Quick Trip North Spring 2017

Quick Trip North Spring 2017

I had plans to write blog posts this past week while we went up north . . . but I’m afraid being on vacation went to my head and I forgot all about my resolve.  My brain just clicked into vacation mode and now I find myself at home with no blog posts being written this past week.  Don’t you love vacation?!

I thought you might like to see a quick picture, we primarily spent our time with Andrew’s family in New York but we did sneak away to Vermont one morning.  This is a picture of a covered bridge we crossed over during our trip.  (We may have turned around and gone back just to make sure we crossed it and I was able to take pictures!)  As it turns out, Norman Rockwell’s house was at the end of that particular road, but we did not have time to stop and explore.

In stampin’ news, here is a simple card we made with the High Tide stamp set in the High Tide Stamp of the Month Class the other week.Continue reading

Spring Charger Decor – 2017 Class

Spring Charger Decor – 2017 Class

I had trouble getting started with the Spring Charger design.  (Probably because it was 10:00 at night . . . )  I just couldn’t figure out where to go.  I looked through my dies and just wasn’t getting inspiration . . . until I saw a set sitting off to the side that wasn’t put away.  When I saw the Umbrella Weather framelits, I finally knew where I was headed.  That umbrella is the cutest, and we all know April showers bring May flowers, right?Continue reading
