Moxie Fab- Plum Crazy Challenge

Hey everyone! Well if you read my last post, you read that my best friend got a call, to get a 3 day old baby boy! We are still praying for them and the adoption part, I believe it might still be a long road, but the baby is BEAUTIFUL! He has some health issues right now, but with lots of prayer and some medicine he's taking right now, I believe he is going to do great! We went over to see the a baby today and it is so nice to hold a sweet little baby! They had just given him a sponge bath and they gave him a "faux halk", it was adorable! :) I would love to share some pics, but I can't do that right now, because of the adoption process! But take my word for it, he is BEAUTIFUL! My son Chace told us on the way home, that when got older, he wanted a baby that was just like that! Isn't that sweet! :)
On some crafty talk, I was so excited to find out that "M", Savitri's daughter picked my card in the spotlight this week ! Thanks "M"!
I also made a card for the Challenge over at Moxie Fab, to use the color Plum! Well that wasn't hard for me because I love the color plum! You can see in one of the picks, where I am holding the card, I have a plum colored shirt on! I have been seeing these flowers a couple of places on the web, and then my good blog friend Courtney, made a video tutorial on how to make them! Thanks Courtney! :) So here is my plum card and I think it's "plum cute"! :) And don't forget about "The Everything But The Kitchen Sink Challenge"!Supplies:
Cardstock- (PTI) plum pudding, ripe avocado
Stamps- (PTI) polka dot basics II, mega mixed messages
Ink- (VersaMark) watermark, (VersaMagic) wheat
Fabric- Hobby Lobby

Have a Blessed Day!

Oh! I forgot to tell you to check out this post on my blog... http://jinnynewlin.blogspot.com/2009/11/new-heartland.html. I made the same flowers but without the buttons and with ribbon leaves. I think it shows them off a little better.
