Good morning. As you may have guessed, I've returned from my vacation at the beach. It was a very interesting week and I'm so pleased with some of the pictures I was able to get. Now it's time to get back to normal.

As stated previously, our community is having a craft fair at the end of the month. (Our 2nd annual craft fair.) I've been making cards like crazy, so now it's time to share some of the cards I've made. You've already seen a couple of them and here are a few more of the whimsical ones.

I'll be posting some Christmas cards, among others, in the days to come, so stay tuned. In the meantime, have a wonderful day.

Yesterday was a lovely day at the beach. It was hot... that's for sure. The winds were coming from the east until late in the afternoon, then they shifted. Following are some of the pictures I took of the approaching storm.


As we looked up the beach, there appeared to be smoke and we determined that there was a boat fire. (Of course we don't know that for sure.)

Then the rain hit and the skies opened up, the wind blew and it was amazing. After the storm, we figured we wouldn't see a sunset, but this is what we did see.

There is a low spot in front of where we are staying that fills with water when there are heavy rains. After the rains, the seagulls come along and take a "fresh water" bath.

What a joy there is in nature and what spectacular pictures one can capture at the ocean.

To top off this post, here is another whimsical card I made a while back.

Enjoy your day, have a wonderful long weekend, and check back in another day.

Good morning all. It looks like it's going to be an okay day in paradise. We awoke to heavy rains and a little thunder, but it looks like it's clearing now.

After I downloaded my pictures yesterday, a most amazing rainbow appeared so I had to take some pictures to share.

Isn't this rainbow just manificent?

We had company later in the day and just sat around talking. The sun didn't really come out 'til late in the afternoon.

Other then that, it has been quiet here. However, everyday brings something new to watch as the sky and ocean just keep on changing.

Here's a little card I made recently. I decided I'd try making some cards with a stamp set I'd purchased eons ago and never used. That's it for today. Stay tuned and have a good one.

Tropical Paradise

Who says one has to go to the Carribean to have gorgeous tropical atmosphere? We are on vacation at our timeshare on the gulf coast of Florida, and it is simply gorgeous.

The surf is unusually high today; we watched rain approach this morning and it is so beautiful to see.

(I think my camera lense was fogged a bit when I took this shot.) I have more pictures that I want to share later on. However, just for the sake of keeping this post legit, here's a card I made recently. Little did I know that I'd be at the beach when I posted it.

That's it for today. Have a good one and I'll catch you all later.
