Hi everyone. I hope you all had a great day...I wanted to share a little something with you tonight. I had a very bad day at work today.... I let someone make me feel very bad and it really bothered me all day and even after I came home from work. I got home said Hi to my family, and got into my comfy clothes. I still was very upset...That means that I am not talking to anyone and just want to be left alone...I am usually a gabby person. So long story short, I was sitting on the couch feeling miserable when the doorbell rang.. When I went to the door a friend of mine was standing there with this wonderful basket of stamps and other toys for me...Now the amazing part of my little story, is NOT how the person made me feel bad, NOT how I let that affect me or my family, but how this person at my door for just a quick moment changed my whole weekend..What you have to understand is that she is going in for some very serious surgery Monday, and she was running errands with her kids, and thought of me.... She did not know that I had a rotten day, she just wanted to bring a gift because she is my friend and she likes my wish that when mean people hurt us that they would just fade away just as quick and that when truly awesome people come into our lives that we would remember them forever.....I am sorry to go on, but I wanted you to know my friend Tracy..Think of her on Monday and say a prayer for this truly beautiful woman that would not hurt anyone...Thank you for giving me back my weekend with my family Tracy, you are just a sweetheart.... Lisa G


Thank you Amy for my very first blog award..You are just so sweet and very talented!!

Good morning all, I hope your middle of the week was a good one. Mine was filled with work, cars, and Halloween costumes.. none of those were what I really wanted to be doing..However the car and costumes(thanks to the help of both of my parents) are fixed and ready to go....Thank God for parents no matter how old you are. Today I wanted to show you the card that I make for my Mom. Remember that she broke her foot a couple of weeks ago. Well I finally was able to get her card done and taken to her. I made it simple, but I thought that it looked cuter that way. If you know my Mom you know that she loves sports! We are talking baseball, football all the time! So because of that I decided that she needed a card with quarterback Ian on it. I made a broken goal post and used my computer to type up what I wanted to say. I really like how it turned out, and so did she..Here is what I used: CS-creamy caramel, yoyo yellow-SU Core'dinations chocolate and green Copics- E15, E17, E25, E27, W8, 110, G07, B26, B29, C1, C3, E50....Have a great day everyone, Lisa G

Hi Everyone. I was going to wait until tomorrow to post this card, but I just could not wait. I had a great afternoon yesterday. I half listen to, half watched the movie Twilight on my computer while I colored and designed a couple of cards. I got soooo much done. This card is for AmyR's Friday sketch. (amyrs76).. I first have to say the when I stamped this little guy I normally would have just stamped & colored him...However because of Amy's awesome videos (most specifically her one on adding a sidewalk) I decided to see if I could draw in a wave for him to ride...I am soooo happy with how it came out..THANK YOU AMY!! Not only did I post this for the Friday sketch I decided that it would really apply to the Farm Fresh Friday contest at the TGF gallery.. On the inside I made the waves as a pocket so you could either put a gift card or money in it for the Birthday Boy. I hope you like it. Here is the list of products: StampS- Surfer Ian-TGF, Hey Dude-My guy Ian-ATS. CS: PTI-spring rain, SU-brilliant blue. Cuttlebug embossing folder-D'vine swirl. Copics-Skin-E21,E50 Hair-E33,E35,E37 Shorts-Y17,YR07 Surf Board-B04,B06,YR04,YR07 Wave-B21,B24,O Have a great day, Lisa G
