The country

Well, it is not a card - but it is a picture of my kids. When we came back from Gatlinburg we made a quick trip to my dad's house in Fredricksburg. The kids always have a great time going to the country. We went to the back side of the ranch where there use to be a small cottage. The windmill (which they climbed and I snapped a photo of) use to be a working windmill that pumped water to the small cottage. It does not work anymore - but it is awesome to look at. If it was not 4 hours from home - we would definitely go there more often. 

I promise to be back with more cards soon. I have been stamping away getting ready for the SU convention and I have tons to show!!!

Vacation - Keeps me from stamping!

I have not created anything in a while because we have been on vacation. The picture shows us white water rafting in Hartford, Tennesee. Oh my was it fun. We had a great time. It was a little scary - worrying about if your child is going to fall in and get hurt. The scenery is amazingly beautiful. God's creation is magnificent. Of course, I did not get to stamp. But it was so much fun being with my family. We saw American Black Bears crossing the road. We got to hike to a waterfall in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park (okay, that only served to tell me that I need to work out more!). However, it was beautiful. We got to go to Dollywood and Dollywood's Splash Country. Dolly Parton really has put her mark on the Smokies. We drove over 2000 miles and we all survived. My kids even had a great time on our ride from Gatlinburg to Hernando, Mississippi and almost seemed like friends. I even finished reading 3 books. I am so glad that I can read in the car!

Anyway, I am getting back to stamping today. You will probably see more of our pictures as time goes by - hopefully on scrapbook pages.

Thanks for reading. Be back later with a new card creation.
