Lifetime of Happy Tomorrows

I had a lot of fun with my brand new Verve stamp sets, can you tell? I used Julee Tillman's Mojo Monday Sketch #38 for my jumping off point. I need to make an extra special card for one of my kiddos at church who was baptized this past Saturday. She's such a sweetie. I used the stem stamp from SU Double Line Doodle set to go with my Verve Visual Petals and Stems set. I think I have a thing for polka dots. A lot of scraps of paper here. I used my Creative Memories Oval Cutter to cut the oval for the sentiment.
Yesterday was my dh's birthday. We went to Pizza Barn for dinner. Travis loves their pizza. We came home and at German Chocolate cake and Breyers Loaded Waffle Cone Ice cream, again, his choice. Then he got on the roof and hooked up the cooler because MAN was it hot yesterday! Happy Birthday Honey! He actually went deep sea fishing with his dad and friends over Mother's Day weekend and there was an understanding that that would be his "present". They caught quite a lot of fish and ended up with about 20 lbs. of fillets each when all was said and done. Does anyone know any good fish recipes? We have many different kinds of sea fish and I'm at a loss besides baked or grilled. Hee hee.
Oh, and don't let me forget to give a big shout out to Jenn D. over at Stamp Your Heart Out. She's such a sweetie. She sent me the cutest card (which I will post as soon as I get a pick) and some images that my daughter, Tessa, fell in love with. Thanks JENN!
Have a great day!

totally cute Misty - love the butterflies, you know they are my fave! Glad to hear your DH had a good birthday!

This is so bright and cheery. I love all of the color and patterns. Very pretty.

Could you send a little warm weather to us? I have been freezing the last few days and it's not even near 60 degrees, but I hear we may have to turn on the airconditioning come Monday.

I'm glad you got the card and images.

You have been busy and I am once again behind in my blog hopping. Lovely projects--love the orange and green on this card. Hope you had a nice birthday celebration with your husband. I have a great recipe that my family all loves that I'll email you if you are interested. It's also really good to just coat your fish in a mixture of cornmeal and salt and pepper and pan fry it in olive oil. Yum!

The clouds are so cute! Love the card. I'll just repeat how talented I think you are.

Suxh a delightfully happy card! Good luck with your fish! Grilling it in foil with veggies is good Put on lemon and olive oil (extra virgin) It cooks up fast, cook on indirect heat on grill. Yum! Take care, Deb
