Gone For a Bit

Good Morning. Just a short post today. Seems life has taken another turn for hubby and I. We are making a move, so I won't be able to post cards for a bit. Days will be full of packing and planning for what is ahead. We may be on the road in our fifth wheel trailer for a while and I haven't figured out how to make my stamping fit.....there is such a limited amount of space. It will be an adventure for us for sure. Be sure and check back for updates......I know I will miss making and posting cards.

Father's Day

Happy rainy morning to you! I'm not sure there is water anywhere else on the planet with all the rain we have been getting here. I guess it is a good thing in the long run, just doesn't feel much like summer yet. So here is one of the Father's Day cards I have been working on. I'm trying to get better with my sponging, I have a long way to go, I tend to put the ink on too heavily, but I'm WORKIN' on it!....:0)..... Hope you enjoy.

Supplies: Cardstock-Gina K, Stampin' Up!, Ink-Memento-Danube Blue, SU-Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Going Gray, Stamps-Lovely As a Tree-SU, Sentiment-Clear Stamps, Brads-JoAnns
Have a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by. God Bless.

Good Morning. It is overcast and rainy here in Idaho today.......not so bad I guess, I can stay in and stamp! Today's card is my MOJO Monday submission. I made the card using 1 full sheet of Gina K Pure Luxury Ivory cardstock folded in half, so it is larger than most cards I make. It is for my mother-in-law for her birthday in a few weeks. I also added the sentiment on the front of the card (which was not part of the sketch), I just couldn't get used to that big, white space.

Supplies: Cardstock-Gina K, Stampin' Up!, DSP-Stampin' Up!, Stamps- SU, Inkadinkado, Ink-Rose Red-Memento, Koh-i-noor Pencils, OMS, Cuttlebug EF and Scallop Circle Nestibilities-Spellbinders.

Stamp TV Sketch Challenge 15

Good afternoon! It has been a busy day for me, but I saw all the cute cards for this challenge and just had to give it a go! The challenge I'm referring to is over at STAMP TV, be sure and check it out! The card is a bit of an off size, so that was challenging for me. It is an 8x8 piece of cardstock folded in half. I like it now, I'm sure I will use this size more often.

More Fun Little Boys .......

This was such a fun card to make. I was inspired by the card made by Theresa Momber and began searching for other samples on SCS. I found several really nice cards, but none of them used cars/trucks. So this is what I came up with.......I'm pretty happy with how it turned out and the story it tells. I know my grandson will enjoy this because trucks are his thing!

Supplies: Cardstock-Gina K, Stampin' Up! Patterned Paper-DCWV Images-SU-Little Trucks (retired) Cuttlebug Diecuts, Markers, Glitter Pen, Fabric Paint
Thanks for stopping by today! Have an awesome day. God Bless!
