Finally...A Card Picture

Okay, I have a couple of very dear friends that get on me ALL the time because I make a card or "BUNCHES" {is that really a word?} of cards and never post them.  So, being the good girl and friend that I am, here is one I created tonight!!!!

This started out with a pattern for a "onesie" baby shower invitation for our daughter-in-law's baby shower.  In my mind the image popped up for a dress!  So I had to 'create' before I forgot!  The colors are not good in this photo~~~I am not a photographer!  I also do not have a camera, so I had to borrow Daughter #3's camera.  I can't figure the silly think out, but I did the best I could.  The base is a retired blush color from Stampin' Up!  The designer paper is from K & Company (sorry SU!), and the ribbon is Crumb Cake seam binding from SU!
The dress has a long way to go, this is just a sample.  I scalloped the bottom and cut a scallop circle (both SU punches), and cut to fit the neck{yes, I promise and plan to get real circle punches so it will look better!)  Remember, this is only a sample!!!!  It will get better!  I plan on making some for a baby gift as "Thank You" cards.

These are only samples for invitations for the shower.  We will get paper that is themed with the baby's nursery.  I need a couple of examples so Daughter-in-law #3, (wife of Son #3) can do the shopping for materials.  I won't even try to give credit to paper and embellishments, because I'm old and can't remember where it came from!  The purple is SU! card stock, and I think it is Lavender Lace.

So, you two dearest friends, I DID IT!!!!!!  Are you proud of me?

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!

Graduation 2017 Post

Finally, here are pictures from Son #6 and Daughter #5's graduation.  I finally figured out what I was doing wrong downloading pictures!!

They Said "I Do" and Here We Grow Again!!

"I do!"  Lovely words.  Son #4 and Bride were married on the 31st of March.  After weeks of planning they are finally married and home from their honeymoon!  (pictures to follow soon)   We are pleased to have a new daughter in the family!

Speaking of new...yes, a new babe is growing...Daughter #1 and Son-in-love #1 are expecting their second child in the fall!  Grandson E told us!  At first we just looked at him, dead silence in the room, and looked at his momma...and she was smiling!  YAY!  Our "grand" total will be 11 come fall!!!!!!

Soon we will meet Granddaughter E...!  Eight weeks until her due date...but will probably meet her in the next few weeks!  Everyday in the womb is a day of victory!

That's all for now!  I have had to update this about 3 times!  It has been in my "save" for several weeks!  As soon as I get a few minutes of free time I will be back!
