Dotty Birthday

Another birthday card for you, but I must give credit to Pamela O'Connor for this one.  Operation Write Home is having a challenge to use dots.  Here's my entry:

I was having trouble with my sewing machine, so there are little bits of thread poking out in various places.  Got it fixed, though.  Whew.

The paper, ink, ribbon and stamps are all CTMH, although only the flower is in the current catalog.

This one is headed to California for my beautiful niece who is turning 21 on Saturday.  Boy, does that make me feel old.

I also thought I would show you a few more pictures from my recent trip to Texas.  I went to the Dr. Pepper Museum and the Texas Ranger Museum.  While both were fun, I must admit there was something special about the on tap Dr. Pepper from their soda fountain.  It really was extra yummy.  Add to that my first taste of a moon pie, and...well...yeah.  Pretty much YUM all the way around.
The wind was whipping that flag (which is huge) so perfectly for pictures, I took three. 
This was the best of the bunch
The Dr. Pepper Museum in Waco, TX
Me with Kayla, Josh and Kimberley Woodhouse (the world's greatest Dr. Pepper fan). 
You can see the server in the background making "fresh" soda.
Mmmm...Moon Pie! 
And, yes, my hair is being held back with a bandanna.  Remember the wind...whipping that flag?

And, just so you know, I did pick up two research books at the Texas Ranger museum, so it was ALL fun and games.  Just most of it.

Until next time,


  1. wonderful card!

    thanks for sharing all the pics... it's been a while since I've been in that area of Texas.. besides the wind, it looks like you had beautiful weather and a lot of fun.
