Happy Memorial Day!

I found this T-shirt at Michael's craft store. My friend, Sam, and her mother, Faith, have several matching shirts related to scrapbooking and I have wanted one for some time now. Well, being that my favorite color is turquoise, I just had to buy this one.

This is a card I made at April's WOW class using the stamp sets Extreme Guitar & Extreme Elements.

1. Start with a piece of 12x12 Double sided cardstock. Any of the paper in the Stampin' Up catalog from pages 160-167 will work. Cut into 1 inch strips so that you have a 1x12 inch strip. I used 6 pieces of different cardstock to make my wreath.

2. Take each 1x12 inch strip and cut in half so that you have 2 pieces of 6" strips.

3. Take a bone folder and run from center of paper out toward edge to curl ends.

4. Add a straight pin through the center of the paper and push down into the foam wreath (which you can purchase at any craft store)

5. Cover entire wreath with the curled strips of paper. You can use as a candle centerpiece and lay it flat on a table or add some ribbon to hang as a wreath. Let your creativity flow!

We are off for 4 days to Georgia for a fun filled, exciting time. We are taking Maranda to 2 Braves games (her daddy's favorite MLB team) and to a NHRA event. I know she and Randy are looking forward to each of the baseball games but I am most looking forward to the NHRA Drag Racing event. Love it!!

Here are a few cards I made using either Old Olive, Certainly Celery or Kiwi Kiss cardstock. The Taken with Teal or Turquoise and Black cardstock were used for layering. I finished the front by layering coordinating ribbon. On the "Hi" card, I colored with Teal marker then put a little Crystal Effects on each dot for a 3D glossy finish.

During my usual travels today, I saw something really funny. I often see lots of things during a day traveling for Home Health. I see sad things, odd things, funny things, unusual and bizarre things and sometimes things that are upsetting. Well, today I wanted to share a funny thing. As I approached a red light in Mineola, I could see a hand written sign posted in the rear window of a little truck. This little truck was in tow by a RV. It read "Please be patient with me, I am pushing a really big RV." Cute!

Our Yellow Rose of Tyler. These are gorgeous roses. Randy bought these knowing that Maranda & I love yellow roses.
