Hello everyone!!

What a FABULOUS Victoria Day weekend we had!!! No time for crafting for me, spent all my time outside planting, helping my husband and playing with the kids. The deck is done and the furniture is all up. My pretty flowers are potted and on the deck as well. We started the pool, we just have to have the water tested and add the salt. We're hoping to be in it by the weekend..WOOHOO!!!

See this is exciting for us because we have long winters and much shorter summers so we get pretty hyped up when the heat comes our way..LOL!!

Today, on the other hand, I did have time to craft because the kids are back in school, I only worked half a day and it's raining, bitter sweet right ;)))

Here is one set that I finished:

Thank-you cards are always in big demand especially with the school year approaching!

I used this sketch from Deconstructing Jen:  

& these are the challenges I have entered:
1. Deconstructing Jen, Sketch #52
2. The Paper Players challenge #96, clean and simple using polka dots
3. Flourishes challenge #170, use a flower

Thanks for stopping by, see you later with another set!!

love & create ...with a smile :)
