A mix of cards

Well, we had a bit of summer here in Connecticut this past weekend and into the early week.  It actually got up into the high 80's early 90's (91 to be precise.)  The kids have been playing outside a good amount, Jase is having a problem with bugs.  He breaks out into screams and cries of terror if any land on him anywhere and he freezes.  His screams make my heart skip a beat.  Not sure what we are gonna do to get him over that -- maybe time will take care of it.

I haven't been creating much but I do have a few cards to show.

  1. Aw. Those are cute, Ben! I think you have been creating!!!

    Poor Jase!! Bugaphobia!!! Our daughter did that only with flies. And it did take care of itself as soon as we let it go by without making over it!! We tried reasoning and all that. Didn't work. Finally gave up...LOL so did she! LOL so hopefully there is peace for you in the future!

    Take care and keep creating. BTW Hope you get some of those pics you think someone might have. That would be wonderful!!
