Wonderful warm Greeting by Amy R

CHA is over and there are so so many brand new stamps and sentiments and dies available at 

Today I want to show you some more of the wonderful and warm text stamps that are available by AmyR.
I used the Mixed Sentiments and Elegant Greetings that will be available from August 1st in STORE!

The stamp is Ice cream Birgitta and already available in store HERE or
as a Digital image HERE

I colored here with my copic Markers
Papers: Maja Design

And then this card:

It's not easy to make a Condolence card... but with the Elegant Greeting by AmyR it's a warm and tender
process to make a card like this.
I stamped the Text onto cardstock and embossed it with fine silver embossing powder. 
The charm is from my stash and has a cross in it.

Hope you will take a good look at the more than fantastic text stamps. I really appreciate them and they are so wonderful to use for so many occasions on your cards!

With Love

A little update here

Hi girls,
I've been to the hospital for an extra check-up since my temperture was gone up. All is well... the wound is healing and cleaning up old blood in the wound so that gives some temp change. Nothing to worry about.

I still have a lot of pain meds... and that keeps it beareble...
I want to thank all of you for the huge amount of cards that you sent to me!!! Cards for my good recovery, cards with presents for my birthday! My gosh.... I was amazed by it... each and every one is a piece of art itsefl! They are standing on a table close to me and I enjoy them every day!
Thanks a million for this support!

And the card that is here I made (way on time) for my Daughter. She had her birthday last week.
Wanted to share it with you all.

Warm hugs a lots of love to you all.

Simon Webbe - No Worries

This is the right song for me right now... neede to share it with you all....

Being off line for a short while..

Hi Girls,

Well it's finally time... I got the test results and it appears that I have two malignant tumors in my upper leg bone.
Last Tuesday I got the final results and the news that coming monday I will have the surgery.

They will remove both tumors and then I'm not able to use my leg on any way. So will be having a lot of bedtime. After that the rehabilitation will start and I will be coming around more and more.
Of course I hope this will be sooner.. but since I'm not sure... I just keep it on that.

I have some post pre-sheduled here.. so now and then there will be a post here.

Last few weeks I had a lot of support and sweet words from you all. I want to thank you for it. It really was a shoulder to lean on and cry now and then.
But from here on it's back up the hill...

I will the coloring, making cards and see all of your work and most of all chatting with you...
But be assured that I will think of you...
Here is a little card with that same text (in Dutch).

Stamp by Lilly of the Valley
Colored with my copic markers

Sending you lot's of hugs and kisses and we talk soon again.
With love

I used the bottom horizontal line of this square!

I really played with all different kind of inks this time. Oh it was so relaxing and fun!

Then used Orchid Birgitta or the digi version and colored her with Copic markers and H20

Have a great weekend!
with love
