Tropical Summer

Well....that's what it will sure feel like for tomorrow. They are forecasting roughly 92-93 degrees before the heat index. With it, 100-102+ degrees - can you say HOT!!!!!! Although I really shouldn't complain because it has taken so long for summer to finally get here : )

I haven't been posting alot lately, hoping to change that this long holiday weekend. Nothing special planned, and if it remains hotter then a you know what, I will camp out in the a/c house making cards!!

Still not sure if I am 100% happy with this card or not. I guess I envisioned it a little differently then what it actually came out to be.

I had a great time last Saturday w/my BFF's scrapping and gossiping! I think we each only made about 3 cards after catching up and exchanging 'stories', but that's ok! We have been taking turns at each others house for a day every other month and I really enjoy it. I am the next 'host' and can't wait for the girls to come here! Suppose I should clean up my scrap room huh???

Well, I hope you like the card and please feel free to comment if you like. I always enjoy hearing them : ) Hope to see you back here real soon!!

Mary, Mary...........

Mary, Mary, quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells, and cockle shells,
And pretty maids all in a row

This weeks newest image from Designed 2 Delight is "Mary, Mary". Isn't she just adorable tip-toein thru the garden watering her flowers? I hope you had a chance to go get her and make a card, so that you get next weeks image free!! If not, don't worry...just hop on over to Faith's store and pick her up.

Here is my 'spin' on this weeks image:

Masculine Cards~NO flowers

This weeks challenge @ Designed 2 Delight Card Ideas, is to create a Masculine Card with NO flowers . With Father’s Day approaching, we would like to see a creation for that special guy in your life. This is not limited to Father’s Day cards only. Feel free to make a Love, Birthday, Thinking of You, etc. card/creation.

This is one of the creations I have made so far. I still have 3 more to make yet - YIKES!! I have to make cards for my dad, my father-in law, my step father-in law and my son - WHEW!!! And Faith's masculine images pretty much have me covered!! The image I used on this one is "Catch of the Day"

You really must check out the wonderful masculine images - they are FAB!!!
I must tell you a quick story! My husband will be going on his yearly fishing trip up north in a couple of weeks. So I have been accompanying him to various stores to get ready for his trip. On a recent trip to Mill's Fleet Farm, - they had a canoe in the middle of the aisle with marked down fishing supplies. At first I was like"Great...he will be here looking thru this pile of 'crap' forever". Then as I was wading thru the pile I came across the tiny spinner blades that I used on my card. And all of a sudden~LIGHT BULB~I could use these on my Father's day, masculine cards! BINGO....all of a sudden that pile was like gold. My husband just shook his head and laughed at me when I told him what I was going to do with them. I actually walked out of the store with more fishing items them him...LOL!

I hope you like it, and will to post the rest soon! Till then...........
