Hello Friends, Hope you are having a great day! If you are visiting me on Thursday August 3rd, it’s indeed my last day of Summer Vacation. Boohoo…..I was having such a great summer I didn’t want it to end, but end it must! Our school year starts tommorrow. I know you are scratching your head and saying on a Friday??? I am too, but whatever! The weekend will be here before you know it! LOL I don’t want to appear ungrateful for the time off, so I will move onto today’s New topping over at Seize the Birthday! The topping is ” Tie One On.”
I had a fabulous time creating this card. This particular MFT guy was colored with my hubby’s help. He was giving me an art lesson and said that the elephant needed to have more variations of color to make him look real. Not sure I am 100% pleased with how he turned out, but I went along with the ART teacher anyways. 😉 The balloon and butterfly are colored pencil too.
The dots were made with a SU stencil. Everything else is MFT.
Now the exciting stuff!
I had the ultimate pleasure last week to meet up with Lesley Croghan the creator of Seize the Birthday while in Canada with my family! She is as lovely and funny as I imagined she would be. I also had the opportunity to meet one of my STB teammates while in Victoria, CA. Glenda, her hubby Karl, and my family and I had a delightful lunch together too. I can’t begin to tell you how much I enjoyed it. They are the nicest and sweetest couple. When the day was done my son said it best, “Canada people are just good people!” I so agree with him! It felt so comfortable and that I had known both of these lovely women for years! My heart is full and I can’t wait to do it again someday! Here are a few photos!Lesley Croghan and IKarl, Dave, Sandra, Ty, Myself and Glenda
