Whoo! Whoo!

You did it!
With just a few clicks, you and others like you helped raise $10,000 for the Alzheimer's Association, one purple ribbon at a time!
The Purple Ribbon campaign made it easy to support the fight against Alzheimer's, taking it from the highway to the information superhighway. For every website or blog that displayed the ribbon, donated $10 (up to $10,000 or 1,000 unique websites or blogs), to the Alzheimer's Association for research and education programs.

That is very exciting. I am glad that I helped to my part for raising money for fighting Alzheimers Disease
If you want to get involved. Just click on the purple ribbon or

A different Request!

I had a girl that I work with approach me and asked me if I would make her a card for her Husband for Valentine's Day. I said sure. Then she said that she wanted a picture on the front.
They have been a part for a few months. (Family issues with kids and she helped her dgtr move out of a sticky situation and get set up in a new place down south.) Now that she is back. She misses the Guy and didn't know what to give him for VD.... Herself Hee! Hee! What better right. I didn't know really what I was going to do. She did ask for light pinks and greens and with flowers. Guess what girly.... Here's your lovely card. I thought that I would also put this card in the challenge CPS102

You look like you need a Kiss!

I could just Kiss you. I have to say when it rains it pours... Literally in the bedroom. I woke to DRIP,DRIP,DRIP and thought OMG Not again. its going to be R.I.P,R.I.P R.I.P to the poor husband that has to go on the roof to try and fix it. and hope to god that he doesn't get hurt or fall off. and get all that ice off the roof. Long...story. but, when we made our addition. On the house the roof is one way and the new addi- roof is the other way. So, the house roof melts and slides down and lands on the other roof. That snow sits and then freezes. It pushed up the shingles and wicked down the beams and came through the addition (new light fixtures.) Lovely right.... The boys went up on the roof and fixed it as best they could. and well three snow storms later. Its a real mess up there. Now it is wicking all over and coming in the BR. The ice hasn't melted and now it is almost 50 out and guess what... Drip, drip drip. I told the poor guy and thought he was going to go off the deep end. I can't go up there and fix it right.... Next best thing... Make him a card. He really liked it and told him to not worry about it right now. Mind you we are having a house full of people today for DD 9th BDAY. Yeah! right. You know men Just sit there and sulk and worry about things that you cant fix, change or do anything about right this very second. So why get all worked up about it.... worry about it for another day. So Bequiet and enjoy the card I made you. Anyways here are the deets to this nice card.
