Happy Birthday Bill

Good morning to you all. My husband had a birthday on the 21 of June and this is the card that I made for him. Happy Birthday, Honey! It is from Gina K and is called Quite a Catch. Isn't it funny? Love her lips :) The paper is from Gina K as well. Of course I used my Copics to color her.

Our week here was cooler than normal and today is rainy. Our grandson came on Thursday evening and is leaving today. We were so busy. Aaron is 6 and full of energy. Yesterday was absolutely beautiful and we went to the puppy park for a couple of hours in the afternoon. Aaron did more running than the puppies. I don't think there was one dog that he didn't play with. He had so much fun! When we got home I had a tired little boy as well as a tired puppy on my hands. Such a nice problem to have, yes? We still had to eat dinner and go for our walk. Oh and the most important thing, eat ice cream

Miss You

Good morning! Another Saturday rolls around and our day will be busy. Have to go to buy birdseed for our birds. We enjoy watching them outside our kitchen window. Believe it or not, that is one reason I have not pushed for a craft room. I love to be in the kitchen and watching the birds when I craft.

Today's card was made for a friend that I am not seeing near as much as I used to. I used the Papertrey Ink anniversary set to make this card. The inks were all Memento inks. I really like the watercolor look to this card. Of all of the anniversary sets that PTI has put out I love this one the best. The butterfly is also from Papertrey and I colored it with my Copics.

Last week I mentioned that I was going to Des Moines IA for our annual stamping get together. Well unfortunately it is over for another year but oh the memories. We had so much fun and laughed and giggled until our sides hurt. Some of the ladies had new techniques to show us, some brought lots of food, some shared new things and everyone contributed. There was considerable lack of sleep but so worth it. Several of us were in the breakfast room at the motel when a lady came up to us and asked if we were rubber stampers. She was from Colorado Springs, CO and was also a stamper. She brought in a box of her cards and we each got to pick out a card she had made. Hi Dee! What a nice lady! Her poor husband said she has so much stuff he barely has room for his Cheerios anymore. Sound familiar? Another man walked into the breakfast room in the evening when we were making some cards and asked if we were Creative Memories ladies. We weren't but the fact that he knew that amazed me.

That's all for today. I want to wish a very happy Father's Day to all the dad's out there. And a very special Father's Day to my wonderful hubby who lets me do so many crazy things and is usually right there in the thick of things with me.

Until next time... Happy trails to you!
