2 May 2008 Comfort!!

How beautiful and peaceful is this image??!
I fell in love with this image at Ellen's store as soon as I saw it, but I kept thinking and thinking - honestly, how would I use it??

Obviously, I have decided not to think anymore - because I bought it and I love it!!

We have similar chairs on our porch (in yellow!) and I love to sit in them with a good book and a cup of coffee and RELAX!! (in the summer....!!)

My poor porch is ready for summer and flowers and people AND a broom! LOL!! These chairs are made of heavy plastic (it takes two of us to move them!) so they can sit out all winter and never need painting- just a good hosing down which is going to happen very soon!! YAY!

My Memory Box Paper Sugar Plum served well for the background of this card and it matched perfectly with Basic Grey's Sultry paper.

The last time I was at the Pickle, Kelly had this beautiful dotted ribbon which sits in a gigantic glass urn - right at the till - rotten I tell ya!

I used the Martha Stewart edge punch tht I bought at Michael's to make a lacy little border and then I stamped the A Muse sentiment underneath.

We may be able to get a wee bit o' golf in today.....I've only been out once this year - a real crime IMO!!


  1. Oh, I love this! It's so sweet and summery! It reminds me of being at my great-grandma's summer house on the river when I was little! :)

  2. I am looking forward to doing the same thing in the hammock chair on my son's swing set. It is one of my favorite places to curl up with a book in the summer. I got in a bit of trouble with my husband last summer because he couldn't find me for an hour because I didn't tell him were I was going. Our entire yard, front and back, is less than a quarter of an acre. He never thought to look in the backyard.

    Isn't it funny how a picture or image can bring back a memory? Great card, colors are wonderful and the ribbon is scrumptious!

  3. Too cute! I love the colors. So bright. Great, great, great!

  4. I love this card! I have loved that stamp forever! Still don't own it myself....but love it!

  5. Beautiful card. Love the punch you used - really dresses up the card and gives it that extra pizzazz.

  6. I love your card Bonnie! Those chairs are comfy indeed! That stamp is gorgeous!
