Aug 1st was birthday celebrations for my next door neighbour and very good friend, Lisa. She always celebrates her birthday camping in Washington State, USA. They have an RV membership at Beachwood Resort and she often goes down for 10 days or so and her hubby comes back home during the week to work.
They returned home today and I have made her a card and decorated a gift bag to match. The bag has 2 little 6x6 paper pads (she is a card maker too), colourful stick pins, and some paper ribbon that goes with. I tucked in a gift card to her favourite scrapbook store so she could also get something that was more just what she wanted!.
It is a little different than my usual style...but Lisa is a "just do it" type of girl. She shurns out cards like nobody's business. I am usually like the turtle and the hare, compared to her. She will be quite proud of me as I followed her cue and "just got her done"
It is now 30 degrees inside my house and I am going out to do some yard work in the garden...preferably in a shady corner of the garden. Seems like there is always something to deadhead. I really need to be cutting back some of the earlier flowering daylillies but they seem to have one blossom left on each! I think they are resisting the final showdown with the scissors!
