Sizzling Summer Colors

When I was in Des Moines I cut this flower from Memory Box out of gold paper. I was not sure what I was going to do with it but decided to use some summer colors with it so I grabbed my Distress Inks and started blending.  I really liked how the colors turned out.  It is almost magical to watch them blend together.   

I am finishing up a book titled American Wife by Taya Kyle, the wife of the American Sniper, Chris Kyle.  It is very good seeing their life from her side. 

I can't believe it is almost the 4th of July already!  The summer is going way to fast!  What happened to the lazy hazy crazy days of summer????

Until next time, happy trails to you!

Group Gathering, Aaron and Misc

 It has been a busy couple of weeks here.  First on the 3rd, my friend Harriet came from California and stayed with me until Sunday morning.  We spent the majority of our time at Georgia's house stamping.  Harriet is the one with the shopping bag in her hands and Georgia is next to her in the flowered shirt.  On Sunday we went and met up with the rest of our group in DesMoines Iowa for a fun filled 3 days of stamping, laughing, and shopping.  It is an annual affair and we have so much fun!  I got home on Tuesday evening and then on Friday I went to Kansas City MO. for lunch with a friend.  Love Strouds restaurant and well worth the 6 hour drive for lunch! 
 On Sunday my grandson Aaron came to stay with me for a week while he attends Camp Kindness at the Humane Society.  He did this a few years ago and really enjoyed it so he wanted to do it again.  We are having fun so far.  We went to the store today and stocked up on groceries that he wanted.
Last but not least I made this card for Georgia for our card swap this month.  I was happy with the way it turned out.  The flowers are from MFT. and of course a card is not complete without sequins!

Until next time, Happy trails to you
