Congratulations Grandparents

Part of the card collections I am making for Candys -- there is one each for a grandmother of a new granddaughter or grandson; and another for the grandfather of a new granddaughter or grandson.  I also went a little emobssing nuts -- which may or may not show up in the pictures.  I used a variety of stamps so will try and clearly identify what's what!

Happy Birthday BBQ

Just had a grandparents' weekend at Sarah's to celebrate both Father's Day and Ken's birthday.  The 6 of us grandparents, fortunately, get along very well.  I love this card I made for Ken.  It uses the Whipper Snapper BBQ guy - what's not to love?

Father's Day

Although John isn't my father, he is a father to my 2 daughters, and that's good enough for me!  Sadly I didn't get around to making the poor man's card until Sunday --- shameful for a card maker to make her partner wait!  Regardless because I felt bad I used one of my Whipper Snapper stamps because I love them so much.  Got a chance to airbrush the background with my tiny can of air and my copic markers.  Life is good
Stamp:  Whipper Snapper; Sentiment:  Word; Paper - some kind of bulk stuff; Markers: Copic!

Welcome Home Lindsay

My neice is finally returned from  Australia, and the party is on Friday night.  Still have to get some kind of a gift, but at least the card is done.  I looked through my paper for inspiration and found this Close To My Heart Moon Doggie selection, and since Lin's main squeeze is a surfer, and she was in Surfer's Paradise in Australia, this paper was perfect.  The rest just flowed.  Good to have her back in the country though!
Materials:  Stamps:  Ippity; Paper: CTMH; Ink: Momento - images coloured with Copic markers!

Marriage Advice

I was asked by someone to make a wedding card and after verifying that the recipient had a sense of humour, decided to use this super cute Whipper Snapper stamp.  The inside of the card says "Don't go to bed angry".  I also got to use one of my new Cuttlebug embossing folders, and some of my new techniques learned this past weekend at the Copic Certificaton Course.  A wild spending spree also resulted in acquisition of a bunch of new markers -- so life is good.
Materials:  Stamp: Whippersnapper; Green CS - SU; Markers -- What else? Copic!
