Mr. C, as he liked to be called, passed away last year.

Just want to check up on my friend and see how she is managing,

since her hubby’s passing. He was a good Friend!

I had to cancel my meet up with my friend Brenda.

Her Grandson, wife and 2 kids were coming from Japan for

a visit, the night before I was to see her.

I backed out of meeting till the next trip up there.

I didn’t want to take any time away from her visit with

her grandson and family…this is the first time

Brenda will see both Great Grands!

It is their time…I will visit next year!

 

Until the next Post…Blessings to you ALL!

I also collected a few things from Charlie,

to bring to Mr. Hubster!

Here is Today’s Card!

I dry-embossed this DSP, with a 3D embossing folder!

Which do you like the best?

I’m leaning to the one on the right!

 

ON ANOTHER NOTE:

Maine air is CRISP! Ahh! Refreshing!

I will be leaving Charlie’s with my Grand,

to drive back down to RI.

I may stop in Kittery, Maine on the way back.

I don’t think my Grand has been to the Kittery Trading Post!

It’s like a Giant Bass Pro Shop and Cabela’s rolled into one store!

So much to see in the store!

I used to buy myself a sweater every time I visited!

There are also many Brand Name Outlets up there too!

We shall just take our time, it is only a 4 hour drive

back to RI from Maine!

 

Until the next Post…Blessings to you ALL!

Some of the pages are printed with a foil,

in this case, it is called ‘brass’ foil.

 

Here is Card #1!

My goal was to mimic the ‘brass’ in the DSP.

This particular page doesn’t have the ‘brass’ design on it!

 

Here is the inside of the Card!

100_7631

The boat was stamped and die-cut, like the boat on the card front,

I also stamped the envelope!

ON ANOTHER NOTE:

As you read this, I will be driving up to Maine!

My eldest Grand will be riding with me!

We will stay the night and return to RI tomorrow!

It will be good to visit with Charlie!

He said a lot is closed up there,

No Restaurants are open for business.

We will be dining in with him!

I’m looking forward to sitting on his deck tonight

talking and sipping some wine!

Oh! I brought the OFF, black flies up there are tough!

LOL! they may not be in season, but I will be prepared!

Until the next Post…Blessings to you ALL!
