STVCSP12 - Grateful For You!!

This is a card I made using the Stamp TV Color Spotlight 12 Challenge colours of Moonlit Fog, Sweet Mango and White.  The colours I had on hand were very close to the challenge colours, so thought they would work.  These are a combination of colours which I would not have thought to use, but go nicely together.  The stamps are all from Stampin' Up and I used Black Momento Ink which I heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  The DSP is from K & Company, Que Sera Sera, (presently my favourite DSP). I also used Nestabilities Labels Ten as my focal image and Stampin' Up round and scallop round punches for the Sentiment.  Thanks for popping in!!

Mom & Dad 50th Wedding Anniversary

 My parents celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary on February 11, 2011.  On January 21, 2011 we had a surprise celebration for them which included approximately 70 family and friends who gathered at the Glooscap Curling Club in Kentville, N.S. to celebrate with them.  The party was a complete surprise to my parents and was a tremendous success due to lots of help from my brother, Dan, dear family friends, Erma and Austin, and many other members of our family and friends.  The above photos are the front and interior of the invitations we sent out to our guests.
 This is the Anniversary Card I made for Mom and dad.  Got to use some of my flower stash as well as ribbon from Michaels.
This was the fabulous cake we had made by Cake Designer, Lena Fevens of Lena's Designer Cakes in Port Maitland, Yarmouth Co., N.S.  She did a wonderful job.  The bottom layer was Red Velvet with Cream Cheese Icing, the middle layer was French Vanilla with Butter Cream Icing and the top layer was Chocolate with Butter Cream Icing.  There was also a layer of Fondant over the top of the icings.  There were gold embellishments on the cake as well as swags, swirls and flowers which were just lovely.  The only inedible parts of the cake were the stamens in the flowers.  It was delicious!!!

Happy Birthday!! - STVSKSP10

 This is a Happy Birthday Card to my dear friend Becky who is quickly catching up with me in age!!!  (guess she will always be six months younger!!)  This is also my card for the Stamp TV Sketch Spotlight Challenge 10 from a couple of weeks ago.  I used a Penny Black clear stamp image which I just love to pieces. 

 This is my Valentine Card to my DH.  Again I am using the Hedgehogs from Penny Black.  These little guys are too cute!!!  God also gave me a little poem to write to HP that speaks from my heart.  God has truly blessed us and I pray we will have many more Valentine celebrations together!!
 This is a Valentine Card for one of my Secret Sisters.  Hope she likes it!!!
This is another Valentine Card I made using the Mojo Monday Sketch 176.  The paper is Que Sera Sera from K & Company and the flowers are from Keepsake Scrap-icing.

Random Cards & Storage Box

This card was made for the STVSKSP9 & STVCSP9 challenges on Stamp TV.  I love the brown and blue colours together.  (My family room is decorated in these colours!!)

 This is a birthday card I made for my sister-in-law, Joanna for her birthday in January.  She loves nature so thought she would like this card with the flower and butterfly.  The flower and butterfly are coloured with my copic markers. 
 This is a card I made for a sweet young lady who just turned 9 last week.  Happy Birthday Makayla!!

This is a storage box from Kaiser Craft which I altered as a gift for my dear friend Rebecca (Ducky for short) who is celebrating her birthday on February 10th.  I used K&Company Double Sided paper called Que Sera Sera which I just love.  I like this box so much I think I will make one for myself!!!  Happy Birthday, Ducky!!!  Love you!!  :o)
