Paw Patrol Ombre

Saturday is my youngest grandson's birthday.  Zander is in love with Paw Patrol and I thought this week's technique called Ombre Frames would be perfect for the German Shepherd, Chase! I thought that it would be fun to have Chase popping out of the frame.  I cut the inside a little off center to accommodate the shield. Found a '6' already cut out for the front and some clipart for the dog and shield.  I hope that Z loves it!

In April my car club celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the Ford Mustang by holding an event to break two Guinness World Records.  One for the most Fords in a parade and the other for the Most Ford Mustangs in a parade.

Well.........Guinness has responded to our documentation and it is official........WE HAVE ESTABLISHED TWO NEW WORLD RECORDS!!!!!!   This is really BIG news!! 

We had a total of 829 Fords in our parade and a total of 766 Mustangs.

Yippee!!!!   Yippee for all the participants and Yippee for Mt Hood Mustangs and Fords Club for undertaking this HUGE project!!

Cross Stitch

Do any of you cross stitch.  I have a LOT of aida cloth and lovely patterns for flowers, Christmas and more.   My eyes just can't do this small work anymore.  If you think you might be interested, let me know and I'll send you a list of everything and make you a good deal!

Crinkled Retirement

Here is a card I made using the technique of the week from Technique Junkies.  This is such a fun and easy technique.  As a designer, I get to do the techniques about 6 weeks before you do but I hadn't tried this one yet.  If you haven't given it a try, you really must!  The image is from Art Impressions and the words are Stampin Up.  I made this for a dear friend who just retired.  The image is colored with copics.  As you can see I also used Out of the box technique too!  Enjoy!

Wanna Come?

Next Tuesday, July 8th, at Main Street Stamp and Stationery store in Tigard, Oregon, I'll be instructing to do the birthday set below.  The class will be from 6pm to 8pm.  You'll make the card, the tag and the darling little votive birthday cake.  Isn't that birthday cake darling?!    You'd need to bring your favorite adhesive, plus some glue dots, and your favorite watercolor medium.  I used Tim Holtz's Distress markers and a water brush to color the roses in the sample.   All the rest of the supplies will be provided.  Class cost is $15.  Hope to see you there!
