Last one for today, I promise. LOL!


Here is my family at the Royal Gorge Bridge Park in Canon City, CO. We recently visited Vail for our family vacation and took an opportunity to visit this amazing bridge over the Gorge. If you ever get the chance take it, It really puts things in perspective. The kids loved it they had a petting zoo, pony and donkey rides, a trolley, incline train to take you down the gorge, and gondola.
We really had a wonderful time, and we love Colorado!

Mother's Day Card


Mother's Day came a little fast for me this year. I have been in a funk, so creating was not top priority. This one was the card I gave to my Darling Mother In Law. Her favorite color is purple. We brought her two large hanging plants one was a bleeding heart that had purple and red blooms and I do not remember the other.
After spending time with them we went to my Sister's and visited with my family. I am very glad that I have such a close family, they really are my support. My amazing sister Susanne wrote me a beautiful card which of course made me cry. She is my best friend, and I can not do much with out her. She made my Mother's Day wonderful and I thank God for her everyday.

Faux Silk Attempt 1 & 2





Okay, this technique is from Splitcoaststampers.com called Faux Silk. All the samples looked so soft and pretty, mine did not come out well. SO, I tried again.

Still, not happy with the results but I tried twice.

Graduation is Coming

We know several teenagers that will be graduating this year. Such an exciting time in their life, getting ready for college, saying goodbye to their parents. I do not envy these parents since mine are still babies (too me) I want to keep them at home. LOL!
So, I decided that I better get started on the cards. Here is the first one with the school colors of Green and White. I have a similiar one done in gold, black and white.
