Beef, potatoes & a 6 year old photographer

More pictures from last night, there are some pic's of our beefer's we have 6 black angus and 2 hereford's. My husband can hand feed them grass, it's so cute. Also our potatoes look lovely this year my husband planted only 200 lbs this year as opposed to 500 lbs last year, and last but not least the beautiful skyscape picture was taken by my very talented(if I do say so myself) daughter all by herself!

What A View

Last night(Friday) we spent the night at camp
to celebrate my son's 3rd birthday, and everytime I am there I am just amazed at the beauty surrounding us, evertime I look around me I am just amazed at what God has created for us to enjoy while we are here. We have recently decided to build a house here, so this will be a view for us to enjoy everyday- God willing of course! Just looking at these pictures make me thankful. I am thankful that Jesus Christ died for me, even though I did not deserve it, I am thankful for my husband who is absolutely the best thing to have ever happened to me, apart from my salvation, without him I would not be the person I am today, and I would not be the mother I am today to 4 perfect,beautiful children for whom which I am also especially thankful. I am thankful for my family and my friends who mean so much to me, and I am thankful for the wonderful people I have met through this great hobby of mine who leave me comments that just warm my heart, or swell my head as my husband would say(LOL). There is so much to be thankful for I can't list them all, what are you thankful for today?

Bella Pizza Box

This is a little pizza box I made today, isn't it cute? It only took about 10 minutes, I used CTMH'S Smokey Plum and Bella paperpack and Stickease, Hollyhock stiched ribbon and my square scalloped nestability. The tutorial for this little cutie can be found at Splitcoast stampers. This box would be just perfect for a big cookie,
3x3 cards, a piece of jewlrey, or anything else you can think of!

Company kit that I love.


This card is very different for me and very plain but with no time to fix it oh well, I may try to add a scallop under the ribbon or something. The medallion was colored with Copics and cut out and pop dotted on a scalloped circle.

Teacher Gift Set

Well today is my oldest's last day of kindergarten.
I have no idea where the time went. This is the
gift set I made for her teacher Mrs Kaufmann.
Anyone who knows me knows that I struggled
with the decision of whether or not to send Elaina
to public school, well thanks to a wonderful teacher I did not regret my decision to send her!
So we wanted to let Mrs.Kaufmann know how much we appreciated her and all of her hard
work she does as a teacher! The stationary box
contains 6 matching cards and envelopes and was
posted in detail on a previous post!

Products used:
Paper Line: Imaginesce

I finally made this cube, I ordered when the new idea book came out and it has been sitting on my counter ever since. So this is what I made for Fathers Day for my husband almost everything is CTMH, the paper is It's A Guy Thing, and I used the Just Like You and Checklist stamp sets.

For Papa Bear

This is my husbands father's day card. I used
CTMH'S Backcountry paper, Beary Best ss,
ribbon, and brads. I used the Nestabilities Curvy
Rectangle die to cut out my rectangle and the image was colored
with Copics. My husband loves to cut wood(weird huh?)
so I thought this stamp set was just perfect, and me
and my kiddos think he is The Beary Best.

Here is another simple graduation card similar to yesterday's. I used H&M's Celebrate The Day stamp set, CTMH cardstock and ribbon and cuttlebug argyle embossing folder, the image was colored with Copics.

Easy Peasy
