CCEE1835 Spring Flowers

For Frances' last challenge, she tells us:
"In my part of the world (Australia), Saturday is the first day of Spring.  Flowers are beautiful any time of the year, so let's see some flowers on your cards this week."

I guess I have to honor our Lois with this shades of orange, her favorite color!

Please join us, linking your card to our blog HERE.

CCEE1834 Ride The Wind Day

Frances tells us:

Today is apparently Ride the Wind Day.  This day was created to celebrate the first man-powered flight.  There are so many things that rely on wind to make them work, so let's include something that needs wind on our cards today.  Some examples include kite flying, windsurfing, hang gliding, sailing boats, birds flying, hot air balloons, balloons, paper airplanes, etc.

Butterflies fly, but save their energy by coasting on air currents.

When I took a look at Facebook to see what was happening with my children and grands...........
this is what I saw:

These CRAZY boys, Tyler, Tommy (our grandson), and John

were back on earth from 14,000 feet!!!!!!!!!!! 
It's a good thing no one told me in advance what these boys were planning!  I'm afraid of heights, so Tommy didn't his risk taking from me.  They had such a good time they'll be doing it again.  YUCK!!

CCEE1833 Bees

Frances tells us Saturday (August 18) is World Honey Bee Day.  She challenges us to include a bee or two on our cards this week.

Today I made a Clean And Simple (one layer) card, using the rubbed crayon embossing technique.
