I followed the eclipse across the US on tv. It didn't get dark here, only very cloudy and overcast. What a fantastic event it was and brought so many people together from all over in a unified manner.
This card is for my granddaughter's birthday and I had a hard time with it. I made it twice and still am not pleased. It's the strings that really threw me. I'm posting it in the JUGS challenge this week. Be kind to one another.

  4. I love using balloons & yours look great to me, Brenda! Bet your granddaughter will love this! Sorry your weather didn't cooperate for the eclipse--totality was so amazing, but it wasn't that dark. Hopefully it will be better in 7 yrs when you guys get it! Fritz was totally oblivious, like Molly. Hugs, Greta

  8. Your strings are just fine, Brenda, but I know what you mean. I have the same problem and, as a result, have bought more string stamps than I need. I'll send you a couple! It's a fun and colorful card, which is just what a birthday card should be! Thank you so much for playing with Just Us Girls!! Hugs, Darnell xxoo
