Hi guys.
     Miss me? Well  my computer fell off the face of the earth and left me in the dark for the whole week.  Eeeekkkkkk!   I can not believe how much I have missed talking to all of you and seeing what you have been up to.  Then our youngest M&M sprained her ankle this week and so she has been in an air cast since Thursday.  Rounding out our week the car decided that it was time to get some well needed attention.  I am sad to say that it needs a starter solenoid and various other things done to it, so it has been in the shop since Friday and I am sooo hoping to get it back at some point tomorrow.  Keep your fingers crossed for me.  All in all it really wasn't a bad week though.  The sun has been shining and the trees are turning colors, so it is hard to be down about anything.  lol...   Needless to say we have gotten some walking in this week and we are all glad that we spent our summer walking as we were able to get the kids to school one morning when the car died at a street light and a very very nice young man pushed us around the corner where we parked and the M&Ms and I walked to their school.  I am very proud to say that they were not even late getting there.  ( I always knew that my need to leave early would come in handy one day. heehee)
     The only bad thing about being without my link to the world is that I was not able to play along in any of the fun stuff over on the Farm Fresh Challenge Blog.  I sure hope that you guys did.
     So you might have noticed over on the Farm Fresh Challenge blog it is once again time for a Monday Funday challenge.  This week's sketch is another great one by Margie.   You really are going to love this on.  I had already colored up WS-Logan from TGF and so I just grabbed up my embossing folder and went to town to make a very quick but very fun Birthday card for a friend of mine.  So, be sure to head over and check out Joni's post on this week's sketch.  She has given you all the details as to what you have to do to play along this week. 
     I am hoping to get the chance to get to all your blogs this week.  So sorry for going black.  I hope that this coming week is much better.  lol...  I already have some of my cards for the week ready to go, so we shall see.  Until tomorrow, I hope you all have a great Monday.  Talk at you later.
Hugs, Lisa G

Wonderful card!!! :)

Amy said...

This is much better, I missed coming over and finding no card or post!
I love your attitude about your week, all in all it was just a bump on the road of life and it isn't that bad! I've got to remember that perspective when things aren't going perfectly!
Your card is just amazing, love how you've colored him and the paper you've used, such a great and happy birthday card!
Hope you get your car back super quick! :)

Amy said...

Ok, I just read what I posted and I totally messed up the first part!
I meant to say I missed you and I didn't like coming over and seeing no card or post! =P
