New House

Finally! I am back. It has been such a busy time and each time I think I have a minute something comes up. Let's see, since I was last here, we helped move our daughter and her family to a beautiful new home. We went to Kansas City to meet with a cousin of my husbands whom we have never met. What a wonderful day that was! We celebrated our youngest grandson, Aaron's First Communion, we rushed to the hospital when our daughter was in a car accident, plus worked full time and did the routine every day things. No wonder I haven't been here! Things will settle down soon and after only 20 more days, I will be retired. Yeah!! Anyway, the reason you are here is not to hear all of this but to see my card. I made a card for the kids when they moved into their home. This is sort of how their house looks and sort of the colors of it. Well, you really have to use your imagination to see this, haha. The stamp is from a stamp set made by PaperTrey Ink titled Boards and Beams and the paper is also from PaperTrey. I colored with my Copic Markers and the fence is from Taylored Expression I think. It was cut from a friends die a year ago so am not positive. Until next time, Happy trails to you... Sheri

Happy Birthday

Happy Saturday! Well, I meant to add these birthday cards earlier in the week but life got in the way. My friend, Georgia had a birthday last Saturday and her family had a surprise party for her. Well, I sent her a card in the mail with the promise that I would get over to her house later with her gift. That is the card with the flowers. That image is from GinaK and colored with my Copics. I popped it up and left the flowers on the lower part. I thought it came out nice for someone who loves flowers. Then for her party I used a Mo Manning image and made the adorable little girl with the static in her hair. I just adore her. Isn't she funny? Again I colored her with my Copics and added some bling as well. This has been quite a week. On Thursday morning I got a call from my granddaughter and she said her twin brother had gone to the hospital in the middle of the night for a kidney transplant. Yippee! He has been waiting for 2 1/2 years for it. He is doing well and feeling better already! The kids are only 22 years old so he has a long life ahead of him. We are expecting strong storms today and tonight. They are saying there it is very possible for tornadoes to form. If you are in the midwest, stay safe, my friends! Until next time, happy trails to you :) Sheri

Little Bunny Fufu

I just got this stamp set from All That Scraps and had to make it up quickly for my granddaughter. She used to sing this song to Grandpa just to get his goat. It drove him nuts! I think she sang it until she was 14 years old! Now Makala is a preschool teacher and is singing it again! Of course it is colored with my Copics. I hope everyone who celebrates has a happy and blessed Easter. Enjoy your day with family and friends. We are celebrating quietly this year. Our weather is supposed to be sunny and 70 degrees. Can't get much better, right? I went to a surprise birthday party for a dear friend today. I could not decide if I should post her birthday card or this Easter card. Georgia, Happy Happy birthday and I promise to post your card soon. Until next time, Happy trails to you... Sheri
