Many Happy Hello's

Just pretty much have a card today. The kids and I are trying to finish reading our batch of books today for the summer reading program so we can go in and get some more.

Card size is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4. I got this daisies stencil from HL. I just loved the flowers on it but didn't know how good it would look on paper. It looks like a stamp! I use this stencil all the time on envelopes and am lovin' it on this card! It was less than $2 and there are 5 different flowers on it. Can't beat that deal!

  • MME Wild Asparagus patterned paper
  • red, white CS
  • Just Smile (TAC) stamp set
  • Delta 'Daises' stencil
  • Colorbox Warm Red chalk ink
  • Marvy Mega scalloped circle, SU Word window punches
  • Icicle stickles
  • pop dots, push pin, sponge
I called yesterday about the photography displays at our county fair. The fair isn't until mid August but I am going to enter some of my pictures so I need to start thinking now about which ones I want to put in. It is going to be so hard to choose! There are 8 categories and I am only allowed 1 picture per category. The categories are:
3-Humor (have the perfect one for this!!!!)
5-Flowers (I think I know the one I'm putting here)
6-Miami County (something from around our area)
7-Black and White
I got a funny picture a few weeks ago while I was leaving town. It was a big 'ole John Deere tractor parked in the parking lot of a Home Depot! It didn't turn out 'fair worthy' but I'd love to get another one just like that only better quality.

Anyway, I think I am going to raid my MIL's pool today to cool off. High of 89 here today. Hope everyone else stays cool!!! See ya!

Just wanted to tell you the card is just beautiful. Seeing that you did it with a stencil gives me a good reason to get my stencils out that I have collected and use them. Thanks for the inspiration.

Wow...that stencil worked out great for your card! Your card is awesome, by the way! Love the colors, paper, ribbon....yea...everything. ;)

You'll do well at the fair, I'm sure! Good luck!!
