So... How ya Bean? :)




Happy Monday!  I hope you had a most blessed Easter holiday!  Ours was hopping from start to finish but truly the blessings are many :) 


Today I wanted to stop in and show you a card for Deedee's Digis Happy Monday Challenge ~ this week's theme is Make a card for the Eldery in your life.  This Week's Challenge: Reaching Out to Our Elderly.  As the Challenge blog states: 


Once each month we ask you to make something to meet a specific need in our community. Your challenge this time is to make a card or other handmade project to appreciate or just give a little extra attention to a senior citizen. This could be someone you know, or someone you reach through your church, a local retirement home or senior activity center, etc.

 Although I'm not really sure where I'll send this card exactly, I did want to show it to you!  I cased a similar card from this lovely blog I found.  This set I'm using is from Deedee's Digis "Coffee Time Teddies" and they are as absolutely adorable to see and color!  You can find them here, in the prestashop.





I'm sorry my post is so short :)  I have a lot of news to share, but each day gets busier and more challenging -  today I'm off to an unexpected dr's appt and know that He'll be with me as I go today.  

   Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you.
Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.  ~ John 14:27

Blessings!
Thanks for stopping by today!
