Many Thanks

Hope you all enjoyed your Memorial Day holiday! Mine was pretty low key but that's just what I wanted. We did take a drive on Saturday to check out a classic car show. It was a perfect day with gorgeous weather and the venue was Rainbow Falls State Park which is a beautiful and tranquil setting.

Did you notice the new widget in my sidebar? Stampin' Out Alzheimer's is a "pay to play" virtual papercrafting event that runs to June 1st. All proceeds go to the Alzheimer's Association. Most of us will be touched by Alzheimer's at some point in our life...a friend, a parent, ourselves. It is such an insidious disease and robs us of our loved one before they physically leave us. My former mother-in-law has Alzheimer's and it has been so difficult watching her first lose her ability to do her day to day functions and then gradually ceasing to recognize her grandchildren. They were the light of her life, and they miss her so much. Please click on the "Give" button and donate and then join the fun at Stampin' Out Alzheimer's for great challenges, give-aways, and prizes!

This card was made with Studio G clear stamps. You know the kind you can find for $1.00 at various craft stores. They have some of the cutest little images. I used Basic Grey's Mellow patterned papers and added a little hardware and gingham ribbon.

Hope your week ahead is wonderful.

It's all about the details:
