Oh, Hello Summer.....FMS88







About this past holiday weekend......we had two days of torrential cold rain followed by one picture perfect Monday with clear skies and sunshine.  It was a delightful day - a parade in the morning and a picnic at the lake in the afternoon.  Oh, hello summer - so nice to have you back!


I received so many wonderful e-mails in support of my going gray - thanks for the encouragement! This photo of Emma and me at the parade shows you my lovely orange-y gray do! 



                                    





            Jen Mitchell designed a delightful sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches.

Wow, so many things to love about this card! The way you did the buttons is so cool. I've never seen anything like it and I love it. Your row of stamped chevrons is coloring and stamping perfection, and I love the look of the little spray of rhinestone. Just gorgeous!
