Enjoy Your Special Day



I love when I can capture the boys doing something and they don't know I'm snapping their pictures. Saturday night we were relaxing on our patio watching the Cincinnati Reds game.  Collin was sitting there blowing bubbles. Do any of you remember the little straws that you put stuff on the end and then blow bubbles?  Well, I do...I loved them...he found some at the dollar store and has been enjoying it all weekend.  I love his sweet little hands and his concentration in these photos.

I also wanted to share a quick card for this week's CASE Study Challenge.  This card was mailed off to a friend whose daughter graduates this weekend. She's been on my mind as she lost her mom about a year ago and I know her mom would love to have shared this special day.  So...just a quick note to send her a hug and let her know I'm thinking of her on her daughter's special day.

sniff, sniff, what a beautiful card for a special occasion. Literal girl over here thought the CASE card had to have some fun fuzzy green texture... I'll pass the winner's bouquet off to you.

I spy the linen impression plate! Cute flower bunch and love the subtle pale oink you used.
Collin looks in real concentration mode-it reminds me of blowing bubble gum x

I totally remember that bubble stuff - we loved it as kids!! Although I think I went through a phase of chewing on it so I'm pretty sure we were under strict surveillance when we had it! LOL! :)

Love your card. You are so amazing and generous with your caring for everyone.
