A Wish for Peace / Thoughts and Prayers

Irma also gave me this card she had made it for a swap she was in. Said she got the technique from me. That swelled may head.. a special thanks to the person who shared it with me.

Got the new flag!!!

We thought the other picture looked a little drab so Ray put up a new flag he had to cut a few branches as the pole would not come down through them. It looks much better so bright so have a very HAPPY CANADA DAY.. it is also the the first day of the year for Stampin'UP! so happy stampin day as well.
I want to thank all the wonderful people who came and supported me with my retirement sale it certainly is going to make it easier for me to get new product and not feel so guilty having a great time at convention while Ray keeps the home fires burning.


Hello today is Canada Day the first of July...You can barely see the flag here. It is there though when we bought this property Ray put up the flag pole he brought from the farm, as well as the bird house he built, that in is self is a story.. anyway it was out in front of all the trees. As the years have gone by the trees have grown leaps and bounds and now the pole that is cemented in is hardly visible. But we do fly the flag usually we change it every 6 months it is in need of a change again. Enjoy this holiday of our freedoms on the Canada day remember to say a prayer to all our service men and women and thank them for their service so we can enjoy..
