Summery Magnolia

WOW! May 1 is just 2 hours away. What happened to April? It sure did fly by quickly, didn't it? I am knee deep in end of the year school stuff but it is all good. 3 more weeks and the kids are out for the summer. Next week we look forward to our track and field day, the next week we have our annual talent show and the it is the last week with class picnics and 6th grade recognition. This year really went fast.

Our weather has been so nice lately. Very comfortable temperatures but yesterday it was very warm and humid and it made me think of this card I made back in January when we had lots and lots of snow on the ground. I thought if I made it, it might warm me up or at the very least remind me that spring and summer will get her eventually.

I used a Magnolia stamp from and then the Stampin Up set called Sparkling Summer for the summery items on the side. I used PaperTreyInk paper and colored it with my Copic markers.

Thanks for looking at my blog. I really enjoy each and every comment you make. Until next time ... Happy Trails to you

Stamping Bella Sale

I have a friend who is trying to make room for more stamps so she is selling her collection of Stamping Bella's. She mentions that none of her stamps are stained and have only been used a couple of times.

If you're interested or know someone who is you can find them at Eulanda's blog

Have a great day!

Help wanted

Ok, I have seen a ton of cards using several different papers. So I went to my LSS and bought 4 papers in the same line of Bo Bunny. I came home and used 3 of them on this card and for some reason it does not look like everyone else's. Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong? I love this little girl from Bildi. Their faces are just the sweetest. Of course I colored with my Copics. Oh and check out the lace I got from Sharon Johnson over at

We spent the whole day outside. I am loving spring this year. We mowed the lawn for the first time and edged the yard. Lucy and I took a long walk and then we took her to the dog park. We then went out to grab dinner and came home and did a lot of other little chores around the house. Oh we also turned on the sprinklers for the first time! That means it is officially spring!

Before I close I have to tell you about the wonderful blog candy over at Jodi From Oz! Check it out!

Until next time... Happy trails to you.

Happy Easter

Good morning. We are going to have a beautiful day here in Nebraska. The sun is shining and there is not a cloud in the sky. Temperature is a little cool at 50 degrees but it sure beats 20 degrees or below! Since tomorrow is Easter, I thought I should post one more Easter card before it is too late. I also would like to wish you all a very happy Easter if you celebrate it and if you don't then a very happy Sunday!

Until next time Happy trails to you.....
