Yes, today was Monday!  I don't know about you, but it Mondays never use to bother me much, but lately they have been one thing after another.  Seems like everything breaks loose on Monday and this Monday was no exception.  My hubby went to put some water in our swimming pool this morning, since it's been so hot and dry we've had to add water more than usual.  Not a lot mind you, but some every week.  Well this morning when he turned on the spout.........nothing, nada, no water!!!  He came in the house and not a lot of water pressure, went back out and there was finally water, but we've been having these type of problems for almost 2 weeks.  It has been very dry with little to no rain and on top of that the farmer down the road has been running his irrigation pumps which doesn't help the water situation for the neighboring wells.  Farmers have crop insurance if they're crops fail, but we don't have insurance if our well goes dry and we certainly don't have the money for a new one so we are praying and hoping that this is only a temporary thing and we aren't forced to doing anything drastic like dig a new well or even have to add pipe.  None of which will be cheap.  So instead of worrying about it I took off with my sister and my youngest daughter and rode along to the city with them.  Nice day for a drive, but sure glad for air conditioning. *Ü*

So what does this all have to do with stamping and paper crafting you ask?  I'm getting to that part.  I mentioned it was so dry, well here is a flower that doesn't need any watering.  LOL!

This is a flower like on page 70 of this years catalog.  Now my idea isn't fully finished and I will try and get to that tomorrow if I can, but here is the start.  But not to leave you without a finished project............

I made this card using the fun new set Reason to Smile.  This set is only available for the month of July for $5 and only with a $50 purchase before tax and shipping.  You won't want to miss out on this fun 2-step stamping set.  What I used:

Paper: Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green, Whisper White, Primrose Petals
Ink: Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, Certainly Celery and Gumball Green Markers
Other:  Primrose Petals 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon, Apothcary Accents Framelits, Bitty Banners Framelits, Fancy Fan Embossing Folder

How did you make the flower that can also be seen on page 70. Did you use a punch and cut some place.
Thank you
