One for the Show

It's Monday and that means a whole week of inspiration for Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge.  This week we've got your "Ticket" to ride!  You can interpret this anyway you like.
  
I love my Big Ticket die so I went straight for it using it as my foundation to create from.
I love the vibrant paper from the seasonal paper stash and this fun vintage paper. It made me think of those vintage move posters.

Of course I immediately thought of my Bird Crazy birds.  I cut the paste the whiskers from Mini Blueprint #4 and put him in disguise.


Then I stamped another ticket.  In behind it all I ran some film strip and attached with the tiny attacher.


I cut the tuft of feather off his had and added it to the party hat.  I don't know why really...I just stuck it on and kind liked it. 


Layering more tickets I stamped the mini ticket with this fun sentiment from the Way with Words set.  So fun ;)


The paper is so vibrant I decided to simple stamp black on white paper.  It's not something I usually do but I thought it would help my layers pop.


My media room is all decked out with vintage movie canvas's, a vintage popcorn machine and big metal film reels.  So this will be a perfect place to add my little wall hanging.

Don't forget there's a chance to win some spending money!


Thank you for stopping by.  I look forward to seeing what inspires your "ticket" project.

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...
