Happy Friday and Happy Memorial Day Weekend to those in the US! I was at my grandma’s in NY visiting for 2 days with Riley and am headed to Montreal today for the weekend. Riley is still at my gram’s visiting and then I’ll come back Monday morning around 2 am and then leave for home at 4 am…phewwww. Then I might be dead for 2 days and then get my act together by Wed/Thursday of next week…we are going to see Zac Brown Band next week so I GOTTA get it together right? LOL! My grams will be 91 next month and she’s still going good….this bodes very BADLY for my hubby hahahahaha…he always wants ME to slow down and I say not until I’m dead. Well my mom will be 70 and my grams is 91 and they STILL haven’t slowed down so I’ve got a lonnnnnng ways to go right? hee hee And oh boy what a trip Riley and I had to NY. My lovely GPS decided to take me a quicker way…a way I’ve never been before IN MY LIFE and I’ve been up to my grams many, many times so I was like what is going on. WELL we went thru every small town between PA and NY…one lane roads, tractors, Indian reservations…you name it. I told Riley I was taking him the “SCENIC ROUTE” LOL…and it was pretty and quicker but it unnerved me a bit since I’d never been that way. And my car was needing gas…yeah right about the time I entered the National Allegheny Forest Park…no gas for miles and miles…I was starting to sweat bullets and NO cell phone reception. It was like my GPS had talked to my hubby’s crack-smoking-GPS and decided to join in on the fun…TO TORTURE ME. I mean really? Why does this happen to me SOOOO much…I’m travel cursed I tell ya! So please if you pray, pray I have NO major incidents crossing the border…I’m super nervous about it…and that I get to Montreal quickly & safely LOL! And my French is very rusty so not sure how good I’ll be if I get lost ‘eh?

I’m the start of the Blog Hop today & the full hop list is on the front page of the CMC Site HERE if you get lost.
I used the beautiful Saturated Canary digi “Cerridwen” for my card today. To me she had a woodsy-fairylike feel so I decided to color her in natural-woodland tones for a forestry feel. I used some beautiful papers from Kaisercraft “Vintage Timeless” because I loved the browns and elegant patterns. The leafy swirls were all cut from my Silhouette Cameo. The sentiment is from PTI and my butterflies were done with a MS punch and then I inked them with soft brown ink. All my papers were distressed with my Zutter Distress machine.
She was colored with Copics: E49,E29,E25,E31,E50 / E99,E97,E25,E49,YR20 / E11,E00,R20. Then I added a few stickles to her hair…hey she’s a woodland creature so she sparkles a bit LOL. The butterflies got some stickles too…they’re magical butterflies LOL. And some diamond glaze on her eyes for shine.
Ok so I hope you continue the blog hop with my fabulously-talented DT today and see all their beautiful projects.
