OH Happy Day!!!



We are having a great time here in Redington Shores, although at this moment there are thunderstorms and lightning flashing in the sky. We were just checking the news too and apparently parts of Florida have had blackouts and been without power today, so we're lucky we didn't have to deal with that!!



Yesterday we spent the day enjoying the sunshine on the white sandy beach for a couple of hours and then we did a bit of shopping in St. Petersburg. Today we took a drive and visited Myakka River State Park. Al is a bit of a nature lover and Emileigh and I.....well, we're.......not. But we actually enjoyed ourselves.




We walked through some nature trails, traveled across a canopy walk several stories above the trees, took an airboat ride and saw lots of wildlife. We saw a bunch of those little lizards (eek....I hate them) and lots of different types of birds. We caught sight of several alligators and one came right up out of the water to eat a fish and gave us a little show. On our way out of the park we saw a wild boar with several of her cute little babies, so that was kind of cute!

But here is another Magnolia card for you, this time using the new tree stamp!! I also used Tilda with her birthday cake. I used the colour combo from the Ginger Blossoms dp by SU although I didn't use that paper. I did use some of the Groovy Guava dp and a River Rock card base. I found some tiny Prima flowers that matched the Ruby Red colour, so I decided to put some blossoms in my tree. Also the tree stamp has the heart shape carved out of the trunk with a plus sign in the middle and I added the T and the E for Tilda plus Edwin! The happy day sentiment comes from a new acrylic set that I got, but obviously I'm not and home and I can't remember the name of the set. Then I used my little slot punch to make a place to add the Groovy Guava ribbon. Simple layout but cute, right??

Anyway, I'm not sure what we'll be doing tomorrow as it's going to be cool for the next couple of days. My vote is for shopping.....I'll let you know if I win!!!

Wow! All these Tilda cards are amazing!!!

On a different note, I love the way you spell Emileigh. My daughter's name is Emily but I wanted to spell it like your's, but I have trouble with people spelling my name wrong and I only have one letter that's different. LOL

May I link to you? Hope you're having a wonderful time!

Hi Kimmie, I was just reading about your visit to Florida. Tampa is 100 miles from me, but when you were at Myakka State Park, you were only about 30 min. from where I live, Arcadia, FL. Glad you had a great time here.
