Friday's art and pictures!

Its friday after the fourth of July. My day is going to be spent doing my least favorite thing, cleaning the house. Actually the house isn't bad, its the guest room that needs my attention.
My step-daughter is flying here next Tuesday from Spokane, WA. We have not seen here since 2003 and we are so excited! She is 25 and in College but off for the summer. Allison is a really sweet girl, very bubbly personality, and my husbands only child. So next week will be a busy and fun time for us.
We had a quiet July 4th. We just stayed at home and enjoyed the day. My daughter came out and spent the night, I love being with her when I get the chance, and when her calendar isn't too busy. She is excited about seeing her sister too!
I have managed a few artsy projects. The picture above is for a ATC swap that I am in called "Wings". That is a new stamp that I have with the wee ones with wings. The next picture are of another ATC swap that I am in "Paisley" ATCs.

These ATCs were made with some cool Paisley stamps that I have. They abstract but I like them. I used liquid gold leaf to color them. I have several other swaps that I need to work on this week-end. Below are some pictures of my flowers and our flags that I took on July 4th.

And last picture is of a cute birdie who flew in for a Fourth of July snack!
I hope everyone has had a great holiday week. For my friends out west who are suffering from the Heat Wave, I hope you get some relief from the heat, and try to stay cool any way you can.
Have a wonderful week-end!!!

The nice thing about where you live is the abundance of growing things! I'm so glad I can see some of your plants and scenery and the ATC's are cool too.

Have a wonderful time with the girls this next week. The cleaning will be so worth it! Lucky you!

Your yard looks gorgeous! I'm jealous! In fact your whole home looks cozy and that area with the swing. And your art is always so much fun. I love paisleys so you know I love those ATCs!!
