Fall Birthday

Hello, I am back!!

We just got back yesterday from a trip out to North Carolina to visit our daughter and son in law that are going to Duke Divinity School.  Finally was able to see where they are attending the University, their apartment and work places. We managed to get out to the coast too, so that was nice.  We also made a stop at a store in Lewisville, North Carolina, the stamp store was in an old mill, very cool, and boy did they have some dies there, so yes you will be seeing a few new dies in the future, that is where most of my vacation spend money went.

On to the card, I had this one made before leaving so I would have something to post when I got back, it is already gone out to my brother in law but if I still had it I would have added some trees to the base of the tree.

Memory Box-- Bare Sapling, Flying birds and Grove leaves dies
DCWV -- Crafty stack and burlap paper
Inkadinkado -- Greetings/Salutations
Spellbinders -- Labels trio die

I did a little sponge inking on the sentiment tag. The tree trunk has a little bit of foam adhesive on it.

Well I haven't downloaded any of my pictures from the trip but if there is anything good to share I will post them next time.  I have a lot of catching up to do on all your blogs so I had better get started with that and my laundry .... our furbabies want a lot of attention too :)

Thanks so much for stopping by,

The simplicity is perfect for a masculine card, Connie! You remind me that I still need to use the burlap paper I couldn't live without. I'm glad you enjoyed your trip, and I'll look forward to seeing which dies you bought. I'm sure I'll be getting a few with birthday money, too!
