Good Morning, All! Wow! Today is a complete opposite of what yesterday was! Yesterday was sunny and hot! Today? Well, it is super windy and very cool! I haven't totally put away all my sweaters yet because I can't figure out if summer is really here! I am thankful for the cool days... but it is summer. It's hard to want to go swimming when it's like this. So, today we are going to the free movies. Nick wants to see Flushed Away. I don't care what the movie is when it's free!!! Should be fun!

Last night I was at Becky's card class. Oooohh! She had some GREAT layouts! I can't wait to try some of those out! Tomorrow I get to play with Emily so I will try some out then! Today's card is one I started to copy from the current catalog (page 54). Their card was a 3 x 3 love note. I think the love notes are cute but you can't mail them. And I mail most of my cards. So, I tried to make it into a regular card sized card. This is what I came up with. Not my favorite but it works. I don't hate it anyway. I was also hoping to use some of my In Color items as they will be retiring at the end of July. The Close to Cocoa piece behind the main image is punched from the photo corner punch. I also used the spiral punch (just like in the catalog) and then pierced five holes and put brads in two of them. I hope that it inspires you! Enjoy your day!
