Diamonds are Forever

The other day while I was at work my neighbors house got broken into and they stole cash, and my neighbors diamond rings and some other misc. jewelry.  She is so sad.  I thought that I would give her this card.  It breaks my heart that someone would do that and she had been telling us the story of how they took the rings that her husband have her when they were dating (16 yrs old) and they are retired now...Wow! they have been together a long time.  Also that they took her husbands father's war metals.  Totally wrong.  It is so terrible that someone would violate their home and take something that wasn't theirs.  The Police have been there twice now gathering evidence.  I hope they catch the thieves and punish them greatly.

The best Medicine is YOU!

Definitely, Friendship is the best medicine.  I have a nurse that I work with that always comes in to pretty much set up camp when she comes in.  Coffee in hand, papers, book bag, and when she takes all her GARB out of her bag; coffee cup full of pens, pencils, highlighters, scissors....It is so funny.  I have to chuckle...I said to her last night.  "I am waiting for you to take out a picture of your family and set that up next to all of your stuff"  We had a great laugh.  Anyways, I got the idea of this little baby in a picture frame and she can put it next to her while she works.  This is the card that I made to go with the frame.  I hope you like....

I Am So Sorry About Your Girls!

Well about 3 months ago we got baby chicken's because it was almost 2 years to the day that we had our coop invaded by a fishercat and it slaughtered all of our chickens....left them for dead and our beloved rooster Oscar mamed.  My heartbroken husband had to put down his Oscar.  Well make a long story short.  We had a new brood of chickens and they were out in the coop about a month and you guessed it.  Another dam fishercat got in and destroyed our nuggets.  All 20 of our new girls gone.  Again the anguish.  My poor hubs had to go out there again and gather up all his hard work raising his baby girls and bury them.  I feel so bad for him.  I decided to make this card for him.  On the inside is the little farmer boy. with a sincere message to him.  (sorry, girls that is private so I didn't take a pcx of the inside before I took the pcx)  Anyways, here is the deets to this card too.

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

So Sad today!

I am so upset that I cannot get onto my old Ponsettcreekdesign blog.  All my friends are on there and now they don't really know that this is my new blog.  I know that it is starting out fresh but my history is on the other blog.  I miss that.  I guess that I will just have to work a little harder to get a little more recognition.  right! 
Off to drawing board!

Monochromatic Mum!

I have an up coming swap to do.  Monochromatic and the theme is get well or thinking of you.  Well of course when it is a sympathy card I am thinking of you so I decided to go with this.  I have to catch up with playing with all my new stamps that I got from Paper Smooches.  Next I will get back into the swing of the online sketch contests.

The Love Of Art!

I have to figure out how to move the picture around.  I can tell I have been away for some time.  They have changed the format of blogger, and I don't know how to work around it.  I use to like to pick which side I wanted my photo on.  and have the writing on the side.  This format always puts the pcx above the writing and sometimes I like the writing to be on the side of the pcx.  What up with Dat!
