National Day of Mourning

In case you haven't heard President Bush has declared today a National Day of Mourning. I am so sad for the families and friends of those who where killed at Virginia Tech yesterday. Having a son who is on a college campus everyday this hits especially close to home. I would ask that you would take some time today to pray for the families of not only the students killed and injured but also for the family of the gunman. The hell they must be going through right now must be unmeasurable.

I have heard from a couple of people that they like the punch charts that I have posted so I'll post a couple more now and then a card further down the post. Today lets see what neat things we can make with Oval Punches. I LOVE the Oval Punches but don't use them nearly enough! I really like the sunflower and the spooky eyes. Of course, the butterfly is adorable as well!

Alright, last night I had a good time stamping with a new stamp that I got from Cornish Heritage Farms. It is great because they have free shipping with $35 order! They have a cute line of stamps called SonLight Impressions and that is what this stamp is from. It is very simply called Love and Best Wishes. Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Rose Red, Watercolor Paper, and a plain part of designer paper from Fancy Floral Chick. Ink: Stazon Black. Accessories: Watercolor Crayons, Aqua Painter, Vanilla Organdy, Rose Grosgrain, Linen Thread, and a envelope charm.

Did you see the new clock on the left hand side? I saw it on another blog and thought it was so cute. Now you'll know exactly when to get back to stampin'!

Have a great day everyone!

Those shootings were so tragic -- what a sad story.

Thanks for the punch charts. I don't own many punches, but it's still fun to see what's possible with them.

Your card is adorable....as always :) ~Jenn

Lorie...hi! I just wanna say that I enjoy the Christian music so much!! I love to turn to your blog and listen to it as I'm creating cards...it's so relaxing and uplifting! :o) I tried to go to that site and I don't understand how to create my playlist, but that's okay. I'll just keep coming back to yours--I would anyway ;0) Yes, today is a mournful day. I've been incredibly broken-hearted over it and shed some tears at work as my homepage has yahoo news on it. The Lord is in control and even though there's terrible evil in the world, nothing happens without God's approval. Even the demons in the Bible recognized and obeyed Him. But I'm still so sad for the families. I've included a blurb on my blog about where to send cards for the family members of VA Teach in case you're interested. :)

I can't imagine the "pain" that all the students and families must be feeling. I pray that the Lord bring them comfort and peace.

Your punch charts are absolutely brilliant. TFS
