When Life Hands You Lemons.....

Hi friends.  When life hands you lemons, throw them back and ask for chocolate!  That's great advice and also the sentiment in this card. :)

This card makes me smile.  I love these little mice.  They are a free digital image from Mary Ellen at Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps.  Be sure to check out the rest of her adorable digi stamps on her blog.  She's an incredibly generous lady and very gifted.  I love the places that her imagination takes her in her drawings. :)

I added glitter to the sugar cubes to make them look real and because it's fun to play with glitter. lol

  • My sister had her 2nd surgery in 4 months for the same problem and came through well.  Please pray for her a she heals.
  • The great things we accomplish when we work together as a family.  Not only do we get things done, but it's so sweet to work together.
  • A friend, who has been seriously ill, is doing much better.
  • My hubby found a new paper cutter for me at a thrift shop for $2.00!
Have a wonderful day!!!

Inky hugs!

Last week at our OBX beach house, we had pizza our first night there (all 10 of us) and when we were finished, my daughter turned to me and said "I wish we had thought to get some chocolate," and I agreed. With that, the doorbell rang and it was a delivery person with a beautiful giant basket of chocolates and other goodies! How's that for answered prayer! It was a much appreciated thankyou from the owners of the house we rented. So that's my chocolate story for today.
