Start the day with, “Whee!”  What great advice that is!  It’s the name of the Pure Innocence stamp set with this darling image.

Nothing but fun making this one.  The image was colored with LOTS of Copics and her dress was dotted with a white gel pen.

Some lace, satin ribbon and a single adhesive pearl were added for even more sweetness.

Playing along in three challenges:
2. Papertake Weekly Challenge “Lace & Pearls”
3. Mod Squad Challenge “Summer Colors”

Happy Crafting!

A couple of weekends ago my DH and I were able to see our granddaughters in Vegas and help our youngest one celebrate her 2nd birthday.

The shells on Kira’s birthday card were colored with Copics.  Then Stickles and sequins were added for some fun sparkle.

I made some matching food cards, too, for the fabulous birthday brunch spread.

Kira loves Ariel so her birthday party was all about her favorite mermaid.  Ariel even came to the big event!

And of course the cake kept up the theme!  It was absolutely adorable, and Kira was thrilled.  (The cake:  Tricia-Ann’s Tasty Creations – Las Vegas)

Kira’s card fits perfectly into this week’s Mod Squad Challenge “In the Ocean or On the Sea”!

Life is good.  Happy Crafting!

It’s almost Father’s Day!  Here are a couple of designs that are for three of the special men in my life.

The front card is for my father-in-law.  It will be delivered in person this Sunday.

The Spellbinder’s Labels Two Die was used to emboss around the tractor.  Then, leaving the die in place as a mask, a light blue ink was sponged around the outside.

The card will be playing along in Splitcoaststamper’s Thursday Challenge WT483 to use twine or rope.

The other two cards are for my sons.

It’s been crazy times here at home so crafting has had to be put on the back shelf.  But I was finally able to use some “new” stamps, a punch and embossing folder that had yet seen any action.  YEAH!!

Both card designs are entering the:
“Father’s Day” challenge at The Male Room and
“For the Boys” challenge at Papertake Weekly Challenge.

Hope everyone else gets some crafty time, too!
