I need a vacation

Today is Humor Me Wednesday at Bugaboo and I made a Bugaboo card using Stella Vacation.  I put Glossy Accents on her sunglasses, drinks and beach ball.  On June 15th is Flip Flop day and that is what I made the card in honor of.
My parents finally had their 50th Anniversary Party celebration this past weekend. It was a wonderful and the weather was perfect.  I included some pictures.

the man, the myth, the BROTHER

I made a card for my brother.  He is my only sibling and I adore him greatly.  My parents are having their 50th Anniversary Party this weekend and I am looking forward to special time with him.  This card is for his birthday and Father's Day.  The image is from Bugaboo and the sentiment is from TLC, Create.  The image is this weeks Friday Freebie know as AKV BBQING so grab it while you can.  My brother does a lot of the grilling/cooking when we have a meal at my parents and he does an incredible job.

Coffee a magical substance

I just realized that the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is going on so I figured that I better make a card for this since I have always enjoyed this blog hop.  Naturally, I made a Stella card and kept it simple.
