Let's Party......


Well yesterday was my dad's Birthday.
I wanted to make him a fun Birthday card 
using my FAVE stamp set 
I still have not bought the dies to make
this a little easier cutting out....someday. Lol
I did some water coloring on the background
using my distress inks on Tim Holtz water 
color paper.  I had just received my Simon
Says Stamp April card kit and it came with the 
black embossing powder that I used on my 
sentiment. Looks pretty cool in person.
I bought that Memory Box cloud die a few months
ago and I don't think I have ever used it.
I thought it made a Great area to put
the sentiment on.

I am entering my card into 7 challenges:

Marker Pop ~ #91 Critters
7 Kids College Fund ~ #148 Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp ~ Come Rain or Shine
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends ~ #30 Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion ~ #305 Always Anything Goes
Crafting From the Heart ~ #105 Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday ~ #418 To Die For

I thought I would add a picture of the 
Birthday Boy

I think he looks really GREAT for 
turning 69 years old!! The picture
was taken 2 days before his Birthday. 
And that's my oldest daughter, Chelsy.

Thank you very much for stopping by!!

Happy 10th Birthday Brooke.....

Hello my Crafty Friends!!!!!

Well I just celebrated a milestone with
my youngest daughter yesterday!!! Brooke
turned 10 years old!!!!  She had a really 
Great 10th Birthday!!! This year the theme
of her party was Paris.  I don't know why but 
she came up with it all on her own.  At that
point it seemed like there really was a lot of 
Paris theme stuff out!!! I came across this new
to me digital stamp company JuliaSpiri while
surfing Facebook one morning and came across this
digital stamp called Promenade in Paris. It is 
really Perfect as my daughter has had this infatuation
with Afghan Hounds and Paris!! I think for her
5th birthday we found some random picture of an 
Afghan Hound and had a picture birthday cake make
with it!!  She Loved it!!!  Well I am very pleased 
at how this card came out.  It's not my usual style 
and I finally got to play more with the frontage 
that I had bought several months ago.

My daughter LOVES it and that's all that matters!!!

Here are a few pictures from her party:

Brooke's dad made her this Awesome looking
cake.  He is quite the Jack of all Trades from 
floor tiling, plumbing, and baking!!!

Happy 83rd Birthday.....

Hi my Crafty Friends!!!

Recently my father-in-law celebrated 
his 83rd birthday.  I had originally planned
to make this card a shaker card but I 
forgot to put the acetate down first before
I put all the foam mount all along the frame
part of this card.  I didn't want to peel off 
and waste all that foam mount so I just
made it a framed up card.  I think it came out
nice and the colors I used made it a masculine
looking card.  I am just loving these large

Love to Scrap ~ Three's a Crowd
Crafting From the Heart ~ #101 Anything Goes
