Had probably one of the worst nights ever last night. So much heartache caused by my older brother who is an alcoholic and drug addict. He is 32 and lives with my parents...no job... My other brother and I are concerned for their safety and this point so prayers that they finally do kick him out soon would be appreciated. All this stress has been pretty hard on me today.
Enough of the drama. This card was my little bit of craft therapy today. I used Simply Charmed to make the pot of gold. The stamp is from K Andrew Designs Sweet July stamp set. I put Crystal Effects of the shamrocks which are also from Simply Charmed.

I am entering this card in the Paper Playtime Sentiment Challenge this week.
I used K Andrew Designs animal pun stamp set. A friend of ours broke her hand in karate class this weekend, so this is special just for her. I used the Create a Critter 2 cartridge to make the monkey. The shirt came from Paper Doll Dress Up, but I manipulated it on my Gypsy to get it to fit the 3" monkey. I hand cut the karate belt and punching bag. I used Crystal Effects to add some shine to the monkey face, belt and boxing bag.

Once you use an ATG gun it's pretty hard to go back to regular tape runners. The regular ones run out SO much faster and the tape isn't as good.

My husband had to have surgery yesterday. The kidney stone was too large to pass on its' own and had gotten stuck causing his kidney to swell up. OUCH! The doctor used a laser to break it up and put a stint in that will be removed in a week. He's home now resting.
Thinking I need some serious down time and craft therapy right about now. :-)

Nothing but drama at our house. My husband had to go to the ER via ambulance at around 1am. I tried to get him and our 3 year old there myself, but I have been going through terrible kidney pain the last couple weeks, so I don't know how I would have gotten that done on my own very easily. Poor Meghan was very confused and scared about the ambulance...although she would have been quite a bit more freaked out if it had been me going.
Anyway, my husband has kidney stones and an infection. They are admitting him to the hospital and thankfully his mom is with him. I know our family could really use some prayers. I am headed up to Cleveland Clinic for my own kidney problems on Monday so hopefully I can get some help as well. I think we're all a little sick and tired of being sick and tired.

I hope you are all having an excellent Wednesday. This is Julie posting from thecricutchirp.com I recently really got into making beaded stick pins ot use in cards and craft projects. This is a pretty addictive hobby once you get started. I already had a TON of beads sitting around in my craft stash, so I was happy to use them.
I made this card as a special thank you to Kristal. It was a challenge for me as I'd never made a card like this before. Click HERE to find the YouTube tutorial that I used to make this card.
