WOW Already into Day 3- Fly away with me

Happy Wednesday Everyone
I have another card to share with you I had it done late last night but the lighting was so bad that the pictures did  not show up. So I had to wait until this morning to take the pic. and I just love hot air balloons. The last time WPAFB had the hot air balloon show I think my husband and I where still dating. so that had to be over 15 years ago.  I made this card for him "fly away with me" Like any couple we have our arguments but they never last long. I used to dwell on them but even over time I have learned that it's just not worth it. Even if I am right and he is wrong I but my two cents in and walk away. Then the next day he is all flirty with me so I know the tricks now and in the end I was right anyway. LOL
So A Happy Anniversary goes out to my Hubby Which is June 29th TODAY 15 years YEAH!

the sun was from sassafras lass paper is Cosmo cricket
I printed out "fly away with me" on velum and die cut it out with MFT Die-namcis cloud.

Summer and Icecream

When I saw this stamp all I could like of was my darling Abby She loves Ice cram (specially cookie dough) and to wear her sunglasses.  SO I knew I had to have this beautiful stamp from Stamping Bella named Lacy. The papers are from October afternoon and Echo Park the flower is MFT die.

I made this card for Abby for her turning 7 1/2 I know it is crazy to celebrate 1/2 birthdays but this one is special. It took 15 year to get to this point because we never thought we would be able to have any Children. And when she was born on Christmas eve it was 7 1/2 years that we waited for that moment. My Darling Husband and I will have been married 15 years. on June 29th.

Strawberry Heaven

Sweet Goodness
Here in good old Ohio it hit in the 90's today and it was humid. Poor Rick decided that we had better start on the garden and rented a tiller because my garden was over ran with weeds. So while he was busy with that I was trying to deweed the strawberries, and oh what a mess it was. However I realised after starting that I needed a little help, such as garden gloves a trash bag and a bowl for all the strawberries that needed picked. Well needless to say as fast as I was deweeding and pick strawberries Abby was eating them. She keep saying this are to die for Mommy I want to eat them all and she ate about 1/2 a quart. An oh if you have never picked and ate a strawberry in the heat then go and try them. They are the sweetest  and juiciest strawberry's I have ever had. All my friends are talking about going to Troy (where the strawberry fest is) and pick strawberries well more power to them LOL. I just pick 4quarts out of my own garden and I am only half done.
Oh the sweet taste of SUMMER!

I don't know what she had more fun doing playing on her slip and slide or eating strawberry! But it was a perfect day for both.
PS I too love strawberries and cherries ooh can't forget the cherries. Oh yeah I just remembered we took Abby to the drive in and and asked to try come cherries and she loved them as well that and she enjoyed spitting the seeds out like Mommy. And the child ate a carrot today and that is a big deal. She used to love them as a baby but then would not touch one until today. She has come a long way and is finally willing to try things. YEAH!
