Father's Day Tool Box...

 With Father's Day approaching this sunday I thought I better get going on a card for my hubby that is our go to to fix stuff around our house. What ever needs fixing he's our guy! I made a box card that folds down to fit into an envelope! I bought all the little tools at Michaels and stuck them on.
 If you pull the tab it reveals a little area where I will write a short little note of thanks! The side pieces I ran a piece of foil thru my cuttlebug with the hounds tooth pattern embossing folder...was kind of trying to get this too look masculine as possible!

Well this is a short post as I am off to work.....oh I would rather craft all day!!! LOL
Have a great day!

Campire Comfort...

 Soon it will be time to pack up the camping gear and head north to enjoy campfires, the stars and all the things that camping brings! So I thought I would make a pop up card using the Dreamerland Crafts stamp called Campfire Comfort. I had this idea to use my lights to light up the camp fire. I had to do a little creative wiring but it did work!  When you press down on the sentiment piece it makes the fire light up!
 I sponged the sky with distress inks and sponged the trees as well with distress inks. I used prismas to colour my image!
Hope your are enjoying some nice weather where you are! Thank-you for popping in for a visit!

A light up Summer's Eve card.....

 By no means is it a summers eve here...oh boy we are suppose to have spring flowers popping up and we have an ice storm here. Now there is some positive to this storm...I stay in where it is warm and make cards! No quilt that I should be outside enjoying the weather...no nice weather out there!
 I pulled out a Dreamerland Craft stamp called A Token of Love for you.....that needed to be coloured and placed on a lamppost light up kind of card! DreamerLand just came out with these wonderful background stamps that allow you to create this background. I added some lights that when you press the side of the card they turn on....yes, I do have an addiction with these lights.
 I sponged my background with Distress inks and then stamped the fence and then the lamp posts. I coloured my images with prisma pencils and then placed a few stars in the sky. I tried to draw some cobblestone like walk way for my two little lovers to walk on...it turned out ok....
Well, thank-you for popping in to see what I have been up to. Oh and hopefully some of you got away to Scrapfest in Kitchener and really enjoyed yourselves......

Farm Life...

 Hello to all....I needed a card for our neighbours daughter. She lives on a farm with many cows and horses. So this seemed perfect. Now, I am not sure what has happened to my card making but it really is not working well. I try something and then I look at it and sigh...(thank-you Marianne for your last comment and encouragement) I kind of look at this and think its lacking something.
 I made the barn the best I could and added all the cute animals. I hope she likes it. I sponged the background using distress inks and added a tiny bit of glitter to the bottom but I am not sure you can see it in my pictures.

Thank-you for visiting and have a wonderful day.

Oh Happy Spring....

 Still it doesn't feel like spring here....oh how I long for those warm days! I guess I will just stick to making spring cards. I downloaded a digital image from LOTV and tried to make a card using my new spellbinders die. I also tried to do a background like Amy does at A Thousand Sheets of Paper. She is the pro! I'm in training here!
 I coloured him up with prisma but have not added any glitter...will have to change that! I will go back and add it.
Have a wonderful Easter long weekend.....

Come spring.....

 Spring arrived last week officially but it is so cold.....come on spring please come! I do however like the fact that because it is not so warm out I don't want to spend time outside and therefore it makes me still hibernate in my craft room!
 I must say, I am just dreadful at taking pictures of my cards for my blog. I have tried a few things and it really is not so good! I colored up this Dreamlander image with prismas. Very simple but lately nothing I try to make is turning out. I just keep admiring everyone's beautiful cards out in blogland! Hoping that mine will be half as good as all of you!
Have a wonderful day.....

Barista & Bakery Card.....

 I needed a special card for a friend that just opened up a Barista & Bakery....I wanted it to look like her little shop and this is what I came up with. It is a pop up card that lights up when you push the side part of the card. Now as you can see her shelves are a bit empty...that was way too hard to make the little treats for the shelves. So I will leave that up to her to fill! LOL

Sorry my pictures are really poor. It was pretty tricky getting good pictures  today.
 I hope you can see that under the awning are 3 lights that shine when you push the side of the card.
Kind of a crazy card idea but it looks like her store. It did not turn out perfectly but I found it a bit tricky to do. I think I should stick to clean and simple cards! Congratulations Emily on your new adventure!
