A Birthday Bonanza Blog Candy!

Happy Thursday Friends! Decided to take the day off yesterday just hangin' around with the kids and bein' lazy, hee hee! I realized that there is only 5 more weeks left of summer vacation for them so I've gotta plan some day trips. We're gonna head down to Alexandria this weekend and do the "National Treasure Movie" tour of Mt. Vernon (George Washington's plantation home)--we have annual passes there & we just love it. If you're ever in the area it's a must see for sure--and plan to spend a whole day there! The kids are headed off to my mom's next week for 4 days too--my dad will take Riley fishing & sailing I'm sure, lol! So hubby & I will actually have a few days to ourselves, yippee!! Not sure what we're doing but at least a few dinners out by ourselves for sure!


BLOG CANDY!!
I'm giving away the cute Whiff of Joy Stamp below "Bruno Bear w/ Present" and a $20 Gift Certificate to All That Scraps to celebrate my last week as a Guest Designer for them!!

To enter just leave a comment on this post ONLY answering the following question "What is your dream vacation destination & why?" by Sunday, August 2nd at midnite EST!! Winner will be announced Monday morning!! (one comment per person please)
***************************************************

So today I've got a couple of birthday cards to share with you featuring the new Whiff of Joy "Party Animal" stamps! I love these lil' animals--so many perfect occasions to use them for, any celebration really. This card uses cutie "Bruno Bear w/ Present" --except I'm invisioning him as a "she" today for my card, hee hee. (These stamps are also available for pre-order at 7 Kids College Fund right HERE if you want to order them locally here in the states!)

I followed this week's SCS sketch #239 and fun dp from DCWV's "Pocket Full of Posies"--love the bright colors for a celebration card. The flowers are all Primas w/ Doodlebug glittered brad centers and the sentiment is from PTI's "Mega Mixed Messages" ( a MUST have set IMO)!! I added some diamond stickles to the present and on top of the sentiment for lots of shimmer.

Second card uses "Lou Celebrating Monkey" and I paired him up with some fun dp from Memory Box "Rhubarb Tart"--I liked the fun colors together & kinda jungly looking dp. I created jungle leaves with green Prima flowers that I cut--the green flowers work perfectly for doing this (another fun tip from me, hee hee)!! Just a few stickles on the present & the leaves--the sentiment is from Hero Arts "Thoughtful Messages" (I've had this set forever & use it ALOT)! So there ya have it--2 fun birthday cards to add to the stash (actually they're both for sale on my Etsy site, hee hee)!

Don't forget that Whiff of Joy is having pre-orders for their Fall Stamp Kit featuring 10 Elisabeth Bell images for $36 until August 7th right HERE! It's a fabulous deal!!

I'll see ya back here tomorrow!

hugz,

Suzanne

  3. Beautiful cards and sadyou are finishing as guest designer, i have just been guest designer for WOJ for 5 weeks and this was my last week to. I would love to go to the Bahamas and feel the soft golden sands and fresh warm blue waters between my toes and relax and then enjoy barbecues on the beach in the evenings.

  8. My ultimate dream vacation is Hawaii! I have always wanted to go since I was a kid! Luckily, I married a great guy and that is his ultimate dream vaca too! I've never been there and that would be a great delayed honeymoon for me & hubby! We plan to go there in 2011!

  9. Seems to be everyone's dream but definitely Hawaii! We actually have family there with a house on Maui and have been invited to come. It's just a matter of having the time and saving some money. Suzanne, i just love your work. Everything you make is so beautiful. Thank you for the opportunity to win.

  10. My dream vacation is the US. And best part of it is, I am going next year. We're gonna do a cross country starting in LA and then we have 5 weeks ahead of us.
    Other then that any vacation with my family is a dream vacation.

  11. My dream vacation is to follow the Lewis and Clark trail from Missouri to Oregon with my husband and kids. I have been fascinated with the Lewis and Clark expedition for years, read many books and watched many movies. It would be incredible to see those historic sites in person!! Thanks for the opportunity. :o)

  12. Both of these are so cute Suzanne. What fun images.

    My dream vacation would be one with just my hubby spending a lot of time on a beach. It can't be too hot, though. I'd like to just relax, relax, and relax some more. The place would have to have good food as well, as I love to eat.

