Blessings and Thankfulness

Hello dear sweet friends -

As some of you already know I had a different post here earlier today.  I have moved that post to my Life Lessons from Hercules Blog which I have been wanting to start for quite some time now.  And so, if you feel so inclined - you can check out my new blog and let me know what you think. (For this card I wanted to use my scraps of paper and other embellishments that are over six months old.  And I achieved that by using the brown lace and butterflies.  In fact, they are almost a year old and I have just been saving them for something special.  

With hugs and smiles

I am also submitting this card to the following challenges:

I just love this gorgeous bride image and she was fun but a little intimidating to color.  In all honesty, I have to learn how to color veils and other sheer items and hopefully it's a class Alyce - Kit and Clowder.  
I hope you will join in the June Challenge and looking forward to seeing what you create with this gorgeous image from Morgan.
Have a great day!!

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…
