I know I know!!!

I have been told looking at my stale blog is Freaking Boring! Thanks DIANNE! NOOOOO she didn't say it like that but she did mention she has been visiting only to be let down DAILY or probably every 10 days by now! Well I really have no excuse except summer has gotten a hold of us and we're in the thick of it! But we're having fun and I spent a couple weeks putting my house in order it had gotten a bit out of control at the end of the school year and needed to be cleaned up! And not just one floor of it with all the junk going to another floor until the guests left! I so suck about that. We had a Birthday party for Em which everyone enjoyed I hope. We had a horrible storm and my brand new Grill was airborne for a brief moment before crashing to the ground, luckily it still works. I am for once in the last 8 years completely caught up with laundry and in the middle of pricing all the crap that came out of my attic for a garage sale! Oh I'm sorry pricing all the TREASURES from my attic for a garage sale this weekend. The kids are just being kids and playing their little hearts out! They thought washing all the stuff that came out of the attic over the weekend with warm soapy water and a rag was a SUPER game! HA We did have a great 4th. Em was in the parade so we were up at 6:30 am and all napped midday before heading out to fireworks that night! I got some AWESOME firework photos I have to load them up and share! So that's it in a nutshell I'm sure I'm missing something but for now that will do.

Here are some cards I made recently. Using OddBird Planet stamps 3 French Hens with Berets for the first one and the Three Bubble Topiary stamp for the second one! Hope everyone is doing well and I promise to do some blog hopping to see what everyone is up to just as soon as the garage sale is over this weekend! No more neglect!

That "Fabulous" stamp is one of my favorites and I adore how you used it on your card! The colors and doodling are, well, fabulous! :-)

Very clever use of the bubble topiary.

I love your use of colors on those french hens. Inspiring. Thanks!

The way you used the bubble topiary is brilliant and kind of reminds me of lanterns.

Both cards are fabulous.

It's nice to see some new blog content from you, but I do understand how time flies.
