I'm Back ......

Hello Spring ... at least we hope it is really here! The weather man tells us that we may be getting some rain/snow mix this weekend - yuck! But at least we know it won't be staying too long ... and we here in Michigan are not getting the terrible weather some other areas are, so we are thanking our God for that.
Well, I did it again ... got busy with "life" and forgot that I have a blog! Shame, shame, shame on me -- I will really try not to let so long pass without at least popping in to say "hi". I have been making cards, I just have not posted them.
Above are a couple sets of 3x3 cards I delivered today to a friend who is going on a trip and needed some little gifts. Hope you enjoy them. Stampin' Up! sets I used are Pocket Silhouettes and Take Three with the Floral background stamp - I embossed with clear powder on different colors of cardstock with the background. I wish I would have made some for me --- but these little cards are so easy and so much fun to make!!
As for some news, I have decided to let my Stampin' Up! demonstratorship go. At this point, I am doing better with my Pampered Chef business, and more people are wanting to have a PC show and get products they need, rather than a SU class to get products they want but can do without, during this time. So call me if I can help you with any of your Pampered Chef needs! Just a little commercial .... lol
We are looking forward to seeing my siblings this weekend in Grand Rapids for dinner. It has been months since we have seen most of them. Due to the Winter weather, we can never plan anything for those months, so this will be fun. There are five of us - I am the baby girl -- does that surprise you? lol .... not that I am admitting that I am spoiled, but ....
Another big thing coming up for us in May is grandson Josiah's high school graduation and Eagle Scout ceremony, both Memorial Day weekend. Amy and her family will be here too - so it will be a fun and busy time. I can't wait .... I may have to plan a trip to Pennsylvania this month -- this G'ma is missing all those hugs and kisses from those precious ones.
Well, take care ... we wish you all the blessings from God that you can handle. My friend in Illinois (Danita) says "Don't cry because it is over, smile because it happened." I love that - good attitude to have every day and a great way to live! Hugs to all ... Shirley
