Make N Take

Today's Make ' n' Take, was this card i demoed the nestabillities,the glossy accents,the OMS and blending stump...and we used my new paper Scrapworks Love in bloom. The stamp used CC Designs Ladybug from Bugg-A-Boos.

Isn't she sweet though...i ran out of the sentiments but it was OK to keep it blank or even just add Motivet's "Just Because" Sentiment which i love because i never want a reason to give a card.

Well Have a Great Weekend,

Hanglar & Motivet

Stephanie from Motivet allowed me to stamp up some of these amazing images.This is a Hanglar and Stanglar image and the ladie that produces and makes these only sell these stamps to norway and sweden.So was i ever tickled pink to see some of these lovelies as a gift for moi.

I especially love this guy and the matching coutertop i had loads of fun watercolouring this image.
I used my prismawc pencil crayons. I first stamped it on watercolour paper 140Lb weigted paper.

These cards will be for teachers.
Well i hope you are having a great day!!

By the way Motivet is a new stamp company i am carrying and they are exclusive to me within a 100 km radius.

Happy Birthday To YOU!!

Hi Everyone Friday was my good friend Ellen's Birthday.She is the lady that owns the best ever restaurant in Petrolia.....ACTORS.This card was not made for her However she is the best most sweetest friend ever.She has been a very dear,sweet,kind,funny,and supportive friend. A little story though 2 weeks ago i popped over to the LCDS building and i knew i wanted to get her a bird house and i had lady bugs in i bought this adorable cute what i thought was a birdhouse but it was not a lady bug it was a bee......i pulled it out last wednesday and somehow it definately was not a birdhouse but i still gave it to her....She LOVED it and i was thankful yet bummed i'd made such an error not sure how though....Ellen Loves Birdhouses. Lord willing next year i can work on that project again.

I made this card using edwin and his dog rufus ain't he cute. i added glossy accents to the balloon and 3d'd the top tip of the balloon. I used w.c pencilcrayons and OMS with a blending stump for the coloring and of course the watercolor 140Lb Fabriano Paper---My favorite.

Have a Great Long Holiday Weekend!!
OH P.S. I have another new line of stamps coming.Stay Tuned for more information.

My first bike used in Holland was a Tandem Bike at Bep's place.Maarten was at the front and i the short one at the back.He kept asking me if i was peddling( as if ,right) ....of course i was.The next bike we rode was a bike made for 8 people and we used it on this trail to and meanwhile identifying and locating items like an scavenger hunt.there was my sil and bil and Maart and I & we had their 2 and our 2 needless to say it was alot of fun.
This image is an high hopes and i made it for someone who owns a local bike shop in town.He sells amazing quality product and works as best as he can with your budget!!Needless to say high in cost or not he is worth buying from!! He has tandem bikes in his window and got a hoot out of this card and if you pop in you may see this card sitting there on his counter he is awesome and definitely worth giving business to.The best thing he doesn't let you buy it till you are satisfied.He is honest and if he doesn't feel its for you he'll tell ya!!

Stamp: High Hopes,sentiment on the inside is also High Hopes
Paper:Bazill cardstock,American Crafts-Play Trampoline
Mediums: watercolor pencil crayons ,OMS,and Blending stumps
