VSN and new YOUTUBE video!


Hi friends!

I hope you are having a great start to your weekend!

Today is my son-in-law's birthday 

and we're still celebrating :)

I've snuck away to let you know I'm hosting a challenge

 on Splitcoaststampers

for the VSN (Virtual Stamp Night)!

The theme this VSN is Parks and Recreation

and the challenges are all park(ish) related!

My challenge:  *TRAILing off the edge!*

I have a new YouTube video up on my channel

and it's a short one - 

you can see the making of this card here!

Thanks in advance for peeking!

For my paper card, 

                the idea comes from the many hiking trails 

my family and I venture onto both for recreation locally ~

the Everglades and biking trails and mangroves are amazing!

When we vacation, I often map out trails through the 

moutains and hiking passes that gives us fresh, new views.

So, pulling from that, my idea is to take any image

and have it 'trail' off the edge of the card.

Like trees or birds or branches like on mine above.

I used Altenew's aptly named "Under the Cherry Blossom Tree"

and I just love this stamp set! 

Even if you can't play along on SCS, I hope this card inspires you!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Pretty card and a great video. Thanks so much for sharing. Cherry Blossoms are indeem awesome to see. We are fortunate to live about hour or so from Long Wood Gardens, and have been there many times through the trees and Yes, we have seen Cherry Blossoms there. (Probably have photos of them somewhere. I'll have to look we have so many photos of the gardens we have taken through the years.
