I paper pieced Jane's yummy pie image and added some Hero Arts stamps (sentiment and steam).

Hope everyone's having a great week!

such a cute little ladybug!
Congrats, Eva! Please email me through the link on the side bar with your shipping info and I'll get your goodies out to you.

I also wanted to share a card I made this week for a very special man who's battling cancer.

This dear man has been an amazing example to me of trusting God during the difficult times. He's been experiencing more pain lately and so if you could keep Jack and his family in your prayers I'd appreciate it. Thanks. :)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. It's finally starting to feel like spring here. :)
