~Thank You & BLOG HOP!!~

Good morning my friends, and I do mean friends,

Welcome to the monthly Samantha Walker Blog Hop!
You should be arriving from the amazing Karen
(I love her! Just as sweet in person!)

Before I begin I wanted to take just a second to thank everyone who
emailed, called, and stopped by yesterday. The outpouring of concern
was absolutely comforting and assuring that I will never be alone
and I should not feel a burden to anyone whether I am in a wheelchair or not.

I deeply am touched by the concern and messages, once again I am amazed
by the craft community and my friends, so thank you.

Ok on to fun crafty stuff....
Samantha Walker is giving away a bunch of stamp goodies this go round!
I am so very lucky because this month we are paired with the
UNITY stamp company, which means yes....I stamped!!!
*little party in my head* haha
I made this card using the BRAND NEW KOKESHI line
I LOVE IT!
The stamp is of course a BEAUTIFUL high quality UNITY stamp!
Samantha designed it with Unity, it is called Live, Laugh, Love
Just what I needed this week *wink*
Here I made a teeny tiny fan, folding it old school, and gluing it down
with my Glue Arts EXTREME glue, then I hand cut the little dolls out,
and glued them down.
I am going to send this to a friend who was sweet enough to call and check
on me yesterday. I think it will be perfect! :)

Ok on to the next blog
Just click on her name...

Ok I am off to play with my boys today...
they had a HUGE GAME last night and WON!!!!!!
My boys played with respect and dignity, they did not taunt or
chatter and tease like the other teams PARENTS did, they just
played their hearts out and WON!
It was a beautiful night, I went home and cried...sappy mom LOL
Have a beautiful day....enjoy your week. ♡♡♡♡♡

Love the little china girls with the background paper. So cute.

Good job on the win. Yes, so parents are way to "into" the game and forget how to be good sports. So glad your boys won. Enjoy the victory.

Love the card and little fan! You are so talented! While I've only been following your blog for a bit I can tell you why I keep coming back...You! You are authentic in your creative realm and in your emotional space as well. That comes across through this cyber world and as far as I can tell, you have much to give others for that is why we're here tuning in every day. I had to realize myself I can't live my life focusing on my negatives (I struggle with depression) and how that would burden my loved ones. I would have kept myself from living long ago. We all have our ups and downs and you're entitled to yours...just come back and keep us filled in when you're on the upswing. We'll be here, ready and waiting. All my love, Silvia

I really enjoy how you used the paper line.

Dawnll said...

So glad you received so many responses to show you how special you truly are.
As always you share such fun projects- and I love unity products so much.
Don't ever be embarrassed about being emotional -What else would our children have to tease us about? My adult children have a ball with me about it.
blessings to you, Dawn ll
