Well I hope you had a wonderful Labor Day weekend. I know that it sure did go fast. We could not have ordered a more beautiful weekend.
So, in the mean time I will be practicing my golfing skills and if you have any pointers, I would love to hear from you. Until next time. Happy Trails.

- Loons are water birds, only going ashore to mate and incubate eggs. Their legs are placed far back on their bodies. Therefore this allows efficient swimming but awkward movement on land.
- The Common Loon is flightless for a few weeks after molting all of its wing feathers at the same time in midwinter.
So next time I go to the lake I hope that I see both of them together again. I also hope that I will be able to capture a better picture of the two love birds. I have to be quick. So until then I will keep practicing my speediness at picture taking.
Thanks for stopping in and happy trails!

And then there is Frankie. What a handsome looking fellow he is. Don't you think? When I saw him on Dawn's blog, I instantly fell in love. However, the original card made by Kathy Alt uses Stampin' Up punches. Yah, so I really don't have them so I made due. I free cute the white circles for his eyes and also the arrows (aka bolts). Nonetheless I still kind a like him. I think he has potential. What do you think?
Well thanks for stopping in and happy stamping.

I just couldn't resist taking a picture of her favorite napping spot, next to one of my flower gardens. However, she did not get much rest with my four nephews arguing over her. Poor little girl.
Well I hope you had a great weekend. Take care and happy trails.

You can learn how to make this awesome creation at Stampin' With Diana and her blog address is http://dianagibbs.typepad.com/.
The second item we made was a Halloween double pocket card. I really liked this card. I loved Laurie's stamp set she let me use.
The last item we made was a Hershey's chocolate bar holder. Unfortunately I don't have a candy bar, so I will have to wait to post this one. I had a great time and really look forward to another play date. Hint, hint girls. =)
Thanks for looking and happy stamping.

For Ice Cream, of course! So, how about these dog days of summer? Can you say scorcher? I'm not sure about you, but I have been enjoying these summer days. I just know what is around the corner. I'll give you a little hint, starts with the letter "s" and is white. Oh, you guys are so good. Yes, snow. Well enough of that bad mouthin' talkin'.
On to the card. I just love the cards with ice cream cones, popsicles, or what ever cold treat you can think of. This card is cased from one of my favorite sites, but I can't remember which one. I like to save copies of cards into my picture account and then of course can't recall where their from. The original card used SU CS, but I just used scrap CS. I used the large tag punch for the popsicle. The scallop punch took a bite out of the popsicle. Last, but not least the word window punch was used for the popsicle sticks. I did not have the right color CS, so I punched white paper and then colored it with my SU marker in Creamy Caramel.
Well I hope you are feeling refreshed. Thanks for looking at my "cool treat". Have a good one and Happy Trails.
