I’m home from Alaska and have a Zoo Babies card

I’m finally home again and will get back on schedule posting to my blog.  Greg and I took a 2 week trip to Alaska to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary.  I’ve been saving money since I became a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and used that savings to pay for this trip.  It was an incredible vacation!  We were on a Cruisetour with Royal Caribbean Cruise lines – the first portion of our trip was a land tour and the second part was a 7 night cruise.  We loved it all! 

I’m working on downloading all my photos and videos – I had 2 cameras – my small pink one which also takes video and then my big cannon rebel with the big lens – plus I took some on my iphone.  I had hoped to post pictures from my iphone to my personal FB page throughout our trip but guess what my cell phone did not work in Alaska.  I was only able to connect to the internet a few times when we were at one of the hotels during the first part of the trip.  But we were on the move so we weren’t at any of the hotels for very long.  And sometimes the weather impacted the service anyway. So my posting was very minimal.  I did manage to post a few times here to my blog using the app on my phone.  if you’d like to hear about our trip I think I’ll write and post some about that in between my Stampin’ up! project posts. 

The first card from the pink camera has 785 photos/videos on it.  Then I have more to get to.  So while all my photos are downloading let me move on and show you a card that I made last month.


I don’t think i’ve shared this one with you yet. This one uses the Zoo Babies stamp set.  I just love this set.  The little animals are so cute.  And I got this idea that I was going to have a card with this stamp set at my monthly card class every month.  I added this one to my August Class and it will also be available as a card option in September’s class too. 

zoo-babies2I wanted to create a birthday card rather than a baby card so I paired it with some Designer Paper and the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set.  I thought it turned out to be a fun card!
