Summer Days ~ Tilda

Our days here in the NW of Oregon are warm and muggy. I had to put fans on to get some air moving.

Our poor US is really suffering a severe drought. Food prices will be soring through the roof as they say. I could use a nice day at the beach. But with gas prices so very high, I have to watch
my budget. My sister had an idea of three of us going and splitting the gas and that will
make it possible.

So until then, I enjoyed making this card and thinking of the beach.

Happy Summer Days for Tilda.

  7. Makes me want to head out to the beach. I know what you mean about temperatures and gas prices. Yikes! It is suppose to be 106 degrees in my neck of the woods today.
