From My Heart

Wow what a week it has been!  So much going on and my mind is on overload to say the least.  As I had shared on Monday we started out the week having trouble with our water pressure.  It's been so dry and the farmer near our place has been running his irrigation well so needless to say we are pretty sure that is the cause of our problem.  We had asked him if he could turn it off for 24 hrs so we could really see if that's the problem, but he refused so we are having a plumber come out tomorrow to pull the pump and see how low the water is.  Hopefully we can just put down more pipe and not have to drill a new well.  No money in the budget for either, but having to drill a new well would be worse.  Tuesday I got a call from my dad's doctor wanting to see us right away that morning.  A pathology report came back on his scopes he had and they found cancer in his lower stomach.  This was so not what we were expecting and it has hit us pretty hard.  On the upside they feel that it has been caught early.  He has had no symptoms except for some anemia.  His doctor jumped on that where most would have just given iron pills and we are so thankful for that.  He will be going to the University of Michigan hospital for more testing and treatment.  We are keeping positive and trusting the Lord that he can make a complete recovery from this.  Then yesterday our doggie wasn't feeling well and I had to make a trip to the vet with her.  So yeah kind of mentally exhausting.

Here it is Thursday and I've not gotten much accomplished around home or with my stamping business, but I do have something to share with you.

I used the new awesome Natural Composition Specialty paper on this one.  This paper is like paper bag in color and has a glossy embossed pattern on it.  I took ink and brayered over it and this is what I got.  It really makes the embossing pop.  Here is what I used:
Stamps: From My Heart
Paper: Primrose Petals, Twitterpated DSP, Naturals Ivory, Natural Composition Specialty
Ink: Primrose Petals, Early Espresso
Other: Stampin' sponges, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Labels Collection Framelits, Adhesive backed pearls, Paper Piercing Tool, Stampin' Pierce Mat, Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack, Brayer, Dimensionals

All these items can be ordered from my stampin' store at or by contacting me directly.

Thanks for listening to my ramblings and for stopping by.
