Nice note

Hi ladies,
Here is an excerpt from Diana’s Caring Bridge site to remind us of how important our cards are to our friends.
“I just received the cutest card and gift in the mail from Marie. It made me cry. Besides being very pretty with burgandy flowers on and in it, there is a pretty white hanky in it for me to use for all my crying spells. There also is a pretty little ornament of sorts with a heart in the middle. It's so cute, I think I am going to use it on one of my sweaters that zips up the front as a pull, or a jacket pull. Anyway, so many of you at SendLoveToday.org send me the most beautiful, adorable cards and gifts. They always brighten my day and make me cry. Just knowing that you spend time out of your day making them for me and writing a little note of friendship and love in them. I wish that someday I could meet each and every one of you. I love you very much! You are such wonderful ladies! I am so blessed to called you my friends. “

Hi everyone,

We have two new friends if you have time to send extra cards. The first one is John W. who is 53 years old. The second is almost 3 years old. Her name is Briannah O.

Have a great day!

Summer inspiration

Hi ladies,
I was watching Project Runway this week and they had to go out and take pictures to inspire their fashions. That would be a cool idea for our cards. Look closely at your pictures and see what colors or designs jump out at you and transfer that to your cards.

Have a wonderful Saturday!

Hi everyone,
I have not updated in a month...shame on me...LOL. I have a good excuse. I was in Italy for 11 days and then off to NY with my sisters and mom for a weekend. I will try more diligently now to keep up with ideas for all of you. Remember if you have any websites to share, please let me know. One that I love to use for lots of good links is:


Hope you can use it too!

Off to work on SLT stuff with the family!

Today has been a slow mo kind of day. As I was not doing my list of chores, I found this blog with some cool cards.....the triangle one is really cool and I just may have to try it later today. If I could figure out how to post pictures, I will start adding some of my own cards to share.

Have a terrific Thursday!

Artistic Outpost Gallery


Try this link for some creative ideas. They also have a blog to read too and they sell stamps. I have not ordered from them, but like looking at this site.


Memorial Day

Hi ladies,
Memorial Day is much more meaningful to me since losing my cousin to the Iraqi War violence. I now don't let a soldier go by without thanking him or her for their service. Eddie was very special to all of us as is every single American soldier. Be sure to take the time to thank them when you see them.

Prayer for those with Cancer

Found this today and it is beautiful!

Prayer for Those With Cancer
Bless, O God,all who struggle with cancer.Empower them with hope for each and every day.Provide them with loving and tender care, laughter,and the support of love. Grant them courage when they are afraid, comfort when they are in pain, and your blessing when all else seems hopeless, that in their fight with illness they may continue to praise you and glorify your name. Amen.
- Vienna Cobb Anderson

May already!

I cannot believe it is May already! Time flies. I attended Artiscape in April which gave me lots of fun ideas and then Adventures in Stamping in Akron. I wish I could devote more time to this because it is soooo much fun. Speaking of fun, one of the ideas I discovered is Zentangles. Go to www.zentangle.com to see what the fun is all about.

Another cool site

Hi ladies,

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. Life has been more chaotic than you can imagine. Here is another site I found recently that has lots of ideas and links. Hope you enjoy it.


Ohio weather has been wonderful; hope yours is too!

Stampington & Co.

Okay ladies, it is getting exciting. Stampington emailed me the proof for the words for our free half page ad that will appear in magazines starting with August Stampers Sampler and ending with the Summer of 2009 Art Doll. This should help SLT a lot and I can't wait to see it in print. Stampers Sampler is probably one of my favorites but I like Artful Blogging, Take Ten and Life Images too.

Book titles

Hi everyone! Does anyone have any specific books they look to for inspiration? Me, I am a magazineaholic. I love all the Stampington magazines....Take Ten, Stampers Sampler, Artful Blogging etc. In fact, Send Love Today is going to have a free ad in some of their publications this summer and fall. We hope that it helps to get our name out there and more people join us as volunteers. I will let you know for sure what issues we will be in so you can look for the ads.

Post your favorite book titles for others to check out!

Have a stamping day!

Verses websites

Some of you asked about websites for verses inside your cards. If any of you have sites you use, pass them on. Hope these are helpful:

Sparklensprinkle site

One of our volunteers, Michelle A. designs for Sparkle N Sprinkle...There is a pretty large gallery of cards as well as some techniques on their site at www.sparklensprinkle.com. Everybody might want to give it a look.

Sites you wish to Share

Drop me an email or leave a comment if you have any sites that you think our volunteers would like to have added to help inspire them.

Leaving a comment is not as hard as it looks....click on comments, type in your comment, put the letters that they show, then choose one of the options for your name. If you do not have an account and do not want to set one up, all you have to do is click on the Name/URL and type in your name (first is enough) and then be sure to hit Publish Post.

Hope that helps,

Notice the new poll

Me again,

I added a poll for you on the left. Add your opinions so that I can help make this blog more useful for you.
Hi everyone,

The week has been a chaotic one with 7 new friends joining Send Love Today, and lots of situations at my house to take me away from the computer. If you know anyone who would like to send at least one card a week, please lead them to our website...www.sendlovetoday.org....we are ALWAYS looking for more help.

One website I absolutely love is Split Coast Stampers. This site can give you specific ideas for the Stampin Up stamp sets you own.


Another one I absolutely love for inspiration is Hero Arts:


Hope these are helpful!

Have a chocolate egg filled week....unless you gave up chocolate like me
