OOh! An invite to go Wishing this weekend!!!

We got an invite to go Wishing this weekend at our friends weekend house just North of Madison, WI this weekend in Whitewater.  They call it wishing, because there are no fish in their lake.  You cast and sit on the dock eating a hot dog or burger and wish you were catching some fish.  I am so excited.  It should be fun.  

A slice of summer.  
This card is for 2 challenges.  Watermelon as inspiration either literally or figuratively for Day 89 at 365 cards.
And at Charisma Cardz the challenge is Going Dotty.  Use dots, or circles on your card, I did both.
I used the Quickutz nesting circles and the letters are stickers from Deja Views.
This card is a 2fer too!
The sketch came from Dutch Dare.
And the Buttons Galore theme came from Paper Play.
The buttons were a rummage sale find at an old farm house.  A mason jar for less than a buck.  The words are Color Bok and the cute girl is from Lisa's Altered Art.
Another Grandpa picture, this time with Grandma Maki as well.  They were both Finlanders.  What a cute pair they were too!  
Friendship is yet another 2fer.  I am liking this 2fer day today.  
I was going to start my cards for my Quickutz card club, and the meeting for this month got postponed.  One of our girls has vertigo.  I hope she is better soon.
This card is a sketch from Twisted Thursdays, the twist is Monochromatic.
The bling-bling is thanks to Cute Card Thursday.  
This card is for Limelight and a sketch they had today.  The catch was that you had to use patterned paper for this.  I love patterned paper.  I find it more of a challenge to use plain paper.   The hearts in the corner are a punch from EK success.  

I am making Fried Chicken tonight.  I know it is not a good diet food, but it is a rare treat.    Back on track after supper.  I am also making corn with mayonnaise and adobo spice and queso fresco cheese.  Yum.  It is a sassy night indeed.
