Happy Fathers Day!!

HI All,

This posting is a little late... but the cards were made & delivered on time ;} and that's what counts.

So...this year I decided to challenge myself to make a masculine Fathers Day seems I'm new at this SU! thingy I figured I would try and put something together. Well... the night rolls on...and I'm 'playing & playing' but nothing has come to mind was extremely hard especially seems I don't own any fathers day/'manly 'stamps. So I finally gave in... and copied a design from one of my fav SU! ladies - Mary Fish! (did I tell you she emailed me last week after I made a comment on her blog) what a sweetie!!! I was so happy!! hubby thought it was funny that I was so excited after getting a simple email reply back...she's a blog-star!!!!! Hello????

Anyway... back to the cards.....This is the same design as Mary's I just changed the colours to my fav colour - riding hood red! (sadly now retired :{) I made this for my husband who is a super fab dad... I love seeing him play with our little gal...and she is truely a daddy's girl.

This 2nd card was made for my dad... I love Mary's idea of decorating the inside I did. You probably can't see from the photo but I added some dd glitter and also come crystal effects to the centre of the circle.

Stamps: Circle Circus & Teeny Tiny Wishes - (both new SS - July 1st 2009)
CS: Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla, Basic Grey, Basic Black
Ink: Black & Riding Hood Red
Extras: Crystal Effects, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Silver Brads, Firestone Square brad, 2way glue, Stampin Dimensionals

Kim Werner Colour Inspiration #54

So... I finally was able to whip together this little design/card tonight..... seems I really wanted to enter another Kim Werner Colour challenge. I've had the intentions to do one... but just not the time. Between looking after the babe, housework ;{ and appts I've not been able to sit in my crafting spot.

Anyway... here's my entry... the colours are teal, sky blue, pumpkin, green galore & white.... the glitter on the circles is orange...even though it looks a little red from the lighting. I suppose I should of played around with it before I uploaded the photo... but I wanted to submit before the deadline. I was cutting it close to the wire. My inspiration was from the actual photo that was submitted. I love I tried to mimic the cool spots. I was debating between orange or dd glitter...seems I always need to add bling. Hmm... maybe dd would of been easier to see better.

I'll blog more later...

It took me a few trys to make the cute bow..but I finally got it right. Not sure if you can see it...but each cherry has a glazed 3D look too it... I used the Stampin Up's Crystal Effects product....let it dry and boom....done!. If you want to learn how to make cards like me ;}
