Friendship Blooms



Oh, how I LOVE Sale-a-Bration time! I finally got my sets yesterday, and of course the RUB-ONS!! How exciting that one of the SAB choices this year is my new favorite addiction. I was also thrilled to see that the stamp sets were die cut and ready to peel and stick baby.

I LOVE this flower set called Friendship blooms. LOVE IT!! How cool that you can get it totally FREE in February!! The stem, the center, and the flowers on the side are all rub-ons... another totally FREE item during SAB. You get four full sheets of rub ons.. and, they are black, white, BROWN and GREEN! How cool is that? COOL BEANS BABY!!

The flower is colored in with my Pure Color Pencils and my Stampin'Write Markers. The main flower is stamped with Basic Brown and the sentiment (included in the set) is stamped in Chocolate Chip and punched out with the Key Tag Punch. I added some dazzling diamonds glitter and SHAZAM baby... we are done!

Here is the recipe:

Stamps: Friendship Blooms
Paper: Berry Bliss, Whisper White, Shimmery White, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Basic Brown, Chocolate Chip.
Other: Stampin Write Markers, Pure Color Pencils, Love and Happiness Rub-Ons, Key Tag Punch, Pretty in Pink Eyelets, Cropadile, White Taffeta Ribbon, Pink Gingham Ribbon, Two-way Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Dimensionals, Janome Sew Mini, Scor-pal.

Sorry about not posting for a couple days. We had a traumatic weekend. My twins were attacked by a dog this weekend. They were walking down the street and a dog came out between two cars and took Baylor to the ground instantly by biting his leg just under the knee. They didn't know what was happening.... they didn't even see the dog until he had already got him. His brother Jayce is terrified of dogs, but he stayed and helped fight the dog off. My hero. The police said if it wasn't for Jayce, it could have been much worse. Baylor had to have seven stitches in the biggest wound. It was horrible. He is fine, just very sore. We were all very shaken up and Averie had a hard time sleeping for a couple nights. Animal control took the dog and hopefully she won't be back. Unfortunately, it was a neighbor's dog and a known biter that had gotten loose. Later this afternoon, he has a follow up with our Doctor. I'm just hoping for no infection. I'm proud of both of them for how they handled the situation...... and me for not passing out. :)

Have a super week everyone! Thanks for stopping by!

How frightening for you all!! I had to tell you that my 11 year old is also JAYCE! I've only seen the name in books, never "known" of anyone else having his very cool name (I think so anyways---even if he gets called everything from Joyce to Jacie)

Bonnie said...

Good grief! I almost threw up just reading this....both of your boys are so VERY brave!! along with their mother......

Alexandra said...

I am so glad to hear your kids are safe. You should be very proud of them for staying together and helping each other. Hoping for a speedy recovery and no more wakeful nights. My daughter had to have stitches when she was almost a year and I remember how hard it was on me as the Mom. It is amazing how fast kids recover from them. Kenna

I'm troubled by your post today (1/22) stating that the lady still has her dog. Typically when a dog attacks unprovoked like that, it is taken away and at the very least evaluated for aggressiveness. Then, they are euthanized if the are aggressive. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE animals and have several of my own (2 dogs too). BUT, you can't EVER get rid of a scar and children are usually eye-level with dogs so their faces are almost always what's bit (thank goodness not in this case). You also can not promise your child it will never happen again so the fear from the incident is something they have to live with, but you can at least ensure that the dog that did it can't do it again. Any dog trainer will tell you dogs have teeth for one reason - to bite. NO dog can be guaranteed to NEVER bite - some do it out of fear or pain, and some are just plain aggressive. I hope this works itself out with little stress on your family. A dog owner is responsible for keeping their dog under control, and if she was negligent and the dog was loose and attacked your boys like it did for no reason...well, let's just say that they're lucky that all that was needed was stitches. People die from dog attacks. Okay, enough from me!!! ;)
