Thanks, Pardner!

Coffee of the Day - Gingerbread (yeah, not really appropriate for the season, but it sure does taste good!)

My family leaves tomorrow to attend a reunion in eastern PA. I'm not well enough to go along with them, but I am so very happy they get to go! it has been years since Dave last saw his mom, so this is a pretty big deal - well worth a 6 hour drive for them. I know they are going to have a wonderful time!

while they are gone, some friends of ours are coming in to work the kitchen at Camp. Dave wanted me to make a thank you card he could leave for them. this cutey turtle image from QKR Stampede seemed perfect!

I added several of the landscape digi images from Eureka Stamps to help complete the little scene. You'll be seeing these quite a bit in upcoming posts. our theme for this summer at Camp is 'Go West,' and I am making cards for not only my family, but a few others who will be working there, too.

I used digital papers from the Carta Bella Giddy Up collection. burlap ribbon is by May Arts while the red satin is more from the Really Reasonable Ribbon May Club kit that I won. sentiment was computer generated, buttons are from my stash, and flower is by Petaloo. I added a bit of faux cross stitching to the sides of the paisley paper. a touch of shimmerz paint on the dinner bell along with an arrow die cut complete the card.

I hope to get around to everyone's blogs this weekend to say hello. I'm still trying to do a bit of work on my computer. little bits here and there, but it's almost finished! hooray! :)
