Happy Birthday, Girlfriend!

It's time again for the
challenge. 

This week's challenge is:
One Layer Card
(plus a sentiment)

Happy Birthday, Girlfriend!


I had the wonderful opportunity to use BFF Duo Cake from Just Some Lines... printed directly with a Happy Birthday sentiment directly onto card stock.  Colored with copics and added some metallic gel pen accent and a bit of bling...
Fun and a little sassy... perfect!

Life Goes On...
We've had some beautiful weather here in the Okanagan... it's been in the 30ºC (which is 100ºF) range for a better part of two weeks.  I'm loving the warmth and enjoying a little bit of humidity which is not common for us as we are such a dry area... 
Here are a few pictures of the area that Boyd and I live...


Downtown Kelowna...

Vineyards...

City Park & Knox Mountain Park in the background...

It was 10 years ago that we had a devastating forest fire which enveloped the southern section of our city.  250 homes were lost and no loss of life, which was incredible.  The whole mountain side was ablaze at times and it was surreal.  We were getting large cold embers landing on our deck which was 2 - 3 km away from the fires.  The last picture here above, Boyd & I live on the other side of the top ridge in a area of the city that is surrounded by park and trees... it is nature and the city at our back door... yesterday we went for a 3 hour (5km) hike/walk... it was hot & dry (we had water to drink, whew) and we were quite spent by the time we got home.  It was a fabulous trek! 

We're, well lets say I am... looking forward to having some dog time at our friends & breeders Carol & Rob and the Aladdin Cocker Spaniels... I'm thinking that some dog hugs and kisses might be in order.  No news on the puppy side yet which is okay too.  It's is good thing and it gives us time to honor Ali.

Oh and the hummingbird update?  No return of Babe or Momsy... nature has a way of taking care of itself, I guess.  I don't think we'll get a second nesting but hopefully a hummingbird will use the nest next season, providing it stays intact.  We'll get our photo collection edited down and hope to post soon...

Thought for the day...
"You know something bad is about to happen when someone says...
 'Hold my beer and watch this...'  "
