Well, I wish I made some cards just for fun, but unfortunately, I found myself in need of sympathy cards. My lifelong friend's father passed away. He and his wife had been married for 54 years! What a remarkable achievement. He had a good life, but is gone too soon.
I was inspired to make this card from one made by Kay Miller
The following card might be a little bright, but I feel it still fits. I cased this one on Clips-n-Cuts
I actually made a third one, but I neglected to take a picture of it! Darn.
It looked a lot like this one. :)
I also made this birthday card. I saw this design somewhere, but cannot find it right now.
My girls and I actually went to California to attend the funeral. It was the very first time my girls had been there and the first time I'd been back "home" in fifteen years. We spent a long weekend. My dad was thrilled (well, except for the reason we went). The service was lovely and a wonderful tribute to a wonderful man.
The highlight of the trip was going to the beach. There was no way we were going to be in CA and not go to the beach. My mom took us kids every Wednesday during summer break when I was growing up. She would drive us through Topanga Canyon, for those of you who might know that route. We used to go to Santa Monica beach, but it's gotten to be such a tourist area, my brother thought it'd be more fun(less crowded) to head to Zuma beach. He was right. We did drive home on Topanga Canyon, though. :)
And look! We saw dolphins! (I asked the lifeguard to be absolutely certain). I've never seen dolphins when at the beach. There were about 6 of them swimming along the shoreline. They'd move out of our sight line and then they came back. I was thrilled to capture them in photos. So cool!
Thanks so much for stopping by.
I truly appreciate the visit.
I hope you are having a good day.
The Opening Ceremonies for the Olympics are tonight. Are you going to watch?
