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.

 

The Cousin Tree

I have to be honest to say that I haven’t sent out a batch of Christmas cards for many years. But lately, I have been thinking about family and how unique FAMILY really is. I can choose my friends, but God chose my family for me. That’s special!

So I designed a Cousin Christmas Tree for all of my cousins. Some I see from time to time, but one of them I have never met. 

Cousins, I’m glad we are related. These are for you!
