Today is my blog’s one month birthday! Thanks to everyone who has stopped by. I’m having so much fun! I hope that you’ve had an occasional smile while you’ve been here!

Before I get to my card today can I backtrack just a bit? Remember my tulip “painting” a couple of days ago… the one I painted at my friend and neighbor Michelle’s home? Well one of the other ladies (Nan) in the class took some pictures of Michelle’s beautiful work. I just wanted to share them with you. The top two are watercolors.

And this gorgeous tulip one is acrylics.

Oh and check out Nan’s sketch and subsequent painting!

All these gorgeous tulips… Here I am struggling trying to paint just ONE!!

But I decided I have an excuse. See that plate in the lower left hand corner of the picture? Those are coconut macaroons dipped in chocolate. Now seriously… who could concentrate with those intoxicating goodies right under their nose!!

This evening my youngest son had his first high school track meet of the season. He ran the anchor on the 4 X 400 relay. His team came in first! Well if you’ve ever been to a track meet, they run the events in the same order every time. The 4 X 400 is the very LAST event. So the meet started at 4pm. Zach ran at around 7:30! But it was worth the wait to see him cross the finish line! *insert huge grin here*

So I didn’t get a chance to stamp anything tonight. However I still have a card to share that I made awhile ago. While browsing magazines and catalogs I will often see pictures that my brain will immediately twist into some sort of card design. (I think this may be some sort of sickness. Not sure.) Anyway I came across this chandelier in a Neiman-Marcus catalog.
