Finally, a card made

Hi! It seems like I have been gone forever since I posted last.  Did you miss me?
I had a very busy weekend,Bill (Hubby) and I went up to Georgetown to visit my SIL on friday, then on Saturday and Sunday Bill and I did a lot of site seeing.  We went to the Cheltenham Badlands, this was amazing to see, also went to  Limehouse Conservation Park, and Rattray Marsh Conservation Park.  
On Sunday we wanted to check out the Niagara Escarpment in the Milton area, so we ventured up to Rattlesnake Point. The view from up on the escarpment was breathtaking to say the least.  We spent a couple of hours walking the trails and such.  Then off to Elora Gorge where we walked along the trails and took in the beautiful scenery. From there we headed towards home, but first stopped at
St. Jacobs and West Montrose - where we saw the last standing covered bridge in Ontario.

For my card today, I share with you Posie Pixie.

As usual I stamped her on bella's bestest paper and coloured with prismacolour pencils.  Designer paper is from MME - happy go lucky.  Scallop border was done by using an EK Success border punch, I also used MS Leaf punch, flower was rolled and added glitter to the tops of the flower petals. Finished with some ribbon and glitter and stitching.

Well that's it for today, back on friday with another card.  Don't forget we don't have a challenge this friday, so we will be back on July 8 - if you want to get a start -  our challenge is 'ribbon' - how easy is that! Email Emily by thursday night (July 7).

Thanks for stopping by,
