"Veranda" Cards

I just love the fact that I don't have to think really hard to make cards. The patterns designed for me, dimensions figured out....all I have to do is choose some paper and do the really fun part and embellish.
Again, this is the same pattern, same paper pack, but look how different they are! I LOVE our "How To" progam books! I Love My CTMH!!!!

A Bowl of Cherries - Not!

Our neighbor, Harley, just bought us a bag full of vine rippened cherry tomatoes - still warm from the morning sun. Without even washing them.....I've eaten 5....with just a bit of salt. OMGosh they're beyond good! Thank you Harley!

Playing Tourist

My sister Linda, her daughter Melonie, and 2 dear friends Edna and Angelina, flew up from San Diego, another good friend, Cheryl, flew down from Seattle, and I drove into the city Sat morning . . . all meeting in San Francisco for a couple of days. We went on several bus tours, shopped, ate, saw lots of sites, took lots of pictures and had a blast. Here is a picture of us (after breakfast) at Pergamino's on Sunday morning. Ummmm-good!
Back to the real world now!
