Whipper Snapper stamps- another fun card

Just wanted to pop on and share another of my Whipper Snapper creations. Isn't this little cutie just adorable! I am such a sucker for critter stamps. I coloured him up with my copics of course and used my fave colour purple as my inspiration. 

I hope you are all having a fab Saturday. We are having a garage sale today so I am off to convince people they need to take my stuff to their home to help reduce the clutter in mine lol!!

Cheers, Andrea

High Hopes Stamps is having fun in the sun...

I hope you are all having an amazing summer so far! I have to say we have had some awesome weather here and I have even put on a swimsuit for the first time in years lol. Most days are a perfect mix of heat with warm evenings making even a stay indoors girl like me take my cuppa outside to enjoy the colours and sounds of Summer.

High Hopes Stamps is back with a challenge and it is to Have Fun In The Sun. Not hard to find inspiration at all, just have to look out a window! In honour of my BIL's birthday today I have coloured up Surf Scene Dudley. Now I needed to make the card without any frills or bling for my BIL so I decided to make it postcard style. I think he will like it!

To read the full rules about how to play along with us and win some free rubber pop on over to the HHS challenge blog but you may want to bring a cold drink before feasting your eyes on all the hot summer fun!

Cheers, Andi

An oldie but a goodie- Happy Canada Day!!!!

I made this card and shared it for last year's Canada Day but since I love it here it is again! Just like summer TV today is a rerun hee hee! I used High Hopes Team Canada stamp and their Happy Canada Day sentiment. 

Even though I have nothing special planned for myself today except spending it in my craftroom (family is out of town celebrating) I feel like there is a happy energy all around. I am a VERY proud Canadian and I am so happy that I was born in this incredible Country. What I also love is that I can just sit outside tonight and all around me in the sky will be incredible fireworks brightening the night sky celebrating how lucky we are to be Canadian. 

I also wanted to share that one of my fave blogs to visit Pretty Pressings by Claudia Rose is having a Christmas in July blog candy offering. Pop on over to check it out and wish her all the best as she is recovering from surgery. I encourage you to take some time to look around at her past posts- holy carp eye candy! Her creations blow my mind! If you scroll down the right hand side of her blog to her categories she has 71 tutorials she shared! Love that!

I would love to hear about your Canada celebration today so feel free to leave me a comment. Maybe you will give me an idea as to how we will celebrate next year lol!! And don't forget to be safe!

Cheers Hosers! (another dose of Canadiana hee hee) Andi
