Oh my! I have had a baby congrat's card on the go for about 3 weeks now. By the time I get it sent the kid will be a year old.
On the busy side we have been trying to organize a move....which is not going very well. Seems there are problems at every turn. Somebody trying to tell us something? Wish we would have know before we bought the lot!!! Anyhow....I am sure things will work out for the best in the end. Who am I kidding....no I am not sure of that!!!
I have also been busy with canning, pickling and freezing stuff from the garden. Hopefully I will get back in the swing of things in Sept.
Anyhow here ya go Janet! Tis all I have done for awhile.
Hope everyone else out there is doing well!

This card was almost entirely done with cut outs from my silhouette. I put the 2nd one in to show you the way the wings are put on. "She" has a little rhinestone necklace on. I had to fashion the black beak head part myself. The background sky is from a piece of paper that I had and copied it so I can change the color of the sky as suited to the other colors I am using. You can't really tell from the picture that the entire dark blue flourish is covered with sparklies. Yup! That was a create more work for yourself opportunity! On one side of the cut out there was a little bit from the back of the paper that was not at all like the front. And wouldn't you know it that is the side I started to glue face up!!! So now I can't turn it over because it has glue on it right? So had to carry on with the glue and put loose glitter on it. Some sticks some gets all over the inside of the envelope and is generally here there and wherever on the card itself.
And off to the great white north, ok so it was July and it wasn't that white!!! To Lance's sister and her husbands 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration. The weather was great, aside from the mosquito's being a tad on the nasty side. And the company was wonderful!!! We were really happy to be able to be there with them.
This card was for Lance's Uncle Rod. Who as you can see turned 85 in July! I used a Bugaboo digi image by Jodee. Just love that "Gus" Made him into a bit of an old farmer. The Die cut is one of spellbinders. The wheat and the rake are cut out on my Silhouette also the Happy 85th. Colored with copics.
It was our friends big anniversary party June 16th. This is a Mo's Digital Image. Flowers are from Wild Orchid. I have used a Martha Stewart punch for the loopy things in the back ground. The flourish is one from Cheery Lynn Designs. The Happy 50th was cut out with my silhouette. Colored with copics. Mind you it may have been their 50th anniversary but you won't catch these 2 sitting on a park bench!
