Are you the winner?

Wow, my mind is reeling from everything that’s been going on in the past week.   Today I am feeling especially patriotic in light of the news of Bin Laden.  I can’t help but wonder about the repercussions that will probably follow though.  I’m praying for God’s protection on all our troops and  I’ve issued myself a challenge.  I’ve decided that even though this is going to be a crazy busy week I’m going to try to crank out as many cards for OWH as I can.   The following was posted on the OWH Homefront Blog.

4,451 members of the American military in Iraq 
and 1,457 in Afghanistan have died to get this point.
Remember them and their families.
Remember the injured. And their families.
Remember those we lost on September 11th.
Remember those who are still fighting today.

I can’t do much otherwise, but I can make cards for our brave men & women to send home to their loved ones. 

I wish I could say I am headed out on a Disaster Relief Team to Alabama this week, but I have let my certification lapse, “Mom duties” and work took priority the past 4-5 years so I’m worthless there, but I will get my certification updated so I can be ready to go if/when needed in the future.  My thoughts and prayers continue to be with all those who were affected by last week's storms.

Enough of the HEAVY stuff for now.  I have a WINNER from the Disney/Pixar Hop, but I’ve got to say I feel like the real winner.  I can’t thank you all enough for choosing to follow me and for leaving such great comments.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading them all and I wish I could take the time to write each of you individually, but since I can’t, please just know that I appreciate each one of you.

When tallying the # of comments for Random # generator to pick from, I included the comments/votes on the Mickey & Minnie card I posted earlier last week.  Thanks to those of you who participated in this too.  Adding the “&” won, but one commenter --sorry I don’t remember who, had the best idea.  She chose option “c” and said make one version of each.  Since the cards are for OWH, I think she’s right!

One more thing & I’ll hush.  (It’s kinda hard to get anything productive done if I’m babbling on and on now isn’t it?)  I just want to ask you all to please try & stop by tomorrow for my Tuesday Tips post.   These are mostly tips FOR me FROM you.  The topic is going to be coloring stamped images but also about a new machine that I’ve just seen..... & no, it’s not the E2 I’m talking about.  I really have a lot of questions about both of these topics & want to know what you think/know.

OK the winner is Kim M. a new follower who said:
              Great card! Following your blog now.  I would head for Haunted Mansion - it's my favorite ride.

Miss Kim please send me an email with your address and also your choice of the blog candy options, and I will get it out to you ASAP.

I would like one of those you are not limited to how long you want a project for example if i wanted to make a 6ft banner i could. I would like to have one of those.
