Carte Postale Mon Amie

This is another 3x6 card I made with Carte Postale for a demo swap we had tonight. I just love this set. It makes me want to go to France, sit in a cafe drinking coffee and speak french. he he.

sad news

Our friend Tracy's cancer returned in November, it's now in her bones. Her doctors gave her 6-12 months to live. She is a young mother of two little children. She is in the hospital in extreme pain and the doctors are trying to find the right combination of pain medication to help her and relieve some of her pain. Nothing they are giving her now is working. We're so worried for her and her husband and children. We'll be going to visit them next weekend for a fundraiser benefit and to spend a little time with them.

merci card

Yep, I cased it.
I FINALLY get a card made and I cased it from Stampin' Up! I requested this set for Christmas... from myself. Actually, we exhanged names in my family and I asked for Carte Postale for Christmas.
The card is a 3x6 card. Card stock and classic ink colors used include Chocolate Chip, Brocade Blue, Very Vanilla and Whisper White craft ink. I don't have the Very Vanilla craft ink yet, but you almost can't tell because it's on the Chocolate Chip card stock which gives it a little color. I also used a vintage brad and brown grosgrain ribbon.
The sad part is, this is the first card I've made all year!

Scott Waguespack for Chicago

My brother is running for alderman of the 32nd Ward in Chicago. (They vote in February.) He is such a hard worker, he puts in ALOT of hours with anything he does. I can't imagine him not beating the guy he is running against- he sounds like such a jerk who has no concern for the residents or neighborhood. Check out my brother's website here:

There have been a few news articles written about him and the race. You can link to them from his website. My favorite is one where they refer to him as "The Sleeping Tiger"!
