Thanks A Bunch!

What a beautiful day we're having! It's 85 and hot. I came in from outside working on opening up the pool. Wish I could jump in, but it's not ready yet. Adding more water to it and need to scrub the cover. I will miss my pool cover friends. I would go out between 6-7 most evenings and feed bread to my married couple--the mallard ducks. I also will miss seeing a hawk bathe himself and the frog or toad..could never tell which, I will miss his croaking at night. I know the mallards will be back next year because we 've had them for several years now. The others I will have to wait to see. Below is the hawk and I will see if I can find the duck pics from last year. (I think it's on my old computer). Enjoy!


Finally, I got to play with my goodies and made this card. I wanted to make a fast card and challenged myself not to use ribbon or a border punch. I always use both on my cards and thought let's make this simple today. This is what I came up with, but I did use pearls.... I would say 95% of the cards I make I use pearls or rhinestones. Gotta have them!
