Happy Father's Day

Here are the latest club cards. Still working on Manly cards. One for Father's Day and one for a Birthday. We played around with tearing for one and watercolor paper and twill tape for the other. We had a fun night!!

We decided to play a little mini golf for Father's Day. We were in Iowa for a family reunion and it was a beautiful weekend.

New catalogs are on there you want one?????

Sock Monkey

Time is running short to add this adorable set to your personal collection. It will be retired the end of June along with many other sets. I'm not sure what the technique is when you stack 3 identical layers of a design, but I thought it turned out fun. If you like paper dolls this is the set for you. There are 3 sets for the Sock Monkey and are so fun to work with.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping.

PS remember to post a comment!!

Working with scraps

I ended up with these scaps after using my Movers and Shapers die. I played around with them awhile and finally taped them down in this design. Some twill tape frayed at both ends and vintage trinkets which match Soft Suede very well, make it suitable for a guy card.

Hope to hear from you,

Fun with Punches

Here is a fun card I made using a variety of punches....11 pucnches to make one card!! It could be made with different colors depending on the brand of tractor.

Guy Cards

I was challenged to make 'guy cards', which I don't do very often. But this stamp set is the one I thought of first. It is Engraved Greetings with Night of Navy and More Mustard cardstock. A little hardware or some shading can spruce them up a bit.
Thanks for stopping!!
PS my icons are updated on the left with the new Last Chance Stamp sets and Accessories

Congratulations cards

I couldn't resist the wise ol' owl for graduation cards this year.
I love punch animals and so do my kids!!
This one was for a Confirmation card. I made the cross using the Dahlia fold,
which is easier than you think.
The bonus with this fold is you get to enjoy both sides of the DSP!!!

Have great day,
