Stockholm Maine 2014 vacation!

We just got back from vacationing on Madawaska Lake in Northern Maine!  The weather was just perfect!    The photo above was the view from our camp that we rented for 1 week!   It was the first time we rented this camp and it was just right for Tom and I and my sister and her husband and my Mom!

My brother in law, Russ, used the kayak one afternoon and then my sister went with him in the paddle boat another afternoon.   The lake was calm and looked like glass for most of our stay!  We all played lots of golf at Limestone and Caribou Golf courses.  It was great to spend so much time outside!

Here are a few shots from out travels around Stockholm, Maine.  It is so beautiful at the lake!  The countryside is beautiful too!  It was really tough to leave!

We saw geese every morning!

Yup, lots of Potato fields

If not potato then grain! So beautiful!
My sister and I took some craft projects with us to work on when we could.  There was a great area just off the kitchen that gave us plenty of space to work!  I am working on another Slide N Glide card that I hope to have ready soon.  It involves lots of cats!    I loved our stay in Northern Maine but it is always nice to come home! 

Until next year!

Care Bear Slide N Glide Card

I made this card for our daughter, Emily's shower! Emily and Rob are having a baby in September! We are so excited!   I love baby showers!  Her shower was so much fun!

Emily used to collect Care Bears when she was little.  I thought this card might be fun to make!  I saw these little bears on Pinterest and decided to recreate them!

I used my SU slot punch to create the opening to make two of the bears stand up.  This gives the card the 3D effect.  I recently made a birthday card for my sister, Rochelle, using the Slide N Glide technique.  Her card had Slide but no Glide.  But I did use the technique below to give it a 3D effect.  See the video below to see how I did this technique:
