My Dad's Birthday Card

My Dad's Birthday was May 6th and here is the card I created for him this year!

I like the way it turned out! Although it's not very "manly" it is cute and I love the colour combinations. I chose paper from the Authentique "Curiosity" Collection. 

Of course I used my favourite medium…..Copic Sketch markers to colour the image. I used Crystal Stickles to add some bling to the balloon, party hat and present. I also used Glossy Accents on the Elephant's toes.

I used distress ink in Peacock on all the edges of the paper to make it pop a bit.

I stamped, coloured and cut out an extra party hat and present to add dimension to the card. My Dad loved the card and now he'll have to wait another year for the next creation from his darling daughter LOL.

I want to wish all the Mom's a Happy Mother's Day today! I made a cute card for my Mom and Mom-in-law but stupid me didn't remember to take a picture of it so I can't show you my card design. Oh well I have a couple more cards I need to make this week so stay tuned for more from me.
Chat at you later,

I'm Back!!

Wow it's been a month since I've posted anything! I'm not sure where the time went. We went on a fabulous vacation for a week to Antigua to celebrate our 10th Anniversary. We stayed at the Galley Bay Resort and Spa and had an absolutely awesome time. The resort was beautiful and the staff so friendly and helpful!

We had a deluxe beachfront room, a first for us. This was the view from our room out the back door. Steps to our chairs and the warm ocean! It was paradise!

This is by the main restaurant called Sea Grape. All the meals are 5 courses and presented beautifully! The best part is that it's open air and you are literally steps from the ocean! A beautiful setting!

Galley Bay is a small resort of only 96 rooms. there are 2 ground floor and 2 upper floor rooms in each small building. The grounds are beautiful and everything is clean!

We had the most beautiful sunsets to watch every night! I couldn't have asked for more on this vacation! It met all our expectations, dreams and wishes

 It sure was hard to come home and back to this awful weather. Also during April I wasn't feeling well and was just diagnosed with Vertigo so I wasn't really doing anything but laying on the couch! I feel a lot better now and am hopefully back to spending time in my craft room which I missed doing! I hope all of you are doing well! I have a card to share with you tomorrow that I made for my Dad's birthday.
So that's all for now, chat at you later!
