Longboat Key Beauty and Card Making


My husband and I are still here in Longboat Key, FL until Saturday. The weather has been absolutely gorgeous. The picture above was taken on Tuesday evening on the beach overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Although the we did not catch the sunset, the clouds surrounding the sun gave the clouds surrounding it this vivid color.

I did get to stamp some while I have been gone. It's terrible when you start having "paper/ink" withdrawal! My daughter and I set out for Maitland, FL yesterday morning to meet and stamp with my up-line, Linda Heller. This was my first time meeting Linda in person. What a sweetheart and I am so blessed to be lead by her. We got to participate in her monthly card class with a great bunch of ladies and enjoy her beautiful craft room. I was a little envious. It was so bright, cheery and organized. Also, her teaching style is so laid back and fun, although I had a touch of "new stamper stress syndrome". I seem to do much better when I can create and stamp alone. Adrienne and I had such a great time and enjoyed our mother /daughter time together. Thanks Dee for going!

After returning to Sarasota, we headed to Adriennes house to prepare a Make&Take card for Dee's girls who were coming over to "play". As usual, paper and ink always brings smiles. We had a great time just chit chatting and creating. Thanks girls for allowing me into you craft space! Below is the card that we put together. Unfortuately, I had to take the picture inside with my phone camera, so the quality is not stellar. SORRY!

Today looks like another great day here. I think after breakfast we will head for the beach and just "chill". I do have some laundry to do, but that might have to wait until tonight.

I pray you have a wonderful day...
