Wishing You...

Hi Friends!

Are ya staying COOL?!  Whew, a hot day again for another
day or two!  I so hope it cools down for Sunday because we plan
to take my Mom to a concert in the park! 

The exciting news around here is that Obama made an unplanned
stop here in our town yesterday at our little restaurant!!!  And, darn
it, we didn't even get to see him!  We were out shopping and
went to a movie.  Obama also made a stop at one of our
orchards nearby.  I won't go into what my political views
are, but I think having the president stop in our town is exciting!

Ok, now on to my card.  This card is for my sis to celebrate
their anniversary.  I used paper from DCWV.  I just love
this paper for summer cards, so pretty!   I used three different punches,
gems, and pearls to brighten up the card.  Ribbon, pearl cotton, and
sewing to finish off this creation.  Thanks so much for dropping by
today, take care!


Paper:  DCWV, Kraft Outlet
Stamp:  Verve
Ink:  SU(Lucky Limeade)
