Waiting for Summer


Today was such a beautiful day here in Pittsburgh that I just can't wait for summer to come! I made the base of this card about a year ago, when I was out of town and had very limited supplies with me. I put it away and forgot I had it, so I found it and added some things to it. I'm not crazy about it, but at least it's not as plain as it was before. The card base is from one of those DCWV Cards in a Box. All of the cards had different patterns on them. I thought they were neat. Well, I hope you enjoyed a beautiful day as well! The weekend is supposed to be just as nice, if not nicer! Yeah! Enjoy your weekend! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Shore Thing, Sweet Shapes; Ink- More Mustard, Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip; Paper- DCWV brown, yellow, Whisper White; Accessories- Polka Dot Organdy Ribbon from Doodliedoo, Chocolate/Brown ribbon from Oriental Trading, Word Window punch, horizontal slot punch, Making Memories brad.

It was nice here today too!! I actually went out and watered the flower planters (tulips aren't bloomin' yet though) and the new trees we planted last summer. The card is nice and summery!! I love the ribbons on it. The birds remind me of the beach and I'm just aching to get there this summer. :) heehee...I thought you might like my "Oodabug" spinner card.

I don't think it's plain. It looks great!!!
We had nice days yesterday and today. Rick took Reba to the beach for a couple of hours. The boys didn't want to go so I volunteered to stay home since the wind was still a little cool.

I love it! Great colors and I really like the beach-y feel. The weather's gorgeous here, but then again it usually is if we're not having tornadoes. :)
