For Jacen Drew's Birthday

This Magnolia card is for my Great Grandson Jacen's 4th Birthday. For some reason this Edwin image reminds me of him. His birthday is not until the middle of the month of June but I have it finished and don't have to worry about a last minute card for him.

I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend and Holiday. We had a great time visiting with family until today. We received a call that my Mother is not doing very good. She does not know any of us and having problems breathing. I am not ready to let her go but do not want her to suffer anymore. I will go back in the morning to be with her.

Corrosive Christmas Challenge

This is for the Corrosive Christmas Challege Card. That is what this weeks challenge is, A Christmas card, so hope you can all join us. You have all week to submit a card. I am having to use my old ancient and slow computer. I can't get on blogger on Google Chrome at all. It will not let me sign in and I can't get on Blogger Dashboard at all. It also will not accept my password that I have had for several years. I don't know what is going on. I am using Internet Explorer on this old computer but on my new one I use Google Chrome so hope someone figures this out.

Have a great Memorial Day Weekend.

Rock Goddess

This is a Kenny K digital image I have had for awhile and I decided I needed to ink it up and play. It was a fun image to color.

We had storms all over Oklahoma last night. We didn't have anything damaged last night but our niece lost her brand new home. It pretty much leveled it but they were safe in a storm shelter.

I'm getting ready to go to the hospital to see Another Great Grand Daughter who was born yesterday. She is a cutie. I'll have some photos later.

Thanks for stopping by. I love reading your comments.

Wish RAK Birthday card

This is a birthday card for some of the June Birthdays. I love Penny Black hedgies. I make a lot of my birthday fairy cards out of the hedgies because they are so cute and they are easier to color.

Thank you all for all the sweet comments on Madison's photos. She is such a little sweetheart. I won't get to see her again until this weekend. I can't wait.

Thanks for stopping by. I love reading your sweet comments.

Another Great Grandbaby! Meet Madison!

Here is a few photos of Madison Layne Cooper. She weighed 7 lbs. 10oz and was 19 in. long. Her hair is plentiful for sure and she is a beautiful little baby girl. I fell in love with her the minute I held her and she wasn't but a few minutes old. This happens to me everytime I hold a new grandbaby and since Dec. 24th we've had two. We have one more due the last of this month and that is all for awhile. I do love all of them and our family has a lot. I now have 17 Grandchildren and 15 Great Grandchildren. God has certainly blessed us.

Corrosive Cupcake ChallengeH

Here is my cupcake card! I love this image. I received it through the Wish Rak group. I have participated in this group for over 5 years. I love the group which is a sub forum of the RAK group. I've met the nicest ladies through these groups.

I hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday.

Fun Group Challenge Card

A group of ladies and I have a monthly challenge that is among about 13-15 of us each month. One lady sends everyone the same images and we all color and have to post them by the end of the month. Here is my card made from the image Denise sent out to all of us. It is fun and we do this every month. We all love doing this challenge and look forward to seeing what the next image will be.

My eye is slowly getting better and my vision is pretty good for most of the day if I don't get on the computer too much or get in bright light so I am thankful for that.

Thanks for stopping by. I love reading your comments.

Tea Party!I

I had a little time to play this afternoon. I am enjoying every LOTV image that I have and a few that I have received in some kit swaps. They are so cute. This paper seemed to fit this image. It is some Nitwit papers that I bought a few weeks ago. I am really loving digital paper. I wanted to enter this card in a few challenges.

Card For Mom!

Here is my card for my Mom. I cased a card from Kittie Kraft blog. She had a tutorial on making this wreath. I was just playing around and didn't follow all the directions so not near as pretty as hers. She also used the MS punch so I had to use these flowers and hers were smaller punched flowers and I really liked them better. I worked with what I had but I now own the punch. Here is the link to her tutorial. Her wreath is really beautiful. Thanks for stopping by today. I love reading all your comments and appreciate the time you take to leave one.

I am sorry the photo is so bad but I had to take it at night and just wanted to change my blog.

Someone is stealing cards off people's blogs and putting them on CD's and selling them. The CD that Mo Manning was showing on fb was of Sugar Nellie images. One of my cards was on the CD and I just wanted to say that lady should be ashamed of herself. Mo says that she says on her post that she has permission for every card which is not true, No one ask me. Everyone is pretty mad and so am I.

Loving the Dandelions

I'm trying to get my blog to work so thought I would try a new post and see if it will let me on. I can only get on my blog thru SCS at my signature. I've been in the hospital and wonder if when I tried to get online there it messed something up. They have all hobby and social networks blocked so it wouldn't let me on my blog or fb or SCS. I've had heart problems in the past, a heart attack 10 yrs ago that led to emergency surgery (5 bypasses). I've never had a problem but yesterday morning I thought I was having a heart attack but thank goodness it was a gastric problem. They kept me in the hospital overnight to monitor me but let me come home at noon today with some new stomach meds. I am very happy to be home. Hope I can find out what is wrong with my blog. I can't sign on by typing the URL or anyway at all but thru my siggy on SCS. Thanks for coming by today.

Sitting here tIhinking of you......

This card didn't look right to me with her not having anything to sit on so I addes some ground for her to sit on and it looks much better. I did not take a new photo because it is too late to get a decent picture and I have to leave early tomorrow morning to go out of town for a Dr. apt. so I am just leaving it as is. Hope you like it anyway. Thank you for coming by today. I love reading your comments.

Corrosive Color Challenge

This week at the Corrosive Challenge we are to use turquoise and pink for our cards. I used this cute Penny Black image and some beautiful papers. I used scraps that I had left over and so I don't know the name of the paper. I colored her with copic markers and I really like how it turned out. I hope you join us this week. Lots of ladies joined us last week and I sure am glad that I don't have to choose the winner. Great job everyone!

Thanks for stopping by.....
