A Birthday Card for Doc

Today my husband asked me to make a birthday card for a golfing friend of his. Now I know Doc a little, enough to know that he's a practical joker... So I wanted to come up with something that would give him a chuckle.

I chose Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, and Whisper White as the colours and this is what resulted:

I can't imagine anyone calling Doc 'cupcake', so thought I would give it a try!!!

And then, because he is our age (the 'new' thirty), I decided this was appropriate:

I hope he enjoys it!

Thanks for stopping by!

Products Used:
Stamps: Sketched Birthday, Bring on the Cake, My Paper Pumpkin (2nd box)
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Stazon Black
Paper: Bermuda Bay, Whisper White, Basic Black, In Colors Paper Stack
Tools: Scoring Tool, Scalloped Circle Punches, Alphabet (retired)

Happy Birthday card for Sandi

Today is Sandi's birthday. She is a member of our Atlantic Stampers Ink Team, and a wonderful, bubbly, energetic, thoughtful, beautiful, person.

While Maree was visiting me last week we put together this card for Sandi - a special person deserves a special card - and we got this gorgeous idea from Judy May of Just Judy Designs.

There are a lot of details in this card, including several embossing folders.

And a beautiful pop-up basket of flowers inside.

The pop-up was easy with just a couple of cuts made on the Stampin' Trimmer.

Lots of hand-cutting the pretty Stippled Blossoms flowers.

And other little details...

This card is much like Sandi herself, lovely on the outside, but even better on the inside!


HAPPY BIRTHDAY SANDI!!!  Hugs from Carol and Maree

Sneak Peek Holiday Catalogue

Hello there! I want to share with you all the 'feeding frenzy Stampin' Up! order delivery' excitement that took place this week with myself and two of my team. When the FedEx truck arrived, Glen (the driver, who just happens to be my across the street neighbour!) was met by three demos doing the happy dance...he looked somewhat... perplexed/nervous/amused!

We followed him happily into the house where he deposited the two boxes and backed out of the way (we were coming at him with scissors - they were actually to open the boxes!)

There were lots of oohs and ahs and squeals and mess. And then the three of us picked our favourite product (of the moment) and set to work. Here are our results.

Linda chose this beautiful new dove stamp set and embossed it in gold.

One of everyone's favourites is the new embossing folder!

The design on the dove is beautiful and perfect for rhinestones!

Maree chose this darling stamp set.

And used another terrific embossing folder.

My choice was this stamp set and Designer Series Paper.

Since I decided at the last minute to use brads on the bottom I had to cut their legs off and attach them with glue dots. There's always a solution!

Linda wanted to try out even more new product and so she made this card. Look closely, there are four new products being used!

And because she wanted her bling to match the other colours of her card, she heat embossed the embellishment with gold embossing powder!

I hope you enjoyed sharing in our enthusiasm! You will see the new Holdiay Mini Catalogue on August 1st!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Canada Day to Everyone in this Wonderful country!

I hope you are celebrating and having a good time. If you are new to Canada - WELCOME! If you have been here 'forever', take a moment to appreciate everything that Canada offers.

My family came to Canada from England in 1783. My ancestor's name was John Higgins and he was a farmer from Wiltshire. He and his descendents farmed some little part of Nova Scotia ever since.

I live in Nova Scotia which is the long skinny blue province on the right of the map below.

I have been fortunate to live in three provinces during my life - Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Newfoundland. Plus I have travelled across the country, but haven't made it up north as yet. Did you know that London, England is closer to Halifax, Nova Scotia, than Vancouver, British Columbia (the island off the pink province on the left) is to Halifax, Nova Scotia?! Yes, we're big and beautiful!

Thanks for stopping by! Now Celebrate!!
