June has been so much fun! It truly has. We have already been to several pool parties, splash pad play-dates and it has been so fun. And all that outside fun equals no inside fun. So honestly I have not one single crafty thing to share with you today. But I do have 2 things coming up that I'm going to be working on. The first is a birthday card for hubby and the second is 4th of July mantel decor. I really want it to be nice. And so I plan to start that soon. So unitl next time, try to stay cool. I surely have been trying to espeially with 110 plus degree weaher. Smiles, Tracy

Ferris Wheel Birthday

I enjoy making cards. I truly do. I think personally out of all the crafts that I do, card making is my "fun" thing. There isn't one obligation to making cards to me. And so that is why I tend to try new things or even go the extra on making them. 

Most of my cards are something that starts out as an idea of something that I want to try or do. But sometimes my ideas become too much and I really take way too long to make one card. Last night after working on an idea for the Lawn Fawn admit one stamp set; I decided that the original idea that I had to make the card should really wait until I figure out exactly how I can make the ferris wheel turn. Not wobble but actually turn. But until then, here is the finished card that I completed.

Oh I used the polaroid diecut by Quickutz again. Mostly because I have had it since it was released and I have only used it 3 times. This being the 3rd. So I'm looking for ways to use it other than the tradional way in order to want to use it. Although I do have a scrapbook page planned (no photos taken yet) where I use it as a polaroid.

The rest of the supplies:
Balloon diecuts- BossKut die
pinking circle-Spellbinders
Scolloped border-Martha Stewart
Bakers Twine-Unknown
Happy Bday stamp-Studio G
Copic Markers-
Patterned papers- Echo Park, WRMK

Well I was looking through photos on my camera and realized that I had never shared the photos of  my Mom's day cards and mantel, and that the one photo I had of the mantel with the flowers on it that I got was way to blurry.

I am ok with it being on a scrapbooking page but I guess it wouldn't look right if I shared it on here. But here is one of the cards and framed Mother saying from my family.
And also since I was going over photos I decided that I should show off the cards that I made with twine. I like these cards but they didn't turn out how I imagined that they would so I am going to put this one in my stash and remake the card that I imagined. But this is a really simple but cute card. I do like it now that I look at it but I really do want to play around with the design and add a few embossed clouds and such. Hopefully when I start making the new card I won't get distracted by the girls and them wanting me to sew them a rainbow too. Well I'm off to plan our Dad's day mantel.
