So happy!

Well, hello!
Where has the week gone?
Hope you are all doing well, and crafting like crazy!

Before I get started here, has anyone tried the new, improved Blogger? I keep getting a link pop up asking me to give it a try. NO WAY am I pushing that button until someone out there says it's okay!

I mentioned that I had some exciting news.....well here it is!

Monday was a very exciting day for DD.
If you follow my blog, you know that she moved out to Colorado on the 21st of August.
She's gotten settled in very nicely, taken care of the mundane things like drivers license, etc., and started her new job on Monday the 29th.
She had a good day on the job, and came home to beautiful red roses from her handsome man - LOTS of beautiful red roses! How sweet is that???
Well, dear friends, it gets better!
After dinner, this wonderful, handsome man, proposed to our beautiful daughter!
And...she said yes!
We are so excited for them!
They just glow when they are together, and they are always smiling.
We wish them as many blessings as DH and I have shared plus some!
She has some cute photos posted of her, Nick, and Rosie on her blog, if you want to sneak a peak!!!

On to my card for today! I needed a card for some neighbors who brought us up a wonderful basket of fresh eggs a few weeks ago. The eggs were so cute - several different colors! I just couldn't wait to ink up this new C.C. Designs Sweet Pixie, Country Lula for them. When I saw that the Wednesday Challenge at All That Scraps was a photo inspiration, I knew just what the color scheme would be. Hope she makes you smile!

Have a great day!
I'm off to see what all of you are up to!

Ohhh Patti! Congrats to Melissa, Nick, you and Stan! How exciting! I know she waited such a long time for this kind of happiness and they are truly blessed to have you and Stan there for them. Keep me up on their plans.

Oh yeah, your card (got so excited there totally forgot) what a cute card. Love the color combo and fresh eggs are the best with home grown tomatoes. Yum!

AWWW!!! Congrats to your daughter, and you AND the happy couple!! :) That is lovely!!!

Your card is really DARLING!! Your coloring looks fabulous hun!

P.S. I HAVE tried out the new is a bit weird at first to get use to...but I actually like it because the whole web page is filled when you create a post. You can also switch back to the old version at any time just in case you wanted to take a peek! :)

This is just wonderful Patti! I couldn't help myself...I went and subscribed to her blog. What a blessing!

Lorie said...

Oh, and I love your card, too! Oh,AND I tried the new blogger, actually didn't have a choice it was just there, and I couldn't get it to enter down for some reason. I could take my mouse and move the cursor down but it wouldn't let me enter down. Weirdness...other than that though it was fine. :)

Love your card, Patti. The little sweetie with her eggs in her basket and her pocket is so cute. Great colouring.
Thanks for sharing! :)

Oh, Patti, first many congratulations to your daughter!!! I remember when you were so sad about her leaving and now you've gotten this wonderful news!!! Feeling better now?!!! LOL!!!

Love your most adorable pink and blue card, and the inspirational photo is beautiful!!!

Patti, I'm like you when it comes to the new blogger... LOL!!! I WAIT!!! I've tried Bloggers "new" before and I had problems when others didn't, so I'll just wait a while until I'm certain they've gotten all the kinks out and see what's to it!

Hugs, my friend!
