Summer birthday

Summer birthday

Sometimes going back to a design you notice things that you didn’t really notice the first time around. I think the first time I colored this design I thought the center was a flower, and this time I realized it was probably supposed to be the sun. The thing is the beauty of art is one person’s flower can be another person’s sun. It really is all in the eye of the beholder, and I think in the eye of the beholder at the time of viewing even.

Until I started watching one of my nephews on a daily basis and had to be up early I didn’t get up until double digits most days and that involved my sweet husband bringing me a cup of coffee and something to eat. There was a period where I couldn’t drink coffee because of a medication I was on, but now it seems as long as it is black I can again! Which means hubby is back to starting my day with a hot cup, and it is one of the reasons I love him so much.

When one of my nephews was little (the one I talk about the most) I watched him daily while his mom was at work.  Ok, yes that is true for most of them on and off, but this one was more of a fulltime thing.  Back to the point, I would always sing to him, and this was what I considered his song because he was my sunshine.  He did always make me happy, he still does, except now he tells me he isn’t but I am pretty sure that comes with being nine. read more

Out and about one day I picked up this small pad of paper and it seemed so sunny and bright it inspired this card. I think it is the very reason that I keep buying so much paper, I see something and I know it would go perfectly with this stamp or that image. read more

I bought the stamps and dies because I love the weather theme and it’s flexibility. I have enjoyed using it every time that I have chosen it, and I have always been so happy with the results. One day I was at the craft store and I saw the paper that I am using as the background paper here and I just knew it would work with this set so well, now I wish I had gotten more sheets of it!
