Sunflower Card

Hi, So Glad you stopped by my Blog! I had planned on posting this on Saturday but I worked most of the day and by the time I got home it was just to late. So I've got a little time to my self today, so I thought I'd better get it posted.  I wanted to Share a picture of the Card that I made for my Sister Debbie for her Birthday! I had a good time making this Card because it was my first time making a Rosette. They are so Fun and easy to make!!!!!  Although I didn't have any 12 inch yellow Cardstock so I just Adhered two pieces of 6 inch Cardstocks together. So here is a couple of pictures.

Here is how I made the Card-

Cardstock Used- Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Close to Cocoa,Summer Sun

Ink- Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Summer Sun

Leaves Cut from the Wild Card Cartridge and then Stamped with the Itty Bitty Background Stamp from Stampin Up with Old Olive Ink and Sponged around edges.

Burlap Paper distressed with Edge Distresser

Ran the Close to Cocoa Cardstock through the Cuttlebug using the Tim Holtz Woodgrain Folder and then rolled my Brayer over it with Chocolate Chip Ink.

Made the ends of the Penants by using the Corner of a Square Punch.

Used my Martha Stewart Score Board to make the Sun Flower and to make the Scallop I used the Stampin Up Border Scallop Punch, Sponged the Edges in Summer Sun

The Center of the Flower was made by my Stampin Up Circle Puch, Used the Sizzex Spot Folder and rubbed my Chocolate Chip Ink Pad over it and Sponged the Edge with Chocolate Chip.

The Birthday Wishes Stamp is from Stampin Up and I placed a little Green Gem for the dot of the I.

Hope you enjoyed seeing my Card and Thank You for taking the time out to visit me. Wishing you a Happy and Crafty Day! Cindy

Pirate Cupcake Toppers and Oliver!

Hi Bloggy Friends! So glad you could stop by my Blog!  Last time that I posted, I shared a Pirate Card that I made for my Grandson. He Loved It and he had a Great time at his Party! I had told you that I had been busy making Cupcake Toppers. So I thought I would Share a Picture of those, I think I made around 30 and a picture of the Gift Bag that I decorated for him. He Loved them!

Also wanted to Share a Picture of the newest member of our Family! His name is Oliver! His 6 weeks old! and so Feisty! My Older Cat Taylor doesn't want anything to do with him. I had told myself that I wasn't getting another Cat. So when my Son's Cat had kittens my Husband wanted him. I kept telling him No. But he was so Cute I had to give In. But I'm telling everyone right now. No more Cats!!!! If I write it here, It's kind of official. Isn't It! Anyway here is a Picture of Oliver.

Thanks so much for visiting me today! Cindy

Happy Birthday Walker!

Hi and Thanks for stopping by my Blog! It's a Special Day!!! It's my little Grandson Walker's Birthday! His 7 years old today. What a Joy he has been in my life. His such a Sweetie. For his Birthday we are planning on going Bowling tonight and his Birthday Party is going to be this coming Saturday. He is having a Pirate thyme Party. I am busy making Cupcake Toppers. Hopefully I will get a picture of them to share with you.
Would Like to Share his Birthday Card that I made for him.

Ship- Designers Calender Cartridge
Waves- PaperDolls Everyday Cartridge
Sun- Create a Critter Cartridge

Stamps used:
Pirate Boy- K.Andrew Designs (Pirate Party)

Happy Birthday my lil Buccaneer and #7 - My Creative Time(All around Birthday Time)
Ship- S.U. Weathered Background Stamp

The Treasure Map was a last minute Idea, I just tore a piece of Vanilla Cardstock, Drew a Map on It, Used the Itty Bitty Stamp Set from Stampin Up for the spots. (I use that Stamp Set a lot)! and Sponged the edges with Close to Cocoa Ink and crumpled it up a bit to make it look old. Wasn't for sure If I should add the Map or not. I got tickled making It. I even drew an Alligator on It. I think Walker will like it.
Thanks Sooo much for Visiting me. I really do love It and Love Comments to. Would Love for you to wish Walker a Happy Birthday. So I can read them to him! Have a Happy and Crafty Day!
