Enjoying my time....


Good Morning..
I made this card for Brayden awhile ago and never sent it off. Well its was sent off this week before I left. Hopefully it arrive before I do.
I will be seeing Brayden a little later this morning.
Having load of fun with Annette.
This is just a short post.
Catch you all later...

Having Fun....

I'm here in Bridgewater with my friend Annette. Having a blast... Lots of laughs, and crafting going on. Annette and I have been friends for close to 35 years. WOW do I dare say that out loud!!
Today we are going shopping. Sounds like lots of fun to me...

Good Morning,

I had this post all ready, just reading it over and the page said it had an error and shut down. Of course nothing is saved then.

I will be leaving town about 9:30 this morning if I can get myself in gear! Last night I packed up my craft supplies, then I went through it and took things out lol.. still have a bit to bring.

Here is a crayon resist card. This is the first time I did this technique. The hardest thing is trying to remember just where you made your white crayon marks on the white paper.

Don't forget to save the date May 9th from 9:30-1:30 Maple Grove Education Center GYM. Local demo's are getting together an putting on a Spring Fling.
Admission is $2.00.
Lots of Make 'n' Takes. Cards $2.00, Scrapbook pages $5.00. And plenty of ways to earn a ballots for the prize draws.. Stop by when you can, I'm looking forward to see you there.

Well, I'm off to finish up the last minute things before I hit the road.
Have a good week. I will try and get a post or 2 in if I can.
Thanks for stopping by..

Blue Monday....

Hi Stampers.

Here we are the beginning of a new week. And the last week of April at that!

What are your plans for this fine Monday morning? Here are some interesting facts about Mondays:

Are also referred to as "Blue Monday." The name is thought to have started because the first day of the work week used to be set aside for doing the laundry. Bluing was used to keep white clothes from becoming dingy and gray. From that product, wash day became known as "Blue Monday." Even though Monday isn't always wash day today, the term "Blue Monday" still exists. However, it's meaning is different. It now refers to the day when employees have to return to work after a weekend break. Another interesting fact about Monday, the second day of the week, is it's the most likely day for workers to have heart attacks. The British Medical Journal reported a 20% increase in heart attacks on Mondays as opposed to the other days of the week. The attacks may be caused by stress and high blood pressure caused by returning to work. So if your going to work today, try to stay calm.

Today I will be doing the laundry, and getting things ready as I'm leaving town tomorrow for the rest of the week. One of my hardest things to do today, is to figure out what craft supplies I want to bring. We are going to scrapbook and make cards! I can't bring everything so I will have to try and narrow it down.. This will be my Monday stress lol... Then when I come back Cody will be leaving for 3 weeks. He will be coming home on weekends though.

Here's another card we made on Saturday. I think that Thank you is just so elegant. Hence the name of the stamp Elegant Thank You. This is on page 208 of the catalogue. And right now until the end of the month you can get this for FREE. All you have to do is spend $50.00 from the occasions mini. You can see the mini here to the right side of your page just click on it and it will load for you.
If you do want to shop you can either use your credit card and shop from my Stampin'Up! web site (link on right side of page) or send me an email. I will be checking my mail when I'm gone. This offer ends April 30th. I have to recieve your emails by no later than 7pm Thursday.

Lovely as a Tree...

What a beautiful day we had yesterday. Looking forward to see many more like that.

This is just one of the cards we made in class. Came out great I think. Only going to post the one card. Need some cards for posting when I'm gone for a few days...
Last night I worked for quite awhile on getting some pictures on a disk so I can go and print them off later on. I'm hoping that by getting the pic I will scrapbook more. Seems like lately I have been just making cards and the scrapbooking is falling to the side. WELL no more I say.... LOL...
Looking back over the pictures Wow its hard to believe the changes in Brayden. He is growing so fast. Can't wait to see him this week, and have Gramma time :)

Good Saturday Morning!

Hello there,

My SU order arrived WOW was it a fast moving one, 10 days to get here including the weekend... Then once it arrive it was sorted and most of it was sent on within the hour. A few of the people are out of town so they will get their goodies later..

I was up late working on cards for todays class. Now I know this is pushing it. I think they girls will like what I planned out. I will post pic later of the cards.

