A Little Smile-June Paper Pumpkin alternate

I am really loving the June Paper Pumpkin kit!  I made 2 cards for my grandaughter's bus drivers following the kit directions.  I have decided to make some full cards using the supplies in the kit plus other current SU items.
The palm tree theme and beach feel to this kit makes me Smile for sure.  I love the tropical feel (I grew up in Africa!) and some of my family live in Florida (on the Gulf of Mexico!).  So for me it is just perfect........

I used many of the supplies from the kit (June Paper Pumpkin - A Little Smile) and added some other items including cardstock, embossing folders, other framelits.  What do you think?

Happy Birthday Julia!

Following the theme for Julia's birthday I made her a birthday card for her "birth-day" in mid June.  We always get together as a family and have supper and cake on the real day.  I will also show you a picture of her cake that her Mum and I made!  It was actually 2 cakes we made! One plus some of the smaller one were consumed at the party.

The 2 Pineapple Birthday Cakes!
Hula costume for her party 

The Hula girl image was a free download I found online.  I just had to make it small enough to fit on the card.

Julia's 3rd Birthday Invitations

My youngest grandaughter, Julia chose a "Luau" theme for her 3rd Birthday Party and again Grandma made her invitations.  I made them in May for a June birthday party.
She told me that I needed to use her favourite colour "blue".
I decided to make my own pattern on cardboard and felt I needed to make it to fit into a regular sized envelope for ease in mailing. I also wanted to be able to print the party information on the inside so it needed to be a folded card.

This is what I came up with in 2 colour combinations:

I felt the front was too plain with not enought colour so added the heel in DSP.  The flowers were inked up in Balmy Blue and then I added some Pacific Point on the edges with a sponge dauber.  A little bit of Wink of Stella and rhinestone in the centre.finished them off!

A Good Man

I used this class as part of my Masculine card class and found that this new stamp set has amazing  images and also words/sentiments.
The way that I coloured this reminds me of many years ago when our daughter was little and being held by her Dad (my husband of more than 40 years!).  Dad's and daughters have a special bond (as I did with my father).
The simplicity of the card makes the image the focal point.

Happy Father's Day

Many Canadians observe Father’s Day on the third Sunday of June. It is a day for people to show their appreciation for fathers and father figures. Father figures may include stepfathers, fathers-in-law, guardians (eg. foster parents), and family friends.

(Father's Day is a celebration honoring fathers and celebrating fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society.) A special wish for those fathers who are not with us but still in our hearts and thoughts.

This is the card that I made for my husband who is a wonderful Dad to our 3 adult children...1 daughter and 2 sons and 2 grandaughters for Father's Day.
This is a Pull Tab Pop-Up card that was inspired by Queen B Creations.

The bottom of the pulled up card                              This is with the tab pulled up viewed from the
looks like this:                                                            front:
