Back Home and Something to Show!!

Happy Saturday morning, All!

Rick and I went to the lovely State of Pennsylvania (Hello Mary Anne) for a couple of days to attend an outdoors show (the largest in the states) which entailed everything from sunglasses and t-shirts to outdoor buildings to atvs to outfitters from all over the world selling their hunting trips. We had a rocky start to the trip as I had a problem with our cats caregiver ....and you know from my earlier post how I feel about them. It was like having left your kids home alone and no one to take care of them.  We use a different person for them than for my MIL....she was well cared for! Anyway, we finally got that worked out after many phone calls and almost turning around to come home. Then on the last day I started getting a cold...so just let me say this trip was not as relaxing as the last one we got a chance to take. But enough of this,  I missed you all while away from the computer! I do have a few cards to show you today. You may remember that I posted the other week about winning Card of the Week at Sugar Creek Hollow , afterwards Tracy Vinson, the talented artist behind SCH...you can check out her blog here asked if I would be willing to create a couple of cards with their set "Behold" to put in the gallery she is creating at the SCH blog. So this is what I came up with:



These first two I created for the upcoming Easter holiday. My design papers are from K&Co and Basic Grey. I made a wreath for both doors...the yellow one is just flowers that I won from a blog contest that I wrapped and formed into a circle. The one on the oak door was made by stamping a circle with a SU stamp that I thought looked like a grapevine wreath, after which I punched several flowers and a small sun to create the flowers for the wreath out of the same dp. I used my flowersoft for the flowers at the side of the door. My inks were a combo of copic, prismas and SU markers.


I wanted to try an easel card using this set and using the screen door I created a birthday card.




I am in love with this set....it comes with 3 sentiments, 2 doors and the pot of geraniums. Please check this out when you have a minute and I think you will really love all of the other beautiful images that are at Sugar Creek Hollow. Sorry to make this so long, wishing you all a wonderful weekend....see ya soon.
