What ever happened to my Sunday morning coffee post?

Well, I can only say one thing....warmer weather! One of my most fav things in the world to do in the spring and summer weekend months is to take my morning coffee outside, stroll around the yard, pick weeds here and there, check the temp of the pool and this year, watch the finches eat out of their new bird feeders hanging close to my deck. Because of my purely selfish simple pleasures, my Sunday morning coffee post will have to get put on hold until the snow flys again, or, if we have REALLY crappy weather on a Sunday morning and I'm forced to sit in the kitchen.

With that said, today I'm switching it up to a Sunday evening post while I sit at my kitchen table looking at the early evening sun shining on my yard, finches in my feeder, and Criminal Minds marathon on A&E.

Last week was a pretty busy week for me because I had the work gals over on Thursday night for dinner to celebrate one of us retiring. Of the eight of us, she is the second to go and the remaining six just sit and wait for our turn to come. Another couple should hit the good life within the next two years and for the remaing three of us, well, we've got another 4-6 years to wait. Of course I was in charge of the card for the occassion and decided on Lulu's TWO pies from Stamping Bella's Lulu Collection. Sentiment is from Amuse and I bought it at my local store, Pickle.


Isn't she the cutest! OMG! And the best part was that our retiree gal said that baking pies was one of the things she wants to enjoy when she doesn't have to get her butt out of the house for the day job! The entire evening was perfect!

Little Lulu was paired with Basic Grey curio paper, stamped on bella's BESTEST paper and coloured with the following copic markers.

E000, 00, 11, 21, 11, 50, 51, 53
E30, 31, 34, 42, 43, 44, 23, 25, 27
YR15, YG25, R11, 21, 32, 35, 20

Don't forget, our challenge this week over at bloggabella is HERE COMES SUMMER....so whatever summer means to you will work as long as you use a Stamping Bella image. http://stampingbella.com/blog/

Till next time, Linda
