With Loads of Love
I made this card for my DH for Father's Day with one of the first sets of stamps that I ever bought from SU. Over the past few years I have used it often. I bought two others sets to go with this one and used the Loads of Fun with this for the trailer. I had so much fun making this. The coloring made me feel like a little kid again. I think that is one of the reasons I love making cards. I get to color.
The paper is from basic grey. I got to use my favorite tools of all time the Cuttlebug and nestabilities. I don't make too many cards since I bought the nestabilities that I don't use them on. I really like the look of it.
Well tomorrow is Friday again. I must say that I found this week went by pretty quickly. I hope it slows down for the weekend.
Enjoy your weekend!

I bought this stamp a little while ago when me and my friend Kelly placed an order with Whipper Snapper. God love Kelly as she always asks me if I would like to place and order with her so we can save on the shipping. Works out well for both of us. We both love their stamps. This stamp is from their new spring collection and it is called “Kroner”. I needed some more masculine stamps and this one fit the bill perfectly. I do have others but I have not put them to the ink yet. I am hoping to really soon.
I made this card for my Dad for Fathers Day. It worked out so well. I got to use my favorite SU template the “Top” Note” it if one of my favorites. It is just so versatile.
The paper is from basic grey and it is colored with Copic markers. They definitely are my favorite coloring medium for awhile now. Before I got these I used to love my watercolored crayons but I have to say that the copics are just so nice and bright.
Just a short note tonight as I haven't even had supper yet and it is almost 10:00. DH is in the kitchen as we speak making us supper. God love him.
Will be back tomorrow night with another Father's Day card to show you. One that I made for my DH using one of my favorite and first SU sets Loads of Love.
Hope you all are enjoying your evening.

I am sorry that I haven't been back in awhile but I have been dealing with some things. I have been having alot of problem with numbness in my left arm. I find the more I use it the worse it gets. I had this before and it went away. I am really hoping that this time it will just go away also.
I hope you all are enjoying your summer. For us her in Newfoundland we really thought that the weather was improving Easter time as the temperatures were way above normal but it seems lately the only thing you can say about the weather is that it just sucks. We all long for such a nice summer when we can get together with friends and have bbq's etc and maybe even go for a nice walk. Hopefully before the summer is over we will get some weather that we can enjoy. I just hate being stuck inside. We do enough of that in the winter. Anyway, enough about the crappy weather. .
I bought this set at Saleabration time. This is the first time that I got to use it. I really like how the paper matches the stamp set. So nice when you can get things for free. I just love that. I made this card as a thank you card to give to my Dad for doing something really special for us . He really like it and I got a chance to do a bit more stamping as well. I actually got up on Father's Day at 7:20 in the morning and never came out of my stamproom until 11:30. I made three cards. Amazing how quickly time goes when you are working on cards. This is also the first time that I used the in color paper from SU. I really like them. I will be back again tomorrow with the first of two Father's Day cards that I made for my Dad and DH.
Enjoy your day !
