The Colors of Summer.....PPA206








The colors at Pals Paper Arts this week are so bright and summery! And our summer has started with a bang -  literally!  I have had lots of questions about yesterday's post (read it here) so I thought I would clear a few things up. 

Yes our pontoon boat broke down two days in a row and we drifted along until help arrived - thank Heaven for cell phones!  The throttle has been repaired and we have been assured - again - that all is well. Guess we will find out this weekend.  I will be packing extra food and a cell phone charger....just in case......

And yes lightning struck!  My son was cleaning up around the camp and had started a pile of stuff to go to the dump. A storm blew in and lightning struck that pile - note the charred handle on the shovel. It traveled to the window shattering it and leaving the glass a greeny blue color.  It also blew apart a bag of recyclables. The glass bottles were intact but the cans in the bag look like they were peppered by a shotgun.  The circuit breakers blew and the bedroom TV was fried.  But except for one traumatized dog (poor Silas) all is well - we were lucky!  




And as for that Stampin' Up! order......I just closed my eyes when the total popped up and hit submit!




I used Sweetie Pie Frames for the sentiment and to frame that cute little flower in the Hello There hostess set.

First, beautiful card, Linda! It is so summery and fun! And, I have learned to always have a SU cattie with me on any event, too! I appreciate your wisdom and hope the pontoon holds out! And, so happy no one was hit with that lightning. Egads!
