I missed posting this card a month ago, it was for another Great Nephew that turned 16 this year, and since I already made a 16th birthday card using the other truck stamp I have I decided to go with an older looking truck this time. I just stamped in black onto patterned paper. I saw this background stamp and thought it would be neat to have for birthday background, there are all kinds of sentiments that you can highlight depending on what you want to say, I think I should have went a little lighter with that though, my hubby said I should have just circled them not highlight, what do you think?
Of course I couldn't leave it alone so I had to add some clouds.
Taylored Expressios -- Word Search Birthday background stamp
Stampers Anonymous - The Journey stamp set (truck)
Tim Holtz-- vintage shabby paper (stamped truck onto it)
Fiskars -- Cloud punch
Shading with distress ink
When going through to find pictures of my hubby for our Anniversary post, I thought I would pick out some pictures to share for a Grand Canyon post. One of those pics of my hubby was in the Grand Canyon also. The first afternoon we arrived I didn't take my camera with me, I was very tired from driving and just wanted to enjoy it without worrying about taking pictures, of course my hubby took plenty for us, LOL! That evening when we went back the pictures I took didn't come out all that well, I had my camera settings all wrong. So the following pictures were our second day out. It was quite the hazy day as you can see in these pictures.
It always amazes me how anything grows out of a rock and I just thought this was cool.
I turned around to see how far behind me my hubby was and like the way the sun was shining through the tree and the shadow it cast with the canyon in the background. If you have never been to the grand canyon there is a section of it that you can walk or ride a bus and get off at the stops, we walked a lot of it and if you can manage it I would do that also, there is some pretty spots along the way.
In the next two shots I am trying to show the size of this area, in the first picture about in the middle of the picture on the opposite rim of the canyon is a building, and down from that you can see the path that you can take down into the canyon, we didn't have time for that or did I want to do that but Greg would have loved to go.
In this next picture off to the left you can see people on a platform that looks down into the canyon, as you can see there is a lot of climbing and stairs but it is amazing to see. This is in the same area as the picture before.
It is really hard to capture how big it truly is in pictures. Although I enjoyed the canyon both Greg and I agree we liked The Arches National parks even more.
Thanks so much for taking the time today to stop by and I hope your week is going well,
