Thank You, Hospice

I made this card for a dedicated group of people who made a huge difference in my family’s life for over two months. The Hospice team was physically present, they were kind, patient, knowledgeable, understanding, supportive and loving.

They made all the difference for us in a challenging and sad period of time.

Words truly cannot express our gratitude.

Many Thanks

When I say many thanks, here, I mean two things. First of all I needed to thank many people, and secondly, I made many cards. I had some fun with my Tombow dual brush markers and you can see by the marks on my desk pad that I made a bunch of cards. I made 30 all alike, then the one at the bottom, separately.

The 30 cards were for 30 amazing people who showed up on a hot Sunday morning to do yard work for my Dad who lives next door. He and I had been caring for my mom, and he had been unable to keep up with the yard. The people brought chain saws, a tractor, loppers, a four wheeler to haul a trailer, clippers, shovels, and other tools. The amount of work that they accomplished was phenomenal. Words cannot really express how much what they did was appreciated.

The lower card was made for a special friend of mine in appreciation for some lovely gifts. This is a new friend who I have not even yet met in person! We became friends due to God-arranged unique circumstances. Thanks to texting, we are getting to know each other and look forward to meeting face to face in November.

Happy Birthday, Dad!

Lightning struck our internet tower the day before Father’s Day. So I wasn’t able to post this until today. But that’s OK because today is my Dad’s birthday. Below is Father’s Day card that I made for him.

Let me say that my dad is an amazing man! I have really enjoyed living next door to him these past three-plus years. We have a lot of similar interests and working with him is fun and a learning experience. He is wise, practical, a problem solver, and a man of many excellent abilities. God gave me an amazing gift when he gave me my Dad.

 

To Mom

Lots of love, some clip art,¬†paper cutter¬†and all the rest…FullSizeRender-1.jpg

The picture of the little girl playing the piano is very significant. I owe my ability to play the piano to my mother who saw to it that I had lessons from Mrs. Hardy, and most of all that I practiced every day. Thank you, Mom!

Inside I also listed some of the many things that I admire about Mom and am thankful for. One of the things I admire about her is that she is and has always been beautiful.

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom.
