A couple of weeks ago, Beate had a tutorial on a telescoping card.  I had to try it so I pulled out my daisy from Flourishes and tried it.  Her instructions were so easy to follow and this is my first attempt.  I used a new Spellbinder.  Of course my image was colored with my Copics.  I hope you like it and will try it.  So easy.

After a summer of heat heat and more heat, it is actually chilly tonight. Supposed to get into the 40's.  This is a one time thing for now but it feels pretty good.   It has put my into the cleaning and purging mood.  I have lots of Stampin Up! sets for sale if anyone is interested.  Just email me at and I will send you a list.  I have made several trips to the Goodwill and have two bedrooms, a linen and coat closet done.  I hope it stays cool and I keep in this mood until the whole house is done.  It is feeling really good!  I love retirement :) 

I am also reading Danielle Steel's newest book called Friends Forever and it is very good.  So far I would recommend it.  It is about 5 kids who meet on the first day  of kindergarten and become very close throughout their lives.  They are seniors in high school right now and I am about a third of the way through it.

Until next time, happy trails to you...
