Happy Mother's Day

It's been another 'whew!' weekend...  It began on Friday with a very full day into the evening, then up again early on Saturday.  Master's Harvest & theWay Christian Fellowship was one of almost 500 churches hosting the Beth Moore simulcast, "So Long, Insecurity."  There were 300,000 women who gathered in various churches to view this simulcast.  How amazing!  I was blessed  : )  I thought when I got home that it would be hard to 'come down' from all the excitement, but almost as soon as I sat down, I began falling asleep.  I tried to stay awake for the next 7 hours (it was soooo hard!) - I probably was doing the head bobbing thing for awhile - hee hee!  Today has been better, but I'm definitely ready to hit the sack!  So why is it that it takes so much energy to have fun?  Huh, huh?  I'd really like to know that.

I am pretty much running on cookies tonight - lol!  My DH made some yummy chicken and rice for dinner.  That was a couple of hours ago.  I think my energy is simply powered by cookies - really!

On Friday, I helped my mom plant some flowers.  They look so good!  She chose some really pretty ones too.  I would love to have flowers in my yard.  The thing is that if I don't plant them and maintain them, it doesn't get done.  AND we've had a pesky gopher that kept eating everything I planted.  That made me so mad!  I decided that until I know that the gopher has gone to bother someone else, I wasn't going to waste money buying flowers.  Grrrrr!!!  Anyway, with the thought of the outdoors, birds and birdhouses, I made a Mother's Day card for my mom.  I hope she doesn't check my blog - lol!  I think she'll really like the colors and image.  Of course, she'd like anything I made...

Would you like to know the latest dumb thing I did?  For some reason, I thought that this sketch was the current challenge at Pixie Cottage.  I was so excited that I had followed their sketch and was getting ready to post for the challenge.  Where did it go?  I don't know WHICH week they had it, but it certainly is not the current challenge.  Duh...  I can't believe I did that.  But you know what?  I can still enter this card in Pixie Cottage's current challenge which is for Mother's Day or a Special Lady! Ha ha!

Nesties:  Circle and Scallop
Sentiment:  Computer

Dimensional foam dots behind image...  Dew drops were colored with B05 copic marker.  I LOVE having just the right color!  The yellow cs was too blah in some areas, so I made a 'stickles' design.  Since I needed to get this in on time, I had to take the photo before everything was dry.  The stickles are so much more sparkly than you see here...

It's time for another Karen's Doodles US Challenge!!!  This week we're looking for your projects for mom.  Be sure to check out the amazing talent the DT has to show you on the challenge blog also.  Here are the wonderful prizes you could win:
Wow... I wish I could play - lol!  So color up your favorite Karen's Doodles image and make a card for your mom or someone special for Mother's Day!  For those of you who have lost your mom...  I want to say, "I am so sorry for your loss."  May our Lord comfort you and surround you with His Love! xxx

I hope that you've had a terrific weekend, my friends.  I'll be back to continue the saga tomorrow!

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul ~
