Father's Day approaches

We enjoyed a big family get together for Memorial Day - loved having all the family together in one place. A few were missing but only because of distance and obligations. We played games and ate our fill of the beginning of summer fare; salads and BBQ pulled pork sandwiches, baked beans, deviled eggs, chips and dips, hot dogs and all the fixin's. Two kinds of cake were for dessert and a very special strawberry lemonade. With some of the strawberries I got last week I made a batch of strawberry vodka and we used the concoction to make the grown up lemonade. Yummy!

I have been working on a few cards for Father's Day that I will share here. Masculine cards are sometimes difficult for me but I do like working on ones for Father's Day. Enjoy.

Back Again after home repair

The new furnace, air conditioner unit and hot water heater have been installed and seem to be working just fine. Many days of stress are a thing of the past again. I have been back in the craft room a bit. Many summer birthdays are coming and I try to send my Mom a card each week so I have been trying to be productive. Here are a few recent makes.
