On our way...

We are on vacation... just me and Jim... no kids and no Jena. Jena would have loved to come. She gets so excited when Jim brings out the trailer... but where we are going, they are not very dog friendly, so she had to stay home.

We didn't leave this morning until after 6am, so we got caught in the morning rush hour traffic. Then we got stuck in afternoon rush hour traffic in San Francisco. With all the traffic, we didn't get as far as we wanted to and had to stop for the night at the Travelodge in Ukiah. After a good night's sleep we will be on the road again for the Avenue of the Giants!

More Snowmen

You've all seen this one:

Well, there's more!

The lady next door always hosts Christmas Bunco, and gives us all a snowman mug from Target as a gift. I thought I would give this set of cards to her this Christmas.

Here are some close ups:

Thanks for letting me share!

September Card Club Kit Reveal

Welcome to the Club Mojo September card kit reveal! We have 10 ladies in the club this year... 10!!! These are all wonderful ladies who I've had the good fortune to meet at Scrappin' Mojo.

It's time for our Club reveal. This month's kit was put together by Kim! I LOVE the rich Fall colors in this kit! Wait until you see all the talent and inspiration!

I bought a new stamp set from Stampotique called Birdy Up that I've been dying to ink up, so you'll see these cute little guys incorporated into my cards this month:

This first card doesn't use the birdy stamps. This is a cute stamp from MFT Stamps. I think this little girl is so cute! I'm entering her in the "So Charming" challenge at Crafty Creations:

This first birdy and rolled roses go great with the cute doily that Kim sent us in the kit:

Now this cute chicky is so cute, it makes me smile :oD

The flowers and trims on this card were all from the kit. Lots of fun fall colors here:

One last card... I just love the cute papers in this kit!

I used up almost every scrap of this kit, I love it so much!
That's it for me this month! Be sure to checkout the creations from the other ladies:

Strathmore Card Class - week 1

It's been a while since I shared something crafty. This week started a 4-week long FREE card class over at Strathmore Paper Website. This week was a lesson in pen and water color. I was going to draw a Christmas ornament, but decided that a coffee cup was easier. I was surprised how fast this was to finish... the card and envelope in under 30 minutes.

Thanks for looking!
