Life can be such a roller coaster ride, don't you think?  One minute you're up and anticipating the thrill of the ride, then without much notice, you're down...screaming your head off LOL!!!  This has been my crazy life which seems forever.  We've especially had some ups and downs with our almost 4 year old puppy dog.  My last update for him was that he didn't have use of his hind legs.  I also said that unless God intervenes and heals him, this would be his life.  Well... God showed up!!!  Yes He did!  As is usual, He is ALWAYS faithful - thank You, Jesus ♥  Sammy is now up and literally running.  I can't believe it... but it's true!  I took a video of him on my phone 'running' (well, more like sliding hee hee!) across the kitchen floor to catch an ice cube (one of his favorite things).  He also can now go potty outside which is a HUGE thing!  We were forever cleaning up messes - whew!  He's still a little wobbly and sometimes just falls down, but he's using all four legs again - yippppeeeeee!!!  He reminds me of a baby who is just beginning to walk... toddle toddle toddle PLOP! lol  Thank you so much for joining me in prayer for Sammy.  I am forever grateful!  I don't know what tomorrow holds, but I DO know Who holds tomorrow : )  As is each of our lives, God knows the exact day and time He will call us home.  I pray that you have received Jesus as your Savior so that you can spend eternity in heaven with me.  This is my sincere prayer ♥

Finally... here's my project for ya today!  Bet you thought I'd never get here...

This is Flowers for Mom by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD mini Sampler Edition #1.  Isn't she sweet?  I began with stamping this cutie with Memento Ink on Cryogen White paper.  I reached for my fave copics for coloring.  Clothing and flowers - RV99 RV95 RV93 RV91; Skin - E11 E21 E00 R20; Hair - E35 E34 YR24 Y21; Leaves - G28 G24 G21 G20; Wagon - E18 E17 E15 E13 C9 C7 C5; Bear - E55 E53 E51; Flower pots - YG03 YG01 YG000.

For the 'must have' bling, I've stickled her headband, pant cuffs and flowers.  How do you like the sewing?  I'm trying to remember to incorporate this into my cards more often.  I really enjoy the way it adds to the cards...

A first for me!!!  I colored a length of white ribbon to match my card.  I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was.  I chose a middle tone of the RVs I used to color the clothing.  I used the chisel end of my copic marker and let dry for about 10 minutes.  I'm sure you don't have to wait that long, but I didn't want to take any chances lol!  To the yummy ribbon, I attached a sweet little butterfly - I just loveee butterflies : )

Sentiment by My Time Made Easy, stamped with Versafine Ink in Vintage Sepia.  For the finishing touch, I've added another 'must have' which are pearls!!!  Yes, one of my most favorite products in the whole world... Opal Paper Pen by Viva Decor.  I have recently added three new colors to my stash lol!!!
