Shopping Day!

I took my two granddaughters, Erin and Sam, out to their favorite stores (eight of them I think) for a little shopping with Grandma.  No limits, just fun.  We were gone for four hours, but that includes a lunch as well.  When we got home, there was a fashion show for Grampy and great Grammy.  I can't show you their purchases, but here they are afterwards.

Here are the girls, Erin on the left, Sam on the right, with me, then DH, then Great Grammy.

Aren't these girls beautiful???  YES!

CCEE1524 Roses

The flower for the month of June is roses. There are so many varieties and they come in so many pretty colors and shades.  Make a card or project that makes use of a rose or a bouquet of roses.

For my card, I used Stippled Roses from Stampin' Up, and a Hero Arts sentiment.  They are stamped in black on white vellum, and colored on the reverse side with cameo and celery reinkers and a paint brush.  To hold the vellum on the card, I pierced four holes, and inserted celery brads.

Please join us in this challenge, linking your card or project to our blog HERE.
