The weekend is here again, and I know a lot of you are ready for it!  I hope it's not too hot where you are and that you have a good one!

Today's card is for my dear friend Dan.  His health is getting worse and I have been sending more cards to help cheer him up.  I think I mentioned before that he LOVES flamingos!  His family room is full of lots of different kinds that he has collected over the years.  He really enjoys when I do a card for him with them on it, so today I did just that!  The word "flamingos" is a laser cut that I bought on e-bay.  The stamp is colored with my Copic's, then I added the computer generated sentiment and a couple buttons.  All the paper is from my scrap bin!  Love to get in there and scrounge, I never know what I will find!

Have a great weekend with your family and friends.  Be thankful for your health and God's many blessing.
