Chair Card

This is a card I made the other day with some new patterned paper that I found at a garage sale. She was cleaning out her stash - her loss was my gain! I really love this one because it has a chair on it. The image is from SU! and it is a 6x6 square card.

BBQ B-Day Card

I made this card for my brother for his birthday. He is the grilling king.

The sketch is based on Splitcoaststampers sketch challenge 185 Here is a link:
I used some old Creative Memories plaid paper and stamps from a set by Fiskars called Celebrate.

Paper Crafts Magazine Gals

On Saturday I met up with ladies that I do card swaps with on the Paper Crafts Magazine website. We were all from MN & WI and we met up in Blaine at Pretty in Ink. We all brought a project to demo with a new technique and brought enough stuff for all of us to do one. It was really fun and I learned a lot of new techniques that I might not have ever tried.
We did a waterfall card, a Halloween card with a tricky fold, a vellum cup card(my demo), a pop-up flower pot card, a butterfly resist card with a brayer & a kaleidoscope ink pad, a hanging monkey card and my first ever ATC!. I even won a prize in a drawing that one of the ladies had. Thanks Cindy!

We are planning on getting together again soon. Above are the projects we did ^

Como Zoo & Gardens

We went to Como Zoo a couple of weeks ago & took TONS of photos. We had such a fun day! I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a day at the zoo so much. We took a lot of photos of plants and flowers. They also had the butterfly exhibit open which we had never seen before.

Here are some of my favs.

4th of July

Here are some of the photos from the 4th of July. We were up by St Cloud this past weekend and had lots of fun! We went to a parade, played games & did a bunch of swimming & tubing. We did make it to see some fireworks too.
