Walk Softly and Carry A Big Stick

That quote from Teddy Roosevelt just came to mind as I was loading up this picture! This is Blue my BIL's dog and she picked up this stick on our walk today up in Killington, VT. DH and I are just back from a few days visit there.

This is DH and SIL with Blue - walking down the road on the way to Kent Pond. Notice how rutted the road is? It was pretty cold there today - but they have had some thaw and the dirt roads get real messy when it gets warm and all the snow starts to melt.

And this is the half pipe they built at Bear Mountain at Killington for the International Snowboarders Competition that is happening there this weekend. We just missed it (and the thousands of people that will be attending!) leaving today - but it will be on national TV next week if you are into that sport!
It was great being away for a few days but I was happy to be able to get back to stamping tonight! I'm trying to catch up on a few of the challenges over on Split Coast. This card is my use green on your card for the Ways to Use it Challenge and has a bug on it for the Limited Supplies Challenge!The stamps are from the Honey Bees and Honey Bee Sentiments sets from Papertrey Ink and the punched edge was made using the scalloped punch by EK Success.

I'll most likely be back tomorrow with a card for the Inspiration challenge.

Be sure to check back here on Sunday when all of the H&M Stamps Design Team will be doing a blog hop showing you some fun spring crafts!
