About Cat

Hi everyone. My name is Theresa Momber. Cat asked me to come and let you know why she hasn't been blogging lately. Early last week, Cat was admitted to the hospital after having a mild heart attack. She was tested and a blockage was found in one of her arteries. She also had congestive heart failure (fluid in the lungs) and an additional complication of a hematoma at the cath site from the test that was done.

I spoke with Cat just a little while ago and she is doing pretty well and hoping to come home soon, but the doctors haven't given her a date yet. She is very weak and only today been allowed to sit up for a few moments.

There is a thread over at StampTV that we have been updating with any news on how she is doing. You can find it here. She wanted me to be sure to let her readers know what was going on and that she misses you all so much.

Any prayers or possitive wishes you can send her way will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much!

Have a Sunny Sunday!

Here is a card I made for this past week's CAS challenge at 'show your bling'. That is one thing I do have a hard time with, bling. I need to take lesson's from my friend Lee!

I was inspired by a photo I saw in our local newpaper of these gorgeous sunflowers by a white picket that is what I tried to imply with the white stripes there, lol. My bling is the nail head brad adhesive things from Gina K Designs. I really like how this turned out myself! What's strange, is the cards I like that I do, not many seem to like it, haha! I just walk to a beat of my own drum, LOL!

Thanks for stopping by today and I do hope you have a wonderful, relaxing sunny Sunday!

Inspiration Mosaic Blog Hop!!

Hey all! Welcome to the Blog Hop! We have some awesome creations to share with you tonight with Melanie's newest set Inspiration Mosaic! This set was so popular that it sold out, but now is BACK IN STOCK! It is such a fun and versatile can do CAS cards, or go all out! For my first card, it's CAS card:

I decided to get a jump start on Christmas! This card was really quick and simple...just a bit of coloring and...what? GLITTER?? yep! I used glitter!! LOL! I combined Mel's stamp with Funky Christmas on this card, colored with copics, used my quickie glue pen to add the glitter, popped up the image panels and tied a ribbon, added little corner punches and brads and was done! I can mass produce these really quick so I do believe this will be my Christmas cards for this year!

And I did another card. This actually was my first card I did, but decided it didnt show the blocks of the stamp good enough, lol!:

I combined Mel's stamp this time with Theresa's newest set Timeless Treasures. I didnt get to participate in the blog hop of Theresa's last week, so decided to use it this time too. I was going for a grunge look on this one. I stamped the block stamp and then ran it through the script cuttlebug folder, inked it after running it through. Then did some sponging on it. I stamped extra panels for the images onto red, cut them and glued them down then stamped the images on more panels, cut out those and sponged then popped them on the red area. The heart is covered with crystal can't tell it in the photo though of course, lol. I glued the Tim Holtz key on with crystal effects too. Added some jumbo eyelets that I dabbed some gold fixative on, ran the red craft thread around it and basically was done!

For even more inspiration, be sure to check out Melanie's blog.

Melanie also has several guest designers joining in on the hop tonight:
Jennie Harper, Tina Gilliland, Linda Payne, and Jen Charboneau
