Easter Sunday!

 
Brooklyn in her Easter dress. So precious!

 
Here she is at my Mom's for Easter dinner. Chey is holding her. She spent most of Easter napping.

 
My little Buddy all dressed up for Easter Sunday. He is so cute!

 
His first Easter egg hunt. He wasn't sure what to do at first, but then Daddy brought out his bucket and he had so much fun! Loved seeing my son and grandson out there together!

 
Talking to Grammy about his truck!

 
At my Mom's for Easter dinner. Always an amazing day!
He was on the run every minute except for when I was feeding him!

 
Eric, Sarah, Thomas and Brooklyn.
Love them!


We were blessed to get to drive home for Easter Sunday. Was exhausting, but wouldn't trade it for all the sleep possible. Thomas wore Pap out, but Jeff loved it!



Of course the most important thing about Easter Sunday is our resurrected Saviour! There is no way to express my love for my risen Saviour! God has blessed me with so much in family and friends, but the greatest of all blessing is my salvation by grace through faith in the risen Saviour!

Spring Chick

 
Here is a cute Spring Chick card I made with a digi from Deedee!
The solid color paper is "melon", but it looks red in this picture...ugh!
This set comes with outlined, layering, and pre-colored digis.
As well as sentiments and digital paper!
You just can't beat that! Everything you need to make a cute card!
You can purchase this set and many other here:


 
I don't often show the inside of my cards, but I really like this sentiment.

 
Of course, this is my Spring Chick, Brooklyn!
I just love her so much!

I was blessed with a visit home to see my grandbabies!

 
She is smiling at Grammy!!!

 
I know I look a mess in this picture, but I loved it!
Thomas just wanted to lean back on Grammy, and Brooklyn just wanted to be held while she slept!
I love them so much!!!

Our first granddaughter, Brooklyn Elizabeth Finch, arrived at 1:29 a.m. on March 30, 2014
She weight 7 pounds and 9 ounces and was 21 inches long.

 
 
 
Of course I'm in love with her....I have been for months!
 
Thomas wasn't so sure at first, but is warming up to her now...lol!
I love this picture of my son with his children....look at that smile on his face! One proud Daddy!
 

Sarah is doing awesome! She says two children will be an adventure! They are only 14 months apart......she is in for a wild one! LOL!
 

God has blessed our family again with a healthy baby!
Thank you Lord!

Just for you!

 
This little lamb digi reminds me of a little Easter lamb that we bought Thomas last year.
It is so cute when he hugs it to his neck and says " Awwwww"!

 
Last Saturday night before we took off for another job all the kids were at our house for supper.
Cheyenne was feeding Thomas when he started acting really silly! He kept laying down
like this and making funny faces at Daniel. We are thinking its because Daniel is so tall....but who knows. Thomas can be so silly! We love it! He is so much fun!

 
He loves being outside!

 
Look at the joy on his face! He walked the entire time....led us on a 2 mile hike!
What joy grandchildren bring!
God is so good to us!
Thomas, Grammy loves you!!!

Spring!



 
Here is a card I made with a  sweet digi from Deedee. It is part of her Hello Spring set.
It is awesome! It comes with 4 cute Spring images, 8 sentiments and 3 digital papers!
You can shop from her blog here: Deedeesdigis
See some cute cards made with her images. I have a few featured on her blog.

 
I love bird watching.....from my window! Ha ha!
 We've been watching these Ring necked pheasants all winter. There were 4 to start, but we've only
seen two for a few weeks now. I'm afraid the fox may have gotten the other two.


 
I have 5 bird feeders as well as 4 suet feeders that I fill the entire time we are home.
 I hang 3 of them around the porch and one on a tree where they can be seen out the windows of our first floor. Thomas stands on the love seat, counter top and in his high chair to watch the birds with me. I love it!
 


 
Here is my little Buddy helping me wash dishes at his house.
He is growing up so fast. Still chewing on everything, but he has two teeth now!
He's going to be a big brother very soon.

One digi, many cards!

 
I love printing out pre-colored digi sets like this one!
I can put together many cards in a very little time.

 
Stamped the sentiment onto the bottom of the cardstock I had printed the digi on.
Added some bakers twine, and layered some colored paper. Done!

 
Here I used the punch I used in the first picture, only placed it vertically.
Made this one an anniversary card simply by stamping Happy Anniversary on the bottom.

 
A piece of ribbon, punched paper and a different sentiment, but the same digi.
See how simple it is to make so many cards with one digi set.
I made 7 different cards with this set in a very short time.

 
Here is my little Buddy having fun in the nursery at church!
This day he was talking to one of the baby girls. It was so cute, he squatted down so she could hear him, then ended up laying down on the blanket with her and just jabbered away! So sweet!

RoyalTea

 
I've been thinking about tea time and how the British people have it daily....that led to me
thinking about the Queen of England. Then I thought, I'm a child of the King of Kings...
so, I'm a princess. No wonder I love having tea time! LOL! God is good!

 
I used the stamp set my friend, Sandy, bought me for my birthday to make these cards.
Check out her beautiful creations on her blog here: Made with Love and Prayers
The middle is popped up, just hard to see in the picture.

 
A little different version.

 
Remembering the proper English tea that the girls set up for me at the tea house in Washington, Pa.

 
So pretty!

 
So yummy!

 
How blessed I am to have so many wonderful people who love me!
How wonderful to know Jesus as my Saviour, and be a Princess!

Tea Time!

 
My daughter, friend and I have been all about the tea time lately.
When I saw that Deedee
had a cute set titled Tea Time, I just knew I was going to use the images.
I used one of the pre-colored digis on this card, and a sentiment that comes with the set.
I found this ribbon with tea cups on it months ago, and have been wanting to use it.

 
Here is the same image with a different sentiment, that is also included in the set.
The set comes with 3 different images, both colored and outlines. Also included
are 5 sentiments, and  one  is a Bible verse!
This entire set is only $3.50 and you can purchase it here:
Deedees Digis

What a great set to use and so easy to make quick, cute cards.

 
This is another image in the set.

My friend, Grace and I have started a weekly tea time. On Tuesdays I go to her house, we have tea and discuss our Bible reading for the previous week. Then we go to a nearby nursing home and visit the residents. After that we have breakfast in a little diner in the town where she lives.
What a blessing it has been to both of us to discuss our Bible reading together! We started this
when I was out of town with my husband and Grace says those chats helped her through some tough times. She may not realize it, but they were just as much of a help to me!
Visiting the nursing home always seems to be a blessing to me....when I expect to be a blessing
to the residents.
And, of course.....breakfast at the diner is awesome! LOL!
 
I thank God for His Word, time to spend in it and with friends, and for a friend who wants
to discuss His Word with me. We both miss is so much when we miss a day.
Again, God is good!!
