Didn't get chance to post last night and today we went to Davison and found a site to park the 5th on and are now home to get the golf cart and head back. I don't have any cards done that I can show you and can't send more photos as I left everything in camper. So I will try tonight again. I am soooo happy as I got a small portable (weighs only 3 lbs.!) HP printer so I can take it with me and use with my laptop. Can you believe it was Dick who pushed it. That way if he want me to look something up on internet and make a copy I don't have to wait until we get home-good thing as we both usually forget what it was. LOL
Okay will catch you later.

Today was a lot better weather wise in Mid Michigan. I am going to sleep in the house tonight (instead of 5th wheel which has AC) and I get to dream about the new central air and furnace that we are getting in two weeks. WAHOO! Don't laugh, I have been trying real hard to get it and it was only because the doctor told me 3 wks ago that I needed to be in air conditioning or I could end up with a heat stroke (having heat exhaustion was enough for me!). Well enough about that. Let me show you some things I did so far this summer.
I got this idea from a similar project done by someone else. I used the Daisies die cut and craft foam. However the foam had an adhesive backing and it was terrible to peel it off after going through the Big Shot. I glued the 3 daisies together and then put sets back to back with the bamboo stick between each set. I used a jar I had been saving and decorated it with some designer paper and added some flowers (dyed to match the color choice) and some punched flowers. Added some brads for the flower centers. Ribbon wrapped around the top and another contrasting narrow ribbon tied in knot for the front. Inside I filled it with some fiber fill, colored glass rocks, and some poporrui (sp?). I painted the bamboo sticks with some acrylic paint. I love how it turned out and it looks so pretty in my craft area. I originally made it for someone but changed my mind as it makes me smile whenever I see it. Now onto my next project that I want to share.
