Card Day at Linda's




When I visit family in Ohio, we always have a card day at my cousin Linda's.  What a great time This time, my daughter got to do it too.  I am not sure how many cards we actually get done because Linda has great food and good wine.  But, this time, I think everyone managed to be fairly productive,  The fun part is the camaraderie and sense of family.  Just lets say, a great time is always had by all.  

Judy, check you the mini cards on the first page.  They were printed on the Silhouette and sized to my liking.  I actually stamped on them and added embellishments.  I thought they were pretty cute.

Spectacular Morning.

I was up early this morning and found I wasn't needed at the grand kids, so I took the long way home and was rewarded with these beautiful sites   Taken at Renforth around 7:30 - 8am this morning.  I have always loved the way the fob squeezes through the gap from Saint John and slides over the river like whip cream.  Pretty.

Harper's Ferry Historical site

Of course, we were deep into Civil War Territory. So, we opted for a trip to Harper's Valley and John Brown country instead of a trip to Washington DC. I think we made the better choice. These are just a few of the photos we took that day. We stopped half way to our destination to get lunch and found a Fashion Bug with a huge sale going on. You know we did the dirty. Yup, bought lots of stuff and had a fabulous chicken and cranberry sandwich at McCallister's. The potatoe salad was almost as good as mine. LOL!! Kriss and I take photos of things that catch our eye, as apposed to documenting the place. It serves both purposes, but it is a lot more fun because to find corners and back yards that aren't on the tourist walk to take photos of . Thus, the photo on the top left side of the layout. Someone had stacked rocks on their rock wall and we wondered if they were somone's interprtation of Inuksuks. They were definately photo worthy. For both of us. The little photo on the top right side is from our mountain trek in the Smokey Mountains. It is Honeysuckle, Virginia style. So, done for now, but I will be playing with my Studio J some more today. I am hooked.

More Fabulous Mountains.

I must say, Kriss and I had fabulous weather for this trip. On the first day, we took the National Park drive through the Smokey Mountains. What a ride. The views were just incredible. As you move down through to days post, you will see some of the incredible views. On this drive, we were amazed at the amount of Dogwood we saw. The trees were dotted everywhere we looked. These were taken in a picnic park we came across on the drive. We both took tons of photos here, and you will see more of them as I scrapbook them in Studio J. Yes That is Kriss sitting on the wall, and peaking from behind a tree. The chubby fella with the Orange striped barre ll is just one of the many road works guys we came across and he was kind enough to let us photograph him.
Kriss and I just wandered here in Virginia, taking roads not so used and found a treasure trove of photo opportunities. You will see them later.
