On a lighter note...

....I've had some stamping fun recently. It's nice that, even in the midst of all the stress and job trauma, I can still take time to relax and have fun.

This is a card I made for Caleb Reese. Those of you who know the Reese family know Caleb had a serious eye injury and really needs our prayers. I thought a pirate card might be something Caleb would enjoy. My friend Shelly (papermoon on SCS) sent me these images. Thanks, Shelly.
