Sympathy Bouquet

As promised, I was able to get another card done despite a very busy and full day.  I was on the 6:40 train this morning headed for my dentist in Toronto then did a bit of city shopping after the appointment.  This afternoon, I met a friend for lunch and some more shopping.  By then, it was almost time for dinner after which I got at this card.  I found this very pretty floral image on a website and was able to match it almost perfectly with some paper I had from ages ago (it matches better in person; the colour in the photo is not really true-to-life).  It's sometimes difficult making cards that have to go through Canada Post as they can't be too "poufy" or you get into special envelopes and extra postage which is a pain for people.  I'm looking forward to jumping into bed and just relaxing for a bit - lots to do tomorrow!

New toys

I finally bit the bullet and went out this weekend to buy an Ipad.  I have got quite a bit of use out of my Ipod touch but sometimes find the screen a little small for photo viewing and such.  Anyway, this is my first photo with the Ipad and it seems to be pretty good quality.  Mind you, Kona doesn't have a bad side so he's a pretty good test subject!

Summer has arrived

It feels as though summer has officially arrived.  Today was hot and steamy, even early this morning when I went for my walk, and it was nice to get back inside the air conditioning.  Sadly, there was another case of someone leaving their dog in the car while they strolled the shopping mall.  The dog died and the owner was charged with animal cruelty but, really, what good does that do the dog?  Seriously, these people should all be shot.

This card is made with some bits of paper that I had in my collection and some pretty hot pink ribbon.  I have had the tag for quite some time (EK Success) and added some Prima flowers, rub-on and lace.  Hope to do some more posting later in the week.  Enjoy what's left of the weekend!
