Happy Birthday!


I hope you are all doing well on this hot and humid Thursday!  We had storms roll through last night.  Happily the more severe weather passed to the north of us with a tornado warning.  It seems this summer there have been several of those.  Our electric flicked off and on for a second and so happy that it stayed on.

Anyways, enough about the weather for I'd like to share with you a card that I made for a friend's birthday.  The sunflower images are from Pretty Pink Posh.  It was easy to put together.  The main work was coloring the sunflowers with copic markers.  We hope to get to the sunflower field near us soon.  We visited last year for the first time and really enjoyed the beauty!

Not much else is going on here.  We did manage to paint our bedroom last weekend and do a good cleaning.  We've been wanting to that and am happy that it's done.  Next job is to finish this office/craft area.  Our son is coming up this weekend to finish the closet with my husband.  Always projects to do around the house.  We're looking forward to taking a break soon to get away for vacation...can't wait!

Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by!  I always appreciate your support!  Take care and have a wonderful weekend!

Thinking of You...

Hi, Friends!

I made a couple of cards before our camping trip with a few stamp/die set from Altenew.  The flower image was colored with copics.  The background was made by using distress ink.  The sentiment is from The Greetery.  

I'm entering this card over at a new challenge...Simply Clean & Simple.

I have another card in different colors...

I'm entering this card over at The Flower Challenge.

We had a great time camping at one of our favorite camping spots at Maumee Bay State Park.  We took our dog, Sheila, with us.  We were hoping that she would be better this time for this is her third time out camping.  Our prayers were answered, yeah!  She barked less and she was less anxious in the truck on the way there and on the way home.  She is our little camping buddy!

I thank you so much for taking the time to drop by today!  I hope you have a wonderful week!
Take care, hugs!!

Happy Birthday!

Hi, Friends!

How are you doing on this fine Monday?  The temps are rising again along with the humidity.  It's been crazy with the up and down weather around here.  It was barely in the 70's yesterday and tomorrow it will be in the high 80's.  Oh, well!  At least the sun is shining, which makes for a good day to walk the dog.  

I'd like to share with you a card I made for my friend, Linda.  Her birthday will be in September, but I thought I'd get an early start.  There are a lot of birthdays in September with friends and family.  For my card, I started with a white card base and used a new frame die from PTI along with design paper from Divinity Designs.  The butterfly and flower images are from MFT and were colored with copics.   I'm entering this card over at NBUS Challenge.

We plan to relax and do a few days of camping this week after working hard around the house last week.  We had some friends over on Saturday for a barbeque.  The weather didn't cooperate and we wanted to play corn hole, but we'll have to do it another time.  It was a great time visiting and enjoying the delicious food.  It certainly makes one clean up around the house inside and out before company comes over, lol!  

Ok, that's all for now.  I hope you have a wonderful week!  Take care and thanks so much for dropping by today!
