Friends like you are very few...


Happy Wednesday!  It's hard to believe we're already at the half way point of this week.  The weather has been beyond gorgeous here...as you can tell by the shorts and t-shirts of the boys and their friends.   This means lots of outside play time and just about all of us taking allergy medicine a lot earlier than normal.  

I love this picture of Marcel, Collin and Jonathon hanging out with their friends on the top of our play set.  Marcel was so excited to be able to go up top for the first time this year.  He won't be doing it without us very close by!  "It was a little bit scary mommy!"  

And I have a friendship card to share with you too!  I loved this week's Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab.  The colors and the damask jumped off the picture to me.  It too everything in me not to use the damask!  But...I'm happy with this nice simple layout with stamps and a die from WPlus9.  

I hope your week is zooming along too..

I love this card, Lynn! That little bird is so sweet nestled in the middle of the design.

It's gorgeous here too but we are desperate for rain. The grass is already turning brown and we're seeing more and more water trucks on the roads.

I love the softness of your card and the combo of the flowers and the bird. What a cute little die.
Thanks so much for following my blog. It means a lot to me.
We're getting gorgeous weather here in Chicagoland. The kids and I are practically bursting out of school/work at the end of the day, and our sandbox has gotten a workout :).

So pretty and soft! We have crazy good weather here too! We are usually covered in snow still and this short weather is crazy! :> I have heard that if you eat a spoonful of local honey it really helps to reduce your allergies over time, to do it year round! :>

Maureen said...

oh, my, that little birdie is so sweet! Gorgeous use of all those colours :) I can tell how proud Marcel is hanging out with the big kids. Did he climb down or have some help from Mom?

Jenny said...
