About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.
Unfortunately because of spammers I have had to put moderation on the comments. I will approve them as soon as possible, this also means I don't miss any.
I don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your comment.
The lovely banner was made especially for me by Amanda at Faery Ink Art & Design when I won her first blog challenge. family:";">

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes - Rain rain go away

 Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes

Find inspiration in the song or rhyme:

Rain Rain Go Away
Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
Brother wants to play
Rain, rain, go away
Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
Sister wants to play
Rain, rain, go away
Rain, Rain, go away
Come again another day
All the family wants to play
Rain, rain, go away

Hello, there. I don't know how else to reach you with this news. I can see you wrote comments about Dorothy Schultz’ blog when she’d post her wonderful cards. I got very sad news today from her daughter in law, and wanted to share.

“Hello to friends of Erling and Dorothy Schultz,

I know that Dorothy sent an update a couple weeks ago. She had a little trouble with that email.

I am sorry to inform you that Dorothy passed away last Friday, July 23 in the late afternoon. Erling and her children and spouses were with her when she passed away. She fought cancer for as long as she could. She was blessed to have visits from all of her grandchildren and all of Erling's siblings in the last week.

Erling is doing well. He is being well taken care of and is near family. COVID makes visits hard at his facility but we do the best we can.

If you want to send a note to Erling, you can send them to his daughter who will hand deliver them to his facility. She works there and can visit daily.

Deb's address is
Erling Schultz c/o Deb DeBauche
12150 Northcliff Rd
Elbert, CO 80106

Blessings to you,
Paul and Janet Schultz
son and daughter in law to Dorothy and Erling”

I myself knew Dorothy from, and had the pleasure of meeting her and her husband in person for dinner before they set off for a cruise from here in southern California. What wonderful people with huge hearts!
