CARLA's Birthday Blog Hop


Well it's Carla's Birthday  (actually July 1 is) we decided we would try and surprise her and do it a day early.

The Start was at Cheri's  But she has been sick and now blogger has refused to let her in. So Sarah's  is the start.   I have listed all at the bottom of this post so if you get lost just hop on back.  From here you to to Chris's

So here is my card and be sure to scroll on down and see Barb's card as well.

Now Carla does beautiful cards and coloring, so I did  not go that root I decided to do something I have been thinking about for some time.So here it is CARLA  Hope you have a great Birthday.

Yes a pop up card....  There is a side view and top view for you.  Carla your card should be at CA for you to pick up after lunch.  If you are out and about before then and want to pick it up from me you know where to find me.  Barb's card will get to you some time soon I know (sorry I was suppose to pick it up last night)

Now Barb's card....
I love what Barb has done with the flowers, Carla is a cat lady so this great.

Here is the order of the hop.
1.Cheri  is having blogger problems and it won't let her sign in .(she is also sick so can't go anywhere else to do this)  I am sure she will be posting as soon as she can.
3.Janet's and Barb's ( that's Here)
7.Tara's and Julie's
Thanks for looking and please leave some Birthday wishes for Carla along the way.
Her blog address is Carla's if you want to hop on over there and let her know as well.

Take Care and Thanks for Stopping By.

Stampede Time and Using up some Scrap

With the Famous Williams Lake Stampede almost here I did this card up a little while back.  It has been on display at Creative Accents if anyone want to see it in person.  
I have paper pieced the boots, used a line stamp to do an out line around two layers, used peel and stick letters for the howdy, spellbinders label to stick them to and an little twine around the edge to add a little.  It is a very quick and easy card to do but I like how it turned out.  All items are available at Creative Accents.

This second card I did is also very quick and simple I used up some of my scrap ( you know those 1 inch pieces that you get when you trim up paper for something)  I have woven the pieces together then used a sewing border stamp to do the stitching (you can do it by hand with a pen and ruler if need be)  Simple saying and you are done.    I am doing a set of quilting type cards for a friend who is a great quilter. 
Well I hope you all have a great day.  It is raining again here so I think I will be spending a few hours in my craft room. 
Take care all and have a great day.  Thank you for stopping by.

Fathers Day Card

Fathers day is next Sunday so I decided to share this card I made for my dad with you all.
What does not show in the picture is that the white circles look like golf balls.  I did this by cutting a small  circle then running it through an embossing folder with large dots.  Colored with Copic's.
Well all for now will be back hopefully later today with some cards I did at a crop yesterday.  Sure was a good time and I am so tired this morning.
Thanks for looking have a great day all.  Take Care

Decided to enter this card in stamptacularsundaychallenge

Happy Birthday Julie I know you are going to have a Great Day

Over at Creative Accents  the DT is doing a blog hop for her.  If you did not come from Creative Accents Site  please be sure to check it out that is the start of the hop. I hope you all enjoy and be sure to wish Julie many more.  This is done in large print for Julie who is having a wee bit of trouble seeing right now.  Next week we hope it will be a lot better for her.  
Here are two cards she will be getting today Barb's .

 Barb has been coloring with her Copic's as you can see.  Three of the flowers and two butterflies are 3D.  Really nicely done Barb.

Here is my card that has been running around in mind for some time (so it was time to get it out of there) and I think it  suit's Julie and  the inside.
 I may even stop in one day soon to the store and have tea with her so she doesn't have to pretend.  You could stop by as well and wish her the best. ( I hear a roomer she may even get her birthday off but stop by anyway, Tanya will be their to help you)  Next stop on the hop is Sarah's Blog   I wonder what wonderful card she has for Julie.

You can leave birthday wishes for Julie at  CREATIVE ACCENTS sight. or on Facebook

Here are the rest of the DT sites in case you get lost along the way.  Take Care

Happy Birthday Dave King

My nieces other half, is having a birthday today so I had to make him a special card to celibate. ( I hope after this we are still invited to the wedding this summer.)  Now a little explaining is needed I asked Aimee what Dave is interested in besides Hockey.  Her answer was he loves dogs (they have a great dane), plays the drums, likes working in the garden and is a music drama teacher ---Oh ya his last name is King.  So I could not resist  doing this card.

Happy Birthday Dave You have a great day.  
 I am thinking you really got a good guy there Aimee.
For those that are interested used papers from my stash sorry don't know where from/ the drum set is from Silhouette (could not believe it when I looked up drums) ribbon was from CA
Saying is from Cornish Heritage Farms. (chuckle every time I read the sentiment)  

Thanks for Looking and if you have time leave a comment wishing Dave a great birthday he is a really great guy who is marring one fantastic girl.
