     Mason is a sweet 3 year old boy who has endured a lot of medical problems from such a young age.  Here is the link  (http://thesearsfam.com/masons-riddle) where you can read about young Mason's life. It was recently updated by his mother, Dana. 

We are sending cards of encouragement to Mason and his family to uplift their spirits.
We are also having a challenge for this hop. I hope you can help us spread the love!

Well are you ready to play along? Here is my card for Mason.

 This is a card with a coloring page front that I found on google. I wanted Mason to be able to enjoy his card and add his artistic talent to it. His name was cut using the Cameo. It's a teacher font from my computer.

Happy Belated Valentine's Day

Hello My crafty friends!!

   I hope you had a fun filled Valentine, surrounded by all the people you love and care about. My Valentine was fabulous. Hubby had 1 beautiful red rose waiting for me on the table when I got home from work. It was so sweet. I love him! We ordered takeout and watched a movie. Midnight in Paris, I really enjoyed it. Then I went back to reality and planned for work and prepare for an observation I was going to have. Let's just say that I was extremely nervous for it and so where my students.

    Here are the Valentine's Day goodies I made for the teachers and staff at work.


Thanks so much for stopping by. Before I forget, This Saturday we are having a benefit Blog hop for lil Mason. Stop by and check it out! There will be tons of sponsors and a lot of great giveaways. I hope to see you all there.
