Wonderful News!

For those of you who follow my blog you know that I recently experienced a great loss.  If you are new here, the details can be found in my post 2 weeks ago.
Yesterday, as I was putting things away and finding homes for some new purchases and a few gifts from a dear friend,

I found my tea cup stamp!!!!!  I thank all of you for your kind thoughts and and prayers (thank you Judie + St. Anthony), as I mourned the loss of this stamp.  And thought it only fitting that I share my joy on its return!!!!

I was tidying up because my grandson was coming for a few hours and he always has a project in mind for us to do.  Yesterday's project was making signs for him and his family to hold up when they went to the Phila 76ers game last night.  This was followed by making BIG chocolate chip cookies.  (I added a fudge marble cake to the list while the mixer was out and oven was hot.)  And then we googled "paper airplanes"  and made a couple of those.  So no cards yesterday.

Today, I got right to work on a card for Sentimental Sundays Challenge #139- Thank you.  I used the sketch
from CAS(E) this Sketch and will also enter it in their Challenge # 13.
Also entering this in Through the Craftroom Door Challenge Blog - Anything Goes.


  1. Glad you found your tea cup stamp, Debi! (the drum roll is cute). But I LOVE this pretty wreath image, and the way "thanks" is hanging across it. Very pretty!

  2. Those clear stamps have a way of being MIA, don't they? I finally found a Christmas one the other day (although I had given up looking for it - thinking it had fallen in the trash can) it was stuck to the bottom of my flat metal container of watercolor crayons! Who would have thought it could have snuck under there? Love that little wreath image and the embossed background.

  3. Congrats on finding your stamp, I'll bet you breathed a sigh of relief! Your card is gorgeous, I adore this delicate wreath of flowers especially with the subtle texture of the embossed background, it's perfect!
    Thanks so much for sharing at CAS(E) this Sketch this week!

  4. This is just a lovely CAS card! Great design, pretty image, colors, and embossing. Thank you for sharing this with us at TTCRD. Hope to see you again next week! :^)
    Hugs, Penny
    P.S. Glad you found your stamp! ;^)
