Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

I hope you all had a wonderful relaxing weekend and enjoyed the 4th of July fireworks??? We had a fun one too!!!

I recovered from my heartburn - LOL!!! I've been eating very healthy thru out the last couple of month and this little bitty piece of cake that I ate at the party really made me suffer - YIKES!!! But thank goodness it's all gone and I feel much better!!! Thank you guys for wishing me well!!!

Silke, that bird card is absolutely adorable! Love everything about it. The only improvement would be if you'd colored it to be a robin! HA!

The second card is just stunning. Love the color combo - that Blue Awning paper is perfect.
