Summer Fun Friday Giveaway #8

Happy Friday! Hope you all had a wonderful week. It is very hot here. I'm sweating way everyday.

I didn't stamp cause a good friend and her kids visited and stayed at our house for three days. This was the first time a friend beside relatives stayed at our house. It was exciting and fun to have a friend visiting. The men went fishing and us ladies was stuck uh I mean stayed with the kids. How fun was that!

Anyhoo, how would you like to win a yard each of each In Colours Polka Dots ribbons. Since I have not stamped lately and missed last Friday's giveaway I thought I will be generous. To win this simply comment on this post if you like tent camping or cabin camping or just a comment is fine. I'll pick a name on Monday at 9 pm Pacific Time.

I like tent camping. It is more fun but there's got to be a flushing toilets and shower stall.

Oh Dear!

I've not post for awhile. I've been having fun spending time with my family. We went on a camping trip two weeks ago at Manning Park in Lightning Lakes Camp Ground. It was fun! There were 24 of us camping. We got the 2 double sites across from each other. I like this camp ground cause they are really spacious.

Here are some photos of our trip. Enjoy!

Faith and Hope sleeping. We have to put extra blankets for the kids cause it was cold at night and hot in the day time.

A Little Something For You Card Holder

Happy Sunday everyone! I made this card for a customer awhile ago. She wanted a gift card to give to a friend on her birthday. So I asked DH to make a gift card on the computer for me. Well, he did a wonderful job on the gift card but there was a slight problem. Don't get me wrong I do appreciate what he did. The gift card was 4"x6" in size. I didn't want him to print another one so I made a card holder that can hold the gift card. That was how this huge gift card holder was made.

This card was 5"x7" in size.

Here is a photo of the gift card. This was one of a kind gift card holder. I don't think I'll be making another one.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Happy Stamping!

Summer Fun Friday Giveaway #6

Happy Friday everyone! Beautiful day today here! My new catalogue open house is today and I can't wait for some fun tonight. Are ready for the Friday giveaway?

Today I'm giveaway the card and this little cute matching purse (shown above) made with two scallop envelope dies. You can put anything small enough to fit in this little purse like candies, chocolate (every women loves this), note cards and more. I was waiting for my shipment of the In Colour polka dot ribbons and it arrived last night but I just found the box at my door step this morning. Which made my posting a little late. Anyhoo, to win this, comment on this post about anything or can anyone tell me how I can get rid of the border around the blog banner. Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated. Have fun!

ETA: I did the Rock N' Roll technique for the flower on the card.

Happy Stamping!

Asian Artistry Birthday Cards

Hello, stampers! Happy Tuesday! Here a set of birthday cards I made using the new level 2 hostess set Asian Artistry. I love this set the first time I saw it. I used the In Colours except the DSp to make these cards. I stamped the bird images all at once and then coloured them with a blender pen. One bird was a different colour which I was supposed to make the card in blue colour. I mounted onto the Rich Razzleberry already and didn't want to change it.It actually look really good with a different colour so I was glad I made a mistake. Well, there is no mistake in stamping. You just improvise! LOL

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!

Happy Stamping!

Congratulations Roses Card

Hello, stampers! Today is cloudy here and a little rain but I'm thankful for the coolness.

I made this card for a friend to give to a married couple last month. I thought I post this one but I didn't. The card was a 6x6 and it was hard to find envelopes for it. I ended up using the envelope that came with the Carousal Notes.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
