Rolodex Card A Day 270

Rolodex Card A Day 270 was created from a 3X3 card I received in a swap at Your Paper Pantry from my friend Candace Scarborough. She used a ticket that Valerie Wells created. Both friends are on YT so check them out. 

I host the ticket swap and one of the challenges was bugs so the ticket has bugs on it and says cooties. The quote says, " Life was much easier when your clothes didn't match and boys had cooties." That just cracks me up. Oh and did I believe that! Except for my dad and brother who were perfect in my eyes. LOL 
Here is the process video!

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by and taking a look.

RCAD 267

Rolodex Card A Day 267
This is not one of my favorite cards. I thought about redoing it but I told myself no do overs. Learn from what you make and don't do it again. The words are right it is my favorite time of the year. I should have added some leaves or made the background different. That is what this is all about learning and growing. 
Here is the process video.

RCAD 265

Rolodex Card A Day 265
I really had fun creating this card. I used a page from an old reader. We are planning a trip to Montana to see our grandchildren. I really am looking forward to reading to them. That is one of the things I miss most about not teaching. A day could be so chaotic but when I would pull out a book to read to the class, clam and order was restored. In all of life there is nothing better than a good story. Don't you agree?

Rolodex Card A Day 263

Rolodex Card A Day 263 was created with pictures of past RCAD that I printed doubles of by accident. 

The quote says, "The way to truly know life is to Love many things." I really think that my cards have taught me that about myself. I was hoping to find one thing I liked to do the most and get very good at that, but I am finding I am one who loves it all and it is in the creating that gives me joy. I love the quote, "I know a little about a lot of things but I am a master of none." 
Here is the process video.

Thanks for stopping and have a wonderful Saturday!

Fun at the Cabin

We are at the cabin enjoying nature. Poor deer is so hungry and I am not sure why. There seems to be plenty to eat. They sure seemed to like the peanuts we had for the chipmunk, and chipmunk liked the sunflower seed we brought for the birds. 
We have had visits from the flying squirrel a little red squirrel, a big gray squirrel and a raccoon. It is a very busy little cottage. Sophie is having fun watching out the window. Her job is to keep the mice from coming in.
Here is a picture of a chickadee eating from my hand.

This video I put to gather with pictures and video of hubby feeding the deer peanuts. 

Nature is a beautiful place! I am so thankful that I have a place to go were I can really enjoy it gifts.

Thanks for stopping and I hope you enjoyed my little pice of paradise.

RCAD 261

Rolodex Card A Day 259

This RCAD was motivated by an ATC terryeo1 shared on her channel. There was a beautiful face and it inspired me to draw this face. I do enjoy trying to draw faces.

Here is the process video.

I hope your day is filled with kindness. 
Have a great one!
