Thought I would do some computer work today as we cannot go outside.  We have 55 mile per hour winds right now, and the roads are closed because of the sand storm.  I am so glad I decided to do my laundry to hang outside yesterday (my poor sister's are doing theirs today and have to hang inside!!).  It is so relaxing to just have "NOTHING" to do!!  So today I am showing you a couple more of my cards made for SAB Event (yep, still have more) and more pictures of vacation. 

A simple card featuring a lot of product from the Stampin' Up Occasions Mini Catalog:  Elegant Bird Bigz Die, Attic Boutique Designer Series Paper, Large and Small Pearls, Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon, Paper Doily Large Sizzlits Die, Large Straight Pin, and Island Pacific Ruffled Ribbon (also 2 embossing folders but can't remember names as I don't have my catalogs with me -- sorry). 

Another card using the same product and White Baker's Twine (added a little tulle with the ribbon on the straight pin).

The following pictures were all taken at a roadside park on the way down to Columbus, New Mexico (from Tucson, Arizona).

This is my brother who is a prospector (dah, I bet you guessed already huh???) and antique dealer.  Now you know where I get it from (and I'm not going to say what that is, I will leave it to your imagination).

My sister Kathleen walking around.  This is the view we had pretty much the whole way down to New Mexico.

Last one -- just a close-up.
You probably won't be hearing from me for a while, as we are leaving early Tuesday to drive up to Cottonwood, Arizona (near Sedona and Jerome).  I surely hope the wind stops blowing so hard, or we may have a pretty rough time driving.

Until next time,

“Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven.”  --  Matthew 18:21-22


  1. Oooohhh!! Sedona and Jerome! Two of my favorite places. The shopping is unbelievable. And just North West of Cottonwood is Tuzzigoot National Monument. We went there to see the Indian ruins. Sounds like your having a great time.

  2. Have fun and keep safe (all of you). MSU is on their way to Sweet Sixteen. WOO HOO...TFS (p.s. Richard I love your photo-I can add it to my small collection of your pictures!!)

  3. Great pics, the sky is soooo blue. Just heard parts of Arizona received some snow, and it might hit 81 degrees here today! Hope you have good weather the rest of your travels.
