You won't believe what the GRAND PRIZE winner will receive this week.
The grand prize winner will receive a $25.00 gift certificate. Wow!!!
How amazing is that.
So, hurry on over and join in the fun.  Our Design Team have created some amazing cards this week and you won't want to miss out on seeing them. 

I just have to tell you the reason I picked the image I did for my first card.  I has brought back so many wonderful memories of when I was growing up.
When Arlana, Judi and I were growing up, we lived on a farm.  Our father raised everything imagineable, from every kind of animal to all kinds of birds.  My favorite time of the year was in the spring and summer months when dad would put the eggs in the incubator and we would wait for the eggs to hatch so that he could sell them.  I remember that we could hardly wait for the day to arrive for the first one to start hatching.  We would watch ever day to see their progress.  It was a wonderful experience to watch.  We had baby chicks, gosslings, and ducklings. And, a whole lot more....I raised a baby goose one spring (named Friskie) and it followed me everywhere.  However, I could say that about any of the little ones because they all thought we were their mother.  We would get down on all fours and wonder around the yard with them following behind us.  I will never forget when Arlana was about two and she decided that she wanted some lunch or something and took a bit out of Friskies webbed foot.  Friskie had a hole in his foot from then on.  When he was an adult goose, I could always tell which one he was because of that.  This image of the ducklings reminds me of my youth and I just couldn't resist coloring it up.  The ducks look just like the ones we raised. I used the quilled flower because I could just see the ducks reaching down and nibbling on it. They would nibble at the grass for hours.  These are just a few of my fond memories of my youth.

SSW96 and Digi Stamp Characters

Wow, I think I might make it this week.  I just got done with the main part of the billing for my real job and it is 10 pm at night.  I started it at 9 am this really long day.  Tomorrow, payroll and Insurance billing.  I think I will be really glad when I have this week behind me.  The first week of the month is always the hardest.
Thanks to Judi and Arlana for taking care of some of my SSW responsibilities Tuesday night.
I just got back Sunday night from visiting my daughter and new grandson.  He sure is a cutie and it was really fun to spend time with my kids again.
