    Mother’s Day deliveries

    Our family decided to celebrate Mother’s Day Saturday…. So that on Sunday the moms could sleep in… or not drive 3 hours one way.. haha. So, right after Coffee and Cards I flew out the door and headed to my parents… Here are the goodies that were brought to the loving ladies in my life. Most of them are for my mom, but I do hate to leave anyone out! I hope you take good care of the important ladies in your life. Let them know how important in any way that you can… visit, talk or call is a good start… presents are not a requirement. Just love them…

    Finally the garden

    Happy Sunny Day! Started with making Sun Tea…. then….. Joe and I went to town Sunday morning to get a few things…. including seed potatoes, candy onions, yellow onions and red onions.

    Redbud Tree Inspiration

There is a card that has been kept up on the inspiration shelf since then… Soon the whole card will be retired…. the last hold out was the stamps… the ribbon and punches sued have been gone of several years. Do you see the four seasons?? That was the inspiration for the type of set that was created above… Here is our Redbud tree/spring inspired card. Just out the…

She has taken me under wing about farm/country life… helped me can for the first time, brought some crazy chickens to the homestead and loved my like one of her kids. I am GRATEFUL she moved across the street and that she has been…
