A Typical Monday?

My head was aching.

The kid almost missed the bus - we were gabbing and not paying any attention to the time....

The EK was late....that is the "Extra Kid", as in Eric, the one I watch while his mama and daddy work. 

The mama was in a tizzy, so I (of course) asked what was wrong....ends up she was stressing about having not made dessert for a co-worker's dinner.  Said co-worker is having a tough time because her son was in a major car accident and still is in the hospital.  My friend and the rest of her co-workers in this class decided to make dinner for their friend, but mama pulled a double yesterday and didn't get a chance to get dessert done.  I whipped up a batch of triple chocolate brownies and will take them up to the school in just a bit...

While they were baking, I decided that a card to go along with dinner would probably be appreciated too.  SO, I whipped one of those up too...


The image is from Designed2Delight and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up.  Ink by CTMH and paper was a giftie from my friend Sheena as a prize from one of her swaps.  The ribbon was from the Dollar Tree, the metal dot from Wal-Mart and of course, I colored with my Copics.

Sorry, no picture of the brownies....LOL

Thanks for looking, I'm sure prayers would be appreciated for this family....

Huggz,
April
