I’d like to take a moment to welcome the talented Andrea Murdock to our YNS stamping family for the month of August!!! So glad to have you with us Andi!!!
Check out this super adorable Cupcake Cutie Fhiona card Andi created along with a bit of info in her own words…
Hi, my name is Andrea but I also go by Andi. I have been married to my best friend for 16 years and we have 2 daughters. Our house is always filled with laughter as we all like to think we are comedians and try to out do each other at making our family laugh! I have been papercrafting for about 10 years now and my addiction hasn’t slowed down a bit! I am not sure what I do more though- buy supplies or actually create- it may be tied! I am even getting better at using my pretty paper and ribbons and not just hoarding it lolz! My favourite medium to work with are copic markers and I love to find new ways to use stamps to show their versatility. My daughters like to craft with me and I have even learned how to share my copic markers without having my eye twitch hee hee! I fell in love with YNS images as they were so fun not only for me to play with but my daughters went nuts over them! They have such a fun whimsical look to them that they are a great addition to my crafting collection. I am so excited to be part of YNS’s August team!

____ Since our challenge this week over at the YNS challenge blog is to make an easel card I thought I would have some fun and create a shaped easel card! Thanks for this fun challenge Cabio! I keep seeing these shaped easel cards all over blog land and I’ve always wanted to make one so I finally went for it! LOL

We’re celebrating my father’s birthday this weekend and he loves fishing and relaxing on his boat so I thought this was the perfect stamp for his card! I’ve used Ethan out on the pond and just couldn’t resist pairing it up with this adorable 3 Bugs in a Rug DP.
I thought this was the perfect time to share with you a few cute pictures of Brandon. He got to go fishing with Grandpa for the first time this past week and he had so much fun playing with all the rubber worms in his pail plus ‘bumpa’ (this what Brandon calls him) let him drive the boat! LOL
Plus to celebrate Dad’s birthday I’ve got a sale going on over at the YNS store…

—- It’s time for YNS Challenge #21! Our hostess this week is the very talented Cabio and she has challenged us to make Easel Cards! I really enjoyed this challenge because it forced me to make something different rather than a traditional shaped card which I seem to lean towards most of the time.

Today I’d like to share these adorable cards made by some really special blogger friends of mine!
The first card is by Christine over at Dol Creations. She’s used the adorable Dale Design Stamp Make a Wish and you can check out her blog post HERE. I just love how she coloured this image and all the added sparkle is the perfect touch!
This next card is by Lori Craig over at Make a Difference. She has used the super cute Bubbly Fun Fhiona and you can check her post out HERE. I just love her stitching and all the shine she added to the tub!

___ Happy Friday!
I just couldn’t resist sharing this super fun and creative smores bag created by Kerry Urbatch which just happens to be the featured project right now on PCP! Kerry used the adorable Fhiona’s Tent stamp and created a yummy smores bag…how creative! I think this is a must have for all campers venturing out to the wild! I know I would be quite happy sitting by the camp fire munching away on some of these sweet treats!

I’m really loving the colours in this new Bo Bunny Sun Kissed line and with this heat chilling by the water with a glass of Crystal Light (or whatever you fancy) is definitely on my mind. I had a little crafting time yesterday and decided to make this simple summer fun card…
I used the fancy drink from the Dale Design Cheers set and decided to color it in using some reinkers and my water pen and then finished it off which a little sparkle smooch and clear glaze for the glass – FUN! The sentiment I used is from the Fhiona and Fhinn Hiking stamp set and I now have amazing white gel pens in stock which I used for the highlights on the glass.

— Happy Wednesday!
It’s time for YNS Challenge #20 – YIPPEE!!! Angela is our wonderful hostess and she has challenged us to use FLOWERS on our cards and creations. I love flowers and there are so many different flower stamps, embellishments and papers to choose from so I’m sure you’ll have as much fun playing along as I did!
I decided to use the Flower Garden stamp for my card. I used the solid half of this stamp set and I really had fun messing around with the different inks to get the multi colored look. Of course, I had to add a little sparkle and bling just for fun!
Be sure to check out the awesome paper and embellishment sale I’ve got going on at the YNS store.
Hop on over the the YNS challenge blog to check out all the challenge details on how to win some YNS bucks and also to see all the other fabulous cards created by the YNS starlets!
