Today is amazing


Welcome to another glorious weekend... I'm hoping to get in some swimming after work today as we have finally been catching up with the rest of the country in having some HOT summer days. The cool water of the lake is sounding pretty darn good already and its still early morning!

So I just realized that I made this card for the ATS CHA booth and even had it on the ATS challenge blog early last month but I forgot to post it here. Poor Briar and Sonata were feeling awfully neglected I tell ya! Luckily I came across this pic when I was scrolling through my photo archives and today they are finally making it onto the ol' bloggity blog. :)
I've gotten quite a bit of mileage out of these American Crafts Campy Trails papers so far this summer and I love it when that happens. Means I have a lot less paper scraps to store, LOL! I went with a pretty clean and simple layout design since I was making a guy card and I don't usually fuss those up too much. A little bit of twine, some die cut embellies and I was good to go. I really like how it looks like Sonata is watching that bird but he's not afraid of being made a snack by it because he's got his good buddy, Briar, to watch out for him. 'Cause that's what friends are for... :)

Well, thanks so much for visiting today... see ya in 24!

Amy this is so darn adorable! I am loving these papers and you couldn't have put Sonata and Briar in a better scene. Too cute my friend. I am glad to hear that you guys are hot too. I just found out that school starts on Aug 28th.
I think I am the only Mom in the country that that actually upsets. I hate when my M&Ms have to be in school. So, with that I am heading to work and then we are jumping in that pool to enjoy this small heat wave that we are having lately. :O) Enjoy the lake! Sounds very very refreshing. Hugs, Lisa
