It's been 2 years..........

It's been 2 years ago today that we had our house fire.  In some ways it seems like yesterday.  Going through something like that can be devastating, but I am praising God that we all survived and we have a beautifully renovated home now.  Beauty out of the ashes so to speak.  If you haven't been following my blog for that long you can look back to April/Nov 2009 and you'll see our journey.  We were displaced for almost 7 months.  This day will probably always bring back not so good memories, but it's part of us now.  I have lots of pictures from the beginning and all the process of getting us back in our house, but I'm just not ready to scrapbook them yet.  Maybe some day.

Anyway on to happier things.  It's Easter week and that in and of itself should be a good time because of the love the Lord had for us.  Praise Him!  I've been having fun making Easter cards and this is one of them.  I'm going to give it to my mom for Easter.

I just love to make these Tri-fold Shutter cards.  Once you see how they go together, they really are easy.  I believe that SCS has the how to's in their resource library or you could goggle it to find directions or better yet come on over and I'll show you how to make one.  What time should I expect you?

Oh, Renee...if only I lived I'd be happy to craft & stamp with you ANY DAY!! I do love seeing all the cards you create!

I'm so sorry that you had to go through the terrible experience of a house fire, but I hope that things are now improving being in your new home. Being displaced for so long is such a tough thing for anyone, but once again your uplifting spirit just shines through again here in your post.

I'm sending you big, warm hugs as you go through remembering that terrible day, and sincerely hope your days from her on out will continue to be brighter.

~Lots of hugs~
