Hello Friends...

Well I am back with this weeks challenge over at 

This week the sweet and talented Ros is our host
 and is asking us to Cheer Up!!

All you have to do to play along is
 make a "get well" card or a "Thinking of you" card..
Oh yea, She would also like to see something digital on your creation..
Pretty easy right.

Now if this little guy wouldn't cheer you up I really don't know
what would..

I had no red seam binding.. YIKES
So I colored some cream SB with my red copic marker..
Now thats using my thinker.. Hee Hee...

I used watercolor pencils and my copic markers to color this little cutie..
I got her from our sponsor this week Digital Delights..
If you play along with us you might have a chance to
win some of these cute digi stamps..

To get all the details or to check out what all the other gals made you can hop
on over to CCCB..


Just thought I would share a couple of photo from a quick little
trip I took this past weekend..

We pulled our trailer down to river in Arizona..

As you can see fun was had by all...

It just happened to be one of those weird weeks when the weather shot
up over 100 degrees.. Crazy..
Thanks goodness these sites had power and we have an air conditioner..
So crazy that we had to use our air conditioner.. It's only the 1st of April
for goodness sakes..  By Sunday it had cooled back down..
Just when we were leaving..

Thanks so much for stopping by..
Thanks so much for all your sweet comments..
It is much appreciated.

Hugs, Linda

Linda, I hope your dad is doing is so hard to see them sick. The weather has been a little strange but I will take anything under 100°...lately I have been turning the heat on for about 10 minutes in the mornine and the AC on for about 10 minutes in the evening...all in the same day!
