Great Friend

Hello there!  Hope you've had a great weekend!  We have just came home from a weekend at the cabin!  Beautiful weather and we had s much fun!

If you haven't voted yet I would love it if you voted for my card (if you like it) for Reader's Choice the top 2 will be published in Paper Crafts Jan/Feb issue!  You can vote for my cute froggy card here!

Today I have a card to share using one of my favorite stamps!  

I love this rose trio stamp from Pattern Hearts and Flowers by Hero Arts, and I know I am not the only one! Lots of heat embossing on this card! Here I embossed in white on the solid papers and the leaves with a pattern paper from the 6 by 6 pad.  I stamped the zig zag background with wet cement ink by HA!


We really had a great weekend at the cabin!  We were there with a whole bunch of family 8 cousins in total!  The kids really had a great time.  We spent the day at the beach yesterday it was so hot and we really enjoyed swimming and afterwards just hung out.  Had a bonfire and made smores!  Not sure how come I end up eating more than the kids!  I couldn't get a perfect smore so I had to keep trying you know!  :>  A bunch of the kids slept in the camper (I do not, I sleep in the cabin :>) and you know how much fun that is for them!  Something new is the canoe so the kids got to ride in it!  Boy did they ever love it! It rained today so I didn't get a chance but I can't wait till next time to try it out!  Here's a cute photo of Carter and his best friend and cousin Cameron (boy do they ever love each other!)

I also have a photo to share from last weekend when we were at the cabin with just Chad's parents.  Ariel saw a bird hit the window and when we went outside it was sitting there probably stunned!  We all just sat there and stared at the bird for a bit!  Thankfully he flew away a bit later, just needed a breather and we enjoyed it!


Here's another cute photo of my two, Ariel set up a little spot for her and Carter to have dessert:

We came home late this afternoon as it was raining and the kids were wiped!  The only thing about sleeping with your cousins is you hardly sleep!  We enjoyed a nice evening just relaxing and watching a movie!  

That's it for me!  I hope to catch up with all of you!  :>

What a different card - never would have used such earthy colors for flowers, but it sure works. Great design, too. Thanks for sharing the great pix of your great summer.
