Fun Road Trips Of My Summer Part 1

We love to go on day Road Trips with our friends Bob and Bert.  This week we went on 2.  Our first was to Montgomery Woods State Natural Reserve.  What a beautiful spot near Ukiah, California.  I just love the Redwoods and I am always amazed at their size.
I can't believe I have been going to Clearlake since I was 4 years old and we never traveled very far from the Lake.  Things have change now and we try to do something that we have never done before. That will leave us with plenty to do for a long time.  So I guess its a good thing that we did go around a lot.

This was one of the trees that I stood at the base and tried to get a shot from the bottom to the top.  Nope you cant see the top.  

The creeks are dry now but I love this shot.  It will be fun to go back and see it with the water.

There are 2 Monarch Butterflies one on each end of the big rock.  Do you see them?  I could just sit and watch the leaves float by on the water.

I just love ferns and moss and in the redwoods you see them both.  I love all the leaves on the ground.  Fall is on of my favorite times of the year.  I know that some will say that we don't get all the colors in California that you get back east and I must admit that I have never been back east in the Fall.  So one of these day I will have to take a trip and see it for myself.  Until then I will love looking at what I have in my back yard.

In a couple of days we will be heading off on another adventure.  Wonder where it will be?

Halloween Banner

I just love the banner that I made at Mainely Stampin.  I have been having fun in there classes.  It was easy and fast to make.  Lynn had everything ready to put together.  If you are in the area you really need to stop by.  There are not many Scrapbook stores left and we really need to support the ones that are left.  Yes you can get classes at the bigger Craft store but the little guys really need the help.  They really go out of their way to help you.

October Kard Swap Club

Well it has been a very long time since I have shared our Kard Swap Cards.  I love Halloween and the Fall season colors.  I love it when there is a little moisture in the air and you just want to snuggle up with a good book under a blanket.  Most of us don't get to really do that but it does sound good anyway.  We're more likely to have a bowl of soup for dinner.  Ha! Ha!.  You know what I mean.
Oops I am getting sidetracked from my group.  Last night we met over at Cathy's house.  She is an Artist, she paint beautifully and does all kinds of crafts.  She has things all around her home that she has made and painted.
Our project was to stamp with Staz-On on a domino then color it in with markers.  I still need to put the ribbon on mine so I can take a picture of it for you to see.

Here are all the cards together on my hutch.  You can see more on my hutch here
You can see more banners here
The cards make great Halloween Decorations don't you think?

This is Donna's card.

This is Erin's card.  It is one of a One Sheet Wonder set that she got off Pinterest.

This is Kathy's card.  Inside it say's Wish you a Happy Halloween!

This is Cathy's card she embossed and then cut out the face with a craft knife.  Very clever!  I told you she was good!

This is Jeannie's card inside is like a card within a card.  So cute.  love the googly eyes.

This is Laurie's card.  Love the potion bottles.

This is mine.  The cat is fussy cut out and popped up.

This is Lani's card.  Lots of die cuts stacked on top of each other.

This is Debb's card.  I have to say this is my favorite one.  I love the face it is one stamp.  She embossed it and then added chalk around the eyes and lip.  Then used hair spray to keep the color on. Did I mention this is my favorite one.

We set our calendar for next year so you will be seeing these for awhile longer.  Keep checking back for more.  Thanks for stopping by.
