Finally a card!! Lattebella

Today I finally got a few minutes in my craft room. Just don't look too closely at my floors (should have cleaned them instead of making a card). Oh well though, what's a girl to do?

I received a Stamping Bella order this past week, so needless to say, I was excited to play with a new stamp. I am very pleased how this card turned out. Sometimes as I am creating away, I get lost and it seems a card will never come together, whether it be colors, embellies, or layout, but then it does and voila! I am twitterpaited!

This card is for a close friend's birthday whom I have known for over 25 years...crazy, I know. Any who, the CS is SU Pink Pirouette, Going Gray, and So Saffrom. The pattern CS is SU hostess bundle and I pieced it on her pants as well. I just fancied them up a little with some pink pencil and stardust pen. I colored the image with pencils and mineral spirits and stardust pen for accents. Of course, I used my nesties and SU scallop punch. The ribbon, flowers and baubles were from my stash.

Hope you enjoyed my card..I just love it!

Have a relaxing evening...

ATVing at Pole Hill

Happy Saturday!

My DH and I got up early this morning to go ATVing up in the mountains. We had a lot of fun on a trail brand new to us. We actually attempted to go on this trail last summer but when we got there it was too crowded so this time we decided to get an early start. It worked!! We were the first ones at the trailhead...yippee!

Here is a picture of me on the trail...

Here is a picture of my DH, Val...

This trail is just outside of the town of Estes Park. Here is a picture of Estes Park at one point on the trail. Just a gorgeous view...Life is great!!

Afterwards, we went into Estes Park and had lunch. While we were there, I snapped a quick shot of the famous Stanley Hotel (top picture). This hotel is gorgeous and is widely known for being the location in the classic scary movie "The Shining" with Jack Nicholson.

Anyway, once again, no cards to post, but sometimes a little ATV therapy is just as good :)
Have a great night!!

Happy Campers!

Hi There! Here are a couple of pics from my Memorial Day camping trip that might I say was super rainy and wet!! It was actually a big bummer! The dynamics of the entire trip were changed by the weather. These pics were taken during the only sunny morning. But oh well...I guess a bad weekend camping is still better than the best week at work,LOL.

Anyway, the above pics are of my doggies just chillin' and my goofy husband and our little friend Bella. Enjoy! (don't pay attention to the dates on the pics, as I of course, forgot my camera and we bought one on the way to the campground, and I did not set it up).

Hope to get a card on soon! Bear with me!

I'm Going Camping...I'm Going Camping!!

Happy Tuesday!!

Just a quickie post tonight! Just thought I would share in my joys with you all. I am so excited to be going camping this weekend! My DH and I just recently bought a new camper!! We got a new KZ Spree. Needless to say, this is why I am so excited for my camping trip this weekend. We actually bought it at the end of March, so I have just been itching to get it out and use it...YIPPEE!!! It is right around the corner!

So in case I do not have a moment to post before this weekend, Have a great weekend, and I will be back with pictures to share (if I don't forget my camera) and maybe even picutres of my camper too....

How Cute are These Two?

All I have to say is "OMGOSH!!!!" these two little puppies are just adorable!!! They actually belong to my friend/co-worker, and everyday she brings them into the office and I get to "nanny" them throughout the day while I work. Let's just say my office morale has gone up a zillion percent since I get to play with these little guys. It makes the day so fun!!

Anyway, I had the opportunity to bring them home with me tonight for a sleepover too! My two dogs aren't sure what to think...It is kind of like an elephant being afraid of a little mouse syndrome...but they get use to it. Hopefully, I will get more opportunities for sleepovers in the future is so much fun.

As you can tell in the pictures just how tiny they are. The dark one is "Pepito" and the lighter one is "Lucy." In the one picture there is a DVD for scale purposes.

Have a fun know I will, LOL!

Love Ya All!

Busy as a Bee...

Hi All!!

Just a quickie post tonight as I am one busy bee! My DH and I went to Indiana this past weekend to visit my BFF, Dani, and her family. We had a good time, but boy did time fly by! Now that I am home, I need to try to get back into my routine. Work was of course crazy as it always is after a vacation, but oh well. Back to chores at home...

Have a great week...Yippee, it is Hump Day and the weather is beautiful here...,hope it is for you too.
