More Fathers Day

Here's another Fathers Day card I wanted to share with you all. We didn't make this one at card club but we did make something with the same layout. I wanted to make two of the same card for my father and father-in-law so I used a 6x6 basic grey pad and some Kraft cardstock and here's what I came up with. I have always loved basic grey and the smaller paper pads are great for card making. You can try out colors and papers to see which sheets you will use the most and then buy it in the larger form for more card making or scrapbooking. Have a great Monday!!

Happy Fathers Day!!!!!!

I want to wish everyone a Happy Fathers Day! I hope you all have a great time celebrating that man in your life. This card is for my husband from the kiddos. We made this card at card club (thatnks Peggy)and I have been waiting to share it with you until today. The ties at the top are removable and you can write messages on the back so my daughter wrote some sweet notes for her DADDY from her and her brother. I loved this color combo and thought this was just a really cute idea. If you aren't already in a card club you should think about starting one with a group of friends. We only meet every other month and its a great way to get diffferent ideas and a fun time to visit with the girls.

Dawn's color challenge #9

Happy Sunday! Dawns color challenge this week were some easy colors to work with Grass Green, Black and Cream. I've been working with distress inks the last couple of days trying different techniques etc and I thought dawns vintage picture and colors would work well with this technique. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

My first attempt at distress inks

I I have been really into Tim holtz and his designs lately. He has great tutorials on his blog and so I thought I would attempt to make a tag today. It was really easy. A little messy but the effect turned out pretty cool I thought. I would love to hear feedback from you all so don't be shy. Thanks and have a great day!!!

Another thank you card

Good morning everyone. This is another thank you card I made for my daughters female softball coach for the team to sign. I used the same stamp as the male card but a totally different look with this one. I love the large prima flowers. I believe these are called cabana and the paper is from making memories. Hope you all enjoy your Sunday. We are off to church and then to a softball tournament. Thanks for taking the time to look.

Coaches card

Good morning everyone. I thought a would post this quick card that I made for my daughters softball coaches. She has two male coaches and a female manager. This was duplicated for each of the coaches. It is a variation of a card we made at card club on friday evening (thanks Peggy) that was a fathers day card. I tried to use distress ink to daub around to give the card a different feel. The papers are from Basic Greys boxer line,then just a few bottons from my stash and a thank you sentiment from stampin up (kristina werner design) and it was done. Quick but really a nice card. Hope you all have a great day. I will be back in a few days with another card to share with you.

All about me

Good morning everyone. I made this frame last week for my daughters room. This is one of those projects that has taken me forever to do. I had all the supplies but just hadn't sat down to put it together. I loved how it came together and so did my daughter. The M and butterfly are uppercase living rubbed on the actual glass everything else is just various scrapbook supplies from Me and my big ideas (soft spoken), several rubons in my stash and the paper is K and CO. Hope you enjoy your day today.
