Here Ye, Here Ye - Big News!

Hi friends ♥
It's been awhile since I've been able to post and visit :(
 Our youngest daughter has been gravely ill,
in and out of countless doctor's offices and the hospital several times.
She's finally showing improvement
and we pray that she's on the uphill side of the battle.
I can't thank you enough for the words of encouragement and prayer!
Onward to my card!
It's good to be back in the Cabana!
Had to 'dust off' a few things out there and look to see where
everything wandered off to, including today's
3 Musketeer Mystery image - whew!

Jeanette was the hostess this month, with an image from a company
I'm not familiar with, Kenny K digital/stamps.
What a unique image, one I confess I had no idea what to do with!
So this is my humble card offering with the image,
and you can see what Jeanette and Barb have made with it, too!
Since the News Kid image was all about the arrival of snow,
I added the prismacolor marker colored image
 to a card base of winter/snow dsp - Crate Paper's
'Bundled Up' stack, a seriously YUMMY paper pad!
You may notice the fire hydrant is propped up 3D
because I made a total mess under with a blob of marker
because it looks really cool that way!
  Hee hee!! *wink!*
Thank you, Jeanette, for providing this fun image this month!
Big Hugs, Bigger Blessings!

  5. Welcome back, Kelly ! Glad to hear that V is feeling better. Keep my fingers crossed that it stays that way.

  10. Kelly, I am drooling! Your card is so cute!!! I love it! And I didn't think (with all you've had going on) that you would even be able to create/post today. Not only did you do so, but you WOW'd us!
