Happily Ever After..

I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!  We had an incredible time in Pennsylvania visiting Pat's side of the family and celebrating his cousin Ryan's ordination as a deacon. This time next year he will be ordained as a priest. The mass was absolutely beautiful and it is amazing to watch Ryan's faith continue to go. He certainly is a gift to those he will serve.

We got back midday on Sunday so yesterday was a very laid back day. The kids are thrilled that we have a pool in our neighborhood and the added bonus is that it is only two doors down from our house.  I was down there with them for a bit and then came back to sneak in some crafty time. Over at Muse, we're celebrating Ardyth's 50th...and she is 50 and fabulous for sure!  So the challenge is to case one of her cards. This was oh so easy to do as I absolutely love her style. I'm regularly pinning her cards so I decided to create one of her cards she made last week. I loved her card! This card is going into the mail to my brother and his fiancee! They just got engaged on Friday so lots of celebrating to do around here!  Ardyth - you are a dear and I hope that your family spoiled you rotten. I'm so thankful for our friendship!  xx

  11. Lynn, this is a wonderful CASE of Ardyth's card. The flowers and vines are lovely, and the colors are gorgeously subtle. Congrats to your DH's cousin; how wonderful!!! One of my former Sunday school pupils just graduated from our Seminary, and is now a full-fledged Pastor!!! Where did that time go????!!! And you're so right, it's heart warming to watch faith grow. Hugs... Bev
