Happy Fathers Day

Is it just me or is it harder to create cards for men? Everytime I make one it just never seems complete. I guess it must be because I am some what of an embellishment junkie and flowers and bling just don't belong here LOL!Paper for this one is from Basic Grey and the stamps are PB critter party. Thanks for stopping by-Tania

Another try at this one.

I liked the layout of the red card I posted last week so much that I thought that I would try it again with a different colour combo. This is also the card I made some kits of to give to my bestest scrap buds at the retreat, I hope that you had fun making them girls...Thanks for stopping by-Tania

A Beary Cute PB B-Day card!

First off I have to say I just had the most wonderful time at the Crazy Croppers retreat weekend at Green Bay in Westbank it was definately a great "girls" weekend away and the food was fabulous. Time spend on the beach with the summer weather made it just like a resort stay. So sad that its all over though.

Had to Play with another new Penny Black set this one is called Teddy and company. The patterned paper for this is from Cosmo Cricket called Honey Pie: Ella. I created the sky and ground background using a recent tutorial on split coast stampers I however did not have the non stick craft sheet so I just used a piece of acetate and I used glossy card stock instead of regular cardstock. I just took a green ink pad(certainly celery) and a blue ink pad (soft sky) and swiped them onto the acetate then spritzed on water and placed the glossy Card glossy side down onto the mixture. I then repeated this about three times to get the effect making sure the cardstock dried in between.

The images are coloured with water colour pencils and the bear is popped up with foam tape. Thanks for stopping by.-Tania
