Red, White and Blue B-day!

Hello, Blogger Friends! Its been a rather busy month so not much time for posting on my blog lately. But today I will show you a card I made for my son-in-law's birthday, which was Tuesday, the day after Memorial Day. He is a veteran so I thought the red, white and blue theme with stars and stripes was very appropriate.

I used a new embossing folder that I simply HAD to try out...the Sizzix TH Diamond Plate. I used a piece of  foil coated paper so it really looks like diamond plate! Love it! Very manly, don't you think?
Other ingredients:
Stamps- "Happy Birthday" by Stampin Up,
Bible verse by Verve,
Birthday greeting by ??? (Amish booth at Shipshewana)
Paper/cardstock- Paper Studio and my stash
Ink- Black Licorice by Fun Stampers Journey
Ribbon and stickers...from my stash


Challenges: - May 26 - June 2, Anything Goes

As always, thanks for stopping by today!

For Mom....Sweet Memories

Here's something really unusual for me to do, a scrapbook layout page! I did an 8 1/2 x 11 so it can go in a frame easily. I found a couple old pictures I had saved on my computer and printed them on photo paper in sepia tones. Used a whole bunch of different stamps and dies!

Challenges I'm entering: - #220 For Mom - #182 Anything Goes/Family Friendly - #251 Pretty In Pink - #79 Cute Critters (butterflies)

Whoo Hoo! Owl Celebration!

And yet another quick post, again for the challenge at! They are having both a color challenge and a sketch can do one or both...together or seperate. I chose to do only the colors on this one.

So here is what I came up with, using almost all Fun Stampers Journey products!
