My next project was also a gift for the engaged couple! I used the bride and groom and the sentiment from the set Cherished Moments. I stamped the images on vellum, embossed it in white, added it to a tall vase, put in a fake candle and BOOM. Pretty! Can you tell "wedding" is on my mind, like only....a BILLION times a day?! :)
I trust you are being blessed by someone you love today, whether it be a sweetheart, a child, a sibling, a family member, a friend or the Lord Himself!
Don't forget to comment on this post as well as my earlier posts from the entire week! Your name will be entered into the mix and may be one of two chosen to win 25 Random Unity stamps! You are LOVED!

A second project for today was a card for a friend whom I have known for over 30 years! We lived in the same dorm in college and although we live 5 hours apart, we have stayed in touch for all these years! We went to a show recently to see and meet a movie star whose movies we had obsessed over in college (can you say Lloyd Dobler??). This snapshot of us was taken at the event! We had such a great time and I wanted her to remember it, so I made this shaker card! She told me it now sits on her desk at work! Mission accomplished!
The background stamp is in the set Faith Sees Beauty (8/18 KOTM) and the sentiment is from Blessed Fall (9/18 KOTM). The photo frame is from another Unity set, Inta-Live, Love, Dream and I used Unity's Aurora sequins for the shaker...they are sooooo beautiful!
Be blessed and willing to challenge yourself today! Try a new papercraft technique or yummy recipe! You are AMAZING!
Don't forget to make a comment on my posts all week to win some UNITY booty! See you tomorrow!!

Hello there and welcome to my Day One of my week for Growing in Unity! I'm excited that you are here! My project for my first post is a set I made for my Aunt's birthday! She is a very special woman in my life....she helped raise my brother and sisters and me with my grandmother early on in my life! I honor her for sacrificing so much for us at only 19 years of age, working and supporting all of us! She will forever be one of my favorite people...and I wanted her to know it! The honey was locally grown and included in this sweet set is a spoon I bought from a girl raising $$ for a mission trip to Haiti!
Ready to win some UNITY Stamps? GREAT! Be sure to comment on each post this week and I will choose TWO of you to win a Unity Grab bag! I'd love some encouragement! For great inspiration, also check out the Unity blog, FB pages and Growing in Unity page! Blessings!

I received a card from my sister Kelly today! It was so sweet I wanted to share it! I invited her to a Stamp camp that I helped organize several years ago and got her hooked on card making! She continues to develop her stash for paper crafting with my help, haha! She also dabbles in cupcake and cookie decor, which she does as part of a business, so I make out every time! :) We're such crafty kids! :)
Here's the card!
Where have I been and what has life sent my way these years? I've been LIVING and JOYFULLY so! As I'm guessing you have! :) My family is doing well, my husband retires in June and WE HAVE A WEDDING coming up! God has been continuously faithful and we continue to fall on his amazing grace!
So why am I back now? Weeellllll.....good question! Let me explain! Since my last post, of course, I have continued stamping and card making and all that goes with it. My favorite stamp companies remain my favorites, including Stampin Up, Gina K Designs and Unity stamps (and a new favorite, Kindred Stamps!). My frog faithfuls know how I have always loved techniques and tools and that tradition continues as well with some cool new inks from Versamark, Tim Holtz and Gina K. Although I haven't been blogging like I used to, I do spend time on some crafting FB pages, including one for Unity Stamps. One of their pages features the crafters themselves, for a week, including their creations! I am blessed to say, I am going to be one of those crafters!
The Unity Stamp Company calls this feature GROWING IN UNITY for which they have a blog. If you follow the week-long posts, and comment on them, you will be entered to win a grab bag of 25 Unity stamps! My week will start February 11th and although the posts will be featured on their pages and blog, I wanted to 'resurrect' my posts here as well! Win-Win! :) So if you've been here all along waiting for me, HERE I AM! Can't wait to see how God uses me and this blog, even as we share in our favorite hobby! Bless you all!

