See what we've been up to?

Hi all, first things we weren't hurt. My Mom and I had gone shopping for the day and we had such a wonderful time together. We were a little late heading home, but it didn't matter. We were heading up the mountain and we both saw the deer jumping the guard rails, and there was nothing we could do...she landed right on the hood and slid up to my side of the windshield and then off. It's a good thing that Mom was going only 40, or it would of been alot worse. She was more worried about the deer than anything else. Unfortunately, the deer didn't make it.

We're fine, quite black and blue from the air bags when they deployed, but other than that, we did ok. Poor car didn't do that well, as you can see. Just thought I'd share what is going on with you all. Only 2 more weeks left of vacation, time does fly!!!

Hope everyone is doing well and getting lots of stamping done. Have a great weekend!

Happy stampin,

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,
