Hi there!  Hope all the mom's out in blog land had a Happy Mother's Day!  I had the pleasure of a nice family dinner at our daughter's on Saturday after Stamp Camp since our son was in town then.  He BBQ'd and she fixed the sides and dessert.  It was yummy!
Yesterday a good portion of the day was spent on the phone catching up with friends.  Then my daughter in Miami and I had a marathon phone call for three hours!  We both have had really busy schedules so it was good to finally get caught up... for now.

Had a great group of gals at Stamp Camp on Saturday - and three new attendees!  (Hi ladies!)  Guess I'd better quit blabbing and get on with one of the projects!  The main focus of this month's Camp centered around Retiring Stamps and/or Accessories.
The card below showcases two retiring stamp sets - Autumn Days and Trendy Trees (sentiment).  Watercolor Wonder Crayons were used to make the background.  Most of the ladies in the group had not used watercolor crayons before so I was excited to introduce them to this new medium!

Stamps: Autumn Days * (115452), Trendy Trees – sentiment * (113258)

That's all for now.  Need to do a couple of things before heading out to visit a friend recuperating from surgery.  Have a great day and thanks for coming by!
