CQC #200 & Ink. #5 ~ You're Such a Blessing!

Excuse me...is it REALLY August already? Where did July get to and for that matter where did June go!!??!! Before we know it the leaves are going to change colors. Time flies huh. So did this day. I can't believe I'm posting my card so late. We had a little adventure today. We took a river trip! Our son & daughter-in-law were in kayaks and the hubs and I were in a canoe. What a fun day! We saw turtles , blue heron, hawks and THE sweetest little fawn. Sweet thing still had it's pretty little spots!!  And our morning started off with a TV repair. Thank heavens my hubby can fix so many things. He spent $24 on parts to repair our TV that had no picture. Truth be told I think he was hoping it wouldn't work so he could get a bigger TV. Men sheesh...I think a 42" TV is big enough. Anything bigger and we would have to sit in another room to watch it!

I have a sweet summery card that I'm entering over at the ColourQ.
This is their 200th challenge! WooHoo way to go ladies!!
I'm also linking this up at my sweet blog friend Mynnette's Inkspirational.
They have an anything goes challenge this week!


I used an assortment of PTI flowers and leaves along with this sentiment by Stampendous. A few fluttery butterflies courtesy of my MS punch and a sprinkling of rhinestones. That does it for me tonight friends. Off to take my sweet boy Max for a walk. Thanks for popping in ~Lisa

I really love how you used the colors, Lisa--great card! What a wonderful time with your son & his wife. I've never been in a canoe, that I remember, but we do a lot of bird watching from our boat at the lake & blue herons are one of my favorites!
