Thinking of You, Robin
I just returned Sunday from a fabulous vacation. David and I were fortunate to be able to spend a week at Surfside Beach with Riley, Brian, and Sydney. We had a great time and Sydney was just a doll. Last Saturday we had to depart from the beach ( insert sad face). David and I drove to Raleigh to visit with Laura and David and Robin and Ken. It was so great to see them all. Robin was so kind to share some of her stamp sets with me, so Laura and I got in some stamp time on Saturday evening. I wish Robin had felt well enough to stamp with us. She continues to battle Lyme disease. Please pray for her and Ken and Laura and David as they journey with her through this ordeal.
On a brighter note, I thought I would share with you the cards I made using Robin's stamps. I chose to use the Kind and Cozy set and the Wheely Sweet Friend set. I do not have either one of these sets, so it was fun to get to try them out. The first card that I made uses the Kind and Cozy set. Laura had the Gingham Garden dsp that matches this set. She doesn't really like this paper, but I kinda do. She was not upset at all about me using it on this card!
The second card I made uses the Wheely Sweet Friend set and I have to admit that it is my favorite of the two. I used the Comfort Café dsp on this one. I also used the pansy punch. All three are items I do not have (stamp set, dsp, and punch) so it was fun to play with them.
Laura and I had a fun night stamping and the guys watched football and the Atlanta race. Something for everyone! I wish we could visit more often. I so miss our stamping weekends. Maybe soon we will be able to work out a weekend to get together and stamp. If you like these cards and want to purchase either or both of them, they sell for $3.00 each. They are both blank inside so there is plenty of room to write a personal message.
Again, please pray for Robin's healing. We love you, Robin.
I'll be back tomorrow with some vacation pictures to share.
