Scrappy Moms Stamps Terrific Tuesday Challenge!

Howdy Ho!

I hope you're enjoying your week so far...mine is so busy, but that's what make life fun!  Welcome to the Terrific Tuesday Challenge with Scrappy Moms Stamps, this week we are using Paisley cartridge.  Well guess what, that's a cartridge I don't have!  I can hardly believe it myself!  So I decided to use Nate's ABC's because it had a similar pair of rain boots.  That's what's awesome about their challenge, if you don't have a cartridge they're using just pick a similar cut from another cartridge!  Now on to my card...

Nate's ABC's Cricut Cartridge
rain boots scene cut at 3.90 x 3.12
I cut the umbrella off and the scene twice and did some paper piecing
Lacy Labes Cricut Cartridge

top layer circle cut 5.39 x 5.19
Crystal Effects for the puddle

Update on Juliana


Happy Friday!  I just want to give you an update on Juliana.  First of all she was so happy and thankful to all of you that sent cards and gifts!  She was really touched that people she didn't know sent her well wishes!  Anyway as you can see she is losing her hair due to her treatment.  And how cute is she with her funny glasses and a big smile! 
So now the good news...she seems to be responding to her treatment!  So they have decided to postpone any surgery including amputation of her leg.  Isn't that fantastic!  Keep Juliana and her family in your prayers.  If you would like to send her cards, you can send them in care of me:
Juliana c/o Liz Munoz,
4851 Lone Tree Way, Suite B
Antioch, CA 94531

Enjoy your day!
