Hello friends : ) I am here today with a card to encourage you to play along with us at TIME OUT Challenges where there is still plenty of time to join the fabulous cards already filling the gallery. The challenge:
Masculine with an optional twist of Mixed Media
STAMPplorations is our sponsor offering a $10.00 prize!! I have been honored to be a guest with this terrific challenge blog along side some of the most amazing talent in Blogland!! I hope you will join the fun.
Mixed Media is defined as Stamps and ink plus 2 other elements that add texture and/or dimension.
While I would not really categorize my card as mixed media it technically has all the elements of this description. I really love this pretty deer in the winter woods die. I hate to say it but I have no idea who made this die. I wish the companies would etch their name and model number into the die somehow because once the packaging is gone..... For some time now I have been cataloging my purchases but this was "pre-brilliant idea". If anyone knows where this die is from please leave me a note in the comment and I will edit my post : )
Now are you ready!?! to hear what I got to do yesterday!? I got to meet Leigh Penner of To the Full blog and her three remarkable children!! They were passing through South Dakota on their amazing vacation and took some time to meet me! We enjoyed lunch together and a hike around Sylvan Lake!
Leigh and her children got to climb all over the largest rock here to see if they could find "The Eagle" from National Treasure. The TREASURE was found under the large rock formation in the foreground in the movie. I sat on the bench and watched LOL
There were lots of pictures taken but I regretted to find when I got home none of Leigh with her children made it to my camera! : ( Still, here is a tiny glimpse of the very lovely Sage getting a picture of her Mom and I. Many of you will remember Leigh has posted some pretty spectacular cards that Sage has made in the past!! I sure hope Sage will get back to posting her card creations soon : )
Thank you for stopping by. Please don't forget to join the fun at TIME OUT challenges. And in the UNLIKELY event that you have never seen Leigh's beautiful blog check out To The Full soon. Hopefully Leigh will share some of the adventure she and her family had on their vacation.
