I love Saturdays...

Sleep in, spend some time with Jim, then play with paper and ink.  YAY!

Our friends Wayne and Bobbie had a baby this week.  Welcome Baby Faith!  Faith made an appearance about 6 weeks early.  She was in distress and the doctors decided it would be best to have her out where they could take care of her.  She's about 2.5 pounds and could use your prayers, if you're so inclined.  Thanks.  Here's a card I made to welcome her to the world:

The sentiment says:  "Sometimes",said Pooh, "the smallest things take up the most room in your heart."

Digi by Meljens, colored with Copics and Gelly Roll glitter pen.

And a challenge.  Anita Be Stampin' has wonderful images and I can't wait to own ALL of them!  LOL!  Her challenge this week was to use dark purple, light purple, cream, and kraft.  As much as I love me some purple, I was amazed at how HARD this was!  I didn't have the "right" purple copic for Willa's dress so I printed the image on white, cream, and purple paper, then cut and pieced her together.  It took for-stinkin'-EVER, but I'm happy with the results.  Let me know what YOU think!

Willa is being entered in the ABS challenge here.

I won last week (YAY!!! OMG, I was SO excited) and ordered a cute set of Anita's clear stamps.  Her images (digi and clear) can be found here.  Go see how talented she is!

Tomorrow Starla and I are going snowshoeing at one of the area parks!   If the game is still on when I get home I'm going to try to catch the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet.  Maybe another post after that.  If not, have a wonderful weekend.
