I made this card almost a year ago. I used all PTI products and paper pieced her dress. I colored her flowers, skin and hair with Copics. She has a lot of sparkle on her wings and in the flowers. Oh, and the stamp was from Northwoods. I hope you like her.

What a week we have had. It was so nice on Sunday and Monday. Lucy and I walked and walked. Didn't want to come inside. Tuesday it rained and later in the afternoon and evening we had thunderstorms and lightening. In February it is always snow! Late afternoon the radio said the two counties next to us were in a tornado watch. In February! In Nebraska! Unbelieveable! Today was cold and really really windy. Tomorrow is supposed to be in the high 50's, sunny and no wind. Jeepers! Something for everyone except for skiers. That's ok though I sure don't miss the snow this year. And it could still happen!

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

Birthday for a Man

I don't think there is anything much harder to make than a card for a man. I really struggle with cards for me. I needed a birthday card and I remembered my Dot Spot from PaperTrey Ink. Talk about a simple card! I used London Fog Memento ink for the dots and Lady Bug Red for the centers and the sentiment. I added a red gem to the center of the dots as well. Such a quick easy card.

I am so glad you stopped by. Until next time, Happy trails to you....

Finally I can post my Valentines for Justin and Aaron. Justin's is made with a stamp a friend gave me. Isn't it cute? Colored with Copics and pretty straight forward. The background paper is embossed with my Cuttlebug and a hearts folder. On Aaron's I used stickers from Hobby Lobby and I love the way it turned out. The red sparkly ribbon under it is from Michaels and is their own Recollections brand. Happy Valentines Day to everyone.

Today the skies are blue and the snow is sparkling but it is only 9 degrees outside. A good day to stay inside and craft. We have some things we have to do today so unfortunately we have to go outside.

Until next time, Happy trails to you...

Papertrey Contest Now Closed

Ok, I knew I didn't have a chance but PTI had a contest were you could download some freebies for their 5th anniversary celebration and then create something with them and post it to win a prize. I just finished my card and went to upload it to find that it closed this morning. Oh well, I have a card made at any rate. This card is made from a Papertrey paper pack called Bitty Dot Basics and 2 of the free images. One was the chicks that I cut out and "nested" in the flower stems. I thought it came out kinda cute. We had 10 inches of snow here so I can't go outside to take pictures for awhile. These colors seem to be brighter than what they are in real life. I need a light box. Or maybe I need to move south....hmmm lol.

Until next time, Happy trails to you...
