Hello, You

Not a tech genius but the cell phones are great gadgets!  It is fun staying in contact and cell phones are great for quick contacts.  BUT, sometimes the old fashioned snail mail is awesome!  A note just to inspire or brighten a day.

My father traveled a lot for work and sometimes my mother would go on the road with him. I liked sending  quick notes to let them know they were in my thoughts while including some current pictires of the kids.

This card says it all in just three little words.

Thanks for stopping by and stay connected!

Life Is An Adventure

Life is an adventure so enjoy the hourney!  Life will take you on many adventrues if you are open to it.  My son then adds but sometimes in life you just idle.  I think hea added the idle part so he could play his video games!!

I like when you can use several stamps in the set on your card.

I think it is time to hit the roads again!  Have a great day and enjoy the adventure!

Doodle Hello

A doodle a day keeps the creativity flowing!  I am not much of a doodler but I can doodle curly vines.

First, I stamped the flower background and came in with a darker ink to stamp the details.  The leaves and die cut were added,  Now it is time to doodle the vines.  I love the marbled paper in the background.

Well folks, that is my doodling for the day!

Oh the treasures you will find at the dollar store!  Recently, this minion washi tape was hanging on the zip strip of washi tape and I knew my grandchildren would love a minion card for their mom!  When my granson was very little and came to visit, he sas jabbering and I asked my son what was going on.  He laughed and said "he is speaking Dave"!  I need to keep up with the time...I had not even heard of the Minions!

I had som large rolly eyes in my stash and Dave came to life!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoying this crazy life!

Route 66

Today we are taking a road trip alonge route 66 with a card and evelope to match!  You can even see the hole to hang the calendar on the envelope, but this adds to the grunge of the set.

My friend gave me some old calendars and I cut them up into envelopes.  My favorite elvelope was the route 66 one.  My sister asked if I was going to send it to her but I LOVE this envelope.  So, I sent her a picture of it!

Using the colors of the envelope the card was made to match.  All was well until it got to the color of the car.  I thought gold or tan but it just did not look right.  So, metallic grey was the color to go with.  The card background was made with distress stains.  The road trip was stamped and embossed with black powder.

Sometimes it is difficult to make a more masculine card but I just love how this set turned out!  Have fun travels in your day!
