In my cardmaking group there were a few requests for cards.
The first is a little boy in one of the girls hometown has Neuroblastoma Cancer and is in the hospital, he loves getting mail from all over the country and she asked if we would all like to send him cards. I found this image from a Mary Engelbreit calendar and I feel anybody fighting cancer is a superhero so I chose it for his card.

wink of stella --clear glitter pen on the stars
The second card is for the father in law of one of the girls in the group who had the accident a little while back that I shared with you, his wife died in the accident and he is now out of the hospital but is in a nursing home. She said that she thinks he could use cards of encouragement more than sympathy cards and I found this old stamp set that had the perfect sentiment.
I now wish I would have went with brighter color paper, but I am usually drawn to darker colors when doing masculine cards.
My sentiments exactly -- Little birdie stamp set
DCWV -- Tattered time paper
We had to wait over an hour at the DMV for my drivers license renewal and eye test. My hubby stood in the other line to get the stickers for the plates and that didn't take near as long. He ended up taking 3 pictures of me, the first he said there was too much glare with my glasses, then I noticed I was blinking just before he took the picture so I tried to hold my eyes open so I wouldn't blink and he said, oh we are going to have to take that over you have a tensed look on your face and sure enough it looked awful, so I blinked a lot before he went to take the picture and the 3rd try came out good.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop in today,