  13. Great cards Suzanne! Thanks for the chance to win this great blog candy!! Right now, my dream vacation is to visit Ireland. Why? I don't really know. I've just had an innate interest it going there. Hope to make it some day!! :)

My dream vacation would be to come to your copic class. Since I'm afraid to fly,I read your tutorials and try my best.You're such an inspiration. I'm a home body,6 kids keeps me busy.LOL

  17. Hmmm... my dream vacation I think would be to go with my husband to a small beautfiul cottage on a beach somewhere by a lighthouse. No children, no phones, no computer. Just a good book, my Bible, my cross stitch, some stamping supplies - eating out every night with no dietary restrictions - walking on the beach in the moonlight...

    Why? I would love to just get away and enjoy God's creation, without demands on my time and my thought. It would be fun to relax, to be with my husband.... Ahhh, it's restful just to think about it!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Beautiful creations as usual! Love that little bear. My dream vacation would be to see the fjords of Norway and stay in a little village for a month or so. I've always loved seeing pictures and somehow feel a personal connection pulling me there. Of cours I would also love to hit a stamp shop or two while I'm there.

    I teach in Alexandria and love visiting Mt. Vernon too. It's awesome to see it passing by on the river. Have fun!

  19. Suzanne, beautiful work as always!! Love that bright and happy bear, sooo cute! and the monkey, love what you did with the "leaves"!! Clever!!

    My dream vacation depends on if it's just me or not. My (personal) dream/perfect vacation is the sun, beach, (and also pool), and a huge stack of books and movies. No cooking, no cleaning, nobody needs anything, LOL just get lost in my own little world, sun and swim. aaah!! DH can't handle "doing nothing" - not even for a day. So he can't come, LOL.

    If it's not just me, then I would love for DH and I to go back to Italy. We went on our honeymoon and it was amazing! I'd spend at least 2 weeks, with less time in Rome and more in the countryside and would also go to the coast.

    ReplyDelete
  20. absolutely love your creations. i visit almost daily.

    my dream vacation, a beach with shade and sand. love the warm weather, sand, water but not the sun. All the crafting supplies, I could dream of. Some one to cook exotic meals while I play and a pool boy for eye candy to prep my cocktails.

  21. My dream vacation.....a cruise to somewhere nice and tropical drinking strawberry dacquiris in the sun and getting a nice tan. I guess if my hubby is nice he could go with since we never had a honeymoon.

    Don't remind me about summer ending. I have to send my son off to college at the beginning of September and I am not ready to let him go just yet.

    I would also love to win your prize though.

    thanks much

  23. Your cards are so stunning! Love all of the inspiration! For my dream vacation, I'm a bit conflicted - I'd love to visit Scotland and Ireland to trace some of my family roots and I love castles! But, on the other hand, I'd like to visit Russia and the Ukraine as that's where my husband's family is from (and more recently than mine).

    ReplyDelete
  24. My dream destination is Hawaii. I'm not sure what the lure is other then the beaches, but I have always wanted to go there. Perhaps to take an airplane tour of all of the islands. Another destination would be Australia!! Thank you Susan for all of the great information and inspiration you provide every day on your blog!!

  37. Oh, how stinkin cute they are! Good for you for taking yesterday off. We all need to do that every now and then. I love that little monkey and the jungle berry is perfect! Thanks for the tip! And that she bear is adorable! Just so innocent looking there. My dream vacation is being in a really nice hotel right on the beach! Nothing more relaxing to me than to be out cooling down in those waves and catching that sun and then at night being able to have the window open and hearing that lull of the ocean coming on on the beach. Oh, that's my piece of heaven! Thanks for the opportunity to win! You rock, my dear friend!

    Big hugs to you,

  45. Last summer i went to Ibiza, we were in a hotel with full breakfast, and dinner, beautiful pool, steps away from a white sand tourquoise water beach... We took a katameran trip off to a deserted island, the water was shallow and warm, the fish were swimming around, it was great snorkeling, and the riding around on the rigging of the katameran was so warm yet so cool with the ocean spray spraying up from underneath. It was sooooo gorgeous!!!!! I would love to go back there!!

