Happy Friday...

Last day of school for the week... It has been a bit of a rough week with losing our dog and still trying to get over my head cold. It is gone except I feel like I am talking thru a tunnel. LOL. I am just truly blessed to be the momma of 4 amazing kiddos. Who would have ever thought I would have ended up
having this many. There are times I wish I could have a few more. Each and everyday I am amazed with what they are learning and can't believe how time flies. I am so very lucky to be able to be home with them and be there when they need me. Ayla had her first day of internship working with the local podiatrist yesterday she had a ball they went to the Physical Therapy center in a few weeks they are going to the Cardiologist center as this is what she wants to do when she graduates. Ashley is busy playing basketball her first year and she is the Point Guard she is loving it. Jack is as happy as a lark as long as he is bringing home all A's he cannot stand to get a B or below oh, and he has a little girlfriend to boot. Then you have Chace my bundle of of Fire! He keeps me on my toes everyday and I love cuddling wit him and watching Sponge Bob.

Thank you Lord for blessing me!

Perfect Sentiments Challenge #15

Good Morning!
Today is Challenges # 15 over at PSC and this week all the designers have been busy making Birthday cards
but with a twist. The twist was to use some sort of resist embossing. I struggles with this for over a week. I tried using alcohol inks and pearl-ex it turned out ok but I did not like the end result. I tried using a versamark pen and embossing powder and it just was not working out. I also tried Vaseline it started to work then it dawned on me with the help of my sister i used Glossy accents over my stamped sentiment and then worked in ink all around. Finally a finished project!

This week's sponsor is : My Little Somethings:
The Prize: A grab bag of crafting supplies valued at a minimum of $15  (maybe more) Limited to US participants. In the event a non-US participant wins we will reward them with digital images .

Please be sure to hop along and visit all the other designer's birthday cards.

Broken Hearts...

Today we woke up by ourselves and had no dog to nudge us for his morning routine. Poor Little Gizmo you will be forever remembered. You were your Momma's bestest friend. You always sat on the top of the couch looking out the window waiting for me to get home. You would pretty much try to tear down the door as I tried to come in so, so excited to see me. We all love Gizzy may you rest in piece in doggie heaven.

Scrapbook Challenge Sketch # 278...

Hello everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Here at the Jones' household we had a 4 day weekend. The kids were out of school on Friday due to our mini snow fall. I want some big fluffy white stuff so I can get some snow pictures to use my LYB Winter Twig line. So, did any of you watch the Football games? I am so happy that the 49'ers beat out the Saints It's their turn again. However, a little upset about the
Broncos and Patriots game but let me tell you Brady has an arm. I hope all of you also had a chance to do the Blog Hop with Scrapbook Challenges it was alot of fun. Anyway, today is Monday that means a new sketch
above is my take on the sketch. Have fun join us over at SC and play along. Tell them I sent you.
