Seeing stars...

Friday, June 21, 2013

Hey everyone!  Happy Friday to you all!  Seems like forever since I posted, and I know it has been forever since I visited many of you.  Please forgive me...I'm currently drowning under a sea of Vacation Bible School decorations and least, that's what it feels like.  And I'll be the first to admit, I'm not all that joyful about it this year.  It has certainly become harder as my kids are older, busier and really ready to spend the free time they do have just enjoying summer, family and friends.  Like many of you, I have a hard time saying 'no' in many cases...but next year will have to be different...and knowing that it will, will get me through this year.

It's just about time to release a new set at Precious Remembrance so you'll find my final Little One project at the PR blog today...

It was inspired by this card I somehow managed to pull together for my hubby for Father's Day...

I love those rays from Sending Sunshine and I've wanted the dies and star images from the Super Stars set for quite some time.  I think I'll be using those LOTS!
Here's my crew on Father's Day...

Sure do love those critters!  Even that big gray-headed one!
I really appreciate your visit today!  I promise to get back to regular visiting as soon as I can!


  1. Hey girl!! Sounds like you've been a busy bee. So happy you were able to squeeze these cards in, your father's day card is amamzing!! Love the rays behind the fab star. Off to PR, have a GREAT day!!

  2. Loving the card! The rays are perfectly placed! hang in there with the VBS will be so appreciated and you are making a difference with your service!

  3. Thanks for sharing a picture of the rays of sunshine that warm your heart and light up your life! Truly a handsome & pretty lot!

    Love the colors...your stamping is absolutely perfect! I would have been hyperventilating by the time I was stamping these images!

    Sounds like you are a busy, busy lady right now! Thing to do is to remember this feeling next year when you are asked to volunteer for the same task!!!

  4. Life sounds super busy and I get it Geri. Despite all the craziness your FD card is absolutely amazing and I left you some love for that fantastic card on the PR Blog! Have a great weekend.

  5. Geri as always I love your beautiful cards! And I know what you mean about summer vacation! The picture of your family is so beautiful! Family is surely the biggest blessing given to all of us while we are here. Happy Summer - I will pray that your bible school decorations and class go smoothly and joyously!

  6. Beautiful cards, Geri! I love the stars!

  7. Oh Geri I just LOVE your card! Those sunshine rays look amazing. Hang in there with VBS. Next year you can pass it on to someone else who needs the blessing of volunteering:)

  8. Gorgeous as always - I am also drawn to those sun rays, but don't know how much I would use them (then I see others do incredible things with them, to change my mind), and have also had the stars on my wishlist for some time.

    Why is it that summer, which is supposed to be all relaxed and laid back, is always the busiest time of the year?!

  9. Love the family photo you've shared. Kids are growing and all those "yes" replies will be remembered and you'll miss all that was involved in summer fun.
    Glad you take time to create, both cards are beauties. I use Stars a lot for my family too and I really like these images.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  10. Beautiful work, Geri! Beautiful photo of your family too! Have fun at DVBS! All the hard work will be worth it! :o)

  11. Hey sweetie! I managed to get out of VBS this year so I know what you're talking about. It can be pretty stressful. Once again you have done some amazing stamping GF. Fantastic card. Looks like a pretty good looking bunch to me. Find some me time and enjoy your family. Hugs!

  12. Such a pretty card! Love the pic too!

  13. Your work is always amazing! What an awesome crew you have!

  14. Awww Geri Your cards are always amazing and I love your picture!!!
