Flats, Rotunda, Cats

Next on our trip around town is The Flats.  The Flats is a mixed-use industrial, entertainment, and increasingly residential area of Cleveland, Ohio, USA. The name reflects its low-lying topography on the banks of the Cuyahoga River.

You can find great dining from casual to high end. You can come by car or boat. You can come to eat or stay and eat, drink and dance.

The flats also includes housing.

With housing comes shopping.  Heinens has opened a grocery store at E 9th and Euclid. Check out the cool building they used!
This is a card that an online friend posted.  Isn't this a hoot?  You get to make up what would be inside.  What do you think?
How about, Some days are like this.
 This was a cute picture I saw on FB. It was so sweet I had to share it here.
 Isn't it wonderful to know you are not alone? God loves you no matter what!
 Here are some of the cards I've made recently.  This card was a color challenge using curry, pumpkin and watermelon.  As soon as I saw the colors I knew I had to use this stamp.
 The steaming coffee cups card was my inspiration for my mugs card.  Sundays at SCS there is a stamper chosen that you make a card similar to one from their gallery.  I didn't have cute mugs so I found a mug template online and cut mugs from designer paper, colored the coffee dark and added hearts with white liquid applique then heated it. Whe it's heated it bubbles up like foam.
 This is a card for two challenges. The first challenge was to make a shirt collar for you card.  The second challenge was to use fruit on your card.  The shirt collar isn't as obvious because I used the same color behind the collar.  I needed the dark purple for the berries to show up better.

  Verse of the Day: To be close to God is to be filled with Him.  We should all yearn for that very thing.   To yearn to have Jesus and need nothing else.

Blessing of the Day: I had time to relax and do what I wanted.  We were supposed to have Bible Study tonight but Chuck had to work late.  So Tim and I sat with a hot cup of coffee and some kolatchkies.

Here's Phil Wickham with a new song to me.  See what you think.

Tim goes in for a minor procedure Friday. I'd appreciate prayers for him and the staff who will be with him.  Thank you.

Tim will be in my prayers, as well as you and all your lovely family.

That bird reminds me of Trump! Must be the hair.

kolatchkies are so delicious! Very good second option.

Thank you for the thoughtful quotes.

here we go, right into summer in the Cleveland tradition!
80s through the weekend, high 70s the rest of next week.....if you can believe the forecast!

Happy Memorial Day! Thank you military men and women and vets!
