Just a quick post today…I have lots to do and I am sure you do too! No challenges for me but I was just playing around with some of my new mini holiday catalog goodies and came up with this:
It uses a new set, Truly Grateful, as well as new DP, thinlits and ribbon! I will say that it was a challenge to adhere the “thankful” to the burlap, but I used some heavy-duty glue and it finally stuck!
My next one was for our associate pastor who is taking asenior pastor position in Raleigh, NC. Although we will miss him and his family, we know that is a good move for them. I made this card for them from our congregation:
As a birder, I had the thrill of a lifetime on Tuesday; we have had hummingbirds swooping and looping around our two feeders like CRAZY the last few days….I have seen them do this before, but not for this duration! Anyway, they are such creatures of habit, they know exactly where they can go, how they can maneuver around our house, the shed, through the porch, up into the trees, etc. Well, John moved a trash can and it got in the way of their normal path and this is what happened:
We think she smacked head-on into the trash can and it knocked the wind out of her. You can see her eyes are closed, but she was breathing heavily. I picked her up!!!!!!
She kept opening her eyes and shutting them, but she was quite calm. I remember Ann’s story recently, so I tried to feed her but she wasn’t receptive. Eventually, she recovered and she flew out of my hand, but for about 15 minutes, I was in heaven!!! I didn’t have Cassidy that day, but when she saw these pictures, even she was amazed!
