Hello Again!

I tell you, life is so busy!  We have had revival at church for the last six evenings and the church 60th anniversary.  School is finally down to the last 7 days of instruction and 3 test days!!  I don't know if I should jump for joy, let out a big sigh, or cry.  Cry????  Yes, cry.  I like things to stay the same.  I am the one who cries as an old year passes and a new one comes in.  Cry when someone in the family has a birthday.  Oh well.....

Yay!!!!  Pictures to share of cards!!!!!!!  I had these on my phone.  I am not a "techy" person.  So getting these here has been a major accomplishment!

This one is using a retired set from SU!   I love this set!  Daughter-in-love #2 asked if I would make her a card for  her a card for a baby shower.

This card was created using the new Numbers of Years and Large Numbers Framelits Dies from SU.  As soon as I saw this set in the catalog I knew I had to have it! The front of this is a CASE from Pinterest.   I created this card for a friend who will not recognize her age! :)  Mean, I know!  She has been 29 for.........

....TWENTY-FIVE YEARS!  I really thought I should have bought her some silver instead of making a card.  I love the Timeless Textures set from SU.  I tried so hard to ignore it, but once I used it in Club I knew it would become a favorite....along with all my other favorites! :)

My Brother-in-love had a minor knee surgery.  So I grabbed my Gorgeous  Grunge set and this cute set from SAB.  This chick was also cute on Easter bags for the family!!

My pastor's wife had a hip replacement.  This was one of the cards I sent to her during her recuperation time. (Patty Bennett has a card similar to this on her blog.)   I sat on the fence with this set.  This was made using the Cups & Kettle Framlits from SU.  The stamp set that goes with this has become one of my "loves".

Ahhh......Son #2 just turned 30 this month.  I saw this idea on Pinterest.  Thought it was a great guy card!

Granddaughter A just turned eight!  I love the retired lined note book paper stamp.  I do not use it as often as I should.  The cupcakes make me hungry!!! 
Daughter #7 bought a Beta Fish.  His name is Prickly, because when his fins are fanned out the look like sharp barbs.  We tease her and tell her Tarter Sauce would be a good name!!!!!
Today we will celebrate Grandson K's birthday.  He is three!!!!  I borrowed this set, but think I will have to buy it!  The black dinosaur was stamped on Shrinky Dink.  Remember that!  Fun stuff!!!!!!  Any, I need to add a sentiment!
 (all the cards above were made this month!)
Thanks for being patient with my blog!  I will try to do better and get caught up with pictures! 


  1. You really need to open an Etsy shop and sell your cards. They are absolutely just beautiful! <3 :)
    Yaaay to buying the betta! Aren't they just so beautiful?

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!