This card looks really pretty in real life.. Very simple to make. You could stamp anything underneath the flowers. The stampin' wheels would work good with this too. I like the card but I think it needs something else. Maybe something in the middle of the flowers. What do you think. It is a pretty card already and maybe its just me thinking it needs more. I saw a similar card on a blog , when I was surfing. Now I cannot find it .
Have a great day

Look at my find....

Good Morning

Have you ever had a song in your head and it just will not leave?? I have had this song in my head for 2 days now soon I will be crazy. And the worse thing is its only the same 2 -4 lines that are going through all the time. The song is a Kid Rock song, Roll On.

My blood pressure still not right on, yesterday was a little better than the day before. I will keep monitoring it.

Today my SU order is suppose to arrive. Yeah... Hopefully it comes this morning.. Well it happened once! Most times it arrives after 2pm. If it does come today it will be one of the fastest orders I have recieved.

Look at the Boxes I found at dollarama yesterday...
I was going to go back and buy more, but sadly heard they were gone. Guess I went there at the right time.
The larger one is almost the same size as my photo boxes I have from Michaels.
Have a safe and happy weekend...

More Rain....

My gosh, did it ever rain hard last night. Soon we will be floating away. Once these showers (if that's what you want to call them) move out we are in for some beautiful weather with a little bit of warmth to go with!!

Yesterday my blood pressure was all over the map. I'm hoping that today it will be a little more calm.

This first card I made with the Rockabilly Speciality Designer Paper. And one of the butterflies from Flight of the Butterfly. Along with Riding Hood Red ribbon. Why is it always so hard to cut into that designer paper? I find I want to hang onto it. I noticed that I picked it up looked at every piece in the set, rubbed my fingers across it (LOL), put it down and really thought hard if I should cut it or not. But as you can see I broke down and made a cut. You know if I use it up I can always buy more. I just have a hard time getting my brain to understand this. I also did a little different take on this Big Buckle card than the one I posted a few days ago.

The flower stamp set is from Inkadinkdo. It was one of my Secret Easter Gifts. Remember those fabulous boxes I recieved, this set was in one of them.

The hummingbird is from the 3rd level hostess rewards Dream a Little.

Have a Great Thursday!!

Hi again!!

I have been sitting here for about 15 minutes now trying to think of what to write.. Isn't that just sad...

My crafting area was all nice and clean, not really sure what happened. As it's surly not clean NOW. What keeps me going is knowing there are other room and desks that look just like mine and some are worse!!(that's what I like to think anyways). If it was clean do you think I would feel more creative?? Hmmm will have to think on that one.
Here is one of the metal stars I made. Don't look too close you will see my finger prints. not really sure what I can use to get them off. See not bad at all!
Yesterday was a lazy day for me. I think the dreary weather played a big hand in that. But I did manger to bake a blueberry cake. And I did make 1 card will take a picture today so I can post it tomorrow.
I have to get some post ahead as next week I will be away from Tuesday -Saturday. I'm going to visit a very good friend in Bridgewater then to Dartmouth to visit a Special little person... And his Mommy and Daddy too who are also special....

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

I think I got it....

I'm pretty sure that I have the metal stars figured out. I will try again today and see if it turns out the same.. This accomplishment is making me feel quite happy... I ruined a lot of metal in the process but if the end results are good that's ok I guess. The one thing I have to learn is not to get my fingers stuck to the star. Leaves nasty finger prints lol...

The card today I used Peel-Offs in the Daisies set.
I used blender pens and ink to color the image in.
I sponged the bottom and used the sponge daubers for the sky.
Looks really in nice in person...
Don't forget that just alittle over week left for the April Special. Spend $50.00 in the occasions mini and get one FREE item from page 208 in the 2009 idea book & catalogue.. And if you host a $200. workshop you also get one for FREE... Who doesn't like FREE!
Thanks for stopping by....

Happy Birthday Mom !!!!!!!

It's Moms birthday today... So Happy Birthday to you.... Yesterday I gave her the card I made. I think this came out really nice....
I saw one similar on SCS.
You know I think the cards some how change color a bit when they go on this site. As the orginal seems much brighter.
Last night I sat down and planned out the cards for the Spring Fling May 9th. And now I need to send an order into Stampin' UP! so I will have enough supplies. Good thing I didn't wait any longer to plan things out.
Looking for a fun filled evening with your girlfriends. Hostess a workshop with me. Workshops are Free. So gather your friends and lets have some fun... Give me a call or email and I will let you know what dates are available.
Have a Happy Monday...

