This week's Creative Cat Crew color challenge #27 are Halloween colors. I do not as a rule make Halloween cards, so I decided to make a fall colors birthday card using Timeless Textures. I chose a small simple sentiment from At Home With You. The colors for this challenge are: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Garden Green, and white. Here is the image used for inspiration: ...

We finished up our week in Leavenworth with a round of disc golf. The highlights of the round was on my approach shot for hole seven and hole nine. I had to anhyzer left handed over the corner of the tennis court fence (very tall cyclone fence). I am still very inconsistent on any special shaped shots like this. However this shot flew high and at a very steep angle were it needed to go. We saw...

I realized over the weekend that I will be in town for the big fall stamp camp event. During lunch there is a card swap. I signed up and then remembered the card swap. I have a surplus of odd sized white cardstock that I've wanted to do something with. This was the perfect opportunity to use it up! I used the stamps and dies from Stampin Up!'s Oh So Succulent bundle. I came up just short of...

After staying at fifteen different Thousand Trails resorts we finally have a clear favorite... Leavenworth RV Campground. It could be the time of year, which is fall and the colors here are spectacular. It is definitely the disc golf course even though we both threw our favorite drivers into the lake and could not recover them. It is so quiet here you can hear a pin drop which is also lovely....

My mom just asked me this today. I am sure anyone who is not retired wonders what do retired people do to fill their day, especially if they travel full time. Don't they get bored?

Since we move to a new area every three weeks, we reserve part of our day to check out where we are staying. It might be a walk or hike on trails in our campground. If there is disc golf or a field nearby we...

For the Creative Cat Crew Color Challenge #26, I used a new stamp set! I bought this set with Copic coloring in mind. It does NOT come with matching dies but I knew that the pillows would be easy to fussy cut and I would be using the cat since I am a cat person and it didn't look to bad to fussy cut. I list the Copic colors below and chose to mat with Real Red and Marina Mist on Whisper White...

I decided that I had PLENTY of cards on hand so to celebrate World Card Making Day, I pulled out cheerful cards to mail to my cardmaking peeps!

He respected my schedule and at 3pm we drove to the tiny town of Plain, Wa and I left my cards in the little silver...

DH Makes A Statement | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I've been blogging our travels since March of this year. Finally just yesterday DH says, I don't like that name. Then this morning my mom was talking about how confusing it is to her to read various blogs with their insider acronyms and names which prevents her from enjoying the storyline. She too doesn't like DH because it is not a term she is used to.

For example she belongs to an...
