It was a BEAUTIFUL day!!

I can't believe I have energy to blog. Today was a gorgeous day, 85degrees and sunny and breezy. We took a road trip to Saugatuck, Michigan. It is a 2 hour ride from here but it was
worth it. Saugatuck is a quaint little town on an inlet of Lake Michigan. There are hundreds of cute little shops and eateries and ice cream parlors. We had lunch at a restaurant right on the water and we sat outside watching all the yachts go by. We did do some shopping but all I bought was a single dip cone, but that is good enough , isn't it?!!
I made this card last night. It is extremely bright so that is why I took the picture outside (with my sunglasses on). The stamp set is from MFT and the green paper is gable green from SU.
The rest is from my scrap drawer, which I am not real good about keeping track of what paper is what. The flower is a Prima (of couse, what other kind is there).
Well tomorrow , believe it or not we are going apple picking with several other families. We go every year on Labor Day weekend. The Gala apples are ready to be picked and there is no one else there. We have a blast! I think the best part is the apple donuts. They are awesome!
Anyway, have a great rest of the weekend and thanks for visiting!!
