A New Challenge at Clear it Out Tuesday
Hi friends how are you coping with this hot and humid weather? I’m just spending time in the cottage crafting. It’s way too hot to spend time on the beach and too hot to take a walk but I’m getting caught up on some card-making. The new challenge at Clear it Out is International and the stash item is Washi tape…..now you know you have a few rolls hiding in one of the drawers of your crafting desk dig them out and show us how you use it. The international part is self explanatory but if you need to know more check out what the design team has done. Again this challenge we have two great sponsors Digi Darla and QKR Stampede check out the great digis they have for sale.
My card is honouring the Eastern Provinces, the ocean and lighthouses, I chose to showcase Canada which is my country.
Image…..Digi Darla Designs Lighthouse 1
Cardstock….GP white, Bashful Blue, Crumb Cake and a darker blue scrap.
Spellbinders Ovals Large and Small
Houndstooth washi tape
Thanks for looking today, I hope you find some time to join us at Clear it Out Tuesday for the challenge, I need some ideas to use Washi Tape.

You Make a Lovely Couple Week Two
My inspiration for making my card came to me while “listening” to a PBS program on T.V. The program was about the photos the men carried during the Civil War, I am not sure of the size of them I thought perhaps 4 X 5 and some were framed in embossed gold frames and carried in tin boxes to protect them. Being at the cottage I hadn’t brought any gold paper with me so found a gold gift bag and used it. I always seem to be missing something no matter how much I bring with me.
Cardstock….GP white , Early expresso,and a gold gift bag.
Embossing folder… flowers from a Cuttlebug Asian pack
Spelbinders…large and small oval
Thanks for stopping by today and come back again real soon.

Challenge #64, You make a Lovely Couple
Hello everyone, I hope you had a good weekend and had awesome weather. Our weather here in SWO is hot and humid, what is really nice is I am spending the whole week at the cottage. I plan and pack to craft while here but there are always things I forget but for this challenge I had everything. Check out what the other girls on the design team have done, you just gave to click HERE.
The challenge is “ You Make A Lovely Couple” and it is sponsored by Twisted Papers and they are on Facebook. I have trouble getting to things on Facebook since here at the cottage it’s dial-up, an a lot of time things don’t load very fast. When I chose my image for the challenge I knew right away I wanted it to be an ATC card, these are cute 2 1/3 X 3 1/2 inch cards, they are never sold, only traded or given away. Here is my artist trading card for the challenge and I hope you will join us at The Cheerful Stamp Pad
Image from Twisted Papers
Cardstock…Close to Cocoa, Early expresso
Dies Spellbinder rectangles, Fancy Labels 8 (the flourishes)
Accessories…. Woodgrain embossing folder, pearls
Thanks for looking today and have a fabulous day!!!

Make Someone’s Day and use Something Glittery
The image I used is Tulips and Bugs from Bugaboo, it is one of the newer stamps and I was so glad I got to use it for the challenge. I coloured the image with my prisma colour pencils and OMS I used a glue pen and traced the swirls and dots then added some prisma glitter. I then added a few amber rhinestones to the card, these are my stash item.

Although you really can’t see it the white was embossed with a Butterflies embossing folder.

Happy Canada Day for all my Canadian followers, it’s July 1st and Canada is 146 years old. There will be some great parades and fireworks this weekend, Port Dover has a huge parade and a lot of other festivities on July 1st. There is a band tattoo and fireworks in the evening.
On with the card…..I used a vintage fairy image from Vintage Image Craft, I printed it on Very Vanilla and layered it on Old Olive and a bright yellow, I popped it up on a base of Very Vanilla and Old Olive that I punched with the Fleur dis Lis EK punch.
