Days in the lives of The Toddlers

I have been promising a post for quite awhile and finally getting around to it.  Gone are the days of perfectly posed pictures.  Here is kind of a hodgepodge of pictures that I have and in no particular order.  Hopefully, I can tell who is who in the pictures.  It's much harder than IRL and sometimes not easy then either.  Usually, we can tell by the bumps on the forward but sometimes they both have them around the same places.  Justin is the one who had stitches last time and he keeps hitting the same spot.  Then he hit another spot on his forehead on a concrete block outside.  It wasn't as bad as the first one and didn't require stitches.
They are so busy, running around like crazy.  Rhonda & I are constantly catching our breath hoping that they are ok.  They are talking in 2-3 word sentences and repeat everything we say.  It is so amazing how much they learn in the first couple of years. 
They are such a joy in our lives.  So glad I moved down here to watch them grow.
Love these little ones!!!!

This is what happens the minute Ramie turns her back and has her hands full of play-doh that she is making for them.  Lol

Anna looks like she is ready for school 

If you look very closely, Avery is in the middle of the picture.  She graduated from Jr. High.

So cute.

Justin and mom. The is the spot where he hit is head on the concrete blocks.

                                                                                    Justin, doesn't he just look so old?

Dad, Mom,
Another guess,  Connor, Justin & Anna

Well hope you all enjoy and hope you all are staying safe.

Thanks for stopping by.

Twofer Challenge #29 Revised

So after posting my cards below, I realized that they were both the same design so I have revised my Sympathy card to come up with a different design.  Lol

Couldn't let this month go by without playing in Twofer cause butterflies are one of my favorites to use for cards.


I used Avery Elle's Butterflies.  The first was done with color pencils and Gamsol, one of the techniques that Gina K. has been using a lot in her live videos.  And the second is blending DOX inks and then ink up in black for a silhouette.
I hope these are different enough to qualify.  It occurred to me that they are basically the same design.  Oh no!!! Oh well, I had fun anyway.

Thanks for stopping by.

CAS Christmas July 2020 Reminder

Here is my second card for this month's CAS Christmas challenge
You have until the 24th to get your entry in.  Please come and join us.  I know it is the middle of July but you know how fast Christmas comes.

I again used the same miscellaneous stamp set that I have for the Nativity.
I sponged on DOX inks  masked with Taylored Expressions Circle stencil.  This was supposed to go on one card base but I messed up so had to do some cutting.  I think I would have liked it better on one card front.

Thanks for stopping by.

CAS Christmas July 2020

Hello friends, this month our talented Host is Marcia and she would like us to use a Nativity scene on our cards.  Please join us at CAS Christmas as we are on the downhill slope until Christmas (What??) Only 5 more months and we know how fast that time goes. 

I used an old miscellaneous Christmas stamp set that I have had for many years.  I think it is the only Nativity set I have.
I sponged  DOX inks and then white embossed the image of Mary and Jesus.  I framed it with a die from Poppy Stamps Simple Bethlehem Frame that my BFF had given to me.

Thanks for stopping by.
