Camping Vacation

This photo was  taken on our Summer 2009 camping vacation. We had a great time!

Now that I mentioned camping, we are in the midst of packing for our 2 week camping vacation when I heard the news of the campers caught in the deadly flood waters. We will definitely be keeping these families in our thoughts and prayers.

Beary Embossing!

I just loved this stamp I found at Hobby Lobby at 50% off! I don't know if I have mentioned before my Prismacolor markers that I love! I had no idea I would be able to shade these stamps so well! :)  In the top photo you cannot really see the embossed effects since I chose to not use my flash.

The photo below you get a better idea of the effect of the embossing powder. So awesome! The cards just come to life!

Embossing Powder Discovery!

My family went all out on Mother's Day as I have mentioned before. I received everything I think I need for card making. My husband really enjoys trying to make me happy. He knows the quote holds true, "Happy wife, Happy Life!"  One of the things he wanted me to try was the embossing. I had mentioned the Cuttlebug machine to him numerous occasions but somehow it was overlooked. That's okay I won't hold it against him. :)

This Thank You card was made for my son's girlfriend. She was so sweet to give me a Mother's Day gift and I wanted to do something for her in return. I embossed the stamped rose from Inkadinkado Doodle Flowers, the Thank you greeting as well as the flower pattern onto the purple card stock.

Memorial Day Brisket

This was the 2nd brisket we have smoked in the smoker it was highly rated by the family.We purchased the meat from  Rhett's Meat Market in North Oklahoma City. It melted in your mouth like butter! My husband smoked it for about 14 hrs. It was so juicy and tender he had a hard time keeping it from falling apart just moving it to the platter.
