Baby Elephants and Thank you's...

First - my card - I don't usually make baby cards and now I've had two in a row - It will be good to have them on hand.

Today's card covers three challenges:
Our Creative Corner Sketch Challenge - Sketch
CCEE - Baby Card
The Play Date Cafe - Colours - Pale Yellow, Light Green, and Pink - I used Barely Banana, Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink.


And now a quick note of thanks for the thoughts and prayers that have been lifted for Grant. His surgery day went VERY well. He had wonderful people working around him who made him feel comfortable and less anxious.
Unfortunately, he's now feeling anxious about the healing, and whether his fingers are tingling too much, turning blue, etc.....wow how our thoughts can reek havoc. So, I would ask for prayers of healing, and less anxiety for him. He'll see the surgeon again on Wednesday to get the dressing removed and a cast put on. He won't be drumming for at least 10-12 weeks. (He has figured out how to skateboard on his video game though!!!!) Thanks again, and blessings to you.

Have a wonderful Saturday - Joan

This is so soft and sweet and wonderful -- I'm so sorry I didn't know about Grant, but you are certainly in my prayers and thoughts and I'm asking He watch over Him with loving care to ease his pain and watch over Grant during his recovery! x0x0x0 Have a blessed weekeend, my friend.
