the sweet always paper. Great pinks in this paper! I put some dazzling diamonds on the drinks to give them a little sparkle! We all need fun pink girls night every-now-and-then, right?

Besides wanting to do something fun, I was also in a fall mood today. Really wanted to do something halloween-ish, but this is what I did instead. Maybe I can get something halloween-y during the week. Wouldn't that be nice.

That's all for tonight.


Back at it again...

Thursday night we got 100 more evacuees from hurricane Ike. I went and worked Friday night and then spent most of the day yesterday at the church. We lost electricity because of the storm, both at home and at the church. I've been cleaning and doing laundry, talking with the kids and just been an extra pair of hands. I hate that I won't be able to help much this week because of school. Please keep these people in your prayers; as of right now they do not know when they will be able to go home. I had the chance to worship with some of these people last night, and I received the blessing. Some of these families are in such good spirits, and are so thankful. I for one am happy to serve.

We have some debris in the yard, but luckily nothing major. There were trees and power lines and poles down all over the area. A few trees were down across the road and on houses just a few houses down the road. We were/are lucky.

A few days ago I did manage to stamp a few cards last weekend. This is one of the cutest stamp sets that I got from the new Stampin' Up! catalog! :) The owls are too cute! Mom said that she never would have thought that owls would be popular again.
I used the new Washington Apple pattern paper! Super cute colors with new Riding Hood Red and then of course the great Pumpkin Pie!

Give Away Time

I can not walk from one side of my studio without having to step over something - and it is all boxes of scrapbook stuff that is just sitting here - without purpose or place. So - I've got 3 - count them - 3! give aways today! Post in the comments section by Friday, September 5, and I will draw Saturday morning for 3 lucky people!
Prize #1
This is a collection of 55 8x8 scrapbook papers! Most have 2 sheets of each design, but the others just have 1. Bright Cheery Colors! :)
Prize # 2
This is a collection of 72 6x6 scrapbook papers and cardstock. I had joined one of those monthly kit things, and never used a drop. Nice. Various patterns and styles - good companies: Chatterbox, SEI, Creative Imaginations, and Reminisce - just to name a few.

Prize #3
A collection of unmounted, red-rubber stamps. These are from Purple Onion Designs, again from the monthly kit I was in. There is a complete Alphabet, a set of numbers, card sentiments, the words bliss, joy, happy, thanks, XOXO and a to:/from: stamp. Sorry I couldn't photograph these well. You will need to either mount these yourself, or use with an acrylic block.
Remember - post a comment by Friday, September 5 to get in on the fun! Look for more give-aways in the future!
