My Daughter and Fishin' Buddies

Hi, y'all!  I hope each of you has been blessed this week!  I certainly have!  First, I'd like to say that I am so proud of my daughter!  She is my youngest of three, at 29, and is going through a divorce.  She's never been one that would listen to us about religion of any type - she used to say, "I don't want to hear that God stuff."  She saw the movie, Fireproof, last weekend, and has started working in the 40-day book.  She's been asking my husband and I questions, and she has talked to a minister as part of marriage councelling.  Her dad was baptized several weeks ago, and she attended our church for that ceremony.  She left right after he was finished, about 1/2 way through the service.  She's always been adamant about not believing in God, so this has taken us quite by surprise!  She's been reading an online bible, and has asked if she can join us at church tomorrow!  Hallelujah!  Maybe having the baby has made a difference!  He turns one next Wednesday!
Fishin' Buddies - Using the last two digi-stamps I won from Whimsy Stamps, I made a fourth card for them as a guest designer.  I was so excited, and it was a lot of fun doing them.  This last card is a generic, best wishes-type card, or "Best Fishes" I should say!  Moose has caught a large fish, but the line is tangled in some of the tall grass alongside the dock.  Beaver just casually stands there, not worried because Moose will land it!  They are visited by a frog, a bee, and there are cattails in the grass, too!  They even feel like them, because there is brown flocking on them.  The "Got Fish?" banner has been embossed with fish scales!  I got carried away again with all the little details, but that's what I love to do!  Best "Fishes" to all of you this weekend and for the coming week!  I will have internet access while on vacation, so please drop me a line, and tell me what you've been up to!  Until next time...
