Thank You for Loving Me

Hello friends~it's been awhile since I last posted.

I was blessed to have my parents visit~it was a blast!

It was also really busy....but FUN busy.

I created this card to share how loved I feel right now...

~I have a focal flower and sentiment to mimic Maile's gorgeous design
(which you can see at CASE Study)~

It is warm enough to play outside~YAYYYYY, it's about time!!!

I'll take it...bugs,pollen and all!

Should I start complaining about bugs and heat, y'all remind me of the cold,blustery winter we had.

That ought to snap me back to gratefulness. ;)

Hi Marlena - how wonderful to spend time with your parents! Moments to treasure - and you most certainly do. They're blessed to have such a loving, thoughtful daughter. Your card is heart-warming, and such a good reminder to thank the people who love us for doing so. Gratitude, indeed - so easy to give! So, in response to your card and your post: I'm grateful for you! Thank you for sharing your creative gifts with us, because they make our days just that much more special! Enjoy your Sunday, along with the bugs, pollen and heat :)
