What's Cookin Good Lookin!

Summer is coming and guess what a lot of people are going to be doing this weekend! You guessed it BBQ. I can't wait. Not that we don't use our grill. We grill all year round. DH is a meat and potatoe guy. After working so hard in the yard, he wants to relax and sink his teeth into a Brontosauraus burger or steak. Anyways.

Just Lovely for MUM!

I am totally hooked on these colors lately ( Copic R59 Cardenal, YR07 Cadmium orange,& G99 Olive) I have colored so many things these colors and I had a blast playing with the copics and filling in this cool stamp that I have had for years. I have noticed that ever since I was turned on my SU! All of the neat stamps that I bought over the years have taken a back seat. Well Now I have been going back to see what I have and what cool things that I can color in with the copics. Just lovely!

The gift card is the way to go. I made a pocket inside for it. There won't be any problems here with pink pink since she is a pink nut.

You are so Beautiful!

Wow! Have you ever have a conversation about someone and find out in the conversation that the person was so private that no-one knew that they were ill and then find out that a week or so they passed away. Again Wow! I just found out that one of my father's friends passed away with lymphoma and no one knew. I am just blown away. Last month they just had a new arrival. the first gran baby too. I thought that I would make a bright sympathy card for them. Jan was a beautiful ,bright, always said what was on her mind. Fitting huh! Sorry for the bad news but it is a cheery card.
