Stampin Sister's in Christ #40 and Mojo Monday

I have never done a vintage look before but this was fun and I also used the Mojo Monday challenge for my design.  I used an emery board on the DSP to distress it and tore the white and then inked it with Close to Cocoa.   The gold on the chocolate chip around the verse was actually an accident.   The paper under something I was trying and then I thought it looked good, so I inked it all in gold with my Vintage Vogue stamp.   Thanks for putting out these challenges - it is helpful to make new cards.

Stampin' Royalty Challenge #20

I had finally ordered the Color Wheel from Stampin' Up and is it ever helpful!  I would not  try combinations of some colors together like Cameo Coral and Ruby Red.   Chocolate chip goes with so many colors but I quite like the combination of coral and red.   I love the new watercolor Trio Stamp set from the new Summer Mini Catalogue.   It makes a great background!  Make sure to check out Meilani's blog to see her fabulous creation for this challenge!   Thanks for joining us and trying out the latest sketch design!

Stampin' Royalty Challenge #19

This is my design for family.   These are my two girls - you might recognize one of these little girls in Sarah Newman's family scrapbook page as well.   She is my eldest cutie patootie.   It hardly seems possible that my two girls could ever have been this little.   I am still learning how to use the MDS program.  This particular page is one of the  MDS design layouts so you just have to find the photographs and put them in.   Then you choose the background paper and add your embellishments and voila.   This would be a great way to make a scrapbook of your family!  Be sure to check out Meilani's blog  for her great design for this challenge!

Mother's Day

My friend Angelica and I made this card for Mother's Day.    I was treated to a lovely Mother's Day by my daughter who made me a beautiful card.

Stampin' Royalty Challenge #18

Five of our primary classes at our school were very fortunate to receive free tickets to watch a play at the Carousel Theatre on Granville Island.   I had never read these stories before and read them to my Grade Ones to prepare them for this play.   They are great stories and my children just loved them.   We all enjoyed the play at the theatre as well.   Then I decided we should make our own book of Frog and Toad stories so I made this cover for our book and over the next two weeks we will make and illustrate our own stories.   I have given them ideas such as Frog and Toad go to a Canucks game, Frog and Toad come to our school, etc.   I can hardly wait to see what they come up with!   Be sure to visit Meilani's blog to see her great design for this week.
