Good Morning! Happy Friday! I am totally excited that the weekend is almost finally here! It’s a long weekend and I am looking forward to enjoying some relaxation time at home and in my craft room! A couple of weeks ago my friend, Shelly came to stay with me from Cape Breton and we had a fun crafty weekend. I got a chance to play with her stamps which was really fun!
This stamp is by Stampin’ Up and Shelly brought so many with her I had a hard time deciding which ones to use! Again with my obsession with blue… Sorry, hopefully I will get off this fixation soon lol!
Okay… now I am off to get ready for work! I hope you all have a fantastic day and thanks so much for stopping by!
Good Morning! I have another quick card to share with you before I head off to get ready for work. This time I am using the Hero Arts Sizzix Stamp & Die-cut set I picked up a while back from The Cutting Garden…
I like the bold colors on this card. Cutting the panel in three equal pieces gives the card extra interest. I am also pleased that this card is low profile and mail friendly. I have a very busy week ahead of me, starting Wednesday at noon I am in all day meetings that will take me into quite late in the evenings so I am not sure if I will be posting every morning but I will try Today the temperature is supposed to be lovely and warm, yesterday the sun was glorious and it is making me look forward to doing some work in my garden. This year I plan to plant Sunflowers and I am really hoping that I will be successful with them. I planted them the first year we owned our house and they were spectacular!
Okay, so I am off to start my day! Thanks so much for stopping by!!
Good Morning and Happy Friday! I can’t even tell you how happy I am it’s finally Friday! I have a very relaxing weekend planned, lots of crafty time and some of my regular chores around the house and a few walks for the dogs. That’s It! I am planning on doing a small re-org of my craft room tonight… I am hoping it’s small LOL! I don’t want to tear my room apart because I want it to be in some sort of working order so I can play this weekend.
I have a card to share with you this morning that I made a while back….
The background frame die is by Cheery Lynn and it is called France Lattice Small Frame. It is the perfect size for a regular A2 card and it cuts beautifully in my Bigshot. I paired it with the JustRite Kindness stamp set and used white and black heat embossing. This is a very simple card but it looks very elegant.
This is just a short post and I need to get my act in gear and get ready to start my day.
I hope you all have a lovely day and thanks so much for stopping by!
Good Morning! I hope everyone had a nice weekend. I spent the weekend home with my family relaxing and playing around in my craft room. I have been getting a little tired of doing regular cards lately so I thought I would change things up and have a go at some fancy folds…
I love this dress form stamp by My Minds Eye…. I use it often. I am also enjoying making my own flowers lately… It is really helping me with using up my scrap pieces of paper. Well I don’t have a lot to say but I do have a ton of projects to get pictures taken of so that I can share them with you throughout the week.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
Good Afternoon Blog Friends and Happy Thanksgiving!!
I had such high hopes for this weekend, I really wanted to get some crafty time in since I will be having a four day weekend but my mojo just wasn’t cooperating with me at all! Until last night that is! I have a very fun and VERY late evening Skyping with my lovely friend Lauren… OMG! Until 2 am! LOL! Anyway, thank goodness for her, she found my mojo for me!!! I don’t think there is a technique out there that she doesn’t know! WoW! You can find Lauren’s blog HERE, she has loads of wonderful tutorials and projects to share so pay her a little visit, you will be glad you did!! Anyway, while chatting with her I was able to create like crazy! Here’s one of the projects I made….
A long while back I bought a fantastic stamp set from The Cutting Garden called Pink Paislee called Spring Jubilee. This is such a pretty set of stamps and it was perfect for me to make something with a bit of a vintage feel to it.
I want to throw out a big Thank You! to my friend Lynn who sent me the beautiful ivory lace that I used on the inside tag. Lynn sent me several types of lace and some beautiful lace flowers that you will be seeing on a upcoming post. Her flowers were prefect for a project I was working on this morning. Thanks again Lynn!!!! Here’s a look at the inside tag…
The sentiment I used for the inside is by Hampton Art.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by.
Good Morning! I have a quick little post this morning while I am on skype chat having coffee with my Aussie friend Lauren I made this little card up to send to a friend this week for a little pick me up.
