Dandelion Wishes

Dandelion Wishes.
When I saw this Stamp Set it was a must have. And here’s the reason. 
I belong to a Facebook page called C.F.B Base Brats and the mascot for CFB Base Brats is the Dandelion. Cause you leave a little of you were ever you go. Most of us Brats (either kids or members of the services) have move every three to four years. Some have move for one end of the country to the other. Some all over the world. For me my Dad was in the RCAF. I was born in Chatham New Brunswick. And when I was six Dad was posted to Comox B.C. He has since retired and is now living in Penticton B.C.
My husbands  first posting was to Comox and of course that’s where I meet him. 
 He whisked me away. First to Moose Jaw, where we were married and our first son Willem was born. 
Then it was off to Colorado Springs CO.  Where Our baby, Kiefer was born. 
We spent four year there before they sent us to CFB Borden.
Borden was our longest posting. We were ther for seven years. Ric took his commission there. 
And his first posting as a commission officer was downtown Cold Lake Alberta. 
Where’s Cold Lake! It’s at the end of highway 28.
Then it was off the Winnipeg MB for six years. We loved Winnipeg. Loved it so much we came back after four years in North Bay. 
And we did this all in 27 wonderful years. 
And this wonderful journey will be coming to an end in about a year. 
I’m doing Card Class June 19;at the MFRC (Military Family Resource Centre) here in Winnipeg and this is one of the four cards we’ll be doing. So if you’re interested in attending let me
know and I’ll add you to list.

This was a super easy card simple card to make. Here’s how I did it. 
The base is a piece of thick Whisper White cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4
You’re going to need a piece of Gray Granite that measures 5 1/4 x 4. 
And a piece of whisper white 5x 3 3/4.
Stamp your images using the Gray Granite ink. 
Easy Peasy.

CASE-ing Tuesday #151

CASE-ing Tuesday #151
Here’s my take on this weeks card. 
Totally loving the Tufted embossing folder. It adds so much detail. I was going to use Rhinestones to add a bit of bling but that would of been a lot of rhinestones. So I  improvised by using the Wink of Stella. Love how it turned out. .

It was such a fast and easy card. The Blends are wonderful to colour ribbon to match your paper. I just took the Blends and ran it over the ribbon to give it a bit of colour. 
Thanks for stopping by.

CASE-ing Tuesday #148

“Love you Still”

Love the sentiments in this set. It sooo sad it’s retiring May 31st.
Don’t ya think this would make a Perfect Anniversary Card with the sentiment?
And that’s what I’m going to use it for.
Ric and I will be celebrating our 29th Anniversary in July.
WOW we’re did the time go. 
This year we won’t be together as he will still be deployed. 
So it’s going into my carry on bag. Why you ask!
Cause he’s taking me to Cyprus this weekend 
We’re meeting in London then traveling down. 
So excited. We’ll be there for 9 wonderful days.
And you know what! I didn’t plan any of this trip. Ric did it all. 
It’s going to be a wonderful time. 

Thanks for stopping by. 
Want to see pictures of our trip. I’ll be posting on my Facebook page while we’re there.

CASE-Ing Tuesday # 147

CASE-ing Tuesday # 147
 Here’s my version of the casing Tuesday #147.
 The  Southern Serenade stamp set is one of my favorites. 
 So what do you think of the colour combination and that little add of bling.
 Oh my gray and pink what a combination. 

There is a little bit of fussy cutting here with the flowers. Then Coloured with wink of Stella.
And added to the card using  dimensionals.
Grabbed a little bling with the silver thread and a few jewels.

CASE-ing Tuesday #146 Birthday Blooms

 What a coincidence!
 This weeks CASE-ing card and technique we’re using for club uses the same stamp!
 Sad part about this is the stamp is retiring.
At club I like to teach the girls different techniques. So this month it’s all about the vellum.
The girls are going to learn how to heat emboss onto vellum, which I’ve done here. Along with embossing with a embossing folder and big shot. And using vellum as an accent. 
Here’s hoping they enjoy the techniques. 
Wanting to see how I did this Technique. I’ll be doing a Facebook live on Wednesday May 9 at 3 pm central time on my Facebook page.
Hoping to see ya then. 
Here’s the products I used.
