I finally got to complete a challenge this week. ! Yay me! :) It is for Allison. The requirement was to use a large (wide) ribbon. I had a whole other idea in mind when i started this card, but this is what I ended up with. I used another of my new bellas. Merrybella, Isn't she fun? I was so excited to use her. My friend Carol stamped a few images before mailing it to me and warned me that I may have trouble stamping her. I DID!!! UGH!!! I cut her up! GASP!!! I heard you all do it! :) lol! I know, I know!!! It's horrible!!! But it had to be done! :) and believe it or not it works 100% better this way. So.... Don't fret my bella lovers. I will still take good care of her. :)
My Riley I made this morning. I love him and have not used him in a long time. i think he is my favorite one. Coffee and a treat in hand. Yep, my kind of relaxation!!! I used my bic markers to color him in and love the way it turned out. Swiss dots CB folder and he was pretty much done. I also used my cricut to cut out the scalloped edge and he is cut and pieced on to the white cs.
Hannah is miserable today with her eczema. It has me frustrated and sad. She has been burning and itching all day. she rubbed it so much this evening it is raised and bumpy and all flared up. Please remember her in your prayers still. It is much more than just a little itch. It is literally driving her crazy. Iam always telling her that God is going to heal her when I put on her meds. I try to every time like the pastor told me to, but I sometimes forget. Yesterday Tommy Ray was in the kitchen telling her over and over "Jesus is healing you Hannah" It gave me chills b/c he never really hears me say it. I asked him what he said and he just kept repeating it. i came back fromt he pantry and he said it once more .. paused and kindof rolled his eyes and then said "or he's gonna turn you into a mountain or sumpin'" then shook his head and walked away:)
They have also completed their first week of homeschooling. It was more practice and an introduction back to it ... but they shocked the socks off of me! they did great! I am so proud and very excited for the year ahead. As a prize for Hannah, we bought the the new movie out called Ariel's Beginnings. They got to watch it in her room the other night and have a camp out. they really enjoyed it. I had to sleep in her twin bed b/c I was afraid to leave them in there alone ((i was sneaky and they do not know I did.)) It was fun for them. I had a mess though:). I think I used 10 blankets total to make it soft enough:) lol!!!
She has almost lost her 'bunny tooth' .. ANY day now! And we have a tropical storm Hanna out there a brewin. UGH! but she thinks its cool that it is her name, lol. thanks for visiting me tonight. i have a lot of gals to catch up on and go see what you have been up to. It has just been a few days since I have been off the computer ... but I have missed so much!!!
