Wonderful Moments

Thursday, January 31, 2019
I can't believe I have great-niece getting married already. Life sure seems to be on the fast track, but I bet my sister is saying she can't believe that she has a grand daughter getting married!

Dria is an amazing young lady and we are so happy for her and Jasper.
I think I just might have to use this card for her bridal shower
Stamp Set: WONDERFUL MOMENTS
Cardstock: Whisper White Thick for the card base, regular for the embossed piece, Gold, DELIGHTFULLY  DETAILED LASER-CUT SPECIALTY PAPER 
Fun Stuff: Jewels - pearls, White Organza Ribbon, TUFTED Embossing Folder
I colored in her hair with So Saffron to keep it soft (however, Dria is a beautiful red head), I used Petal Pink and Pear Pizzazz in her bouquet.
Measurements:
Gold: 4 x 5 1/4
Frame and the Whisper White Embossed piece: 3 1/2 x 5
Card Inspired by: Bev

Beautifully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper

Friday, January 25, 2019
Yesterday I showed you a beautiful card using the BEAUTIFULLY DETAILED LASER-CUT SPECIALTY PAPER 
There are so many beautiful designs in this Specialty Paper that I thought I should show you some more cards that I made using this paper.
 For this first card I used the retired BLENDED SEASONS Stamp Set, just in a variety of colors.
 Which color do you like best?
This second card uses the HUMMING ALONG Stamp Set and the HUMMINGBIRD FRAMELITS DIES. Buy the together and save 10% on the bundle price.
These are just 2 of the designs. I have plans to use the remaining 3 designs in the upcoming day days.
This card was inspired by Ginny Harrell.
The sweet thing about this Specialty Paper is that one side is Whisper White and the flip side is Very Vanilla so you can choose which color suits your card best. I used the Whisper White on this one but wished I had used the Very Vanilla to give it a richer feel.

Don't forget that we are still in the first month of SALE A BRATION!

So Hoppy Together

Tuesday, January 22, 2019
Here are a couple fun cards made using the SO HOPPY TOGETHER Stamp Set that is FREE with a qualifying purchase during Sale a Bration.
This first card was inspired by Lisa Hardie on the Demonstrator Planning Place.
All I changed up was to make it a Happy Birthday Card instead of a Happy Valentine Card
It uses the brand new GINGHAM Designer Paper (LOVE IT!) , and the SPARKLE Embossing Folder.
Darling, Darling, Darling!
The HEART EPOXY DROPLETS are SUPER!! They come clear and in 3 sizes and you can color them any color  you want with your STAMPIN' BLENDS MARKERS.
Another SUPER, SUPER, SUPER fun card CASED by Arden Dougan on the Demonstrator Planning Place.
She used these Wobble Springs from Amazon to make the unicycle going "BOING!"
My circle hole for the spring measures approximately 5/8".
Another FREE product used on this card is the black gingham designer paper found in the BOTANICAL BUTTERFLIES DESIGNER PAPER PACK. LOVE this paper too because it has colorful butterflies on one side and black and white on the opposite side. Here...check it out, gorgeous, right!!!

Best Catch

Monday, January 21, 2019
As I am writing this blog post (on Saturday morning) I am sitting in the hospital (again - sigh*). This time with my dad.  While I was vacationing in AZ my hubby had to bring him into ER with severe pain. He was sent home with antibiotics, but we had to bring him back in on Friday after a check up with his physician and this time they kept him and had to have drain put in to drain his gall bladder. Kind of a rough week for this 92 year old dude.
So in honor of my dad I will show you 2 masculine cards that I made to display at my open house.
I just love the BEST CATCH Stamp Set/Bundle. I know Stampin' Up! had a fisherman stamp set years ago - before I was a stamper, so this one was long overdue for me.
My dad was an avid fisherman and hunter. MANY of our meals were made up of his fresh caught fish and game.
This first card is copied from a card that Shelly demonstrated at OnStage in Orlando last November. Of course mine is not exact, but it's good enough for me.  I colored in the fish with my WATERCOLOR PENCILS and a little bit of water with my AQUAPAINTER. The fleck are made using the AQUAPAINTER.
Other product used on this card:
CRACKLE PAINT Stamp Set
BURLAP RIBBON
EVERYDAY LABEL PUNCH (just trim off the outer portion of the long sides - if that makes sense)
This card was made using a sketch challenge and I am pretty happy how it came out
Other product used on this card:
SUBTLE Embossing Folder
BASKETWEAVE Embossing Folder
WATERFRONT Stamp Set
NEUTRALS Designer Paper
FACETED DOTS

Don't forget that we are in the first month of SALE A BRATION!

Sentimental Sunday

Sunday, January 20, 2019
For one week I had the privilege to spend a time together with all 3 of my sisters.
Three of us live here in Michigan, but one lives in Arizona, so we three flew down to Arizona to be together.
My sister and her hubby were amazing hosts and treated us like royalty.
Here we are at Red Rock River Canyon
Our dad told us to take some silly pictures (I guess he knows us pretty well)
 It was a bit chilly when we went up to the Grand Canyon. Our brother-in-law came along as our chauffeur and camera man so that we could get photos of all of us together.
This cute little snowman made us chuckle with his "Life is Cool" note
We played a lot of games - SO FUN!
We watched several movies - very relaxing!
We made amazing meals together.
I can't believe that it will be MONTHS before we are all together again.

We are all so thankful that we all get along and have an amazing bond. We "get" each other and it's a testament of how our parents raised us to love one another.
What a great time!

It took a bit to get back into the swing of things back at home, but I am so thankful again to have a loving home to come back to.  Lucy and Katy must have missed me because they would not leave my side when I got home.  And talk about hyper!! WOW!  How I missed those pups and my hubby.
Thanks for stopping by!
