Long time - No Blog Post....
...and, that's life I guess! Well, actually, the no blogging can be completely attributed to some widely FREAK weather here in Wisconsin. We have had day after day of temps in the high 60's to high 70's. It has been beyond lovely. A true gift to a life long Wisconsinite who has endured Easter blizzards in the past. So, one day was spent washing windows. Another was spent raking. Another was spent on a terrifically long walk. Another sitting out in the sun and reading. It has been marvelous.....today, my husband and son went to go get the boat out of storage. Funny, we all know that this strange weather streak will end but still, it is so wonderful to get the late May outdoor work and yard prep done 2 1/2 months early. So, here is my birthday card for my husband. His birthday was March 1 but he was in India and China on a business trip and today is the first time we have been able to sit down and give him his presents. And, it turns out it was a perfect day to give him this card as it ends up being the day he gets his boat out! I had found this wonderful stamp put out by Mo Manning for Penny Black and scooped it up the minute I could get my hands on it. I thought it would be perfect for Joe. The stamp comes with a sentiment that says "Just dropping you a line" which is cute in and of itself but then I found at WhipperSnapper Stamp Designs this absolutely perfect sentiment that also works for a birthday card....esp for a a very belated birthday card! I then used Kathy Racoosin's "Moon" technique but changed it up to a sunrise that would greet a fisherman on his early morning outing! I hope you like! Joe really did and that was so important to me ;-D
I definetely will make my rounds to all the blogs I love to visit...and I see in our forecast that rain is coming but until then will make the most of this fabulous springtime gift of warm days! I hope you are enjoying your life right now too!
