March Madness

....No, this has nothing to do with basketball.  It does however have to do when the "ball is in my court".  Let me explain.....

One of my favorite blogs is Deep Roots at Home.  Jacqueline is such a blessing.  I have met and talked with her at the home school convention we have attended in the recent years.  You feel like you have shared an afternoon and a cup of tea with her after talking for only a few minutes. 

While reading  Jacqueline's blog today, her post from February 27 was amazing.  I have read the short story she has posted some time ago.  It brought back to mind what I need to do when "the ball is in my court".

You see, the last several months plus have been weary.  We have had some major set backs.  Set backs that only God could take care of for us.  Most were never mentioned outside the family.  Some we needed direction and we asked questions.  A couple were shared only with someone close; one shared as a prayer request.  ALL taken to the throne …

Card Creations

...sigh...I have been busy making cards off and on.  I am getting better at taking pictures, just slow at blogging them.  I am suppose to be cleaning house...going to meet our daughter-in-love-to-be's mom this afternoon/evening.  Me...I addressed a few cards to college students...okay...12 of them.  Okay, I was writing a note to them!  Then I decided I wanted to learn how to knit...so I watched a video on YouTube and tried for about 20 minutes...got frustrated and gave up...only for the day!

Now, I decided that I may want to take a few minutes and post some cards.  So this will be quick...sort of...

MERRY CHRISTMAS 2016

MERRY CHRISTMASFROM OUR FAMILYTO YOURS!!!!



Hello Again!

Ha!  Just finished a card and had a few moments to share it with you!  I have a friend at church who was having a knee replacement surgery today.  Very sweet lady!  She taught my two oldest boys in the second grade when they were in the Christian school many years ago!  (today they are 30 and 31!)  Anyway, I wanted to get a card off the her.

Using Pinterest, I CASE-d this from a card that Lisa Young, Add Ink and Stamp, created using the set from  Sale-A-Bration 2015 called Honeycomb Happiness.  Love the chick!  You can make it almost any baby bird!  I used my Aqua Painter and ink pad to water color the images.  I was out of the water color paper that Stampin' Up! carries so I used what I had on hand.  Not so thrilled with the paper.  I layered it on black and my base is retired cardstock with confetti sprinkles.




This is Daughter #7.  She was studying for a history quiz for tomorrow, but took a second out of her precious study time to pose for a picture!
