Blended flowers

Did you wonder if I had fallen off the face of the earth?  I have been busy making cards for my church's college students and sending them out.  And I have started my Christmas Cards.  I am in the midst of Christmas around here.  But since it is officially still summer I wanted to showcase this card.  It was so easy to put together. All I did was to die cut the flower with gold card stock and I blended inks on white cardstock and spritzed it with water and I had a finished card!

Has anyone else started their Christmas cards?  When I worked, I always had them completed by the first of August before I went back to work.  I am getting lazy!  LOL

Until next time, happy trails to you...

IT'S A BOY!

My neighbors and friends are having a new baby very soon.  His name will be Paxton.  I just got this stamp of a giraffe from Impression Obsession and thought it would make a really cute baby card.  The sentiment is an oldie from Verve. 

Until next time, happy trails to you

Hello Gorgeous!

I thought it was time for a fun card.  I picked up this digi several months ago and had to color her up.  Don't ya love her hat?  I put her on an embossed brick wall by Cuttlebug.  Of course I used my Copics to color her up.

I have been missing as we took a trip to Myrtle Beach South Carolina.  We stayed in a wonderful condo right on the beach with a great view.  The sunrises were amazing!  I tried to be walking on the beach to see them but twice I woke up too late and saw it from our deck.  We stopped at Churchill Downs on the way and then went into Charleston one day while we were there.  On the way home we stopped in Asheville NC and rode a steam engine train through the Smokey Mountains and then went to Nashville TN and spent two fun days there and went to the Grand Ole Opry.  Last stop was the top of the Arch in St. Louis.  As many times as I have been by it, I had never been to the top so now I have.  Anyway that has kept me busy lately!

Until next time, happy trails to you

Online Card Class - Rainbow

I am taking the Rainbow card class and this was one of the cards I made for today's lesson.  It was a tough day with lots of computer problems which are all now fixed so I treated myself to an evening in my craft room.  Of course the rainbow is the lesson part of this card.

Until next time, happy trails to you...

Vacation

I made this card for a friend as a swap card.  I believe she will have it by now and I am not sure she sees my blog.  But we just got back from a two week vacation at the beach!  I thought this card would be perfect!  We went to Myrtle Beach and spent a week laying in our beach chairs and walking along the beach collecting seashells.  My daughter and her family and I went.  We stopped at Churchill Downs on the way and saw where they have the Kentucky Derby.  Much less crowded and it was fun!  We saw the horses exercise too so a mini mini derby. LOL.  We went to Charleston South Carolina one day and saw the sights there.  I bought a sweet grass basket from a sweet lady named Trudy.  On the way home we stayed a couple of nights in Asheville North Carolina and rode in the a steam engine through the Great Smokey Mountains.  Then onto Nashville for a couple of days.  We finished up in St. Louis and went into the Arch.  I have been to St. Louis many times but never in the Arch.  The kids have been several times.  Now back home and have many memories.

Until next time, happy trails to you...

Beachy card

I made this card for a swap awhile back and forgot to post it.  It is an older Gina K stamp set and I watercolored it with my Zig Clean Color Brush markers.  I used fishing line on the starfish and would it tight so that when she opened it it would spin around. 

Thanks for stopping by

Until next time, happy trails to you!

Happy Anniversary Michelle and Brian

Today is my daughter and son in love's anniversary!  Eighteen years ago today they were married.  Where do the years go?  I made this card for them and it is all Altenew.  The sentiment is from the Painted Poppy  set, the flowers and leaves from the Dahlia set and the inks are also Altenew's ink.  The only other thing on this card is the Nuvo drops and they are in autumn red. 

Until next time, happy trails to you...