  46. Love your cards ! The Whiff of Joy images are too cute !

    I am not sure what my dream vacation would be but I think it would be hoping in the motorhome and heading from one coast to the other of Canada and through the U.S. Now if I could avoid all the large cities along the way , I think I would be very happy

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love your WoJ cards! They are too cute!
    I would love to go some warm tropical place right now. Normally in Colorado we have about 360 sunny days a year; this summer we've had about 10 sunny days! So much for my tan! Ha! Thanks for the chance! I really enjoy your blog and everything you do with WoJ and CC Designs :o)

  48. Mostly I prefer to stay home but I can think of a few places that I would like to visit. My dd would love to see her birthplace so I could go to Ft. Sill, OK but that would be more for her. I would love to see Boston again if my other dd would get a job there and live. I would enjoy going to Paris again without a baby on my back and spend much more time there.

  49. My ideal vacation (or holiday as we say over here) would be to a small house in a village in south-western France

    Good food, good wine, good weather, great light and about the only place in the world I can relax!

    Love the blog btw

  61. This is so cute!

    As for best vacation and why, we went to Los Angeles, Ca a few years back and had the best time. We got up and did what we wanted on a daily basis. Only had 1 day pre-planned! We had so much fun with this that this past year we went to San Diego, CA and did just the same thing, deciding either the night before or the morning!

    Loads of fun!

    Thanks for an oppertunity to win such a fun stamp set!

  63. My dream vacation....drive the motor home across Canada, over to the Maritimes, down the US coast through Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, across to South Dakota, Idaho, Nevada (gotta see the grand canyon) up the Oregon coast and back into Canada.

    I love you blog and all the ideas you come up with. I have spent the past couple of days viewing all your Copic videos. I just got all 148 of my "have-to-have" colors and I can't wait to get started.

  64. Totally cut cards! Love the images and the color combos are wonderful! Mu dream vacation would be to New Zealand. Ever since I saw The Lord of the Rings I fell in love with the scenery and would actually love to see it in person. Have a wonderful time with your kids on your day trips. My baby goes back to college shortly. They grow up so fast!

  65. Beautiful cards!!! Cute, cute stamps.

    My favorite vacation would be to travel to Lyon, France and visit my mothers birthplace and home - she became a naturalized citizen on my first birthday and never returned to her homeland. She has sinced passed and my sister and I would love to vacation there and find out more about our heritage.
    Someday....

    Thanks for giving me the opportunity to share my dreams. Your are such a talented and generous lady.

    Oh, by the way - I'm a teacher in Indiana and we start back August 12th - sigh!!! I'll be thinking of you enjoying those extra weeks w/your children (can ya tell I'm envious???). Of course, if we didn't start until after Labor Day, then we'd be in school until the middle of June - 180 student days one way or the other.

    Thanks again for this wonderful opportunity!

    My dream vacation is to the Bahamas. My husband and I went there on our honeymoon just over 4 years ago and I fell in love with the ocean! The whole atmosphere there was awesome. I was sick when we were there before, so I didn't get to enjoy it as much as we would have liked, so I can't wait to go again for our 5th wedding anniversary! :)

  69. These cards are so cute! My dream vacation would be to go back to Kona, Hawaii and do more fishing and spend some time with my hubby! We have been there twice before and both times, I caught Wahoo. I would love to go back and catch some Mahi-Mahi or a giant yellow fin tuna. The weather is so beautiful there and the scenery is magical. The plants are very similar to what we have in FL, but the ocean just has it's own mystique! The water is such a different color there. Besides, where else can you kayak with a giant sea turtle swimming up to your boat?
    Congrats on your ATS GDT spot - you are a fabulous designer and very deserving of the spot! :)

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  72. My dream vacation would be to Australia (especially if they figure out how to teleport) as the thought of that long plan ride is one of the drawbacks. But Australia is just a place that I would love to see and everyone I have ever met from there is so nice, I think it would be a fun and beautiful place, exotic critters, great coral reef....

