came out with the 'Urban Underground' Suite
and the
'Nailed It' Bundle
in the Occasions Catalog!
 
Everything needed to make these Cards!
 
My Father and my Brothers were all involved in
construction in some form or another!
 
My Brothers-in-Law are too, as also their sons,
my nephews.  Mr. Hubster has a few close friends,
and we are giving them cards too!
 
My total count was 22 for Father's Day!
I inly needed 20 for
my Mother's Day Cards!
They are done too!
I addressed all my Mother's Day Cards
last night...all are stamped and ready to post.
Now this is the last of the Father's Day Cards
for me! I also addressed all the Birthday and
Anniversary Cards for the Month of May!
All of those are ready to post too!

I am going up North for 2 weeks!
I will be there from May 10-May 24.
So smack dab in the middle of the month!
Now I won't have to worry about getting all my
Father's Day Cards done when I return home
from my trip...I am so excited to see my beautiful
Grand-daughters, My Dad, My Sisters and Brothers!
We will all be together all 7 of us!
So there will be pics of that!
I am also going to visit a few real good friends!
AND
I'm going to the Cape to get my Lobster Roll!
Hey, Priorities! 😉
 
 
 
 
Until the next Post...Blessings to you ALL!

Posting this card late (for my time schedule!)
I went out Yesterday and bought a Grill for
out on the Deck!
 
I have been craving Burgers on the Grill for
what seems like forever!
 
I told Mr. Hubster I didn't want the biggest and badest!
I just wanted a simple little grill to cook meals on for
Spring/Summer! After all it is just the two of us! 
So we went to Lowe's.
Saw what I wanted, bought it!
oh, and the LP tank (Rhino)!
 
We had burgers for dinner!
Today is date night, going out to dinner.
Tomorrow...BBQ Spareribs on the grill!
Yes, I use the grill as my
Spring/Summer stove!
Down here...I will use it more
than I used a grill up North! 
 
 
Until the next Post...Blessings and Grilling to you ALL! 
 


A Ray of Sunshine for TSOT #317

 
 
 
 
Hello Everyone!
Welcome Back!
 
 
Today's Card is for a
'Sketch' Challenge!
 
 
 
Here is the Challenge!
 
 
 
 
Try Stampin' On Tuesday (TSOT)
"A Ray of Sunshine"
 
 
 
 
 
Here is my Card!
 

 
I love the Sunburst/Starburst Technique for this Card!
 
 
 
 
 
 
Here is the inside of my Card!
 

 
Brought in a couple of those 'rays' for the inside!
 
 
 
 
 
 
Here is my card with it's matching envelope!
 

 
I used my Stampin'Up! Silicone Craft Sheet and
I sponged glue over the DSP strip to adhere to the
envelope...the same can be done for the Starburst/Sunburst
Technique...or you spread glue over a cut panel of cardstock
and layout all the strips on top...let dry and then turn over
and cut off all the excess parts of the strips. That is what I did
next time I will sponge the panel and then attach all the
 strips, and then trim of the excess!
We live and learn!
 
 
 
 
Here are the items used to make my Card:
Unless noted, all items are from Stampin'Up!
 
 
Cardstock:
'Basic Black'-card base, circle layer
'Basic Gray'-front mat, circle layer
'Delightful Dijon'-front and inside panels, circle layer,
and hexagon layer inside under sentiment
'Very Vanilla'-front panel (strips adhered to), inside panel,
greeting hexagon
 
'Urban Underground Specialty DSP'-front, inside and envelope
 
Archival Stampin Pad:
'Basic Black'-greeting, inside sentiment
 
Stamp Sets:
'Nailed It'-greeting
'Suite Sentiments'-inside sentiment
 
Tools:
'Big Shot'-die cutting machine
'Build It Framelits'-greeting and sentiment hexagons
'Layering Circles Framelits'-front circles
 
'Stampin' Dimensionals'-to adhere stacked circles to card front
 
 
 
Here is my Card Again!
 
 
Try this Technique...be careful...it can be addicting!
It is also a great way to use up all those scrap strips!
 
 
 
 
 
Here is Today's 'C' note!
 
 

 
I have used this one before...snerk! Just love that face!
 
 
 
Until the next Post...Blessings and Happy Friday to you ALL!
