Happy Father's Day!

 Good afternoon! I wanted to share a card with you that I
 made for Father's Day. I know sometimes we find it hard to
 make "manly" cards so I hope this card inspires you in some way!
I created the landscape by using alcohol inks on Yupo paper.
I also used the following stamp sets:
SU! In the Meadow (deer and grass)
I hope you all enjoy today by
celebrating the special men in your lives!

Good morning! I have a quick and simple card for you today that I think you can use for many occasions! I created a marbled look with three different shades of red/pink alcohol inks. This technique is a lot of fun so you've never tried it I encourage you to do so! I think it makes a great background! I added a beautiful die cut from the SU! Rose Garden thinlits dies.  
I used the new CARDZ TV stamp set "Love Ya" which
I am absolutely crazy over!!! This stamp set will make a
great addition to your collection! 

Have a fabulous day!

Hello again everyone! Today I would like
to share a gift idea with you! I will be
attending an early Thanksgiving dinner this weekend
with my family and wanted to take something nice to
give the cook! lol (My fiancé's mom prepares most
of the food for our dinner.) This year will be very
special for me because I get to have both sides of
my family in one place! Since we haven't been "home" (PA)
in quite sometime, my soon-to-be mother in law invited my side
of the family to her house this Sunday to celebrate with all
of us. This way we could spend time with everyone! It is hard
to visit everyone you love in a very short amount of time
 so I thought this was very gracious of her to do for me
It will take some of the stress out of trying to fine
enough time in a "four day weekend" to see everyone!

I decided to take her a bottle of NC wine and I wanted
to fancy it up a bit with a wine bottle tag! I read a short
 article about the effect of contrast so I thought I would give
that a try in my project as well. I thought the black/white
contrast really made Mary's sentiment POP! I think the font
she used to make this sentiment is very classy too.
It just really describes in ONE word how I feel about what
this family dinner on Sunday will bring for me! It has been
over a year since I have seen some of them so as you can
imagine I really looking forward to it! :)

Supplies Used:
SU! French Foliage stamp set
My Time Made Easy-Over the Top SVG
CARDZ TV "Many Thanks" stamp set

So what are some things you are
GRATEFUL for? This would be a great
time to pull out or purchase this stamp set
and make a gift for someone you would like
to show your GRATITUDE towards! :)
Hopefully I have inspired you today!
Have a wonderful day!
