*Falling Flowers*

One more sleep here in Regina and then it's time to head home to my husband and my Milo-pup. I sure miss them!

We've had a good relaxing time here with Mom. Just doing what we want when we want, eating too much, enjoying Mom's company. It's different this year without my sister and her daughter here for a visit at the same time. We miss them.

I am slowly but surely running out of the stash of cards I had made to post. There are only a few more. I hope to not be stamping too much when I first get home... I want to get out with the kids and enjoy this short summer that we have in Calgary. If the weather is great, I want to be outside doing something or reading a good book! You might want to subscribe or add me to your Google Reader to save you popping by to see if I've posted.

It might only last a little while though... I know I'm missing creating right now!

Did you notice the new item on the right side of my blog? It's under my photo... it says "Blogging Without Obligation". I just love this idea... I don't think we should feel obligated to post all of the time. Post when you have the time. Post when you have something to share. And if you read blogs, just enjoy it when there is something new to see!

So I won't feel guilty about not posting every day during the summer... instead I will post when I have things to share. I will stamp when the weather isn't perfect summer weather... because really, I should be outside with the kids enjoying the sunshine!

On to the card for today.

I saw something similar to this at Paper Pastimes a few weeks ago and thought I would give it a try. The blue flower on the right side of the card is actually on the inside of the card... I punched through the front of the card and put this flower on the inside.

Again, I have no idea who makes the patterned paper that I used. Dang notes....

Today's card is adorable, love the striped paper and how the flowers match. You are already in my google reader, could you tell. I love it, google really hit a home run with that.

Thank you for that "blogging without obligation" link. I LOVE that and have added it to my blog too.

That paper is My Mind's Eye Tres Jolie (oh la la--happy)! *lol* I only know that because I used it recently. I have to say I too decided this summer was a guilt free summer. I love blogging but summer only comes once a year and I just want to enjoy time with my kids! So good on you for taking the time for your family too. Have a safe trip home. We may be heading to Regina in December...RCMP graduation for a friend of ours...now if we can only get him posted back!

Verrrry pretty - I am so into striped paper at the moment so I really appreciate seeing another great idea to try out.

I really like the motto of "blogging without obligation" - I don't enjoy stamping under pressure as stamping for me is supposed to be for enjoyment so I can imagine you feel the same about blogging guilt free.

Hi Nancy! I love this card and your blog. I love too what you posted about blogging without obligation. Sometimes we can get to caught up in it. I wanted to give you a big thank you for my birthday card. I finally have a camera and I was able to post it to share with others. Thank you so much for thinking of me! I noticed you have an approaching birthday too;) Thanks again!

This card is so sweet. I love the colors. They're very similar to the card you sent me. Thank you so much for that. I just added it to my blog right now. It's really my style. THANKS.

Nancy, I love seeing your cards. I am new to rubber stamping and having a hard time---as there are no shops around here to learn, so I got the Rubber Stampers Bible and I think it will help. Great job. Hope you get lots of relaxing.

So cute! And thank you for the blogger RAK! I posted it on my blog, but also wanted to make sure I said something here too!

Many Blessings!

Great Card! It's always so nice to get home after being away for awhile. I'm already subscribed so no problem...and I agree we shouldn't stress over our blogs..we should enjoy living, posting and reading at our own pace.
