Miracles Found In Clovis New Mexico!

Hello my sweet friend and loved ones! Rusty and I are home and feeling so blessed by all of the love, messages, and calls! Rusty had some very serious health issues and I had to put him back in hospital in New Mexico where we were visiting our new grandson and family!  He lost lots of blood and had to have surgery while we were there, but the Lord placed us with a super doctor and nurses and hospital staff that really took care of us like family!  And thanks to all of them we arrived home this morning around 2:00am safely.  Several MIRACLES! HAPPENED DURING OUR ADVENTURE!!   THE FIRST WAS OUT NEW GRANDSON HOLDEN DAVID SEGLER ARRIVED AND HE IS SO WONDERFULLY AND HEAVENLY MADE!  When he was checking out of the hospital Rusty was being checked in, and there was a Dr Peinko that was a specialist that took him under his wings and gave him the upmost care he needed!! After four days in the hospital Rusty is home doing much better and will see a specialist here tomorrow.  So that was the 2nd MIRACLE!! Which also involved us driving 8 hours home and arriving safe and sound ! ( 3rd Miracle)  When Rusty was at his very worst in hospital I was asked to leave the room and I was so scared and worried!!
I was about to pass out in the hall when a care taker came by and grabbed me and sat me down and took specail care of me.! Her Name is Hilda she began to Pray with me and reminded me that God was with us and had Rusty in the best place for the best care!  She gave me such strength and relief that I was able to make it peacefully, through another tough time!   Hilda is a special Angel to us and she came back several times to check on us and continue to pray with us!! She and I are now sisters and will keep in touch forever! There were many nurses, aides and helpers that all went over the top with their care and love for us! The story of our journey seemed to spread like wildfire and three preachers from Clovis heard about us and came to visit and pray too!  Our SUPER HERO NURSE STEPHANIE
 just became like one of the family as well!  She has called me this morning to make sure we are ok and given me more support and guidance!  With all of the negative news these last few weeks, I just have to let you know that Our Lord is every where, with many good and faithful people helping others to feel and experience his love and care! The landscape in New Mexico is not so great but the people there are!   And all of our friends, family and Little Elm High School Family have continued to check on us and pray as well! There are just too many to mention them all but WE LOVE YOU TO THE MOON AND BACK!!!   Thanks for everything! Debbie and Rusty!!

Stamping on the RUN!! Wonderful Therapy Your Way!

This dress is a die cut and I made it on an adventure trip with stamp friend Lorna! We had a weekend of stamping and retreating and boy do I wish I could have another one soon!  I don't have much time to stamp as I have gone back to teaching! It has turned into quite an adventure in itself! I HAVE BEEN VERY BLESSED BY WONDERFUL CO WORKERS AND MY SWEET HUSBAND RUSTY, WHO'VE SUPPORTED ME ALONG THE WAY!   I have some wonderful students and some that don't know they are wonderful yet but I hope to teach them they are! I treated myself to a Saturday of stampin fun and it was great therapy. I am up this morning praying for all my loved ones and stamp friends and just had to post a few cards to help you "FEEL WONDERFUL" too! 

This little card is your homework, see that I am giving homework! Take a circle punch or die cut and start with it as the base of your design, add sentiment in the middle and stamp your design in center of base card then add circle one the top, matching paper, to the bottom of the card and a beautiful ribbon finishes the work of art!  It would be so easy to turn this card into a Christmas design! 

Use two coordinating designer papers and fold the corner over inside of the card to give a cute new look to your design!

Had to have color therapy time! Take some time and just color several images and turn them into a beautiful card ! 
Sending you hugs and smiles across the miles and lots of stamping fun for everyone!  See the new Holiday Catty on stampin up site and let me order for you! Free gift with a $50.00 order for new customers! debsegler@

Butterflies, flowers and dry embossing combined to give
a textured look to the card makes for a super fun and beautiful project. 
This designer paper is in the new stampin up catty along with so many new beautiful stamp sets and the new in colors of markers,ink pads, and card stock! Look on line and 
email me your order.  I punched the colored circles and then smaller white one to stamp my flowers on. I colored them with new stampin up markers, and then I punched the lacy border to add under the designer paper. The white background is embossed with folder and add just under the edge of the punched border. The butterflies were stamped and then cut out and bling adde to enhance the bodies. The two resin flowers were added to give just the right punch of color on the white area.
