TSTR #66-Pink Lemonade(Thank You)

A lovely summer inspiration photo!

Hi there!

I did some more card therapy last night.  This card is for the challenge over at The Shabby Tea Room. I made this card for my boss.  She let me leave early this past week to visit with my Mom.  She truly is a sweet and kind boss.  I'm now on vacation for the next two weeks.  We were to go to Myrtle Beach this week, but had to cancel due to Mom's condition.   Instead of basking in the sun we are painting a bedroom.  And, I can also visit with my Mom.  She comes first, and she gave us quite a scare last week.  Anyways, I'm happy that she is doing better, and I so thank you for the thoughts and prayers for her.  It is appreciated!  Thanks for visiting here today.  Take care!:-))
