GET WELL WISHES.....


Get Well cards were the theme this week for our SU ONLY Blog challenge. I don't know why I don't make more Get Well cards, because every time you turn around you need one. I had started this card as a possible swap card for Convention, and then when the time actually came I decided it was nuts to give a card away with this many tiny pearls on it......and I sorta tossed it aside with no sentiment on it yet. :) So last night at the 11th hour, when I remembered with a near panic attack that Get Well cards were the theme this week for the SU ONLY Blog Challenge, I went tearing through my stuff.......and found this card and it was a GWCWTH!!!! (get well card waiting to happen) YAY!!!!! I have been so strung out playing catch up since I got back from Convention, all I could think of was THANK GOD that HE cares about the little things for us. It's not earth shattering, but it sure was a happy surprise for me!! One of these days I will stop flying by the seat of my pants through life....but I might be just a tad bored when that happens!! Happy Tuesday everyone! Until next time, Karen

HAVE I TOLD YOU ABOUT MY GRANDCHILDREN?




Well, first off, they are ALL grand DAUGHTERS. That's right, SEVEN grand DAUGHTERS. So if I'm asked to make a "kid" card, you just KNOW it's gonna be GIRLIE!!!! My oldest grand daughters are Madyson and Chloe, who our family was blessed with when our daughter Bethany married our wonderful son-in-law Brian, who had Madyson and Chloe. So they were INSTANT grand daughters and they are beautiful and sweet girls who have added much JOY to our lives. Tovah was our firstborn of biological grand daughters. Tovah is a dark, curly haired beauty who is now SIX years old. She is full of life, she has a strong character, she is sweet as she can be, and we love her to pieces. Tovah dreams of being a ballerina veterinarian. Next born was Layla Page, who is now SIX too. Layla has curly blond hair and a smile that will lighten your load and quicken your step. She is picture perfect and precious. Layla loves crafting, she loves school, and she loves LIFE! Layla is adorable! Then along came Lami, sister to Tovah. Lami is adorable....she is just precious, she loves babies, animals, ballet, and her Snow White costume. I think she would wear it 24/7 if her parents let her. Lami is FIVE and as cute as a button. Next Layla had a baby sister named Brooklyn Sophia. Brookie is the cutest little girl....she has blond hair and big blue eyes, and is usually sporting a coy little smile. Brookie is TWO and a HALF(almost) Brookie loves babies, and Brookie loves PEOPLE!! She will make you feel special everytime!! Three months after Brookie was born, our youngest daughter had Olivia Lou. Olivia Lou is so dog-gone cute....she is just TWO and she is a very BUSY little two year old. She has an adorable smile and a happy countenance. Livvy loves DORA, and dogs, and babies. So that rounds out our little crop of grand daughters. All I can say, is how did we ever get thru our days without them??? Thank GOD for little GIRLS!!!! Until next time.....
