Go Away Irene it's Pink Saturday!

Happy Pink Saturday!
I didn't have time this week for creating and I'm fresh out of pictures of pink things. But I enjoy Pink Saturday too much not to participate. My post today will be the Pink Saturday button. Please click on it to visit our sweet hostess Beverly at "How Sweet The Sound." Say hello to her and then try to visit some of the other P.S. participants.
If you scroll through some of my older posts you may find some creative inspiration. Have a wonderful day.
I'm thinking about and praying for all of us in Hurricane Irene's path this weekend. Stay safe!

Tag Tuesday, Pink Saturday and Happy Birthday~ August 20th

My "Rose" tag was inspired by Rebecca at the Blog Challenge Garden. The theme this week is to use a vintage photo. My tag shape and the vintage photo are from Dezinaworld.

I also took some pictures of our Rose Of Sharon bush. I altered one of the shots with digital filters and digital stamps to create a "rose" background for my tag staging photo. Perfect for a Pink  Saturday post too. Please hop on over to visit Beverly at How Sweet The Sound.

Bee Careful!

Today is my DH's birthday. We are delighted and grateful to God that he is home and recovering from his surgery. Thank you for all your prayers. He will begin radiation and chemotherapy treatments in a few weeks.

Before you leave I want to share our personal blessing with you. At times I'm baffled about coincidences and the timing of life events.  My husband has had a brain tumor for well over ten years. Recently we were told there is a change in the tumor. On Wednesday, August 10 he had surgery for a biopsy and debulking of a brain mass. You may be thinking, "How is that a blessing?" It is a blessing because the surgery went well and he was taken out of ICU to a regular hospital room Thursday afternoon. He may be coming home Saturday! It will take a while until the final pathology reports come back. We know it is a high grade tumor but we are hopeful that it will respond to radiation and chemotherapy treatments.

T.T. P.S.F.F. Oops!

Oops! I really didn't want to plant a giant Zinnia in this pot. I actually didn't even know Zinnias grew this tall. The flower was so pretty.
