I made this little note card holder for my sister. Last year she went for her yearly mammogram and they found a lump. We are so thankful that it wasn't cancer. She did have to have surgery. I asked her the other day if she never found it and never had it removed, could it have turned into cancer. She said she really wasn't sure. I'm so glad that she went in and had the test!!! I want to send this to her to remind her that she was so courageous, during those days of waiting.

If you would like to make a donation to the cause, you can go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure or the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.

Now it's time for you to go to Colleen's Blog.

Learning the Gypsy

Hello my scrappy friends,

For the last 24 hours, I have been learning how to use my new toy, the Gypsy. Unfortunately things expensive items don't come with instructions. I found this wonderful lady on YouTube (channel do4x4) and was able to watch 8 videos. She was awesome!! She explained everything! So tomorrow I will be designing a monkey card and post it on here on Friday.

Stay tuned,Pamela

Daddy's Little Princess Blog Hop

Welcome to Daddy's Little Princess today celebrating dad's everywhere. Almost every little girl has wrapped daddy around their little finger and is Daddy's Little Princess! Their first love is their dad and who they are going to marry. Today, we are giving homage to those special dad and daughter moments. I'm sure you all have your own stories of you and your dad and would love for you to share them with us as we recall our special moments whether it be as a daughter or watching your granddaughter wrapping their finger around their dad ....

Here's my story,

It took me a while to decide on what I was going to do for this hop. I decided to flip through my stamp book for ideas. I was looking for a crown, when I came across this stamp. I had forgotten why I purchased it in the first place. When I was a little girl, my father would play his guitar, for us. We would all sit on the floor in front of him, staring up and listening. He would give us all a chance to choose a song. I chose "You are My Sunshine", every time. So I think this stamp is fitting, for this blog hop.

Unity Stamp  - My Sunshine
All other items were from Stampin' Up
Now, you've heard my story let me send you to the next chapter at Miriam's Blog

Thanks for hopping with me!!!

My Dad's The Greatest Blog Hop


Welcome to My Dad's the Greatest Blog Hop. Today we are honoring our Dads, Grand Fathers, Uncles, and Big Brothers... Who ever made a significant, loving mark in your life? Do you remember your father being so big in your eyes, that he could protect you from anything? He was the one who would barbecue or mow the grass. He would go off to work every day and come home tired and still make time to laugh and play. He didn't mind that every Father's Day, he got a tie or slippers. He was our protector!!

Today we have some wonderful, talented women who would like to show that their Dad is the Greatest!! In case you get lost the hop starts at Pamela ~

The top picture is of him playing music with spoons. Oh, how I love to hear him play Cajun music! There isn't anything he can't do! His best talent is cooking!! And the bottom on is one with his 4 kids (I'm the youngest in the pic). Missing in this picture is my 2 younger brothers. And of course as you can see, he loves LSU!! I have to say, My dad IS the greatest!!
