Sheila's Birthday

It's been a while since I posted a card.   I went to PA last week to be sworn in as co-executor of my Dad's estate.  It was a bittersweet and emotional visit. I did enjoy hanging out with two of my brothers and two nieces.

Today's card is for my SIL's birthday.  I chose JJ Beach from Bugaboo Stamps.  My BIL is having some health issues and I know they are wishing they were sitting on the beach somewhere!  She is colored with copics, cut out with Lawn Fawn large stitched rectangle die, clear wink of stella on her sunglasses and lips, glossy accents on the drinks as well as her sunglasses.  The layout is for Stella Says Sketch #604.  The drink and striped digi paper is from J Laurie Studio on Etsy and the cs is from Craft Smith.  Ribbon from Craft Smart, pearls, colored with copics by Recollections, drink sticker from Jolee's Boutique, and sentiment from Birds Cards (I think...couldn't find it) cut out with SB large circles die and matted with SB large scalloped die.

Today's card is for a co-work of my daughter's for her birthday.  She loves owls, so I chose  Bugaboo Stamps Cute Owl.  She is colored with copics, cut out with Stamps of Life large stitched circle die, and matted with SB large scalloped circle die.  The layout is for Sketch Saturday #499.  Owl paper by Jillibean Soup, lime green swirls from The Paper Studio birthday extravaganza, Bo Bunny orange citrus double dot, and cs from my stash.  Stampin' Up! banners framelit die, orange enamel dots from Recollections, and gems from my stash.

Crafting Day

My daughter came for a crafting day yesterday!  She wanted a shirt for the 100th day of school.  She is a math teacher and uses Base 10 math modules.  So she designed her shirt in Silhouette Studio and we cut it out with vinyl.  She is so excited for her students to see it!  The "FriYAY" shirt is one she saw on Etsy and immediately wanted one.  I think they both turned out adorable and she is THRILLED!

We then did a print and cut in Silhouette Studio of Valentine goodies for her students.  All in all we had a very productive day with lots of fun and laughter!

Becky & Chase's Valentine

I made this card for my daughter and her boyfriend.  She LOVES pigs, so I thought it was fitting for them.  The image is called "I'm hog wild over you" by Robyn's Fetish.  I couldn't find her store online, so if anyone has any info on her please let me know.  I colored them with copics, cut out with Lawn Fawn large stitched square die, glossy accents on the glass (which the drink is suppose to be a Margarita), and clear wink of stella on the hearts and hair bow.  The layout is for Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 #129.  DP from The Paper Studio and cs from my stash.  Sizzix decorative flourish die, punches from Stampin' Up!, gems from Recollections, and sentiment by Doodle Pantry (not longer open).

It's time for a new challenge at QKR Stampede.  I chose Cowboy Cactus (but it's really a pencil) #19705.  I colored him with copics, cut out with Lawn Fawn large stitched oval die, silver wink of stella on the band under the eraser, and gold wink of stella for the sheriff badge and belt buckle.  The layout is for Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 #128.  DP is from The Paper Studio and blue cs from my stash.  The sheriff's badge and sentiment were print and cut on my Cameo.  A dark brown piece of leather tied around the bottom (I promise it's there!) and vintage photo distress ink around the image and badge.
