We had a great time making 10 cards (5 cards 2 ea) that take 10 min each for $20.00! (plus 10 envelopes)
Here are the 5 cards we made. 2 of them were taken from coordinating inspiration sheets, the heartfelt thanks card in green is using the alternate colors suggested on the inspiration sheet, the happy for you card is from an inspiration sheet and the other 3 cards are ideas from stampin friends!
I have to share this statement because I agree with it 100%
Important note: We recognize and appreciate that the evangelical Christians who produced the DVD represent a small, fringe element within their denomination. Most Christians would, we are sure, join with the Latter-day Saints in condemning dishonest portrayals of other faiths, smear tactics, and religious bigotry.
OH MY ! That is all I can say about the misinformation on this link under oh my! I am truly shocked that this sort of thing continues and I have to ask myself- what is it they are afraid of? And why tell lies?
I am on my soapbox about this and will try to step down sometime today. I won't post about this again, but I felt the need to share my shock with all of you. As I am sure you feel, my religion is VERY important to me and as the paragraph above states:
"condemning dishonest portrayals of other faiths, smear tactics, and religious bigotry" JUST inflames me!
My step daughter Is having a baby boy and I wanted to make her a special card to put in her gift for her shower coming up and then it was so fun and easy I made a baby girl card so he wouldnt be alone!
I used our Spring mini designer papers and whisper white cardstock. I have had this template for years and always love using it.
Tops ladies will be here in a few min to walk and tonight is my 10-10-20 class and it is full!
The weather is finally cooperating so I am spending my time outside. Tonight I sorted all my seed packets as you will see in the photos. Some of them are saved from many years. Back to when I had my 2 acre organic market CSA garden. I know that I have stored them well and that I will still be able to use them, so I have sorted them into their catagories.
And my cow dog Tank decided he just had to join in the fun and have his photo taken, he posed and everything but the nut closed his eyes so I am sharing his photo also. Imagine one brown eye and one white eye and a smile! lol
I see that our wild dogwoods are budding out, the are so gorgeous in our subdivision and here on our property (we have 4.5 acres) I just wish they would bloom longer each year!
vegetable and herb seeds, some are sized bulk packets (note to self do NOT buy lettuce seed for the next 5 years!)
garbanzo bean seed and dill seed-
have you ever grown garbanzo beans? I was approached by a grower to join the co-op he was putting together to grow garbanzo beans in a high altitude 3 month growing season garden where I lived and he wanted them by the acre. I tried a patch 2 seasons and they were great easy to grow but then the divorce started and I never did join in the fun. And yes, that is one of my many longaberger baskets and this one is full of gardening things.
Isn't he just cute? his name is Tank- yes, he has a brother named dozer (belongs to my son Morgan) and his sister was named Rosie but I lost her several years ago.
Tank is a cow dog, his breeding is border collie, kelpy and mcnab. He has one white eye and one brown and he is my favorite friend in all the world. Tank is an outside dog, he absolutely HATES coming in the house and flat refuses altho when it's cold, he will go in the garage to his kennel. Tank is a pup (well he is about 8-9 yrs old now so he's no longer a pup) from our old cow dog Toby who was pure blood border collie with the white collar and everything. I always know when something "really" important is going on because that is the only time he barks.
It doesn't matter where outside I go, he is always there with me but never underfoot. I hope to one day find him a wife of the australian shepherd or border collie persuasion and have a new friend to continue the bloodline before it's to late. Do you see the red on his toes? That would be good old Missouri red clay mud and it matches the color in his fur- to funny!
Here are the seedlings I planted last week- starting to pop! (insert very excited tone here)
I put them outside today because of the warm 76 degree weather and I think with it so warm tonight I will just leave them out.
These are all flower and herb seedlings.
I have one area in the yard where I am trying to burn off the leaves under the trees so I can make it into a bird area- where I will have plants that birds love but the leaves are so wet from all the rains that they won't burn so that project is on hold for a few more days. We have a huge burn pile of the limbs from the ice storm in our main garden area and will be getting it burned next week so we can till the dirt and then start putting in our hand built raised beds.
Well enough of that - tomorrow I have to put together the 10-10- 20 cards for Friday night and Saturday classes because I have procrastinated as long as I can thanks to the great weather! lol
Thanks for stopping by and sharing my day with me.
I am so excited to share my news! I am a LOSER! I lost 2.25 lbs in the last 7 days on the TOPS program and I am thrilled~! And not only that but I am the biggest loser at our Tops meeting! It was so fun, they stood up clapped and then sang me a cute song! I hope to continue to be a loser!
I am busy running my daughter all over for spring break. I had Tops this morning, then lunch with my VT and into the mall for track shoes, dropped katie at practice and will go get her then take her to spend the night with a friend tonight so they can take the brother to the airport to leave for his mission. So tonight after leaving her at our friends home, I will come home take a 1 mile walk with my hubby eat supper and either crash or work on the 10-10-20 class I have on Friday night! So either tonight or tomorrow I will have a new project to show you!
Thanks for your patience, encouragement and emails! OH! I nearly forgot!!!
The blog is now over 22,000 views! WOW! I am thinking of something to do as a thank you and if you have any creative ideas, feel free to email them to me! Spring break has sucked the creative right out of my head! lol
One of the most wonderful experiences our youth can have, and today I will share this experience with my daughter for the first time together. She has been going since she was 12 and this is just the first time we have been able to go at the same time!
See other temples here. May your day be as wonderful as mine will!
Yesterday I drove my step son Kasey to Independence Mo to the LDS visitors center to meet up with his sister so he can spend the week of spring break with her in Omaha Nebraska. I had a lovely tour and felt the love of My Savior (my favorite feeling) and I also had a heart stopping moment.
I will relate it when I am back! NO KIDDING It literally made my heart stop I was so scared.
