I have a fun project for you to try. I found this on Pinterest by http://www.creativejuicesdecor.com/. It is called "A Box of Sunshine". I am sending it to my friend, Martha, who is undergoing chemo every third week. I thought it might cheer her up. Darnell of http://www.djkardkreations.com/  taught me how to figure out Pinterest. I could never figure out who actually made what was pinned. I made a quick card to go along with it. This stamp from Stampin Up was used and I didn't get a real clear image but I did it several times and this is the best. I don't think she will be picky about it. Be kind to one another.

  4. This is such a fantastic idea, Brenda! It's probably been around for ages and I wish I would have seen it/thought of it when our son was away in college. I can just imagine the person opening up all that "funshine" and grinning all over their face!! And I love your bright, sunny, and CAS card to go along with it, too! I'm totally stealing this idea for a friend of mine, so thank you! And thank you for the shout out! It was a treat talking to you the other day!! Hugs, Darnell

  5. What a perfect card to send your friend, Brenda! I know it will make her smile! Guess I'm going to have to get Darnell to teach me about Pinterest. I have trouble finding the exact post I pinned it from. Stay warm, Greta

  6. Hi Brenda..
    just a query you said you had problems stamping the stamp.. it may not be the way for you but I find problem stamps stamp better on on those firm foam mats that are pricking mats and so use them for tricky hard-to-stamp stamps .. may or may not help..
    .. great work and pray God 's healing on your friend, very kind of you, pray too hubby is feeling better, Shaz in Oz.x

  8. Awww, what a great little sunshine basket you have made for your friend Brenda!! This will cheer her a lot!! I love your card and I think you got a great impression, that sun is awesome and I love that quote! You really brightened her day I'm sure! And it is important to eat a little something while getting chemo to keep your tummy from getting sick. Although my hubby won't eat. He eats his breakfast before leaving, then comes home and eats lunch. No snacks in the chemo room because he says it stinks. It doesn't but to him it does. So I will snack on an apple or nuts for him. lol Perfect little gift!! Hugs, Brenda
