On my mind

This is a card I post a few days ago, and Deleted, UGH!! 
Not Fun. Not only did I delete this one I deleted a few post on accident. I found out you can recover your blog post through Google. But when I went to search for it, it was no longer available. I'm assuming I waited to Long. 

The original post was about my sons recovery. He has been in a program since mothers day of Last year. I'm am so proud of him. It has taken so much stress off my shoulders. I now Don't have to worry about him as far as living a life with His drug addiction. I have prayed for so many years for his life to be changed. and Now I can say that GOD has answered my prayers. GOD IS GOOD!!!! 

If any parent out there going through a rough time with a child please don't give up. It took many years of prayer and faith. And asking for prayer from family and friends. 

This program is From a Church called Victory Outreach and its free. And they are all over your cities. 

Everyday he has been on my mind since he has been away from home. 
This is just one of many cards that will be donated to the program . The Men in the program can use my cards and love them. My son says they all send them to there love ones. So happy I can help with my cards.

so many Smiles and Roses

All the supplies I used here are from stamp'in up.
Stamps is Stippled blossom Paper is from Gingham garden.

RV Camping check list

Today I'm sharing something a little different. As you can see Not a Card at all.
But It was just as FUN!!!

So this weekend I will be camping ! Some of you might say well that isn't FUN . LOL
I grew up camping with lots of family and kept it going with my kids. SO last year we bought a Travel Trailer and WOW it made a difference. Well at least for the Bed and Bathroom .  I love that you can just get up from your bed and not roll over to the floor from an air mattress. And walk a few steps to the Restroom. ( A sign of Relief )

So about my real reason why I'm posting today. Is because I came across PIC MONKEY
And heard a little tiny bit about it. So I decided to take a peek at it. And thought, HEY I can use this software since I can not use my silhouette cameo. And It's FREE!!!

So I watched a couple of Youtube Videos And then thought what can I create here. Then A light bulbwent on in my little brain. YES!!!


HOW ABOUT THAT. Just what I needed for this weekend.

SO what do you think of my list? It's my first try so be Nice.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you will come back!
Have a Blessed DAY!!!

The First one is  a card I made for a boy. Normally it's so hard for me to come up with masculine cards. But Simon says stamp kind of made it easy for me. I used there All Boy stamp set.
And I also want to share that I used some Old school cutting tools. Do Y'all remember the scissors with all kinds of fun shapes?