  76. My dream vacation? At this stage it would just be to go on vacation - we havan't been anywhere in about 7 years. Work, children, all sorts of other things seem to take preference!
    If I could go anywhere it would have to be Lapland, I have always wanted to go there to meet Santa face to face. Actually it is because I think it must be a magical place, with such beauty and it will not be overrun by tourists

    ReplyDelete
  77. Love the card and all the creations you have designed for WOJ. The store is a fantastic place to shop and the service is spectacular.

    My dream vacation would be to travel through Wisconsin, Connecticut, and the north eastern states in the fall. Ideal transportation would be a motor home bus where we never had to unpack and could just enjoy the time together. Of course, we'd have to take our little Sparkey (minature schnauzer) or the trip wouldn't be complete.

    I love that little Bruno and he would be such a nice addition to my WOJ stamps.

    Thanks for the inspiration you share with all of us.

  78. What a adorable Stamp.
    For my Dream Vacation I would LOVE to go on a Disney Cruise with Hubby and Kids.. I love Disney and I know my Kids would have such a wonderful Time. I think smelling fresh Sea Air is such a amazing expirience and it would be a Vacation of a Lifetime for me and most likely for them as well.
    Thank you for the Chance to win this cute Stamp.

  79. You do amazing work!!! I love your videos. They were so helpful.

    My dream vacation at this point in my life would be to a cabin in the mountains with lots of water (either rivers or lakes) and lots of trees. I want to be in solitude but I also want someone there to do all the cooking. I want to do lots and lots of relaxing and probably crocheting and reading.

    Thanks for the awesome blog and all the great tips!!

    I love your blog and tutorials and always look farward to the new things you do.

  87. what fun! My dream vacation destination would be southern california but only as a dream vacation if my hubby (who doesnt fly) came with me. It's where we met and lived together for some time before moving east to have our family. I would really like to go there again with him. :)

  91. My dream vacation would be to New Zealand to view the stunning scenery and visit friends. I have fear of travelling so I doubt this dream will come true but as the saying goes "never say never".

  93. First Suzanne I still stand in awe of your work. I am learning so much from looking at it and also at your videos.

    My dream vacation like a lot of people would be to go to Hawaii in 2015.

    Why??? First is is a place that I have always wanted to go, but the best reason is that me and my sweet hubby would be celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary and how cool would that be!!! We are discussing the possibilities. We would fly to Hawaii (of course) but then we would "cruise" all the islands. That would be very romantic and believe it or not even after 44 years years married this past June we are still VERY much in love and know that we would have a wonderful time on our 50th!!!! Hugs, Pat J

  94. Thank you so much for sharing your creativity - it ispires me to be creative!

    My dream vacation would be to go to Great Britain. My husband and I have British/Welsh ancestors and it would be so amazing to be able to go to Wales and imagine my great-grandfather working in the coal mines there. Or to be in the Picadilly Circus Tube Station and imagine my mother-in-law sitting throught the night during an air raid. There are so many fascinating things to see and do there. Judy W.

  96. Your cards are so pretty! I love how they inspire me to try to make "prettier" cards. :)

    My dream vacation... Hands down. Hawaii. DH and I used to go every year... until we started having kids 2 years ago. Hopefully we'll make a trip next year!

  99. I love your cards and must try the one with the Lockhart "Cottage Flowers" stamp. So, so cute.
    Dream vacation...My husband and I would love to tour this beautiful USA by Amtrak. Relax, see so much scenery as we pass by oh so many wonderful towns and of course in my free time, I could still get in a little stamping/copic coloring. Maybe one of these days our dream will come true. Thanks for asking!

  101. My dream vacation destination would be Alaska - I really want to learn to fly fish and the scenery and wildlife would be, as my 5 yo DGS would say, AWESOME!!!

  104. love the cards. and your box on split coast stampers.

  105. Suzanne, I always love your cards and these are no exception. Going to CASE the first one with the Whiff of Joy stamp for sure. Great tip on using the green primas for leaves. When I saw the button and primas my first thought was it looked like a cherry! Love both cards!

