Bunches of Kites - Thank You

Hello everyone!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend....if you live in Texas like I do, I hope you were able to stay dry!!! Can you believe all the rain...we aren't finished with the bad weather yet...we are supposed to get a little more next week...oh boy!! We went to my granddaughter Mackenzie's Encore concert Saturday was a wonderful show!! Mackenzie and her group are super talented singers and such a joy to watch. I have posted a few pictures at the bottom of this post. Anyway....on to a little stamping news!!

My sweet and very talented daughter, Holly, was the hostess for Saturday's HYCCT1524 Challenge on Splitcoast. The Hope You Can Cling To challenges were developed for stampers to come together and create hundreds of works of art to share with the patients and their friends and family at MD Anderson. 

Holly's challenge was to create a thank you card with bunches of something on the front....I used kites.

My little kites made with Taylored Expressions  Little Bits-Kites dies were adhered to a watercolored round layer that was cut with the Stitched Circle Stacklet and the hand cut tags were added along the side. The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions From Me To You stamp set.... the Baker's Twine is the finishing touch.

Mackenzie is singing her solo...

The whole group...

This is her small group...

Daddy David, Cody, and Gabe.

Mackenzie is a little miffed that her little 12 year old brother is now taller than her...I'm afraid she is short like me....small but mighty!!!

Thanks for stopping by...have a wonderful week!!!
