A Bowwow Birthday

The June "Stampaganza" ends in a few days. I wanted to share a card I made with the "A Bowwow" stamp set shown below:
I am using it to wish my mom a "Happy Birthday." She is a big dog lover and I know she will get a kick out of this card. It seemed fitting as well as we just lost our dear old friend, Ben, at the ripe old age of 15 1/2. Ben lived a happy life and was a faithful companion to me and to our family. Here is the card I created (for some crazy reason my image wants to post as a rotated image and I can't figure out why): 

Project Supplies:
Stamps: A1126 A Bowwow
Paper: CC1017 Dotty for You paper packet
Cardstock:  Cocoa and Colonial White
Inks: Bamboo, Cocoa, and Sweet Leaf
Embellishments: Z1701 Chocolate Baker's Twine in the Neutral Assortment
Tools: "Wishes" how-to book, Micro-Tip Scissors, 3-D Foam Tape, and Glue Dots

Here is a photo of Ben:

I am hoping that he is happily chasing rabbits in heaven and digging some big holes too!  He will be missed.

Let Your Light Shine

It's been a beautiful weekend here in northern lower Michigan. Today was a lovely day to be at the beach, as you can see from a couple of fun photos of us. We've had a nice visit from family and I think they enjoyed the beach too:

In keeping with the beachy theme, I thought I would share the card I made for dear hubby for Father's Day. I was inspired by a card that fellow consultant, Pam, had shared on her blog. I will say that this was my first card made with the burnt edges and the fire got away from me just a wee bit.  Here is how it turned out:

Project Supplies:
Stamps: C1499 Perfect Day
Paper: X7147B Stella Level 2 kit & X7154B Cruisin' Level 2 kit
Cardstock:  White Daisy, Desert Sand, and Olive
Inks: Grey Wool, Cocoa, and Outdoor Denim
Embellishments: Z1701 Grey Wool Baker's Twine
Tools: Micro-Tip Scissors, Sponge Dauber, Foam Squares, and Glue Dots

Here are all of the images you get with the "Perfect Day" stamp set:

I have to say that I just love this great stamp set!  It is great for all the lighthouses of Michigan, plus I still have lots of photos to scrap from our trip to Maine last summer.

Don't forget that this month's Stampaganza special is over in just a week.  Hurry up and take advantage of the buy 2 stamp sets and get 1 set free!  You can head over to my website at:
