Hey All! Happy Hump Day! I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July weekend. I took the boys and my Mom and her dog Chunk to the local fireworks here in Carmel. They were spectacular. The boys haven't ever been that close to fireworks before. When they started with these huge BOOMS, Gunther crawled in my lap and Shotsy went behind me and leaned up against my back. Eventually, they got bored and sprawled out on the grass. Such goofy dogs! LOL
This post is going to be picture heavy, so you'll have lots to look at. I wanted to share with you a note card set that I've made. Here is a pic of each of the cards in the set:
Here is the box I made to hold the set:
The stamp set I used for this set is by Stampendous. I love these bright colors. I was just going to do one of my standard note card holders, but this morning when I went to SCS, they had this box featured for the project of the week. The box is super easy to make. You can find the tutorial here: BOX TUTORIAL. There is a written tutorial as well as a video tutorial. I used Bazzill card stock for this project. I stamped the fruit images with Versamark ink then embossed it with clear ep. I added crystal glitter around each fruit to give it a "sugared" look. I then cut each out and placed it on the card with a dimensional. The base card is kraft card stock.
My next project is not a card but something for the boys. It falls under the altered category. Here is a pic of the project:
These are wooden letters with little metal hook thingies attached to the bottom. I got them at Michael's for $1 each. I used Staz-On black ink to stamp the bones and paws on the surface. These make great leash holders for the boys. I also made one for my Mom's dog Chunk.
Something really weird happened last week. A beautiful hot air balloon made an emergency landing right next to my house in the middle of the street. I grabbed my camera and took these pics:
Look at it right there at my house!!!
Here they are deflating it. One eye witness said that before it landed there by my house, it hit the roof of the house across the street before landing. No one was hurt, but the guy operating the balloon was acting like that was where he was intending to land. Yeah, right. But it made for an interesting evening.
And since we are talking about my house, I wanted to share a pic of the front of it with all of my flowers blooming. Here it is:
I've never had this many flowers in bloom before! I HATE gardening, but for some reason the flowers are doing it to spite me! LOL Thanks for indulging me on this. But this is just not something I see every year!
OK, that's it for now. I've bored you enough! LOL Thanks for taking time to look. I'm working on all kinds of new projects so next Wednesday's post will have lots more to show you. I'll be stopping by all of your blogs in the next couple of days. As always, can't wait to see what you've been doing. I hope all is well in your world!
DON'T FORGET THE PIC OF THE WEEK BELOW!!! I got a great shot of a wonderful turtle in a pond at a local park the other day. I was so excited to see how well the pic turned out.
Hugs to all of you!
