2 weeks' notice

With all the crazy weather we've been having this year, it has hardly felt like spring, and now it's almost summer. We have 2 weeks of school left for my kindergartener, 3 for my 3rd grader, and I'm excited!  We had a baseball game last night that I had to wear a winter coat, hat, and gloves to.  It was SO cold.  This tree in our neighbor's field blew down a few weeks ago when we had a crazy wind storm. 


And now for a card.  I love it when I'm looking out in blogland and see a card or two that sparks my creativity.  Or when I see a card that is so awesome, I just want to hurry and case it.  I saw this fabulous card on Susan's Simplicity blog back before Easter, and I loved it.  It's been in my head ever since then.  Then I saw this card on a different Susan's blog (Mad Sky Designs).  Well, I decided to use the layout from the first card and the colors on the second, and this is what I came up with:


A super quick and easy card, with colors that I just love.  Enjoy your Friday!

Stamps: PTI Communique Curves Sentiments
Ink: PTI True Black
CS: PTI Hawaiian Shores, Summer Sunrise, White, SU Rose Red
Accessories: Martha Stewart Classic Butterfly Punch, Rhinestones

You are the queen bee of CAS cards! This is lovely and I like the pops of color on the white background.

May 25th is the last day of school for both my kids! Yipee!

Wow - that tree looks big and old and strong....to get knocked over...man...that's brutal!

Hey - another card...like the real kind! And isn't the Communique $5 set the best? Love the font and the cheapness of that little set. The little bling centers are sweet too.
