Happy Birthday Kris!

I have a friend who had a birthday a few days ago (March 20) and I sent her this card.  She got it on time, but I forgot to post it here on time.  Anyway it was fun to color on Kraft cardstock.  This stamp is an oldie and probably retired by now.  Aren't those little cupcakes floating in her drink adorable?  I assume the drink is pink raspberry Crystal Light.  Added some sequins and a sentiment and done! 

Until next time, happy trails to you...

I am taking the new Online Card Class and have finally had a chance to make a card.  The class today was using your small dies in a new way.  I had these teeny tiny little stars and the glasses die so paired them together with some patterned paper from an old paper pack and came up with this card.  I think it is a fun one and these dies had never been used before.  I hope I can get into the craft room and make some other things from the class soon. 

Until next time, Happy trails to you!!!

Two Little Fishies

In one of my stamping groups, we had to do an under the sea theme card.  I made this one from an old set from Gina K Designs.  I think these fish are adorable and they just make me laugh!  I put some google eyes on the blue one and they make me laugh more.  Silly fish! 

Our weather has been amazing for the last week.  Warm temperatures and sunny skies.  How I hope it stays this way.  But I well know we could be in for yet one more big snow! 

Until next time... happy trails to you

Praying For You

I have two friends with cancer and I send a card to each of them weekly.  One is a lady from my church, and the other is from VA. and I have never met her but I am a Chemo Angel and we send cards weekly to people assigned to us.  I am so blessed to have received the lady that I got as I am really sure she is going to be ok in the long run but it  is not fun to go through this stuff.  And her daughter has reached out to me and I feel I have gotten to know her.  The lady at church is such a sweet lady and always thinking of others.  Why does it always get the good ones?  Anyway this is the card I made for the lady from my church this week.  It is a new die from Simon Says Stamp and the butterflies I have had for a long time from Technique Tuesday.    Of course they  are colored with my Copics onto Neenah white cardstock.

Thanks for checking in with me.  I really appreciate all who do.  So until next time, Happy trails to you...

Happy Birthday!!

When I saw these balloon dies from Paper Smooches I had to have them.  Aren't they fun???  I colored them with Copics and then colored the happy word with the same colors.  A fun card for anyone. 

It has been just lovely here.  Our highs right now are what our lows should be.  Oh yes, still very cold.  In fact they are talking about a possible ice/sleet/snow for Tuesday and I had fun plans for that day!  In order to have fun, I need to get Lucy to the vet to have her teeth cleaned and then I was going to spend part of the day with Stephanye. I sure hope the weatherman is wrong!

Until next time, happy trails to you...

I am ready for Spring!

Ok this was such an easy card I am almost embarrassed to put it here but I liked it!  So, I used a piece of scrap for the aqua cardstock.  Then I die cut Memory Box's Dot Spot and popped it up with foam tape and added a flower.  The sentiment is from Avery Elle.  Easy peasy. 

So we finally had a nice blue sky day yesterday with temperatures in the low 40's.  Really nice.  My friend, Stephanye and I went for a walk and I even got really warm!  Now today the skies are gray and they are saying rain changing to snow.  Only an inch here but this weekend, we are supposed to have more snow.  I know, we are so lucky we are not in Boston or anywhere that has gotten hit so hard this winter but still I want to open the door and feel 65 or 70 degree temperatures. 

Until next time, Happy trails to you!

Brrrr it is Cold Outside

I am sure hoping this is my last frigid card for the year!  I love making them but don't like going outside!  I used a stencil and embossing paste for the snow falling.  I colored the snowman with my Copic markers, used dies for the snowdrifts and then die cut the words twice and off set them just a tad so it looks like the red is just behind the white color.  I really had fun making this one for a friend.  It was for a red and white swap card! 

On a side note, I am having a bathroom remodeled and it has been a month since they started.  I am seeing the end coming now.  The tile and floor are in and it looks like a bathroom!  Can't wait to see the finished room.  I think they will immediately start on the second bathroom then.  By the time they are done, I may be ready for the funny farm!  I am anxious to have a friend come and stay with me and can't until I have a bathroom and bedroom for her.  The bedroom is holding all of the stuff from the bathroom.  My daughter saw the bedroom and said she was calling for help!  Looks like I am a hoarder!  Hard to cram 2 rooms into one.  Especially when I have a big linen closet to unload!  Soon very soon I will have one done.

Until next time, happy trails to you...
