I wanted to be sure to get a post up today because it is Friday and I know you are looking for my Penny Black "Fun Friday" post. As it turns out I am not scheduled at Penny Black this week but you can find me here next Friday on September 2nd when both PB and I will be featuring my three "Beautiful in Blue" cards AND right here you will have another chance to win $25.00 in your choice of Penny Black products! If you missed my announcement and wanna know what I'm referring to please check out THIS POST.
I hope the weather is a bit nicer in your part of Blogland than it is in mine today. It is 45* and cloudy with the threat of thunder storms and a high of only 65*. It feels like fall! but I'm not finished with summer! : )
So sorry about the quality of my photograph I simply could not get the lighting right - must be the gloom outside! This is a Thank you card I made for my sister, Susan of A Splash of Color blog, for my June birthday gift. I made and sent it back in June but have not had the chance to post it until today and I NEED some sunshine in my life right now : ) Maybe it'll inspire these clouds to dissipate : )
I have been so busy this summer it is crazy and therefore summer is going by crazy fast! : ) I love it all!! since moving to the Black Hills we have been blessed to have so many friends and family visiting it has been like a revolving door!! This past week we had dear friends from Minnesota visit.
Visitors have kept me away from papercrafting. Then this week I have been covered up (almost literally) with beautiful fabric as I sew scarves for our neckStyles™ business. Christmas shopping is always a busy and lucrative time for us in our business so I have been preparing for a new release and sale in September. Sewing has kept me away from papercrafting! My husband and I have purchased Recumbent Tricycles this year so Biking has kept me away from papercrafting!!
Here are some pictures of my new bike and our friend's visit last week. I'm sorry it is so long I could't figure out how to make a grid like Darnell does : ) but it's just pictures not long drawn out stories explaining each picture like your Mother-in-law does! giggles
|In all the years we've been visiting Prairie Dog town's in SD we have never ever seen Prairie Dogs allow you to get so close! this little sweetie had this Prairie Dog literally eating out of her hand!|
On this fun note I will close for today. I need to tuck away my sewing supplies and vacuum to inspect for pins that might have gotten away from me and to get rid of all the colorful fibers floating around : ) Once that is complete I get to decide what I'm going to work on because tomorrow I'm finally going to get back to papercrafting when I get to go to a FUN full day of playing with paper with three crafty friends!!
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
