Bless the Lord, O My Soul

I'm finally back!  Goodness, where does the time go?  I thought I had posted last week but apparently not.  I made this for a friend a while back but never got it on my blog.  I used some beautiful sparkly paper from Michaels and the platinum embossing powder from Ranger.  It's my favorite!  And of course, the die from Memory Box. 

We are now having lots of rain and it is finally warmer.  By July we will be begging for rain!  Everything is very very green and in my neighborhood, very very loud!  We had a big hail storm pass through and they are starting to replace roofs.  I had just finished all of my planting and gotten the hanging plants hung that afternoon and by 3:30 a.m. they were all gone.  I replanted and hope they don't get damaged! 

Until next time, happy trails to you...

Confirmation 2016

Our church had six Confirmands this year and I was asked to make cards for them.  This is what I came up with. I really like the simplicity of this card.  The leaves are made from vellum so they sort of just float on the card.  They are not glued down except under the cross.  I hope this gives you some ideas for cards of your own!

We had a horrible storm last night.  I just finished planting all of my bedding plants etc and we got hail and wind.  I think my plants are toast.  Lots of hail and wind!  It is still raining so have not been out to check on things, but it looks like a big mess outside.  It hailed so hard that my alarms went off.  And it hailed for a long time!

Also I picked up a book from the library yesterday that I had had on reserve.  It is Lisa Scottoline's newest called Most Wanted.  It gets you from page 1.  Hard to put down.  If you have read it, let me know what you thought. 

Until next time, happy trails to you...

Happy Birthday Stephanye

My friend, Stephanye is celebrating another birthday today!  I made her this card and it arrived on time.  YIPPEE!!  I used a GinaK stamp set and papers for this one and added some google eyes and I went with sequins for the bubbles.   I hope she has had a wonderful day with family and her grandbabies. 

It has been raining her for a week now!  We had a tornado warning, we had hail, we had lots and lots of rain and I for one am ready to see some sunshine and some warm temperatures.  We had a wonderful April up to last week when it turned cold again.  We went from the 70's and sun to the 40's and clouds.  So disappointing.  I was just getting used to going to sit on the deck.  Now I am walking with my winter coat and ear muffs on.  I think later this week we are supposed to see sun again.  I for one can't wait!

Until next time, happy trails to you!!!
