The Parents

Have you seen the commercial about the kids knowing their parents are at Disneyland but just know they are so bored because they are OLD and then they show the parents and they are having the time of their lives?  Well, this reminds me of them!  Isn't it funny?  The man whom I called Lester is all decked out in the brightest duds he could find.  His wife, whom I named Hilda is much more conservative.  But I bet once she takes off that swim cover up she can really make the party happen!  The adorable couple can be seen here.  While you are there, check out the other images.  Holly at Eat Cake Graphics has some really fun stamps.  You can let your imagination soar and create some great scenes with her stamps.   The embossing folder with the clouds is from Darcie.  The cork "sand" and the water sticker were both from friends.  Thanks Georgia and Nancy!  The paper is left over from my last card.  

Until next time, happy trails to you!

Bright enough?  I just had to combine these colors and the airplane was screaming for some bright colors.  This is way different for me but it was so fun to do!  I made a bucket list on the notepad.  The airplane is from Whimsy and can be found here.  It is called Toy Plane.  Such a fun card for a little boy or for child on your list who may be going to Disney World!    You could make it more for an adult by changing the colors.  Lia Stampz is the designer of this cute image as well as lots of adorable images.  I love that you can resize or flip the image to make it so personal for your needs.

Until next time,  Happy trails to you...

Technique Tuesday Flower

I bought this set of stamps from Technique Tuesday a while back and finally used it this week.  It was so fun to do.  I think the background fabric looking stamp is from Hero Arts but it is probably at least 12 years old.  I had fun making something different from my norm. 

Until next time, happy trails to you!

Viewmaster Memories

Who is old enough to remember the Viewmaster?  I never had one but the neighbor kids did and I remember us looking at that for hours.  When Tim Holtz came out with this die, I had to get it.  This little bear from Whimsy.   Little Bear Canoe Adventure and there are several wonderful sayings that come with this cute image and guess how much they cost?  Nada, zip, nothing! Free with purchase of the digi!  What a deal!!  Doesn't he appear to be looking for salmon!  I paper pieced his canoe and colored the rest with my Copic markers.  The paper is from my stash.  I am really loving the digis from Whimsy. They are so fun to work with and can be made larger or smaller or flipped however you need it to be.  Try doing that with a rubber stamp!  Oh I still have a ton of rubber and love them and will continue to buy more but such a cool change of pace for me anyway.

Until next time, Happy trails to you!

Well, we are sure seeing the spring rains with occasional snow showers.  It has been cloudy and lots of light rain for a week now and more on the way.  So I thought this card would be appropriate.  Isn't this paper wonderful?  It is from SEI and called vanilla sunshine sunny showers.  It is so sparkly and fun to use.  The boots are from an older Stampin Up set called Flower Filled.  I used a rhinestone for the button on them. 

I hope you have sunny skies and warm spring breezes wherever you may be.

Until next time...happy trails to you

Meet Frankie!   She is a new digital image by Marika Collins for Whimsy Stamps.  Doesn't she just look like a typical teenager looking at you after you have just told her what was for dinner and saying "whatever Mom".  Rest assured, Frankie will grow up and be a wonderful young lady with kids of her own.  Payback is on the way, Missy!  There are some great digital images so do yourself a favor and visit Whimsy and spend some time browsing around.  You won't be sorry!  

Until next time, Happy trails to you...

April is a busy birthday month and what a wonderful month to have a birthday.  Spring is here and flowers are starting to peek their heads out of the ground.  Trees are budding and birds are singing.  Oh April is such a wonderful month.    My dad would be 97 on April 18th if he were still with us.  I also have several friends who have April birthdays.  This card is for Georgia whose birthday is today!  Happy birthday Georgia.  We were able to get together on Friday and celebrate so that was fun.  I will be back in a few days with a new Whimsy digital card so stay tuned!

Until next time, happy trails to you!