    My dream vacation? That's a tough choice because I have lots of dream vacations Australia, Italy, England to visit my niece, Norway to visit my grandmothers family but most recently my dream is to spend an extended weekend with some dear stamping/card swapping friends I made on SCS. Good news is we are planning a Sisterpalooza get together at a lodge in Wisconsin next July and plan on doing lots of crafty things together! I am so excited!!! Want to join us???

  106. My dream vacation spot would be a return to the Caribbean, especially Turks and Caicos. What fabulous clear blue, warm water! The sand on the beaches was like flour, and I couldn't believe how beautiful it was.

  107. My son is a 2nd year resident ER doctor at a New York hospital & I would love to see him "in action". That would be awesome! We are planning a trip in Sept to attend a wedding in PA but it will be very rushed so I'm hoping for a "dream vacation" in the near future to spend more time exploring New York with them.
    Thanks so much for the offer of some yummy candy!
    btw.....your cards are darling!

  108. Well, let me think. I guess my dream vacation would be to Maine and Nova Scotia and along that coast. I have never been to that part of the country. We were lucky enough to see Alaska and that was a dream come true! Hawaii is on my list as well. Someday...
    What great blog candy you are offering and the Lockhart stamp today is beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  109. These are both such wonderful cards! I always love your cards :-)

    My "dream" vacation would actually be a FULL week at Walt Disney World!! I live in Florida, so I have only ever gone to Disney for a few days at a time. But we go often. However, since we are usually only there for a few days, we spend that time at the parks. I would love to just take in the experiences at the awesome themed hotels and pools!! Silly I guess!

  110. Love your cards!!

    My dream vacation - a card making/scrapbook cruise where my husband could come and play lots of poker. When we stop at the ports, we could join up and go sight seeing together, then once back on, we could go off to do our own thing and everyone would be happy!! LOL! Somewhere hot I think - a Mediterranean cruise. Yup!

    Thanks for the offer!!

  111. I would love to drive down the eastcoast and see the land where our fathers fought for freedom of the slaves. My family's homestead is still in Virginia and would love to stay at the bed and breakfast that it now is. I would also like to go to the Nascar races while I am doing all that.

  112. I would love to go to the east side of Canada. I have visited all of the states and Mexico but have only been in Canada once and that was on the West Coast.

  114. My dream vacation would be to go to Hawaii! My sister and her family went there and they want to go back. I sure wish I could have sneaked into her suitcase but she lives too far away for that. LOL

    Thanks for the chance to win the blog candy!

  115. I would LOVE to go to GREECE. The archaeological treasures in that land are spectacular - the food is wonderful - and there is NOTHING as beautifully blue as the Mediterranean Sea and Sky.

  116. OOoooh, my dream vacation is a little spot just south of St. Augustine, not far from where I used to live called Matanza's Inlet. David and I go there right off the old A1A and we have the whole beach to ourselves! There is never anyone around and it's so beautiful!

  117. My dream destination would be anywhere in Europe. There are so many places to visit and so many things to see. But if I have to take only one destination it would be France for all the history,it`s culture, food, wine and the beautiful castles to visit.

    ReplyDelete
  118. My dream vacation would be somewhere warm and sunny with my son maybe back to California where we could go and enjoy the adult side as last time he was 14 so couldnt experience the night life now at 26 would be wonderful. This would be amazing end to a dreadful year as last september he broke his neck but is ok now happy ending.

  119. Hi, Love your blog and your work, visit you every day. My dream vacation would be 2 weeks in Italy, touring the wine vineyards and taking some Italian cooking courses with my husband. We were in Venice a couple years ago, and I just fell in love the the country and way of life.
    That would be my dream
    Thanks

  121. My dream holiday would be to Queensland in Australia to visit my very best friend in the world. And because it is a dream holiday I will be travelling on my own- no gorgeous family to stop me going in to the wonderful exciting paper/stamp shops. [sigh]

  122. I absolutely love all the new WoJ stamps. Very cute! My dream vacation would be to earn the Stampin' Up! incentive trip and go to Hawaii or wherever they may be going at the time. I can't imagine anything more fun than being able to vacation and stamp with such great ladies!

    ReplyDelete
  123. Wow.. thought I would never find where to leave a comment.

