Summer Blog Hop

Hi all! Hope you are enjoying hopping along on the Summer  Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Brandy's Blog. If so you are on the right path, if not please click on this link to start at the beginning as we'd hate you to miss out any letters. Part of the fun of this hop is that you need to collect a letter from each of our blogs and try to figure out what then spell out! You will have until July 8 to enter your answer at

My favorite thing about summer when I was a child was the 4th of July. I loved all the fireworks, and playing badminton on the lawn with my family. Did you have those old metal sparklers? The kind they say are dangerous and don't sell anymore? I used to love those! So to remind me of all that great summer fun I made a wreath to put on my door.

 This picture was taken in my back yard because the light was better, but it will eventually go on the front door. I used paper from My Minds Eye for the stars. I cut them out of chipboard and then again out of paper and glued them together to make them a little more sturdy. Then I hot glued the stars to a white wire hanger (you can see the hook at the top). I hid the wire by weaving in some blue ribbon. The white and silver ribbon tales are from some Costco Christmas ribbon. My mother-in-law was getting rid of it and I knew I could find a use for it. It worked out great because it has wire in it to hold the curl.

I am especially proud of the bow at the top. I did some experimenting on it to make it myself. I hope this wreath puts you in the summer spirit! I'm also giving away some Glue Arts Adhesive and this green tote
this month so please click here and enter to win.I also entered this project in the Decorate to Celebrate challenge #2 4th of July.

Just a Little Lace

I'm not exactly sure how I feel about this card. I was trying to make a dress out of a scalloped circle. Someone told me it looks like a scroll, lol maybe it does a little. This was a scalloped circle from Gypsy Wanderings that I cut for a different card and didn't end up using. I didn't want to throw it away, so I tried this. I just cut out a few pieces till it looked like a dress (or so I though). The silver background is actually wrapping paper that I bought at Ikea a few years ago never used. I added the alphabet stickers that I picked up from the dollar bin at JoAnn's  and used some lace strips off a tank top that I was throwing out because it was damaged.
The black card stock I bough from Michaels a long time ago, and it was already embossed. I've had it so long I almost got rid of it. I promised my hubby I would cut down a little on the stash of stuff, and I really am trying. Which is why I'm going to post another give away soon. I've gotta pair down!

There's also a linking party going on at ScrappingMamma's! Join up.

Happy Crafting.

Father's Day Card

More practice with those Copic Markers! Last night I made a Father's Day card for my hubby to give to his Dad. Father's Day is coming up so I though I would try to get a jump on it instead of waiting till the last minute as usual.


I followed the card from the TFG Challege Blog Mystery Monday with Kimlayu. I thought it would be nice to enter one of the Greeting Farm challenges since I have so many of their stamps.  For this card I used a coordinating paper line from Carolees Creations. I created my own sentiment in Word.

 This stamp is Edward from The Greeting Farm. I stamped him on Neenah Solar White Paper with Momento Ink. I tried to do a little bit of shadow around his hair line to give the image some depth. I used the scalloped circle from Winter Woodlands, then I cut the inside circle 1/4" small than the scalloped circle just so show a bit more of the brown.

I decided that this time I would add a sentiment to the inside of the card. I sure hope his Dad likes it.These are the markers I used to color the image:

I also entered this card into the Sweet Stamps Challenge Masculine Card,  Polka Doodles Challenge Male Theme, Stamptacular Sunday Challenge Bugs or Boys, Lexi's Creations Father's Day or  Man Card, Freshely Brewed Challenge, It's a guy thing, and Simon Says Stamp Father's Day/Male Card.

Happy Crafting!

Married Laundry! A Bridal Shower Card

I was feeling creative this week so I though I would try another bridal shower card. I usually don't have this much time on my hands, but why not take advantage of it. This one should make any bride to be smile.

Just a little something to let the bride know what she's getting into.  I say make him to the laundry, ha ha! All of these cuts came from Sweethearts. I love the little clothes lines I saw on baby cards, so I thought I would try one too. I had one sheet of this paper from Kasier Craft that I bought for Valentine's Day, and it worked perfect as this card's background. I like that little strip on the bottom. Too bad it the strip will only be on this card because it's a border that ran along the bottom of that sheet of paper. I had to use my Xyron to glue bows and cloths pins down because the were so tiny. Running cuts through my Xyron makes it so much easier to evenly glue down those little bits of paper. Plus it helps me to keep track of them since they are all stuck to one sheet once I run them through.

I entered this card in the Papercraft Journal Challenge, Anything Goes/Favorite Challenge and the KB Cute Monday Challenge #15,  Anything goes. Using my Cricut is always my favorite way to craft!

Hope you like my card. Happy Crafting!
