A Friend is Like a Rainbow

Good Morning

Today my mom and dad will begin their journey home.
It's been a wonderful visit and I'm so glad they were able to come out and visit us.
We had many laughs together :)

I'm on my way to Cranbrook for a couple of days and really hope we don't run into any downpours. The weather has been HORRIBLE here the entire month of June.

This is a card I made using the Paper Players Sketch #101 challenge.
I have used some MFT dies and The Great Outdoors sentiment set.

Life Is Sweet

Good Monday Morning!

I'm REALLY looking forward to this short work week BUT it's going to be a busy one for me.

Today I'm taking Snickers for her follow up vet app't to see if she needs to be on her meds a little longer(my opinion is yes).

My parent's will be starting their drive back to Ontario on Wednesday morning when I leave for Cranbrook.
I'll be out of town until Thursday evening.
Friday we are heading south for a little R & R as it's our Canada Day Long Weekend and school is out! YEAH!

I do hope to get a little stamping in between now and then though :)
