August Birthdays Continue

Our friends bought a RV camper this past May and they are having a great time with it. They have taken their grandsons to North Conway camping at National Park camping grounds. I made this card for Dennis' birthday on August 14th using punch art and making an easel card. It is amazing what you can make with punches! Happy Birthday Dennis
Staying with the easel theme, this card is for my brother in law, Tom. His favorite activity is golfing but I have made him a couple of golfing cards so I thought this year to go with a traditional card--Birthday Cake!!! Happy Birthday Tom!
My sister, Andrea's birthday is tomorrow so I made her a double Z-fold card and used Grace's Garden stamp and die set from SU. I thought of this when I was at her house this summer and I saw that she and her husband put up an arbor. Love this stamp set! Happy Birthday Andrea! Lastly, I just wanted to show some photos of our craft fair that we had in Kennebunk, Maine last weekend. It was so hot and humid that there wasn't a great turn out but we did okay for the number of people that did come. Kuddo's to everyone that made it! Kennebunk is a beautiful place!

Summer Birthdays

These pinwheel tower cards are very impressive, in that, they stand so nice for display and fold easily for mailing. There is lots of room for decorating. I made this one for a good friend whose birthday was at the end of July and was able to decorate it a lot so I just handed it to her. I have seen a lot of them on Pinterest and they are all so pretty. The DP that I used is from Stampin up with dies for a lot of different companies. Below are more pictures of the card from different angles.
Folded flat for mailing.
Our neighbor, Julia, had her 8th birthday this week. She is a fan of mermaids and unicorns. Made this shaker card for her. This stamp/die set is from Stampin up. Happy Birthday Julia!

Medicare Birthday

I thought my brother would get a kick out of this card! He turned 65 yesterday so I made him a "Happy Medicare Birthday" card! It is an accordion/trifold style card. Check out a few more pictures of this card below.
My sisters and I have been busy getting ready for our craft fair in Kennebunk on the 14th of August. Here are a few more projects that I have completed. It was fun decorating the lighthouses. The smaller lighthouse was a lot different before I put it on a candlestick and painted it. Here is a picture of it before...
