We've been to three weddings already this summer and with another one this month! We won't be able to attend this one as we will be out of town, but here is the card I made for the young couple...

I used Kazan's Sketch #6 for this card.

100 Degrees!

When the temperature hits 100 degrees, what do you do for fun? Well we dig out a "bucket" of some sort and put water in it to play with!!! Ethan had a wonderful time playing in the water in the heat of the day! Thank goodness our deck has a covering and ceiling fans or I would have been in the "bucket" of water with him!!

What would we do without our friends? This card will be going out to a friend soon...just a reminder that I value her and our friendship.

My card is based on this weeks sketch by Kazan at 2Sketches4You. If you haven't checked out their blog, do it soon!!

Materials: MM "Cheeky" pp's, scrap ribbon, Fiskars threading water punch, Dollar Store chipboard flower, K & Co "Friend"

I really thought that having DGS around this week would pretty much keep me from any card making....but he takes a really long nap from 11 am - 2 pm! So as soon as he dozes off, I head to my scraproom!

Here are a couple of cards that I was able to make...

Materials: PP from scraps, Bazzill, ribbon scraps, MM brads

Materials: Prima's, Inkadinkadoo flourish stamp, Hero Arts sentiment, Daisy Bucket pp for pinwheels, MM flower brad, Queen & Co brad

Happy Birthday

We celebrated DH's birthday yesterday. Of course DGS stole the show, but that's what 2 year olds do right?

Here he is trying to sit still so Nana can get a picture! This was about the fourth try before he ran off! LOL!

Later in the day he was trying out his "cool" look....

He's going to be staying with us for the next you might be seeing quite a bit of him!!

Beautiful Day

It's a perfectly beautiful summer day here in Southern Oregon! Today is DH's b-day and the kids are coming for the weekend!

I made this card for a special friend's upcoming b-day and it has a long way to travel before she gets it! I was inspired by this week's sketch at 2Sketches4You! If you haven't visited this blog, you are really missing out!

MME Wild Asparagus CS, scrap CS, Prima's, Pebbles Inc rub-on, MM brads. TFL!
