Happy 4th of July!

Hi Everyone,

 are you enjoying your 4ht of July? I hope you do! It has been the coolest ever since I have been here for us - but warm enough to be enjoyable and to go to the pool (which I did after working most of the day....)

I have been staring at the sketch for this week's Paper Smooches Sparks challenge for the entire week - no idea of what to do - until the threat of Mr. Linky closing - that always gets my imagination I did a card in patriotic colors:

I used the stamp set Super and used the matching die. Some Washi tape and that's it.
Here is the sketch:

Brown Sugar - Red, white and Blue
Frosted Designs - Red, white and Blue with a twist (old Washi tape - brand new dies)

Cornelia, Had to smile at the idea of Mr Linky getting the motivation in gear for this cute patriotic card. I was much the same with the card I posted for 4th of July. Love the washi tape trimmings...and the way you've used the cityscape die and placed Mr. Super over the whole. This is just a fun & most patriotic card. I LOVE it! TFS & glad you were able to relax in the afternoon. Hugs

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
