You're special

Ahhhh....summer vacation. I still feel like crap & we reached a high of about 60 today. We had a storm come through around 3:30....tornado warning & everything. In fact, I believe a tornado actually did touch down in the next town over. Lots of trees down, & power outages. My husband called from work, frantic when he heard a tornado had come through. But we got very lucky. Just a rainstorm....no wind, nothing. We actually had quite a storm overnight as well....I woke up around 3 & checked our basement, it was that ferocious. Welcome to June in Wisconsin!




If you are a regular visitor, you know I *heart* Hanglars. My friend Nikki sent me some a while back.....& they're almost all gone! I've seen some of the newer images & they are soooo cute. *hint hint* I colored this cutie with Prismas & gamsol, & used DCWV papers (solid) & The Paper Studio (pattern). The tag is from a huge container I got about a year ago at Michael's. The flowers were a gift last year from Tina, the owner of High Hopes. I sprayed them with Glimmer Mist......I don't think you can see the shimmer but they are really pretty IRL.




Here's a close up.....I also have a boy Hanglar on a bike...hope to use that one soon....I could add some bandages on his knees & he could be my son!! LOL!!




Here's my attempt at photographing the shimmer on the flower....but it looks like it's just a flower...lol....




My clematis is blooming, but it's very patchy.....I can never seem to do right by this plant. Some say cut it in the fall, some say leave it alone. No matter what I do I just don't get the abundance of flowers that I've seen others get. Well, this clump is very pretty.....just pretend my whole plant looks like this!!

I also wanted to let you know.....for anyone who cares....that by the end of the month I won't be listing cards on Ebay anymore. It has become wayyyy too expensive...all the fees....& now the FREE listing service I've been using since I started listing has decided to start charging per transaction. As well as my cards do on Ebay, I feel I'm giving half of it back....to Ebay...to Paypal...& now to the listing service. So, all my cards will be listed in Etsy from now on. Here's a link to my store. There's also a link in my sidebar. I've had it up & running for a while now, but haven't had much time to get a lot listed. I'm hoping to get a lot more in there in the next few weeks. I thank all of you who have bought from me on Ebay, & hope you will continue to do so now that I have moved! I have a couple of listings left on Ebay, which will end in a few days....& I will still continue to list stamps & other miscellaneous things there.....but my cards will be all Etsy all the time. Thanks so much for all of your support!!!!!

Gorgeous card, Michelle.
Your coloring is just amazing, love the papers too.
Your clematis is so beautiful.
I learned over the years that clematis need cool roots, I pile small stones or garden rock around it on the top of the soil.
