My new friend in Montana that bought my first card ever, has ordered a few more for Birthdays. So I am throwing some together for her to choose from. Here is the first one. I used this little cutie from Whipper Snapper. What better way to spend a warm summer day than taking your kitty for a stroll! lol I love their stamps. I first found the sketch I wanted to use and then got busy. I am loving the stamp set I bought last month of tickets. As you can see I added stickles to the flowers and the ticket and even to the background paper on the front. Gotta love the bling! lol Since easel cards are her favorite, I made this one as an easel.

I have really enjoyed my evenings this week since hubby is visiting his mother in California and am actually getting some craft time in. Yesterday, an old friend stopped by on her way thru Idaho from Arizona. We met for lunch and just visited for a couple hours. It was so good to see her again. It amazes me how God can bring someone into your life and even tho you do not get to see each other or do not really correspond much, the love you share as friends remains forever. I do not think her and I have even emailed each other for almost a year.....never talk on the phone.....well do not really communicate at all until we can meet up. And once we meet up, it is like we were still neighbors..... like so many years ago. I do thank the Lord for the awesome friends he has given me.
Anyway, Just thinking about friends and how much each one means to me, I made this card for a very special lady in my life. I hope she likes it when she receives it. I used one of my newest Mag stamps. I love the color combination of pink and green so went with it. lol You can see I added lots of bling! I sprayed the flowers with Glimmer mist and added stickles to the leaves. I did use a paper doily to follow the sketch but it seems to be lost in the midst of all the flowers. This is the first time I have used my old but never been used MS butterfly punches. Thank you so much for stopping by.

I can't believe what a roll I am on the last couple days! lol I needed to step away from all the guy cards and make at least one girly one. Then it will be on to more boy cards that I have to get done. I love my new Bildmalarna stamp and had to use her right away. I have never used the pearl swirl stickers before so that was a bit stressing for me. I pictured this card covered in flowers before I started with it. Of course my mind always lies to me about what the finished product will look like. lol Anyway, it is what it is and now I am off to another grandson ballgame. Thanks so much for stopping by.

My brother is having surgery tomorrow and I wanted to let him know he is in my thoughts and prayers so I hurriedly threw this card together with the scraps from my Father's Day card. I used another of my new wilderness stamps because my brother loves wildlife and watches the deer everyday on his property. The true colors are kind of faded with the flash....especially on the one deer. I hope this will bring him a bit of cheer when he gets home from the hospital.

Well, it is that time of year when we get the perfect chance to let our dads know just how much they mean to us. I chose the deer stamp as my pop loves hunting and wildlife and all the other junk that goes with being a guy. lol Although is does not show in these pictures, I inked the background behind the deer so there is a sky with clouds and then shrub like coloring on the bottom. I chose to make a step card just because it has been awhile since I have made one and also because I think he will enjoy setting it up for awhile.I chose the verse because I do believe one of the things I am most thankful to God for is the capacity to love. I am also most thankful to pop because even tho he did not "father" me, he loved me and raised me as his own. I hope he has one awesome Father's Day because if there ever was a dad that deserved the best, it is my pop!
Challenges I am entering are:
Paper Play- Father's Day/ Male
Tuesday Throwdown- Animal
Cupcake Craft- things with tails
