Hi from the Adirondack Mountains & Daisy Card

Hi Stampers & Friends,
Hi from Lake Clear, NY!!! We have been here for a week now & we're really enjoying ourselves. I've had a good week visiting with my Mom & just enjoying feasting my eyes upon the lake & the mountains. It's beautiful here. I've been able to do a little hiking thru the woods with Abbi everyday. Even when my fibro tells me I shouldn't, I just can't pass up the opportunity. I just go slow and have been ok.
Abs loves running along the path. Deer, bunnies, squirrels, chipmunks, foxes and even an occasional bear pass along this path several timee a day, so there's lots of different smells for her to take note of. lol She's having a ball!!

I haven't had the opportunity to stamp, but I did bring some cards I made the week before we left, so I'll be sharing one of them with you today.

For this card, I've used all Stampin Up products. I started out with Chocolate Chip for my card base, adding a layer of Whisper White C/S and then a layer of Kiwi Kiss. I stamped the swirl from the Baroque Motif stamp set in Kiwi Kiss Ink. Then
I used my leftover Kiwi Kiss grosgrain ribbon for embellishment. I played with the Daisy die cut for the Big Shot and loved how it came out in Whisper White. I added Chocolate Chip ink, direct to paper on the Daisy and finished it off with a red button. I hope you like how this came out. It was very simple with FAB results!

Thanks so much for looking and if you like my card, please leave me a message, I'd love to know what you think!! I hope you're having a good Monday and able to get some stamping in!! I'll be touch, and don't forget, you can reach me by email at

Happy Stampin,
