Here is a card I made using the flower soft.  I had this image stamped and ready to go but I just hadn't finished it.  My finished project.  I am trying to get out of my comfort zone because I used multiple paper.

Sew Simple

I decided I was going to tackle the Tri Shutter card found on SCS.  Now the first time I did this it came out perfectly but all the other times I tried I couldn't get the folds right and I followed the directions. (I promise!!) I wonder if this is a one hit wonder.

Two Ladies

I just purchased the graphic 45 - fashionista collection paper and I had to use this paper.  I had a old stamp from Frantic Stamper and it was perfect.  I used the Sketch Challenge from SCS 228.

For the lady in purple I used my color wheel and did the opposite from the yellow.  Interesting but I think it is growing on me.

Here is the lady in red.

I used my copic markers to color the ladies.

It's Stroke Awareness Month

Since I have two strokes , I think everyone should now how to spot a stroke because I had a bad headache and my bp is normal.  I wish I had this information.   This is from my Stroke Newsletter.


Is a simple way to check if someone is having a stroke.

Give Me 5!

  • Are they able to stand straight and tall? Or do they slump to one side?

  • Do they appear to have lost strength on one side of their body?

  • Are they leaning to one side when they try to walk?

  • Are they veering off to one side?

  • Are they dragging the foot on the side they are leaning toward? Can they tell you whether they can feel the side that they are leaning toward?

  • Are they having problems speaking?

  • Are they having problems "getting their words out?"

  • Do they sound like they have something in their mouth when they speak?

  • Are they saying the appropriate words (do their words make sense) when they speak?

  • Does one side of their mouth droop down?

  • Ask the person to raise both their arms up together. Does one arm begin to fall down?

  • Ask the person to squeeze your fingers with each hand; is one hand weaker than the other?

  • If you ask the person to try to hold something like a pen, can they do it without any difficulty?

  • Can the person feel you touch them on their arm? Lightly touch them on the skin of both arms, and ask them if the feeling is the same on each.

  • Ask the person about their vision. Do they normally wear glasses or contact lenses, or do they normally not use either of these? Ask the person to try to describe any changes in their vision.

  • Is their vision clear?

  • Is it blurry?

  • Can they see everything in their field of vision? Does the person see everything or just part of the visual field?

  • Does the person see double?

  • Do they have a headache? On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the worst, ask them to rate their headache.

  • Do they normally have headaches? If so, is this headache any different from their usual headache?

  • Does this feel like the worst headache of their life?

  • Does light bother or hurt their eyes?

  • Does a sound or loud noise make the headache worse?

Don't wait. Call 9-1-1!

If you see even just one of these symptoms, even if it goes away, do not wait,  call 9-1-1 immediately, this person may be having a stroke.

Happy Scrapbooking Day!!!
