Dinky Box

This month we also made a Dinky Box. Inspiration for this box is from Sam Donald - Pootles ( I saw this box and knew I would have to make this in a class. It is so cute!
It uses a full sheet of the DSP Paper Stack. How easy is that? And, I love the look of sponging all the edges, just the right touch. Four Hershey Nuggets fit perfectly.

Blooming with Kindness

Today's card is for Susan! When I saw this Teapot Tuesday challenge (from Splitcoaststampers), I knew I had to participate. This beautiful lady was recently diagnosed with chronic myelogenous leukemia and diabetes. Wow! It has brought her life to a halt, for the time being. I knew I wanted to send this total stranger some words of encouragement and let her know I was praying for her! This really touched my heart because my Dad has leukemia and is the primary caregiver to my Mother, whom has Alzheimer's disease. I love that my cards can reach out and bring a smile to someone in need. Happy Stamping!
