New Post Design

Decided I needed a make over on my blog. I love this design because it shows my other love...bicycling with my hubby. We went last night and what a beautiful night to bike. We did our usually 20 miles. We just love being with nature and enjoying all that God as created. At least this time we didn't see a timber rattlesnake. We did see a cute little mouse. I actually almost ran over it. We also saw the usually deer (they especially like to come out after 6 PM) and tons of baby bunnies. Then we stopped at got a hot fudge sundae made with peanut butter yogurt. SO YUMMY!!! I love when they have that flavor.

Cherry on Top Award

I’m tickled “pink” and feel like I just ate an ice cream sundae with a “Cherry On Top” when I was surprised by Kate at Small Bits of Paper for presenting me with the Cherry on Top Award. I’m so honored that she choose me. Kate is very talented and has a great sense of humor. Thank you KATE!!!

Here is a picture that I love. It is of our son and daughter and our daughter’s wedding. It was taken right before the beautiful ceremony.

"Lots of Love" Card

Thinking of You cards

Thinking of You cards using my stash. I used just scraps of paper that I had and some things I bought from clearance sections. I just love the look of those outline stickers.

Birthday Cards

Here are a few birthday cards that I was just using up some of my stash. I refuse to buy anything until I use up some of my stuff. These stickers that I used were called: Anita's Art Stamps Outline Stickers. I really liked them when I put them on the darker paper. I bought them so long ago from a clearance rack and got them for nothing from Pat CanTan. and the felt flowers were from Ollies.

Timber Rattlesnake

Hi all,
Just had to post these. We bike the Trails to Rails trail for years and never saw a timber rattlesnake for years. Last night we went a biking even though it was 93 degrees at 5:00 pm. It was a beautiful evening to bike. At our half way point we ran into this snake.
