Riley off to Vegas

Hi everyone,

I wanted to join in the fun again with another card I made using Riley and Co.'s Riley and Sophie in Las Vegas.  The classic car is from Local King Rubber stamps from right here in North Vancouver. This card is for someone who would love to be in Vegas every year for his birthday, and I can imagine him driving down the strip in this classic car.  I am joining the following challenges:
Pile it on - it moves me #111
Daring Cardmakers - on your travels
Lil Patch of Crafty friends - #36 Anything goes
Love to scrap challenge - #80 Anything goes

Fisherman birthday

Hi Everyone,

So again, it's been awhile since my last post, but not for lack of creating.  I have been working on diaper cake orders.  I haven't made one in a very long time, and just received 5 orders.
Anyways, this card is for a very special young man who loves to go fishing with his Grandpa.  I purchased this image from Bugaboo stamps, and it is just perfect.  I coloured it with mostly Copics, but I have Tria markers in the mix.  I also coloured around the edge of the die cut to give it a bit of a frame.  The sketch is also from the Bugaboo challenge #410.  I am also joining the following challenges:

Happy Easter

Hello everyone,

I hope you all had a special Easter with friends and family.  I made this card for my sweet niece for Easter.  The picket fence is a Martha Stewart punch.  The bunny stickers have been in my stash for so long that I have no idea where they came from.  I coloured the grass with two shades of copic markers and the flowers are from the dollar store.  I am joining the following challenges:
A gem of a challenge #165 - Easter.
Crafty Gals Corner # 64 - Easter or Spring
Moving Along with the Times #16 - In the garden
Inky Chicks #64 - Happy Easter
2 Crafty Girls/Jade's Sparkling Butterflies #15 - Anything goes/die cuts or punches

Thanks for stopping by.

Embossed Spring Tree

Hi everyone,

This card idea is straight from a Jessie Hurley class I took at Making Memories.  We used this stamp in the class, but with a different color combo.  I thought for a St Patrick's day birthday for someone that loves pink, this would be perfect.  The butterflies were punched out of glitter paper and popped up.  The tree and poem stamp is heat embossed with pink, two shades of green, and copper embossing powders.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Your next stamp #34 - colour challenge.
A Gem of a challenge # 164- spring.
Fussy & Fancy Friday #159 - things with wings.
Cute Card Thursday # 416 - Lace or Ribbon
Pile it on #103 - Green & two other colours
Starinmypocket - include embossing

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.  Have a wonderful weekend!

Valentine's treat bag


Hi everyone, 
Again I have been slacking on my blog and I am not proud of that.  I did do a lot of Christmas cards, but never got around to posting them as work has been very busy.  Already we are into February and Valentine's day.  I don't usually do much for Valentine's day, but I had this gift idea and had to try it.  I think it's a great idea for someone that loves to relax in the bathtub with a couple of candles.  And who doesn't like a little treat while your in there.  BTW, the little jar is bath confetti.  The cupcake stamp is from Michael's and is embossed with pink, red, and gold powders.
Blog challenges that I am entering with this project:
The Friday Mashup #242 - We have heart.
Crafting for all seasons challenge - love is in the air
Crafty Calendar Challenge - love is in the air
Cute Card Thursday - Sweet Valentine
Thanks for stopping by and I wish everyone a Happy Valentine's day.

Pizza Birthday 2015

Hi everyone,
This card is for my nephew.  I found this image in my digi's from Dustin Pike, and thought it would be great for a man's card, plus it was pre-coloured which worked well with the fall colours challenge.  I thought the Pizza maker looked a little confused, so I added a message on the inside "Cake?" as if he didn't realize it was suppose to be a birthday cake.  Besides, some of us prefer pizza anyway.  My submission for challenges are:
Southern Girls Challenge: Let's Celebrate
The Paper Shelter: Challenge 223: For the Man in your Life
Craft your passion challenge 283: Anything goes
My time to Craft: challenge 306 Autumnal colours
SweetStamps:  October Anything Goes
Crafting with friends: Challenge #8 Anything goes
That's it for me tonight.  I hope to be back with some Christmas cards shortly, and maybe more birthday cards.  Thanks for stopping by.

Silver Anniversary 2015

Hi Everyone,

I am back with a silver anniversary card.  It's hard to see in the pictures, but the "love" heart is silver foil paper from a set of cards that were on special at Michaels.  I used an embossing folder from Taylored Expressions called sheet music on the pink cardstock.  The music paper is from Authentique the Irresistible Collection.  I cut the hearts using a Sizzix die and hand cut the love heart. The silver anniversary piece is Vellum,but I'm afraid I don't remember from where.  This is only my second anniversary card, and my first one I found on Google when I was trying to get ideas for this one.  I am hoping to make a similar one to this with the pieces that didn't quite work on this one.  It would be nice to have one in my pre-made stash, but with Christmas time fast approaching that may have to wait.
The challenges I am joining are the following:

Dream Valley Challenges - recipe.  My recipe is patterned paper, pink, and faux stitching.
Papertake Weekly Challenges - technique.  Embossing folder.
Sweet Stamps - anything goes.
Crafty Girls Creations - anything goes.

Congratulations to our friends on their 25th.
Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you have a good one!
