My friend Peggy bought this tree die from Taylored Expressions (I think).  I had the paper and then found these stickers in my stash.  Lightbulb moment.  I really like the way it turned out.  Once in a while my vision comes out like I imagine!

My friend from MA was here all last week and I didn't get a chance to update this.  Been a long time!  Our weather has been perfect.  Here is a video of one of the fun things we did while she was here at the Henry Doorly Zoo.

Until next time, happy trails to you!

Get Well

I made one more card for NEBUS.  I just got these Gina K stamps in the mail so that is one and  the paper is new from Michaels (love the silver that runs through the grain of the wood.  Also I think but am  not positive that the get well die has never been used.  I have had it in my stash but not sure I have used it before.  I really like how fallish this card turned out.

Until next time, happy trails to you...

This is really really NBUS  I decided to take a class from Alyce of Kit and Clowder.  I want to learn the flicking and feathing techniques.  I purchased this digi from Power Poppy and used never before used Copic markers and went to town.  I have all of the colors of Copics but some have never been used.  Sad I know.  Anyway this little number took me four days to complete and I still need lots of practice but it was fun to "have a go" as Alyce would say.  I will enter this one in to the NBUS challenge

Until next time. happy trails to you.  I hope you come back and visit again soon

A big Halloween BOO!

I am joining the NEBUS challenge this go round and you must use something new.  So I chose this new to me paper pack - I bought it last year and never even opened it up until now.  I also used the new Spooky Trees from Taylored Expressions and some spooky eyes that again I bought who knows when but they were new in the package.  When I saw the eyes in my stash, I knew what I had to do with the trees.  It seems funny to make halloween cards when the temperature is 95 degrees outside.  But it is supposed to cool into the 60's and rain starting tomorrow.  However the rain must not have gotten the message because it rained already today! 

Until next time, Happy trails to you!  Thanks for visiting!!

Blended flowers

Did you wonder if I had fallen off the face of the earth?  I have been busy making cards for my church's college students and sending them out.  And I have started my Christmas Cards.  I am in the midst of Christmas around here.  But since it is officially still summer I wanted to showcase this card.  It was so easy to put together. All I did was to die cut the flower with gold card stock and I blended inks on white cardstock and spritzed it with water and I had a finished card!

Has anyone else started their Christmas cards?  When I worked, I always had them completed by the first of August before I went back to work.  I am getting lazy!  LOL

Until next time, happy trails to you...

My neighbors and friends are having a new baby very soon.  His name will be Paxton.  I just got this stamp of a giraffe from Impression Obsession and thought it would make a really cute baby card.  The sentiment is an oldie from Verve. 

Until next time, happy trails to you

Hello Gorgeous!

I thought it was time for a fun card.  I picked up this digi several months ago and had to color her up.  Don't ya love her hat?  I put her on an embossed brick wall by Cuttlebug.  Of course I used my Copics to color her up.

I have been missing as we took a trip to Myrtle Beach South Carolina.  We stayed in a wonderful condo right on the beach with a great view.  The sunrises were amazing!  I tried to be walking on the beach to see them but twice I woke up too late and saw it from our deck.  We stopped at Churchill Downs on the way and then went into Charleston one day while we were there.  On the way home we stopped in Asheville NC and rode a steam engine train through the Smokey Mountains and then went to Nashville TN and spent two fun days there and went to the Grand Ole Opry.  Last stop was the top of the Arch in St. Louis.  As many times as I have been by it, I had never been to the top so now I have.  Anyway that has kept me busy lately!

Until next time, happy trails to you
