This week the SUO challenge is to make a card using your favorite Christmas colors - so here you have them!!  I am too tired to chat much tonite.  But my favorite Christmas colors are Cherry Cobbler, Wild Wasabi, and Soft Sky.  I just love Soft Sky and Cherry Cobbler together….doesn't really matter what green I throw in there. :)  So just as a  side note, this past weekend we got a new car, and it's Cherry Cobbler.  Black trim.  Heated seats and a sun roof.  I think it's my mid life crisis car.  Haha.  Not really cuz I'm not having one.  Anyway, too tired to chat tonite.  Happy Tuesday everyone!  Go show us what your favorite Christmas colors are on the SUO challenge blog!  Until next time, Karen

The SUO challenge is to make a fall themed card.  I actually made this one for the color challenge last week, but given that we are still moving in and renovating and getting ready to move my mom in, I decided to use it again.  I long for the days when I would pump out one card after the other, but for now I have to just stamp at a minimum.  I miss it so much!  Those days will return though.  I am enjoying my new stamp room.  It's slightly smaller than my old one, but it's cozy and warm and sunny and happy.  Someday I will stamp to my heart's content again….and since we move my mother in this coming weekend, I can say those days may come sooner than later! I still plan on doing a blog entry where I show the work we have done to our new home.  So fun.  So blessed.  So happy.  SO this card says THANKFUL, and I must tell you - I am THANKFUL to the MAX right now.  This week and last I have had a HUGE answer to prayer for one of my kids.  I am rambling, but I must tell you about this one. Not going in to a lot of detail to protect their privacy….but we as a family have been praying for one of my kid's situations and the Lord answered those prayers this past week in a MIGHTY way.  I feel as though the elephant finally stepped off my chest.  I always felt like "When this happens my JOY will be full"  - WELL THIS HAPPENED this week, and I am so happy for my kid I can hardly contain the JOY!!!  It's a MOUNTAIN TOP day, week, month, year as we see the dreams we have had for this kid come to fruition.  God is GOOD.  A mother is only as happy as her least happy child….and I have ACHED for this to happen, and it happened, and I am filled to the brim with JOY!!! Happy Tuesday everyone!!!  Blessings to all of you, Karen
