Friends

Hope y'all are having a wonderful start to your week this week! I also hope you are all enjoying life and the beautiful autumn season. Where I am, the leaves are starting to change their colours and the air is crisp and cold. Just little things I'm thankful for!

Here's a card using 2 Technique Junkie Newsletter techniques, Painted Puzzle, a bonus technique from the latest CD release and Burnished Background from the October '09 issue. Both are fun techniques to be sure and the possibilities are endless. If you haven't gotten your latest CD release, I encourage you to do so. The bonus techniques on the CD will blow you away!

On my card, the stamp image on the puzzle is from Paperbag Studio. Background is from Stampin' Up! Click photo to enlarge. Enjoy!

Until next time, may mojo live happily in your heart, and may passion bloom in your soul. Be well!
    

TJ September Treasure Hunt!

Are you ready for another Treasure Hunt? If you did not arrive here from Shelly's blog, you will need to go back to the Technique Junkie Blog. That's where the hunt begins. Vada & Judy have some wonderful eye candy waiting for you there!

Here are the cool treasures for this hunt:
- 1 Package of Paperclay for Petroglyphic Technique
- 1 Jar of Smooch Ink
- Micro Pearl Pearl Ex for Jeweled Acetate
- Glitter for PK Glitz Technique

This is a little sneak peek of a technique, Embossed Crayon Resist, from the soon to be released October '09 issue. All stamps are the Time to Stamp line from I Brake for Stamps. The scanner just can't capture the shimmer of this card. But believe me it's pretty cool and a fun technique to be sure!

Cards for Troops

About two months ago, my friend and neighbour, Barbara, told me her husband, David, who is stationed in Afghanistan would be coming home to visit for a couple of weeks in early September. I wanted to do something nice to show how much I appreciate our service men and women. I also knew that I have many friends who would want to do the same. So, I sent out a request for handmade cards for our troops to send with David for when he return to Afghanistan.

Well, David was here and has gone back to his service September 18th. The photo below is of David & my son with shoe boxes loaded with greeting cards. My friend, Linda E., my son, and I delivered the cards to David's house the day before David was to leave. 940 cards total were donated for my little Cards for Troops program. Thank you to all my stamping friends for your generosity above and beyond my imagination! I'm truly grateful. And I know with all my heart that the troops appreciate you as well!

God bless our Troops! God bless America! Pray continually for our fighting men and women and their family!

Until next time, may mojo live happily in your heart, and may passion bloom in your soul. Be well!
