Hi, Friends!

I've been busy around here with different things, but made time to open the June card kit from Simon Says!  It put a big smile on my face with the lovely stamps and pretty!

First, I embossed the stamp image with gold and colored the flowers with copics.  Sequins from Paper Sweeties were added.  The panels were die cut using MFT dies.  I added a ribbon and a strip of gold washi tape at the top of the card.  It came together quickly before I ran a few errands this afternoon.  I was missing my craft room, so making a card today was great fun!

Next up is a card I made for my husband for our 40th anniversary.  Wow!  I can hardly believe it's been forty years!  And, we have never done this before, but we both bought each other the same store bought!  I usually make a card and buy him one.  The card I made him was a bit frilly, but he didn't mind...

Our son, Jeremy set up reservations near where he lives in Columbus at a fabulous restaurant, Refectory.  He bought us a very nice bottle of wine for the celebration.

This beautiful building was converted from a church into a restaurant.  You can see
the lovely stain glass windows in the background.  The food was absolutely delicious!

Well, that's all for now.  Thank you so much for taking the time to drop by today!  Take care and have a great week!
