Featured Stamper Challenge

For today's Featured Stamper Challenge over on SCS, the honored guest is "BevR". What an awesome gallery this lady has. I heard it described as "fairy-tale" and I guess I would have to agree with that statement. Check it out ... if you like layers, bright colors and cute images ... you'll love BevR's gallery!!

THIS is Bev's card I chose to case. I changed up the theme, colors and image ... but kept her layout. The background papers are pieces from older SU holiday papers I had in my scraps drawer. The main image is Whiff of Joy, the teacup is from Close to my Heart and the background "let's talk" image & sentiment are from the SU Like It A Latte set.

If I'm going to do anymore stamping ... I'd better get on it! The SUPERBOWL begins in just a few hours and there will be NO stamping during the game (unless my team Pittsburgh Steelers start playing dumb ... then I'll probably hide in my craftroom). Either way ... have a great day everyone and thanks so much for stopping by!!

DH Update: Tomorrow morning is the PetCT scan which will determine the next steps to be taken on this cancer journey. As I posted before, if they find he's in remission at the moment ... they will move very quickly to begin the harvesting/stem cell transplant process ... if he is not, then they'll order another round of ICE chemo. I will keep you posted on our findings and ask that you continue to keep Mark in your prayers. This has been a tough week for him and I know he's really getting tired of feeling this way. Thanks so much for all your thoughts & prayers ... I don't know what we'd do without you!!
