Yellowstone Trip


Hello all. I hope you had a pleasant Memorial Day. We headed to Yellowstone National Park over the weekend and I thought it would be fun to share some photos by my husband Bill.


Thanks Linda! This area is known as Pelican Creek. the mountains in the background are on the east shore of Lake Yellowstone. This entire area may be flooded soon as the spring run-off raises the lake level.


This coyote was hunting rodents, and from what I observed, was pretty successful.


May brings bison calves. These ones were born recently and some still had their umbilical cord showing.


If its about 7:30 in the evening, it's nap time!


This Uinta Ground Squirrel was watching out for coyotes at about 8,000 feet on Mt. Washburn.


In the Hayden Valley, this grizzly was digging up food and put on quite a show for everyone.


A herd of bison swam the Yellowstone River. They give quite a shake when they climb up on the shore.


This huge bull bison napped in a meadow. Glad I had a 400mm telephoto lens to get this picture. All the animals are in the process of shedding their Winter coat and they look pretty shabby until Fall when they are all sleek and fat again. 


This beautiful swan and it's mate was swimming in the Firehole River near Old Faithful.


Whenever we visit the Old Faithful area, we always have to visit the Old Faithful Inn. It's said the be the largest log structure in the world. You can see four stories in this picture and it goes up another story or two above that!

Hope you enjoyed the photos and thanks for looking!

Make it in Minutes Monday

Welcome to Make it in Minutes Monday. I thought it would be fun to feature quick and easy cards or projects that take less than 10 minutes to make, but look like you spent more time making them.


I needed a few quick all-occasion cards and I found this image (#79570) on the Silhouette On-line store. All I did was cut it out and glue it to a piece of purple card stock. Super easy! I use my Zig 2 Way Glue Pen for gluing delicate images. I used white Georgia Pacific cardstock from Wal-Mart, set the blade to a 6, and the speed to one. Also I use a relatively new mat and sharp blade when cutting delicate images like this card. My Cameo cut this perfectly!

Hope you are having a wonderful Monday!

Make it in Minutes Monday

Welcome to Make it in Minutes Monday. I thought it would be fun to feature quick and easy cards or projects that take less than 10 minutes to make, but look like you spent more time making them.

Today’s card could not have been easier. I purchased Anna’s Pretty Paintings Card Making Kit from HSN and I love it. Anna’s kits are so fun and I like that I can customize them to make them my own.



Each layer is hand painted and gorgeous. I recently ordered her Minc machine and can’t wait to make a video. In fact, I was able to talk to Anna while she was on HSN demonstrating her new machine. I was nervous, but very excited!

I hope to have a video demonstrating this card kit later this week.

Have a wonderful Monday!
