St Patrick's Day in July!

Hope everyone has a great weekend! My hubby turns 50 tomorrow. We took him out to eat tonight and tomorrow we are taking him to a Major League baseball game so I thought I would make a card tonight since I have to work Sunday. I made this card using the Midnight Madness Sketch #64 and the Play Date Cafe #40-black, white and a splash of green. I love this Irish Blessing by My Sentiments Exactly. I embossed it with green embossing powder. I used pop dots to make it stand out. I added pearls, ribbon and shamrock buttons. Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas in July

I was refraining from doing a Christmas in July card because I am in the Summer/Flower mode but when the Penny Black had a challenge, I had to do one! I created this card for 4 challenges

Penny Black Challenge #111-Christmas in July
Play Date Cafe #39-black, white, brown and grey
Basic Grey #25-Stitching
Truly Scrumpt1ous Challenge #37

This Penny Black image was colored with Copic markers. The saying is Verve that is embossed with Pewter embossing powder. The papers are Basic Grey-Granola and I used a Hero Arts stitch stamp around them. I ran the white strip through the snowflake Cuttlebug folder. I added brads and black pearls. I am getting ready to go out in the heat and mow. I will dream that it is Christmas and snowing while I mow! Thanks for stopping by!

The movie for inspiration at the Cinema Saturday Movie Challenge #86 is Bend it Like Beckam. This is a good movie. It is about a girl from India who follows her dream to play soccer against her parents wishes. I found this saying which I thought fit this movie. I printed it from the computer. You are supposed to make a card of a shape other than the standard so I made a star card. I got the pattern from The Cutting Cafe. The swirls are from Inkadinkado. I stamped in red for the front and embossed white for the inside to the card. The saying is Hero Arts. I added red bling and stars. I used the colors required for the Play Date Cafe #36-red, white and pink. Thanks for stopping by!
