Hello everyone,
First of all I want to thank you all for coming back to my blog, even though I have hardly posted in July. Life has been very busy with visitors. So I have not taken the time to stamp. We have been doing things with our family. On Wednesday we went to Vancouver to see the CELEBRATION OF LIGHT. Spain had the show, and it was awesome. Today we went to Harrison Lake for the day, and had lots of fun. The guys and kids have been fishing and swimming. On Sunday we want to go to Victoria. I myself have only been there once before, so I would love to hear some recommendation on where to go, what to see, etc. They are leaving Monday evening. So, life will go back to normal. It is going to be very empty after a month of visiting. I am sorry we live so far from family. It is hard when you only get to see them once or twice a year.
Looking forward to checking out all your blogs too.
Have a great weekend!!

Hi there,
I am so sorry not to be able to post. In my last post I told you that my Sister and Family were on there way here. Well, what can I say? It has been so busy! I have hardly had a chance to think, to check my email, haven't checked any of your creations either. My sis and family are leaving middle of next week and on Sat 21st my 2 SIL's and their families are coming. They are leaving on the 31st. So I will not have a chance to post till probably August, which seems to be empty. I want to work on things to sell at a craft fair. Would love to receive comments on suggestions on what to make for a craft sale.

How is your summer going? Since it has finally arrived with vengance and heat, it has been flying by. We are expecting Family to arrive in the next few days. My sister is driving up from Mexico with 3 of her kids. I pray they will have a safe trip through the scorching heat in the States! So, we have been busy getting ready to see them.
I came upon this card the other day and it just called out to me. As you may know, one of my favorite techniques is the cracked glass. And I just had to use the retired Provencal set. I used my ww pencils and blending pen to color the image. The paper I took from the color I had used in the image. So, since I am using retired stuff I thought I'd make it a "retired" card for most of the parts. Cardstock: Confetti white, Mellow Moss, Perfect Plum, Marigold Morning (retired), Chocolate Chip. For the "ticket punch" I used a round hole punch, since I do not have the ticket punch. For the words I used Around the Block, also retired. I stamped the background with French Script, also retired. Accesories: Gold brads, eyeledts and Gold Cord, retired.
Have a great day!
