Happy Day Everyone!!

Just something to remind us all that Mo's images are great for any craft and any occassion...perfect for a card of course, but also scrap pages, tags and gifts themselves!!
Bottom can't go wrong with Mo's Digital Pencil.

i used Mo's fantastic Carolers image to create a tag for
these hand crocheted gifts:

You can find this image HERE in the Mo's Digitial Pencil Shop.
Be sure to take a good look around...Mo has been adding new images and boy are they always!!

It's time to hop along and see all the wonderful creations by the fabulous Dream Team Girls.  Your next hop is to...the talented Gretha

Now, don't fall over when I say this...hee hee...I have 3 cards to share today!
Yep, 3.
I know, I's hard to believe, but I do!

This is my very first A Day For Daisies cards.
I loved coloring these super fabulous images by their amazing artist, Tammy Thompson.
She is talented, isn't she?!?!?!?
You will definitely see more ADFD images here on my blog, colored by me!
ADFD Image - Hot Co Co
Echo Park Dots & Stripes - Candy shop Collection
White Cardstock
Green candy Dots


My next 2 cards feature images by the amazing, the awesome, the woo hoo talented...Mo Manning.
If you are one of the very very few people out there who haven't had the privilege of coloring a Mo Image, then you must hurry over to her shop, take a look around and then get you some digital images to color and create with.

I used 2 of Mo's new images:

I used paper from Echo Park's Dots & Stripes - Candy Shoppe Collection.
I love LOVE LoVe Echo Park!!

Sad News and a HUGE Thank You

Hello my sweet and wonderful crafty friends!
I struggled with even doing a DT post today as I have sad news to share with you.
In the wee hours of yesterday morning, surrounded by her wonderful husband and loving sister, our beautiful and amazing, Katie went Heaven!
You can read Kevin's post HERE!

Katie was such a light and Inspiration to so many of us in this crafting community.
I believe she brought us closer, taught us to cherish each day and love stronger!
I am in awe of her! Wow, what a woman, what a wife, what a mother, what a friend,
what a talent, what an inspiration and what a blessing!

Katie was in so much pain and awhile I am so happy that she is now pain free and in peace, resting in our Heavenly Father's heart is breaking for Kevin and her sweet boys.
I found my self in tears most of yesterday and I think I cried enough tears to float a boat.
My mom says that I have am very empathetic...that I actually got a double dose when empathy was being distributed.  I feel things strongly.  I love strong and I hurt strongly!
My mind is consumed with what Kevin and the boys and her family are feeling and thinking.
I know this isn't healthy, but I just want them to not hurt so badly!
All I can do for them is pray and I have being doing lots of that.
I will also continue to take any and all donations for Katie...yes, for Katie.  Although, she is in Heaven...she said she was ready, but her concern was for her Boys (which included Kevin)!
When I decided to to the latest bundle, I wanted to do it for her boys. I think I knew in the back of my mind I knew what might be around the corner although I didn't want to admit it.
I really did the bundle with Kevin and Hunter and Will and Nate in mind and heart.
A little last something I we could all do for Katie...Help look out for HER BOYS!

You know we have the We Love you Mommy Image:

And the Bundle featuring images from The Wax fruit Co., A Day for Daisies, 
Saturated Canary and By Lori Designs:


I'd like to thank you ALL from the bottom of my heart for all your 
prayers and donations for Katie and her family!
I know with out a doubt that The Renz family are very thankful for all our support and love!
Thank you!

♥ LORi