    My dream vacation would probably be a scrapbooking cruise. A whole week of being away from it all ad scrapbooking/making cards with a whole bunch of others that enjoy doing the same thing. And think of the creativity that would be flowing.

  124. My dream vacation has always been to visit Greece. I am fascinated by the historic sights like the Parthenon. Swimming in thye blue green sea would be my idea of heaven

  128. Thank you for a chance at this great candy. I just love all your copic videos, I watch them with my crafter-in-training! My dream vacation would be to go to Africa. It sounds bad, but I want to see the slave prisons that my family was held in before they came to America, it would be so healing. The whole continent has such a rich and beautiful history and I want to show that to my daughter. So, one of these days...

  129. My dream vacation destination would be the central Oregon Coast. I love the cool temps, the greens, clouds, and blue ocean. Living in the desert, an Oregon Coast summer just cannot be beat.

    Thank you, Suzanne, for all the lessons and inspiration! You're a sweetie to offer the blog candy, too!

  130. My dream vacation would have to be to go to egypt.... I would love to be able to see all those pyramids in person.... though, Hawaii would be alright with me too!!!

  131. I love to travel and I love going to places I have never been. but for me, my perfect vacation is up in the mountains, on a porch, listening the the wind in the trees, watching the hummers, the squirrels, the birds. it is so restful to feel the cool breeze gently going over me. that's where I spent the last week! on my parents porch!!!

    thanks for putting my name in the hat!

  132. What a lovely card! My dream vacation is to go to Ireland. I'm of Irish heratige, and have always wanted to visit the town where my great grandparents grew up.

  133. I love your cards! So bright and cheerful :) I'm a longtime scrapper and just starting to get interested in stamping thanks to some of the talented bloggers I've "met". Thanks for the chance at Bruno; he's a cutie!

    My dream vacation is to Mackinac Island, MI both for the natural beauty and Victorian charm. If you're interested see my recent blog post HERE where I'll tell you more about the island and give you a link to some bee-you-tee-ful photos!

  135. Hello Suzanne!

    My dream destination would be Kaui. It's laid back, lush, tropical, romantic, and sooooo pretty! And I love pineapple, macadamias, and the island lifestyle! :)

  136. I'm not a lazy-in-the-sun type (ivory white skin, I burn rather than tan...), so my favorite vacation destination would be some scrapbooking / stamping mekka, like getting into a Tim Holz course!

  137. absolutely stunning cards Suzanne, as always
    What is your dream vacation destination & why?
    well, I live in the North East of Scotland and although its nicer weather than its stereotype I would love to go somewhere a bit warmer. I have a 5 year plan to get myself my degree and move to Australia, so that would be my dream holiday destination - to go visit one of my oldest friends in Canberra and make some enquiries about emigrating. I think it would be a great way of life for my 3 children.

  138. It's been so long since I've been able to afford a nice vacation that I don't even dream about them anymore. But if a miracle happened and I could go anywhere I think I would like to take a cruise with an outside window cabin all along the west coast of North America - spending a lot of time along Canada and esp. Alaska. I really want to see the Northern Lights. I don't think there could be anything more beautiful.

  139. My dream destination would be to Hawaii. My son just got home from doing 2 tours in Iraq and I havent seen him in 1 1/2 yrs so it would be nice to see him again, plus its so beautiful there.

    ReplyDelete
  140. My dream destination would be a cruise ship for a nice long Alaskan cruise! I've always wanted to do that, and travel. Not bad wishes for someone who only spends vacation with family for all these years! But they live far away,and it's important to stay in touch!

  146. Hi!

    Thank you for all you do!

    My dream vacation would be to have all my friends to my house for a week to craft.

    Why? Because I love to craft and love to share what I create with the people care about, and I love to be with them.

    ReplyDelete
  147. My dream vacation would be on a tropical island with my family and no phone, email, tv etc. Just time for us to talk and do things together without interruption.

    Why - because as the kids get older it is getting harder and harder to find time for us all to connect - there is always something going on. Also I love the tropics so what a better place to connect? Sand, sun and ocean a perfect place to relax and explore.

  148. My dream vacation is going to florida by myself. I was able to do that this past spring and visit my mom for a whole week. It was very peaceful and relaxing to just spend time with her.
