Birthday Boy Spaceship Card!

Good Morning and a Happy Day to you!!

Oh I've neglected my blog, too much going on the past few weeks, but hopefully getting back to some stamping this week!  The best part of the holidays was having my son and his family here fro Washington!  It was my Grandson's Birthday on the 22nd, he turned 5!!

Here he is at the Grand Californian character breakfast at Disneyland:

And here's the family:

His birthday is 8 days before mine, and mine is today!!  I was almost 50 when he was born, so that's how I remember my age (ha ha!), he turned 5 on December 22, I turned 55 today!!  Oh My Goodness!!!  I feel so blessed!!

Here is the birthday card I made for Ryan, I've love this Blast Off stamp set by Stampin' Up!

The colors I used are Island Indigo, Real Red, Marina Mist, Gumball Green, Whisper White and Daffodil Delight!

He really liked it when he opened it!

I realized also that I could have circled the "5" in the blast off countdown, since he turned 5, but I did add the number there also!

I used a clear mylar for the window of the space ship for a little added texture!

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you had a wonderful holiday, and that you will have a Blessed and Safe New Year!  Hopefully I'll be back to my blogging!!   HAPPY 2013!!

Jingle All the Way {on a bike!}

Have you ever seen a bicycle strewn with Christmas lights?  And a tree?   This bicycle stamp has a little Christmas tree in the basket, and Christmas lights decorating the bicycle!!

The background is texture embossed, looks like tons of little snowflakes!  There is a teeny tiny bit of glitter on those teeny tiny Christmas lights!

The colors used are Whisper White, a touch of Basic Grey in the background paper and some Gumball Green for the sentiment tag.

I cut the bicycle out, and used a bit of color for the lights with markers.

I love the little tree in the basket, it's those little details..

And the sentiment and bicycle are stamped on the inside of the card, I just love simply stamping, sometimes that's all you need!!

Have a creative day AND thank YOU for stopping by today!!

Reindeer Food..

Hello and Happy Beginning of the Week to you!!  December 3rd already!!  I love this stamp set from  Taylored Expressions called Reindeer Food.   

Oh and I love photo apps too, adding the sparkles and decor to the photos adds a little somethin' somethin'!!

For this "fast and easy" care I just stamped the reindeer in Bermuda Bay right on the decorated paper, added a little sentiment "Believe" and added the red rhinestone to Rudolph!

This would also make a great Christmas card, fast and easy is the key to making lots of the same cards!

The reindeer are just frolicking along the card front.....

The colors used are Very Vanilla and Bermuda Bay.

The sentiment inside is the "instructions" for the Reindeer Food, and I also added the "instructions" as a tag.

The faux Reindeer Food is some Coach's Oats, some sprinkly fake snow glitter, some glass glitter, glitter and a little bit more glitter!

Thank you for stopping by today, have a funtastic day!
