Pray for my family please

I just wanted to let you all know what has been going on in my family and ask for prayers please.
My son's girlfriend started having seizures on Sunday Nov.24th due to Eclampsia, she had to have an emergency c-section and delivered my grandaughter 11 weeks early. Emma Jade weighed 2lbs 3oz and is 13 3/4 inches long at birth. Emma was transported to another hospital and is in the NICU. Michelle is at another hospital 45 minutes away from Emma. Michelle was just moved from ICU to a regular hospital room. Please pray that Michelle's dr's can get the right medication for her so she can be released from the hospital to go see her daughter. Emma is doing very well and is completley off of oxygen now. i appreciate all of your prayers.
Here are some pictures of my sweet Emma, my son Tyler and Michelle

Sad week

Hi all,
This week has been very rough for my family. We found out my Mother-in-law's Cancer is back, my Grandmother had her leg amputated and the Dr. thinks my sweet Hailie has Narcolepsy. When it rains it pours I guess.
Please say a special prayer for our family. Thank you all so much.

Lindy's Stamp Gang July Color Challenge & DT Entry

Hello Beautiful People,
Today I am here with my entry into the Lindy's Stamp Gang July Color Challenge and also my entry into thier 2013 Design Team Call.
I created a 6x6 Canvas using these fabulous Lindy's products:
Tiffany's Blue Starburst Spray
Rudolph Red Nose Starburst Spray
Frozen Jack Frost Starburst Spray
Sea Grass Green Starburst Spray
I also used gesso to prime my canvas and a stencil of flowers and vines with some modeling paste that I added Frozen Jack Frost to. I love the way the Canvas turned out. I really had so much fun creating a tye dye effect to it. I also used some Wild Orchid Crafts Flowernd sprayed some of them with the Tiffany's Blue and Rudolph's Red Nose.
I hope you all like what I created.   Wish me luck!!  Here is the link to the Lindy's Stamp Gang Challenge Blog Post:  www.lindystampgang.wordpress.com
