Happy Birthday Nurse Sue!!

How do you do? This card (make and take from Smudges) left for Cape Cod today for one of my 'ole gal pals from MA. I hope Sue likes it and I know it will be a total surprise for her. Hope you are enjoying the summer. Haven't been doing too much stamping lately as its not fun in the heat for me. Recently went on a mini vacation (two days) to Duluth with a couple friends. We had a good time on the north shore but it went by so quickly. What have you been up to? Can't believe July is almost over. Thanks for stopping by. Tami

A DeLovely card for sis!!

Hello friends!! Did you think I fell off the face of the earth? Nope, I just melted from the excessive heat and needed to keep a low profile!! Man this summer has been a HOT one but I know its even hotter in other states so I really shouldn't complain. The heat is OK if you are near water. Speaking of water, I went to Lake Minnetonka on Sunday to check out something (friend of a friend's daughter's wedding). It was a glorious day and I even met a new friend at the lake and her adorable dog. Too funny. Lots of cute dogs and boats of all sizes there. Can't wait to go back this coming Sunday!!

I am mailing this card off to my middle sister. Sami's new dog Annie bit her early Friday while she was playing with Annie before work. Sami had to go to the emergency room and get seven stitches. Poor little sweet girl. I told her that because she is so sweet just like her older sister (me) that Annie had to take a bite out of Sami's mouth and find out just how sweet Sami really tasted. I have a picture of the inside of Sami's mouth with stitches and part of her lip but I don't think I should put it on my blog. Its kind of gross and I hope she doesn't get an infection.

Have a super week my friends. I will be busy again this week and am even going on a little road trip to Duluth with a couple friends. I can hardly wait to get out of town. Thanks for stopping. Hope you are having a nice summer. This card was made using Cosmo Cricket products from the DeLovely collection. Cheers and sunshine wishes!! Stay cool!! Tami

PS...I am sorry if you received this post numerous times. I had so many problems with blogger, AOL, and myself (proofreading skills). Yikes!!

Sizzling HOT!!

Hope you all are surviving the heat wave. It is so hard to even sleep on warm muggy nights. I simply hate it. I made this card for my sister using Cosmo Cricket DeLovely papers (yes I can't get enough of the paper) and incorporated a photo my friend Jan gave me that I believe came from the Internet. Man how I wish I still lived in New England. I really miss the ocean and going to the beach. That was certainly the life and vacationing on Cape Cod. I must say I love how the card came out and it was a reminder of all the fun times we had in MA, NH and CT at the beach. I hope sis enjoys it. I used Stickles on the sun rays. Have a nice weekend. Stay cool in the pool and have lots of fun in the sun. I am headed to Pine City on Saturday on a little road trip with my friends. Fun fun fun but out of the sun sun sun. Tami

Hope you all had a great day. Here's a picture of me and just about the size of my fan!! We still have HIGH humidity whereby everything is sweaty Betty. I did make some delicious Cowboy Caviar tonight and it came out so good. Haven't been stamping too much lately as stamping and HOT weather don't mix too well with me when I have no air conditioning. Thanks for stopping by today. Proud to be an American even when times are tough. BIG shout out to Channel 2 today!! Tami

Happy Independence Day

Wishing you a very happy July 4th. It was so HOT here on Sat. (92 degrees with high humidity) yuck. Sorry the photo I clipped for this blog is rather small but the heat has shrunk my brain!! Fireworks anyone?? I hope to catch some somewhere as I missed ours on Wed. Be safe and have fun this weekend friends. I am thinking watermelon right now or some yummy strawberries. Bang bang, pop pop!! Tami
