Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day everyone! Anyone can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad!  Wish my dad lived closer, but we talk everyday and I'm wishing him a wonderful day. 

Just wanted to post a quick and easy card for Father's Day.

Wanted to show you a close up of the saying.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a great day with your dad!

Cards from the "To Distress or Not" Class

First I would like to thank everyone who came to the class and helped make it such a success!  We created, caught up with news and laughed all afternoon.  What more could we have asked for?  Too bad that Korkie and Jan weren't feeling well and did not make the trip up.  We missed you both!   I also have to say that I missed Jan's cute British accent.  Hope you are feeling better and looking forward to see you soon!

I also want to thank Barbara for teaching and bringing the vintage and distress look to us again.  You really made everyone think outside the box!

Here are the cards we made:
These are the 3 cards with the distressed look.

And these are the non-distressed cards (I guess we can call  them the clean cards).

Next, are pictures of the cards side by side.  We basically used the same design layout and the same supplies, and came up with two different looks!  It was just amazing!

Hope these samples get your creative juices flowing!

Thanks for stopping by!

Make a Wish with Glittery Candles

Els. owner of Elizabeth Crafts has designed and released her new dies and I just got them in.  They are so much fun and here is a card I made for Maria's birthday.

The bow is actually from the "presents" die set, which is a set of different presents, similar to the candles.  This way you can make all different color boxes and layer them on the solid present, or in this case, a solid candle.

And using the glitter really makes this card sparkle!

Thanks for "stamping" by,
