This is the card that I made for the card swap I participate in with my niece and her friends in California, and with a scrapping/card making friend here in Michigan. I actually didn't send it when it was due and sent it as a surprise instead. My son was home from Kuwait on leave when the card was due and I just didn't have the time. Our theme was anything that reminded us of summer or had to do with summer. I love walking on the beach barefoot and the fireworks in the summertime.

Well, the painting is done and the temporary crown molding is up. I also have a temporary work station in place. We are saving for the desk I want and the futon/sofa bed for guests to sleep on. (While my son was home, we used a double-high inflatable queen bed that we use for camping -- it worked just fine.) The chest you will see has yet to be sanded and painted, and I still have to sew curtains for the window and for the closet. The last picture shows the card my kids gave me with my Cuttlebug for Mother's Day. While helping me paint, my daughter asked how I picked the color and I relayed the story about trying to come up with something that wouldn't clash with the carpet. it wasn't until I moved things in that I found the card and realized how much it matched the color on the walls and the color of the carpet. Amazing, isn't it?
