Snowmen Thank You

I'm back with a thank you card I just made.  I told you that I had helped move a friend of mine last week.  Well one time this past winter when I was in her house she has this adorable snowmen door draft dodger and I commented on it when I was there.  I also came home and looked all over the internet and could not find one anywhere.  Last week while we were moving  her she gave that precious draft dodger to me so there was nothing left to do but to make a snowmen thank you card.
I didn't color it as good as I think I could or should have so I put a little more "snow" on it to help hide a couple of boo-boos but now I can't seem to get a good picture of it. I think the snow is making it appear blurry, but this was the best of all the pictures I took.   Trust me it does look a tiny bit better in real life or else I wouldn't have sent it.    There is also Dazzling Diamonds on the blue layer of snowflakes which would not seem to show up in the photo either.  The center part of the snowflakes are actually brads which I really like.  I hope you all have a great Sunday afternoon and evening.  Thanks for stopping by today.  I always love visitors.

I have a friend that just moved.   She lives alone and has a very small family therefore she doesn't receive too many cards so when ever I send her one she puts it up in the living room, so I thought it would be a good idea to match the colors of her room.  I used SU! So Safron and Cherry Cobbler which matches just about perfectly.  
First off let me assure you that I have not been drinking this morning, I just can't take a straight picture, I guess.  LOL  I used Gina K's Dogwood stamp and colored it with Copics. It is backed up with a SB circle die and a Cherry Lynn doily die.    The paper is retired from SU . I thought it looked all right without a sentiment so I just wrote a note inside wishing her the best of luck in her new home.  I'm heading over there now to help put things away so I'm keeping this post short and I hope to get around to visit tonight or tomorrow morning.  Thanks for taking a peek into my little corner of the world.  Appreciated very much.

Happy Father's Day

I got around to making one Father's Day card for my son today.  Now I have to make one for Hubby but knowing me it will be last minute.  Here is the card for my son.

Quite a while ago I removed most of my stamps from their wooden bases to save a ton of room and  I put them in clear cases with a sample stamping and the manufacturer's name but some of them got by me and this is one of those that slipped by so I can't tell you who the stamp is from.  What I can tell you is that I love it and really think it makes for a great masculine card.  Almost every Sunday during the summer months my son and DIL try to get to the beach to relax for a few hours and then have dinner by the ocean so I thought that this was the perfect image for his Father's Day card.  I used Very Vanilla, Basic Grey and a tiny mat of Basic Black all by SU!.  The background paper is from my stash and it was a small piece so I was able to use it up.  For the larger mat I stamped it with the Weathered background stamp by SU! (another Oldie but a Goodie) with Crumb Cake Ink.   I decided to add three gold brads to even things off.  That will do it for me today.  I thank you for paying me a visit and I wish you all a great night and rest of the week.

Masculine Birthday

Hi All, We have a couple of guys in our family with birthdays this month so I got myself back into the craft room to make them cards.  Here is one of them.

I used an old SU! stamp and some paper from my stash.  I pierced one corner and above and below the sentiment which as you can see I did in gold.  It did show up better in person than in this photo.   I wish I done it in white, but it is what it is for now.  I added a few gold stickers and used a SU border punch along the bottom and I was done.  The funny story about this card was that we were talking about deer and the birthday boy just said "I see a lot of deer around here but I've never seen a buck".  Then he opened this card and said "Hey There's my buck".  We all just got a little laugh out of that one.  Wishing you all a great day and thanks for popping in for a short visit.  I haven't been around too much lately.  I've been intensely working outside so that starting this week I can just relax outside and enjoy the yard and gardens.  I will get around to visiting on a more regular basis, I promise.
