I don't like to mention when I will be going away because you never know who is out there reading your blog. I was up visiting my father at our family cottage in the Upper Peninsula. It's way up North almost as far as Copper Harbor. I posted pictures last September here on my blog. Take a look back through my old posts and you can see why I think this is one of the most relaxing and beautiful place.
I took a whole suitcase (that I could hardly carry) of stamping things with me to keep me entertained if we had a rainy day. As it was I never opened it up. That means my supply of cards is low but it also means we had the most beautiful weather.
Today's card is an a "just thinking of you" kinda card. I used one of the new SU hostess sets for the flowers and the coordinating punch. The embossing folder is Square Lattice from SU. I used Spellbinders dies, a MS butterfly punch and EK Success border punch. I am in love with the new SU colors, two of which I used on this card- Wisteria Wonder and Pool Party. The darker teal is Not Quite Navy. Did you notice the stick pin in the knot of the ribbon. It was from the ones I made awhile back while I was in Florida.
Not much else to report. My daughter and son-n-law will be here tomorrow from North Carolina and I have a few things to take care of before they get here. I swear there aren't enough hours in a day. Either I am getting older and moving a bit slower or I am just busier than I have ever been. This whole crazy thing of working full time really cuts into my hobbies. I should be knocking on wood because I am very fortunate to have such a good job and I don't know where we would be if I didn't have it. I guess I just want the best of both worlds- who doesn't.
