Sweet!

I started stamping maybe 8-9 years ago. Little did I know then how much paper crafting would impact my life. I have made some incredible friends, some of whom I have never met in person. I find it so incredible how God can use something as simple as paper and ink to make a difference. When there are people in need, the community rallies. I love that!

One of the Stampavie DT members, Michelle Oatman, recently had a bad accident and lost an eye. You can read about it on her blog. I am so touched by her attitude. To help out with medical bills Stampavie has a special digi image available that you can download when you make a contribution. One person can do a little but many people together can do a lot. I did my part and finally took a few minutes to color up that cute donkey image.


The card isn't fancy, just a bit of embossing. I wanted the colored image to be center stage and I think it is. I plan to use this card to cheer up a friend. Isn't this hobby we enjoy wonderful?

I hope you will take time this week to use this stamping craft to bless someone in your life.
