For those that stop by my blog I mentioned that my father passed away in October 2016, at that time my mother also had developed ALS (progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord) After 6 months of battling the disease she passed away last Friday.  I was in the process of making this design for her for Mother's Day.

White Orchids

Greetings and thank you all for stopping by.  I don't make a lot of all white cards because I have a really hard time getting the picture to turn out.

The other night the neighborhood black bear decided to pay us a visit, I have a really nice Squirrel Buster feeder hanging right next to the house mounted under the roof.  Well for some reason I couldn't sleep and got up and I am standing in the kitchen looking out the window.  I am thinking to myself I don't see the bird feeder.  So I look out the dining window and there is a huge male black bear looking right at me.  I start banging on the window he just continues to look at me, so I start shouting and banging and finally he runs off.  Now I have to open the sliding door and walk out there to pick up the feeder which in on the ground and the lid is off.  I am thinking to myself the entire time I sure hope that bear is really gone.  That is twice now that he has knocked it to the ground so now I have to bring it into the house every night.

Really simple design, I added mounting tape under the three Orchids and behind the first frame to add a little dimension.  Then just used two of the Matting Basics behind the first one.

Materials:
Memory Box - Twisty Stalk
Mounting Tape
My Favorite Things - Lily
Spellbinders - 5 x 7 Matting Basics B

Tulip Spray


Greetings and I hope everyone is well, if not I am sending positive thoughts out to you.
We are still having rain, not sure when the weather will actually be Spring like.

I first embossed the Paper Cone and then added the green Rhinestones.  I layered the Aubrey Blooms and coated them with Glossy Accents and Art Glitter.  Next I attached them to the Twisty Stalk and tucked them into the cone.  Finally I added mounting tape to the Stitched Rectangle Frame for a little dimension.

Materials:
Barbara Trombleys- Art Glitter 85 Crystal
Cuttlebug - Textile Embossing Folder
Impression Obsession - Paper Cone
Lawn Fawn - Stitched Rectangle Frame
Memory Box - Aubrey Bloom Set, Twisty Stalk & Tulip Petals
Mounting Tape
Poppy Stamps - Leafy Sprig
Ranger Ink - Glossy Accents
Rhinestones

Spring Basket

Greetings and thank you for stopping by my blog.

I thought I would create a fun Spring basket.  To make die cutting the flowers quicker I folded the card stock in half, that way it die cut twice as many flowers. I added Nuvo Crystal Drops to the centers and used the Trailing Vines as the branches.

Materials:
Dee's Distinctively - Small Leaves
Die-namics - Stitched Rectangle Scallop Frame
Impression Obsession - Basket
Mounting Tape - Behind the Frame
Nuvo Crystal Drops - Yellow
Poppy Stamps - Trailing Vine & Small Hydrangea Blooms


Weekend Adventure
Roozengaade - Daffodil fields Mt Vernon, Washington
15867 Beaver Marsh Rd, Mt Vernon, WA 98273
There are several different growing fields where thousands of Daffodils can be seen from the road.

We drove by a farm house where there are two large trees in the front yard, each tree had 3 Bald Eagles (sorry I typed Golden but they are Bald Eagles)
The Washington Kingston Ferry coming into the terminal.
