A New Look....

Good Afternoon!  I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend.. I just wanted
to start off by saying A BIG THANK YOU,  to everyone who wish
my Dad well..  The good news is that he went home from the
hospital today..  I am feeling a little relieved!  He still has
along recovery ahead of him..  But I am praying he will
have a speedy recovery.  For those who don't know He
had his Gallbladder out!  At his age any Surgery is risky!
But he is doing better than expected..  I think that's
 because he hates the hospital so much.

I finally had a little time to play in my craft room, so I decided
to do the challenge from  The Play Date Cafe.. The minute I
saw the colors I knew what paper I was going to use!

Here is a copy of the inspiration photo!

Thanks again to everyone, I am glad you stopped by..
and Oh by the way,
Did you notice my new Look....  That's what happened
last night when I couldn't sleep!

Hugs, Linda
