A POLKA DOT WINTER......

The SUO Blog challenge for today was to use designer series paper, I HAD to use the brand new polka dot paper, I think I yipped with delight when I saw that dsp in the new catalog this year!  I have made a winter card for today.  I am kind of looking forward to winter this year, well...not kind of,,,,,I AM looking forward to winter.  First of all, sometime between the middle of December and the beginning of January, we will welcome our twins into the family, and that my friends, is GOOD STUFF.  Bethany will let us know this THURSDAY, AUGUST 9th, if they are having twin girls, which is what I expect.  For their sake, I think it would be nice since they waited so long if one of them was the first grand son, but as for me, I am so used to girls that I will be NO LESS thrilled with two more grand daughters......as long as they are healthy babies.....and wouldn't ANY gender of TWINS just be so exciting???? And so sometime in the winter we will go to meet these lovely children.  Then in later winter, Feb, we will travel to the islands in the Indian Ocean where our other children are, and get to have a 3 week visit with them.  Now, with those two wonderful things to look forward to, wouldn't YOU be looking forward to winter TOO????  I get the warm fuzzies all over just thinking about these blessed events!!  God is GOOD, all the time.... ALL THE TIME....God is GOOD.  Until next time,   Karen

I just shivered! No not at the thought of a cold winter day, but at a joyous time spent with grandchildren and the arrival of TWO blessed little souls. Oh, the card is fun , too. LOL Big Hugs...

As always your work is just gorgeous! I especially like the way you used the sweater trim - I have GOT to get mine out and play with it.
