Andrea W of Savvy Handmade Cards and Mary S. of Thyme to Create. Thanks so much for joining me here to share in cards & my little adventures. Do please take time to visit my new friends, enjoy their inspiration, and say a big Hi.
Next: I did get the lost Drivers License replaced. After searching our files for all the documents that I had been told the local Division of Motor Vehicles would require as proof of who I was, happily found I didn't need anything but my name and address! The receptionist found me in the system, I had to sign an official affidavit that the license had been lost...and Voila. Processing began. Instread of just replacing the license, since mine was expiring next year in my birth month, the officials suggested that I take the eye test and renew it.
Then right after that, was running errands, and got rear-ended. (good thing I had the DLicense replaced)! Thankfully no one was hurt, minimal damage, just a bit of insurance & official paperwork to handle. So finally the post-trip and all the barney that goes with being away for a few days, got settled around, and here I am!
- Our Daily Bread image, colored with copics. Started with some light YR (orange tones) shades, then overlaid with some of the pink (R) tones. Stamped the image twice, and handcut a couple of the roses to shape and adhere for some dimension. Hard to see in the photo. This was an ODBD image purchased at Stampaway.
- S/B Classic oval die cut the aperture and then a Darice folder from a Stampaway vendor was inked with Memento Morrocco pad, then embossed.
- used copics in green shades to ink a narrow green ribbon to sort of complement the greens used on the rose leave, and a tiny left-over heart from a spraying project was tucked on the frame.
- Die sentiment was from a new Impression Obsession Die (show purchase, not stored yet), that says "Happy Mother's Day". White snippets, 2 layers, colored with YG copics. The stamped portion of the sentiment is a new set from HLS Bold Birthday Sentiments. And if you follow the link, there is presently a discount code available, and Kylie has free worldwide shipping. This is a very high quality transparent set, and am very pleased to say that my first use of this set, resulted in a very happy outcome. The order was placed just prior to our trip, and Oh Happy Day, was waiting in the mail when we got home. So do yourself a favor and check out this set. There are several others available. I also purchased the nice Mixed Christmas Sentiments set, which you'll see used later. I'm drooling over some of the other new releases too! I think the sentiment sets are going to be so versatile.
Ok, I'll share a few trip photos...hope I don't bore you to tears...Thanks for stopping by, and hope to get back with some more cards to share in the next few days. Big Hugs.

When people hear Southerners talk about their pickup trucks, I'm sure most envision gun racks in the rear window, huge tires for mudding, etc. So I thought I'd share a picture of how we travel. This F150 is without a doubt, the nicest & most comfortable vehicle we've owned yet. It is heavy enough to ride smoothly and has a very nice interior. Also it has a roll top cover over the bed, that can be locked. Just so ya know, we're not really 'Rednecks' ...LOL! Will share more of the scenic photos in later posts. The photos at the stamp show were made with the Smart phone - and remember, we're not very good with those yet. We're taking a class on 8/26 with our provider. Bye Bye
