A Special LSC Birthday Blog Hop

Ya! Your card will likely be late, what of it?! I'm Kidding (just not on the late part)

This is actually a Stampin Up Rub on and I just cut it out to make the shape of the card. I also cut all the pieces of the rub on apart and added them all separately so that I could put the text on white and cut it out. After I was done cutting I popped it up with dimensionals.

And here is the view from down under!

Now because this is a Special Edition of the Loonie Stampers Challenge, Char had a fabulous idea to have some of our regular players join us in wishing Regan a happy birthday. So in true Blog Hop Spirit....START HOPPING!!

Something Different

at least it is for me. I would normally never put these colors together but I found the ribbon at M's and thought it looked nice. SO what the heck, it "fell" into my cart and finally MONTHS later I decided to try it. I likes it!

See you all tomorrow for an EXTRA SUPER DUPER AWESOME LSC!!!

Pool Play

I just wanted to share some great pictures my friend Tanis took of my children while she baby sat them last week. I am hoping to do some scrapping with these soon.

This is McKenzie floating along with Dora

This is Tessa (left) and My Oldest Daughter McKayla.
They said they were "Jus Chllin"

In this one they are a little less chillin and a little more splashin

McKenze and Caeden relaxing in the kiddie pool

McKenzie looks like she is peeing....haha

Practising her paddling!

McKayla resting on Dora (more like drowning her)

This is the face McKenzie makes when it is time to get out of the pool. Sometimes if looks could kill, she would have dead in seconds. LOL

...And last but not least McKenzie smiling again in the warmth of her towel!!

Thanks for stopping in today. Hopefully I will be back soon with something a
little more crafty for you!

Loonie Stampers Challenge #50

Well I am a little late as I finished my card early and then forgot to schedule my post. I still had it as a draft. Oops! Anyway, this week was my selection and I really had fun with this one. It is the first card I have had the pleasure of making since I was working outside the house. (normally I do web sites at home) I have to say, I prefer staying home...LOL

First I used silver pigment to stamp dots on my card base, then I made the focal piece. I stamped text words using my PTI set. Over top of the text I silver embossed my PTI flourishes, inked the edges and then distressed it.

Last I added the ribbon, pin and the hardware with the sentiment and tadaaa!!

Thanks for coming to visit me today and don't forget to see what the other crazy.....err mean Loonie girls made!!
