Thinking of You

Recently one of Haley's friends grandma passed away and I wanted to make a card for their family just to let them know we were thinking of them.  With it being fall I decided to use fall colors.  I haven't done much crafting in a while so I decided to go out to Splitcoast Stampers and see what I could find using a fun technique.  This card was made using 3 different fall colors of ink and a brayer.  First I rolled on the lightest color and covered the entire piece of cardstock, the medium color was next.  I rolled this color on leaving a little bit of the light color showing at the bottom.  Finally, I rolled on the dark color at the top.  Using the Upsy Daisy SU stamp set I stamped the daisys in Versamark and embossed them with white embossing powder!  I love the way this card turned out!

So friends, what are your Halloween plans?  Sidney is having a Halloween/Slumber party on Saturday.  We are going to carve pumpkins, play games, eat scary food and watch movies...sound like fun?  Sunday Haley has a costume party and Monday they are out of school for All Saints day so I took a day of vacation...sounds like I am going to need it after this weekend!  LOL!  I love it though...time flies so fast and they are grown before you know it!

By the way, everything turned out okay with Sidney's test.  They still don't know why she was doing what she did but at least there isn't anything scary going on, if you know what I mean.  Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers!

Take care of safe this weekend and don't eat too many treats!

Where in the world is Ms. Toni?

Have you been wondering where I have been? Our life has been so hectic lately that I haven't had time to create much let alone blog about it...and oh do I miss it! Haley has been performing with the color guard at all of the home are a few fun pictures to catch you up! I love their uniforms they are so sparkly on the field at night!

Miss Sidney is playing are a few of her in one of her games. This is the first year she has played and she is having such a good time!

We recently had a health scare with Sidney too that has kept me busy as well. She was experiencing blurred vision in her left eye a few weeks ago and then her hand and lip went numb, after all of that she ended up having a headache for about 8 hrs. I was very concerned about all of this and took her to the ER and they did a CAT scan which came back okay but the ER doc wanted us to follow up with her doctor right away and possibly get an MRI, which we did on Friday and I haven't heard yet what the results of that test were. Hopefully I will know something on Monday. It is so scary when something happens to one of your kids. It just makes you sick to your stomach thinking about all that could be wrong. So I have had to do a lot of praying and leave this in the Lord's hands because I surely can't handle this one alone.

I have a few more pages to share from Angelina's book that I will post later this week. Thanks for peekin' in on us! Take care of you!
