Hello everyone! My name is Molly and I am Joan's granddaughter. The reason that I am posting on my grandmothers blog is because she went home to be with the Lord early this morning around 5:30am on October 4th 2017. I am not sure how connected she was with this blog or how many of you she was in contact with; however, I felt it was important to let you all know what is going on. My grandma has had quite the struggle health wise lately and it became apparent to us that her time was limited. She suffered a stroke back in June and her health quickly declined. She had a few falls that lead her to find a new home where she could have around the clock care. Not even a month after moving in she began to have a cough and was brought into the hospital for examination. While she was there she suffered a heart attach. Her body was not releasing the CO2 from her lungs and her heart was working overtime. She decided she wanted to go on her terms and to be comfortable. She fell asleep early on October 3rd and never woke up. She drifted in to a deep sleep and was peaceful until the Lord took her home. She is now dancing and singing her favorite songs with her mom, dad, and so many others. Thank you for being apart of my grandmas life. Molly<3 nbsp="" p="">3>
Much brighter card than shows==below is the inside with one little pansy in the corner. Colors used are Pumpkin Pie and always artichoke along with matching designer paper--the greenery is from cardsock in Always Artichoke
This is one of my favorite cards from all time--it is difficut to mail and uses a higher priced stamp. The laarge flower is from a punch.
There is a nice Happy Birthday greeting on the inside.
simple, yet a fun card
background is stamping off with darker color on one raised flower
These cards are made from SU designer paper which was in the Christmas catalog. It is called, "Deck the Halls"name, and it was paper made to go with the new stamp set Bells and Boughs. These ideas came to me via an email last week. They are quick and I liked the look...and I'm behind in making my Christmas cards...so I'm finishing with these.
The Christmas cards below are ideas from Sandi, the lady I made cards with in an earlier post. Her website is full of ideas and she posts most every day. Three of them are from the new stamp set, Bells and Boughs from SU, one is from scenic season, and the birthday card is from Because I Care--all from SU. I am loving the new color, Cherry Cobbler, for Christmas cards.
There is anothr one called "some new cards". It is stuck in the middle of some Chritmad cards.
Some time ago, I found the "black magic" procedure...and have tried a few. This was my latest. I still need to perfect it, but enjoy trying with it.
This is from SU, Because I Care, stamp set, as well as Elegant Impressions set. The paper is a new color, Wild Wasabi. I used "nesties" for the mounting, and SU punch for the bottom of the background paper.
The bling on here is solid black, but came out such a strange color in the picture.
I used this for a sympathy card, with a sympathy verse on the inside of the card.
The front page verse is readable if you double click on card.
This is done with blackberry. The marking beneath the ribbon is from he round finger sponge
I'm a Gram, a mother to many, a firm believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, a retired teacher and social worker, and a happy, content person, trying to be always "thankful in all things!"
Currently I keep busy with the grandchildrens' visits, a weekly Bible Study with the ladies in my church, visiting shut-ins, having lunch with friends, scrapbooking, making cards, reading and enjoying a wonderful retirement for the past 22 years!
