60th Birthday colour challenge

Hello Crafty friends!
    This weekend I hosted a surprise 60th birthday party for my mom! Im sure there were over 70 people there! I made some cool things for her party ..... check them out!
I made this from an old coffee can...glued 60 pensils to it and the tag sayes "60 and still sharp as ever" with the pencils sharped. I also made a poster for decoration....
And the card ..... I used the cricut to make the roses in the colours gypsy, blush, sorbet and slate. I used these colours because of the colour challenge here
I just Love the card!! I got the inspiration from this card 
Isnt it georgious...check out her blog here  I found this card on pinterest

Born to ride #14

Hello crafty friends!
   Quick card tonight that I made for the atlantic hearts blog sketch #14 :) Here is the sketch to see the blog go here
For my card I used the New pro player paper pack that is available aug.1 :) I also used the stamp set Born to ride since my Dad enjoys riding.

I used a lot of paper piecing to add the red to the slate bike. I Hope I got it mostly right :)

Atlantic hearts sketch #11

Hello crafty friends!
    Well summer is fully in swing here and the kids and I are going to camp sympressca this week :) we are so excited!! I work as the camp nurse but I do have some down time to craft :)
   This weeks sketch #11 
over at I would love for you to play along with us!
My card uses the for always paper pack, glitter paper and some ruby backers twine, it came together sooo fast!
My 15yr old daughter liked my card so much she copied it for her friend that she needed a birthday card for. We made the inside to hold a gift card just by a few score lines and we cut the base from to be 5 1/2 x 12. So here is her card using the sketch :)
 And this is the inside that holds the itunes gift card just perfectly :)
Well we hope you like our cards :) and maybe we have inspired you to make some birthday card gift card holder cards! I think I will make some more myself! 
Happy stamping :)
