Catching up!

Phew! I had a nice visit with my in laws, my sister and her family, and my sister-in-law and niece...but now I am just trying to catch up. Today I cranked out 3 cards for the Card Call that The Angel Company is having for their next catalog coming out 1 June. I knew which papers I wanted to play with and had two sets in mind but that's it. Surprisingly, they came together quickly and I'm pretty pleased with them. I mailed them priority mail so I hope they make it in before it's too late. Cross your fingers - I think the competition will be tough, but that's a good thing!

I forgot about this card that I made a while back. I just love, love, love it! Heather had been using her chalks and so I grabbed mine out again too and I love the way the colors turned out. I had planned to enter this into a contest, but then couldn't bare to part with it because I was worried that I would never be able to color a mushroom so perfectly again. Is that silly or what?!


I was inspired by my friend Silke to use more than one edge punch and I love the cuttlebug embossing on the green.

Card Materials: All stamps and papers from The Angel Company

Gosh it's hot here! The last two days have been in the high 90 degrees. I finally put on AC last night so that we could sleep. Even my chickens are panting. Speaking of which, they are loving the weather change and "talked" all weekend long. A neighbor two houses down approached my hubby in the gym (first time they've talked, I think!) and asked if we had a rooster. Yikes...we don't but get 5 lady hens together and they can make a racket. I hope they settle down soon! PS. I'm also going to deliver a dozen of eggs to hopefully make a "new friend", tee hee...

Sounds like you had a great visit with your family Chris. I love your card, it is so adorable! Your chicken story made me smile, it is great that you get fresh eggs. My sister has chickens and always gives me eggs, I can't wait to get our own chickens later this year. Hope you have a great weekend, looks like it's going to be allot cooler, thank goodness!
