Was just outside, and look what my clematis gave me this morning!
One lone flower! Poor thing doesn't even realize that it's the 5th of November. And it's huge! Next year on that nicely weathered bench, of which you can see a bit, I'll be planting some lemony yellow clematis to grow and cover it. Should be really pretty.
Saturday I spent the day with my sister Sue, niece Jackie, and friend Terry. We drove to the Scrapbook Store in Greenfield, did a make & take, ate breakfast, shopped, and then hopped on a coach bus to Hannah's in Antioch, and then out to Polka Dots in Mukwonago for more of the same! Super day. Can't wait to do it again! And then after church yesterday, Jen says, "wanna go to Archivers in a while?"...how could I have said no?!! They had cardstock buy 10 get 10 free. One can never have too much paper!! Now it's time to get busy with some of that paper. Will be working on little Drew's scrapbook for Christmas. No, I haven't gotten it done yet...So many other things to do, however, I will be diligently working on it and get it finished! (not just this very minute...later...today for sure...I think..)
I have 18, yes, you heard right, 18 grandchildren. Chances are pretty good that one or more of them, or their parents has a birthday in whatever month we're in. November is no exception. Today I have a card for my very handsome, and perfectly wonderful grandson Lorenzo. I will pop this into Case Study #115, here 'tis:
Bazzill white cardstock, all scraps of blues (yippee!!!), used Cricut to cut the 16, and in the negative space, used a computer generated font for the happy birthday, pop dots, and white bling from Mark Richards. I'm thinking he'll really like the card, especially when he finds the gift card inside ; )
Happy dances everyone.
