Happy 70th Birthday to my dad!

70 years has come so fast, I pray for many more. (o=
Love you DAD!

This is my wonderful dad!  Oh and my wonderful mom too! 
I made this video for my dad of him growing up and all the things he has done in his life.  My mom had to help me with  this.  I put all the pictures in, cropped them, etc.  She placed them in the timeline and I added the music.  I know he will really enjoy this! 
This is the front of the card I made for him.  (o=

This is the inside of the card. I wrote the poem for him also.
I write poems for  Mostly funerals and birthdays though.

Well, that is all...but you all should know that even through our difficult moments, he still means the world to me and I am so proud to call him my father!
Happy Birthday Dad!

Scrapbook Stamp Societies Blog Hop

Welcome to the first ever blog hop combining Scrapbook Place and Scrapbook StampSociety!!
This hop has wonderful designers from the Scrapbook Place using amazing images from artists of Scrapbook Stamp Society to create some delightful cards for your enjoyment. Each design team member has used an image from Scrapbook Stamp Society, in their creations. Please hop though the blogs below and leave a little comment on each blog in the hop. There's a prize today from Scrapbook Stamp Society, that will given to a winner selected at random chosen on Sunday afternoon. The winner will be announced and posted both on the Scrapbook Stamp Society blog and the Scrapbook Place blog. Good Luck everyone!

I used this wonderful cute image of the pig looking over the fence.  I cut out the image and placed it on baby blue embossed polka dot card stock. I then took a piece of embossed wood card stock and used a spellbinder die to cut out the middle of it.  I placed this over the blue and pop dotted it up for a 3-D effect.  I then cut out some leaves with a spellbinder die, accented them and glued them on.  For a finishing touch I added some Prima flowers with buttons.  

I made up the saying for the inside and just printed it off on my computer. 

Enjoy the rest of the hop!

Happy Independence Week!

I have to start off by saying this is a tearful time of year for me.  My brother passed away July 3rd, 2008.  Since then, the Fourth of July has never been the same.  He will always be in my heart.

Now onto the fun cards!  

Below is a fun Independence Image that Pam at designed! 

I had fun with this one!  After coloring the image, I sponged the background and added glitter to the white of the flag and to some of the flowers.  I then added some wonderful firework stickers.  I just love those! 

Another fun card I did is the American Horse card.  
This one was fun to make also.  I stamped a solid block square stamp. I then took the edge of a red pad and swept across the card to make the stripes.  I distressed the edges with black.  I then stamped the horse image, colored it, cut it out and placed it over the flag.  

I hope you had fun swinging by my blog.  Please be sure to hop along to the other blogs!
