Cards!!!!

I was able to pass some free time with making a few cards over the last couple of weeks.

Hmm, I remember making this, but cannot remember
who I made it for!  The stamp images are Stampin' Up! along
with most of the paper.

A couple of stamping buddies came over a couple
of weeks ago.  We used this set from the Sale-a-Bration
catalog.  Everything is SU!.  The water coloring on the
bird was with the water color crayons SU! use to carry.
I made this for my card ministry.  I only needed 58 of these!
 It is based off a card I made in card club a couple of years ago.
I changed it up a bit so I could use my Post Card stamp and used
the colors I had on hand.

This card was made for Son #7's 12th birthday.
I really debated what to make for him.  No longer
a man, not quite a boy...but balloons just plan say
"CELEBRATE!"  This card was made with SU! product.
The green I believe is a retired color.

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! ;)
