More Bright Flowers

I said I would post the second card I made using PaperTreyInk's Floral Frenzy and here it is. It is very much the same but very different. They are such quick cards to whip up. When I took the picture this card looked ok but now I see that it looks like the top got cut off. Well, imagine if you can, that there is equal sides all the way around. Some day I may learn to take better pictures but until that happens I count on you all to have great imaginations!

If you are in the USA we have a three day weekend going. Boy are we all ready or what? In Nebraska Memorial Day weekend is usually wet and sometimes pretty chilly. This year they are calling for a small chance of rain on Sunday but the rest of the weekend should be nice. I am not complaining! I hope you are all enjoying the weekend as well. Anyone doing anything special?

I have one more day to work before summer vacation starts. And that is Tuesday. I will only be there a short time and then gone. Eight glorious weeks to do what I want when I want. It is amazing how fast those eight weeks go though. Once I walk out of that door it is about time to turn around and walk back in.

I am reading a new Debbie Macomber book called Hannah's List and it is starting out very good. I hope to read a lot this summer. Sitting on the deck with a big glass of ice water and a good book. Ahhhh the life :)

Until next time, Happy trails to you....

Sad day and bright flowers

Today was a very tough day for us. Remember a short while ago when I said my sister in law was ill? Well, it turned out to be lung cancer and she died on Saturday night. She was a very very special lady and loved by everyone she met. Her funeral was today. We all know that she is pain free and in a much better place. I just wish we could have one more get together and laugh together.

On a happier note, I used a PTI set named Floral Frenzy and made 2 different but alike cards. I like the happy colors they are. One I sent to a friend for her retirement and that is the one i am posting today. Next time I will post the other one.

I would love to know what you think of it.

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

Birthday Donkey

I wondered if I would ever find the time to blog again! It has been extremely busy every day. But today was the kids last day of school and I only have to work another 6 days and I will be free for 8 wonderful weeks! So the end is in sight. Because of that crazy-ness I am showing you a card that I made a while back for a friend. It was colored with my Copic markers and I just added strips of paper from my scrap pile. A little bling was added and voila, a finished card. Thanks so much for looking and until next time,

Happy trails to you, ......

Mother's Day and Teenagers

Happy Mothers Day to all! I hope you had a wonderful day. We had a very nice day in spite of the very chilly weather and clouds for most of the day. My oldest daughter celebrated with us last night while my youngest daughter and her family will come next weekend. We decided to postpone it until the weather was nicer. The weather is goofy all over from what we are hearing. What's up with that?

My card today is for a friend who needed a card for a teenage niece. I thought of this old Stampin Up! set right away. I colored it with my Copic markers and used Bazzill papers excet for the card base which is PTI white. On the inside I stamped "Whatever!" from that same set. Boy it sounds typical to me.

Until next time... happy trails to you
