So this is the image I received FREE for completing last months monthly challenge at From the Heart Stamps. I did not need another Father’s Day so I decided to make a birthday card.

Super Bird Balloons

And I thought his hand was perfect for holding balloons. But while I was making this card I had an ideal to make another version so that is why there are 2 cards that are similar but different!

Super Bird Stars

While making the balloon card I had an ideal to make a 4th of July card with this image and that is how this card was born. I’m still going to keep it a birthday card because of the paper I used it still doesn’t shout 4th of July to me…..that just means there might be a 3rd card with this image! I liked the stars to give it more of a super hero birthday feel.

Tool Time Perfect For Fathers Day

2 Comments

My Father-in-law in an amazing wood worker. He made us Jewelry box that is Amazing and most the furniture in his house is made by him. His back doesn’t allow him to do much anymore but when he does I am in awe of his creations. This runs in the family as my husband is also good in making things. Now I just have to figure out how to keep my garage but give my husband a creative space! So when I saw Tool Time at Diane’s Daydream Designs I knew they would make the perfect Father’s Day card.

Doodle Pantry Rocks Fathers Day Cards

8 Comments

This year Doodle Pantry seemed to have the images that were being requested for Father’s Day. So I have made several Father’s Day Cards with Doodle Pantry Images…Thanks Laurie for having such awesome images!

Crazy Uncle

Crazy Uncle Inside

OMG!! I love love how this came out! This is one of my favorite cards I have made.

A friend at work has a son on the school fishing team. Her husband and another man help the coach. The boys call them the crazy uncles so she wanted a card for them. I showed her the awesome images from Doodle Pantry and she asked that the fish be on the outside and the reel on the inside. She wanted “crazy uncle” on the card. So I called up my bestest friend who rocks sentiments and told her what was requested. She came up with this saying….she so needs to apply for Hallmark!!

The sketch came from Tuesday Morning Sketches #253….I just flipped it so it looks like the fish is jumping for a hook (my friends ideal!). My husband wanted the bobber to look real with the two colors instead of a solid color…I just made it orange instead of red! So glad he requested it cause I love it! The bubbles came because I was going to do a punched border instead of the orange strips but didn’t like it. I had all these circles laying around and love the look it gave it! I cut out a 2nd fish and popped it up so it really looks like it is jumping out of the water.

Samples for Scrapbook.com challenges

5 Comments

So I’m hosting 2 card challenges at Scrapbook.com this month for Karen who is going on VACATION for the WHOLE month (sooo jealous!!). She is amazing and usually has all the challenges done and post them as samples. Well, I’m not that good so I will play along with everyone else this month. But here are 3 samples I did get done so far.

Daisy Happy Birthday

I originally planned on using this beautiful bouquet daisy digital stamp from Diane’s Daydream Designs for one of the May challenges but I just couldn’t get the card to work. So I saw this sketch and tried it which I’m so glad I did because I LOVE IT!!

CHALLENGES:

1) June Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Sketch # 2 – Originally came from Scrappy Sketches #35-13

2) Seize the Birthday Challenge – Make a birthday card and use the topping if you want (optional) – Tags. I chose not to do the topping unless you count the “Happy Birthday” saying as a tag.

Inside:

Happy Birthday

to a lovely young woman;

full of grace, beauty,

spirit and fire.

I made this card for a guy at church who wanted it for his Granddaughter’s 17 or 18th birthday (He wasn’t sure but it was one of those). She likes horses so I thought Carousel Horse 1 from Doodle Pantry was perfect.

CHALLENGES:

1) June Card Sketches @ Scrapbook.com – Sketch #5 – Originally from Tuesday Morning Sketches #217

2) Seize the Birthday Challenge – Make a birthday card and use the topping if you want (optional) – Tags. I chose not to do the topping.

Panda with Balloons

When I saw May Digi of the Month, It’s Not a Tie,  at Deedee’s Digi I knew that I tie wouldn’t work for my father-in-law so I got to thinking! I kept seeing the Panda holding balloons so I wrote Deedee and asked permission to remove the tie from his hand. Deedee agreed that my wonderful husband could work his magic in Adobe and take the tie away. I still wasn’t sure what it was going to look like except I wanted balloons. Well, the inspiration photo this month for the June Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com inspired this card. The photo is a little girl in a red polka dot dress holding a bouquet of red balloons. I embossed the red paper with dots to get the feel of the red polka dot dress. I dragged out an older sketch, The deconstructed Sketch #46, for this card.

CHALLENGES:

1) June Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Photo Inspiration Category – use the photo as your inspiration

2) Deedee’s Digi of the Month Challenge – Use May’s Stamp of the Month and you will get June’s Digi of the Month FREE!
