Celebrate Summer

It's Summer and the Frilly and Funkie Team is celebrating!  Summer for me is all about enjoying the warm summer days, my garden's and afternoon's on my shaded deck.  It's also a lot of birthday's and road trips in my motor home.

Some of you may recall Canada Day (July 1st) is also my husband's birthday.  So this is his birthday card.  I'm keeping this one masculine.


I fussy cut the Perspective Butterfly out and then made a Custom Blend ink pad with rusty hinge, fossilized amber and mustard seed re-inkers.  Have you made one yet...addicting!


I clipped and cut this photo booth then did a little colouring with rusty hinge.  


I "just" got my handwritten celebrate thinlits.  EEK...LOVE THEM!  I added a coat of glossy accents.  It's still drying.


I used some Clear Rock Candy Distress to crackle the butterfly.  Can you see the cracked wings?  Pretty...


I'm starting to add more and more ephemera to my projects lately...weird.


Keeping it more masculine I added some hardware and some burlap.  



I had so much fun making this and it took no time at all to pull together...about 45 min.  Stop by Frilly and Funkie and share your idea of summer with us HERE.





This will be my last post for Frilly and Funkie...( insert sad face) 

I so love everyone and want to thank Linda for having me, Jenny for putting up with me and the team for being so wonderful!  I love being apart of the team and I will miss them!  But, now this means I get to play along with the challenges again!  YAY!

Make mine a Double

Holy CRAP...I'm early!  
(sorry, didn't me to yell there)

Lately, I seem to be just squeaking my tags in at the last moment!  I cannot tell you how BUSY I am creating and scheduling posts.  I have a lot of stuff coming up and exciting things to share.  But for now...let's bask in the glory of my June Tag...DONE!  Or at least I will bask!

 I know, I say it all the time but it's true...this was FUN to make.  I really love those Custom Ink pads...have you made yours yet?


Let us take a moment here people...this is my last "big" mirrored star :(


Now, I am not a fan of the Frap...(no haters please) but it's true.  Whip Cream is not my thing.  But, I did enjoy making it look whippy.


WOOHOO...I know I'm late to the Flashcard Party but lookie...I have some now.  ENJOY!


I do love my #hashtag stamps but I really wanted my wordband and mowed lawn distress paint to meet up and get grungy!


I didn't have a green straw either...I know shocking.  I used the straw that comes with the Freshly Brewed die and inked with mowed lawn distress paint.  No coloured jute stuff either.  So, $1 store jute and more mowed lawn.  Pretty EH...


There you have it!  

It's Father's Day Sunday and my husband LOVES Starbucks.  He has his gold card and everything so this is perfect to nestle in a loaded card for him.  Great way to celebrate Father's day!
