I am back in Maryland after visiting my Dad in California. I was happy to spend time with my Dad...we shopped, ate, saw movies and played with the cats. There are three now, my Dad took in a little stray girl kitten who had been hanging out in the back yard. She is wild, but has warmed to my Dad. She even let me get a couple of pets in.
As hubs was hunkering down waiting for the ice storm, I had my toes in the sand at Newport Beach.
My Dad and I attended the BNP Paribas Tennis Tournament in Indian Wells while I visited. It is a spectacular tennis venue with two stadiums and several side courts. That temp shot was at night, during the day it was 90+ degrees; so glad it wasn't me on those courts.
And no trip to California is complete without a stop at In-n-Out Burgers, its a classic.
Now that I am home and unpacked; I took a look at my April birthday list...7 cards need making and I haven't started the Easter cards either. Time to get busy.
First up, for my BIL. I love this embossing folder from Anna Griffin...it is perfect to give an little extra punch and drama to a masculine card. No bling, but some vellum under the sentiment strip, and a few white Nuvo drops for added texture. I was inspired by Michele's last posting.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

During my 2 weeks plus visit to my Dad's home in California, I had hoped to get a little crafting done. I brought a Hero Arts Sentiment set, Inktense Pencils, a set of Alcohol Markers (Colorit-set of 50 with a cool case) and several pre-stamped panels and stamped die cuts from Betty and LaVon.
While here I purchased some Spectrum Noir Watercolor Markers (I am underwhelmed with first use...but that might be the paper will give another shot with my usual paper back home). I have a set of colored pencils that I leave here.

A quick post from my IPad. I was lucky enough to participate in Greta's Hero Arts Scramble last weekend. Luckily among the pre-stamped panels I brought with me to California, I had the Hero Arts Delicate Blossom, which was part of a happy mail pkg from La Von. Thanks so much for stopping by!
