Pink Cowgirl

Welcome to a new Serendipity Stamps challenge and a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the store.
I know this is just like my card in red , but this pink one was the first one I made and had to share as well. 

After coloring with distressed inks I added Glossy Accents.
 I masked the sentiment to leave only ...Sending Smiles, love that font!

I love these boots and thought they went great with the new Howdy die!  
Thank you so much for the visit and taking time to comment!

Happy To Be Home!

Hello!Just came back from vacation. We went to Yosemite National Park with family and friends and as always  had a wonderful time. I am not the best camper and never camped with our own children, but now that they all go, we go too.  I get eaten alive and each bite swells up and I look like I was beaten with a baseball bat. Why do I go? Because its gorgeous and I love being with my children and grandkids. 

My son Richard took this picture with his phone on the 4th of July. 
This was near Glacier Point Yosemite. The Lord lit up the sky!

This is how I made my background( backside of my card)

Sorry my photos are not that great.

Thank you for all the sweet comments on my past three post while I was gone.
 I hope all my American friends had a wonderful 4th. Thanks for the visit today! 
God Bless!

A Day In The Park On The 4th Of July

Hello there! We have a new Poppystamps challenge, hope you can play along. 
The random winner will win a Poppystamps die!

I watercolored the blue water, and sponged the sand .

 I had so much fun creating this little water front scene. 
I used red, white and blue because I knew this post would be up on the 4th of July. 
God Bless 
 Happy 4th of July to all my American friends!

Second Helpings!

Welcome to the 12 Kits Of Occasions! 

Its second helpings over at the 12 kits blog today! I chose to make all the same designs using lots of leftover patterned paper from the kits.

Sorry the above 4 pictures are such poor quality. I gave these away in a set and  I could not rephotograph them. 

 I used the Die-namics Quilt Square Cover-Up on all my cards. 

Although these were time consuming to make I enjoyed making them as it was very relaxing. Each card design was cut out three times. I was able to use coordinating paper on some.

Hope you have a wonderful week!
Cant wait to see what the rest of the girls created

I added Glossy Accents on all of the little critters eyes.

Hello! Quick post.  A while ago I colored these images in non traditional colors just for fun. I think I used a variety of inks and pens.  It was nice to create a card with everything ready to go. We sure had one busy weekend! Hope yours was a good one.  Thank you for all the Anniversary wishes. 

Distressed inks.

Taking Your Best Friend Fishing

 Anja Curvers brings us  this darling  inspiration for challenge #24

Welcome, I hope you are all well and happy! 

This will go on the gift I have for my husband, we are blessed to be celebrating 39 years of marriage today. ( yep I was a teen bride) 


I had fun creating this little tag and I have to say it came together rather fast! I love it when that happens! I might change the  Caribbean Stripe   twine to brown. 
Everything on the tag is from Poppystamps and the tag itself is from Serendipity Stamps Stitched Duo 1(pretty pink posh) 

Cant wait to see what you create!

God Bless!
