Miss You

Hi! I hope your having a great week so far! It's cooling down to around 97 here and it totally makes a difference in the fact that it's tolerable! The mornings are crisp and cool and makes me giddy that fall is around the corner!

 
I cut  the background with my trusty Cameo. I have found that it cuts watercolor paper like butter and you can cut intricate things easily. I water colored the background and butterflies with watercolor paint this time. I want to invest in some high quality watercolor but need to research fist. It's something I love to do so I don't mind the investment. The tag is PTI's newest tag sale die.
 
Nothing new here. Still nursing my arm and going to Chico on Saturday to see my baby! She's 2 months already and getting so big! Here's a video of her. My daughter said she is making a howling sound so she video taped it. It's so funny! I can't believe at 8 weeks she's doing this. Turn up the sound :-)
 
 
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day! Hugs, Char

Hi Char! I love this card. Your designs are always lovely. I have to say that I'm VERY grateful that you continue to stop by my blog. To be very honest, I'm feeling "the pinch", and it hurts! Thanks for being a real friend.

I saw that you said "it's down to 97". You must live near my part of the U.S. I'm looking at my back yard thermometer as I type this, and at 10:53 AM, it is almost 90 here. I'm SO ready for cooler weather.

Have a blessed week, and happy crafting.
