Stars and Stripes

We had a lovely day yesterday, as it was a Quebec holiday (Saint Jean Baptiste day), Des was off and we had friends over for a bbq.  It was a beautiful hot day!! Loved it!!!  The kids played, while we lounged around the deck sipping margaritas and daquiris. We coooked up the steaks and grilled garlic potatoes,  and our friends brought a spinach, apple and roasted pecan salad, and a yummy peach crisp!!   Mmmm, we had a wonderful day and after the kids were in bed we had a good game of Settlers of Catan.   It was a real summer fun kind of day!  I’m already looking forward to the next time!!

We have something exciting going on at Crafty Creations Challenges!!!   We have put out an open DESIGN TEAM CALL for 2 new members!!   We are really looking forward to seeing everyone’s creations and will be selecting our new team members by August 1st!   So, if you are interested, be sure to stop by and play in the challenges and add DTC to your links for us, so we will be able to see your work and know that you want to join us!!   All the details are posted HERE.

Stars and stripes is the theme of our Crafty Creations Challenge this week!  Ali set the challenge and has said that it can be stars or stripes, and it need not necessarily be patriotic.  Now, I’m sure we will see lots of patriotic cards and creations this week, since July 4th is so near and in my case July 1st for Canada day… But I decided to go with, yes…another birthday card!  Heehee. Well, I do have to get these done after all!  This is number 9, 6 more to go!

IMG_8718 Birthday Collage w 30

This has a masculine feel to it I think…simple but elegant too…the stamp is a Hero Arts happy birthday collage block I stamped in Choc. chip on Very Vanilla.   The striped paper is from K& Company, Classic K Margo collection.   I added the scallop strip down the side in kraft cs and adhered green rhinestones halfway down, then I finished it off with a knotted choc. chip ribbon.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!  You know I love your company!!
