G' Morning Friends!

As some of you have heard, we received a phone call yesterday morning, telling us that my beloved FIL (he was truly my buddy, my friend, a second dad to me, and so much more) passed away. Though his health has deteriorated in the past couple of years, we were not anticipating this. He died of a sudden heart attack. Paramedics' attempts to revive him were unsuccessful.

I will admit, I cried a bucket of tears yesterday - which my swollen red eyes can attest to.

We live in Illinois. He lived in Virginia, but most of his life was spent in Kentucky, where the funeral will be. Our son who lives in Wisconsin will drive here today. Tomorrow, we will travel to Kentucky. Our daughter who lives in Mississippi will meet us in Kentucky. The visitation is Sunday; the funeral on Monday. We will travel home on Tuesday. I'm not sure if our son will leave here on Wednesday or if he will stay a bit longer.

My MIL, who is in the final stages of Alzheimer's, will not grieve the loss of her husband of 57 years. Her disease has already taken his memory away from her.

My husband, who is a "twin" to his dad, albeit over 20 years younger - they look alike, think alike, laugh alike, talk alike - will be preaching the funeral. I plan to take along a HUGE box of Kleenex to be able to wipe my tears.

I covet your thoughts/prayers for us during this time!

Also, I will not be posting a PSA again until Wednesday at the earliest.

(((Hugs!!)))

Jeanette, my heart goes out to you and your family. Prayers for God's strength for you Husband as he recalls the life of his father and may he in some way point others to The Father.

Default Thank you Maria

I received an envelope full of cards from Maria In WI yesterday. They are awesome. Thank you so much. I want to know what technique was used on the one with the fish, it is awesome. There were several cards that were the same, so I am only showing 1 of each.
For the rest of you, here is a sneak peek at the cards. I will also be adding cards to my blog later today. Check it out!

Glad you got the cards.

I must confess to not making all of them......I went through my stash of "special cards" and pulled some of them to send for RMH.

That fish card looks like the rubber band brayer technique. It's fairly easy

Oh My Goodness, Martha!!! How on earth did they run out!?

Believe it or not, I just moved into a house here and my stuff was delivered Thursday. So I have about 50 boxes piled high in the craft room that I have yet to unpack, but when I do, I will be sending some to you. I also just got in touch with the RMH here in Boise and will be starting to work with them to supply cards and items to their facility too.

The reason they ran out is that I broke my leg in May, was unable to put any weight on it for 7 weeks, went back to work and had such a hard time getting back in the routine of working (standing on my feet all day didn't work too well,) that I didn't have the energy or the time to get any done and there. With so many peoples help, I am now in good shape up there. I am still working with card fronts you had sent me earlier. Thanks so much and Blessings to you as you work with the house in Boise!

Hi Martha
I have completed my 4+2 cards so they will be in the mail shortly. I was going through all of the cards I have received from various swaps I have participated in the last few years and needless to say I have A LOT of single, very nice, cards. Would you like some of these for the RMc House? I was thinking if you would like some of them that I would send as many as I could securely fit into a Small Priority Post Box or Envelope and send them you way.
Let me know.

I guess I should've read thru the thread before sending the above message. I saw that Terry was thinking the same way as I was. Great idea Terry and Happy Birthday Month!
I will send a 'few' this week too

Good Morning Friends!








I've been away from SCS (other than a couple of threads) for over a week - am so far behind that I'm not going to try to catch up on everything said in all of my subscribed threads, so if I've missed something important, please let me know.

I do appreciate all of the kindness so many of you have shown my family and I during these difficult days. It has helped to ease my grief in the loss of my beloved FIL.


... ... ... ...


Today is Collect Rocks Day,
National Cinnamon Raisin Bread Day,
Stay Away from Seattle Day, Wonder why???
Mayflower Day,
Trail of Tears Commemoration Day,
Stepfamily Day,
and National Working Parents Day.




Enjoy your holiday(s) of choice today!

After being arrested for stealing a car, the judge asked the man, "How do you plead?" Instead of saying guilty or not guilty the man said: "Before we go any further, judge, let me explain why I stole the car." The judge ruled in record time.

Police interrogated a suspect by placing a metal colander on his head and connecting it with wires to a photocopy machine. The message "He's lying" was placed in the copier, and police pressed the copy button each time they thought the suspect wasn't telling the truth. Believing the "lie detector" was working, the suspect confessed.

A group of drug traffickers cleverly decided to use a propane tanker to cross the border from Mexico to El Paso, Texas. They released the propane and concealed within the truck 6,240 pounds of marijuana. The men did not realize, however, that they had misspelled the name of the gas company. That little error raised a red flag and they were detained at the border and arrested.

Default Cards, Cards, and more Cards!

I am totally blown away by the response from you ladies!

First let me apologize for being so late in posting, no excuses, just more hours at work and less energy when I get to the house. I finally have pictures of them all taken, but have to take the new dog to the vet this morning. Hope to have time while watching our Razorbacks play this afternoon to get pictures up.

Just to let you know whose cards are going to be posted later today, I received cards from

Cheryl Corrigal

Carol-momcgw

Carol White-Purplrags

Kim Butesu-CherryLime

Laura Jean-LJ

Ladies, I cannot begin to thank you enough, if I don't have time to make another card for months, you have me covered!

Blessings to all, Martha

National POW/MIA Recognition Day,

Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us that the World in Inhabited By IDIOTS!




As a female shopper exited a convenience store, a man grabbed her purse and ran. The clerk called 911 immediately and the woman was able to give them a detailed description of the snatcher, and police apprehended him within minutes. They put him in the cruiser and drove back to the store. The thief was then taken out of the car and told to stand there for a positive ID. To which he replied, "Yes Officer, that's her. That's the lady I stole the purse from."

Would you like some of these for the RMc House? I was thinking if you would like some of them that I would send as many as I could securely fit into a Small Priority Post Box or Envelope and send them you way.
Let me know.
That would be wonderful!

Hi
My cards were sent Priority Post today. I believe there was around 18-20 cards sent. You should receive them Tuesday.
Make sure you look in the envelope for a small Hostess Gift
Please, PM me if you need help again....any time!

I received your cards, they are awesome!!! Thank you so much for your help. I am overwhelmed with the outpouring of cards for this project. I have officially lost count of how many have come in, but I know I can rest easy as I get back into the craft room and get to play. I will not be stressed to hurry and finish some to get them to the house, as you ladies have helped me create that calm again. Blessings, Martha

Now for a look at those pictures!
