Getting Ready for 16th Birthday!

Happy Sunday!  Well I got up this morning feeling good and got ready for church, then sinus mayhem.  I hate getting sick, I know no one likes it.  Unfortunately for me it is something that happens quiet a lot for me.

I can not believe that my baby is turning 16 Saturday.  Time has went by so fast.  I only have two years left for homeschooling with him.  It has been the best job I have ever had.  This past year he has made it super simple.  I have his lesson planned out for the entire month and he goes off and does what he can and comes to me for help (which hasn't been very often).  He did Algebra his Freshman year, and he did really good with that, but I thought he needed a more real life so he is now doing recording keeping.

Okay now for the reason I really started this post.....

I really liked how these turned out.  I used a past Paper Pumpkin' Kit "Cute Conversations" (you must have a Paper Pumpkin Subscription sign up here.  Don't forget the 3 months for $55 will be ending at the end of this month.)

and "Happy Birthday, Everyone"  (this stamp set is for Hostesses, so you can even host an online gathering!)

I used twine from my stash,  now looking at the package I feel silly.  Why didn't I just use the white and mint baker's twine and clothes pins?  Oh wait that would have been too smart! LOL.

Let me know if you want to set up an online gathering and I will get that started for you.

Thanks for stopping by!

Thank You Card

A sweet couple from church gave us their microwave after they remodeled their kitchen, so I made them a card to show my appreciation.

I used Stampin Up! Sleigh Ride Edgelits   (which is no longer available :( but there is a bunch of framelits still available) and glued the cut out part to the inside of the card.  The "Thank You" is from Paper Pumpkin' February 2016.  This was just a simple A2 card.  I also used the Big Shot Die Brush.

So my allergies and sinuses have gotten better, to be replaced by my arthritis in both knees hurting so badly that I am having a hard time walking and since my Creative Studio is downstairs I can not do any crafting right now.  It is time to get back to the Chiropractor for acupuncture.  I can not wait until the weather gets better here!
