How is everyone? We are fine and dandy. The school year is coming to a close, and dreams are coming true. My oldest called me tonight to tell me he finished his Management Finance course today. It has really been giving him a hard time, but it looks like he will come out great. He has really had to study hard this semester, but he will graduate from Mississippi State in a few weeks and I am so proud of him. He is going to graduate with two degrees!!! Whoo Hoo!!!! My daughter got her acceptance letter Saturday for an externship at our hospital this summer. She is finishing up her second semester of nursing school, and she has done great!!! I confirmed our vacation plans for this summer today. I cannot wait. We always go to Florida for a week. Fun in the sun. We will go in late summer, same time we go every year.

The card above is one I made last week. The CS and DP are from Heidi Grace. The stamp is from Everyday Blessings by Papertrey Ink. The brads are also from Heidi Grace. The flower was made with the Stampin Up flower punch. The baubles are "goldfish" from Stampin Bella. The scalloped punch is by Marvy, and I would not have it if it wasn't for my great bella sistah Leanne. I hope ya'll have a great day, and may God bless all!! Take care and I will be back soon.

Hope everyone is fine. I have come down with a cold. Really have felt yucky the past 2 days, but I started on some medicine last night. I hope it kicks in soon!! The weather is beautiful. We have had so much rain lately, that it is a blessing to see the sunshine. This card is one I made from some old paper I found while cleaning my craft room. The cardstock and designer paper are from SEI--Winnies Walls; the buttons are also from this same collection; the stamp is from Verve Visual--Serenity: the ribbon is from American Crafts Elements. I love these colors. Got to go get ready for work. Everyone have a great day and God bless ya'll!!!

I'm Back!!!!

HEY YA'LL!!!! I did not turn 51 and disappear! Life has been crazy. All the family is fine, and we are living life to the fullest. All the things that have kept me from blogging are just to many to go into. Do know though, they have all been good. The one thing I will go into is that my youngest was baptized on Easter Sunday. It was awesome!!

I cannot wait to get back into posting and card making. The card above is for Jen's card sketch at http://www.iheart2stamp.com/. She does one every weekend and they are so much fun. This card is made with cardstock and designer paper from my newest packet from Paper Posies. The designer paper is from Pink Paislee www.pinkpaislee.com It is the Spring Fling Collection. All the stamps are from My Favorite Things --The Happy Mothers Day set www.mftstamps.com The ribbon and brad are from my stash.

Today's encouragemint is quite simple:

“To excel is to reach your own highest dreams, but you must also help others, when you can, to reach theirs. Personal gain is empty if you do not feel you have positively touched another’s life.” - Barbara Walters.

I hope I have touched lives along the way. It is really easy to do this. Sometimes it is something powerful, and other times it is just a smile. Let's try this week to touch lives. I would love to hear about them. I will be back soon. Ya'll take care and may God bless ya'll!!
