For Roger

My youngest son had more will power in his little finger than I do in my whole body. He has been going to the gym at least 4 days a week, watching his diet and has lost over 40 pounds in less than 2 months (yes with doctors consults). I am so proud of him.
I really loved the card that Brandi made here:;ppuser=148467

So heres the whole story. I went looking for serene spring first, then I spilled and entire 20oz cup of coffee on my carpeted floor, in the punch box, and all over the outside of about 40 sets of stamps....clean up time.

Looked for serene spring..still couldnt find it. Found soft summer instead..that works,

So I changed the image, changed the colors, changed the layout just a bit.

I kept the scallops with holes. Now I dont have a punch for that so I paper pierced all the scallops one by one. I made a mistake when punching the scallops to start with...really liked the look so I added more.

Brandi's card base is gray so I used 3 shade of light gray copics for the shadows of the dogwood.
