A new home

     It's the second Thursday of the month so it's time for a new challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil.  Our lovely Elaine has chosen a theme of "Graduation or New Beginnings".  I've used one of Mo's "Tall Houses" on my card to create a housewarming card.  Some great Simple Stories papers give it a bit of vintage feel.

     There's an extra week between this challenge and the next so you have three whole weeks to find a great Mo image and play along for your chance at a $5.00 gift certificate to Mo's store or a nod as one of our Top 3 picks.  Come play along!
     Thank you all so much for your well wishes yesterday.  It's wonderful to be feeling better and more like myself.  A special thanks for those of you who have sent up prayers for me.  I know God's hand has been on me from beginning.  Yesterday I cooked supper AND baked a couple of things, something I haven't felt like tackling in a while.  Energy!  WOW!  It was great.  LOL
     Hope you all have a fabulous Thursday.  Stay tuned tomorrow for some Stamping Bella fun.
