Fire up the Grill

Hello - As summer is coming to an end I decided to pull out barbeque Tilda - I bought her last year and I may have used her once if that and I really think she is cute so I made this card.  The barbeque is a die cut from Memory Box which I thought complemented this Tilda perfectly!  I haven't done much coloring at all in the past 6 months as I was so busy preparing for my son's wedding.  Now one month after the wedding I am finally able to spend more time in my craft room - I am so happy about that - as soon as I started coloring again - it just felt so right!  I love to sit and color - it is very relaxing for me.  This card was made with some older Bo Bunny paper that I had in my paper stash as well.  I thank you for stopping to visit and if you are Canadian I hope you really enjoy the labour day weekend coming up.  Yes I know today is only Monday but before we know it - the weekend will be here - hoping for some more great summer weather too!

Wedding Wishes

Hello - wow it has been a very long time since my last post but I have been so very busy with wedding stuff.  My son and his beautiful fiancĂ© were married on July 27th and it was the perfect wedding - everything was so beautiful.  Now that the wedding is over I will be able to get more time back in my craft room and I am happy about that.  I did make this card for them for their wedding.  I used the adorable Whimsy stamp (the cute wedding couple) - I am sorry not sure what the name of the stamp is and the background stamp - as well not sure what company that stamp is from - I purchased it some time ago from our local stamp store.  I do know that there was lots of coloring with this card but I totally enjoyed the process!  I added some die cuts and flowers and a fiskars border at the top and that pretty much finished off the card.  It may be hard to see on the photo but the bride's dress is covered in sparkly glitter - very pretty in real life!  Thank you for stopping by my blog for a visit and hope you have a wonderful day!  Oh one more thing - everything was colored with copic markers.
