Beetle to the Rescue!

This week on one of my adventures to Costco, I did something that was really silly. I was having rather a bad day and then… I locked my keys in the car along with my purse and cell phone. What a disaster… I can’t believe that I did that… really. I quickly ran around the car trying all the doors even the trunk but no luck, locked nice and tight. A little bit of panic set in and then I thought  I’d go to the tire center, maybe someone there can help me. No one to be found, I can hear them in the back but still no one comes out, now what???

I start walking back to my car when a yellow VW Beetle drives into the same aisle as me only 2 spots over… I wonder if they can help? So I made my way over and asked if they happen to have the number to the VW line (which is in the owners manual/which is in the locked car). Unfortunately they didn’t have the book in the car but they were members of BCAA.

Next thing I knew she was on the phone, calling them to help open my car. I can’t believe that they did that for me, I was so shocked and so thankful for their kindness. I wanted to repay them but they said it was fine and that they were glad they could help. It’s nice to know that there are still people out there that would help someone if they needed it and ask nothing in return.

I wanted to make them a Thank you card, so after I got into my car I wrote a quick note on a napkin, gave her my blog address and stuck it under the windshield blade. Hope they get a chance to see it, because I truly appreciate their generosity that day.

I made a different type of card this time, I made a twisted easel card.

I stamped my Imaginisce Vroom stamp in Memento Dandelion ink and then colored in with a yellow Copic.  I then stamped Thank you from the Pink By Design Here Comes the Bride stamp set. I added some Lemon Divine Twine and used the Beep Beep Cuttlebug folder for the tire tracks.

I used my Spellbinder’s Ovals and Scalloped Ovals and embossed the front sentiment. It is from the My Favorite Kind stamp set by Pink By Design. The inside sentiment is a stamp from Stampin’ Up.

So if you read this – here’s a BIG THANK YOU from me to you!

I will also be linking this to the Sarah Hamer’s Link Up Tuesday. Stop by and check out what everyone has been up to.

So here is my entry for challenge #3 Embossing.

I used the Pink by Design Just Beachy stamp set for the main image. I stamped it onto Kraft card stock and then used some white card stock, Copics and some pattern paper and paper pieced it together.

The sentiment is from the Pink By Design Summer Vacation stamp set.

For the embossing part of the card I used my Cuttlebug and the Spellbinders M Bossabilities Sea Beauty, love this double folder.

I added some Blueberry Divine Twine to finish the card.

The inside sentiment  and the shells also comes from the Summer Vacation stamp set.

So get your stamps out and start entering the challenges, remember you have about a 3 hr time limit. I hope everyone has a great time.

Good luck to all and happy crafting.

Camping under the stars

Oh what fun….. at the end of the week my friend’s daughter is going to Girl Guide Camp. I can remember going to girl guide camp as a young girl and having the time of my life.

So to wish her the time of her life with lots of great adventures, making new friends and earning badges I made her this card.

Isn’t it cute? I used Recollections and Bazzill Cardstock for the base and the background I cut from a 12×12. The fire is a sticker embellishment from Michaels.

This is part of the Bo Bunny Camp A Lotpaper and embellishment collection. I matted a cardstock sticker  from the Fireside Fun Sticker Sheet…… I love, love, love this collection. I love the little sign by the tents that says  “Welcome Campers”.

I made a 3″ girl guide from the Paper Doll Dress Up and the Everyday Paper Dolls Cartridges. To make the guide tie I used the smallest maple leaf stamp I had and used Memento Bahama Blue ink.

And if you’re like me …. you can’t draw, so I used Peachy Keen’s PK490 Everyday Character Faces Assortment. I gave her some pink cheeks and used my Sukura White Gelly Roll pen for the eyes.

I used DecoArt Snow Writer to make the marshmallows and then used chalk to make them “roasted”… heeeheee.

I used the Spellbinders Grommet Tags and the Peony Dies, stamped and colored with asstorted Tombows and Copics. The sentiment is Happy Camper from Imaginisce.

I added a couple of buttons… the tree and the blue tent as “grommets”.

Well I sure hope she has the best time at camp and brings home lots of great memories. I know I did.

I will be Linking Up to Sarah Hamer’s Link Up Tuesday... you should head on over and check out what everybody has been up to.

I will also be linking up to the Peachy Keen Stamp Challenge – Peachy Challenge #23 – Anything goes. Stop by and check out all the great entries.

Pink By Design’s Ink it Pink Challenge (PbD03)

Hello all this week’s Ink it Pink Challenge is Red, White and Blue. So for this challenge I made a Red, White and Blue Tent Topper card.

I watched this great tutorial by Mary at Cardz Tv on making a Tent topper card. I loved the idea and the card just came together. She has tons of great tutorials on all kinds of amazing cards.

So here is the card that I am entering into the challenge.

All the cardstock is Recollections, I took White cardstock and stamped Cars by Hero Arts and then embossed in American Crafts Rouge embossing powder.

I then added some Pink By Design Air Mail Divine Twine and a few buttons.

Both the car on the inside and the one on the front is a stamp called Vroom by Imaginisce.
