Happy Wednesday!  I am home from Oregon and back into the wretched heat of Phoenix - HATE IT!  I miss the cool weather so much!  Hopefully it will be cooling down here soon.  My daughter continues to have some unsolved medical issues, but we are still hoping that they will be resolved, or at least get to a point that she can live more easily with the issues.  But one bit of good news, she was cleared by her OBGYN that is is ok for them to try to get pregnant!  I am happy for them, but worry about her health and that of an unborn child.  The Dr. is ready to keep a very close eye on her and she trusts him completely.  I pray that they will be able to conceive and are blessed with a healthy little one.  I would love to be a Grandma!

OK, down to the business of card making!  I have not been able to create anything new for over a month!!!  I am so happy to be among all my supplies again!  This card is one I did before I left on my trip.  It is for a nephew of mine.  He is a teenager, and I have a bit of a hard time making cards for that age.  The images & sentiments I used on this I won in a card challenge.  I really had fun working with them!  I think that they fit pretty well for a teen birthday, what do you think?

Thanx so much for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your week!
