Busy Inking

My days have been busy inking and stamping.  Most of what I have made I have pictures of....some I just plain forgot...sorry

Friends stopped by with some snacks for the kiddos, so
I created this card with a "grocery bag" on the front!

Played with the chick to make it look kind of like
a baby bird.  Maybe I should just stick to a chick!

Ah....The big day for Son #4 and his bride to be is
Friday, March 31!  Not really a traditional wedding card,
but it is kind of "them"!

A lot of time went into making this gift box!  It was for D #3's 22nd
birthday.  This year instead of trying to shop for the big kids,
I resorted back to gift cards.  Not my fave, but they get to do their
shopping on my dime!  (they have better taste than I do anyway!)

I really had no idea of what I wanted to do, I just knew that I
wanted to make a gift box.  So, I ended up spending 2 hours making it!
But it was fun to play!!!!
This is another one of my favorite sets to play with.  It is
so versatile.  This was another one I found on Pinterest and put
my own "twist" on it.
I created this for our Youth Pastor's wife's baby shower.
I made it to resemble the invitations that were sent out.
This is the cover to a notebook I made.  Sorry I forgot to turn it
upright!  This was a fun project also! 

I used a scrap paper for t he flowers and box band.
I saw a card on Pinterest and just had to re-create it with my
twist.  Loving the Stampin' Up! water color pencils!  The cards
look like Easter eggs, but that was not my intent. 
Love this set!  It is the first set I reach for when
wanting to make a card. 
Too much fun!  I am really loving the watercolor
pencils and paper!

D #7's fish, Prickly, had celebrated his one year birthday from date of purchase.
Had to make him a birthday banner!

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! ;)
