So... Its been a minute.. Ok, like a couple years.  Life, like a river, flows quickly and sometimes gets out of control. Since last I posted, we have been to Germany and Singapore. 2 of our 3 kids got married and I have.. *gasp* become a Grandmother..er Mimi twice over.  I was soo not ready to grow up.  : )  But since it has been a while, thought I'd say Howdy, real quick and  let you know that I am indeed still alive and the reports of my demise have been greatly exaggerated.

Corn fed

Another fun card that I started during Arkansas retreat.  I am not a fan of fussy cutting, but had to paper piece her outfit!  As you can tell I love the Pure Innocence line.  It feeds my copic mania.  I'm so excited for the upcoming weekend when I get to see my A-babes at the Krop!  Will be working on this years Christmas cards.  Love fall and the colors! What is your favorite season?

Sandy beaches...

Backing up a season or so.. this is a card that I sent out this summer.  Had to share because I am at count down to Hawaii!  I'm so excited.  I can't believe that it has been 20 years since the last time I went.  This little lady was so fun to color and make shiny with spica.   What is your favorite vacation that you have ever been on?

Merry Grinchmas!

My youngest daughter talked me into this Riley stamp last year.  This was a quick card (except for the coloring..again..copics..stop me...wait..no dont!) The white trim has fluff on it.  I have to laugh every time I see this, one our holiday traditions is to go through the movie cabinet and watch a different christmas movie every night in December. Everyone has their favorite that they wait all year to watch.  Whats your favorite?

Cuppie Halloween

Made this halloween card when I went to Arkansas with the A-babes.  What a weekend!  So much fun!  I so miss working there, but the friendships that were formed there are lifelong.  I so need to put the copics down, I love the feel and smell of them.  Some day I will actually get around to watching some tutorials on how to use them.  Does anyone else have this problem?  Color me happy then.

Woo R U?

This is a pre-halloween card that I sent out my A-babes.  Love doodlebug paper.  Its so cute with out being too cloying.  Trying to use up some of the stash that I have ...yes, I'm a paper whore.  But I'm in good company, we are all in the same boat.  Can't believe that this year is almost over!  Sent out 3 different versions of this, owl, ghost and spider with coordination paper of course!

Elzybell greetings

Another last years Christmas card.  I so miss this company.  Elzybells were so cute! I got as many as I could before they stopped making them.  So glad that the crisp cool fall is finally here. I've been trying to get the gym as often as I can.  Success today!  10 miles on bike and 2 miles on treadmill.  My legs are no longer talking to me and my hips have submitted a formal protest.  I need to stock up on bananas in preparation for the leg cramps that I know are going to hit in the mid of the night.  Nothing more amusing for my dear hubby then to watch me jump out of bed and hop around.
