This is for Grandma

I took these last night. There is a park not 2 minutes from our house. The city residents get in for free Mon-Thurs. We spend a lot of time here, even if it's just an hour a night. The boys have so much fun!!! They enjoy looking for minnows, bigger fish & hopefully a turtle!

With the recent heavy rains we've had, the water has been flowing really fast & it's been cold. Last night it was much warmer... at least the boys didn't have blue lips when they got out! LOL!!!

stvcolorcs3 and ssnotime144 Geraniums

The color challenge on stamptv is purple & green with your choice of one light neutral & one dark neutral. The sketch if from this week's Stamp Simply challenge. I flipped the sketch.

Stamps: Enjoy the Sunshine Gina K.
C/S: vanilla, Perfect Plum, Chocolate Brown
DP: Latte matstack

Gina K. Design Team Challenge

The Gina K. Design Team Challenge was to create a card featuring our favorite summer memory.

One of my favorite things about summer is the fresh fruit... dark red cherries, juicy peaches with juice running down your chin & arm, cantaloupe, watermelon, and berries... all kinds of yummy berries.

I remember one summer, when my parent's were pastoring a church in a small town in Kansas, we went over to some friends house & picked berries in a field across the road from their house. We met my parent's in AR one summer & picked peaches. Now, we don't live very far from the peach capital of Oklahoma, so we try to go over there several times to buy peaches.

But this year's memories have to do with strawberries. My boys wanted some strawberry plants, so we bought 8. I don't know how many days they come running in the house to tell me how wonderful the strawberries are, they are eating them as fast as they are turning red & they aren't sharing!!!!! :D They are having so much fun watering the plants, chasing the squirrels away & just enjoying eating them. I hope to get some pictures... if they will warn me they are going out to check the plants!! LOL!

I'm hungry for some fresh fruit now! *wink*

Stamps: Enjoy the Sunshine Stamptv Kit Gina K.

FTTC70 Timeless Tuesday Black & White + 1

This week's Timeless Tuesday challenge was right up my alley... black & white + 1 color... and yet it still took me 2 days to get it to where I was somewhat happy with it. At one point, my 6 year old said, "Are you going to upload THAT one????" When I told him that I wasn't, he replied, "Oh, good!" If I want an honest opinion, I know that he is the go to person!!! :D

Stamps: Poppy Patch, Wreaths of All Seasons Flourishes
c/s: Red, Black, white
DP: Retired Real Red
oval punches, copics, black brads, black pearls
