Keep Up the Fight



Happy, happy Sunday. We are having an absolutely beautiful weekend and I'm sitting outside on our patio relaxing as a type up this post.  The younger boys are outside playing on our neighbor's swing set and running through the sprinkler....and the older ones are in the basement singing their hearts out getting ready for a jazz band concert where they will be performing and singing.  I love when the house is full of kids.

So...I snuck down for a bit of time to create.  I couldn't pass up creating a card inspired by Tracey's gorgeous Muse card this week. The colors are vibrant...and seriously how does she stamp so perfectly on the dies!?  My card is pretty much a straight case of hers and will be going to a good friend's older sister who is currently recovering from a stroke.  Sending it with lots of love and prayers for her.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend! Hope it is a beautiful one.

Oh your day sounds wonderful Lynn! Nothing like a house full of kids having fun doing the things they want to do. I absolutely love your Muse card, those flowers are so pretty and the colours are so soothing. I am so happy that you shared with us at Muse this week!

Beautiful take on Tracey's card, Lynn. Those blooms are gorgeous images. And we're 'row' neighbors in the gallery too! I remember the days when the house and yard were full of boys, and my refrigerator was practically empty! Fun times. Have a good week dear friend. Bev

I too find it hard to get the flowers stamped and diecut straight...
But these look so perfect! Great colours and a card that can replace a bouquet any time! Sounds like a good weekend! Hugs, Gerrina
