Janis, I adore the red cardstock you used as a background here! I think that red is my fave colour this week! Great job, and I also adore that owl!

Thank you all for the wonderful job you are doing as Designers here at S:CY! I could not ASK for a better or more talented Design Team! You always make me so proud.

To end this post, I have a special request. A member of our Design Team Family, Helen Hollinger, is away in Alberta right now with her Mom and StepDad. Her StepDad has had bad news and is ill with a recurrence of throat cancer. The family needs your prayers. Helen is an RN, and as an RN myself, I know that she will be working extra hard to advocate for her DSF at the hospital and help her Mom & family as they work through all of this, make decisions and go through any treatments.

They will need extra prayers and good thoughts-- may I ask for them for her and her family, please? I asked her permission to ask you all this and she told me that ALL prayers and good thoughts were much appreciated. Thank You so much.

Helen will be away for a little while- likely at least until the 2nd week of December. Thanks gals...

And get ready for the post on December 1st: We have a very special contest coming!! Be sure to mark your calendars...some wonderful folks are involved and I guarantee it will be a blast! See you here at S:CY!
