Belated Birthday…

16 Aug

Good Morning!

Now that I am on vacation I am finally getting some time in my craft room.  Today is going to be a lovely warm day so I am going to head on over to Leslie’s pool to swim and relax for the day.  I have a few chores and errands to do and then we are off!  

I have a couple pretty little cards to share with you before I head out….

Belated Birthday 1

Belated Birthday 2

I used paper from one of my My Mind’s Eye 6×6 paper pads.  I have loads of these but rarely use them which is a shame.

Well I am off!  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!!


A Special Wish….

5 Aug

Hi Blog Friends!

I thought I would pop in and do a quick post on a card that I made a couple weeks back.  I was playing around with my new Penny Black die I picked up at the Cutting Garden recently….

Special WishThe large butterfly is by Penny Black and the smaller one is a spellbinders set I bought ages ago.  The sentiment is by Penny Black as well.  I wanted to give a big shout out to my friend Carol who bought me this beautiful Mariposa paper stack!  It is so lovely!

Well I am off, got to be up at 5 am for work!

Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by!


Mother’s Day Gift Set…

14 Mar

Good Morning!

It has been ages since I have made a blog post!  I took a little break but I am back crafting up a storm!  I have loads of things to share with you and I will be posting regularly again 🙂

Gift Set 001I put together this pretty little gift set a couple of weeks ago.  I love how feminine it is.

Gift Set 002

The box can hold treats or possibly some jewelery.

Gift Set 003I decorated it with some purchased already made flowers as well as the big white flower that I made using my Cameo.  The butterfly punch is by Martha Stewart and I picked up the Punch Around the Page set as well as this single butterfly from The Cutting Garden.

Gift Set 004I decorated a white gift bag to match the set for the box to go in.  I love hand made gifts, they truly are the best gifts to receive because the recipient knows how much effort you put into gifts like this.

I hope what I have shared with you today inspires you to create something beautiful.

Thanks for stopping by!


Hero Arts – In the Garden…

21 Jan

Good Morning!

No one here in Nova Scotia is thinking about gardening right now.  We are getting ready for another blizzard starting tonight and it is going to be very cold!

I despise winter!

Anyway… I have a pretty card to share with you this morning…..

Hero Arts In the GardenI picked up this sweet stamp at The Cutting Garden’s yard sale and  I am sure I only paid about $2.00 for it!  I am off to work again today and I have a feeling it’s going to be a long one.  I stayed up too late last night tidying my craft room as it looked like a bomb went off in it!  It is all tidy again now and waiting for me to come home from work tonight to begin messing it up again! LOL!

Have a fantastic day and stay warm!


Missing my craft room…

18 Dec

Good Morning!

I have been so busy with getting ready for Christmas that I am really missing spending time in my craft room!  I have a few posts that I have saved up to share with you so you don’t think that I have fell off the face of the earth LOL!  Here is some lovely birthday cards, I have made this design back in October, I think, but I really love the look of these cards and I wanted to make some more for my stash…

BirthdayBirthday 2Kim has brought in some lovely brads that work perfectly for the centers of these flowers that I have cut using my cameo.  I really love the elegant look of this card.

Well I am off to work for my last day at my current job.  I have a feeling it is going to be quite an emotional day, as I truly am going to miss my coworkers but on the other hand, I am excited to start something new.  I love change and seem to like to change jobs every 6 or 7 years.  I am starting Christmas vacation on Friday so I can not wait to be able to have some time to sit and play with some new flower punches I have picked up at The Cutting Garden over the last few weeks.

I hope you all have a great day!


Hello Doily….

29 Nov

Good Morning All!

Happy Friday!  I thought I would take a break from posting Christmas cards and post a pretty card that I made using my Hello Doily Stamp….

Hello Doily 1This is one of my go to cards, I make these in several colors and keep a bunch of them in my stash for birthday cards for my special friends.  I have several card designs that I keep for this purpose.  I made these in purple as well and I also like to make them in blue.

Well I am off to get ready for work!  I hope you all have a great day!


More Pretty Prima Doll Cards…

7 Nov

Good Morning!  I have been in a bit of a funk, not spending any time in my craft room at all.  Tony and I have quit smoking and we are almost 3 weeks smoke free and have been kind of adjusting.  I have been in bed early all week feeling quite tired but I think we are just a bit “off” our usual game LOL!  Oh well…. I am sure we will settle out soon.

I have a couple of cards to share with you this morning….

Prima 1Prima 4These are really fun cards to make and quite easy now that I have my Cameo cutting the dolls out!

I am off to work today so I am off to get ready.  I hope you all have a fantastic day and thanks so much for stopping by!


A special birthday card….

16 Oct

Good Morning!  I wanted to pop on and do a quick post of a birthday card that I made for a girl at work.  She is one of the most thoughtful and kind people I know….

Birthday 001I can’t really decide which color to give her, probably the greenish one but I like them both equally.

I hope you all are having a good week and thanks for stopping by!

Hello Monday!…

7 Oct

Ugh! I have never been a fan of Monday’s but there is no point in complaining! LOL!  I am just going to get on with it and head off to work.  I had a great weekend, we went for a very long drive to the Valley and enjoyed some pretty scenery along the way.  I got a little crafty time in this weekend, not as much as I would have liked but sometimes the Mojo just doesn’t cooperate.  Oh well, Its all good!  I have a few things that I can share with you this week and hopefully it will provide you with some inspiration to get crafty.  I hope this post will bring Ms. Lauren out to play as we often like to taunt each other with this stamp!

Hello Doily 1Hello Doily 2I absolutely love this Hello Doily stamp from Stampin’ Up!  It is truly one of my go to stamps.  I love to add some definition to the stamped image buy running some coordinating distress ink over it to make the darker shading.

Well I am off to hit the shower and start my work week!  I hope you all have a great week and thanks so much for stopping by!
