Compose a Card Challenge

The extremely talented Becky Oehlers has started a Tuesday challenge called "Compose a Card with Becky"; you have to check it out, tons of fun! I couldn't participate last week, but I jumped on the band wagon and participated this week. Love the colors she used and although I didn't have all the exact colors, I found some pretty close matches.

You can pop over to Becky's blog (links above) to see the requirements for the card; it was really hard to photograph to capture the embossed lines as well as the white on white layers. Or maybe I need to learn better photography skills...ah...that "might" be it!

Because the card was all white, I used a piece of Hibiscus Burst card stock to help it stand out.

I love the white on the card; but I have to admit, it was tough not to add an additional mat of color between the two white layers. LOL But that would have been against the rules and I really like to play by the rules (however, you would NOT have known that when I was a teenager...sorry mom!!). *snort*

Now, I sure wish the weather would cooperate and give us some great spring weather to go along with these fab spring colors! We've had snow, sleet and rain today and it looks like that's the forecast for the next few days. Bummer - I need some sunshine!!

Update on our 'little man'; he celebrated his 10th birthday on January 30 - amazing! And to think our oldest will turn 14 in a few days and start high school in the fall? YIKES....how did I get so old? HA!! Our little man is doing good - we're right in the window of when the 'episodes' happen so I'll keep you posted. We have an appointment with a pediatric gastro doctor in early March; I pray we don't need that appointment but as of yet, we do not have answers to what is causing these episodes. I have a calendar at work and I have all the dates of episodes marked, notes about medication starts/stops, diet changes, etc., but for now, he's doing good. I'll be so thankful when we have an answer and I can breathe normal again!!

Thanks for stopping by, I love when you visit! And you know, Valentine's Day is just around the corner - won't you leave some love? Hugs, ~M.
