This card is for my neighbor. Actually, I've only met three or four of my neighbors. (I'm never outside, especially since it's been like a thousand degrees here ever day this summer) This lady stopped by to meet me. She's from up north and new to the area just like I am. We talked a few times and swapped stories of our moving difficulties. The neat thing is she is a Christian. I ran into her when we were visiting a church a few weeks ago. We are finally going to get together for lunch or breakfast on Friday so I thought she needed a card.

I have another neighbor that I talk to every afternoon at the bus stop. I'll have to make a card for her so that I can tell you about her. (wink)

This little monkey is so cute. I stamped the tree part of the image three additional times. I colored it and cut it out before I added it using a double stick tape runner.

I'm still playing with taking pictures at different times of day, with and without sunlight.

I did finally figure out what to give for my blog candy, and as soon as my random number generator gets home from school, I'll let you know who gets it and what it is. I figured I would take a picture of him holding the prize.

Cute card, love that little monkey. Your neighbors will soon find out how lucky they are you are there, maybe you will find a few more stampers.

This card is so cute...!!!!
I found your site a while ago and lost it after my laptop was repaired. At that time you were in Michigan, now I see you are in Atlanta Ga. and that is great! Take care now.

Love all your latest cards! The monkey in particular is just adorable.
As for your dead flowers, same just happened to one of mine and I couldn't be happier. I'd completely given up on it and was about to toss it. Of course, I thought of you immediately, when I saw it coming back to life!!
