Blessings, friends!

I thank you all so much for the good thoughts and prayers for Chrissy.  This past week(s) have been a whirlwind but we're so blessed to have loving doctors and specialists that go the extra mile. The journey travels forward but we do so with good spirits, a positive outlook and many prayers of thankfulness.  

And it's Spring Break week for my children ... YAY!  
We're so excited to have the upcoming week off of school ~ 
a much needed break and the babies home from school = a happy mama! :)

There is a super new photo inspiration challenge at Catch the Bug
challenge blog ~ this gorgeous rainbow photo:


For my card, I used the Ava Mermaid digi.  I paper-pieced her tail using these ocean themed papers and keeping the bottom portion to resemble the rainbow's colors :)  I wanted to showcase Ava as the focal point so I kept this card pretty simple in l/o and added clear blue button 'bubbles' scattered about.  


Be sure to stop by the blog and scoop up the adorable Friday Freebie ~ the adorable spring buggie!  And did you know that right now, the Easter Digis at the Bugaboo shop are 50% off?  So many fun cards you can make with the cache of Easter digital goodies - and on sale :)  

Have a beautiful weekend :)  I hope that rainbows and sunshine are yours and the snow and chill is melting away :)

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
