Super Dad- Humor Me Wednesday

Happy Wednesday to you!  I have a card I made for my son to give to my husband for Father's Day.  The kids have always called him Super Dad, so naturally when Bugaboo had this image I had to snatch it up.  I often call my hubby Super Man because he has that cute little curl on above his eye and he has the strength and character of him too.  Over at Catch The Bug Challenge Blog the design team has a lot of inspiration for you themed Humor Me Wednesday.  We all could use a good laugh mid week... so check it out.



I’m curious who is your real life super hero? 


Products used:  white/black/yellow card stock, Echo Park Super Hero paper pack and sticker sheet, Copic Markers, starburst die, tag die, Memento Ink Danube Blue, Hero Arts Happy Father's Day Sentiment stamp, Mrs Sparkle Polka dot embossing folders, and Bugaboo, Super Dad

You Make Things Beautiful

Hello!  Happy Friday to you!  I have a cute little card that I sent to some crafty friends in my facebook world.  I made it from the May 2019 My Hero Arts Kit which was geared toward all kinds of crafts.  I love these kits because they come with a lot of dies, 6x9 stamp set, paper, and embellishments.  You really couldn't ask for a better value, and the kits are great EVERY TIME!

This was a clean and simple for me, but I had fun making it.  I hope you like it too!


Products used:  white/pool card stock, Distress Oxide ink (worn lipstick/tumbled glass/cracked pistachio), Versafine ink, black and white baker's twine, iridescent sequins, glossy accents,  My Hero Arts Kit of Month May 2019 stamps and dies.

The Beauty of Wings

Hello there!  I hope you are having a good day! I am starting to learn that there is beauty in having wings and only when you are free can you grow and live in peace.   My family have been going through a lot of changes and we are finding that the things that we thought were so IMPORTANT are miniscule in the scheme of the universe.  My hubby lives by the motto "if you won't remember it or care about it in a year, don't get worked up by it!"  Gosh he is so smart!  I married him because he grounds me and I give him wings lol. 

Today's card is a CAS for me (anyways)and designed for Challenge #392 over at Crafty Creations Challenges.  Our generous sponsor is Morgan's Artworld where the prize will be the same 3 images that design team inspired your with.   I made a background by swiping distress oxides across watercolor paper and then spritzing with water and heat setting.  I colored the butterflies with copic markers, stamped my sentiment and added a few sequins.  Even though this is a simple card, I find it stunning!  I hope you do too?  My prayer for you is that you metamorphasize into your butterfly and find your wings!

Products used:  white cardstock, Canson xl water color paper, Distress Oxide Ink ripe persimmon/mustard seed/dried marigold/abondoned coral, Copic markers, gold irridescent sequins, Versafine Onyx black ink, bertech foam tape, art glitter glue, Brother cut n scan, Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Perspective stamp set, and  F wings Morgan's Artworld Digital Store
