The second day of July and the weather couldn't be more perfect. It's a little overcast but the temperature is perfect for this transplanted Alaskan girl. The last few days have been so humid you would have thought we were living in the south. I found that my single sheets of scrapbook paper curled because it was so humid. I will have to stick a book on them to flatten them out. Today, it has been just perfect. After July 4 the weather will be close to 90 and that is just a little too warm for me.
I had lunch with a friend and then we went to a few artsy shops where I live. She is local and knows the shops much better than I. We went to a shop called The Framers Touch that I had never been to before eventhough it has been here 9 years and right in the heart of town. What a neat little store. It has jewelery, ceramics, picture framing, glass and tea! The tea and accessories was a total surprise. My friend bought a really cool ice tea pot and I bought some Black Currant tea. I'm going to try some out tonight. Anyway, that shop is definately a place I will be going to again. Their website is http://www.aframerstouch.com/. Check it out!
Yesterday I was working on a card like this but when I stamped the greeting inside I had switched the Happy and the Birthday clings. It read Birthday! Happy. I was not so happy to see what I had done. So, because of the honeycomb balloon, there wasn't a way I could just remove the front of the card and I couldn't restamp it on another piece of paper. The only solution was to start over. My granddaughter loved it though and wanted to have it since I was going to toss it so I guess it wasn't a total waste of time.
Here is the new revised birthday card.
