Saturday morning...

Wow...this week really got away from me.  Work has been really busy and by the time I got home I was in cruise mode, plus a couple of my favorite shows were season finales...

I did manage to make a couple of cards for challenges this week...


A Father's Day Card for the Crooked Path Challenge over at Crafty Secrets...


I had the most wonderful visit with my parents yesterday.  Such a leisurely day...a long conversation with my youngest on the hour drive to my folks...a little shopping with my mom...some t.v. with my dad...a nice chat with my niece and a fun phone visit with my sister in South Texas, (she says they're in the 90's and humid already)...homemade Mexican food for dinner (yummo)...peppered in with my grandson entertaining us all! 


A Paris themed card for City Crafter Challeng Blog CCCB, which also fits the bill for the color challenge over at The Playdate Cafe Challenge PDCC30...I love when that happens!



I have plenty of housework to catch up on today and then tomorrow hubby and I are spending the day at a park on the coast.  Better get going!

How about you?   Any plans?

Have a wonderful weekend,
Patty

Lovely work Patty. It sounds like you had a great day yesterday. Tomorrow sounds good too! I did a bit of gardening before it got too hot this morning and hubby and I are going to see the horses after dinner.

I LOVE your paper art! :-)
I'm glad you liked my cakes....lettin' you in on a little secret...they are fake. :-0 I made them, but they are def faux. I am going to start making them and selling them on ebay! :) I thought I'd put them on my blog and see if everyone thought they were real before I started selling them....I guess they passed the test!~ LOL
Have a blessed day darlin'!
