I'm back!

It seems like I have been gone forever! My uncle passed away and my pop went to Arizona for the services. I stayed out to their home to take care of mom and was so happy and surprised when my brother emailed me with the flight itenary for his wife to come and spend almost two weeks with me. I had a good visit with my sister from Alaska and we did spend much of our time giggling as that is what she does best! She is the most upbeat positive person I know and I just love being around her. Mom had a rough couple days while pop was gone as I think she missed him terribly. But we also had some good times with her too. Her quick wit and sense of humor is wonderful and the three of us laughed a lot in between her naps. We stayed at mom's four nights and then just went out during the days while pop worked once he got home. We did get to spend a couple nights on the island. My two little grandsons made up a couple challenges for us to do and I will post pics of those later. I made this card for Barb as a thank you for all she did and continues to do for me. This is the first chance I have even had to scrap since I got home and I am so happy to get back into the swing of things. Thanks for stopping by and visiting.

Challenges I am entering it in:

The sketch is from Magical Crafts

At Stamping for the Weekend you were to use your favorite book as inspiration. Well, the Bible is my favorite book so thought this would be a great challenge to join.

Over at Triple the Scraps, Scripture challenge #9 is for "Quiet" time with God. I feel this image says it all. Be still and know that He is God.

At Stampin Sisters in Christ, the challenge is for sewing.

Alota Rubber Stamps is challenging us to use flowers on our creations.

And the last challenge is from the ABC Challenge where T is for Thank You.

Blessing to you all.
