The Great Outdoors

I got this idea from one of the old Stampin’ Up catalogs.  The hiking stamp is from Clear Stamp Designs and stamped in New England Ivy.  The trees are from CTMH and stamped in Indian Corn Blue.  CS colors are Chocolate, New England Ivy and Indian Corn Blue.  100_2592

Tomorrow I hope to get out in the great outdoors and do some snowshoeing with a friend.  We have about 3-4 inches of fresh fluffy snow.  Kathy, my foot is fine thanks for asking.  The xray showed it wasn’t even bruised. 

I have been doing some rearranging in my card making area.  I have 4 packs of CTMH Textured cardstock coming on Friday and I need a place to put it. 

Gotta get back to the Olympics and figure skating.

No Stamping Required

I guess the100_2591 title is a bit of a misnomer.  I did stamp think spring.  I used papers from the Caboodle paper pack.  The bird and brackets are cut out on the Cricut Wild Card cartridge.  The birds eye is from the kids section at JoAnn’s and I have had them a long time so don’t know if they are still available.  The paper flowers have CTMH sparkle in the center.  The sentiment is stamped in Indian Corn Blue because Crystal Blue just didn’t show up.

While the eastern coast is getting hammered with snow we don’t have much.  While it is nice to drive on bare roads we could use some fresh snow.  The other day Jim and I went snowshoeing and the trail had really been tromped down by a bunch of school kids.  It was hard packed but I didn’t think too much about it.  Later that evening my right foot started hurting so bad I could hardly walk and I couldn’t sleep very well.  Called my GP the first thing Tuesday morning and got an appt for later that afternoon.  He x-rayed but didn’t think it was broken but will send it on to the radiologist.  He gave me a cortisone shot and now it is just a tad swollen and getting black and blue.  The dr told me that you can break the outside bone in your foot just by over exercising.  Interesting. 

Tuesday we had our monthly card making get together.  We all wanted to take advantage of the free paper offer that CTMH has for the month of February  so we combined it into one order and had enough to qualify for a party.  We decided that no one would be hostess instead we would each get a free marker and split a pack of white cardstock.
