At last

I had the time to make a card. It was a thank you card for a friend who has truly been there with all of the ups and downs for us during the past few weeks. The stamps used are from Unity and the inks used on the Bazzill white cardstock were Distress Inks Bundled Sage and Antique Linen. The corners were edged with the CM corner rounder. The ribbon bow is SU ivory sheer.
As this week is our VBS and I am the lead toddler teacher, it will be another busy week ahead. This is the first year we will be offering a toddler class. Our curriculum offered their program plans for the little ones on line and so a friend Michelle and I are working on making sure the children will have fun. It should be quite an adventure as it is being held from 5:30-8:30pm. First we have supper and then the fun begins and it is all free to the families. Have a great week ahead!

we are nearly done with the cleanup. This has been the longest month in our world. Today we had the furnace repair people here. They rebuilt our furnace (and aside from the bill ,you don't want to know about the amount),we should be warm again in the winter time-Yeah! We have been slowly trying to get back to "normal". We are planning on painting the basement over the 4th of July. Our son Erik has been chipping off the old textured bumpy plaster so we can have smooth walls. We would never have gotten done all the work finished if he hadn't been helping us every step of the way.
In the midst of the mess, my cousin Conrad died. Since we could not go to NJ for the funeral, I made cards and sent them to each member of the family and their own families. That is about all of my recent card making activities. I hope to get to card making soon.
