Money Holder

 Having older sons makes it really difficult at birthdays and holidays.  Giving them a check is so boring.  This year we gave our youngest money towards a new phone he's been wanting.  I'm really happy with the money holder I came up with.  I think it will make him laugh!  I used 5 pieces of chipboard cut to the shape of the image I found on the internet and I put a piece of clear laminating film on top to make it look more real.

I'm Back!

It's been a long couple of months.  My brother was in a horrible motorcycle accident in May and there was much to do...most important of which was praying constantly.  With the Grace of God, the knowledge, skill and compassion of his doctors and nurses, love of family and fiancee and willingness on his part to do the very difficult work of rehab ...he is doing amazingly well.  Finally my creative spirit is back and I've started stamping again!!  I was worried for a while there...I had nothing!
