Amy & Jacob's Wdding Flip Flap Album


I am addicted to Flip flap albums LOL - this one I made for my friend Amy who got married on Saturday. Her wedding invitations were all in black and pink so I used watermelon colored ink and card stock and added the black and white. I used the Heart-throb stamp set which I love and embellished with beads, flowers, waxy flax and ribbon - hope you like it :O)

Here is a card which I made as a corporate entry a year or so ago - I love the way it turned out. The splash of pink really lifts the black. The cardstock was scored and then sanded and I used Baby pink cardstock, and Baby pink, blush and hollyhock inks for the beautiful flower from the beloved blossoms stamp set.

I used blush sassy strands to tie the card shut by threading it through a hollyhock spiral clip and then around a hollyhock button.

I saw a similar card that my good friend Victoria had done so took the idea and came up with my own interpretation of it :O) Hope you like it .

Thunder Over Michigan






What a fabulous weekend - Richard took the boys on Saturday and I joned them for a 2nd day at the Thunder Over Michigan airshow at Willow Run Airport. The Blue Angels and the F16 display teams were absolutely breathtaking in their manoeuvres. We all had such a good time.

Endless Friendship Card


I loved the way that this card turned out. I used the Endless Friendship stamp set and used baby pink, desert sand and white cardstock and Bamboo textured cardstock, silver brads and colonial white grosgrain ribbon finish it perfectly.
I stamped the flower in heavenly blue ink & rolled the edges in dutch blue ink for a graduated look.

Hope you like it :O)

July Stamp Of the Month cards


Oh how I love this set - the top 2 cards I made a girl version using the color combination of bubblegum and sweetleaf with black, and the boy version I used dutch blue and sweet leaf and bamboo.
The bottom card I used cocoa, and bamboo and twilight to prove that this isn't just a set for girls LOL.
I think it is such a versatile set and I have seen some wonderful artwork which has inspired me to make these - So thanks to Karen Pederson who gave me the inspiration for the top 2 cards :O)

Here on vacation.........

...... in Indianopolis. Goodness - where is the time going - I can't believe that it is nearly a month since I last posted !

Well the summer has been busy - down at the beach, at the movies, still working in between.

But Rich took this week off and we decided to take a road trip to Indy. We spent the day at the childrens museum yesterday - it was absolutely fabulous. Apparently it is the biggest childrens museum in the world at over 400,000 sq feet. And I think we walked every inch of it LOL.
There was a superb Tutenkamun exhibition there which we all enjoyed. Something I have wanted to see since I was a little girl. The boys also loved the steam train which was in there, the Jedi star fighter which was the actual film prop from Star Wars - The Clone Wars. There was so much to see. A brilliant day for all of us.

Today we are meant to be going to the zoo but at the moment it is raining - hopefully we will be able to go later today as the zoo here is awesome too - they have leafy seahorses which are absolutely exquisist. I wanted to bring one home with me the last time we came here LOL :O)

Anyway - when we get back to Michigan I will get back into my posting mode - get those pages made, make some cards and fun stuff to share with you all :O)
