Flossie Bumblethrope

Happy Saturday! Boy it was an extremely long week for me. But the weather for the last few days has been wonderful! Thursday was 68 degrees - in February!! But it is back to winter next week. Rain and storms tomorrow - ish. Oh well, no snow in the forecast so it is all good.

Today's card was made from a digi image from Just Inklined. I just could not resist her! Of course she was colored with my copics. The red paper was a piece of left over from another project and the purple paper is from Lasting Impressions. I used some Twinklettes from Taylored Expressions on her glasses to give them some bling. I think I had glasses like that years ago!! Flossie is enjoying the nice weather as well. She is going for a walk. I thought of my Mom when I made this card. She was 92 years old and her doctor wanted her to use her walker. She refused saying "it makes me look old" Well her doctor had a fun sense of humor so he suggested that she put a sign on her walker saying "My pediatrician made me use this". It didn't work but I thought it was great fun.

On another note, last Saturday night my husband got tickets to a hockey game. He had never been to one and asked our son in law and grandson's to go with him. My daughter and I decided to go out to dinner. We were sitting in a popular steak house when we looked up and saw Warren Buffett at the next table over. That was exciting! Even when you go to the shareholders meetings you don't get that close!

Enjoy your week and until next time...

Happy Trails to you....


PS. My friend Vicki awarded me the Liebster award. It is supposed to bring people to you blog and is awarded to blogs who are smaller. I have no one to send it on to at the moment but I want to thank Vicki so much for thinking of me.

Happy Valentines Day Justin and Aaron

I made Valentines alike for our grandsons. The only difference is that one is a long card and one is a wide card. I used PaperTrey Ink cardstock, SU heart cups, stickers from my stash and then filled the cups with M&M's. I mailed them together in the same place at the same time and wouldn't you know it, Aaron got his and Justin didn't. I should have hand delivered them! Hopefully by tomorrow Justin will have his. Surely the mailman knows how important it is to deliver them both at the same time. Jeeze!!

Until next time... Happy trails to you


EDITED TO ADD: Justin received his Valentine and is a happy camper. Whew! Score one for Grandma :)

Paper Trey Ink Anniversary Contest

It is Paper Trey Ink's Fourth anniversary and they are celebrating by having a customer contest. Customers are to show their favorite card they made in 2010 using Paper Trey Ink's products. This is a card I posted last spring and am showing again. I used Floral Frenzy to make this card for a friend who was retiring. I hope you like it!

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

Another Valentine

What is a girl to do when it is snowing and blowing and you can't get out except to shovel and then shovel again. I made a few new Valentines! This one was made before but thought I would post it now. It is a Hangler image and I used my Copics to color her. The hearts are ones that I bought last year and put away for safe keeping. When February came last year I went to get them. They had just disappeared! I looked everywhere at least three times. Well, guess what I found this year? Yup, right on top in a drawer that I just knew I had looked in. Does anyone else do this? I can't tell my kids, they may put me in a home! lol

Anyway, I hope it is nicer in your part of the world than it is here. Spring is coming eventually I hope.

Until next time, happy trails to you!
