I'm home taking care of a sick boy today. I don't know if they picked something up this weekend or what, but Ezekiel and BJ, neither one, have been able to keep anything down. Poor guys! BJ didn't stay home, because he said that he had a lot to get done, at work, this morning. He promised not to get too close to anyone, though. I'm sure they'll appreciate that! Rest assured, they are both being well cared for.
Many of you have, probably, heard about the Angel Tree ministry. It is a national outreach program that helps children of incarcerated parents. As a community, our church, Heartland Community Church (HCC), will bring gifts and the love of God, this Christmas, to 100 children in the name of their parents. In addition, due, in part, to these tough, economic times, there are many people right in our own HCC community who need help this Christmas. Thus, Heartland Hearts was begun. It's a program to help make needy, HCC families' Christmas wishes come true. This year, BJ and I were so excited to get to take part in this second program. Our adopted family wished for an Italian food basket with pasta sauce, bread, salad mix, and red &/or white, paper goods and will be receiving this.
Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger: Double the Fun.
I had so much fun making this card, that I decided to make a similar set, of five, to sell in my Etsy shop. You know, because I've got so much time for that. Wink!
These cards were made just like the Tuesday Trigger inspired card above, but they boast pink, sheer, Hobby Lobby, ribbon purchases and pink buttons, instead of red. All the paper pieces, for this set, came from K&Company's Brenda Walton Peppermint Twist line and are machine stitched together, the same as above, with a white-threaded, zig-zag stitch. This last photo shows the inside, scallop, edge detail perfectly.
Lofty Designs, waiting to be purchased and gifted this Christmas! I'd really be able to celebrate with my first sale! Thanks so much!
