Wrapping up

And just like that...another school season is winding down.  Seems like yesterday my 8th grader and junior in high school were getting into a routine and learning the ropes.  Now they have major "summer-i-tis" and are just about done.
I have been crafty, just not frequent to posting.  Here are belated Easter gifts with candy I gave to my sorority sisters and kids:

And here are graduation cards and other seasonal cards:






It's been a very busy last couple of months with 2 weddings, 3 graduation parties, Olivia had prom, Isaac had prom and was voted next year's SGA President - and my sister and family are visiting in less than 2 weeks! I am still in denial that I will have 2 kids under my roof that are in high school.  It's really zooming by now.  (insert SAD face!!)

God is SO good!  Celebrating with my gladiolas in full bloom!  God bless!

It's Spring!

I love watching the flowers bloom, hearing the frogs melody and listening to the birds sing their songs.  Here are some cards to celebrate the season.  The first has bees...


This card was used as a birthday gift to deliver a gift card:


We enjoyed this Easter season and here are the Easter cards I sent to family and friends:



Here's hoping the season brings you showers of love, grace and blooming colors to brighten your day!

One more!

Just when I thought I had posted all my Valentine cards...I found one more!


Happy belated birthday to my niece, Ella!  I still can't believe she is in middle school.  Being a military family, I have missed watching my nieces and nephew grow up.  I guess the same could be said for them...watching my kids grow up.  Such is the life of a military family.  Out of that rabbit hole...

Ella had a fun birthday with a sleepover in a hotel.  What a great idea:  hotel swimming pool, double beds...dinner in.  And the maid cleans up.  Fabulous! 
I thought she'd like this fingernail polish card.  It was super easy and they are even in a clear "jar":


And finally, with Valentine's Day behind us, we move on to St. Patrick's Day:
