kid's birthday card

For those of you who have read my preceding blogs, I just want to start this one with news from my MIL (mother-in-law).  I believe that all the positives vibes have been helping her!  She's not suffering right now.  She has regained her speech.  The eyesight is not there... but at least she's doing better for now.  She will not be getting better that we know... but at least she's not in pain.  We have no idea at this moment how long we still have her in our lives.  But we are treasuring every seconds.

My husband came back home after spending the weekend there with his siblings.  It was quite an emotional time for him.  The kids and I were really glad to see him back home.  We are taking it day by day right now.  But with all this crafting and the wonderful comments that everybody have posted, as well as with all that crying on Friday... I'm doing ok right now. 

Today was a wonderful easy going day for me and the kids.  We did what we loved the most... the boys video games, my daughter reading the 2nd book of Hunger games and me crafting.  I think this will help give us the energy for the next week.

Now for my last post for the day I did a cheerful boy's birthday card.  I had a wonderful digi from Dustin Pike that I wanted to use.  Here's my take on his great digi:
I had so much fun creating this card.  I used my quickutz die cut grass and sun.  I could not put my hands on my cloud :(  another die gone missing... oh well... I did one by hand and stamped the sentiment on it.  I used my square nestabilitie for the base of the dog house.  And I used glossy accent to show the drool and the eyes:
Isn't he cute?!?

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. Dustin pike - outdoor activity
  2. Going-buggy - card for boy or girl
  3. Crafty sentiments - for a child
  4. Cards for men - texture (the grass would qualify I think)
  5. Send a smile 4 kids challenge - for the boys -my 2nd entry 
  6. Craft your days away - just for children
  7. The pink elephant challenge - hello sunshine (I really went literally this time lol )
That's it for me for today!  Thanks again to all my wonderful followers for your support.  You have no idea how much it means right now to us!!!!  

Bless you all.
