We are "back" from our Thanksgiving travels...I saw the most amazing sight on early Friday morning...we spent Thanksgiving day at our "Lake Huron" home, I was awoken to an annoying screeching and screaming....(I sleep with the slider slightly open to hear the sounds of the waves)...went downstairs to make coffee and looked out at the lake and here sat this big Bald Eagle on a rock in the lake...next thing I saw was a second Bald Eagle swoop by and knock the Eagle off the rock into the water, the eagle jumped back on the rock, only to be knocked off again! Then I saw another eagle fly in and land by an eagle at the shore....they were fighting over a fish.....how I wish I had my camera with me...four Bald Eagles right in front of my house...amazing!

Nothing new to show today, somehow I can't get interested.....yesterday I saw where one of the blogs I follow her 3 year old passed away from a virus..kind of takes the heart out of wanting to do anything constructive.....my heart goes out to the family..I just can't imagine their lost.....there is a digital image you can purchase to help fund a tree at the zoo where Henry loved to go...you can find more about it here if you are interested in helping out.

The card I have for today looks like alot of work, but the trees are scrapbook paper.....and I bet you thought I did all that glittering......the card is as instant as my real tree...somedays you need that!

OCC Challenge....it ends today at 6pm.....I know its hard to tell, but there is a "diamond brad" on the bow....and I know it doesn't look it...but this card actually took me awhile to create for some reason. The ink I used is the new in color this year from SU....one of my favorites of the 6....but I have always loved the chocolate chip ink from SU and the "Soft Suede" works just as nice! The background stamp is also SU, called "Medallion"

I have a project I am doing and need to have about 100 tags made, they have to be somewhat "simple" so here are my first five to get me going! I love making tags, but I really like to pile on the "stuff", so these are a bit plain for me.....but I guess most people throw theirs tags away after use anyhow...ugh...I can hardly stand the thought of that!
