See you all again soon!

I will be hosting 3 different groups of family over the next 4 weeks; and probably won't spent too much time blogging~  I have all my grandkids coming, my 2 daughters and some Ohio family too!
Looking forward to it.

So I wanted to say THANK YOU! for all your visits and comments here on my blog.
YOU are a blessing to me! : ) And a ray of sunshine in my life~
THIS IS MY 50th POST!  I can hardly believe it.  YOU are an inspiration to me : )

I hope you are enjoying your summer!?  I sure love the warmth and sunshine.  And all the smiling flowers dotting my yard!

Here's a few simple  "Thank You"  card tags below.  Made for 2 of my sisters who have been helping me with a backyard project : )

Some  papers are from
(The Scrapbook Diaries)  and the MOP buttons from one of Liz's auctions~

 The 'Paris Arc of Triumph' was a postcard from a really cool set my sister gave me a few years ago~   She often says "Merci, butter cups!"

I (personally) like to see details and texture, so I included a close up of the bow  - in case you do too : )

The birds, butterflies, hearts and flowers are rub-ons.  *Remember my mini lecture about 'using them up' before they dry out!?! LOL

Buttons are so sweet~

Again, thank you dear friends!
 I hope to join in on Wen's next "SIMPLY NEUTRALS TUESDAY" link party! 
Please stop in to see what she has to share in the beautiful world of neutrals~

Take care and hope to return in a few weeks; but I will try to stop in if I can : )
Blessings,  Karen~

  13. Hello dear Karen, Sorry for only seeing this post today, I don`t know what happened, other, than we have been so busy after selling our house, and buying another one, with packing.
    Your tags are so lovely, and the details I love seeing ,too. So beautiful with bow and tags ,and extra attention with the buttons, too. I`m off to catch my own granddaughter ,she will be visiting here for a week, and I`m sure you are as exited to see yours as I am to see Mathilde :-) Enjoy the family time, Karen, and see you again, later dear !! Hugs, Dorthe
