Hi Ladies, I should be in bed now fast asleep but I decided to stay up and post the card that I made late tonight and also one of my family BBQ photos.
Here is my card.
Stamps:Have A Seat (love this!) and the sentiment is from Silhouette Sentiments stamps set. Card-stock: Od Olive, Very Vanilla, and Cajun Craze. Dp is Autumn Spice. I love this paper and will be buying more of it. Inks: Cajun Craze and Early Espresso. I used twine and a button (Cajun Craze) from the Regals design. A very simple card to make. I intend to use this card for one of my classes.:) All products are from Stampin' UP!
Due to my having to postpone my family BQ the week before last due to heavy rain all day we had it this Sunday. Unfortunately not all of our family could make it. It was a bittersweet day for me. It the only time each year that both Wayne and my family get together. It's hard having a blended family some times. Despite the weather being in the 90's and being very humid those of us who were at our "small" family BBQ did have a wonderful time. It was just me missing everyone else. Oh well next year I hope everyone will come including my son who lives in TN. and my sister who lives in CO. We shall see. :) I will be putting a smilebox together and posting it within the next few days so that you can see some of the fun that we did have. Here is one photo of all of us together.
I told you it was a small get together this year. Top right is my niece, Rene, my sister Deirdre, Me, Wayne & Hillary (daughter). bottom row from right is: Lars my nephew Colleen(daughter), Aubrey, Caleb (grandchildren and Peter Colleens long time boyfriend. My daughter and granddaughters are missing, my brother and his better half are missing, Wayne's son and his fiance could not make it and Juliette(granddaughter) is missing due to an all day birthday party. So there you have it. A photo of a part of some of our very small family. Still I am very grateful that they made it.:) Everyone else truly did miss a nice time.
I hope that you had a wonderful Sunday and that your week will be a good one. We are having a heat wave all of this week. But by 6 pm the temps drop down to 82 so I have been abel to take my walks. Yay!
Thanks so much for stopping by. Please be safe, stay cool and Smile. :)
