Elsie and Annabelle Beep-Beep styling in their new hats - thanks Liz and Michael!

Something caught my eye as it sauntered by the sliding glass door

So I looked out the back door and this was my view:
Naturally I grabbed the camera and then tried to scare it off by tapping on the glass.  I had to open the door before it stopped drinking.  Then it looked at me and ran out the dog door.  Look at the wet paws!

Now this is more like it- 8 cards made in under an hour

Nothing fancy here but I like these much better than the previously posted horrid scraps I'm trying to pass off as greeting cards.

Thank goodness these birthday cards are finished

I thought these would be quick and easy.  WTH?  Let's just say I'm oh-so-happy these are complete and I won't be making these ever again.  I don't even like them... I think they are fairly ugly!

I'm So Glad We're Friends card, one is nice, six are mediocre

 I made this one first and really liked it.
 Then I cut everything for six more.  Well, I made the green background paper a little too large but thought it would be ok.   Obviously I was wrong.   My pea-brain didn't think about the tall sentiment stamp.  I had to stamp over the dang embellishment.  Oh well.  I will be fine.  It has to be; I have six of 'em. Haha  
Note: isn't it weird how the green paper looks in the second photo?  The first photo is representative of the true color.  Not sure what happened to the second photo.  Weird iPad camera I guess.  Shot under exact same circumstances seconds apart.
inside of the card:
  Wonder what is next?   Stay posted for more cards.... Hopefully I keep my mojo!

Enjoy the Ride - Papertrey Ink

Up, Up, and Away - Papertrey Ink

Hopefully I'm on a card making roll today. It's is the first this morning. I made six of these and don't like them at all. This set with coordinating die will be found on eBay soon!

Bad storm today - hail, wind, heavy rain, power failure - elsie is freaking out

 yep, that's hail on the deck.
I won't have to add water to the pool now and the gardens are oh-so-happy.  The plants may be a little bruised from the hail but they are for sure refreshed after the downpour.
 little bit of rain coming off the roof.
 Floating mulch!
 Debris on the driveway.  I walked the dogs later and every yard is a mess with large and small branches, leaves, palm fronds, etc.  Old Darby street is littered with leaves, dirt, mulch, and whatever else floated or was blown in. 
Hail under the bottle brush tree out front.

Hail on the screen above the pool.

Hi-ho, hi-ho

Two more Paula Deen Gooey cake experiments

Two new base cakes as shown. Both with original vanilla filling and a sprinkle of chocolate chips. We prefer the orange cake in this taste test.
