I'm BACK.LOL

 I took a day about a month or so ago to just PLAY with some of the COOL things I had collected and hadn't used yet. These are just a few of them. The card on the left...I embossed with an embossing folder from 'Darice". The tag on the first one is from K&Company. It is one out of a set of them. I used a punch to make the butterfly and a rub on from The Paper Studio for the sentiment. The gem flourish is a cut off from a Recollections Rhinestone Embellishment.It had a crocheted flour attached..which I may use somewhere else.:)  The Card on the right was SOO easy to make. I had bought a 3D sticker from Paper House and attached it to a light orange, folded piece of card stock,then used Tim Holtz distress ink around the edges of the inside and outside. I then attached some gold corner stickers. :)

 I am thinking of giving the above card to Jim for our  44th Anniversary this coming August 1st. I still need to put something on it to give it some 'bling'.LOL  I used several odds and ends to make this one.

 I was thrift store shopping when I came across this ADORABLE frame. I couldn't believe the price they had on it! $1.21. :) It just needed a wipe with a clean cloth and my Mama's photo to set it off!I LOVE it!!

 Jim was on vacation last week when he finally got the concrete finished on the fire pit part of the patio. Now all we need is for him to find or make something to hold a fire in place...and another trip through with the power washer.LOL

 This is just ONE of the rabbits that live in our back yard. There were two of them there at the same time the other day. Bet we will have more babies soon.:) We had some babies last year..but I haven't seen them since a Hawk was seen in the neighborhood.:( I know Hawks have to eat too..but not MY BUNNIES!! :)

 This is Chelsea! She turned a year old the 4th of April. She has grown so much! In size and in our hearts! She is part Husky or Malamute and very much FULL of energy.LOL I love the expression on her face when I open the door and say something to her.It's like...a question mark.:)
  Jim put the patio table and chairs on the octagon for the moment. He has plans of making concrete seats around the bonfire. We'll see......:)

This is the other side of the back yard. We use to have a wooden swing set that Jim built for the girls but the weather wore it down and Jim took it down. We need to paint this swing and get new cushions for it. In the meantime..we throw a blanket over it when we want to sit in it.:) I LOVE that we have all these trees to shade the yard!!:)

  It has been SOO long since I had posted anything to share with my friends. Thought I would try to get caught up this week.:)

 Huge hugs!!
