Timeless Tuesday...Friday night

Well guess what people??? I'm really late this week and I think this is a first, my posting a TT on a Friday and in the evening no less. Well so what I said to myself...better late then never and because the phrase says you're so sweet...just be sweet and accept my lateness. You're supposed to use your favorite stamp and die cut but hey how can there be a fav with the Flourishes sets??? Can't happen so I decided I would just choose the Strawberry Set cause it's time for home grown strawberries in let's see like Florida or somewhere right? I do love this set and I guess since I use the circle die so much I guess it's one of my favorites. Just found some sweet paper at our now closed scrap book store and thought it would do nicerly and so away I went with it. Punched the little fancy phrase holder and stamped my heart away. Used some bias tape type ribbon and that was that.
It's been so hot here I've been taking my DGD to swim as much as possible. Went to a city type pool today and spent over 3 hours in the sunshine and wonderful clean and cool pool. What fun. No cool guys in Speedo's though which I guess is a blessing. We had fun and we are now going to rent the movie Mirror  Mirror and have some popcorn and snuggle time. Have a great weekend fellow stampers and if you see any cute cowboys keep me in mind as I'm still searching.

Timeless Tuesday...what's on your desk?

Well it's time once again for Timeless Tuesday and we are to take a look at our desk and create from it. Well I just got this adorable set Summer Blossoms from DD's stash yesterday and  it was on my desk sooo.... I did what I was told for a change and made up a card with it. My card base is sort of lime green and I had some scraps of patterned paper so I went with what was laying around. Now I do a bit of laying around lately because of all the cotton in the air. Nasty stuff that makes my eyes and nose run so that's why I have perched my buttox on my living room couch and just plain cuddled up with myself. As you all know I would rather cuddle with a cowboy but no such luck. But this was an easy peasy card and colored with the old water colored pencils, added a Bow Easy bow and I'm pretty much done.
Got a new Hospice patient that I haven't met yet...that happens Thursday. My boss told me he is a hunky guy but has Alzheimer's so all he does is smile. You know what?? I can live with that cause come on now who doesn't like a good looking guy smiling at them. I for one am all for it. I'll let you know how it all comes out. So be good or bad fellow stampers and have a great week.

Timeless Tuesday...Father's Day

Timeless Tuesday...Father's Day at Flourishes... celebrate your Dad. Well my darling Dad has been gone now for 17 years, but I really wish I could give him a big hug and tell him what a wonderful father he was to me. Sweet, kind, and so very musical. He would sit with me and make me practice my piano lessons until he felt I was good enough to be heard. He sang with the Barbershoppers for years and fact he quit when he was in his 90's because my Mom didn't want him driving anymore. He serenaded all the family at their weddings with his favorite for the occasion...Let Me Call You Sweetheart. He passed away on my DH's birthday on May 7, 1995 and wasn't here to sing for my Julie's wedding and I know she would have loved it.  So dearest Dad I say to you...thanks for the memories.

My paper is from Simple Stories and the phrase is from last year;s stamp set for Father's Day from Flourishes called What A Catch.
This card also qualifies for the challenge to use a letter in your art...Thursday challenge at Flourishes.
Hope you all have a great time with your father and honor him to the moon and back.

GS's new RIDE !!! Like WOW!

Well yesterday my GS Cal was gifted his first ride from his parents. I think he loves it. He was dumbfounded when they gave him the keys and told him there was something out front that was his. Needless to say he was shocked and so happy. It's a sweet Dodge Ram pick up and I know he will have many good times in it. Doesn't get his actual driver's licsence for another month or two but how sweet it is.
