Yes, I made a Halloween card. I did a challenge over at Splitcoast that wanted something with big eyes and I came up with this cute spider. (if you can call a spider "cute".) LOL

Thank You for Being Such a Ray of Sunshine in My Life

 I don't know where I got this hummingbird die cut from but I think a friend sent it to me. She sent me a few and I just thought I would color them for certain challenges and this color challenge was red/yellow/blue so here is my card.

It's Memorial Day in the US today and we are just relaxing by our pool. We had friends visiting last week from FL and we went hiking to waterfalls, swimming in our new pool, up till midnight playing Mexican Train Dominoes each night so we are worn out! HA My friend was one I have known since the 9th grade so we've been friends for 46 years. We had a wonderful week with them!

Thanks for Bee-ing my Friend Cup

My new Concord & 9th die cuts came today and I could not wait to play with them. I see they sold out fast which I knew they would since they are so unique. The Stanley cup is all the rage right now in the US so I knew it would fly off the shelves. This is my first card to make with it. Notice the "baby cup" inside the card :). 

Also, this past week we were lucky enough to see the Northern Lights in NC. I was SOOOOOOOOO excited as I always wanted to travel to Norway or Ireland or Canada to see them and to see them here right near us was a dream come true!!!

Whale card

I had a great time in FL. The weather was PERFECT. Not too hot yet which is why I went in April, before it heats up soon.  We went one night to watch the sunset at the beach and Emily captured the sunset perfectly on her Canon camera.
