Howdy..

I am back from our quick trip to Quartzsite, AZ.
What an experience that was. Like I said before I have
 never seen so many RV's in one place. 

I am not a huge fan of camping out in the desert. 
I would rather be at the ocean or up in the mountains were
there are lots trees.  But I finally gave in to the hubby and
did a little trip out to the desert. 



I mean really how many good shots can you get of 
brush and cactus.   Anyway I am linking the above photo to
Texture Tuesday..  I used Kim's new -43 texture at 100%
It made this photo look a little better.  Hee Hee...
Thanks Kim!

Well it's Tuesday which means it's time for 



Our sweet and talented host this week is Charlene.
And the theme is Forever Mine.
All you need to do is use hearts on your project. 




Last week when I was trying to do this project I had the
toughest time. I did a couple of Journal pages with hearts on them
and did not like them at all.  And to tell you the truth I am not to crazy
about the way this turned out. 




I have had this cute little digi stamp on my computer for some time
now.  I really don't even know where I got it. 
But I did have some fun coloring it. 




So you know what to do if you want to get the
details on this challenge, just hop on over to 



Well that's all I have for know. I will be back to show you
some more photos of our trip.  Not that they are that wonderful,
They are photos of the desert for goodness sake.
(Do ya think I have lived in the desert to long) lol..

Wishing you all a happy week.

Till next time. 

Hugs~

Love your card, that digi stamp is delightful and your colouring and paper crafting is a treat.
Your desert shot is very nice - did you have wonderful sunsets?

Lynn Stevens said...

I think your card is darling Linda, Brings some sunshine to the dull days here.
You can always come camping in our desert, a balmy -2 to 0 nearly every day for two weeks now. You may have to keep your heater running full time but the photos with frost on EVERYTHING is beautiful. LOL
Hugs Lynn

Adorable card Linda! Those little love birds are adorable!

Artzy Heart said...

I totally agree with you about seaside preferences over desert scenes--although yours are quite lovely. I think I have to find an online source to help me use my nes Cannon!

Sue Lelli said...

Linda, LOVE your layering and the tiny tag with the twine and your lovebirds on the fence! CUTE card!

Terry said...

The ocean is gorgeous as are the mountains, but there is something about a desert sunset or sunrise that is amazing! Sweet card, my friend! Love those little birdies perched so happily on the fence! Perfect coloring and distressing! Hugs!

Ira Huberts said...

I can NOT see what you don't love about this cutie, Linda! Those birds are just precious, and I adore all the hearts! Then, everything wrapped up in twine just makes it utterly delicious! LOVE it to bits! TFS!

Charlene said...

What an adorable card Linda! I love the stamp and your coloring and distressing cuteness!!!!! Hugs!

Nancy Claeys said...

I could use some desert heat about now. :)

Love that card -- love birdies.

Pride In Photos said...

You just crack me up! I love coming here...always a smile on my face. How much pictures can you take of cactus's.....hehe. Like the saying goes, You could sell snow to an eskimo! NO matter where you are the images will look awesome.

Hey Linda, I'm with you, I'm not a huge fan of the desert either. Maybe because most of Australia IS desert and I see this landscape all the time. I am lucky I live right by the ocean tho. Love your sweet little card. xx

Milagros C. Rivera said...

This is one sweet card Linda, love those adorable birds and the way you colored them!!

Catherine said...

All your colors here are so warm and inviting Linda. It's cold here - very cold. And I could use some of these warm sunshine colors in my world. Beautiful!

Becca said...

You're too hard on yourself Linda, I think it's an adorable card! I'm looking forward to your desert shots...I mean, how am I supposed to experience the desert now if not through your beautiful photography!

Wendy said...

Howdee sweet friend,

Welcome back from empty land! Happy to see you again. Don't be too hard on yourself, I think your card is cute and sweet and the desert photo wonderful with that awesome light. Am looking forward to more of your dry bushes and sand photos ;)

And yes, I too spend waaaay to much time in PS if I'm not careful. It's so much fun to do! Can even make crappy photos look amazing :D (That's why I started using it in the first place.)

Big hug and wonderful day to you!
Wendy

I think your card is just adorable, Linda! Cutie pie image and love all the layers. The polka dots make me smile. :)

Asia King (aka Joanna K) said...

Wow, that must have been an adventure and a half camping in the desert! I can't wait to see the rest of the photos. And you card is really cute. I love that image and I have it too, but no idea where it came from! Enjoy the rest of the week :) Hugs x

Deanna said...

I am not much of a camper, but I definitely would prefer the ocean or the woods over the desert for sure. Love that sweet little card...birds are one of my favorites and these 2 are adorable.
