4th of July card & some Blog Candy

It's funny I have always loved 4th of July, but I don't really have many people to send a 4th of July card to, so I hardly make them. I found this C.C. designs set on sale at All that Scraps, it has 4 saying stamps and one other cute girl besides the sailor girl I used, so 6 stamps for $5.75. That's a great price for red rubber stamps. They have other cute stamps they are retiring also. I think I will use the Sailor girl and the "ahoy there" saying to make a set of cards for my best friend. Her father was in the navy for 33 years. He passed away a few years ago and as a tribute to him she had a tiny anchor tattooed on the top of her foot.

Here are some really cool blogs with chances to win their Blog Candy. Paper addict and a latte inkin fun.

Splish Splash

I am currently making cards from a list of cards I've wanted to try. The list is mostly stamps I have and haven't used, or colors I haven't tried and some are sketches. Some haven't made it to completion but some have worked out really well, like this one I put together today. I think he is soooo cute! I was trying to work with colors I wouldn't normally use. I think it could of used a layer of red between the white card base and the solid turquoise. Oh well live and learn.

With You.... my favorite place to be! This is the card I made for Braden to give to his daddy for Fathers Day. I'm always saying my hubby is like a polar bear, he's chubby and growls sometimes and he likes our house at a chilly 72 degrees! My mom and I turn it up during the day, but he knows even if it's a degree difference. lol That being shared.
Braden loves, loves, loves, his dad and when they are together it just makes me smile. Braden just can't get enough of his daddy. When daddy is home Braden is all over him.
I picked this stamp up last year at a stamp show with them in mind. I stamped the bears on some white card stock and outlined them with my gray marker to make them pop.

How the cluck are you?

I don't know if this has ever happened to you, but it happens to me constantly. I will see a card idea I like, then I will click a link to something else, and then something else, on and on and then, I can't find my way back! Well one day during my crazy Blog Hopping I came across these chicken cards. I thought they were so cute! I want to share this Blog, because I thought her Tuesday Challenges are way cool. Check it out.
I free hand cut the chicken base, and heart wing. I used a med primitive heart punch for the beak and comb, a small flower punch for eye, and a reg. hole punch for the pupil. Misc brown button with twine threaded through.
PS- I think "Happy Clucking Birthday" is pretty funny too!

Owl's it going?

I know owls are probably on the way out in some circles, but I still really like them! I was on a computer hunt yesterday for an owl pattern that I could use to make some paper ones. I admit I am just not very good at computer hunting. If anyone knows how I can just search for things in Blogs let me know. Well in my hunt I did come across the cutest owls this lady had made out of felt, and thought I could totally make those out of paper! These are just some of the ones I made. The saying is from TAC, and the paper is all scraps out of my scrap drawer.
