PPC #8 and a Happy Birthday WISH!

HAPPY MONDAY, Everyone!!!! 


MY ELI!!!!!

I probably should have used LESS PINK and quite possibly CUPCAKE TURTLE today instead of this cute THANKFUL TURTLE by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, but I just loved this image and still could give it to Eli today for his birthday!  He's such a super kid and takes everything all in stride.  You see, he's just 3' 10" and 42 lbs or so, quite small for his 8 year age (actually, the smallest in his grade).  But, I am thankful to him for the fact that he doesn't let kids teasing bother him.  He KNOWS he is powerful, eventhough he is a bit smaller than the rest!  HE IS AN AWESOME BOY!!

This is Eli on the right with his tooth barely hanging in there at top! LOL!  KayLee will be 7 on Mother's Day and Isaac just turned five last Wednesday... I guess you can see I have little kids, but aren't they the cutest??

I used this week's COLOR CHALLENGE at Picture Perfect Creations AND this week's Sketch Challenge from the SWEET STOP Sketch Blog {HERE} for my card today!!  WOW, what a shocker of a card, am I right?? That Melon Mambo IS eye-catching!! LOVE IT!  If you play along with this color challenge HERE, you will be entered to win this week's prize, as follows:
