Best Friends Forever!

This card is for the CMC Challenge Blog to do something bright.  I think this qualifies as bright.  lol!!  I love these colors together and love this Art Impressions image.   Come join us.  You can now color with any medium of your choice, pencils, any type marker or your favorite alcohol marker.  It is a fun challenge.

It turned really cold here today.  We were in the 70's which is not normal for Oklahoma and now we are in the 30's with a chance of storms and tornadoes.  We are supposed to have warmer temps tomorrow so am hoping this little cold snap is the last of winter but know this is wishful thinking.

Have a great evening everyone.

Liebster Blog

I was very honored to recieve this award from not one but two friends.  Marie and Dawn. Liebster in German means "dearest" and the idea of the Liebster Blog Award is to spread the love from on small blog under 200 followers to other small blogs which helps to spread knowledge and readership.  Thank you my friends for thinking of me.  Thank you so much ladies for thinking of me.  I appreciate your friendship and you are both wonderful followers.

To accept the award, you must:
1) Link back to the person who gave it and thank them for thinking of you.
2) Post the award to your blog.
3) Give the award to 5 bloggers (with less than 200 followers) that you appreciate and value.
4) Leave a comment on the blogs of the five people you have chosen to let them know.

So now I would like to pass on the award  - this was not easy as there are so many blogs I follow and admire but I did have to knock out all of those with over 200 followers (which did help!).  In the end I picked the following blogs, listed in no particular idea

Spring Tilda

Here is my card for the Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge blog. We had a beautiful photo for inspiration. I just went with two colors and white that I saw in the photo so hope it is okay. The DT's cards were all so beautiful.

Is anyone else having trouble commenting on blogs?  Some of my friends use word verification and I have tried up to 6 times to post a comment to their blogs and either I am going blind and didn't realize it or they are making it extra hard to post comments. I would be interested to know if anyone else is having problems or if it is old age!!

Entering this is a few challenges:

Divas by Design:  Bling it Up
Crafts and Me:  Shades of Spring
Paper Pretties:  Punches or Dies

Wishing For Spring!

This is one of the new Sylvia Zet images. I love her Wee stamps. This is Give Peace A Chance. I love her images.

We had some crazy weather last night. We got rain, sleet and hail all at the same time. It was weird and on top of that we had 40-50mph winds. Sounded pretty bad out and it all lasted only about 30 min. and was completely over. Then the sun came out. Did I say CRAZY weather?

I hope all of you have a wonderful day.

Challenge #143-Another Dimension!

This is my card for Corrosive Challenge #143. Another Dimension is the theme and you can really get into this theme, so fun and easy. Use any image of your choice and pop it up! I hope you will join us this fortnight.

We've had rain for 3 days and we really needed it. I am not going to complain but it has been pretty dreary. It is supposed to warm up tomorrow so I am looking forward to that and our Church Service. I will be working in the nursery tomorrow so I'll be cuddling the little ones. Have a wonderful Sunday.

New Baby Girl Card!

This is the card I made for my Granddaughter Jennifer for her new baby girl, Annamarie. The stamp is an Elizabeth Bell and sent to me by a dear friend. I inked it right up and made this card but needed to make sure she received the card and baby gift before putting it on my blog. Hope she liked it.

Happy Birthday Debra!

A Few More Valentines!

This cutie was made with a SS kit and it was a Valentine kit with non traditional colors. I think it turned out pretty cute. Thanks Angela for a great kit.

I'm just trying to get the last of the Valentines on my blog before tomorrow. Hope you enjoy them.

All were colored with Copic Markers.
We have snow on the ground, about 2 inches is all. They say it will be gone in a few hours. I'll bet the kids are kids are not liking that.

Valentine for Someone Special!

This image was free from Saturated Canary. I love all of Krista's images. It was colored with Copic Markers on Cryogen cardstock.

I am excited about our Church Valentine Party tonight. We will have lots of fun prizes, a great catered meal and lots of fun with our Church family. Glenn chose Mango Chicken for our main entree with a salad and Bridesgroom cake for desert. Ice tea for drinks and not sure what the appetizer is but I am sure it will be good.

Hope you all have a wonderful day.

Mardi Gras Colors! Outlawz C/P Challenge

This is my card for the new Copic/Promarkers Challenge over at the Outlawz Challenge Blog. All you have to do is go to this page that is hi-lighted and scroll down to you see the newest challenge dated Feb. 3rd and join us. There are great prizes and lots of fun over at the Outlawz. I sure hope some of my friends come join us this week.

Gunner has a heart murmer but they don't think it is a problem. They are also checking his kidneys to make sure they are ok. It seems that Jaimi and Kyle's chromosomes don't match to well. Gunner's older sister Jade was born about 19 months ago with her intestines on the outside so Kyle says no more children. Jade had surgery minutes after her birth to put it all back and was also in NICU for about 5-6 weeks but has done great ever since the surgery.

Baby Gunner!

Baby Gunner was born on Jan. 31, 2012 at 7:55 AM. He swallowed or sucked in some of the amniotic fluids while being born by C-section. They kept his basinet tilted at the hospital for a couple of hours and he started having problems breathing so they took him by ambulance to a larger hospital about 30 minutes away to their NICU. Today he is doing really well. He is off the by Pap machine and breathing on his own. They said they would be keeping him from 5-14 days to be sure he is breathing okay. They say he is really strong. He weighed 7 lbs. 14 oz. He was 19 3/4 in long.

Thanks to everyone that knew what was going on for all the prayers sent our way.
The bottom photo is me and my Grandson Kyle who is Gunner's father. The Mama hasn't got to be with him but was supposed to get released tonight and was going straight to the other hospital, hop in a wheel chair and go see her new baby.
