Hello Again!

Ha!  Just finished a card and had a few moments to share it with you!  I have a friend at church who was having a knee replacement surgery today.  Very sweet lady!  She taught my two oldest boys in the second grade when they were in the Christian school many years ago!  (today they are 30 and 31!)  Anyway, I wanted to get a card off the her.

Using Pinterest, I CASE-d this from a card that Lisa Young, Add Ink and Stamp, created using the set from  Sale-A-Bration 2015 called Honeycomb Happiness.  Love the chick!  You can make it almost any baby bird!  I used my Aqua Painter and ink pad to water color the images.  I was out of the water color paper that Stampin' Up! carries so I used what I had on hand.  Not so thrilled with the paper.  I layered it on black and my base is retired cardstock with confetti sprinkles.

This is Daughter #7.  She was studying for a history quiz for tomorrow, but took a second out of her precious study time to pose for a picture!

This month seems to be moving along a bit too quickly for me.  Maybe it is because of the amount of things I need to accomplish in so little of a time.  For instance, the family has been wanting to put up the Christmas tree since Thanksgiving.  It just got put up on Friday, the ninth.  Not only was it late getting up, but it is not our usual 7 foot tree.  This year we have a 4 foot tree up on a table.  It has been renamed from our Christmas tree to our "Humble Tree".  Humble indeed.  The base is missing.  Son #4 and I had to create a base for it.  It was firm until the ornaments started going if you tilt your head to the left it looks like you are tilting your head to the left to look at a leaning…
