Whatever Floats Your Goat

Happy Tuesday! It's hard to believe that we are headed toward the middle of the week and the end of July. Where is the time going to? Yesterday Tom and I took the day off of work and drove to Indianapolis to look for a mother-of-the-bride dress for me. We looked in countless stores and everything was either black or white or in Tom's words "looked like a table cloth." Finally tried on my first dress at Saks Fifth Avenue. I think I tried on four dresses there. None at any other stores. So we bought one of the dresses I tried on at Saks. It's a long dress. I really had a short one in mind but it was the best one we saw. It's champagne in color and the skirt is really sparkly. I'll try to get a picture of it up sometime.It was after 6pm until we got home and I was beat. Over 12,000 steps yesterday. Shopping is work. LOL! I guess that's why I hate clothes shopping so much.

On the weekend I managed to eke out one card. I've got to get myself in gear and get some cards done. Lots of birthdays in August. Speaking of which, here is an August birthday card.

The inside says "Whatever floats your goat. Happy Birthday" I just love this set. The stamp set is from Doodle Pantry and the sentiment is from Hero Arts Birthday sentiments. The image and layer behind it was cur with Spellbinders Oval dies. I added several layers of paper. I used an OWH sketch. The smaller panel is embossed with D'vine Swirls. This one is for my BIL.

I'm entering these challenges:
I made some zucchini soup this evening from my ever growing number of zucchini from the garden. I am going to have to find recipes for cucumbers next. I have a bumper crop coming. Hope your week is going well.
