Bunny Tails

I was at my friend, Georgia's for a play day a couple of weeks ago and I stamped off these adorable bunnies. I didn't do much to them other than the cute little tails which I colored very lightly with Copics and of course the grass. Then used Stickles on their tails. The pink ribbon was in my stash and the cool die is from Papertrey Ink and called the Filigree Border die. I cut it out with my Nestabilities Label 4 dies Thanks Georgia for the great stamp! Our daughter and family moved on Thursday evening and Friday. They closed on their new home on Thursday afternoon. I took Friday off to help. Oh my gosh! I hurt in places I didn't know I had. Better today except for my right knee - ouch! We will go back tomorrow and go at it again. I feel sorry for them with all of the work they have in front of them but they have had great friends and family helping. Until next time, Happy trails to you Sheri

Rainy Day

Good Morning Peeps! It has been spring break this week and it rained or rather was gray and drizzly all week long - well Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and then today is sunny and warm. We did get an inch of rain though and now everything is so green and the trees are leafing out so fast. On Wednesday I went to a friends house for a play date - Hi Georgia! We always have a great time when we stamp and occasionally we even get some stamping in. lol This card was one of the cards I made while at her house. It is a Tina Wenke stamp from Stampavie. It was part of a great blog candy I won from Michelle Oatman last week. I used my Copics to color and then I paper pieced the umbrella with a tiny scrap I had left over from another project. I used lots of Stickles on it to make it glitter and shine but I am afraid you can't see that. The background paper as well as the pendants are from Echo Park. I hope you like it. It was so much fun to make. Until next time, Happy Trails to you Sheri

Best Wishes

This is the second card I made for Kaleidoscope. It is made with the same set as the first card I showed you a couple of weeks ago. I love the cheery colors and they are all Memento inks. The green ribbon is from my stash. We are on spring break this week. Monday was very nice but it has rained ever since. Just a nice slow drizzly kind of rain. The grass is really green now. More showers this morning and then clear skies to follow. Until next time, happy trails to you Sheri

New Home

I know that I said that I would show you more cards from the fundraiser but I wanted to take a time out and show you this one.  On Saturday I was walking out of a restaurant and heading to Archivers to pick up one teeny tiny little thing when my phone rang.  It was my daughter and she asked if I thought I could help her make cards to announce that they have moved.  I saw this cute Jelli Bean set for only $4.99 and grabbed it.  I began to brainstorm and came up with this design.  I was really happy with it and I think she is too.  She needed 30 - 35 of them so I made 40 pieces and made a "kit" so that she can put them together.  She doesn't have a die cut machine, or any ink - well she has nothing - at least that she can find right now.  Everything she  might have is packed up.  So I thought if I made kits she could sit home and work on them while she watches tv.  I used Memento Ink, the cloud is from PTI as is the "just moved" sentiment and the base card.  The blue and green paper is from Bo Bunny. 

Ok I am reading another very good book called Save Me by Lisa Scottoline.  It is part family story and part mystery.  A really good read. 

The last two days it has been 81 degrees in Omaha NE!  Now if we are lucky in a normal winter it is 50 and we have alot of snow on the ground and the wind is howling.  This year it is warm and we have blue skies and no wind.  I was really sweating up a storm when I went for my walk today.  I wonder what the summer will bring...

Until next time, happy trails to you....

Every spring my grandson's school has an big event called Kaleidoscope which is a major fundraiser for the year. They have among other things a silent auction. My daughter asked me to make some cards for the event so for the next few weeks, I will be showing you what I have come up with. This one was made with PaperTrey Inks anniversary set from last year. I used Memento inks on the flowers, Lady Bug and Tangelo. The background is a Cuttlebug embossing folder and the ribbon and ribbon center are from my stash.

I am reading another good book by Lisa Scottoline called Save Me. You may want to check it out at Amazon and see if it is something you would like to get from you library.

Is spring finally here? I have seen plenty of robins lately. The weather is warming a bit. We occasionally are having some very nice days and then they slip back into the 40's but that is normal. What was not normal was the winter we just had. If every winter was like that one, I would not complain at all! I hope those that have been in the line of the spring storms are all safe. How frightening that must have been for all involved.

My count down has begun - only 56 more working days until I retire. Look out world, here I come!

Until next time, happy trails to you....
