1. Well, we've had a great start & first week of summer...
It started off with going to see Central Intelligence at the drive-in on Canada Day.
The drive-in is located close to the beach, so they actually
paused the movie so we could watch the fireworks that
they set off over the water.
It was pretty cool!
2. We've also done a few of my favourite summertime activities already...
We've gone strawberry picking several times.
The berries are amazing this year!
I love having fresh berries every day, so we go every few days
and pick a couple of pails....
And, we've been going to the beach every day for Sage and Jonah's swimming lessons.
The weather hadn't been fabulous, but I've enjoyed just chilling
in my beach chair, either sketching out card ideas or reading.
3. Believe it or not, I've also done a couple of "kid-free" activities....
First of all, I signed up to play on a slo-pitch team: the Bat Attackers.
I thought I'd be playing right field, but they put me on first base.
And Sage took this action shot of me running to first base.
I got out, but still, don't I look great? ;)
And, last night, I had fun driving around town with these lovely ladies...
The women's group at my church organized a fun
Riddle Me Morden Bible/scavenger hunt.
It was a lot of fun!
4. We still take taekwondo two nights a week through
the summer months.
The other day, when we got out of class, we saw this...
A double rainbow!
It was very cool!
5. And, lastly, I squeezed in a little time in my craft area yesterday
and made a card:
If you know me at all, you know I love participating in online challenges.
Well, it always saddens me that some of my favourite challenge sites
take a break for summer.
So, I decided to try and find some new-to-me challenge sites..
I made this card for the House of Cards July Challenge,
which was a colour challenge:
And for Addicted to CAS Challenge #91:
I started by using my new Hero Arts stencil and new Clarity Stencil brushes
that I got in the mail yesterday morning to create my background.
Then, I stamped my bird (from PTI's Spring Woods) and leaves
(from MFT's Flashy Florals) onto their coordinating diecuts
and my sentiment (from PTI's Winter Woods) directly onto my background.
Thanks for looking!
