February Team Shares

 For February Michelle sent us these elements: A piece of DSP Tasty Treats (double sided), a stamped image of an ice cream cone from Cool Treats and a piece of Peekaboo Peach ruched ribbon.
The ice cream is done in Peekaboo Peach and Tangelo Twist and the cone is done in Crumb Cake. I added a Wink of Stella.
I used the new Carousel Birthday stamp set for the sentiments, stamped in black memento ink. The butterfly is made from the DSP. If you watched the video posted earlier you will see how to create the butterfly. It is not as hard as it looks. For the card I used Whisper White, Pear Pizzaz and Peekaboo Peach.
 This is the first card I had originally created but was not happy with it. For this card I used Old Olive and Mint Macaron. I created a shaker card and then on the inside I created a lollipop. I also used Emerald Envy ribbon and the swirly scribbles die cut image. Added a Wink of Stella and the sentiments are from the Cool Treats stamp set.

 Thanks for stopping by!

Stampin' Up! Baby Bear for our Troops

My grandfather, George, fought in WWII in the Navy, my uncle Corvin had fought in Vietnam in the Army, Uncle Dean served in the Navy and my father-in-law, Harold, fought in Korea. Both sides of our families have a history of serving in wars and in the military. My son-in-law, Chris, is a civilian paramedic but he served our country in Afghanistan. Even though he was not in the military he worked on the base. He learned very quickly how to read the ranks of the military personal lol!! He was there for three years while my step-daughter stayed here. So to honor them and those who have fallen on foreign soils, died at home and those who are serving or will one-day serve… God Bless America!!

chool is out, hot weather, swimming pools and ice cream is the signs of summer. This time of year we celebrate Independence Day on the 4th of July with parades, food, family and the finale of fireworks.

Mason Jars are all the rage right now so I was excited to see Jar of Love from Stampin' Up!
Lately on Pinterest there have been a lot of ideas to use mason jars for your backyard barbeques. You can use them to hold your utensils, flowers for centerpieces, luminaries and so much more. My inspirations for these two cards came from Pinterest. The first one to inspire me was cre…
