Celebrate (on the patio!)

celebrate

Good morning!  Happy Mother’s Day!  I had a lovely afternoon yesterday, alternating between time in the studio and time on our sundeck (see picture below!).  I cracked open a new paper pad to use with this week’s Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge :)  The Say It Loud set is still in my little desk organizer so I chose a stamp that hadn’t seen ink yet :)

So here’s a photo of what is keeping me out of the studio this weekend…

This was taken in the morning so the deck was in the shade…we get the sun in the afternoon :)  Seriously, if I didn’t have to work or stamp, I would be here ALL THE TIME!  I am blessed :)  Have a lovely day and if you’re like me, you are remembering your mom and wishing she were here :)

Blessed indeedy, Diva! Just look at those views!!!! So long as you leave the suncream out for this pale Duchess, I'd be there all afternoon :)
Your seam binding skill has me in awe, Diva! I seriously can not get the stuff to behave for me...maybe I need to have a lesson LOL!

Love black and turquoise. Great take on the sketch. I'm drooling over your deck - what a great place to hang out. Enjoy some of the sunshine for me and Happy Mother's Day to you :)
