Simple & Elegant….

10 Aug

I have another simple but elegant card to share with you….

SorryI made the flower with my Silhouette, it is such a beautiful flower but you have to be very careful when removing it from the mat at it is really fragile!  The embossing folder is from Stampin’ Up! called elegant lines.

I am back to work tomorrow so this evening I am doing all the chores I have procrastinated over all weekend.  Nothing new here! LOL!

Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by!



Thinking of you….

Thinking of you 001Good Morning!  I have another quick little post for you this morning.  I don’t have as much time as I used to in the mornings because I leave for work earlier now.  Last night I had a nice relaxing evening in my craft room and I managed to make a cute little set of Thinking of you cards using my On The Grow stamp set and my water color paints.  These little cards measure 3 1/4 x 6″.  They are very clean and simple cards and are really quick to make.

I’m off to hit the shower!  Have a great day!

Good Afternoon!  I hope you are all enjoying your weekend 🙂  I have been having fun with my new Penny Black Poppy Poem stamp….

Poppy Poem 1Poppy Poem 2Poppy Poem 3It is such a pretty stamp and very easy to color using my water color pencils.  I am off to run some errands and do some housework and possibly stop in for a visit at The Cutting Garden.

Have a great day!

Good Morning!  Last night was a late night for me.. I stayed up chatting with Lauren on skype while Tony watched the Hockey game.  He has been following our local hockey team – The Mooseheads closely this year and they have a good chance at finishing at the top of their league.  I don’t know much about what all that means, just that they are winning pretty much all of their games.  Anyway I have a card to share with you today, a simple sympathy card for my stash…

Post12I made this using the Just Believe stamp set I borrowed from Kim called Just Believe.  It makes beautiful sympathy cards.  I just stamped it in black and added some matching design paper.  I am off to work again today, Friday is my regular day off so it is a short week for me.

I hope you all have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!

Well it’s finally Friday!  I am pretty much out of projects to share with you as well!  I really need to find some time to get in my craft room to play and I am hoping to do that this weekend.  I am not crazy about this card but I will share it with you anyway….

Post1Post2I just have nothing to say about this one LOL!  Well, except for back to the drawing board 😉  I am off to get ready for work, hoping that this day goes by quickly!  I am looking forward to some down time this weekend 🙂

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!


Hey there…. it’s just me….

Good Morning!  I am off work today as Tony has some medical appointments that I want to attend with him and I thought I would drag my butt into my craft room and do a blog post.  It has been mentioned to me that people are wondering what is up with me as I haven’t been posting and crafting much lately.  To be honest, I haven’t been doing much of anything creative lately!  I need to drag myself out of this funk that I am in! LOL!!

I wondered this past weekend if I am just simply growing bored or tired of this hobby but I don’t think that is it at all.  I think I am just not great at multi tasking. My mind is preoccupied with my personal life, and I am a terrible worrier, so that has been completely taken over my creativity.  Also when I have a lot on my mind I tend to be a bit of a recluse, I prefer to just be on my own and digest (so to speak) what is going on with me, so my friends and family tend to get VERY frustrated with me.  Most of my friends are, to say the least, a bit ticked off at me so I am going to have to buck up and get myself back on track!  It’s time to push all that aside and get back to having some fun 🙂

Okay, enough of my rambling… you are not here to read about this drivel, you are here to see what craftiness I have been up to.  I have a whole box of projects and cards to share with you and I am determined to get posting regularly again!

This blog post has a serious tone to it, so right now I am regretting picking a Sympathy card to show you but oh well, the picture has been taken and I am going to post it anyway.  My next card, AND blog post will be much more up beat!  I promise!!! ;D


This stamp set is by Flourishes – Calla Lilies, it’s beyond beautiful!  I thought I would cut up the image to give it a bit of interest.  I added a tiny bit of color to the flowers and dry embossed the background.  These cards were very easy to put together and the low profile enables you to just pop them into an envelope with regular postage.

I hope you all have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!

Hi Again Blog Friends…  I have another set of cards to share with you today….

This is one of my favorite Memory Box dies called Wild Blooms, there is just something very elegant about a white on white card. I picked this die at The Cutting Garden, Kim has a fantastic selection in stock of these beautiful dies.

I stamped the sentiment from the Flourishes Calla Lilles stamp set.

I hope you are having a great Monday and thanks for stopping by!
