This week Leanne wants us to us a puppy on our cards for Merry Monday
I used this sweet little digi image from Creativitybug.blogspot.com.
I had help coloring this with Copics from my blogging friend, Kara Lynne of Bright Hope Creations on my recent trip to The Craft House where I met her and 4 other blogging friends. See previous posts. She is such an amazing colorer (is that a word?) and such a great teacher.
Please join us each week to work on getting your cards done before the busy holiday.
Ramie has been in the hospital for two weeks today. They have scheduled their C-section for April 26th, the day after her birthday. She is being monitored twice a day and the babies are doing well. Baby girl is 2 lbs 2 oz., boys are 1 lb 13 oz and 1 lb 11 oz. So all have grown. She is starting her 28th week this week and that was the goal, but hope to go to 32 weeks. Please still keep them in your prayers.

I have to share with you the most wonderful weekend spent with these awesome blogging friends.
Colleen and I were the last to arrive in Wichita and were met by these 4 smiling faces.
Kara Lynne, Birgit, Marcia and Nancy P. We arrived on Thursday and had the most amazing bonding experience ever. Now, we already had bonded as blogging friends, but the bonding has increased ten fold. It was as if we had been friends forever. We talked, laughed, stamped, ate and had the greatest time together in this wonderful house called The Craft House.
This first picture is taken on the rainbow stairs which only shows a glimpse of them. The second one is the craft room and the third is the kitchen area. Now this house sleeps up to 16 people, but we were glad that we had a small intimate group. The 6 of us took over the whole craft room and were spread out on all the tables. Not sure we would have had more room for any more people.
Everyone brought a project to share and we learned how to color these cute little bear with Copics. Kara was a fabulous instructor and we each got one on one time with her.
Marcia and Birgit each brought adorable pop ups and Nancy shared her Finetec fluorescent water colors. Marcia also brought her Lindy magic colors for us to try. We really didn't have enough time to do everything we wanted, but had so much fun trying.
Unfortunately, Nancy had to leave on Saturday and it was sad to see her go.
Sunday, Birgit and Marcia had to leave around 12:30. Kara at 6:00, and Colleen & I didn't have to leave until 7:40. It was too far to go back to the house so we went to a Panera for a bite to eat and spent some time coloring. And I really did have some one on one time with Kara. We then went to JoAnn's and Kohls and to Wendy's to use up more time. We ended up taking the car back about 4:00 and to the airport about 4:30 for our journey back home. I got home about 11:30 and Col was after midnight. But what a wonderful time we had and the memories will live on forever.
Well, I am into my butterflies again. This is PTI's Butterfly Dreams which they are retiring. So glad I have it as it is one that I go to more than anything, especially the red one. I used CP inks in rainbow colors.
