THT026, WT247, A Day Filled With Love!

This morning at 9:30, our family increased by DD and DSIL adopted an eight year old boy, a brother for their 9 yr. old son and 12 yr. old daughter. The personal and legal ceremony took place in court, and the judge was wonderful! At the end, everyone took pictures of the family with the judge, and each other. The Bailiff even took pics. Then the judge gave our new DGS a special light up pen (which he flipped over), lollipops, a game, and some baseballs. How cool! Afterwards, we went to our DD's for brunch. So happy an occasion, and so much love!!

That's why I had to make a RED card celebration. This one is a case of Cathleen (ctorina) here :, for the THT026 challenge. I reversed the colors, and exchanged the sleigh for a dove. I hope you (and she) like it! This also works for the WT today, and for the RedDivas gallery. This has been a wonderful day, and it continues, as DH has gone to get our 10 yr. old to stay with us for dinner and until his Mom can get him at 8 tonight. Mom has parent meetings all day, and DS is in the play with his students - tonight is the dress rehearsal). We are so lucky!!!

On the left is the picture Lori chose for our Inspiration Challenge this time. It comes from Garnet Hill. There are wonderful mugs for hot cocoa, tea, coffee, latte, whatever anyone would love to warm up on a cold winter night!

I chose to work with the colors in making my card for the Divine Divas. The bg is the dotted blue and white, and the mug is a wonderful new Cloud Nine dp that my mother found, and brought to me. I added marshmallows, because that's the best part of hot cocoa, right??

I love the sentiment that was on one of the mugs, Let It Snow. I HATE snow, and dislike it more the older I get, but it sure was just right to fit on the punches for my card. I prefer, Eat Drink and be Merry, but I didn't happen to have those words. Gotta go with what ya got!!

I hope you will join us this week, and that you look at the cards of the DT on the sidebar of my blog. If you should participate, please put DDIC in your keyword, and check in with us again in two weeks.
