Just Chicken In

Good Morning! The weekend is just about here and warmer temperatures.  Doesn't that just sound wonderful.  This past weekend was an emotional one for us as a family. We were asked as a family to attend our Millet Firefighters night.  It was a great time with laughter, visiting, tears and a chest filled up with pride. Our middle son Robin was honored by our Firefighters, our Town and by the House of Commons for saving his sisters life and my life last October. It was so over whelming and truly it was hard to hear someone actually tell the store of our accident.  The tears flowed for all of us as we saw a Hall full of people stand to give our son respect and honor him for his heroism. They stood the whole time he was up there, until he sat down. Another moment to truly cherish as our family would not be whole if it wasn't for him. Onto why you really popped in

I have a new DT card for you today! It is Thursday so that means that 4 Crafty Chicks has a new challenge and a new hostess.  Our challenge is being brought to you by Leanne and she would like us to make a Shape (no rectangles or square cards) card for Challenge #184.  Oh boy was this a challenge since I have never made a shape card on my own.

The card below was super fun to make.  The image is made by From The Heart Stamps called Flower Pot Chick (Birdbrain).  The sentiment inside the card reads Just Chicken In...don't ya just love it?  These stamps are just simple so cute!
