Life is beautiful...

Hi guys.
     I hope that you are all having a great week so far.  I have unfortunately be home sick the last two days.  I am feeling better this morning, however I just wish that I would stop going from cold to hot in less that 10 minutes.  lol...  Oh well, just happy that my throat isn't sore anymore.  I can finally swallow again.  I can't believe I am typing this, but I am actually tired of ice cream.  Yes, Jerry has been kind enough to be giving me chicken broth and ice cream for the last two days.  No, not pregnant just didn't feel good enough to eat anything else. 
     Anyway I am off to work this morning so let me get right to it.   On Saturday after we got home from our walk, and before I really started to feel crappy I pulled out Lula and Leslie from The Greeting Farm and made up a quick Fall-ish card for a friend of mine that love Owls.  I had gotten this new paper pad from WeR Memory Keepers and didn't realize that some of the awesome papers in the pad actually has these sweet little owls.  I wanted her to look like she is ready for the cool weather that is coming, so I paper pieced her shirt and gave her a matching headband. (Just cause it's fall doesn't mean you don't want to be stylish.)  I also doubled up on my sheer ribbon so that it would look a little darker and really add to that fall look.  I hope that she enjoys her card as much as I did when I made it. 
     Thanks everyone for wishing me well.  Just a cold that I knew was coming as both the M&Ms have had it the last two weeks.  I do have to tell you how proud I am of them because they did not miss one day of school over it.  I miss be getting weak in my old age as I just could not get up and about. lol.. I hope that you all have a great day.  Talk at you tomorrow. 
Hugs, Lisa G
