Happy May Day!!
My good friends over in the dandy patch are having a challenge for a May Day card...and this is what I came up with. My friend, Lois, said she had fond memories of May Day and wearing pretty bows in her hair, going door to door with May Baskets and leaving them for neighbors and such.
This is my interpretation of May Day, I think of bright tulips, sunshiney skies, and the bow is for Lois and her hair bows!!
Do you have any May Day memories? If so, share them here, I'd love to read your comments!!

I am not home right now...in fact I am on the other side of our beautiful state of Colorado staying at my parent's house. I am watching the house and making visits to the nursing home to visit my Mom and Dad. Dad is recovering well from knee surgery, and Mom is very happy to have him with her and rallying around him while he is in rehab.
So while here, I have noticed Spring has Sprung...in fact we are in quick warming trend of the low 80's following a rain deluge last week. And peering out the windows I am noticing another thing, lots of dirt and muck...so, bringing out my trusty window cleaning recipe and wanted to share it with you. This is guaranteed to clean your windows and your sinuses...try it and you'll see. Let me know what ya think once you're done cleaning...it is Spring and it is almost the weekend!!
To One Gallon of Water Add:
1/2 Cup Ammonia
1 pint rubbing alcohol *found in the pharmacy department
1 tiny squirt of Dawn dishwashing liquid
Mix in the bucket, and use your scrubber and squeegee to get those windows sparklin'. Use a microfiber cloth to wipe your squeegee between each swipe...
Tip: Clean your windows on a cloudy day, but not a rainy day. :)

Hi! This is my first post and I am so excited to share a special place with you! This picture was taken a month ago in one of my favorite mountain retreats, Steamboat Springs. This shot is overlooking the Yampa River with the ski mountain in the background.
You want to know what I am most excited about? I have a few stamping friends that I am very fond of who will be joining me in less than a month! If you're one of them, won't you leave a comment so I don't give the surprise away? So, I wanted to give these friends a preview of what is to come...we have lots of blue sky in Colorado as you can tell by the picture. And hopefully the snow will be melted, but even if it's not, we'll have fun romping! In the near future I hope to be able to show some pictures of all of us together, oh and maybe a card or two. Thanks for stopping by today!
