Thinking of you

Well it is just gorgeous out side today!! I was in bed by 2:30 am and up by 8:am, did 2 loads of laundry, grocery shopped, walked the dog, visited my 92 year old neighbor, we watch a 11 am cooking show together :), and she cooks for me every Sat. mowed the lawn, raked, went to 4 yard sales, got great stuff and spent 5 dollars, yahoooo!! mopped my floors, cleaned the bathroom and vacuumed and now it is 4:30pm. I can say I had a most productive day.
I work with an engineer who's mother is a retired school teacher who is now a teachers assistant. I had made some treats for her kids and they sent me the biggest and cutest thank you poster. Well this is one of the sets of cards I am making for her to send out to other people.

Stamp "Thinking of you" by Justrite, stamping up design paper that my secret sister sent me :). I gold embossed this, did the white center panel by running through the cuttle bug with my swiss folder, "love my cuttle bug, cut the image out with my nesties large oval, "got to love those nesties". Have a great weekend
God Bless You All

Lovely, is the one word that comes to mind. I like the gold embossing along with the CB embossing. For some reason I feel like have some tea with a china cup and saucer when I look at this. Great feel to it.

Lovely, lovely, lovely! wonderful card!
My goodness you have been one busy bee getting so much done and still finding time to visit with friends.....Keeps us young, right? I mowed the entire yard in an hour (record time especially with taking 3 breaks due to the heat), Usually my hubby & I share, but he had a procedure on Friday and is out of commission for a week.Then laundry, which I hang on the line, household chores, shower, hair wash etc. Then off to my uplines to get ready for tomorrows Stamp Camp of 12. Was already to leave when it poured and stormed so stayed until it cleared enough to drive, came home & made my husband's supper. Busy day, but your's takes the prize for accomplishment, my friend!
Have a blessed Sunday, Becky!
