thoughts of you

I made this card for a friend from my fave local pub (Brewsters) he is having some health issues. I know he loves his boat and fishing, so Riley was an easy choice for an image.

moose sighting!

yup, we went for a ride this afternoon and there it was, just as pretty as can be. Not too scared either I got out of the truck & took a few pics before it got annoyed and started to wander off.

I got this cute new snag ems stamp from my Lss(Judy's scrappin and stampin) and I just had to ink it up! I colored it with copics & prisma markers, and added a little stickles to the flower centers.

woods ride& a game warden...

never a good!! Actually today it was fine, but trust me there are days when I would hate to come across one. Anyways df & I went for a woods ride and tried a road we had not been on before. df found a great new fishing stream..he's always after the native Maine brook trout ya know. so we came across a large stream, there was another truck parked on the side of the road, so we just stopped right on the bridge and df grabbed his pole and was just starting to cross the road and this lady game warden litterly popped right up out of the bushes!! jumped the bejeebers out of me. we chatted with her a fw minutes and she was very happy to tell us exactly where we were (we were not sure where we were) and she told us she had been looking for the guy whop owned the other truck. She had her benoculars out and had walked a ways up teh stream but couldn't find him. anyways she never even asked df for his fishing lisence and Gary fished for about 10 minutes before the bugs got us, and, we left. I wonder if she ever found the other guy. here's a few pics including the lady warden

live, laugh, love, frame

this is a little project I made today. I used a plain wood frame from a craft stoe & crackle painted it, then I used craft cardstock and stamped the crackle back ground, corner flourishes, berry borders and the sayings. I added a homespun bow and button and also a prima flower. I used distressed stickles on the flower center and button.
