Belated Happy Birthday!

Hello all of Sheri's friends! I just snuck in to Sheri's blog to show you a card I sent to her last week. It's a belated birthday card.....FYI.....not forgotten!! I was just too committed with DT work and my own xmas cards that I fell behind. NO EXCUSE!! So I was hoping that maybe if I sent her a belated card and made it a super star card all would be forgiven. I hope you agree. Sheri seems to have thought it was pretty nice so I think I'm off the hook. Phew!! LOL!!

A note from Sheri that this card is even more amazing in person! Thanks so much, my friend!!

A Valentine For You

Ahhh January is almost over and that means we are closer to spring. I say this as I just came inside from shoveling another 9 inches of snow off of our driveway. The sun is shining and it looks pretty outside but in reality it is only 8 degrees out there. A good time to stay inside and craft! With that said, here is a valentine I made a couple of weeks ago. I used PTI paper and a Nestie to cut out the hearts. I used scraps from my scrap box for the hearts and a piece of ribbon for the bow. I put the cut out heart piece up on dimensionals. The sentiment is from PTI's Heart Prints. Easy peasy!

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

To The Moon and Back

I had so much fun making this card. My friend Georgia gave me some of these cut out cards and I couldn't wait to play with them. I dug out my Pure Innocence Naptime stamp and colored her on white PIT paper with my Copics. I paper pieced her jammies with a scrap of paper out of my scrapbox. Ok, so now I need a moon. I found a sun I have had for years. It is by All Night Media and called Mary Sunshine. I then cut a circle out with my Nestibililities and colored the face of the sunshine directly onto the stamp and stamped it on the circle. Ahha! Perfect! So I added that and then found the sentiment on another Pure Innocence set. Now I just need a little girl to give it to. My only granddaughter is 21 so would probably not appreciate it. All of the rest of them are boys and I know they wouldn't like it. Hmmmm maybe one of my daughters??? Or maybe I will just keep it and gaze at it. I think it is one of my favorites.

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

Snow Day

I am home for a second day for the snow we got Sunday night and Monday. We ended up with about 9 inches total and the winds kicked up today and blew it all around. It is much better so we will be back to work tomorrow. While home I thought I would participate in the Papertake Weekly Challenge. I made a Z-fold card. One I like but never think to make. I had fun making these Cats Pajama's kids playing in the snow. They are colored with my Copics and the base paper is Stampin Up. The designer paper was scraps from my stash. Lastly I put a generous amount of snowy sparkly Stickles to make the snow sparkle. I hope wherever you are you stay warm and have plenty of hot chocolate available!

Until next time - Happy Trails to you...

Pretty Woman

Good Sunday afternoon to you! It is certainly winter here today. Our temperatures are in the 20's and it is snowing. They say up to 8 inches by Tuesday morning with 10 inches possible locally. I know on Friday everywhere I went at work, people were talking about a snow day on Monday. Crossing my fingers but not real optimistic. It is coming down steady but not heavily so the plows can keep up at this point. Now tonight may be a different story if it picks up in intensity. My thought is that if we have to have this stuff, we may as well get a snow day out of it :)

Anyone remember the song Pretty Woman by Roy Orbison?

Anyway on to my card. I stamped off an image from my friend Harriet so have no idea who makes this stamp. I colored it with my Copic markers and used some paper I had in my stash. Pretty vague huh? I used my Nestibilities to make the cuts. This card was made for a friends birthday. She has received it and the birthday has passed so it is safe to post.

Until next time, Happy trails to you...
