Vacation W/TLC Blog Hop

Once again we have tons of freebies for you on this fun blog hop!  The theme of this hop is Travel/Vacation.   You should have gotten here from Hetty's blog.  If not, be sure to start from the beginning over at TLC!!  If you don't you will miss out on a lot of freebies!

Please be sure to leave some love for Paulette for sharing all of her wonderful images with you!

***On a side note...My followers know I've slowed down quite a bit on my card making.  I started a second full-time-ish job.  I'm now driving for Uber.  For those of you who don't know what it is, it is sort of a taxi type service only newer/cleaner cars and it's about half the price of a taxi.  Not everyone has it in their area, however it is world wide!  You just download an app to your phone.  It's pretty cool!  So, since we are giving away stamp freebies, I thought I'd share a code with you so you can get your first ride free (up to $20US dollars)...the code is QYCYRT7AUE

Now back to your regularly scheduled blog hop...  ;)

For my card I chose to make a retirement card that would be great for a man, but would also work for your western ladies!  I went with yellows and browns.  I added gems, brads, hemp twine and a fun boot charm.



Here are the freebies Paulette gave me to share with you today...


Now be sure to hop on over to see what Lisa D has to share with you!

What a great card with the image as a focal pont and the little plains on the paper.

This is a great card and a great idea to use the image as a Super retirement card. Great details on the card.

Karen, your card is gorgeous. Love the bling and boot. Only you would be driving an Uber - you are such an adventurous person. Are you still doing weddings too?
