Watercolor Panels

Taylored Expressions has come out with a packet of watercolor panels for people to color.  There are several companies who are doing this now but I happen to have these.  I really love coloring them and turning them into cards.  These were colored with my Zig Clean Color Markers.  They sure make a quick card!  They will not replace my stamps and other goodies but these are great take alongs if you are sitting in a doctors office or waiting for someone or for a game to start.  They are small enough to pop into your purse and go.  Give them a try!

Until next time, happy trails to you...

Happy Birthday Tiffany

Today is my oldest daughter's birthday.  We went out to lunch to celebrate.  I made her this card but after I colored up the bird I had no idea what to do next.  Finally came up with these fun balloons and hearts.  I like how it ended up but it was one of those week long card LOL.  Happy birthday Tiffany!  Hope you liked your card :)

Until next time, happy trails to you

Happy Valentines Day!

I wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a happy valentines day!  It will be cold here in Nebraska but spring is just around the corner (I hope!)  The hearts on this card are all red but the camera made them look different.  I really wish I could have made them like they look.  I think they are cool!  The flourish is a very old stamp from Papertrey Ink.  And the doodling was my very own talent.  HAHA!!!! 

Until next time, happy trails to you!

Starburst or Quilt?

I just found this picture of a card I made last summer and never posted.  It was really fun to do and fun to choose the colors!  I decided that it was easiest to use a paper pack as all of those colors and patterns coordinate.  Anyway, here is the finished product and I hope you like it!

Our snow was not near what they predicted.  Oh we got heavy heavy wet snow but only about 4 inches and the wind was not bad either.  In fact the day of the storm, the snow stopped by noon and I went out to use the snow blower.  It was actually very nice outside!  But the next day the winds came up and it was not near as nice.  The snow was heavy enough that it didn't blow too much.  Not far from us was much much worse.  In fact 50 miles from here the interstate was closed for 2 days for a distance of about 230 miles!  That never happens here.  We just got very lucky.

That's all for me today.  Until next time, happy trails to you...
