God Bless You



Happy Sunday my friends. Yesterday morning started with some crafty time and ended with a robotics competition for Jonathon.  The weekend has been extra nice as Ryan is home visiting for the weekend.  We had a game of Risk on Friday night and the boys all enjoyed playing pool together last night too. I love having everyone back home.   This week was also awesome as we closed on my mum's old house...so we are now back to only owning one home.  Can you hear the celebration happening?!  And have I told you what a rock star my hubby is on getting everything out of my mum's house and working through the inspection etc.?  Well he is awesome!

Ryan and Jonathon at Jonathon's robotics competition...Ryan was trying to stretch to be taller...didn't quite happen!

But back to why you are here...a card :)  When I saw the Inspired by All the Little Things blog I knew exactly what I wanted to make and it translated directly to my card...quickly!  This card features all Frantic Stamper dies.  I know I'll be using those stitched bloom dies a lot.  This card was popped in the mail today to a friend whose grandson has a brain tumor. Thankfully they are pretty sure it is benign but he has surgery on Monday so we're saying lots of prayers for sweet little Jack.

  3. First the card: I had an immediate idea too, Lynn, and yours is similar to mine. I hope mine comes out as beautifully. Second: Yay for closing on the house. I know the stress of cleaning out and preparing for sale so kudos for your husband for handling it all. Third: My granddaughter is in robotics but I've never been to a competition. It sounds like a lot of fun. and last: Risk? Really? I remember my brother was obsessed with that game when my kids were younger and my youngest is the only one he could get to play with him because it took so long. But then you'd have to know my brother. ;)

  13. What a beautiful card Inspired By All the Little Things! The die is gorgeous! Isn't it funny that the younger brother is taller than the older brother. Both handsome boys, hope the robotics competition went well, I love seeing that Ryan is supporting him!

    My DH is the Taller "baby brother" in his family! Funny how birth order does not determine height:)
