Profits Donated to Adoption two Ethiopian children come home!

My brother Jason and his wife are trying desperately to raise the funds to bring home their two Ethiopian children they want to adopt.  The fees are astronomical.  To read their story, please go to  In an effort to help them, I am trying to achieve a sales goal of $10500 so that I can contribute over $2000 to their final costs need.
Would you consider helping them by making a purchase in the next few weeks (before June 30, 2010)?  If only 1050 people make a minimum purchase of $10 each, I can meet this goal for them.  What does your heart tell you to do?
If you wanted to do a little more, you could host a book party and submit an order of $150 or more on my website. If you did that, then you'd receive a hostess set and free shopping dollars as well!!  That's what we call a win-win situation!!
Please consider one of the two opportunities and help me raise the funds.  100% of my profits from all sales from now until June 30, 2010 will go towards their fundraising efforts.  If you prefer to donate directly, please visit their website.  If you want to make a purchase that will contribute, go to mine at
May God Bless You Richly!

Father's Day Card

Looking for a Father's Day card's a simple one, but the texture adds a wow factor.  I simple can't get enough of using the Textured impressions embossing folders from Stampin' Up!.  The embossed image is so crisp and I think it adds so much to a card without going overboard.

The colors of ink and paper used were Kraft, Soft Suede, Not Quite Navy and Very Vanilla. 
Tools used were the Big Shot, Square Lattice Textured Embossing folder (Summer Mini 2010), Paper Piercing Tool, Mat Pack, Paper Snips, Earth Element Brads, and Stampin Dimensionals.
Paper sizes are: Card--4 1/4 x 11", Textured piece--4 x 5 1/4", Soft Suede strip is 1" x 4", Not Quite Navy strip is 1/4" x 4". 
Stamp the Father's Day image twice on Very Vanilla cardstock, once in Not Quite Navy, once in Soft Suede.  Cut out the Soft Suede "Father" portion and use snail adhesive to glue over the Not Quite Navy image.  Assemble card as shown.  Use stampin dimensionals to adhere the Happy Father's Day image.
Please let me know if you have any questions and I'd love to receive your comments on my blog!!
Thanks for looking,
