POSIES

These flowers are from Altenew and the bow is from a digital stamp set I have.  The wood grain is also from Altenew.  I had a lot of fun coloring them.  Our weather was nice and the tulips and other spring flowers were blooming.  So now two weeks later, we have a freeze warning tonight and today was only in the 40's and real windy.  So cold!  So much for enjoying the lilacs!  I think they said it would be rainy and cold and windy until next Tuesday. 

I just finished a great book called One Perfect Lie by Lisa Scottoline.  I thought it started out slow but when it picked up I couldn't put it down!  Great read. 

Friday is my last day at Physical Therapy for my knee.  So from the 9th of January to the end of April!  A long haul!  They will give me exercises to continue at home. 

Well, I am off to get under my blanket and warm up!  Until next time, Happy Trails to You

Happy Easter part 2

I found this Easter card that I also made this year. I love the springy flowers and the fact that it was a digital stamp so I could resize it anyway I wanted.  Just wanted to pop on here and wish everyone a beautiful Easter

Happy Easter



Happy Easter!  Gosh spring is really springing here in Nebraska.  Love this time of the year.  I made several Easter cards this year but only remembered to photograph three of them.
The ones I made for church are really pretty and of course I forgot to take a picture!  I wish for you all sunny skies and lots of eggs.  But most of all the joy we get knowing Christ rose oh the third day.  What a joyous day it is!

Until next time, happy trails to you

Happy Birthday, Georgia

My friend, Georgia has a birthday today. This is the card and envelope I made for her.  I just got this new stamp set from Penny Black and have used it a LOT in the last couple of weeks since it arrived.  I really like it!  In honor of her birthday, the sun finally is shining!  Good heavens we had three weeks of clouds, dark skies and even some rain (which we needed) but now it is so bright and sunny out as of yesterday!  Everyone is in a better mood!!  Happy spring!!

Until next time, happy trails to you...

SMILE MORE

I bought another Altenew stamp set.  This one is called Smile More.  I just love the flowers in this set.  I blended some inks on the bottom - it is my Laura Fadora coming out!  LOL  I really am liking the reds, oranges and yellows even though it does look a little fallish.  You see these colors in the summer too. 

I have been busy between rain drops. It has been cloudy for 2 weeks and the temperatures have been in the 40's and 50's.  I think I want February back.  I was sitting on the deck then! LOL  What strange weather.  Tomorrow is April so hopefully the weather will warm up a bit pretty soon.  And I would love to see the sun for a whole day or two!    But the grass is greening up and the trees all have buds or tiny leaves on them. 

Until next time ...  happy trails to you...

ALTENEW

I admit it, I am an Altenew addict!  I can't stop using their layered stamps and the Altenew inks.  They are perfect and take all the guess work out of figuring out what colors to layer with. 

We have had some really unusual weather this week and it is only Tuesday!  Yesterday it was 80 degrees! But around 4:00 pm storms rolled in and it poured rain and we had pea sized hail.  I understand that there were several tornadoes in neighboring states and much damage.  It was much cooler after the storms left us.  And now they are talking snow showers on Saturday.  And temperatures in the 40's next week.  Just wonder what the summer will have in store for us this year.  I am finally getting my garage resided after last May's hail storm. 

Nothing else is new here  I am busy working on some Easter cards.  Be back soon!

Happy trails to you...

Altenew Butterflies

For the last couple of weeks we have had spring like weather.  I have been sitting on the deck reading my book and enjoying 75 degree weather in February.  I also made this card using Altenew's butterfly stamps and inks.  Well, all that has changed.  We had very chilly temperatures yesterday and rain started around 5:00 last night.  It later turned to sleet and this morning we have about 1 - 2 inches of snow on the ground with a heavy band of snow heading right for us later this morning.  It is very very windy as well so I guess I am done with the deck sitting for awhile. And just when I was getting used to it! 
I sure hope your weather is better than ours is! 

Until next time, happy trails to you...
