Good Morning! Thanks for stopping by today!
I hate to put up a rainy card. It's been such great weather around here! I don't want to jinx it! But I have had this card done since I went away...so it's time to go up. My friend, Peggy got this stamp free in her High Hopes order. It's one of their most recent releases. Too bad it had to come in the order that she place back in February that she just got from them a couple of weeks ago!!! Well, if you have ordered from High Hopes you know how frustrating it can be....so I won't add fuel to the fire. ;) Their images are just so dang CUTE, though!! Peggy also used her "real cloud" maker to demonstrate the the whole cloud thing for me. It does look better than my homemade cloud maker template...because it varies the scallop sizes...but my homemade one is working for me for now. I asked her to use Bordering Blue ink to make them. Bordering Blue is a gray-ish blue and I thought it would be best for rain clouds. I used crystal effects on the rain drop. I don't know if the close up is showing it.
Any plans for the long weekend? We are headed down to our house on the Cape. All the times that I said I was going to go before, I didn't. SO I have not been down there since February...just after we bought it! But I have to go down and survey what needs to still be purchased before the first renters come. I went out last night and bought some appliances: Blender, coffee maker, toaster, iron...etc... Of course, Hubby's heart missed a few beats when he found out the cost. I love my husband, and he is only 44...but sometimes you'd think he was 84!! He has no idea how much things cost these days. And is usually counting out prices from 1980. My poor husband. LOL! Hehehehee....he will be poor when I am done! LOL! That's what he's afraid of. And probably rightfully so! heheheheheheee! Anyhoooooo, the weather is suppose to be great this weekend. Not beach weather...but still a nice weekend! We are bringing the dogs down for the first time. Penny, the Lhasa Apso, doesn't like car rides...hopefully she won't get sick in my car...that plus kids will be a bad thing!! Especially if Guinness, the German Shepherd, starts to get excited. All the while my hubby will be driving down in his truck, in silence...probably enjoying the radio! Hmmmmm....maybe I should volunteer to drive his truck! LOL!

Have a Resplendent Weekend!!

I wanted to stop over and thank you so very much for taking the time to post your kind comments on my blog, earlier. I really appreciate them! I took a few minutes to browse your blog...your cards are gorgeous! So many beautiful details on each one. I'll also give your idea for the cloud template a try! Mine will never look as good as yours, but I do appreciate you sharing! Thanks!

Oh my Word!! This little ant is just so unexpectedly adorable! I fight with ants here in TX ... fire ants with firey little hineys hiked up in the air .... and they mean firey business! So to have an ant image cause a chuckle ... that's a huge compliment! Love your awesome umbrella as well!
