Let's Ketchup

Well, we are certainly nearing the summer season and this sentiment was the inspiration for this card.   The stamp is from Scrappy Mom's and the paper from DCWV.   The fries that were cut from the Fast Food cartridge at 3".  On the inside, I used both papers and a Fiskar's sentiment.

CHA 2013

Sorry it has been a couple of weeks but, I had surgery about a week ago and I was busy getting prepared and then recovering.   I'm doing well though and glad to be on the mend.   Praying that my whole family stays healthy!!!  :)
On another note, today is the start of summer CHA!  I love CHA release weeks.   LOVE.   I wish I could go.   My sister and I are thinking of going next the next time they are in Chicago.   It would be sooo exciting!!!   Teresa Collins's four new releases are posted on her blog today and I am absolutely in love with the Masquerade Party collection for Halloween.   Go check them out!!

Relish the Day

Could this card be any better?  Perfect for the sentiment.   The Hot dog is cut from Fast Food at 2 1/4", with the layers and some inking.   I mounted it onto paper from My Mind's Eye Dilly Dally set.   I added a little red and white twine from Martha Stewart Crafts and then stamped the Scrappy Mom's sentiment onto the back of a raffle ticket and I attached the tickets with an eyelet.
On the inside, I used a piece of Double Dot paper, a strip of twine and stamped a sentiment from Hero Arts Studio Calico.

Enjoy the Ride

Today's card is for my BFF's hubby's BD.   I cut the Motor Cycle from the Father's Day cartridge at 3 1/4" with the layers.   I added some color for the head light and the tail light and then I added some mirrored paper on the back for the engine and exhaust pipe, so that it would look like chrome.  
The paper is from Teresa Collins World Traveler and some silver that I embossed using the diamond plate folder.   
The street sign is from K&Co., stamped with a Fiskar's sentiment.  As you can see from the sideways picture of the inside, I embossed the sides of the inside with the diamond plate and added a stamp by Studio G.
