Male Type Cards

 With Fathers day coming up fast,  I thought I would do a couple of cards for the male's in our life's. 

Materials Bo Bunny paper, some brads, Vintage Photo TH Distress Ink and border punches.
Also on the Car card I followed one of Cheri's Sketch for her May's Challenge.
I made the train track using the picket fence from QK.., other shapes are all QK or Spellbinder dies.
Stop by the store and take a look. I also took  in the ship card which I posted a few days ago (scroll down to see)
Edit : Sorry if you read this earlier I was half asleep writing it last night.  (Note to self do postings earlier in evening so you don't make so many errors.)
Thanks for looking.  Have a great day.  Take Care

A Quick Card

I have not been able to get crafty this past couple of weeks so tonight I decided had to get myself going.
Here is a quick card I did with a ship that is in a nice set of stamps by Technique Tuesday available at CA. 
I really like this set as it has lots of male type stuff.  Watch for more in the future.  
Anyway here is what I did. 
I used the wave die from QK.  The Happy Birthday stamp is one I have had for some time again from CA.
Hope you enjoy I am sure there will be more cards coming from this set seeing as how fathers day is fast approaching. 
Take Care and thanks for looking.

Spring Prom

Well today is pretty special for me.  Today my oldest grandson's  Brandon and Colton have their grade 12 Spring Prom and this grandma is going to be there (in Hinton Alberta).   I have done some Prom cards for them and their girls.  I had so much fun doing Girl cards, of coarse I am pleased with the idea I came up with for the boys as well.
So here are the cards I did for them.  I will try and put some pictures up next week of the couples.

Well thanks for looking.  Take Care All.

Happy Birthday BARB

Well you folks have seen cards done by Barb on my blog from time to time.  Today is her birthday and I wanted to wish her a very special day for a VERY SPECIAL lady. 

I ashamed to say I did not get a card done for her.  I have been so busy getting all the cards I needed done for May,  I sort of put her's to the side. Thinking I would get some great idea for hers and it would just fall together.  Well it didn't I am really sorry Barb so I hope this little box I did will fill the gap.  I will deliver it to her tonight on my way home.  I don't think I will wake her up this morning delivering it to her.    However Barb if you are in town and want to stop by the office I will have it there for you or else will deliver on my way home.

I guess I should let a few that don't know Barb is my friend, next door neighbour and crafting buddy.  We have a great time together.  Well must get ready for work and get out the door. 

Have a great day Barb......   Take Care and thanks all for looking.

Mays Stamp of the Month at Creative Accents

Good Day all hope everyone is looking forward to May as much as I am.  This month I am the Designer to help with the Stamp of the Month at our local Craft Store Creative Accents.  I just love the stamp Tara has chosen from  Magenta and we used  Bo Bunny  The Gabriella Collection.

Here are the two cards I have done with it so far.  I do believe I will be getting a lot of stamping done with this one.  Hopefully you all will to.

This first card I used a Cheri Sketch Stamped the Dragonfly with Brown Magenta Ink and then used Glitter Ritz over it and the Happy  Anniversary. 

This second card Dragon Fly is stamped in Green Magenta Ink, added some color with Copic's , Used my glimmer gel pen and put silver on the wings (picture doesn't show this well) then did Glossy Accents over the whole dragon fly.  Added a little ribbon and stamped in the nice little area already on the Bo Bunny paper. How simple can you get. 

As I say a very versatile little stamp.  I can see getting lots of use out of this one.  Would make a lovely mothers day card as well.

Hope you all have a great day and thanks for stopping by.  Take Care and please come again.  Also be sure to check out Creative Accents  and see what they have done with this stamp.
