Masculine Birthday Card

Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend.  I know mine was an action packed weekend..... My family and friends put on a surprise birthday party for me and wow....... what a time.  I want to thank everyone for the work in organizing it and all the wonderful gifts.  I couldn't have been more thrilled ...... It definitely was a "Royal" event.

This was a quick birthday card stamped in versafine black ink with the centre dragonfly coloured with glittery pen to make that pop of colour.  The background was shaded with blue and cream inks and  cut out using my nesties and layered on basic grey card stock.  Added three grommets for that masculine look and complete.

Fall Back!

Hope everyone remembered to turn back the clocks 1 hour.  Got to love that extra hour in the day to get things done.......  Last night we attended a VIP evening to raise money for the Children's Treatment Foundation.  Whoot Whoot........... totally successful with an amazing amount of money raised.  Stephanie and Dale, Peter and Veronica you guys rock!  Needless to say the entire evening ROCKED OUT!!!  Coyote Ugly has nothing on us gals!

Here is a card I made for friends who celebrated their 25th Anniversary.  Congratulations Doug and Andrea and many many more years to come.  Another one of those simply elegant designs I love to make.  White base with a layer of shimmery silver then a cuttlebug embossed layer where I added silver gems, silver #25 and for the finishing touch a most elegant shimmery wide silver ribbon.

Fall Weddings

Hello Folks..........there is nothing like fall weddings.  A long time friend's daughter was planning her wedding and asked me to make "Special" Thank You cards for her bridesmaids, Maid of Honour and a "Very Special Mother".  Needless to say I was thrilled to be asked and wanted to make simple yet elegant cards for Sara!

The base of the card I used swiss dot cuttlebug folder, added silk ribbon in burnt orange which was the colours of the bridesmaids dresses, stamped Thank You then cut out with my nesties, doubled layered the flower then spritz it with glitter mist and added a burnt orange gem to the centre and version of simply elegant for Sara!

This was the card I created for the Very Special Mother.  Once again used the swiss dot cuttlebug folder for the background, layered on burnt orange card stock, added the double layered flower but this time added an elegant soft burnt orange pearl for the centre then for that little extra sparkle couldn't resist adding decorative clear gems accenting the flower. The "Thanks So Much"verse was stamped with versa mark and embossed then punch out using my heart nesties.

Autumn is one of my favourite times of year with the amazing colours of reds, yellows, and orange trees.  The air is fresh a bit cool but when the sun is shining it just warms the soul.  Yesterday was a great day to do some yard work ......planted a few mums, emptied flower pots and trimmed bushes and trees. 

Coloured this Stamping Bella image with copics and prisma pencils, layered using my nesties on fall papers.  When I was browsing at my favourite local stamping store I seen this EK leaf punch and HAD to have it....what a perfect way to add detail to your papers and embellish with the leaves that are punched out.

No Rain Today

Ahhh........... "No Rain Today"  Here in southwestern Ontario we have had about 13 days of rain...... wet soggy....uggh............However today and according to the weather man the remainder of the week is suppose to be sunny and low 70's.  Gotta luv that forecast especially with the Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend.  Whoot Whoot!

This card was coloured using copics and pencils, cut out using spellbinders all layered on lime green, and striped dp.  Used my EK punch to dress up the right side then added some green baubles.  You can't really see but used crystal effects on the boots and the rain drop and do I need to say........ no card is complete without glitter LOL which I added to the umbrella.  Too cute!

Pop It Up

Hello is a Birthday card I created for the Stamping Bella "Pop it Up" challenge.  Fishabella was coloured using copics and prisma pencils then cut out using my nesties "popped up" and layered on some dp, royal blue and shimmery yellow papers.   Thought it needed something other than a worm at the end of the fishing rod so added a 37 representing the age of the birthday recipient.  As usual I can not complete a card without some glitter so added some stickles to Bella's short outfit.

There is nothing better than getting together with some old friends talking about our early years together.  Good times and a ton of laughs...........  Attended my girlfriend of 45 years, daughters Stag and Doe last night.  Man oh man I was laughing so hard I was crying.... my sides and cheeks still hurt. Her brothers were there as well and we got talking about the days when her parents went on vacation for 6 weeks.  To say the least we didn't attend much high school during that period but we played a lot of "Indian" (drinking game), food fights and GI Joe.  Every weekend we were up to something.

This card was made for my Pister #1 who looked after little Oliver our new dashound while we were on vacation.  This stamp is from Stamping Bella which was coloured using copics and pencils then cut out using my nesties.  The rich colours used was a burnt orange with brown polka dot dp. Used Martha Stewart butterfly punch, added some yellow/gold gems, burnt orange organza ribbon and of course glitter to the flowers.
