This last week...

...has felt like a bad dream and I will be able to wake up at any moment...and all of this will not be happening...but unfortunately I know its not a dream its very real...

...last Monday my dad called me to tell me I needed to come over he had something to tell me and he couldn't tell me over the phone...the news of him having a brain tumor has been a shock to all of us! He will be having surgery on Tuesday in Spokane ,WA. This last week I already had driven him there twice and we will have alot more drives to Spokane ahead of us.

For my friends who have prayed and added him to their prayer lists THANK YOU...please continue praying as I know how powerful the power of prayer can be...

This Is A Happy Life!

Today is a great day...the weather has just been wonderful this week...and it kinda stinks that we'll be cooped up in the car all day but we are on our way to get our brand new dining room table and its time for a ROAD TRIP...once we get there we will pick up the covered trailer and then get our brand new table and chairs...I can not wait to eat together as a family at this table...and the best part of all Mason will finally have his very own chair and he won't have to use a stool! Now the next two deliveries will bring us our outside lights which should be coming tomorrow actually and then our new washer and dryer which will be delivered to our new house! Yeah!!!

Today I have a couple of cards to share...

I am still loving the Dear Lizzy "Spring" line...I grabbed a bit of MME and I also used the NEW March Stampin' Store Kit {Adventures in Happiness}.

I might be hard to tell here but I paper pieced the heart flower (again with scraps from the Dear Lizzy "Spring" line) and I used {Life's Little Moments} "you" by Ippity and the March KOTM {Rockin' It Unity Style}.

Thanks for stopping by today!

I wish I were a cat!

Doesn't he just look so peaceful? This is how you can find Morris many afternoons...if he's not there sleeping he's in my lap bugging me while I work.

...came and went so fast! It was a great Monday...busy but great!
When I finally had a chance to sit down...I made this card for the Couture Cardstock challenge on their BLOG: make a card or LO using yellow CS. I don't own any of this awesome CS but visited this both at CHA and it is really amazing...I wish someone local would start carrying it!

It is so hard to get a good photo at night :( ...sorry about that!

I used: Dear Lizzy {Spring Line}, Tulle, Unity Stamping Co. {Could I be any Cuter?}, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder and Core'dinations CS from their WhiteWash Collection.

Thanks for stopping by!
