Bluebird

Today starts a new challenge at Catch the Bug and it's a photo inspiration. For my card, I used a pre-colored image Bird Trio Summer and the sentiment is from TLC, Create.  I like that the image is so cheerful and has so many great colors ad I used a paper to coordinate.  The photo has a rainbow kite which inspired me to the rainbow of colors and then I used floral buttons around the sentiment.
This has been a rough week.  We had audits at work.  My office mate and her boyfriend broke up so she was having an emotional breakdown daily. Then Friday morning my Uncle passed away after being diagnosed with metastatic cancer just a month ago.  So I few people that I am trying to cheer up. Then I had a water leak in my basement from a pipe last week and my air conditioning wasn't working this week when it's been the hottest all summer so my home repairs are just adding up this month.  Just hope July will be a better month.

Love your card with all rainbow elements, Lisa.
You have had a tough week. Sorry about the loss of your uncle and about your troubles with the water leak and the airco.
Here we have a heatwave, so we decided to buy airco, too. But there's a rush on it, so we have to wait for installing till next week.
Have a great week and a better month!

I'm so sorry for the loss of your uncle and all the troubles. It is a bad time for the air conditioning to go out. It's been so hot here after weeks of constant rain. Your card is absolutely adorable!! I love the birds!! The coloring is fabulous!! Hoping July goes much, much better for you. Big hugs :)

Considering you have had bad news in a lot of forms, this card is bright and happy. I'm sorry for the loss of your Uncle and hope the water didn't leave too much damage. As for air conditioning? ah! I remember it well when we lived abroad, one or other would have problems and always when it was at it hottest!
Take care and it seems you are the support to many, remember yourself too.
