It's Father's Day...


It's a Great day to be a Daddy!
 
This pictures was a last minute project due to planning my sons birthday party he had yesterday.  I saw this while stalking Pinterest the other day and had to make it.  Now that my husband travels weekly his new office does not have family photo's yet.  Unlike his office here.  What a great way to add a little bit of home when he's away from home. 
 
It's my son's 11th birthday tomorrow.  Which means I was in labor on Father's Day.  I was hoping to hand my son to my husband on Father's Day.  But my son had other plans and after 18 hours of labor he came the next day;)
 
Each of my 3 kids holds the letters spelling out DAD.

I grabbed these wood letters at Michaels.  No paper, no embellishments, just plain white.  This way the letters in the photo's pop.

I used the portrait setting on my camera and used my garden as a back drop.  Thank goodness the sun popped out.

I really had to sneak around!  But I finally managed to get all ready. My children have an amazing Daddy and I'm so proud they have him.

To all the Father's a very Happy Father's Day!

HEY USA... IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!

Celebrating the 4th of July with this patriotic card.  Since I have all these adorable paper dolls I dug through and found this pretty little girl holding the flag and wearing a pretty little sash.  My Mom's husband is American and this is his first July 4th since moving to Canada.  I wanted to whip up a card celebrating his homeland.

I finally get to use some of my seasonal paper with all these patriotic images.

My paper doll is coloured up with distress markers.

I added the dog... even he is inky with antique linen.

I inked the background and used the stars stencil... subtle and pretty.

Happy {almost} July of 4th

I hope all my American Friends a very special Happy Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by for this Canadian version on a Patriotic card. 

Make Over

Please be patient while my team and I (guys pictured below) rebuild my blog.

Due to unforeseen and sudden non communicated policy changes (by a certain online image hosting website) I have had to remove a lot of content I have built for my blog.  At some point my blog had a major system failure causing me to rebuild and start over.  Boo

Please note this change will not be "lipstick on a pig" and all future content will be AWESOME.  In the coming months I will be making adjustments to provide some of the best crafty eye candy out there.  YAY!


Thank you for your continued support, love and all around awesomeness!
And thanks a lot...
