MAY'S BLISSFULL ATC SWAP

HELLO EVERYONE!!




How are you this bright Wednesday




morning?




I have just about had it with blogger...




They won't answer your questions.




My first problem was lightening struck




our Internet provider and it was down




several days as they waited for a part....




then blogger went down...




then I went down.




I will probably have to have another




colonoscopy.




My precious son is having knee surgery




on May 26Th at high noon.




He has never had surgery before, thus




he has had no anesthesia, so




I PRAY, ALL WILL GO WELL FOR HIM.




I participate in the








Wendy is our lovely hostess and




creator.




The theme this month is




LET'S GO TO THE MOVIES.




Now when I went to post I just had




the little wheel in the center go




around and around...I switched to old




Editor and it allowed me to post




pictures which I did 6 times and could




not get them in the right order or




even delete duplicates.




My ATC Partner is




Sweet Fran








She loves oranges and browns and I




ALREADY HAD MINE MADE and wondered




WHY IN SPRING I was making a little




book in mostly orange and browns....




so you will see the last pages first.




God cares about even the little things that




make us happy.









This is the last page of the booklet.




It contains the ATC I made for her.




I can post this now because Fran




received the package last Thursday.










This was the first page I made to




hold the ATC and I really liked it




but........



















...but the construction paper did not

hold. As I was doing the final inspection

before putting it in the mailer...I was just

sick it had tore but so very glad I found

the mistake so I could fix it.









Fran loves Nancy Drew.


Her ATC of course had to be a

Nancy Drew Movie.

She has a wipe board to write clues

on, even though it was made after

Nancy Drews' time..





Of course there is always the

"concession stand"

with the glass case of chocolate

screaming your name and the pop-

corn turning your senses into a

zombie state...

"sure I'll pay anything for that smell".

My husband nor I have been to a

movie in years...15 or more.











Of course you must buy the ticket.

I love to keep my ticket stubb from the

movie or anything I attend.










This is the front of the book. It was




tied together with a orange/bronze colored




vintage ribbon from West Germany.




It was fun making it and Fran said she is




putting it on her inspiration board.













This is the thank you card I made




for Fran.












PLEASE REMEMBER ALL THE FLOOD




VICTIMS. For some, their home is all




they have. May they feel and see God's




hands at work.




I was in the worst flood that ever




hit our town. My husband and I were




trapped in a grocery store...it was a very




scarey time.






PLEASE REMEMBER IT IS




RUSH WEEK




AT THE




BLOGGERETTE SORORITY.




DEBI HAS WORKED VERY HARD TO




MAKE THIS A FUN TIME.




IF YOU RUSHED LAST YEAR, YOU




CAN RUSH AGAIN...but you don't




have to.




There are alot of new Sisters to




"WELCOME!"










"WHERE FLOWERS BLOOM SO DOES




HOPE!"


~Lady Bird Johnson








THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR




SPENDING A PART OF YOUR DAY




WITH ME.




I SO ENJOY HEARING FROM YOU.




IT MAKES MY DAY HAPPY




AND I FEEL BETTER.




FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE DOWN,




PLEASE, PLEASE REMEMBER HOW




VALUABLE YOU ARE AND SAY A LITTLE




PRAYER AND ASK GOD TO SHOW YOU




THE GIFTS HE HAS PLACED WITHIN YOU.

Well I had left two comments on your old post and now I understand all you have been through. I went through heck and heck last week with blogger. Wonder how long this nice smooth process will last? You work is wonderful. Blessings

I will pray that your son does well. So sorry for all of your problems lately! Doesn't it seem like feast or famine sometime? Loved looking at your cards. This was a fun challenge.

Becca's Dirt said...

Good afternoon Debbie. How are you these days. Sorry I haven't been around lately. Looks like it was fun creating the little book. The floods are so terrible. At least they are able to divert some of the floods by opening the levees.

I've wondered where you were lately - missed you.

Prayers for your son's surgery!
