Today's card was for another personal challenge with my friend and the theme is Summer. What's more summer than strawberries... Strawberry pie, strawberry ice cream, strawberry shortcake ... mmmm.
So here's how the card was done. Red cardstock was embossed with cuttlebugs polka dot folder. The gingham paper is old DCWV I've had since I first started card making. I layered it on some white and then punched the edge with SU scalloped trim punch. The basket is from Verve Chicks Rule set. I stamped it on some white and colored it with SU markers. The strawberries are from SU tart and tangy. Stamped on red with Real Red ink then I added the white seeds with a marker. I stamped the strawberry again and cut out the top in wasabi. I applied a couple with pop dots and there you go. Oh and the sentiment is verve from the delightful and delicious sets. I love mixing my sets.
Hope you enjoyed today's card and enjoy some fresh sweet strawberries.

My friend sent me some of these adorable images to try out and for the life of me I can't remember the name of them. Bonnie Blue? Bonnie Belle? Oh hopefully she'll post a comment and correct me. Anyway this one was my favorite, she's just too sweet.
So here's what I did for this card. I used bashful blue on the white base and embossed it with the SU folder elegant bouquet. I used a scrap piece of paper from dcwv Posey stack and then took the rest of the color inspiraton from there. You can't see it in the pic but the dp has just a hint of the orange so to set it off I used tangerine tango in small amounts. The image was colored with SU markers and I highlighted the flowers with a little sparkle using stardust stickles. I hope you like it and thanks bunches Sarah for sending me these adorable images.

Today's card was made for Father's Day. This will be given to Dad/Granddads from my son with the sentiment written inside saying "I'm one lucky duck to have you as a Daddy..." I can't take full credit for the idea for this card. When this Verve set was released in March I saw someone make a card using a bingo card and this saying but it didn't have the duck image on it. I looked for the card again to link it but didn't find it so THANK YOU to whoever made the original.
So here's the details... The base was layered with some SU black and the dp layer is from the DCWV glitter stack. The bingo card is by Unity, stamped in stazon and cut out. I stamped the saying and used the SU punches. The duck was stamped on SU So Saffron and then I added some marker details to the image after cutting it out. The sentiment and duck are both up on pop dots.
Have a great day and Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there.

I've said it before and I'll say it again I'm always in need of masculine style cards and since my Many Mower SU set has been collecting dust I thought I'd break it out and make some manly birthday cards. This was super simple to do. The blue layer was some left over cheap paper I picked up at Joann's years ago. I stamped the mower in stazon and colored with SU markers and then layered that panel with some Kraft paper. The grass was cut with the cricut at 2 inches using the paper dolls cart. The clouds are from the Fiskars clear stamp set called Playful Day. This set has some cute images that could be used as accents on several styles of cards.
That's about it for today. Thanks for stopping by. School's almost out then my days will be filled with playing outside with my son.
