The Lily Update and other things

It's been such a long time since my last post. And have I heard about it. So, as requested here are a couple of new pictures of Lily. She definately isn't a little puppy anymore. But still oh so much a puppy as she is pouncing on top of pour Monty the cat right at this moment.

and this cute one

Here she is all 36#. I'm sure she weighs about 40# by now. She is lots of work but I'm so glad to have her. I'm not so sure that Will feels that way but maybe eventually he will warm up to her. With that face who wouldn't love her?
Did I hear someone ask where are the cards? Yes I do still make cards. And Tuesday, March 22 is my monthy card class. Would you like to see one of the cards we will be making? Sure you do. Let me run and snap one and I'll add it, one moment please.....

Class times are 1:30 and around 4:00 pm. Please RSVP my email by noon Monday, March 21 if you are coming and please bring your own scissors and adhesive. Cost is $10.00 and we will be making 4 cards/envelopes and a 3D project. Hope to get an email from you..Till the next post...Happy Stamping...Dianne

I know....where have I been????

Lily January 24th.
Well there isn't an excuse so I will just say I'm back to my blog and I hope to  post more regularly. See above picture of what's been keeping me very busy the last month.
 I had card class last week after having to postpone it. We had so much fun....and that is what it is all about. Lily(my nearly 3 month old golden retriever puppy) was trying my patience but we survived just the same. How I love her. She is lots of work but she has brought so much fun and joy into my life. I am definately a dog lover and my day isn't complete until she has looked at me with those loving eyes and says, " I need to go potty outside again".
This is where Lily went while I was vacumning. Good thing it's a large basket I made during my basket weaving days!
This is one of the cards we made in class. I just love the greeting card kids. And for the 3-D project below, I had a swap from convention last July. So I just changed it into a Valentine theme.

Well this has taken me way too long. I'd be faster if I posted more often....So until next time.....Happy Stamping.................................Dianne

Happy Thanksgiving and Black Friday

Hi All.................

This is a very busy time....wheeewwww!!! Alex, my grandson just left. I watched him today so his Mommy could go shopping. And look what she bought for the people on my Christmas list.
So while Mary was busy at the stores I was busy off and on in my stamping room working on a project for my daughter Theresa.Thank you Tami Ackerson for the idea. I made it into an ornament with a pocket in the back so lottery tickets will slip in the back.

Now with those done I can concentrate on getting ready for my workshop on Tuesday. What to do. I'm so ready to work on something other than Christmas cards but wait.....I haven't finished making my Christmas cards. I'd better get busy time is running out. So until next time....Happy stamping.......Dianne

Hello from Yellowstone National Park

What a wonderous sight to see. Yellowstone in the fall. The wildlife is abundant, the weather cool but not too cold and there are just a handful of guests in the park. We started out this morning about 8am and returned this afternoon around 4 pm. We had packed a picnic lunch but because of the scattered showers we parked facing a grassy meadow along side a river and had lunch in the van. How relaxing and beautiful.
We then headed for the mammoth springs area in the northern part of the park. The rain turned to rain and snow mixed and before we returned later in the afternoon it was all snow at the higher elevations.
This bull elk and several others have moved into town and are grazing and resting since the visitor numbers are very low right now. How exciting to see these awsome wild animals so close up and free to roam where ever they please without being afraid.

Tomorrow we head on to start another adventure driving through Idaho and Utah I think....Until my next post......keep stamping.......Dianne
