Have a purr-fect day.

A wonderful person gave me the cat stamp on Monday and this week I have slowly found time to have a play.  I have made the cat to look just like my beautiful darling 'Bentley'  who passed away a few years ago.  I still miss him very much even though I still have Muzzy.  I have also used the Lawn Fawn dies for the background.  Putting this in the Critters Galore challenge from Lawnscaping.

Happy Summer tag

My kids and I made little tags to keep them entertained.  Unfortunately they both managed to destroy their tags before I got a photo of them.  We had fun though, and that was the purpose.   I stamped the watermelon from Lawn Fawn and coloured it in using Tim Holtz distress markers.   The background watermelons are embossed with a sparkly embossing powder.   The photo doesn't show it very well.  And I embossed the words on the tag too.  I am entering it into the Lawnscaping challenge - EMBOSSING

Congrats Engagement Card

I made this for a friend's son whose engagement party is this weekend.   I was so excited to get the stamps yesterday so I could try out this idea.  For the ring I used a "screw eye" that you put into the wall to hang things on and cut the end off. A whole packet from the dollar shop only cost $1.50.  I couldn't find any cheap earrings so this worked.  Had so much fun.  The hearts and word is embossed. And used the dies to cut the elephant's out.  I am totally into Lawn Fawn at the moment.  Will put this in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - die crazy.  And since I have used Lawn Fawn I hope to put it in the Lawnscaping challenge -Distress Mania.  I used Tim Holtz distress markers (hope that is what they mean).  The link to Lawnscaping is  Oh I hope that works.  I don't know how to do the link any other way.

Get better!

I made this card for my sister-in-law who managed to snap a tendon in her leg while at the gym.  I am putting it in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - Die Crazy.  I cut all those band-aids out using the Lawn Fawn stamp and die set since Gail has a very big band-aid on. Plaster now she has had it operated on. And I had to put googly eyes on one band-aid.  I aimed to make it as colorful as could be so it's nice and cheery.

So pretty Emmy

This is based on a Pagemaps sketch.   I feel so out of practice since not having much time to scrap.  Pagemaps are a great base to get started on a page.  I followed it fairly closely and throughly enjoyed doing this page.

The other Feather card

I can't work out how to put the cards in the same blog page but separate entries so I am just putting this card in another blog page.  Got to much housework to do to fight with my computer.  Hope it works. (It's for Simon Say's Stamp Monday Challenge)

Lawn Fawn feather cards

I finally bought a set of Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.  Made the feathers then put them aside for a few weeks before getting back to them.  I had so much fun playing with them and splurged on another set from Lawn Fawn.  I did the pink one first and used MME paper and some lace.  I also put glitter on the feathers.   The Blue one has Gossamer Blue paper.  I tried to mix my blue and green embossing powders to match the feathers.   I'm happy with it.  A bit splotchy but ok. I am putting both cards in the Simon Says Monday challenge - wings.