Once again I am checking in with a project I wanted to post. Many of you know that Cornish Heritage Farms stamps has reopened under new owners since Liz and Richard moved farther west and the new owners are continuing the quality stamping image tradition, classy-style. CHF have a challenge going on and I decided to enter it with my Christmas cracker boxes! :) I created them for a Christmas Stamp Camp I am doing with my 'stamping buddies'. They are 3 of 6 different styles, and they will be the centerpieces that the 'campers' can take home with them at the end of the day! CHF images have always been one of my go-to's and these projects were no different! Here they are! The images are from the Vintage Winter Signage and Mary and Jesus stamp sets.

It is a week of blessings and thankgiving to a mighty God who loves and blesses His children daily! I have been doubly blessed by happenings of late, including the return of Cornish Heritage Farms Rubber stamps! Yay! Those who know me and my crafting habits know that CHF images are my favorite...I think I have more of them than any other. When Liz and Richard opened a different business, CHF closed its doors...and "dyed-in-the-wool-there-from-the-beginning" groupies like me were super sad! But the latest news? CHF Stamps has a new owner! Tanya, has reopened the website this week, at www.cornishheritagefarms.com! At this time, the CHF images are all digital, but she has grand plans to include rubber images in the new year, including THOMAS KINKADE images! Exciting! Not only am I happy about THAT development, but this week, CHF held a blog hop for commenting and I AM A WINNER :) YAY! I won a $10 gift certificate from Dawn Lusk's blog! Wow! Is God good or WHAT?! :)
In honor of their grand reopening (and winning!), I am posting a card that I made using CHF images for a swap I was involved in this summer. The swap theme was FALL, SCHOOL and EMBOSSING. Here it is! Forgive the slight blurriness of the photo...it was taken by my cell phone and looked fine in a 2x2 image, LOL :)
May God bless you and your family richly on this week of Thanksgiving and always. You are loved!

I'm among the living! Really! If you're still out there in blogland, Hello! In spite of all my best intention several times this year, l haven't been in the zone when it comes to blogging my crafts or my life...I blame it a little on the "microwave" mentality of Facebook, where it only takes a second to connect with others and poof! You are done! but FB doesn't give me quite the same connection as blogging and connecting with those who love crafting with stamps, so my heart remains here, albeit dormant! So...THANK YOU CHERYL, one of my SBS29 sistahs, who has blog candy up on her blog which requires posting on my blog! If you are interested in GREAT candy, check out her blog here:
I am on summer vacation now, although my plate is FULL of things to do and places to be, l do plan to blog as much as I'm able...it will inspire me to stamp more and visit more with all of your blogs too! Heck, I may even post my posts to my Facebook page. Why not?!
Love to you all and be blessed this weekend!

Sadly, I have learned that one of my first and favorite stamp companies OF ALL TIME is shutting it's doors (at least for the Pomeroy family, the business is for sale). Cornish Heritage Farms has continually blessed me as a company and as a family! The Pomeroys have shared their lives with those who followed their farm and family blog. We have been through their adventures raising an ever growing family on a Montana Farm. We have voted for names for the newborn animals, guessed at how many goose/chicken/duck eggs would hatch successfully, and shared the joys and heartaches of raising teenagers and babies! Their company has shown EXCELLENCE in their images, their customer service and, goodness sakes, their faithful and FAST shipping!! But alas, they are moving their farm and decided that the stamping chapter of their lives is done.....AND WE ARE SO SAD
They ROCK! Congratulations CHF! We will miss you!

Happy April Fool's day! The sun is finally matching the warmth here and it's supposed to get to the 80's by tomorrow!!! No foolin'! Today also marks my grandmother Arietta Lucinda's birthday. She went to be with Jesus many years ago on April 16, which happens to be my birthday. That was hard at first, but not anymore....because we were always "birthday buddies" and that connection between the two of us has always been a joy and comfort to me! So since she always wanted me to be a writer, I always write about her on her birthday! If you follow my blog you'll remember the stories, so today I will just suffice it to say, Happy birthday Gram! You ride in the pocket of my heart! (an inside joke...she will get it! LOL!)

I actually made these cards a while back for my friend Erin's birthday...I also want to thank my girlfriend Roxy, who loaned me this stamp!! I adore it and she let me borrow it for, like, a million years! I will give it back, Rox....really soon!!! :)
