Penny Black Mid Way Reminder-Baby or ATG











Mid Way Reminder

Anything Goes 
or 
Optional 'BABY' Theme







I tried my hand at a little watercoloring today. It's been a long long time since I dug out my Stampin' Up watercolor crayons.  Now some of you might think this is a hot mess but it was fun to try something different for a change of pace!

This post is a little late as my internet has been a little sketchy late at night. Sawwwrrryyyy!

For today's cards I used the following stamp sets:

Penny Black Saturday Challenge Wet and Wild









Anything Goes 
or 
Optional 'BABY' Theme









Welllll...not exactly a baby themed card, I decided to go with the Anything Goes Theme because I wanted to use this stamp set again while it was summer.

I used a trifold card base from My Scrap Chick and a cool sun file from the Silhouette Store. Colored the littles with copics and used a sentiment from the same Wet and Wild set.

Father's Day Card and Wood Project


Father's Day Projects 2018






I made this card on my wonderful and rare jammie day last week. The pattern is designed by Lettering Delights and was purchased from the Silhouette Store HERE.  I always call my Dad Papa Bear-so this is just perfect! The bear and tree were cut with my Silhouette and the sentiment was print and cut. 






I made this sign for him too.  The chalkboard base is leftover from a past Christmas project I made and worked perfectly for my wooden letters and tools.  I cut everything out with a scroll saw, and then primed and painted them. (I let him choose the colors- Orange is his favorite color)  I used my Silhouette to cut the patterns out of vinyl for this project (Simple Tools).  I used a 'shaky' font for his name because I knew my cutting would be shaky anyway.(smart thinkin'!) This is not as easy as it looks, but I hope to get some time after cherry harvest to get a little practice in!  If you are on instagram check out @sawdustjunkies , @thenorthandpine, @lushlemonco  just to name a few of the  wonderful scroll saw artists!

Thanks for stopping in!

Penny Black June Challenge-Masculine








Midway Inspiration

Anything Goes 
or 
Optional 'Masculine' Theme







Have you all seen the new inner shadow box card video that Jennifer McGuire shared not too long ago?  Well...I had to give it a try!  I had already made this distress oxide background a while back and it was waiting for the right card...so here it is!

Stamps used:

Penny Black Teed Up
and 

Special Thoughts by Penny Black




Unfortunately I did not remember to take a pic of the very simple front, but it had a grass die cut with a little PB mousie running with a birthday candle. Another CAS creation!

Father's Day Fishing Favor Box





Father's Day Favor Box





I made this favor box for one of the Dad's for Father's Day.  I used some Recollections (Michaels) kraft and green cardstock for the main body and some Kaisercraft  Post Card papers for the band. The brim is about 5.5 inches wide and the box inside is about 3 inches wide. It was very easy to put together and fun to decorate with all the little fishing baubles! Now to fill the inside box with treats!






Unhinge the tabs and pull out the box to fill with candy!




I have a fun Father's Day card I made for my Papa Bear coming soon-just need to get a picture. I actually got a jammie day/craft day last week to make these...oh I miss those days!

Thanks for stopping by!

***ANYTHING GOES***

BIRTHDAYS

 Happy Birthday to you all! 


 Today I wanted to make this Twisted Gate Fold Card and add in my cute Gruffie birthday boy! The stamp is named Party Preparations and I have not been able to find a current link for it, but there are plenty of other cute House Mouse Birthday images that would be perfect for our Birthday challenge! It just goes to show you how classic house mouse stamps can be. I first stamped this image over 10 years ago!  

The sentiment is from this sentiment set:



This is how the twisted gatefold looks folded flat.

Bio.
I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with likeminded people.
I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.
This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!
