You're so sweet

Good Morning! Hope everyone's weekend is going good so far. As I stated in my last post my husband and I wanted to take a ride down to the beach and along the coast. Well I am glad to say that we were able to do that yesterday. It was a nice ride and enjoy being able to get away and just having time with only the two of us. We have to go through a mountain pass from the high desert where we live now. You could tell the difference in weather as so as we started going through the mountains. The beaches were overcast but still nice for a bike ride and even going to the beach. There was a volleyball tournament going on and saw even a few sailboats in the ocean.
I was over at my daughter's one day last week to do some crafty things. She has a cutting system on her machine so she bought the cut file from My Time Made Easy and she cut some of the flowers. She played with one so we could see how they looked. She gave me a couple that she had cut so I came home and played with one myself. She also told me about a challenge over at Belles 'n Whistles that was to use your own flowers that you made so what better way to use this flower. You had to use one of their images so she let me stamp some that she had. It was really hard to decide which image I wanted to use but when I this image I just loved it so I had to color her. I love my copics for coloring. When I showed it to my DH and told him that I never thought I would enjoy coloring again he kind of chuckeled a bit and responded with "and you can also stay in the line". I had to laugh at that one.
Have a good rest of the weekend.
Thank you for stopping by,
Liz
