Season of Friendship by Stampin Up and me

Good Wednesday to you!

Wow, I think that I am slowly getting back in the groove here in this household. We went to Fairmont Hot Springs in Britisch Columbia. Now we are unpacked, stocked up on groceries, did the laundry and responded to the many emails and phone calls, that I was so behind on.

This card I created over the weekend in Fairmont. Outside there was so much snow on the Saturday, that we decided not to go skiing with the kids, but instead to stay home. And guess what, the next day was a gorgeous day on the ski hill. A blue sky and so much sun. I totally got a sun burn. And I am loving it. And I am so proud of Reuben and Rachel.. They both went on the chair lift to the top of the mountain.. and came down. They are so little and that mountain is so huge.. but they did it. I am so thankful for their healthy bodies. What a blessing. I know, it is not something I want to take for granted.

I also like to introduce you to Cassie. She is the dog of my hubbies parents. The first time I met my hubbies parents, they just got her as a puppy. She was the cutest thing ever, running all over the place and being so generous with her happiness. We had her many times in our home when they went away on their trips. What a great dog. Cassie is now almost 12 years. Her hips don't work that well anymore.. So sad. She used to run after the ball and love to play.. Now she is more into cuddling and laying in front of the fire place..

Anyway.. all that to say. This card I created with the Season of Friendship Stampin Up stamp set. (#111776 - $29.95) What a beauty of an image they created at Stampin Up for us to use.. I so love this set. The added pearls are just the best, don't you think?

Well.. I gotta go.. have a beautiful day today where ever you are!

Inky hugs, Pauline


  1. Hi there, Pauline! Sounds like you all had a fun weekend! Such a great pcture of you and your pup, too. I'm a big fan of labs, he is so adorable! So is your card! So bright, fun and happy! I like all of the popped up flowers and the pearls dress it up beautifully. I really do love this set, so much! Have a happy day today! :)

  2. Hi, Pauline!

    Wil je nog even laten weten dat ik erg onder de indruk was van je reactie op mijn verhaal van vorige week, over mijn zusje.
    Vreselijk wat jij hebt moeten doormaken, zeg. Kan me levendig voorstellen hoe jij je voelt, ook met betrekking op je eigen kids. Ik herken dat gevoel wel...
    Dikke knuffel vanuit het verre Nederland, misschien kunnen we elkaar op afstand een beetje steunen. Elk beetje is welkom, vind ik.

    Liefs, San

    P.s. mooie kaart weer!! ;-)

  3. Such a beautiful card, Pauline! That puppy is adorable!!! Sounds like you had a wonderful trip. Hugs,

  4. It's good to see another gorgeous card made by you. I love it. I also loved the story and the picture of you and that lovely dog of your mother and father-in-law. ( Is that correct English? )


Thanks so much for leaving your comment. Enjoy the rest of your day! Take care, Pauline
