Usually I just make Mady a card because Drew is one of her Godparents. I keep hearing how excited Sydney gets when Mady gets her card. Since we saw both little sweeties this Summer when we all got together for my birthday in August. I decided to make her one too. Also sent some Halloween cards to my nephew’s two sweeties. Saw them this Summer too for the first time in a loooong time.
Just a quick story from this Summer. We had hiked down to a beautiful waterfall in the Black Hills. Steep with lots of roots, wet and slippery. Should give you an idea how treacherous the trip up was. Jacob was holding my hand the whole time. Going as fast as a young kid can, dragging me behind. :o) We get to the top and I’m panting trying to get my breath back. Jacob stops and looks at me and asks, “do you want to run now”? Between laughing and gasping for breath I said, “no, I don’t want to run now”. He looks at me and says, “that’s ok I’ll walk with you”. You just have to love to the little guy! 🙂
Anywho here is Sydney’s Halloween card. I used Treats from Saturated Canary. It was fun coloring her with her green skin.
Here is Mady’s card. I used Hazel digi from Wee Stamps. It’s been so long ago I think this is where I bought it from.
Now, I have to get started with Christmas cards. Still am working on my Wine Journal and 60th Birthday Trip book. When I get some images colored I’ll post them.
Thanks for visiting and leaving a little love.

I haven’t colored any images since June and did I ever feel rusty. Hubby told me “it’s like riding a bike”. I had to laugh at that even though it did come back. I used May a Saturated Canary image for Annette’s card. Although, I do not see it in her store anymore. Annette is the queen of CAS cards. Although, if you are a lucky recipient of one of her cards you can see the many layers of her cards. They are clean and elegant and always a treat to receive. So here is my version of CAS.
As you can see totally unlike anything I’ve ever done before. I did see this idea on the Saturated Canary FB group and really liked it. The dark shading isn’t this dark on her face as it looks here.

I’m getting better at just doing it since I started Art Journaling. Before I would sweat it about how to get it perfect.
I have a few big projects I’m working on. On vacation we went to a winery and did the taste testing. Fell in love with the whole experience. I bought the Wine Journal that Moleskine has and have been doing mixed media techniques on the front pages etc. I’ve printed out some of the digi images that MIC has about Paris and will be coloring them and putting them in the book along with Wine O’ Clock image from Saturated Canary. (She is holding a wine glass).
Second project is a book on my 60th birthday as we were on vacation and my two sisters and their families were also there. So I have images that go along with the things we did that week.
Well, this has been a little gabby for me. Thanks for stopping and spending a few minutes with me. Thank you for the love you leave.
This is the year my friends and I turn 60. Where has the time gone?? Some days I feel like I just graduated from high school. Then there are days when I feel each and every day since high school.
I used “Ellie’s Birthday” from Saturated Canary.
It is finally feeling like Summer this week. Temps in the 80’s. It’s warm enough that I planted my flowers. WaHoo! Now we need to figure flowerbeds and then have hubby build them. We do need to have some bushes and flowers maybe then it would feel like a home.
Much to my hubbies disgust I have found a new hobby to try. Making jewelry!! 🙂 I guess we’ve gone to the Black Hills to many times that I have fallen for earthy-looking jewelry. I’ll post a pic when I get something made.
Thanks for stopping and visiting with me for a while. Also many thanks for the love you leave.
Have a good week.
June is always a busy month of birthdays for me. Three birthdays three days in a row. I made the cards in May so I wouldn’t be so pressured when the time came. First up is my oldest sisters birthday. I used Saturated Canary “Sisters & Friends” for both of my sisters which I do not see in her shop anymore. 😦
Next is sister Deb’s card.
Third is my friend Linda. Her card is “Sybil” from Home Grown – Sugar Nellie. For some reason the minute I saw this image years ago I thought of Linda. So years later I finally make it for her.
Thanks for stopping and visiting with me for awhile. As always, thank you for the love you leave!
Have a great week!

This was a milestone birthday for Drew this year. He turned 30! Where has the time gone? It feels like it was in the blink of an eye. As a parent we always feel like no matter how old our children become they are still our little boy. I just couldn’t pass on this image from Saturated Canary. It is “My Boy“. It was sooo Drew. He had favorite blankets and a bear when he was small so this image was “perfect”.
Drew had a 3-day weekend so we took off for the Black Hills for some warmth and for the relaxing beauty of the Hills. We went to a few places we have never been before so that was fun. The Northern Hills had snow, that is always beautiful out there. Southern Hills were pretty much snowless. We did some hiking so that was wonderful to be out in the fresh pine-filled air. Of course, the day we left it was supposed to be 70º. Isn’t that the way it goes? We did eat outside one day as it was warm enough.
I used Tim Holtz “Happy Birthday” from the “Just Sayings” stamp set. Also the hinge was from the “hardware findings” die.
Thanks for stopping and visiting with me for a while. Always appreciate the love you leave.
After I got my cards made for the guys I decided I had time to make Mady a card too. I used the digi “Love Heart” from Mo Manning. What an adorable image!
Drew’s card is “Harriet Heart” from Saturated Canary. I don’t see it in the shop anymore.
Mady’s card I used “hugs & kisses” from Saturated Canary. Always loved this image. Cute, cute!
I had a blast making these cards.
