Meljen's Designs #107-Ovals!

Whew! I am running so behind today. As I explained to Melissa and Dee, I have just been so overwhelmed with life! April has not been a very good month! So happy to say goodbye to it! LOL

Today's challenge over at Meljen's Designs is Ovals! This was a REAL challenge for me because I own 1 set of ovals! I know this is hard to believe since I've been scrapbooking for many, many years and cardmaking for very long time too! I did try to purchase the regular ovals many times with no success.

Okay..enough's my card:

Card Details: Digi Image-Meljen's Designs, Patterned Paper-The Paper Studio, Cardstock-Bazzill, Scalloped Oval-Spellbinders Die, Ribbon-WalMart

Now..I also want to share a sad, but funny story with you. I got up at 2:30 am to let our kitty out to go "do it's business", at 3am I awoke and remembered I needed to let her back in. I go to our back door to look for her and see what I think is our chocolate lab by the door. I was just about to let her back in when Holly, our lab walks up behind me! I was half asleep..I took a closer look at the lab out there and realized it was a stranger. So, I got my son to go out there with me for a closer look. He was a sweet black lab. He is thin, dirty and is limping just a bit. So, 2 things might have happen. He fell out of someone's truck, or someone dropped him off.
I have notified the local shelter and vet, just in case his owner is looking for him.

Thanks for visiting today! Have a great Thursday!

A Flat Tire & Billy Currington

Now, wouldn't it be nice if Billy Currington rescued me from a flat tire! Well..that didn't happen, it would have been nice though!!
You see, this has been a stressful week. So stressful that I didn't have any time or mojo to make a card this week for Meljen's Designs. :( I asked Dee and Melissa if I could take a break for this week and they understood. Thank you both!!!

You see yesterday, out in the middle of nowhere, well...6 miles from home, I had a flat tire. Flatter than a pancake.
You see:

My hubby was working, my son was at work, and the only one I could call upon was my brother in law who was working near by. Thank goodness for him!

Now..I'm sure you are wondering  how Billy Currington comes into all this. I will tell you:
My daughter has been working on a contest all week:

She entered a video of herself and they are picking 4 finalist in the morning!
 The grand prize winner gets dinner with this awesome country singer AND........gets to sing a duet with him! How awesome is that!?
She is only 18 but is totally in love with singing...and this guy too! :)

Wanna help us out and vote for her? Go here:

Thanks for visiting. I'm hoping next week will be smooth sailing, compared to this week!!!!

Happy Easter!

Hi there! Well, today marks the 2nd week for our ongoing challenge over at Aud Sentiments, this challenge #51 uses the sentiment "Happy Easter", very appropriate for this week! :)This challenge runs until April 10th. I do hope you will join us!

Card Details: Digi Image-A Day for Daisies, Patterned Paper-My Mind's Eye, Border Punch-Martha Stewart, Ribbon-Vintage, Pearls-The Paper Studio, Cardstock-Bazzill

I really liked this image from our sponsor, A Day for Daisies, because I remember having a small, stuffed lamb as a child and carrying it with me everywhere!  I think I remember my Mom telling me I finally left it at one of the stores we would frequent. Maybe Winn's?  Anyhow...I loved that lamb, and I love this image. This card is going to someone special in my life.......hope they enjoy it!
