My try at digi images

OK, out of all the digi's I have won & the freebies I have collected I did not have anything for a new home, so I made my own out of a coloring book image... Well the coloring ain't no copic markers but it is all I got!
My beer pockets don't hold that kind of cash for that champagne marker... LOL!
No too shabby though right?
The card is for my hubby's nephew & wife they just purchased their first home as a couple!
I am so excited, it's the first time I am going to meet baby Addie, she is now 5 months...
she is the one I made the name collage for in this post, if you would like to see it click on the link.
Thanks for visiting! xxx, Staci

Grandma's Little Stinker

I have a simple layout to share...
I stamped the swirls behind the photo to make my own "patterned paper", I added some stickles to accent the dots on the swirls, I also added some dots of stickles on the border strip. I stamped the Adore with foam stamps by that I won from Green Goddess Creations and finally added my cute litte skunky tear critter.

Tear critters

Here are two of the tear critters that I made with my $20 voucher to The Beary Scrap. It is so funny that I won, I have been eyeballing those adorable critters that some of the DT makes (check out the DT Blog here), so I took my $20 added a bit of my own money to it and got a few cute critter patterns and even tho I made my own bear pattern I got one of theirs too...
I like the fact that the patterns are acrylic, mine I cut from a cereal box.
(Its not terrible, just like the thought of the acrylic being more durable)
These two are Salem the Cat and Sidney the Skunk... aren't they adorable!!
I don't yet know what I am going to do with them, but they were fun to make.
I will post more as I make them and hopefully I will have a project with them to share soon.
Friday Svg is post below.

Hope this helps y'all!!

Please read & try to help, every little bit counts...

I copied & pasted this from Green Goddess' Blog post....

A post from Summer's Blog...if you can help in any way at all...

"My heart feels heavy for a mother out there that I met 9 years ago. Her name is Joy Payne. I always thought it was funny that her name was an oxymoron. But at this time, she does not feel the joy, only the pain. One of my dear friends (who is best friends with Joy) wrote this:

"Our best friends Tom and Joy Payne just had their 3rd child, Easton, who is now 3 months old. He was born with dwarfism, a mild case of Pierre Robin syndrome (where the lower jaw is too small and the tongue blocks the throat), and a cleft soft palette (which also causes airway obstruction). This baby has a tracheostomy and a feeding tube in his stomach. They feed him every 3 hours around the clock and must suction out the tracheostomy when he spits up—which is almost constantly. You can imagine that with this challenge, they get zero sleep. They are up around the clock managing him. At the time he was born they also had two other children to take care of.

This, of course, turned their lives upside down. They have been working with the state to be approved for 24-hour nursing care. This will not take effect until the middle of November, they are told.

However, to add to the trial that they are facing, when Easton was 11 weeks old, their 3-year old son Jaxon drowned.

They now face the overwhelming costs associated with her hospitalization from the pre-term birth of Easton, his immense medical bills, AND the ambulance, life-flight, hospital and burial costs from Jaxon’s death. …Along with the horrible pain, grief and guilt that comes with losing a child this way…

Their insurance covers no nursing costs. 4 days after the funeral of Jaxon, they woke in the night ready for one of Easton’s feedings as his emergency alarms started sounding. He was not breathing and had no pulse—Tom, his father had to revive him by doing infant chest compressions and CPR into the hole in his throat.

They cannot keep living this way until the red tape clears for their nursing care to kick in. Being this physically exhausted is extremely detrimental to their emotional healing and they are terrified that “another child will die on our watch”.

We’re asking for any donations you can give so that this family can pay for a night nurse for the next month until the state care begins. Prices can range from $3,000-5,000. We’d also like to help them cover all the other medical and funeral bills that are piling up. Please give whatever you can to this amazing family. They have been through so much hardship, and it tears us up to not be able to give them whatever money they need. PLEASE HELP US LIFT THEIR BURDEN SLIGHTLY AND GIVE THEM HOPE. Thank you."

I cannot imagine losing a son, and simultaneously trying to care for a newborn with such health concerns. I just cannot imagine the pain. It is tiresome enough to have a newborn. I am at a loss. So, I decided to throw together a quick kit called "Easton" in hopes of raising some money to help this amazing family. Please say prayers for them. And if you feel that you can donate some money, please feel free to do so using my donate button. I will accept donations until one week from now (Sunday, October 17th). When you donate through PayPal, please leave a note that says "Easton" so that I know that's what it's for. Thank you!"

Here is a picture of sweet Easton:

And here is a picture of Joy and her family. The little boy, Jaxon, is the one who they lost from the drowning:

A Lucky Purchase???? 2nd post today

I got two awesome (used) paper racks retailed for $200 each for $40 bucks each from a woman that contacted me off of Craig's list (I put an add on there for paper racks wanted) When I picked them up from her she said that they will bring me a lot of creativity and fun times,  because she had a wonderful experience and made a lot of wonderful friends (met ber BFF too) owning her scrapbooking store. She closed he store 4 years ago and is just now getting to go thru all the stuff that she had left over from the closing.... Gosh I wish I had extra money, I could have cleaned up (she had a ton of stuff) but I really had no business taking $80 out of my budget as is.  
So the moral of the story is that these racks must have some lucky paper crafting vibe because when I came home from getting them & was looking at my blog list, I won @ the Beary Scrap & this am I won @ Pink Cricut.... LOVIN these paper racks...LOL!

I won... again - Lucky weekend for me

 I won a 1000 follower blog candy @ Pink Cricut...  she gave away 10 different stamps sets from her stamp store to 10 different people for hitting 1000 followers... what a giveaway!!  Yeah and I was one of the 10...YIPPIE!!

World Card Making day...

Here is one of my cards for the big day... I am still working on the other.
This is just a fun Halloween card. I wanted to make a green tear bear witch, I used my own pattern on the bear & Treasure Box Designs for the witch's costume... I apologize, but I forget where the broom & the cat came from.
