Summer Time!

It's summer and that brings to mind lazy long weekends. Watching fireworks, cooking out. How was your holiday?
Mine was very laid back. 
But not quite the way that I had pictured. 
Saw some fireworks. The next day a trip to the ER led to spending 4 days in the hospital. 

Putting my feet up, as they say. Lots of tests, and oh, the fireworks! They were flaring off in my digestive system. I am on the mend now and feeling way way better! 
Sorry for that diversion into the realities of life. I never know how much to tell on my blog, you know? Do you just want cards or should we talk about something else every now and then?

Good news! A card photo too! 

I spent some time stamping images and fussy cutting them last night. This prairie dog was just itching to go on a card. I am so into cute and kinda quirky right now. Waffle Flower alert! This trend may stick with me for awhile.

I used my brushes to ink a background on Bristol Smooth card stock in desert colors. I colored the images and arranged them to make a scene. 

This is a flap fold card shared recently by Jennifer McGuire HERE on her blog. I decided to give it a try. There is a bottom panel that doesn't open. The inked panel opens and you can write your note inside. The Waffle Flower Summer Time set is NBUS so I will share at that challenge, and play along at The Paper Players too. 

In all honesty, in reflecting, I must emphasize my gratefulness for the entire medical community! And above all, thanks to my Rescuer. His name is Jesus. 

Thank you so much for your visit! Have a day filled with wonder.

Be yourself
