Happy 13th Birthday

Today my youngest turned 13! Now I have two teenagers in the house! Since both my boys also speak German I chose a German sentiment for his card. The balloons that look almost white are actually a light green. 

We are currently away on an island on beautiful Lake Muskoka, Ontario, Canada. This is out last night here. This summer turns out to be crazy busy. But soon I hope to find more time to craft and post! 

Stamps: Create a Smile (numbers, sentiment)
Dies: SSS (balloons)

Happy Birthday with Wild Hibiscus

First I would like to apologize about the long breaks between posts. Working, visitors, traveling, summer activities etc. don't leave much time for crafting let along writing a blog. I don't like that one bit and feel like my batteries are slowly draining and I need to recharge them in my craft area.

Today I do have a card for you that I made for a Cardologist friend. We had recently talked about both owning Altenew's Wild Hibiscus set and not having played with it yet. So she challenged me to use it for her birthday card.

In the close up you can see the Wink of Stella shimmer:

And here the glittery flower centers:

Stamps: Altenew (flowers, leaves, butterfly), Winnie & Walter (sentiment)
Other: Stencil (My Favorite Things)

I stamped the flowers, butterfly, and leaves on watercolor paper, colored them with distress inks, and cut them out. The stenciled background I made a while ago on a Thursday night. It belongs to Dora. Thought it worked well on this card.

***Happy 4th of July!***

Happy 4th of July to all my visitors who celebrate this day!

We had friends over yesterday for a nice summer meal eaten outside, followed by a bike ride to a nearby beach to watch the fireworks over the lake! So fun!

Usually we are always traveling this time of the year and I rarely get around to make a card for this holiday. This year we are home but I still left it till the last minute and only had time to make a few cards for my Thursday night friends. So I kept it fairly simple.

Stamps: STAMPloration (brush strokes), Winnie & Walter (sentiment)
Dies: mymomenta (star), Avery Elle (zig zag border)
Other: embossing folder (Darice), star gem (Recollections)
