Happy Father's Day to my Dad!

My Father, Ceasar Rizzo, was the best Dad anyone could ask for. We had 3 apple trees in our back yard and Dad put a pretty double-sided swing under one of the trees. We would swing all Summer long and eat apples and vegetables from the garden. He loved to swing and so do I. I could fill a book with the wonderful things he did for me, my mother and my brother. We loved him and he adored us. I miss Him. Happy Father's day in Heaven, Ceasar-roo xoxo

Pretty flowers and butterflies

The challenge at Muse Card Club this week is a lovely card (see below) made by Tracey McNeely.  Taking an idea from Tracey's card, I used kraft paper and pink flowers with green leaves.  The stamps I used are from Craft Consortium and it's a lovely collection of stamps called wildflower Meadow.

Here's Tracey's card:

Thanks for stopping by today :)

Pink Stickeroos

I've come across Penny Black Stickeroos and I just love them, the flower and leaves on my card are made with them.

I'm adding my card to the challenge this week at Fusion, here's the inspiration photo:
I went with the sketch for the challenge, although the pretty cupcakes have pink flowers too.

Happy you stopped by today :)

Case this Sketch using Hero Arts stamps

I have saved quite a few of my older stamps and this week I've used a few to make a card.  When I saw the challenge this week at Case This Sketch I had this idea for a card right away and it just so happened I had stamps that fit well together.  I used an older background stamp from Hero Arts for the circle cut paper piece and an older butterfly/dragonfly wood block stamp set to make the butterfly.

Here's the sketch:

Happy you stopped by today :)
