These are the Artist Trading Cards that we made in the class I taught a week ago.

You can't tell that I love birds and trees, can you?! I have so many tree stamps that I decided to do a series of tree ATC's with different tree quotes that I have collected. I also love old movie stars, so I'm going to do a series of those, too. And, yes, that is a RUBBER STAMP of Elvis! The third photo shows the inside of the second ATC which opens up. These were very fun to do and we had a big class making them.

I love the climbing rose bush in my backyard! The ROSE has always been my favorite flower. And even though our rose bush is terribly overgrown, I love it. The only bad thing is the roses don't last very long and then we just have the green leaves for the rest of the summer. I decided I had better take pictures before they are completely dead and gone!

I love summer! I love to be able to sit out on my back deck at night and listen to the birds, enjoy the fresh air, and see my roses!
A couple of days ago, Steven found a dragonfly on our front sidewalk not moving. He picked it up with a stick, which it managed to cling to. It was barely alive. We had to take some photos of it because the wings were so pretty. I took the first photo and Steven took the other one with his really good camera.
