Vacation Pictures

Hi card today but I would like to share with you some of my vacation pictures from last week. Just a couple of the pretty/interesting things I saw while hiking!

We passed several different waterfalls during our many hikes but this was one of my favorites! Can you blame me? Isn't it just gorgeous?!

It was such a nice day I thought the bright sky with white fluffy clouds over this lake was just breathtaking!

Can you imagine fitting through this area?? It is literally called "Fat Woman's Squeeze"!!! LMAO!! Appropriate don't ya think?? And it sure was a TIGHT squeeze!

I just thought this was a beautifully colored piece of fungi with some neat looking critters on it! What can I say...I love nature!! :)

Hope you enjoyed these photos and if your interested in seeing a few animal pictures from the zoo let me know!

Happy Anniversary....

TO US!!!
Today is our 3 year wedding anniversary!!!

Thought I would show you a few pictures of us on our special day...3 years and a few (or more) pounds lighter! LOL!

And this is the card I made for my dear sweet hubby! I love him with all my heart! :) Tonight we are celebrating by having a fondue party for 2! If you have never tried the art of fondue and love snack foods you REALLY need to give it a try! Trust me...I know my food! HAHA!!

I am entering this into one challenge:
Stamping Vacation - 5th build a sketch

Have a great rest of the day!

Berry Sweet!

Digi is from Doodle Palace

I have been picking berries up to my ears lately!! LOL! So many that I'm not sure what I will do with them all...guess lots and lots of dessert!! Oh darn! HEHE!

I tried a few things different than I normally do on this card...let me know what you only makes me better!!
First is the shading in my coloring, second is the use of a charm, third is the bottom cut out grass.

Charisma Cardz - Circles
Fab N' Funky - Sketch
Creative Inspirations - Sewing/Faux Stitching
Cupcake Craft - Summer Delights
Delightful Sketches and Challenges - Texture (ribbon and charm)
Digital Tuesday - Use a digi and get trendy (I used the popular red, white and blue color theme)
Sweet N Sassy Digi Day #20 - Patterns (circles)

FYI- this card gives you a little hint on a challenge that I came up with next week for Doodle Palace...can't tell you the exact challenge yet (could be colors, maybe a sketch? just never know!!) but I hope you pop back in next Tuesday to join in my first challenge!!

Thanks for stopping by and I'll be back tomorrow with an extra special post!!!

So Proud!

This is one of my nephews and he just graduated highschool this past weekend! WOOT WOOT!!! CONGRATS!!! Love you bub! :)

...and as promised A CARD!!! LOL! Finally something crafty to show you...I was actually up at like midnight before his graduation finishing this card up.
Digi is from Dustin Pike and I finally used a gold sticker for the sentiment that I received from my friend Merry. I am really bad about getting presents and just looking at them not wanting to use them up. I like to hoard pretty things...hehe! But I am trying to get better at enjoying my lovely gifts so thanks again Merry! You know I love the look of those stickers!! :)

Crafty Catz - male theme
Die Cut Dreams - Celebration card with number on it (It is hard to see but I think if you click on the picture to enlarge that would help...I put the numbers 2010 on the diploma in his hand in gold)
Quixotic - Emboss
Stamping Vacation - Clear as mud (star) .... a new challenge where she gives you a word to interpret but you can not use that item on your card at all. So I thought of my nephew as the "star" but I do not have any actual stars on my card.

Hope you are all still there since I haven't posted a project in awhile! Feels good to be back!



I was absolutely chuffed when my pal Dawn from Dawn's Craft Place
e-mailed me yesterday telling me she had featured me over at the Paper Craftorium. You can check it out here. I want to thank Dawn for thinking of me...such a sweetie! And what a nice surprise to be featured! Another big cheesy grin from me!
