July 2016 Happenings

We  are just a little less than two weeks from starting school.  There is still so much to get done, but I think I may have the problem worked out to getting some promised pictures posted!

I will save family happenings for another time, but wanted to share some cards!

I think I may have shared this one of Son #7 birthday.
Grandson E recently had a fish that died.  He
was a little upset, so I made him a sympathy card.
I love this jars set!!!!  One of my favorites!

This card was made for a man who is in a nursing home.
This card and the one below were an idea that
I had seen on a blog header.  I knew I did not
have the set, so I went searching through retired
sets to create one that was similar.

This was for a friend at church.
This uses a new set from Stampin' Up! in the new
catalog. The sentiment is a retired hostess set.
 I used it for my card ministry this month.
I thought it was fitting for the season. 
Father's Day Card.  The boots and hat are
a retired set, but one of my favorites.
I did these two cards for some college kids from church.
I actually made two of each.  Two are at serving at camps
and two are working at the college they will be attending this fall.
I have a few pictures on my phone but I still am having trouble getting them to download to the computer.  Only a handful have downloaded and my cards are not on them! :(


  1. I really enjoy being able to go back and view your card designs again (lots of "pretties" to be inspired by).

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!



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! ;)
