Brighten your days!

 
If you follow me on Instagram, I posted a picture of my bed last night.  It was a pup tent in my living room.  Payton, my daughter, has been sleeping in there for over a week and she's been asking for a "camp out".  Since I was off today, I told her we could do it.  Let's just say that this body isn't sleeping on the floor again without an air mattress!!!  I'm sooo sore.....first the right hip, then the left hip, then my back, etc etc etc.  :) 
 
So with my day off except for swimming lessons and loads of laundry, I whipped this up for the current CAS(E) this Sketch! using some Verve goodies and a new paper pad, Beautiful Life from Echo Park.  This paper collection is packed with COLOR!! 
 
****There is even a Verve SALE going on right now through June 30th!!!  There are stamps, dies, and ribbon!  Click HERE to see the sale!****

I had a little fit with my sewing machine for this one.......and my stitches still aren't right but oh well!!!  Going to have to mess with my tension......but first gotta find the book.......
 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!!  Stay cool where you are!

Great card. Love the colors, and that little frame is amazing. Great sentiment, and love the little enamel dots. Your stitching looks fine to me. I won't even drag my ancient machine out! Have a great weekend. Bev

The boys make Patrick "camp out" all the time...
right in the middle of the floor!
No way am I doing it...
I learned my lesson about camping when he put me a tree root...
and I know a hard floor is no better...
1st and last time!
Fabulous card...
