DS4J Challenge #83

Hello friends.  Thanks for stopping by today.   2014 was supposed to be a great year.  Yeah, not so much.  Tim is still very sick.  I took him to the doctor on Thursday.  He was diagnosed with borderline pneumonia.  3 days later and 3 prescriptions later and he is worse.  I am calling the doctor tomorrow morning to see what our next step is.  Kierstynne has a horrible seal bark cough.  It's all in her chest.  I have to make her an appointment.  I feel ok.  I have a cough, but nothing like those two.  My FIL was admitted to the hospital today with pneumonia.  He got sick after Tim and went down hill really quick.  One of his lungs is completely full.  He has to have another chest x-ray in a week because they think he may have a touch of COPD from all his years of smoking. He quit in 1999 but I guess the damage is catching up with him.  So, for those of you who believe in the power of prayer, please lift our family up.  We need all the prayers we can get.  OK, my venting is done. Let's see what kind of eye candy we have today. :)

I used Marie Antoinette Misteri to create this card for the new DS4J Glitter and Sparkle challenge.  I love the way this one turned out.  I am just starting to make cards with the elements that hang off the side.  With my OCD, it's hard for me to do that. But, I'm trying.

Thank you again for stopping by today.  I truly appreciate it.  I hope y'all have a great day and God bless.
