Garden Visitor

Just a quick pic of a tiny visitor to my garden. Much smaller than the young bear who passed through the yard this evening!! Of course I was too intrigued and busy watching to get my camera!!

Happy Birthday







Another birthday card for August!! This one is for my father-in-law. He is an avid outdoors man and hunter and beleive it - this is the closest thing to outdoors I had in my stash of stamps. Will have to fix that!!

Anyway, I used an owl from The Greeting Farm's Hoo Loves You set, some Stampin Up dp and some CTMH buttons. That's about it, other than a little sparkle from my Clear Spica Glitter Pen and some Glossy Accents on the little guys beak

By the way, I coloured the owl using Stampin Up inks and a blender pen.

Happy Belated Birthday



Here is the third card of four birthday cards I need this month. Actually the birthday was in July but luckily we haven't got together yet so I'm good!!

I continued with the Bo Bunny Barefoot and Bliss paper pack. This time I used Kraftin' Kimmie's Eleanor. She was fun to colour. I used a bit of some homemade glitter spritz on the flowers and some Hero Arts gems for the center. And for a bit more bling, I added some Diamond Stickles to the flowers on Eleanor's hat. The sentiment was popped up using some mini pop dots.

I finally made my own cloud background with some sponge and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I simply cut out a piece of cardstock in the shape of a cloud and sponged around it all over the white background of the stamped image. I'm very happy with how it turned out and it's actually not so intimidating like I thought :-)

I used I Love 2 Stamp's August Sketch for You to Try.

I'm also entering this in the Crafty Calendar's August Challenge - Hot Colours and The Crafty Pad's Challenge #134 - Cute n' Girly and of course I also entered The Spotted Chick's That's Krafty Thursday #53.
