Gingerbread People

Ok, once again time has gotten away from me. Tonight I am posting a card I made for a special friend and her husband for their anniversary. I know it is supposed to be a Christmas card but hey, why not? The stamp set is from Paper Trey Ink and is called Holiday Button Bits. The buttons are also from Paper Trey Ink. I hope you like it. It was fun to make! I am not a big out of the box thinker so this was a stretch for me!

How do you like my new blog look? My friend Eulanda surprised me with it and I LOVE it. Thanks Eulanda!

Until next time .... Happy Trails to you

Girls Best Friend

I received some Magnolia images from two friends, Debra and Andrea. Thanks Ladies! I finally had a chance to play with a couple of them last night. I colored the arm chair with a light Copic color. Then colored the girl and popped her up just a teeny bit off of the chair. Fido was colored with Copics and I used thicker pop dots so he is further away from the chair. Next I found my window stamp and stamped and colored it. Using a craft knife I cut out the glass. I cut another piece of white cardstock and stamped some trees from the SU! set Lovely as a Tree on it. Next I took a colored piece of acetate and stamped snowflakes on it. I put all three layers together and "hung" the window. My wallpaper is paper from my stash. I was happy with the way this card came out and it was a lot of fun to make. Thanks for visiting today.

Hopefully I will be back before Thanksgiving but if I don't make it, I want to wish everyone a very happy Thanksgiving. Are you having turkey or something else? What one special thing do you make year after year. The one thing that everyone would miss if you didn't make it.

Until next time ....Happy Trails

Feeling the Fall Season

Today as the leaves rain down I have a couple of cards to show you. The first one is made from a Stampin Up! set and I used various inks that I have to stamp the leaves. Then I cut out inchies and put across the bottom. The base paper is from Bazzil and the ribbon is from Stampin Up!.

The second card is one I made for a male co-worker for his birthday. He was 24 years old yesterday. My golly, I have clothes older than he is. Anyway the leaves are from a Cuttlebug folder and sent to me by my friend Vicki. Thanks again Vicki. The sentiment is a stamp from Paper Inspirations. I used the new In Colors from Stampin Up! for the base of this card.

That's it for today. Until next time... Happy trails to you!
