Happy Saturday! Hope you are enjoying the day :) Any big weekend plans? Not much going on for me, just waking up early in the morning around 5:00 am so I can get a bike ride in before it gets too hot. Before you know it, the Mercury is pushing 100 degrees then it's too late. My dear friend Stephanie turned me onto My Favorite Things Stamps and Dies. I immediately fell in love with their gorgeous doilies and matching border dies:
I'm always in need of a Thank You card so that is exactly what I made. I pulled out some Prima patterned paper that I embarrassingly purchased 4 months or so ago, stamped a sentiment from Waltzingmouse Rescue Remedies Additions, adorned with a multi-layered My Favorite Things Decorative Doily Duo Die and a Faux Crochet Border. Topped it off with a flower from Recollections, a seam binding bow and Martha Stewart pearl.
You may have heard on the news the other day about the intense sandstorm, aka: a Haboob, that we experienced here in Phoenix? We live on top of a little mountain that overlooks what is known as the East Valley. Here are some photos that Scott took as we watched the storm roll in engulfing our neck of the woods!
a different angle:
a little bit closer:
Have you ever seen a Haboob? So can imagine how I spent my day off after the storm? If you guessed pressure washing the patio and windows, you hit the nail on the head! Thanks so much for looking! Hope you have a great weekend! I'll be back tomorrow with something to share for the current CR84FN Color Challenge.
