Sending love and hugs

Hi Friends~!
Well I've managed to get one card made lol! This card is made with PTI Goodies and the Rose is Altenew. I just embossed and water colored it.

Destiny and Kinley have taken up Kayaking! They have been going our with Kinley's great grandmother! Destiny loves it so much she bought a kayak last Saturday! They have been hitting the lakes around Redding and Lassen Park. We have so many lakes up here its a blast! Charlene on the other hand is allergic to 111 temps were been having because I'm going thru the change and the heat is NOT my friend lol! In the fall I will go with them.

Kinley had a birthday last week and she is now 3! I have really enjoyed them being at my house ! Kinley wants to sleep with me every night and she's a great cuddler! She got a three story Barbie house from her other grandmother. It's 4 feet tall and three feet wide. OMG! Shes having fun with it, but all those little parts aren't good for my feet!
John's trial is set for July 5th. I'm so nervous! I found out that I can't be in the courtroom until after I testify and neither can any of the other witnesses. I didn't know that. :-( I want to be there to support him anyway).
Well, that's it for me. I hope you girls are doing well!
Hugs, Char

Stunningly beautiful rose & wonderfully designed card, Char! I've been thinking about you with this heatwave! Oh my goodness that's too hot--unless you're swimming in Shasta! The kayaking looks fun--nothing I've ever done, but you do have such beautiful country there! 3 yrs old already--amazing & such a cutie pie! My heart is with you as you face this difficult time. Big hugs, Greta

Oh, such a gorgeous card using the PTI goodies and lovely orange water colored flower, so pretty, Char! The kayaking looks fun! But, yes, 100 plus temps are too hot, whew! It's much cooler here, but I'm afraid the heat will come soon. A big Happy 3rd Birthday to Kinley!!! How adorable and so precious for her and daughter to be there with you! You and family are in my thoughts and prayers! I will especially be thinking of you, John, and all on the 5th! Sending warm hugs your way! Take care!

Beautiful, beautiful card! Your watercolored flower is eye-catching. Love the lattice and cut frame, too. Yes, that is way too hot. And I can totally sympathize - oh, hot flashes. That Kinley is adorable and I know you are enjoying her. I'll be sending you all the positive energy I can next week. Take good care of yourself!

What a gorgeous card Char! Love your design and the colors. Perfectly layered elements! How FUN that Kinley gets to experience kayaking! Can't believe she's 3 already and cute as a button too. Hang in there, God will get you through this. My hearts is with you, HUGS.

Apologies for my late comments, sweet friend, but I"m here now, catching up! First, I'm marveling, yet again, at your astounding creativity; you've elevated the 'pretty' rose to nothing short of gorgeous and elegant! WOW...just full-on WOW! Fabulous photos of your 'girls', and especially, your now-three-years-old darling Kinley! What a gem; so thrilled that you have time to spend with her, be it playing, hanging out or cuddling! You're creating a bond that will last forever! As for your 'allergy' to the 111 degree temperature...too funny! I'm the same; I break out in 'grumpy' *grin* As for the trial...hugs, prayers and love heading your way!
