Scenery from Colorado

Hey everyone.  Here is a picture of the moose we ran across while hiking.  He was very cool and very unconcerned.  He was grazing on the other side of a stream from where we were hiking and he posed for pictures very patiently.  LOL 

Don't forget that today is the last day you can purchase the retiring products from Stampin' Up!  Go to my website to see a list of all the retiring products, including stamps, ribbon, paper and other accessories.  You can click on shop now and purchase all your favorites right on my website until midnight tonight.  Some of the accessories are discounted too.  Go check them out and have a great day!

Wonderful Favorites card

This is another card we did in my stampers clubs this month.  I hate that we are losing this stamp set to retirement!  It is so versatile.  It has two large words: wonderful and favorite and then it has all these other words like brother, father, mother, friend, neice, husband, etc. (21 in all)  You can even say "wonderful father in law" and it has "to my" or "to a".  Just so many things you can use it for.  Anyway, we used soft suede for the brown and cajun craze (one of my new favorite colors) and then some vanilla for the big circle.  I also love the polka dot ribbon.  If you want to order the stamp set before it is gone on June 30, you can do so on my website. As you read this, my family and I are on a wonderful vacation in Colorado.  If I can get my smartphone to cooperate I will try to post a couple of pictures of the scenery!  Stay tuned!!!

On the Green birthday card

I love this "manly" birthday card made wtih the On the Green stamp.  It is also retiring on June 30.  Can you tell that I am trying to show you some of my favorites that are retiring so you can get them before they are gone?   Anyway, we used early expresso ink and cardstock with wild wasabi cardstock and of course white.  The golf ball is punched out of a scrap piece of paper which is embossed in the Big shot with the Dotted embossing folder.  To purchase any of these supplies you can do so on my website.
