Happy Happy Birthday

We arrived home from our Colorado Family Reunion just in time for 107° weather. Wish the Colorado folks could share some of their cooler weather. We had a fabulous time with family. My boys were the oldest cousins in attendance so the 13 little cousins gave them lots of love.

Bob and I also celebrated our 22nd anniversary. We went on the Ghost Tour and had dinner at the Stanley Hotel (The Shining Movie fame) in Estes Park. No ghost spotting but a beautiful place.

Today's card has me still playing with the glimmer mists. I sprayed a shipping tag then used Background Basics: Text Style II for the background. It was fun laying the different elements on the tag. 

I love the Delightful Dahlia stamped on patterned paper! Don't you? ~Rhonda

  1. I didn't know you were coming to Colorado. To bad you didn't get down to Denver. It would have been great to meet you. Looks like you had a great time. We were in Estes a few weeks ago too. Cool card too. Love all the elements on the tag.

  2. I forgot to say Happy Anniversary and it is not that much cooler here in Colorado at least we don't have the humidity though.

  3. WOW great card and I love that ribbon ...... did you make that young lady?? I have been MIA with all my travels so I know I have missed a TON of posts!!! Hope you are well and your new addition is OH MY!!!

  4. Beautiful card! and Happy anniversary...the scenes in the pics look stunning!

  5. Glad you had a wonderful time here in CO. Estes Park is beautiful and so much cooler then what I saw on the weather map tonight for Texas. Beautiful card!

  6. Wow! Thanks so much, Rhonda! I PM'd you at the forum.

    Your trip sounds wonderful, but I'm sorry Colorado had a taste of our Texas heat. Happy Anniversary!

  7. Love your card Rhonda! I agree with you about the dahlia on patterened paper...gorgeous.

  8. Congrats on your anniversary, Rhonda!!! What super pics, looks like you all had fun! If you could give us some of your heatwave I'd really appreciate it! I'm in a sweater today!
    I love your card - the tag element is really fun and beautifully decorated!

  9. Love that tag! super cute and the dahlia on patterned paper is genius.

  10. Rhonda--What a wonderful card! I love how all the elements came together so beautifully. Estes Park is such a neat place and I too wish some of that cooler weather was here in Kansas! We too came home from vacation to this heat wave!

  11. Positively pretty purple card, Rhonda! You're right, the dahlia looks amazing on patterned paper--so much so, that this stamp set is now on my wishlist, LOL! Happy Anniversary to you & Bob! Very cool ghostly activity! :-D

  12. Congratulations on your anniversary! I DO like Delightful Dahlia stamped on PP - and I LOVE your colour combination on this card! So fresh! I've always loved green and purple mixed - but they looks fabulous on the kraft!


I love your feedback!! Thanks for stopping by.
