I have managed to create something since I've been home. I needed a birthday card for a friend whose birthday is Friday. I was feeling a bit brain dead so I checked my favorite place for card sketches for some inspiration (Operation Write Home). Here's the sketch I used.
Here is my card.
For this card I used Authentique's birthday line. These were scraps from a page layout I did. The stamp I think I picked up at a $1 bin. I colored the butterfly with my Copic Markers.
Before I left for the retreat I stopped at the store to pickup some last minute card stock and other items. New product had arrived at the store from Carta Bella "Alphabet Junction". I knew this paper would work perfect with the pics I had of my granddaughter Kennedy of her first day at "Mother's Day Out".
For the left side of this layout I used last week's sketch #334 from Sketch Inspiration.
Here is the right side.
I went on a couple of walks while I was at the retreat. It's good for stretching my legs and clearing my head! Here is a sampling of some of the photos I took.
The first day I walked the sky was full of white fluffy clouds making for great scenic backgrounds!
Saw lots of beautiful horses. That of course made me smile!
There is something about seeing a road like this that bids me come walk it to see where it goes. What you can't see is the gate I shot this picture through holding me at bay. This road was on private property.
This is the property that road belong to. That road was to the right of this gate way. I try not to drool every time I walk by this place. It's kind of like my dream of a country place.
Here is another view. Isn't it beautiful?!
Saw these little beauties along the road.
As I was walking, I heard the sound of galloping. I peered through the trees and discovered this!
I'll share more in another blog. Don't forget to hop over to Cat's blog and link up or at least check out the ones who have. You'll be inspired! Have a good one!.
