70th Birthday

My brother-in-law turned 70 yesterday and we celebrated today at the local pub. Great time had by all. Here's the card I made for him. He is an avid golfer and I could have made several different cards but I saw one on Pinterest and it spoke to me so here's my take on it.

Birthday celebrations 60 & 65

Just this past weekend Tom and I eat to two different birthday celebrations. One for my cousins wife who turned 60 and one for a good friend who turned 65. 
The first card's inspiration came from an idea I saw on Pinterest. Ooo just love that site! And the second one I just kind of went with it.
Real scrabble pieces

The inside said 'It's not the years, it's the mileage. HAPPY BIRTHDAY'

February Blues

 Hi Everyone,
Time flies when you're busy, busy, busy! I just don't know where the time goes. Got right up and flew away!!! LOL😆 its been some time since I had a class. I miss it terribly but something seems to always pop up and then I don't get on it like I should. It's like a bad diet! You start, get side tracked, then say f@&# it! I've been keeping up with all the new stuff and want to play more. Easter is around the corner so I have a bunch of cards to make for it.
I will also be decorating the tables and hall fo Easter breakfast again this year so I hope I can come up with some new decorations of sorts. Kind of tires of the old grass and chocolate egg thing in the table centre and a single vase with a flower look. Pinterest here we come!

Maybe something like this? But in Easter colours? Ya, I think that might work.

Easter goodies

All ready for Easter. Had a great time making kiss flowers. I'm sure everyone at church will like them...and the cupcakes too!

I think I saw something on Pinterest similar to this.

Oldie Goldie

Oh my gosh! I remember doing these quite a few years back...2009 if I'm not mistaken. Turns out I had stamped a whole pile of them but never completed...until now! Love how that deep deep purple, Blackberry Bliss works with quite a few. Who doesn't like a blast from the past mixed with the way of today?


Faux Pergamano

Also known as raised velum was this weeks class. Although I didn't have the best stamps to use for illustration, I think they turned out pretty darn goodthough. This was a fun technique and could be used for just about any sentiment. Not too sure about a manly card...really have to put my thinking cap on for designing one of those.. I have been really inspired these last couple of weeks by so much. Hope I don't lose the inspiration! Here are some of the cards I made for class.

For this card I did not burnish the velum. This was a bad stamping job gone bad but I fixed it up a bit.
My lighting sucks!

Watercolour Bokeh

I just found the most wonderful type of background creations for cards. It's called watercolour Bokeh and although it's a it time consuming, I love the outcome. I think I made one in almost every colour. This card I am sending off Stae side for a birthday to a gal I don't even know. I hope she likes it when she gets it. I also taught this in class a couple weeks ago. So much fun!
