Hello Peeps! Anyone else practically melting from a nasty HOT,HUMID HEATWAVE the past few days??? Even I have my limits- when the air is so heavy you feel like you can't breathe, and the heat index gets to 116 F- I stay in! Thankfully it is almost over and will be much more pleasant the remainder of the week.
Above is #43 of 61 for the Index Card a Day Challenge and there's a special reason I began the post with this one in particular...
Our son Todd proposed to his girlfriend Kyra of almost 5 years while they were away with her family on a two week camping trip. He asked her to marry him during their visit to Banff Alberta Canada to Lake Louise- the most beautiful and photographed lake! Yes, he totally surprised her:) My hubby was SURE Todd was going to propose and I was just thinking "yeah, it could happen, maybe". They told us just after they got home by showing us their photos of the trip- and when they got to this first pic Kyra put her ring on(she had it in her pocket cuz she knew I would notice it right away:)
Of course we are OVER THE MOON with joy!! We always said she is the girl we didn't have and now it will be official! And yes, I cried like a baby.
This past Sunday I had a celebration dinner for my Mom's birthday and Todd and Kyra's engagement, and of course, nothing but champagne to toast with would do:
Cheers to the T Stands For Tuesday gang! (Not sure of this posting if my ATC mail was received so I will post that pic next week).
This tag is meant for several challenges- the Simon Wednesday Challenge (make your own background), Tag Tuesday (circles), Moo Mania and More (summer holidays), and the Simon Monday Challenge (not a card):
The background was done by smooshing alcohol inks from a craft mat onto heavy cardstock. I then stamped circles over it using white gesso and bottle caps. Vintage image, word, and Gold German Seashell border are from ARTchix Studio. Other supplies: blue Posca pen; black gel pen; sand; found seashells; mica flakes; blue multi eyelash yarn. Thinking about my upcoming beach vacation:)
And now here is another week's worth of index cards I've posted on Instagram for the challenge:
#44/61 I made this one on July 14th in honor of Bastille Day
Also joining Paint Party Friday. Have a super week!
