Good Morning!! I hope you are all doing well. Today is the day I leave to go camping. Before going, I have the privelege of going to meet a friend for brunch two hours from here. I would have rather not have done it today and waited until a day I had more time but she starts teaching again next week. Boohoo! There is such a distance between us, that it is hard to get together as often as we would like. I am so excited to go see her today!!! She is such a special friend and I have missed her so!

I did manage to get most of the camper packed. Scott, my dear husband, told me not to worry about getting done on time. It is a vacation he says. LOL why didn't I think of that. No, I did know that but didn't want to let the kids or him down if they wanted to leave at a decent time.
The forecast isn't looking so good. Rain again! I am praying real hard that they are wrong. This summer, however, the forecasts with rain were never wrong. I feel like we live in the rainforest sometimes. Just kidding!

Well today I wanted to share a card I made with one of the sweet Sarah Kay images: Fanny's Cuddle. I love her illustrations and I can't get enough of these stamps.

I made this card for a friend of mine's niece. Hope she liked it. Her favorite color is pink. The paper is from Basic grey and Walk in the Park (SU). Love the combo together. I used an old MMSC sketch. Loved this sketch!! Some people have been asking about the punch I have been using for some of my borders. This is Moracco Lace from EK Success. I bought it at Michaels.

Well I better get going! Hope you all have a fab day. I plan to schedule a few posts for while I am away so I may be gone from my home but not my blog.
