Hey, Thanks!

Happy Friday! TGIF! Good grief, what a week! It was called back to reality! Back to work after a fabulous vacation, back to the last week of summer camp for the boys (read - making lunches ick!), working on organizing and registering for all the after-school activities for the fall and trying to enjoy what we have left of summer! Whew! Let me tell you, it was good "practice" for getting into the groove in preparation for Back to School. We managed most of the nights to have the boys in bed close to the regular time, so that was good. This is why I haven't been blogging or visiting whatsoever but I'm looking forward to catching up!

I have one last week of not packing lunches next week since they are at daycare for a few days (rather than summer camp) and hubby and I each have a day home with them. We shall enjoy that while it lasts!

So, this is another one of the super simple cards I made while at camp. This is a flower from my garden and I love how the photo turned out, so thought it would be perfect on a card. I am on the lookout for some really bold rub-ons so that they will show up better on some of the darker colors. The other thing I'd like to try is to use Staz On Ink with a sentiment stamp, but rub-ons are so much quicker and less messy! I didn't have any Staz On with me at camp in any case!

Sorry the photo is so far away, my editing program seems to be on the fritz this morning, perhaps I will get back to fix it later. Below is the inside. I just love these colors together!

Hope you have a great Friday! I won't promise to be back before Sunday with Sparkle's newest Christmas Card challenge, but we shall see!
Cheers for now,
Shanna :)


  1. Oh Banana, this is GORGEOUS! The photo is beautiful and the sentiment looks great. I love the pink, yellow and brown together too, will try that!
    Enjoy your last week of no packed lunches. Mine start again next Friday. I can't even remember what to put into a packed lunch!
