A flower for you!!

Good Evening Everyone!!! I hope you guys are enjoying your Thursday!! WOW it was a hot day here in Ohio!! It was a good day to swim, the kids played in the pool most of the day, I had to go grocery shopping, and mopping my floors has now become an everyday thing. We have 3 cats inside and 2 dogs... OH MY the hair, it makes me CRAZY and we have light wood floors so sweeping and mopping has become constant. I rather be stamping!! LOL... Well enough about my very exciting day..HA!! I decided to make a card tonight. I have seen a ton of cute ideas for this Chef from SU lately. So I wanted to play with him and use some more of this June Bug Basic Grey paper since I have already cut it...OH NO!! :) I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by and visiting!! In the inside it says... I picked this flower for you!!!

What a cute card! I love the plaid paper you used to paper piece this little guy. This image has been on my wish list for a long time. I envy your hot weather. Were freezing here in Northern Wisconsin. I just finished closing all the windows cause it was getting too cold in the house. I'm suppose to have a swimming party at my house tomorrow, but I doubt anyone will want to swim in this weather. And your everyday mopping story made me thankful that I put in dark cherry wooden floors in my house. I can't even remember the last time I mopped them. LOL!
