Red, White, Blue and a Star Too!

Have you checked out the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge Blog yet this week? You really should because the challenge this week is soo much fun! It's called Red, White, Blue and a Star Too. To meet the challenge requirements you needed to use the colors red, white and blue BUT the twist was you needed to add at least one star to your project too! Although my card didn't turn out exactly as I had pictured it in my head before I started I still think it came out kind of cute. You can't really tell from the pictures but the stars are actually popped up off of the page, floating on wire. I think that before I send it off to anyone I will actually add a few more stars and maybe even a quote or something. Not sure yet...I just know it needs something before I write it off as being finished. Any ideas? I'd sure love to hear them!
Thanks for stopping by and visiting me! I appreciate it more than words can ever say...

This week over at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge the challenge was to make a project for a father who is someone special in your life. My dad passed away a few years ago and boy do I miss him! I made cards similar to this for a SWAP that I was in with my Design Team. For this card I used a Versamark ink pad and stamped the old fashiond cars on it and if you notice the clock says it's 6:20. Why am I mentioning the time...well, because it's my dad's birthday. He was born on June 20th. I'm not very good at making masculine cards but actually enjoyed making this and I even think it turned out pretty well.

So, now it's your turn! Let's see what fabulous creation you can make for a father that has made a difference in your life!

"One for the Boys!"

This week's challenge at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge Blog is called "One for the Boys!" AND...what a challenge it was! You'd think that since I am the one who creates all the challenges that I'd be a little easier on myself...good grief!

In order to play along participants must create a special project for a man or boy in their lives. I decided to make a birthday card for a little boy! Thank goodness we had an image SWAP amongst our Design Team members and I got some wonderful "boyish" stamps! Otherwise...I would have been out of luck or heading to a store to buy something. On second thought, maybe that wasn't so smart of me...I had the PERFECT excuse to go shopping and passed it up?!? What was I thinking?

Anyways, here's what I came up with. Hope you like it!
