Create With TLC Blog Hop

Oh how exciting!  We are having another blog hop at Create With TLC!  Everyone who visits is a winner!  I love blog hops like this!  Don’t you?  The theme for this hop is “May Flowers”.  I don’t know about you, but we are getting the May showers!  For this hop I created a card using the fun freebie you get to take from my blog – isn’t this “sweet”?  🙂

You should have arrived here from Rhonda’s blog.  If not, please start at Create With TLC and find who is starting this party – that way you won’t miss any of the fabulous freebies!

Here is your freebie image – to collect it just left click on it, then make sure it is full-sized.  Once it is full-sized right click and select “save as”

I’m the last stop for this party!  Now be sure to head back to Create With TLC to let Paulette know how much you loved all her freebies and to thank her for her generosity!  🙂

Just Keep On Creating – Anything Goes and Travel Stories – here is my travel story…I don’t do a lot of traveling, but as a kid my parents loved traveling.  I recall one trip to Banff Canada, from Coos Bay, Oregon USA with the tent trailer, my mom, dad, and two older sisters…Well, we stopped to camp, my parents thought the ice box was empty, but…well, it had mayo, tomatoes and other sandwich materials left in it from our trip that day.  There was a bear that came through the camp that night.  It swept the ice box open, got it’s hands/paws on the mayonnaise and managed to open it, licked out the entire contents. (mind you we could only hear what was going on…saw after it was gone the next morning), there were tomatoes tracked all the way out of the camp site with bear paws on them.  That same night two campers in a tent were mauled by a grizzly…presumably the same one that got into our ice box…not a happy story, but one that will never be forgotten…the only other thing I can recall from that trip was my dad being chased by a buffalo and a moose because he got too close attempting to get some good pictures (two separate situations, same trip…guess he must have been a slow learner…).

  1. I came because of the hop. Love your card and laughed at your story! I’m thinking your dad expected the buffalo and moose to act like a salmon. Only problem is there is a size difference. One would be scared by your dad and your dad should have been scared by the other two! 😀 I’m glad the bear was happy with the mayo.

  2. This is gorgeous, I love the soft colour palette and lovely image. Thanks for sharing your card with us over at the Craft-Room Challenge, and good luck.

  16. hi Karen,
    this card is just too sweet, I love the sentiment and the lovely papers you have used. This card is a perfect example that you don’t have to use sweet colours to make a sweet card, hope this makes sense.
