 Card is 6x6

Did your mother ever tell you there would be days like this?  I grew up with 4 brothers and 1 sister. I think  there were many times my mother about lost her mind with us 6 kids.  
 I've seen this stamp image in cyberspace a number of times. It's one of those gotta have it stamps! Isn't Charlotte adorable !?! I used my light box this time  with daylight bulbs to photograph the card. I think it turned out  much brighter than it use to.
Anyhoo, we  have my son in-laws birthday  party tomorrow afternoon. Mark turns 35. He wanted dumbbell weights for his BD. We got him the 5 -10 lbs. His mom/dad got him the 20lbs.  I'm wrapping one weight  and keeping the rest in the back of the van. : )  We're meeting at  a park, frying out, and we get to visit with Mark's family as well. Sweet family!!  The weekend weather is suppose to be beautiful! We also want to put our pool up. Kids are happy about that!
Well I hope you all have a great weekend! Hope you get to do something fun!
Thanks for stopping by!

Meghan's 1st Ballet Recital

This last Saturday morning  my granddaughter Meghan had her 1st Ballet Recital. She did so good, we were so proud of her!! They asked us not to take any  still flash photos of the little girls durning their performance because it might throw them off.
The song they danced to was called.. "I need a nap" It was precious! Meghan will be 4 in June. Most of these photos my daughter took at Meghan's dress  rehearsal the Thursday before. The pic of Meghan & Cailyn was taken after the recital. Cailyn had a little red tutu and ruby red shoes.... Sweet!!! 

This was at the end of the performance when all the girls came out to take a bow. I snapped this quick shot. Considering we were pretty far away, the zoom turned out quite nicely i think.
Some of you who visit my Korner might be grandparents. Well, we have bragging rights too!  : ) I hope you enjoyed seeing my sweet  granddaughter's. We love them so much!

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm not sure if I like this card or not?   I was headed in a different direction with it. It didn't come out that way. Oh well, an after thought... adding some eyelets at each end of the curly cord.

Wedding Card and.....

Products Used~ CTMH C S, Cricut Cartridge ~ Wild Card, {paper pieced the dress} CM Corner Punch, Foam Dots, Black Matted cs  on back of white card base.  Stamped  "Congrats" on the inside.

What a difference a week makes.... Refreshing!!  It was a nice break from blogging, but i have to admit there wasn't a day that went by that I didn't think of you all that have faithfully visited my Korner.  I didn't  go on Google Reader at all. I knew if i did that, that would be the end of it. Sooo, I'm glad to be back, now I have some catching up to do!
I have no one to give this wedding card to at present, but I did want to try out the  "Wild Card"  Cricut Cartridge again. I love this silhouette wedding couple. I can't get over ALL the different things you can make with this one cartridge.

I hope you all had a nice Mother's Day. Mine was great with my kids and grand babies! I got flowers from Charlie and the boys. Mark & Christyl gave me a gift card for Hobby Lobby. : )

Charlie fryed out. We were all going to eat out on the patio but it was too cold for the grand kids. 50's was just a little too chilly. Anyway, here is our round patio set we have had for the last 11 years. My in~laws bought it for us as a house warming gift. We keep it in the basement over the winters so it really doesn't see hard weather. { I need to paint the door}
Well that's about it for me today. Sam is home sick. He was up most of the early morning throwing up. He seems much better right now.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Hitting the pause button.....

 I'm feeling a little overwhelmed these days  needing to sort things out in my head & heart. Honestly I'm ok, excited... but yet  mentally/spiritually preparing myself for my Missions Trip mid July. I was at the Global Expeditions website not to long ago looking at pictures from last years missions trip, someone had posted a picture that will forever stick in my head/heart. An older women going through the dump, looking for whatever she could find that was worth something. Whether it was food or material.
I've seen the Newsboys Video numerous times. I'm wanting to bring the kids.... some Love,, flip flops, candy and some kites. My rep and  I chat with every few weeks. He said the kids love candy. They'll follow you if they know you have some.
I know a while back some of you  were interested in an update as to how my missions trip was coming along. I have pretty much all my ducks in a row. I had to apply for a new Birth Certificate because I didn't have a raised seal on mine. That came in 3 days. I applied for my Pass Port March 1st. That arrived in 18 days, wow, they told me it could take up to 6 weeks.
As far as my financial portion of the trip.  I've raised $702.00 so far. {thank you very much friends & family!!} I still need to raise $338.00 by mid June. That's a Praise the Lord!!... considering my whole cost including my airfare was $1040.00. Thank you for your prayers and support!! You can read about my trip here
 I'm not sure when I'll be back with anything creative. I'll try to  comment from time to time.  I'm just needing a break right now. Thank you for  your visits and sweet comments!
I love ya!!
