Summer.....Slider Card

 I tried my hand at a  slider card...which I was totally inspired to try after seeing Miss Normas! I love summer and this just has summer all over it. I fell in love with this style of card and could hardly wait to try it out. I used lots of dies...and coloured up Miss Tilda with prismas.
 When you pull the tab, Tilda slides out to reveal a sentiment and the inside slides out too! I am so happy Norma you posted your slider card...it has become a favourite style for me. I am already thinking about the beautiful Christmas cards I can come up with.  I used my most favourite Maja papers....delicious! LOL

I hope you are having a wonderful summer. I hope to do a bit more creating this weekend!

hello...summer.....

 The long awaited summer will arrive tomorrow....I am happy to say! Summer is my favourite time of the year.  My card today was inspired by the season! I had just bought these adorable stamps from the Pointer Scrapbooking store and really was looking forward to colouring them up. They are called Crafters Companion....Party Paws. So cute, I think.
I coloured with my prismas and popped up my flower just to give a bit of dimension. Very simple card...but I wanted to mail out this card today so I had to get it finished. Well, I am off to enjoy the sunshine...Have a wonderful weekend.

Awhhhh....summer at last!

 I have found my love of reading again and look forward to reading my new book that I just bought this weekend. I did however, judge the book by it's cover this time so I am really hoping it's a good one. My project today was also inspired by the front cover....Oh I wish I was her right now!
 Miss Tilda is getting her feet wet on the sandy beach. I got out my copics for her and the beach...I found they are so vibrant which is so nice. I even did my clouds with copics which did make me nervous as I am so used to using the prismas....but I think they turned out ok. A little more practice and all will be good.
 So with a new book comes a cute little book mark to match! LOL And of course, I had to make a card too!
I am going to enter this card and bookmark into the Magnolia-licious....It is "Summer"!

Post it notes....

 I needed three special little take along gifts for a get together in June! I thought I would try and make them post it note holders! I had just received my Purple Onion Stamp collection a couple of weeks ago....so what a perfect way to try them out! I coloured them up with prismas and then popped them up to give a 3D effect. I used copics to do the sky....and added a bit of glitter! Voila....

Hope you are enjoying the gorgeous weather we are having here in Belhaven, Ontario! Have a wonderful weekend...and happy crafting!

Welcome June....

 A big welcome to June.....my most favourite time of the year! Sunny skies, warm gorgeous temperatures....who does not love this time of the year. And with June, comes trips to the Ice Cream Parlour! Oh yah!!!! I loved Normas adorable icecream parlour she did last year so I thought I would try and do a miniature one for my calendar stand hubby made me.
Hope you bring in June with a smile like I did!! Enjoy your day!

Loving you......

 .....is the best part of my life! I was very happy to colour up these two images that I got from Heidi at the Pointer Scrapbooking store in Markham. She sells these wonderful images called " Dreamland Crafts"...you should see all the images to choose from. I love doing this style of card and had a go at it again. I made my stars by cutting out different sizes of stars and then just scored  them at each point. I love the 3D look it gave. I have a few of these stars in my house made of wood and metal.
 I paper pieced the little dress and the boys plaid shirt, this way it matched with my Maya papers that I used and love! Coloured both images up with prismas and added glitter! My sentiment is also a Dreamland stamp. If you are ever in Markham Ontario pop into Pointer Scrapbooking and give Heidi a big hello and check out her scrapbooking and card supplies!

Have a wonderful sunny warm day!!!!

Fun Wallet for a Card.....

 You can tell I have been so summer deprived here that I am posting this out on my deck in the wonderful warm temperatures! Last week I tried to do a wallet with a card insert. I saw the tutorial for one on Split Coast Stampers and thought it was just such a fantastic idea! I pulled out my beloved Maja paper and worked away at it. I kind of made it a bit smaller, but I love the idea...
 I bought this cute little Magnolia a couple of weeks ago and thought she was perfect for my project. So I coloured her up with prismas (what else is knew, LOL) and then added some soft flourishes to the sides of the card and a little charm....and yes....added some pretty glitter.

 I sure hope that were you are, that there is wonderful weather. We have earned it after the winter we had. Now, the only thing is, I always feels so guilty being tucked away in my craft room and not enjoying the weather. Our summers are so short.....but heck...I will just have to lug everything out on the crafty table outside under the umbrella! My blogging friend Kerri knows what I mean! LOL

Have a wonderful day!!!!
