Hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day!
Mine was AWESOME! Hubby took the day off from work and spent it with ME!! We went out for breakfast ... did a little shopping ... went to the movies ... out for dinner ... and just spent quality time together! It doesn't get much better than that in my book!!
Cards to share with you today are for the following ...
"priscillastyles" store and is called "Heart Balloon Puppy Dog". Be sure to take a look around ... she's got some wonderful digis for you to create with and be watching in the next few weeks for a NEW RELEASE she's been working on!!
Here's another card using a "priscillastyles" image (Sweet Pea Flowers) and I think it actually fits the sketch today fairly well too!

SAD NEWS!I have more cards I could share but I think I will hold those for another time. Right now I would like to tell you about a dear sweet lady who has gone home to be with the Lord. Her name is Ruby Salyer and she is the Mother of Joan Fricker (Joan's Gardens). You have heard me mention Joan's name on my blog MANY times and I'm blessed to have become a close friend with Joan, and her mom Ruby.
For the past couple of years I've been making the 5 hour drive to Indiana to partake in the workshops Joan has at her home/store and it is during these times that I have gotten to know sweet Ruby. This lady (in her mid 90s) was as sharp and witty as they come and I must add ... very insightful!! We talked about gardening, home-canning, the soap operas (specifically The Young & the Restless) and many other topics. And a heart of gold!
At my last visit I was having some pain in my hip and even though she was in pain herself ... she was more concerned in helping me relieve MY pain. She advised me to take a long walk out in the sunshine and say a prayer to God to help ease my pain. And let me tell you ...the lady knew what she was talking about. The next morning when I woke up ... the pain was gone and she & I both had a pain free day that day!!!
Sweet Ruby will be laid to rest this week and I for one will miss her sweet smile and kind words! If you would like to send your condolences to Joan & her family ... the address is below:
25790 Stanton Road
North Liberty, IN 46554
Give a kiss & a hug to those you love today ... for we never know what tomorrow holds! Rest in Peace sweet Ruby ... you will be missed!
See you all tomorrow ...
