Starburst or Quilt?

I just found this picture of a card I made last summer and never posted.  It was really fun to do and fun to choose the colors!  I decided that it was easiest to use a paper pack as all of those colors and patterns coordinate.  Anyway, here is the finished product and I hope you like it!

Our snow was not near what they predicted.  Oh we got heavy heavy wet snow but only about 4 inches and the wind was not bad either.  In fact the day of the storm, the snow stopped by noon and I went out to use the snow blower.  It was actually very nice outside!  But the next day the winds came up and it was not near as nice.  The snow was heavy enough that it didn't blow too much.  Not far from us was much much worse.  In fact 50 miles from here the interstate was closed for 2 days for a distance of about 230 miles!  That never happens here.  We just got very lucky.

That's all for me today.  Until next time, happy trails to you...

Snowman Round 2

So last time I updated my blog, The eastern half of the US was expecting a huge snowstorm.  Now it is our turn.  We are supposed to have a blizzard on Monday night and Tuesday with 8 or more inches of snow.  So I thought I should out another snowman on my blog!  I have a tree stencil and used that for the background.  Then I colored my snowman and the fire and cut him out.  Boy I sure hope the weatherman is wrong!  The last few days have been wonderful!  Highs in the upper 40's.  Lucy and I have walked every day.  We will miss that again for awhile or that is sure what it is sounding like.  I am hoping that since they have hyped it up so much that it will miss us! 

Until next time... happy trails to you

I have several friends in the east who are in the path of the snowstorm this weekend.  They say it is going to be a big big storm.  I pray everyone stays safe.  And I have a friend who is in Georgia and she said their temperatures will be in the low 70's!  That sounds like a dream!!   I am so ready for spring!  But it is fun to color up these cute snowmen and winter characters.

Until next time, happy trails to you...

I have put my trust in You.

I made this card for a lady in a rest home.  I hope she will like it.  I used the Studio die set from Memory Box along with a new stamp set from Verve and paper from Echo Park and of course sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

I have to thank an online friend, Michelle Peterman for telling me about the Netflix documentary, Making of a Murderer.  She said it was so good and everyone should watch it.  Well, I immediately looked for it and as I talked to others it seems like many people have been talking about it.  (I guess I don't get out much!)  So I started watching it.  I too am hooked and can't stop watching it.  It is very interesting and really holds your attention.  I am very anxious to see how it is going to end.  Anyone else out there watching?  I would love to hear what you think.

After a lot of nice weather before Christmas, it turned colder on Christmas Eve and snowed 8 inches during the day.  Now we have had another snow of only about 3 - 4 inches and some snow showers but really cold. Now this weekend they say we will have wind chills below zero.  Sounds like other than Church on Sunday I am staying inside and not leaving my house.  Brrr.  I hoped to walk this morning before the cold came but it is already windy.  Hurry Spring!!!! 

Until next time, Happy trails to you!

He Restores My Soul

I recently got this Bible verse and had a Church from Stampscapes so decided to combine them.  I thought I would add some snowflakes using embossing paste and a stencil.  Not sure I would add them again or at least not as many.  I did very little coloring on this.

Also wanted to pop in to say Happy New Year to all!  Be safe but have fun!!

Until next time, happy trails to you!

Merry Christmas

I wanted to jump on today and wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!  A lot of my cards this year were religious based but this one was just a fun one.  I love these little stockings from Memory Box.  Let us always remember the true reason for this celebration even if we do put some fun into it as well.  Thank you all for being faithful readers of  my little blog and yes, I have a lot to be grateful for.

Trees Trees and More Trees

Here are some more cards I made.  All tree cards.  All were colored with sponges and distress inks.  The dies for the top two are from Memory Box and so is the snowflake border on the first card. I hope you are inspired to make some tree cards.  I would love to see them so let me know if you make some!

Until next time, happy trails to you!!
