Prayer Request

Update: July 28th
Well, We have had a few ups and downs the last day or 2. On Sunday afternoon, a few things happened with my Mom. After a CT Scan and Brain MRI it was confirmed this morning by the neurologist...That she had a stroke. She is doing much better now. Thank You all for you prayers.

GREAT NEWS!! After a long procedure...I am over joyed to report that all the bad things that the other tests showed, ARE GONE IN JESUS NAME!!! The doc was amazed to find NOTHING!!!!!!!!! Her heart looked good and the blockage was gone!!! Prayer is so powerful and God is GREAT!!! Thank You Mighty Friends for your prayers....God answered them!!!!! Praise you Jesus!!! I must say that I was touched when I saw all of your comments! WOW, To be brought tears to my eyes and made my heart smile!!! I am amazed at the out pouring of love and prayers!! You all are so special to me!! Thank You from the bottom of my heart!!!

My Mom hasn't been feeling well and has been admitted into the hospital for a suspected blockage in her heart. I am asking you all to pray for her as in the morning they will do a heart cath to see if Open Heart Surgery is needed!! God is Big and I will cast all my cares upon him!!!

This is My Mommy...
Thanks so much!!

Hugs and Blessings, LORI

TPE- #24 Animals

Hi Everyone!! I have been a bit under the weather the past week and a half, but feeling a bit better now!! So sorry for the delay in today's The Pink Elephant post...I was lucky to get TPE's post up as I have had blogger problems too!!

This week at The Pink Elephant the theme is:


Which means make any project you want using an Animal or Animals!

Our Wonderful sponsor this week is the one and only,

Dustin Pike
You can win some of his awesome designs simply by joining TPE challenge this week!!!

Here are my cards:

SU! card Stock: Ballet Blue, Brilliant Blue, Real Red, Bashful Blue, Pixie Pink, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White and Buckaroo Blue, Soft Sky
Stamps: Dustin Pike Digi Stamps
I colored with:
SU! Marvelous Markers, SU! Ink Pad and Blender pen
I Added:
SU! Kiwi Kiss Corduroy Brads, SU! Kiwi Kiss Ribbon and Liquid Applique

I also have the cupcake digi, but noticed that several of the other design team members chose that one too so I used "SUPER DRAGON"

Landon absolutely loved this image and fully believes that Dustin designed it just for him.
He made is very own card, all by himself from start to finish with only a few questions!! I was surprised at how he knew what all my supplies were used for & how to use them...I guess my little ones watch me closer than I thought.

Here is his card.

He HAD to photograph the card himself, so I let him....
Then, He directed the rest of the "photo shoot". He said, "Mommy, take one of me getting excited about my card" "Ok, good", he said...
"Now take one with my scooter and me and my card."
Then, when the "photo shoot" was over and I had re-entered the house...I looked back out onto the porch and saw this!! Too sweet!!

He saw me and said, "Mommy, I love my card. I am gonna put it by my bed."
And up the stairs he went!!
