Wonder & Joy

Isn't she the cutest? The image is from the set Wonder and Joy from The Angel Company, this set has some other cute images of as well and I'm so looking forward to getting those inked. The card is pretty simple with not a lot extra's added, I didn't want to take away from all the sparkle... okay that's not true... it took me forever to decided on what embellishments to add and after quite some time of pondering I gave up and decide to make it as simple as possible. Embellishments' are always the hardest part for me and it's so discouraging!

Wonder and Joy

Today a group of us went on a 6 mile hike through Williams Canyon, about 3 miles in and 3 miles out. Williams Canyon sits right below the ever popular tourist destination Cave of the Winds and is just North of Manitou Springs. It was a fabulous hike with great views of rock formations on both sides and some interesting caves. We climbed about 1400 feet in elevation but once we made it to the top it was well worth all the huffing and puffing because the view of Pikes Peak and surrounding was unbelievable.
