Yard work

It has been a beautiful weekend and I actually got a bit of yard work done. I must admit Ray does most of it these days..I have been revamping the big flower bed added quite a few new perennials this spring and it is looking good. We have two big global cedars at the base of the deck. My job has always been to clip them and round them up. Well the deer have been making lunch out of most of the cedars the last few winters and we thought these were finished but I trimmed them up and think we will give them another chance. I have most of my swaps done for convention. The ones I signed up for are done so now I can just do general swaps. We leave one week tomorrow time is flying. Happy stamping!!!

Autumn Days

I needed to mail something to one of my customers the other day so off to my room and quickly made this card. Once again I used Autumn Days (115452) I think my favorite set from the new book. I used the new in colors Soft Suede. Dusty Durango, and Crushed Curry all stamped on plain white, used the Photo Corner punch(109042) as well with Dusty Durango paper.
I have one of my granddaughter here for a few days she has taken advantage of Grandma's room. She is old enough that I don't have to be with her constantly so has surprised me with some very cute idea's. Really nice when they are old enough to clean the stamps and put things away where they were.. We have also taken lots of pictures so I will have photo's for scrapbooking..
Enjoy this beautiful weather that we have been having. July seems to be flying by...
