I'm back .....

Hey there ... so sorry, but life keeps getting in the way of my posting here!! I just got home from visiting my daughter and her family in Pennsylvania - I spent the week there just "loving on" my 6 precious grandbabies there! The oldest, Lee, turned 17 years old today ... wonder when I will stop calling him my baby???!!! lol Emma turns 6 next Saturday and their Dad's birthday is next Monday. Quite a month for birthday parties at their house, huh! The other kids include Joel age 13, Gwen age 9, Isobel age 3 and Elisha who will be 2 in February. Elisha is our miracle baby, having weighed just about 3 pounds when he was born - he spent a couple months in the NICU and now he is walking all over and is for sure all boy!!
Here is one of my favorite cards to make and give ... everyone seems to like receiving it, from kids all the way up. It is made by punching out ovals with the Stampin' Up! oval punches and some circle punches. Each piece is "thwacked" on the edges ... this just means dipping a corner of a sponge into the ink color and "thwacking" it on the side of the paper. This is a real fun card to make as well as give!
Hope everyone is doing great .. remember these words:
Top 10 Predictions No Matter Who Won the Election 1. The Bible will still have all the answers. 2. Prayer will still work. 3. The Holy Spirit will still move. 4. God will still inhabit the praises of His people. 5. There will still be God-anointed preaching. 6. There will still be singing of praise to God. 7. God will still pour out blessings upon His people. 8. There will still be room at the Cross. 9. Jesus will still love you. 10. Jesus will still save the lost when they come to Him.
Amen and Amen ... have a wonderful weekend - I will try to post another card later tonight or tomorrow, using more of my friend Chris' new Sweet 'N Sassy stamps!
Inky Hugs, and God Bless, Shirley
