Happy Friday! Here's a card made with the new "Fun in the Sun" set from The Cat's Pajamas. I also used the matching "Candy Sprinkles" buttons and ribbon that Alma released this month. The patterned paper is from the "Snorkel" collection by Cosmo Cricket.
Iain's sister is arriving in town a week from today; she'll be here for 10 days. And after that it'll just be a couple of weeks until school starts!
Have a great weekend!

Wow...it's been a long day! We left Maui around 9pm on Tuesday, had to change flights in Seattle and Salt Lake City, and finally got back to Conifer early afternoon today. Tasha was thrilled to see us :) and the cats are all purring contentedly now that we are all home together again.
The vacation was great. We stayed at the Marriott on Wailea Beach - the location was stunning, the weather was perfect (high 80s with a breeze), and we all enjoyed every day there. When Iain and I went to Maui in 2005, we stayed further north in the town of Lahaina, but Wailea Beach was much quieter, and we liked that better. Tomorrow I'll download my photos and post some here.
On a side note, I was happy to read that my blogging friend Sarah (2 Paws Designs) had a healthy baby boy this weekend! Congratulations to Sarah and Trent on the safe arrival of baby Dylan!

The set I chose is called "Chrysanthemum". I was drawn to it because it's one of those sets that can be used for so many occasions: birthday, thank you, sympathy, or even just to say hello. I paper-pieced the flower and leaves with Basic Grey's new "Lemonade" collection.
Have a super day! Your next stop is Joanne's blog :)

The patterned paper is by American Crafts, and the buttons are also by TCP.
I'm heading off to do some packing now - we leave early in the morning for a week in Maui! Yeah! We're all ready for a break and a change of scenery. Wishing everyone a terrific week ahead!

I'm hoping to start up a weekly post on my blog - it'll be called "Featured Blogger Friday", and I'm planning to showcase one blog each week. The blog can be crafty or non-crafty, related to a specific topic or just someone's everyday writing; whatever you think is a great blog to share with the rest of us!
If you'd like to have your own blog showcased, or if you'd like to recommend a blog (or three!), send me an email to email@example.com with a link to the blog and why you think it should be featured, and I'll get this thing started in the next couple of weeks!! I know you all have some great sites bookmarked out there...I look forward to hearing from you!
