Let's celebrate

   I just finished making a birthday card for my youngest sister, Adrianne. She is coming in from Mass. with my other sister, Phillis, who is flying in from Florida. We are going to have a week of fun in the sun. The Yarmouth Clam Festival is this week, too. We will be hitting that this afternoon with the parade on Main Street. Love summer.....
   Anyway, I really hadn't done much in my craftroom with the garden and shopping at Brimfield this past weekend... More fun.. I enjoyed working with paper again. This is the card I designed for Adrianne.
Happy Birthday, Adrianne!
Russ and Marilyn ???
   I got to use my new Spellbinder's die cut. I love the look and it's perfect to add pearls onto. The stamp is from Memory Box. First time I've use one, too. The little birds are from Martha Stewart's bird punch. I just cut them off the strip. I love the aqua colors I used with the white . One of my favorite colors.
    What could I do with one of these???

   Two of my sisters and their husbands went with Russ and I to Brimfield, Mass. last weekend to the Antiques and Collectibles event there. It was awesome. We walked in the ninety degree heat for miles and miles. The second day was a tad color, but not much. We loved it , though. Here are a few pics from that fun.


Wouldn't you want this on your front lawn?

This is just a small section of the show.

Waving hands...


  1. I love Adrianne's card! That Spellbinder's die is neat! Love it! We really did have fun in Brimfield! I am in for September!

  2. Connie,

    Your sister's birthday card is so lovely. I recognized the Memory Box stamp right away. I hope everyone enjoyed the clam festival. I've been busy myself with trying to keep the gardens watered and haven't been on the computer as much.
