Sunshine and Rainbows

 Hello and welcome!
The other day was a very exciting one for me.
I met Jules, one of my fellow design team sisters face to face
for the first time from the
We had a nice visit, getting to know each other better,
and having a good time.

(Don't mind the mess. We recently moved and we are still 
trying to figure out where things go!)

Jules made quite the impression on Colby. We tried to
get him in the picture with us, but all he wanted to do
was play tug-of-war with her!

We look forward to getting together when she's in town again. 😊

Yesterday was a sunny, but another very cold day here, so
I spent some time making some bright, cheerful cards.

I played with the color arrangement and created
some more cards:

I've had this stamp set for a few years and I think only
used it once, so it was time for it to see some ink again.
I love how you get a different look to the rainbow
simply by changing which color you start with!

Well, that's it for now. Colby is in my face telling me
he wants to go out. LOL! Thanks for visiting,
and I hope you have a great day!
