A close call- yesterday morning around 9:30 I was in the bedroom getting dressed when I heard a strange sound behind me. I checked on Hailey down the hallway to see if she was into something, she was fine. When I went back into the bedroom I noticed a hole in the wall by the window. I called DH and told him I thought someone just shot the house, he said call 911. SO I called and a little while later an officer shows up. He went in the bedroom and looked at the wall, he told me, "Usually when I get a call that some one's house was shot there isn't a hole. Your house was shot." So we start looking for the bullet and can't find it. After a lot of searching we find a dent in the door on the opposite wall. This door opens into the hall and is closed unless we are in the bedroom. DH comes home and we still search for the bullet, the officer checks behind our back fence behind the house for the casing. He talked to a couple of people from the Apartments behind our house. He told us if we found the bullet to call them back. Around 3:30 Hunter went into his bathroom at the opposite end of the hall. He called for me to come in, as I went to help I stepped on something. Sure enough it was the "bullet". I called the cops to come and pick it up. The officer gets her to pick it up and tells me that it is a pellet from a high powered Pellet gun. It went through our wall, hit the door, bounced into a mirror on another door in the hall and then all the way down the hallway.
The most amazing part was when it came through the Wall it missed my head by MAYBE 3 inches!! You tell me that the Lord wasn't watching over me. I told DH last night that I am going to write a book now, How I almost died putting on my Underwear. LOL Seriously, I don't think that whoever did it was trying to get me. I have a feeling it was someone that lives in the apartment directly behind our house/fence and I think "he" learned just how deadly a pellet gun can be. I do know that the officer told "him" that I was very close to being hit. I don't expect it to ever happen again.It is hard to believe something so tiny could be deadly.
** God's protection**
**Safety of my children**
**Getting safely dressed this morning**
**Being able to tell the neighbor's about God's protection when they saw just how close it was to hitting me**

We are still working on my studio, man what a project!! We are really excited to get it done. It is going to be heavenly to have everything in it's place. I know I will probably change a few things after it is done. LOL
DH had a wonderful Father's Day! He is very thankful to be a father. We have both lost our dads, so we don't have anyone else to celebrate with. If you still have your dad I hope you let him know how much you love and appreciate him.
**Our children, they were long awaited blessings**
**My son's imagination!! Last night he was a Wonder Pet. He even wanted to sleep in his cape. LOL**

Here is a birthday card using The TAC stamp set Blossom Builders, a set that will retire after June the 20th. I really like to make my own patterned paper with all the different images in this set. (Farewell old friend. *sniff* LOL) I used a bunch of different Pallete inks to make this card real festive. (Paris Lights, Chartreuse, Cote d'Azure, Claret, Violete and Boudoir Blush are the inks.)
Hailey gets her cast off tomorrow- woo hoo!! (It has not slowed her down at all. AND she is still climbing. The only thing is she doesn't climb on the rocker/recliner she fell from when she broke her elbow.)

Big on Fun 2 (<--Click for details)
TAC has Limited Edition sets available until June 16. These are miniature versions of current stamp sets. These tiny stamp sets are so much fun to play with. And with a $30 merchandise purchase you can have them for only $2.95 each. So when is the last time you got a stamp set for less than 3 bucks?
I used the Mini ornamentals from the Big on Fun 2 promo to make this masculine card. You know I say it every time- I struggle with manly cards. LOL BUT, this one was very easy for me to do. AND I am pleased with the outcome. LOL The Mini ornamentals are perfect for masculine and vintage cards and scrapbook layouts.
Card stock- Natural white and Brown (TAC)
Ink- Palette Burnt Umber
Stamps- Big on Fun 2 Mini Ornamentals
My card is very simple- a little paper tearing and edge inking. Really very simple and not at all frufru- perfect for a man. LOL
Last week I added a little tracker to my side bar----> see the one with the lady bugs? I can not believe there has been people from all around the world check in. How cool is that?!? If you haven't taken a minute to watch it scroll through the list, please do so. I am so amazed! It really is a small world.
A good little mama that rocks her babies to sleep----
(See the top of her little cast? Even with a broken arm she takes good care of her little ones. And she is such a good rocker too that she puts herself to sleep too. LOL)

I can not wait to see more!!! Just think 3 weeks from tomorrow we can start ordering from the new catalogue!! (And just think I still don't have everything on my wish list from this one. LOL)
My mom starts Chemo on the 9th. Because of her kidney disease it took a little while to come up with a treatment for her. Please pray that she will not become discouraged, and the the chemo will reduce the cancer in size so they can remove it.
Hailey will get her cast off on Thursday. She has started using it as a weapon, so I am positive that Brother will be glad once it is gone. She has done so well, I know she is wanting back in the sand box and tub. And we have been waiting to get them a small pool so she can splash around too.
** My DH, he is God's perfect gift!!**
** An awesome Sunday School class**
