Its a hot one...

It is 91 here right now! The dog has taken up her summer spot under the steps, where she digs a big hole in the sand to cool off. My little hummingbird is sitting on his phone line and the smell of the lilacs is drifting through the screen door. Aaaaahhh! I love it!
Julee posted the cutest little sketch yesterday on her blog to celebrate the new Verve releases tonight. It is a super simple sketch and you know I love simple.

I used images from the set Miracles Blossom and the sentiment from Wishful Elegance. The pattern paper is from My Minds Eye. More of my CKC paper! A little bit of SU Ruby Red and Cameo Coral matched pretty well. I cut out the main images with my new Deckled Nesties. LOVE them. As soon as I finish blabbering here I am off to order the other sizes in these babies.

So this is a birthday card (duh) for my Husband's Grandmother. She will be 92 tomorrow. I took her the newspaper this morning and she was.... get this... washing windows. I told her she was making me look bad!

Have a great weekend everyone, thanks for stopping by!

ETA: I had to get a photo of my little hummingbird to show you. (This was the best I could do and this is zoomed in as far as my camera goes. You might be able to click on it to see that it really is a little bird and not just some bump on a line.) He, well I assume it is the same pair but who knows, comes every year and stands guard over the bunch of bushes where he raises his little family. Although I have never seen a nest, I have seen him and his lady flying in and out of those bushes hundreds of times a day. I guess the nests are only the size of a thimble so no wonder I can't find it. I know it is in there though, LOL!
