Once again I am checking in with a project I wanted to post. Many of you know that Cornish Heritage Farms stamps has reopened under new owners since Liz and Richard moved farther west and the new owners are continuing the quality stamping image tradition, classy-style. CHF have a challenge going on and I decided to enter it with my Christmas cracker boxes! :) I created them for a Christmas Stamp Camp I am doing with my 'stamping buddies'. They are 3 of 6 different styles, and they will be the centerpieces that the 'campers' can take home with them at the end of the day! CHF images have always been one of my go-to's and these projects were no different! Here they are! The images are from the Vintage Winter Signage and Mary and Jesus stamp sets.

It is a week of blessings and thankgiving to a mighty God who loves and blesses His children daily! I have been doubly blessed by happenings of late, including the return of Cornish Heritage Farms Rubber stamps! Yay! Those who know me and my crafting habits know that CHF images are my favorite...I think I have more of them than any other. When Liz and Richard opened a different business, CHF closed its doors...and "dyed-in-the-wool-there-from-the-beginning" groupies like me were super sad! But the latest news? CHF Stamps has a new owner! Tanya, has reopened the website this week, at www.cornishheritagefarms.com! At this time, the CHF images are all digital, but she has grand plans to include rubber images in the new year, including THOMAS KINKADE images! Exciting! Not only am I happy about THAT development, but this week, CHF held a blog hop for commenting and I AM A WINNER :) YAY! I won a $10 gift certificate from Dawn Lusk's blog! Wow! Is God good or WHAT?! :)
In honor of their grand reopening (and winning!), I am posting a card that I made using CHF images for a swap I was involved in this summer. The swap theme was FALL, SCHOOL and EMBOSSING. Here it is! Forgive the slight blurriness of the photo...it was taken by my cell phone and looked fine in a 2x2 image, LOL :)
May God bless you and your family richly on this week of Thanksgiving and always. You are loved!

I'm among the living! Really! If you're still out there in blogland, Hello! In spite of all my best intention several times this year, l haven't been in the zone when it comes to blogging my crafts or my life...I blame it a little on the "microwave" mentality of Facebook, where it only takes a second to connect with others and poof! You are done! but FB doesn't give me quite the same connection as blogging and connecting with those who love crafting with stamps, so my heart remains here, albeit dormant! So...THANK YOU CHERYL, one of my SBS29 sistahs, who has blog candy up on her blog which requires posting on my blog! If you are interested in GREAT candy, check out her blog here:
I am on summer vacation now, although my plate is FULL of things to do and places to be, l do plan to blog as much as I'm able...it will inspire me to stamp more and visit more with all of your blogs too! Heck, I may even post my posts to my Facebook page. Why not?!
Love to you all and be blessed this weekend!

Sadly, I have learned that one of my first and favorite stamp companies OF ALL TIME is shutting it's doors (at least for the Pomeroy family, the business is for sale). Cornish Heritage Farms has continually blessed me as a company and as a family! The Pomeroys have shared their lives with those who followed their farm and family blog. We have been through their adventures raising an ever growing family on a Montana Farm. We have voted for names for the newborn animals, guessed at how many goose/chicken/duck eggs would hatch successfully, and shared the joys and heartaches of raising teenagers and babies! Their company has shown EXCELLENCE in their images, their customer service and, goodness sakes, their faithful and FAST shipping!! But alas, they are moving their farm and decided that the stamping chapter of their lives is done.....AND WE ARE SO SAD
They ROCK! Congratulations CHF! We will miss you!

Happy April Fool's day! The sun is finally matching the warmth here and it's supposed to get to the 80's by tomorrow!!! No foolin'! Today also marks my grandmother Arietta Lucinda's birthday. She went to be with Jesus many years ago on April 16, which happens to be my birthday. That was hard at first, but not anymore....because we were always "birthday buddies" and that connection between the two of us has always been a joy and comfort to me! So since she always wanted me to be a writer, I always write about her on her birthday! If you follow my blog you'll remember the stories, so today I will just suffice it to say, Happy birthday Gram! You ride in the pocket of my heart! (an inside joke...she will get it! LOL!)

I actually made these cards a while back for my friend Erin's birthday...I also want to thank my girlfriend Roxy, who loaned me this stamp!! I adore it and she let me borrow it for, like, a million years! I will give it back, Rox....really soon!!! :)

Lots of fun and busy things happening all around and it's been nice to be able to be a part of it--it's what LIVING is all about. We've had friends for dinner and family visiting and of course March Madness brackets to fill in (yes, I am a college basketball fiend....GO SYRACUSE!!!) I've made a few swaps and even a challenge card (here below) for our SBS 29 sister challenge! It's a green challenge and my Mellow Moss cardstock just about makes it. I'm posting it before midnight, but not by much!! Just wanted you all to know, I'm thinking of you and thanking my God you are in my life!
I've also been working on going to Kenya this summer for a mission trip and if you'd be willing, I'd appreciate your prayers as I work on raising the $2000-3000 just for the ticket!! It's all in God's hands, but not without sacrifice...I am going through my stamp collection to see what I can live without to help fund my trip....eek, it's harder than I thought, but not as painful!! I'd post again soon....be blessed my friends!! Enjoy my card! Enjoy SPRING!

Now, I'm sure many of you probably think that I would put cholocoate in this package...but you don't know my girl! Since she was little, she always preferred sugary candy over chocolate...she only gets one chocolate bunny in her Easter basket (my idea!) the rest of her candy is things like Skittles, Nerds, Ring Pops, etc....So for this package, I bought a few "movie theater" type boxes of sour Skittles and Lemonheads and covered them in SU Designer Paper.
Also, when she was little, my DD had this way with fluffy animals in the store...You know how the big dept stores have a "deal" at Christmas...buy $50. worth of their stuff and get this big Christmas bear/moose/bunny/etc for only $10.? And how they would have a million of them scattered throughout the store?? Well, Kelsey NEVER missed the opportunity to hug
EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM!!
It took hours to shop every Christmas. So I saw this guy with the saying "Hug me" and I couldn't resist!! Tee hee!! Every college girl needs a teddy in her bed at college, right? Aw c'mon, it'll match that big fluffy duck she took when she went! :) Love our girl!

This simple little sketch is the first challenge for my sisters of the SBS29 Group! I kept it simple 'cause it's our first and we are all very busy women! We are going to have a little prize chosen to a randomly chosen sister who makes a card and posts it on her blog by February 20. There are no color specifications as part of the challenge; I only included color in the sketch to give it contrast! And as you can see with my sample card, taken from my archives, the sketch can be creatively changed--as in changing shapes or orientation :) Just have fun!
Although this challenge is specific to the SBS29 sisters, I'd like to offer a little prize for a randomly chosen NON-SBS29 sister who wants to make a card following the sketch, too. If you would like to enter, comment in this post with a link to your card. How's that for a thrill!
Have a fabulous weekend! If I can, I'm going to post a WishRAK I received that brightened my entire week! Be blessed, my friends!

Also, I want to share this link that I received in an email. It only takes 5 minutes to watch, but it's a small bit of time for a big deal. I believe we are blogging for just such a time as this:
The tree comes down today! :)
