Sweet Summer


While the sun is reminding me that summer is soon to end, this card was made to celebrate summer!  I made it to feel fresh and "sweet".

The watermelon slice and sentiment is from the {ippity} set, "New Season, New Wonder".  Below is a close-up of the melon:


Isn't it scrumptious?  I thought you'd agree!

The ribbon is a 3GirlJam Crinkle Ribbon from the Hot/Cold bundle.  The color may be "Ice Blue", but it screams Fruity Caribbean beverage to me!




So, like I said in the opening sentence, the summer is soon to part us...We, the dogs and I, went on another walk again after work while Dave biked, and by the time we got back to the car (just after 8 pm), it was already almost dark! Sigh.

But hey, here's a picture of my sweet muddy pups in the car ready to come home (for a beer)!

A great reminder of summer. It was 46 degrees here this morning! I mailed out your blog candy on Wed.
Your card is definitely scrumptious! That set is on my long wish list. It is perfectly refreshing for summer. Your doggies are darling sitting in the car! Love it! :)
Great card! Love the crinkled ribbon!

Warm Little Sweetness

I must admit that I have become quite fond of making little bitty sweaters.   It all started on a recent trek to India traveling for business. I needed to carry just enough yarn to keep my busy bee hands occupied during the evenings in my hotel room. There are just so many hats a person can make, right?  Anyway, having limited quantities of yarn, I decided to give a small sweater a go.  This is the first one I created. I had just the perfect little buttons to add! (It really is amazing what one might find in their cosmetic bag) I love it.  This sweater is also featured on the Pinque Peacock blog   since I used her buttons.  (Go visit and see the buttons up close) This makes the sweater a really one of a kind project! This next one is perfect for a little preemie.  It's so tiny, but features a great big snowflake! Close up of the snowflake…. I also sewed on one of the StampinUp! Frosted Finishes Embellishments.  I think it finished it off nice

Precious Boy

A quiet, misty morning walk in late March 2012. This little precious boy puts a smile on my face every time I look at him. I mean, really, who wouldn't smile like there's no tomorrow at this little guy?  I love him.  Every. Little. Thing. He almost (ALMOST) competes with my husband. My sweet husband with a similar expression.  What do YOU think?

Pour Vous

I finally took the opportunity to put together a couple little gifts this afternoon while my husband was once again slaving for the man on a Saturday afternoon. This is a little bag that holds a necklace I made for my daughter. For once I can honestly say that this was NOT difficult to create. Here's a close-up. Next up is the photo of the address label. I just LOVE decorating the OUTSIDE too. It just makes opening up the surprise package all that more exciting.
