Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day -

A quick post today, we are BBQ later today and I was not planning it - so I am running around like a crazy person... Hubby got a new "pit" and so he was excited to use it - I'll try and get a photo of it... SERIOUS pit man!

I thought today I would show a card that I made last month for the Stampavie Newsletter. Many of you may have seen it there - so sorry if it is a "re-run" for you. But I just had to put it here on my blog too ;0) -

Funny this is one of my favorite Leere Aldrich images ... I don't like coffee.. LOL, but I just love coloring this image - I think it is that little table and chairs - I wish I had a set like that for my patio. I have colored with my Copics, and doodled the edges. The papers are Bazzil card stock, bling and dotted swiss, with a small piece of DCWV Nana's Nursery pattern. The scallop border is from Martha Stewart. Now those ribbons... are they perfect or what!! I nearly screamed when I saw them at JoAnn's - I think they were made for this image.. actually they were designed by Debbie Mum for her line of products, but hey they really do match this one well too - And the sentiment is a perfect Leere Aldrich sentiment for two girlfriends having a chat over a cup of coffee!


I do hope you have a great Monday - Memorial Day here in the States. Take time to think about someone that has serves your country - past, present or future -

HUGS and-
