Back in the country/sub-burbs, where we belong....and....LOVE it!!!!

STB#, MTs 133, Sail Away With Me!

Although we don't own a sail boat, I love the idea of sailing away for a day and just enjoying the water and peacefulness that seems to go along with sailing :-) ~ my little birthday cards gives me a sense of peace and calm in the midst of the storms that we seem to be facing lately!

I loosely followed the sketch from Match the Sketch (hope that's okay) and my favourite birthday site, Seize The Birthday challenge. I have been committing to sending out birthday wishes this year and doing pretty good with keeping ahead of it all (although, this past week and a bit, haven't been done) ~ belated cards, here we come!

He's been my 'other' dad for over 36 years...I love you dad and will miss you always. Norman Ross Willerton, went to be with his Lord and Savior...til we meet again my friend 
😓 ⭕️

JUGS 344 ~ PP 296

What a fun day of creating for me ~ I guess this really has become something to sing about...figuring out my creating without a studio in our new Condo ~ LOVE IT!!!  This forces me to stay organized and tidy as I go...quite a feat for this gal!!!
Here's a view of the sunset the other evening ~ and of course the pictures jus don't do it justice AT ALL!!!  Painted by the very Hand of God!



I had just posted on my dear cyber friend LeAnne's blog about having sympathy cards on hand and not needing to creating one when needed ~ my heart is so sad having to say 'see you later' to a dear friend and prayer warrior ~ you will be missed Vivian
