I LOVE to create greeting cards. This is a place
for me to share some of my favorite cards with family,
fellow card-makers,and friends.
Update: Since I began this card-making blog in 2009, we have moved to a warm, sunny place, retired, and gotten very busy. Even though my love of making cards has not lessened, my time "for" card-making has diminished. I had actually considered taking down my blog because of my lack of time to make and post cards. Instead I will try to post more regularly with a variety of things. Please bear with me while I attempt to expand my topics.
Our Trip to Sanibel
It has been almost a week since we embarked on our 3.5 day drive from home to Sanibel. Pulling the trailer went very well and that was a big relief. Both Reilly and Molly the dog were great travelers! We were so happy when we finally pulled into Ft. Myers. We were almost at our destination! A quick trip through the Pulbix grocery store for some provisions and we were headed to the causeway. Reilly was pretty patient while we got the trailer unloaded even though he wanted to jump into the pool right away. He has just loved being able to swim as much as he wants to. We invested in some pool toys and have had so much fun. We stopped at the beach between rainstorms the other day. Papa and Reilly spent some time at the Sanibel Rec Center yesterday playing air hockey, foosball, and some other fun games. (There was an "old ladies pool exercise class" according to Reilly, so they didn't swim there then.) LOL! Mike is pressure-washing the pool deck right now. He is going a great job. Reilly and I put together a four foot floor puzzle today which was a gift from Bonnie (our realtors' daughter who is a senior in high school this year). You'll see the pictures of the finished puzzle in the slideshow! Thanks, Bonnie! Right now our plan is to swim if it is still raining (but not lightning, of course!) and then fish when the rain stops. And we will need to get something to cook for supper, too. Maybe we will go to Jerry's for some groceries and show Reilly all the tropical birds there!
