Bunny Card

Okay, I have a few friends that ALWAYS get onto me for not taking pictures of my cards and posting them.  I use Daughter #2 to do that for me, but sometimes I don't like to bother her, although for the record she is more than happy to do it for me.  But...she will be leaving for college in September, so I need to become a big girl and do it myself.  So I did! {with her camera}

These are the first two I made. 
They are for two of my grandsons, yes, I know...flowers on one of them? 
Hey, they're cute!


And, here are the next three I made for my other two grandsons and yes,
the one in the middle WITH flowers for my granddaughter!


I was searching splitcoaststampers.com, and came across this adorable bunny.
I used the tutorial http://randomonpurpose.typepad.com/r...y-bunnies.html.  As you can see
I changed it up to make it more "me".  I added the scalloped oval punch to the ears, giving the ears three layers.

I did not realize how "tall" the bunny ears were until I got them put together!  So, I had to come up with a new plan to get Bunny on the card and use the invitation size envelopes I have on hand.  In the end, it did not matter, because I sent each set in a bigger envelope so the cards all arrived on the same day!

I have made at least three more cards since, and I am sticking to the "portrait" card lay-out.   They are a bit time consuming, but so worth the effort!  {I did notice postage was a bit more than I expected.  The postal worker went to slip it through the "little" slot they use when measuring something bulky, and it did not go through...that might be because it has 3 or 4 pop-dots and the tied ribbon.}

[the cards were made using Stampin' Up! punches, cardstock, designer paper, brads {except the heart shaped one}, and inks]

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.



Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!







MERRY CHRISTMAS 2016

MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM OUR FAMILY TO YOURS!!!!



Life on the Homestead

Life is keeping us busy.  We have had grans over, a couple family dinners, running teens to friends homes or a church activity. We are helping out a family friend who fell and broke a wrist. Now summer is in full swing and warm and humid!  The air conditioner has been doing its best to keep the home comfortable.

Next week our school age kiddos will be leaving for church camp.   That leaves us with the three adult children who still live at home.  This will be a first for us!

This week we have welcomed two, new to us, vehicles and next week two new licensed drivers....

Well.....I have been trying to get some pictures to upload but am not succeeding! Eeerrrrrr!  I will try again later, when I am not so frustrated!  I will try to keep calm and carry on! ;)
