Hello Everyone!  HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO!!! This week my children wrapped up their AWANA program. Two of my gremlins earned an award and my other gremlin finished his book at another church right before we moved to our new church. He did earn an award, however due to the change in our church, he didn't get one except the congratulations, a job well done from me.

 I am so proud of my children. They have worked hard this school year and did a lot of memorizing God's Word. The best part of all for me, as Mother's Day nears is the joy of having them share my life with me. I know I may complain and whine about my children, but they really and truly are one of the BEST parts of my life. I love to tease them, snuggle with them, and smooch on them.

Anyways, this week, the Technique Junkie Newsletter is sponsoring the Gingersnap Creations Challenge Blog! The theme this week is Cowboys and Cowgirls and we would LOVE to have you join us in the challenge!

Here is some information about my card.... Regretfully, I do not have a lot of Cowboy and Cowgirls, so I had to combine several sets to fit this challenge! :)

Your children sound like gems. I miss my kids being young and suffered when I became an empty-nester.

Your card is terrific. I don't have any cowboy images so thankfully there are digi companies to turn too. My next week's is all about cuteness.

You certainly came up with a gorgeous western-themed art piece, Chrissy. The color selection is beautiful! Great card! Hugs, Gayle.
