Life is a Journey

Hello Everyone!

Today I am excited to share my first card featuring the newest Pion Design Collection "The World Awaits". This collection is so fun to create with, I couldn't stop myself from adding more and more amazing vintage elements! This is also my very first post for Scrapiniec and I am loving the fact that these two product lines go so well together!

Still sharing some older photos.
A female Cardinal...

A female Sparrow...

A male Cardinal...

I lost track of sweet little Daisy when the white patch disappeared on her face. I'm sure she's still around, I just can't tell her from the other trail friends now. lol

I still see Ginger now and again, but the little gal is hard as heck to capture with the camera!

My best bud Crazy Karen who keeps me smiling every day with beautiful little face of hers!
Karen is actually moulting at the moment and looks a little bit like a hobo, too funny!

Quick survey - has anyone else noticed that the scroll feature on your mouse no longer works in the editing box when writing a post? It works on the side panel in Post settings, but not in the actual writing space???

That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments.

  13. Hi Pamellia,
    This is gorgeous! You have so many fantastic layers of texture and dimension! I LOVE how it all goes together so well~ So many wonderful details which you have such an eye for!!
    Sorry, I haven't been around a lot. All of my spare time this past 6 months has been traveling back and forth home to see my Father who's health is failing and helping with daycare on and off for our 5 grandchildren..busy, busy! Hope to find a little more time for me in the coming months. I really miss my crafting and blogging!
    Have a great weekend my friend~

  14. Wow!! Awesome first post for Scrapiniec Pamellia!! This card is spectacular!! So many elements so beautifully arranged and layered .. Looooove it!!! This is deffo right up my alley and, I must warn you, I am bookmarking this for future reference .. gonna lift this some time .. LOL!! Absolutely stunning card!!
    Fabulous photos as always. Gosh, those cardinals are beautiful. Still, I love the plain little sparrow too .. so cute. Crazy Karen is gorgeous even when she's moulting .. so glad she still comes to call on you.
    Haven't noticed about the scrolling problem but then, I haven't posted for a bit. I actually haven't crafted anything for a couple of weeks. Did a silly thing and fell over in our backyard and broke my wrist. (Such a dummy .. LOL!) Just starting to get back into my craft room but taking it slow as the wrist aches a bit still. Other than that, all is good. Our weather is still quite warm for this time of the year but, I believe, that is about to change and I'll probably will be complaining about the cold soon. LOL!! Have a wonderful weekend Pamellia! hugs xx

  15. OH! Pamellia, so different and so wonderful, you and Pion and Scrapiniec are a match made in heaven, I love the details and how this has all been put together so beautifully.

    Sorry you've not been able to take piccies, BUT it's so good to see these piccies. Have a good weekend and hope Spring comes soon LOL.

  16. Wonderful card! Loving all the cool bits. Awesome photos too, as always. Scrolling is working for me....but it's the next day now so maybe they've fixed the problem.

  17. Hi Pamellia
    A friend of mine travels very often so this would be right up his street.
    Never seen a ginger squirrel before. Do you think its natural or does she visit a salon lol!!!
    Have a great weekend.

  19. Fantastic card, Pamellia! Love that Scrapinec chipboard. I'm glad to see some of the squirrels have returned. Maybe more will follow with warmer weather. The photos are beautiful as always. We had about 9 inches of snow on Wednesday but it disappeared fast with warmer temperatures.

      Amazing card for your first design post for Scrapinec! I love the pieces you've chosen for this; that barbed wire is fabulous; I could see it all grungy and rusty! The papers look great, and I love all your shabby layers. The notebook panel and corrugate are great touches that I adore.

      Your photos look wonderful; especially love the one of Karen. I hope you're having a sunny Sunday! So happy to see your comments on my blog; made my day! Sorry to cut this short, but I'm off to the grocery store! Hugs!

  21. What a beautiful card Pamellia - love all the elements, especially the barbed wire!!
    Your little friends are as beautiful as ever. - love your photography

  22. Faboulas Male Card especially with the nautical theme. With Faboulas embellishments and layering.
    Have a good weekend happy Easter.

  23. Another fabulous card my friend. I love your embellishments and the sentiment - ' Life is a Journey, but only you Hold the Map', it may be corny but I love it. (However, I am still trying to work out how the barbed wire works with such a romantic sentiment. Still loving the card though!)

    How is your weather doing? They are talking about snow here again.

    PS My mouse is scrolling OK.

  24. Wow! How did I manage to miss this? (I have been a little busy and we have had car trouble too!!!) It is one of the most fabulous cards I have seen- so inventive! Hugs,Chrisx
