Glitz, Glamour and Sparkle

These cards were all made with Outlines Rubber Stamp #H228. Just by stamping on different colors of cs, cutting out layers and building each star, you can get so many different looks. I added Stickles to all of them and different embellishments to the fronts of each card. Be sure to click for a closer view.
I cut out all of these while sitting in the hospital waiting room since Thursday at 2 a.m. My brother was rushed in with a serious coronary. He's been on dialysis for 3 years and a heavy smoker for life. He was in terrible shape. The next day he had quadruple coronary bypass at 8 and was taken back to the operating room that evening to stop some bleeding. Now he's not moving his left arm and they are worried about a stroke. They will remove his balloon pump which is beating for the heart today and try to get him for a CAT scan of the brain. So f ar he hasn't even woke up sufficiently to know if he even knows us. I don't usually talk about personal stuff on the blog. I like it to be about papercrafting but I am asking for just a quick prayer from any of my readers. His name is John. They have only given him a 50-50 chance of making it. I sure would appreciate it. Thank you all.

Please know that your brother is in my thoughts & prayers! It is such a difficult time to see things happen to your family & you have no control. I have been there too. Know that the power of prayer will help get you through this day by day, minute by minute, second by second.

I would love to receive your blog in my email box. Can you tell me how I can be put on your list?

Stampin' Smiles from Ear to Ear,

Mary, I am so sorry, maybe he will still yet come out of it, that is great news about his heart though , lets just pray he gets better and won't have much damage done from the stroke...the prayers haven't stopped!
