Happy 4th Everyone!

I don’t really have anything to post today but I wanted to tell everyone Happy 4th of July! What a beautiful day it is here in Michigan. The weather is perfect…no rain clouds in sight – or predicted so far:)

I hope you all have great things planned for the day. Family barbecues are usually the biggie but today we are going to take a drive and go watch the fireworks out on Lake St Clair. We’ve done this in the past and it’s always awesome. We go to a little bar/restaurant with umbrella tables that sit out on a deck. About 200ft off the water and have dinner and cocktails while we ooh and aah over the beauty of the fireworks:) Don’t you just love the sounds everybody makes while they watch fireworks:)

Before I forget, I just came across a new blog IMPRESSIONS ARE MADE HERE where Andrea does absolutely beautiful work. She is offering a blog candy right now if you visit her before July 12. It’s well worth the visit just to see her creations…so stop on by and take time to look around. Here is a picture of everything one lucky person is going to win…and I’m crossing my fingers:)

Well, I have to go pack up the cooler and get a move on.

Hugz,

Time To Spread Some Sweetness!

Hello Friends,

You need to check out SASI at http://www.tayloredexpressions.blogspot.com/ where they are giving away great blog candy.  While you are there take the time to check out all of their cupcake stamps because they are just too cute not to.  They also have new sayings for holiday tags that are great.  It only takes a click of your mouse to check them out…but make sure you do it before Sunday Morning to get in on the give-away!  Good luck to all….but I would like to win this one myself lol, thank you very much.

Hugz 🙂

Blog Candy Alert!!!

I have come across a new blog for Karin http://karinhoeve.blogspot.com/ where she is having birthday card and Christmas card challenges.  It sounds like great fun to me, even though I never get in on challenges.  I’m hoping it will motivate me to have some cards on hand when I need them.  Here is the sketch for her first card challenge and her take on it.  She will be posting her sketch on Mondays and if you enter twice in a month your name will go into a drawing for a small prize.  I hope some of you will join me and also decide to participate in her challenge.


Right now Karin is also holding a blog candy until Monday, October 13 for a wonderful WoJ holiday stamp along with embellishments and paper.  Good luck to all…but I hope to win ~smile~.

Well, these are the best I could do with pics of this card.  The pictures aren’t so great but I did try (it is almost 3:00 am too so maybe that’s part of the problem).  The card looks much better in person, which is why I took 2 pictures trying to show you all of the colors of polka dots on the DP.  Very cool paper…

Hugz 🙂
