The Fish House Restaurant

While we were away in Florida this past March our youngest son Cameron came down and spent the last week with us.
We definitely had to take him out for some fresh seafood so we headed to the marina across the street from our condo and had an awesome meal at The Fish House Restaurant.

The Paper Bakery has a sketch this month that was perfect to use with a photo of Cameron at the restaurant.

Dynamic Duos #59

Happy Saturday everyone!

This week is Mix and Match week at Dynamic Duos. We choose one colour and then you add whatever colour you wish to it to create your own duo.

The pre picked colour is Basic Gray and to it I added Teal. I think it makes a wonderful combo for a wedding card!

How nice!

So nice of the Ribbon Carousel to pick my card as todays Fabulous Find! It really made my day!

You can see the blog post here.
Here is my blog post featuring this card.

Birthday card

I have a quick and easy card to share with you that I made with product from Scrapbook Memories and More.

I used some pretty patterned paper from Prima and some red and yellow cardstock.
Add a nice sentiment and a glittered butterfly, ribbon and a flower and there you have it!

Oh Christmas Tree

Yes I know that it's like 90 outside but I quickly had to get my card done on time for the Merry Monday challenge.

I didn't have much time before we were heading out for supper so it's not my best card ever.....that's for sure.....but I think it will do.

Stamps: Gelatin & SU
Embossing Powder: SU
Pearls: Doodlebug
Die: Wplus9
Other: unk twine, Versamark
I tried to get a decent photo of the silver embossing but the lighting just wasn't great.

Dynamic Duos #55

Wow..once again it's Saturday! Can you believe that it's June already too? Me either.

Well since it's Saturday that means it's time for another Dynamic Duos challenge. This week the colours are "Raspberry Ripple" and "Wisteria Wonder".

Cardstock: SU, Wplus9
Embossing folder: ProvoCraft
Ink: Versafine
Stamps: myStampBOX, MME
Die: MFT
Other: Copics
I found that cute little flower stamp in my stash but I didn't have the ink colour that I wanted so I tried something I've never done before. I pulled out my copics and found a matching colour and inked my stamp up with the marker.
I like the sort of water colour effect it gave.
I hope you can find some time to play along this week!
