Sebastian Inlet State Park

Just got home from a camping trip to Sebastian Inlet State Park.   We had a camping spot right on the water with some awesome views.  This is a fabulous place.  Spent hours watching the dolphins swim by.  We already have a return trip planned.

Puppy Love Flipper Pyramage Card

There's a new challenge started today at Paper Creator.  The theme is "Love is in the air".  
Hope you can join us.  The prize is a gift certificate to the Paper Creator store.


I created this card for my neighbor.  She has a little white dog who is best friends with our mini poodle.  I am sure she will smile when she see's this.  To create my flipper card,  I used fun kit called Puppy Love Flipper Pyramage Card Kit from the Paper Creator store.  


Opened all the pieces in Silhouette Studio and resized them to fit a 5 inch square card base.   Printed all the pieces and added a saying on the label.  Cut them out and attached with narrow double sided tape at the top of each layer.  Also cut out the matching envelope.  If you plan to place an order at the Paper Creator store,  please enter code Deloris to save 20% off the total.

Thanks So Much - Pop Out Card

Ooh La La Creations has a new challenge starting today.  The challenge theme is "Thank You". 
I created my pop up style card using a lovely Tulip image from the Ooh La La Creations CD called the Shawn Jenkins Collection.  I cut out all the pieces with my Silhouette Cameo using the cut files shown in the photos below.  I found them at the Silhouette store.  I did make one change as I converted the Thanks So Much saying to print instead of having the letters cut out from the banner.

Greetings from Great Dunes Beach at Jekyll Island Georgia

We decided to get away for a few days before the next round of remodeling starts on our house. We are camping in Georgia and spent some time at the fabulous Great Dunes Beach at Jekyll Island.  Weather has been perfect in the low 70's and not many people on the beach.  They allow dogs so we were able to take our little poodle with us.  Finished off our day at the beach by stopping for ice cream at the Dairy Queen at the entrance to the park.  They even gave us a little bit of ice cream in a cup for our dog so he enjoyed the outing too.  Sorry the pictures don't do it justice as I took them with my cell phone.  It's absolutely gorgeous here and truly a little piece of heaven.

Thinking of you easel card


Hope you can join us for the new challenge starting today at Ooh La La Creations.  The challenge theme is Feminine.  

I created my card using a lovely image and papers from the Shawn Jenkins Collection CD which is available at the Ooh La La Creations store. 



I designed the easel card in Silhouette Studio DE using a frame file that I altered to make the base and layers.  Cut out all the pieces with my Cameo.  Added extra layers under the saying and image to give it a bit more dimension.  Attached the main image to card base with pop dots.  Also printed a extra image and cut out the tiny butterfly and flower.
