So thankful to be crafting again.

So this Is a card I made him to let him know how thankful I am for everything.

Thinking Of You Sympathy Card

 Hello, Hope you are having a wonderful day and Thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog. 

As some as you know If you seen my last post, that my Uncle Clinton passed away. Went to his funeral yesterday. It's hard when a loved one passes. He was a great guy, So fun, Always smiling and laughing. He had the best laugh and I will always cherish the memories that I have of him. 

Unfortunately I had to make another Sympathy Card. I keep telling myself to make some ahead of time. But I still haven't done It. 

I was very emotional making this card. A young man passed away suddenly that went to school with my two children.  He left behind two young children and a wife that Is expecting their third child. So heartbreaking.

His grandmother goes to my Church. So this card Is for her. Here Is the card that I made for her.


I hadn't used this stamp set in a long long time. But thought It would make a nice Sympathy card.

Catching Lightning Bugs In a Jar

 Hey, Glad you could stop by, Can't believe that June will soon be coming to an end. Time seems to be In fast mode. It has already been over four months since I had my surgery. 

When I was growing up I didn't mind the hot days of Summer and could spend hours out side playing.

 A fond memory of mine Is going out after dark and catching Lightning Bugs and putting them In a Mason Jar. I would take them to my my bedroom and look at them In the dark for awhile and then let them go. 
Have any of you all ever done that? 

I know some of you all call them Fireflies. But around here most everyone calls them Lightning Bugs.

Seems like this Summer their are more Lightning Bugs than usual. The Trees look like they are full of twinkling lights. So pretty!

 My Sister Tammy and I was talking recently about how many there are. So I decided that was the perfect Birthday Card for her this year.

So glad that I had ordered the Jars of Love Stamp Set from Stampin Up. Great Stamp Set. Love It! Instead of stamping and cutting out the handle I decided to use a thin wire. Really like how It turned out.
