Happy summer everyone.
The days have been unusually cool this year. We have had the windows open for the majority of the summer and have turned on the central air a few times on the hot days.
Hot days here are no where near the inferno of Houston. Houston weather has been permanently ingrained in my sweat glands. When we start to plan a visit to see my mom, my brain automatically sends messages to my pores to start producing perspiration.
All the Texans will appreciate the gravity of my next statement. When I lived in Houston, we did not have central air conditioning! For about two weeks in the month of August my parents would splurge and turn on the window unit. That's right, I said no a/c in Texas! I have post traumatic sweat disorder. We take any trip and my first question is, "Is there a/c?"
Moving on.... early this summer I went to the Understand Blue Unwind Retreat in Texas. I took my daughter with me and she decided to stay with her grandparents. The beginning of summer dragged without my little sweet petunia. I felt like I had left my heart in Texas. I think there may be a country song by that title.
I decided to make her a card using Mama Elephant's Bear Hugs. I had the perfect background stamp from Purple Onion Designs. The stamp is called The Perfect Spot. This was my first watercolor card video.
My little sweet petunia will love it. I say will because by the time it arrived to Texas she was headed home. My mother-in-law will be mailing it back.
Please enjoy the video. The narration is a bit choppy. I did edit it down quite a bit because it took forever to make this card.
Thanks for stopping by!
