I used the Coluzzle to make the oval for the "Happy Birthday" sentiment. all the flowers are mounted with dimensional.

Here is a close up of the card.

p.s. My dad is at home now. The doctor never told use what is wrong with him but I'm glad he is o.k. Thank you for all your prayers.

Father's Day Card

Another Father's Day card or it can be a birthday card.

My dad's birthday is coming up on June 2. He is in the hospital right now. The doctor did not say what kind of sickness he is having but have to stay for few more days. I hope he is able to be out before his birthday. Please pray for his salvation and for fast recovery.

Thank you for stopping by and visiting my blog.

For Father

Here is a card that can hold a gift card or money. It is a perfect gift for Father's Day.

It uses a 4 1/4" x 10 3/4" card stock score at 4 1/4" and 8 3/4". I got this idea from Dawn's Stamping Thoughts. She is such a talented lady.

I didn't have any other gift cards one hand so I use the Linens and Things gift card for you to see how the gift card fit inside the card. I use the word window punch to punch out the slot to hold the gift card.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Father's Day Card

Father's Day is coming soon and I'm making some cards for the upcoming Father's Day class. Here are two cards I came up with so far. Hope you like them.

Both cards are made from the For Father stamp set from the Occasion Mini (which the date is extended until the end of June). Yay! This mini catalogue is so awesome. I love all the sets that are in there and the new designer papers, they are just gorgeous. If you live in Canada and don't have a mini catalogue yet and would like one, email me and I'll send one to you. Or you can view it here.

Well, thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

Wall Hanging

I made this wall hanging sample for the Mother's Day class in May. We did the three panel one (see here) and I wanted to show them they can do one also.
This wall hanging was so simple and fast to make.

I used the Afternoon Tea DP for the background and the One of a Kind stamp set flowers and punched them out with the Boho Blossoms punch. I put rhinestones in the middle of the flowers and then mounted the flowers with dimensional.

updated: That is Hope, my youngest, in the picture.

It is long weekend here in BC and I'll be enjoying the beautiful sunshine we're having.

Happy Mother's Day and Blog Candy

Wishing every moms out there a wonderful Happy Mother's Day.

I made this for a class on Friday so I'm giving these two cards and treat pouches to two people.

Leave a comment here how your Mother's Day was or if you are not a mom, how did you celebrate this special occasion with your mother. I'll Pick two winners on Friday May 16. Good luck!

My Mother's Day was great. My husband made me an omelet for breakfast and the kids surprised me with a hand stamped card and perfume. Then DH took me out to "The Pen" for lunch. After we went to my nephew's birthday party. It was a busy Saturday full of activities.

Here's the card my children made for me. They knew I love the flower from the Embrace Life stamp set. My five year old did the sentiment. Thank you Jarod, Faith and Hope. You're all so special to me. God has given me three wonderful children. I love you.

Wedding Card

Hello, everyone! Beautiful day today. I love the sunshine. I have a busy day today so I'll be quick.

I made this for a friend for her wedding. She got married yesterday. I can't wait to see her wedding photos.

The sentiment and the floral background was embossed and the brown flower or whatever you call it had crystal effect on it. The card looks better in real life.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend. This year's Mother's Day is also my wedding anniversary day. Wow! Can't believe is 12 years already.

Beautiful butterfly and some flowers. This is from the third level hostess set "Time Well Spent". I made a lot of cards with this set but finally I used the butterfly stamp. I put dazzling diamond on the butterfly and the flowers. It made the card very pretty.

My First Tutorial! Yeah!

For whoever is interested on how to make the lid for this box I did a tutorial for it.

Here it is.

-4" x 8 1/2" piece of card stock
-trimmer with scoring blade
-snail adhesive

Score 1 3/16" all four sides.
Cut four sides on the long side. Trim off two flaps as shown in the picture. I drew in the scoring lines on my card stock so you can see where the score lines are and the cutting.

Put snail adhesive on the two flaps .
Adhere the flaps to the sides. This is how the lid looks like before adhere to the box. Put snail adhesive to the flap that is hanging out and adhere to the box.

Hope the instructions are clear enough. Maybe not the explaining but hopefully the photos will.

Thanks for stopping by! Let me know what you think of my first tutorial.
