Here are a couple of cards I made recently!  The first one is the one I made for my June Bug Secret Sister, the wonderful AmyMLT.  Of course I used a Tilda, I colored with Copics, on it.  Pretty much everything is just from my stash as far as paper and lace and stuff.  I hope she liked the card!

This other card is one I made to have on hand.  It is a Bildmalarna image called Little Mimosa.  She, too, is colored with copics markers.   Everything I used on this card is also from my stash.  I made the little tag using my Making Memories tag maker!  It gets neglected often and shouldn't cause it is a great tool!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  Grab a glass of tea and relax a bit, feed my fish, play my game, and maybe get a little inspiration.  Come back soon!

Happy Scrappin!

June Bug Blog Hop

Hello everyone!  Welcome to my stop on the Jumpin June Bug Blog Hop!  If you are following along on the blog hop from the beginning, you have arrived here from Doodles blog.  She is such a sweetie!  She was my partner this round on the June Bug Swap and sent me the greatest pkg of goodies!  Here is a picture of what all she sent me:
I can't wait to start playing with it all!! 

I have a couple different flowers I made recently to show you all.  This first one is made with a fabric softner sheet!  (It sure smells good!)  I have inked the sheet with Tim Holtz Distress Ink dried marigold.  Then I just freehand cut out circles and used a scallop circle punch (not sure of brand) for the smaller ones.  Poked a hole in the centers and inserted a brad!  Easy Peasy!

These next flowers were made with white tissue paper!  I inked it, this time with CTMH honey and hydrangea and again the TH dried marigold.  Then I freehand cut 4 each of 2 sizes circles for each flower.  Punch the hole in the center, add a brad, and then I crinkled them, one layer at a time, towards the center.  Uncrinkle them and there are your flowers!  Too easy!!

My last project is a work in progress.  I colored this fishing shack with my copic markers and then wanted to add clouds above it.  I took stickles (baby blue and waterfall) and put drops of them on the cardstock.  I then took a can of air (yes, just air...like you would use to dust your computer keyboard!) and gave it puffs of the air on the drops and they kinda blew upword, towards the top of the cardstock...kinda like puffy clouds!  I think the idea is great, but I will definately need to practice more!  I hope to eventually have this shack on a card (thinking a stair step card) with the new Tilda and Edwin fishing from the newest collection from Magnolia.  I also plan to put flower soft on the flowers in the flower boxes.

Now...how about a little blog candy?   I am giving away 2 CTMH ink pads (Blush and Hollyhock)!  All you have to do is become a follower of my blog if you aren't already, and leave a comment here on this post!  I will use a random number generator on Monday morning to pick the winner!!  Good Luck!

Feel free to look around my blog as long as you would like.  I don't have a lot of posts but hope you will find them interesting!  Also, feed my fish if they are acting hungry, and feel free to stay and play the game at the bottom for a while.  Beware though, it is a little addicting!!
After you are finished here, the next stop on the June Bug Blog Hop is Skrappindiva.  I am sure she will have something really cool to show you!

Just incase you have stopped by my blog and are just starting the blog hop, below is the line up for it.  I am in this swap group on the cricut message board (hosted by 2 awesome hostesses, Jana and Julie) with these wonderful and very talented ladies (plus a few more who dont have blogs yet) and we have a lot of fun together.  You can't ask for a better group of friends than these Jumpin June Bugs!  Happy Hoppin and thanks for joining us on our blog hop.

Happy Father's Day Dad!

Here is the card I made for my dad this year for Father's Day.  I find it very hard to make 'man' cards, but was pretty pleased with this one.  I started out coloring an Edwin, but just didn't have the perfect one for my retired farmer dad so gave up on that idea.  Then I put my thinking cap on and came up with this idea.  I used cheesecloth that I inked, a Tim Holtz stamp, and pretty much everything else is just from my stash.  I think my dad liked it when I gave ito him while ago.  We had a nice lunch at their house today and both my sisters, my brother and myself were all there to help him celebrate the day!  Any my mom too, and some of the grandkids and great grandkids.  Family gatherings are always so nice!

Happy Father's Day Dad!

This picture of me and dad was taken one Sunday at church.
