Let's make Danny's wish come true


This is Danny.  Danny has an inoperable brain tumor.  He will be will be 5 yrs. old on July 25th.   Sweet Amy Tsuruta linked this article about Danny yesterday.  All he wants for his birthday are cards with his name on them.


 We can do this!!

Here's my card for Danny.  Felt so good to put ink to paper again!  I used May Arts BRAND NEW Nautical Satin Cutouts (ran them through my Xyron) Papertrey Ink Designer papers and Avery Elle's Knotty stamp set.



There's still time to make this precious little boy's birthday special.  Here's his address and it's also in the article above:

P.O. Box 212
Foxboro, MA 02035

May Arts, Simple Stories, Xyron Blog Hop - Day 5!

It's Day 5 of the May Arts/Simple Stories/Xyron Blog Hop.  If you arrived here from Courtney Lee's blog, you're in the right place.

I chose to work with "the story of US".  I knew it would be perfect for a newly wed couple to journal to each other.   I used 8 May Arts ribbons on the front!  After I cut the designer paper to fit the front/back covers, I ran them through my Xyron 9" Creative Station.  No glue, no tape, no mess and instant adhesion.  Gotta love that!


More Simple Stories and May Arts Ribbon on the inside to keep things interesting. I can't show you all the pages but here are a few.



Perfect back cover!

Happy Independence Day!


It's not about hamburgers and hot dogs...although those are nice.

Read and cherish it...the only country in the world with a Constitution and form of government that has lasted more than 200 years.   We are the government.  It's up to us to keep it for future generations.
