You're Sew Nice...

Hello there my fellow bloggers.
     Did you all have a great start to your week?  Is it nice and sunny where you are at?  I hope that you aren't stuck with all the rain that seems to be flooding Florida. 
     As most of you know, today was the M&M's official last day school for this year, and because of that at 11:31am their Summer began.  lol... Well as luck would have it that also meant that today was of course a very Sunny and really a nice and toasty day.  :O)   I am happy for them, as Jerry said that even though Madison came home with tears (she is going to miss her friends over the summer) but other than that they both had a great last day at school and a fun afternoon.  Once I got home we were finally able to take them M&Ms out to spend their Graduation money.  After all it was rotting a hole clean through their wallets.  lol... All in all I am so tired, but it was a lot of fun to be out with them and I just love visiting with my kids and seeing how their individual personalities come out.  (Sorry, Mom moment there!)
     So,  getting to today's card I still have a few 'Thank Cards' to make this week, so while I was in my 'Glee' haze yesterday I pulled out Cheeky Howdy and had a great time picking out some fun summery type papers to go with her.  I really wanted to use one of the newer stamp sets that I picked up from Hero Arts so I used it to give the card a more down to earth feel.  lol... I still can not find my pedal for my Jenomi machine so I am stuck with ink stitches at this time.  I know it's here somewhere, but I just haven't wanted to tackle my scrapbook closet yet. Don't ask!
     I'm gonna leave it at that as I really do need to head to bed.  I have the early shift in the morning and no kids to get up and going so I better head off to bed.  Have a great day and I will talk at you tomorrow.
Hugs, Lisa G

I think your hand stitching looks great, never would have known otherwise if you hadn't said something. Great blond hair combo too!

You can never go wrong with faux stitching in my book, LOL! Love the down home country vibe that you created on this card, Cheeky Howdy looks right at home on it!
