Happy 4th

Hi all, the 4th of July holiday is coming and I can't wait for an extra long weekend!

 I used Phindy's image called "Parade", colored up with prisma pencils. I used Phindy's "circle" challenge this week as well. Isn't this a happy card? I plan to send it to my daughter and her boyfriend who was a drummer in a high school band. And how about the dog with his cute little tamborine tied to his tail!

I trimmed a red feather and added it to the drummer's hat, accented with a gold flat back bead from Micheals. Paper is K&Company 4 x6 mat stack in Americana.

Dear Husband's Card

I made this for the"Beach Theme Challenge" for Mary's Cards TV blog. Just went to link it up and I missed it! DARN! Now no one will see it. oh well, my husband will and that's all that counts. On our anniversary 2 weeks ago, he said, what, no handmade card? Nope, I cheated on that one and bought one, heaven forbid!
I used all BG paper except for the sand paper which is DCWV. Cricut cartridge used is Life's a Beach. I get alot of use out of that one, good for men and summer. We are boat owners so we are at the beach frequently.
This is a view of a gorgeous sunset from the back of our boat at Watch Hill, RI. The are no better sunsets in the world, and I've been to alot of Caribbean islands! Later, peeps! By the way, that's not our boat in the pic, that's our dinghy!

Happy Father's Day

Hi all, This is my FIL card for today. The family is coming over for a cookout later, this will be for him.
My dear Father is in his finally resting place and I am thinking of him today.
My husband is a great father to our 2 daughters, I have a card for him. I will post later.

I cased Betsy Veldman's card, just made a simpler version and used the new nautical collection of paper from SU. It's so nice for masculine cards. The photo below is of the page from one of the Papercrafts Magazine. Don't have time to go see which one. I have to go get ready for company to come over. I used the inside too. Thanks Betsy!   Have a good day everyone. It's a beautiful day in Connecticut today!

Phindy's Sketch#58

 Hi All, Here is my take on the lastest Phindy's sketch challenge#58. Don't ya just love pink and black? I never get sick of it. I used a Pink Cat Studio image for this card. It's called Diva poodle.  So cute. I could see myself making duplicates of this card with Black/White and Turq., lime green, purple!
The pink background I used detracts from the card somewhat and makes the photo look cluttered! Oh well.
Glad I could play along this week!  Links to challenges below.

Here's my card from Phindy's #57 Challenge. I missed the deadline, AGAIN! The challenge was summer and what says summer like strawberries! This is such a cute Phindy image with the little mouse! And I love the Basic Grey Nook & Pantry 6x6 paper too. I struggled with a sketch challenge for this and ended up giving up and just finishing it to "Get her Done!"
