I’m a busy little beaver
Get your heads out of the gutter and stop thinking of Leslie Nielsen from Naked Gun and realize I am talking about my scrapbook. Oh, I’m not showing that yet as it’s not done yet and has been taking up a lot of my time, but I have been making some cards which I am showcasing 2 here today.
Alcohol inks, sun stamp, Red dye ink and Red sparkle embossing powder, cuddlebug, embossing folder, Sizzex machine, corner cut outs, crystals

Cute Card Thursday-No Patterned paper
My poor friend was told by his partner that he is done with him and no longer wants to be with him. In less than 2 years, the marriage has ended and in a bad way because when my friend came home from his 3 day tour, a nasty note was left with the wedding ring and a sticky note saying to not try to find him. 2 weeks later, my dear friend was served with lawyer papers demanding half the condo... Oh boy, let the games begin! I decided to create this card for my friend who deserves a little sunshine so what better way than to create summer colours with the fun sun. I dabbed alcohol inks on glossy white paper in nice warm colours and set it aside. I took dye ink pads and placed the colour on craft wipeable sheet, spritzed water on it and placed a basic white papercard onto it to get some nice yellow, golden and orange colour onto the paper. I dried it a bit and dipped it again and then let it completely dry before I stamped and embossed the sun unto it. I fussy cut it out and pieced everything together. I took the border dye cut with the burgandy paper on top and ran it through the sizzex machine to get the border cuts, added some bling and we are done.
Pink shimmer sheer fabric, flower stamp, gold dye ink stamp and gold embossing powder, pastel powders, scissors, ribbon, scizzex machine, dye cut, cuddlebug machine, embossing folder, friend stamp. Glue, glue dots, pop up dots, crystals, pearls

This card is for my friend’s birthday who loves pink so I used the colour and made it girlie. Those glue dots can be a pain to work with but they work well when you add fabric to a card like I did here. I stamped, embossed and coloured the flowers, that I have had for 6 years, in pastel colours, fuzzy cut them out and stamped it again but just coloured the middle flower and cut that out. I used the pop up dots to raise the flower and, raise the middle flower, again. I put the ribbon around the image, added the dye cut image with the word, friend, on it and that’s it. Since Las Vegas is called a sinful town, it's kind of funny that swarms of locusts have descended on this city.
Hope you like my little creativity
Now a couple of picture from our trip to Quebec.
