Sorry meant to have up yesterday but it was one of those days, everyone was calling and when I was trying to get finished the cats would say hey lets bother mom. lol Anyway okay I know some will think okay she is adult but I cant help but love how cute the new Winnie the pooh movie looks. Its just reminds me of my child hood and the simple time in life. And every time I see the movie trailer I say AWE POOH...lol So I thought in honor of the movie I would make a winnie the pooh card. I had bought this cart and had not used it so I thought what better time to open it up and craft with it. My gyspy was low on power so I had to play with the sizes so forgive me for not having the sizes of the cuts. Here was my inspiration.
A clip from the movie
And here is my card I made
The movie trailer if you would like to check it out I dare you not to go AWE!
Thanks for looking!

|Not my pup but this is how all the furry friends feel right now.|
Extreme measures to keep cool...lolOkay is it just us or everyone having hot temps, here in Texas its plan misable. Tonight on way home from bike ride I seen a bunny in a yard and it was just sitting there panting. It was so hot it did not hardly move, it said to heck with it I am not moving. LOL Poor thing and it was a big black bunny at that. And as I watered the garden tonight at 9 pm a cat come in our yard panting. Its just been crazy hot here. Be nice if we could get some rain we have not seen rain in a while. I found our ground is cracking by our drive even with watering it. Our garden is not doing so hot in the heat, have lost some of my veggie plants. I am down to tomato's and peppers and bells peppers. So anyway hope others are getting to see rain and cooler temps. I just had to share this photo cause this is how we all feel right now...lol I got it off the local news web site. Well off to craft I have not had time this week so I am going to now. Will post it Friday or over weekend. Thanks for stopping by.

Well I have been busy working around the house last couple of days sorry for no post. So thought I pop in and say hope everyone is having a good July 4th. We stayed home this year so just us two no cook outs or company...lol But I have enjoyed the laid back weekend getting a few things done that needed to get done. But later on we might go see some locall fireworks tonight have not decided yet. But before we go I am going to water our yard really good. We are under burn ban in our county in Texas cause of how dry we have been 80 % of Texas is under extreme historic drought. We are the lucky ones but we are still dry. But with all that we still have people in our housing addition still using fireworks in there back yards. Not little ones the big ones that go way up. And the fire marshal was driving our road last night looking for them to....lol So anyways hope everyone has a safe July 4th and enjoy the day. Will be back with a craft post soon.
