Thanks! - H2H Challenges

Today I have a thank you card that I made for a gentleman in my families life who recently was honoured for 15 years of volunteer service in our community and province and he came into our life through his volunteer work and has had a significant role in our lives and the lives of our wee ones. He drives our wee ones to various appointments that we are not able to attend with them. And that is why there are cars on this thank you card. Our volunteer driver has a red mini van but I do not have a mini van stamp but I do have this one and it just felt perfect for him. He is a wonderful caring man who takes wonderful care of not just our girls but many children.

Now onto the card! Our drivers van is red so of course I had to make it red to pop off the card. The challenge this week at Heart 2 Heart challenges the challenge is stamped backgrounds. I used a retired stamp of the month called Long Ride Home.



Below is a close up of the background stamping with the bits of colour pops I added in.


Products Used:

Paper:
- Ruby, Sapphire, and White Daisy card stock

Ink:
- Saffron, Sapphire, and Black

Embellishments:
- Black and White Dots
- Whisper Extra thick twine

Happy Hump Day! Day 3 of projects...I am so on a roll this week! It is truly amazing how productive you can be when you have a reliable working computer! I finally upgraded my computer after watching my Mac die a slow and painful death, it is not dead yet but it is not doing well and could be any day now so before I loose everything, it is time to switch over. I knew I hated working with it with all of its issues but I can not believe how quickly I can do things again, it is wonderful!

Any hoots, onto the project. I have a card for you today, this is also from my Dreamin' Big workshop this month. And can I just say...I love this paper? he he he! Ok ok I know I say that ALL the time...but I am being honest, I do love it!


Ok....onto the card now!

Play like no one is watching - BTF Challenges

Hi again...two days in a row that I have new art for you. Today I bring you my design team work and a layout I did for my Dreamin' Big workshop.

The title of the layout goes across the two pages and is "Play like no one is watching" which is a play on the popular saying of Dance like no one is watching. I just love watching my kids play and there are many times they are busy playing and creating away in the basement while I am working on my CTMH projects and they think I am working but I am really watching and listening to them and are amazed by their creativity and talents...and they have no idea just how closely I am paying attention!



I also know my customers all have kids and grand kids that they scrapbook so this play theme worked well for all of us. I am sorry for the lack of pictures, due to some privacy concerns, I do not post pictures of my girls who will ultimately end up on this layout.

Products Used:

Paper:
- Dreamin' Big
- Saffron, Glacier, Poppy, Black, and White Daisy card stock

Embellishments:
- Dreamin' Big sequins

Stamps:
- D1702- Capture this
Ink:
- Black and Poppy

Silhouette Cameo Cuts:
- The title was cut using some fonts but I do not recall; I will be more detailed next time!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my project, I hope you like it and I always welcome feedback so I can make my workshops and projects better!

Until next time, happy scrapping!
Brandi

I love that they make my job so much easier.
