Here's a card I created using some Hero Arts stamps...Starburst and Floral Garden. I'm going to enter this in Moxie Fab World's Shabby and Vintage challenge although I'm not sure if it's shabby and vintage??? I love that style but I think this is as close to shabby and vintage I'll get. ;)

I stamped Starburst on pink (dark and light) cardstock, cut them out in circles and distressed them by rolling the cardstock between my hands and distressing the edges. Added one of my buttons.

I cut leaves free hand out of felt and hand stitched a line through the center.

The sentiment is a SRM sticker.....LOVE LOVE them!

My mom's coming to visit us tomorrow from Canada...we haven't seen each other in 3 YEARS!!!! I don't think I'll be sleeping tonight! ;)
Have a great day!!

materials - cardstock, pattern paper (PTI), stamps (Hero Arts), chalk ink, gems, SRM sticker, felt, dies (Spellbinders, PTI)

I'm busy working on those wedding thank you cards I mentioned already (will be finished on Friday).....I don't think the bride will mind if I do a few sneak peeks! ;) The photo is of me and my husband.....just to give you an idea of how it's going to look. I'm nibbling on his ear! ;)

Making some embellishments using Hero Arts Starburst stamp and my buttons....which by the way I will be adding new buttons to my Etsy shop.

Spray painted these two trays that were previously kitchen is white so I wanted to add some colour. My kitchen stools are this exact same green.

My kids LOVE playing with LEGO's and they built this highly complex bus for their toys...sorry for the bad photo.

we LOVE summer!!

Take care!!

Cards for Grace and Canada Day

I'm sure all of you already know about Jennifer's Cards for Grace card drive. I offered my handmade buttons as one of the prizes.

They look like candy don't they??! I'm offering 50 buttons (which is $20 worth). You can check for more details here.
I will also offer some of my digi stamps to the winner of my buttons if interested. ;)

I'm going to try and submit some cards for publication...I'm always late or it's last minute and submit only 1 or I'm going to try to be more persistant. Still doing those wedding thank you cards...don't get much done daily with the kiddos running around! ;)

And to all my Canadian friends, relatives that live in Canada and the country I grew up in .... snif, snif...

Happy Canada Day!!!!!!!

Have a great day!!
