Happy Birthday Mom

I just received my first package with some Lili of the Valley stamps. Oh they are so cute! I had to get one of them inky immediately and had a ball coloring her. I colored her with my Copics and then added the silver glitter pen on the bow of the present. I put glitter from the Art Institute on her skirt and her hair thingys. The flowers are from Prima and the lace is some that I had gotten at a garage sale this last summer. The background paper is forever old and I have no idea where I got it. I completed her with the Wishing You also from Lili of the Valley. Today would have been my Mom's 94th birthday but we lost her a year ago in September. So this card will be dedicated to my mom. Just the kind of card she would have liked. She loved pink - the more the better!

Until next time....

Happy trails to you.............

Can you believe it is the week of Thanksgiving already? Wasn't it summer just yesterday? I have begun my Christmas shopping but barely scratched the surface. If my family would just give me a list it would be so much easier. Or if everyone was a stamper that would even be better! Anyway, I intended to make several Thanksgiving cards but time got away from me and I only made 3 or 4. They were all made with stickers which made it especially easy. The first card is a double gatefold card that I first saw on GinaK's Stamp TV. I had a lot of fun making them. I have never been good at making cards with stickers. My friend Georgia is the queen of sticker cards. I keep buying them but until now have never made one that I really was happy with.

I wish everyone a very Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving.

Until next time... Happy Trails to you

For The Boys

A friend of mine, Vicki, obtained a list of servicemen and women to send Christmas cards to. I jumped at the opportunity and worked on my cards this weekend. I will show you one today that I made. I am usually sticker challenged but I was happy with the way they came out. I cut a border around the sticker and then used Stickles to make the berries glitter. I used a Cuttlebug folder on the front of the card. The cardstock is Rustic Cream by PaperTreyInk. I hope you enjoy my card and come back next time for another one.

Until next time, Happy trails to you...

Oh my goodness the time has really flown by. I am just now realizing that I haven't posted in 2 weeks! Last weekend we were busy all weekend with Halloween stuff. First Lucy went to a costume party and the grandkids came over to trick or treat early so they could stay in their neighborhood Sunday night. And of course all of the little ghosts and goblins. It is so fun to see how they are all dressed.

Our school had the firemen come to eat with the kindergartners. They really think it is a big deal when the visit so we wanted to make a thank you card for them. I used a Whipper Snapper stamp of the fireman and colored him with my Copics. The paper and buttons are from PaperTreyInk and the ribbon is from Stampin Up. A pretty easy and quick card. I hope they liked it!

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