This first one is for Matt, the man from our church whose been working on our house. Since I'm 99.9% certain that he won't be reading my blog, I feel safe in posting it today even though it won't go out in the mail til later this afternoon. Why has he been working on our house? Because we decided to take it off the market and stay put until all of the kids are out of school - another 7 years! So in order to make life more comfortable while we wait for their respective graduations, we're doing a bit of remodeling. Stamp set is SU's Totally Tools.
This next one is for Bill, a friend, a semi-neighbor (he & his wife live 5 miles further up in the hills than we do), and he's the treasurer at our church. Being as I'm the bookkeeper, I work closely with Bill. This stamp set is from Cornish Heritage Farms, Primitive Blessings. I couldn't resist doing this for him, even though he's not an "old crow" per se! On the inside I put "Welcome Home!" (hehehe)
It's another gorgeous day today! My boys are hitting golf balls in our front yard (and will ride the dirt bikes later). My girls and I will go to my SU workshop this afternoon.
Have a great day everyone!

And today is her birthday! I wish I could say that her birthday card is a real eye-catcher. I wish I could say it came out just like I planned. I think the only thing that came out just like I imagined was the hinged part. The rest was, well, shall we say, "do overs" and "add to its!" But isn't that the beauty of creativity? What doesn't work on the intended side can either be covered up or added to, or even get a second chance for stardom on the reverse! And since she's the one who first introduced me (and alas, my checkbook) to the world of stamping, she understands about such things. The best part, she doesn't mind. "It's the thought that counts" is what she'd say because she's also a faithful friend.
The sun is shining, school is out for spring break which means she's off from work, so I hope Kim has a marvelous day of pampering and fun! And I hope she gets lots of cards from those who love her (and chocolate...because everyone needs chocolate on their birthday...and presents....because a birthday without presents is like paper with no ink)!!!
Happy Birthday Kim!

She also sent me some images to play with, 3 each of 2 designs.
Too bad I have plans for my evening -- take the kids to youth group, go to the gym, and then shop for flooring for my laundry room which is being renovated at the moment. I'd much rather be tucked away in my "special place" where only stamps, ink and paper have my undivided attention!
Thank you, Anne. I love my happy mail!

Here they all are, waiting to go!
Here's my son, Josiah. He was first after Josh.
And here's all the cards I made for my hubby to send to each of them for a job "Well done!" Obviously the 2 on the left are for the boys and the other 2 are for the girls!
Yes, I am one proud mom! I'm still beaming...