Sunday, April 19, 2009

OH My....

Oh my indeed.... I spent a good part of yesterday making metal stars! As I have a class coming up in May on them. Well, metal works nothing like paper lol.. I might have to call it a faux metal star class if I cannot get my folds to work right. Getting better, Skip told me not to show the first one as it is sad!! I will keep on trying and when I get it right you will see my finished product. There has to be an easier way just need to figure out WHAT IT IS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I found this letter s at Dollarama and covered it with Bella Rose DSP. Added some flowers and ribbon turned out cute... Now I'm thinking I should go back and see what other letters they have maybe there is enough to spell out Create, Dream, Baby ohhh lots options. If and that's a big IF they have the letters.
Did you know Husband Appreciation Day was yesterday? I didn't make a card but I'm sure he knows how I feel! I will have to mark the date down so I will remember next year... Wonder who came up with that day... Any reason to make a card is always a good day...
Going to work on my metal stars again today..And I would like to make a card or 2. I also need to plan on what make 'n takes I'm doing for the Spring Fling in May... Really I could start cutting for that now.
Have a great day.

I saw these in the Paper Craft Magazine. The only one I'm not really happy with is the lion I think his head looks too much like a bear... I will have to see if I can come up with a lion head.

Have a Great Weekend....

Friday, April 17, 2009

Happy Friday Morning to You!

Another week has past by. Yesterday I heard lots of birds out singing. Spring is there just trying to find us!

I had a very productive day yesterday. My creative juices were flowing...
I just love how this card turned out. I used the stamp set Seaside #113512. Night of navy, very vanilla, clost to cocoa card stock. Took a sponge dauber in creamy carmel and ran it all over the very vanilla. Glittered the star fish with Dazzling Diamonds and made my knots with hemp twine... And the from Heard from the heart #111644 I stamped in black stazon, may all your wishes come true. Its a little hard to see the saying in this photo.
I will save my other creations for another day lol... one that I'm not feeling that creative on...
Have a great weekend. And if your a Prison Break fan its on TONIGHT!!!! I can hardly wait. Only 5 episodes though :( Not sure why...
Thanks for taking the time to read my blog...

A little frosty early this morning. Yesterday I managed to get another scrapbook page done, a box and 2 cards woohoo for me...

And here's my first BELLA isn't she just cute... I really enjoyed making this card

Just Moved how cute.... The Neighbourhood stampin wheel ,# 109685. This is the Jumbo wheel. Just moved! is from Loads of Love Accessories #115024. I also used the Big Shot texturz plates #114512.

I tried my hand at this box and

I think it came out pretty good

for my first one.

No SU products used on here.

The sides of the box have the same DSP around it and the inside bottom too.
Hmmm wonder what I will create today...

The link I posted was not working it is fixed now !

Good Monday Morning!

I thought spring had arrived! Guess old man winter just doesn't want to give up and go away just yet. I found it so so cold last night.
Skip and I were invited out to dinner, Alice make a delicious meal for us. Then we played dominoes, I don't think I have every played before, lots of fun!!
Made this flower pot card isn't it cute.... The flowers pull up to reveal the card. Hmmm seems like I didn't take this photo. (will add it later)
I think one of the tricks to this card is have large flowers.. I thought that this would be hard to do its super easy.
Check out the instructions on this blog:
You will notice that I changed mine a bit from this one.
Have a creative day...

Good Morning...

Hello Stampers,

After all the rain it was nice to see the sun come out and the weather warm up! If it keeps up like this we will need to mow the lawn pretty soon.
Wow, isn't this cute. It's a carrot box..and inside there are special treats! I just love it ... Very easy to make. I used Only Orange card stock and scraped Tangerine Tango ink down the sides . Used a small green ribbon(not SU) and then used the bunny from the Eight Great Greetings, and the tag punch..
Heres to another creative day....
Hope you enjoy yours....

Good Morning Stampers

Hi all,

Last night I was at a meeting with the other local demos and we did a swap. Love swaps.... some of the gals were absent for various reasons so there was just a few of us. Everything is coming together for the Spring Expo.. You guys are going to love what is planned.

Here are the swap cards can you say cute??
The dad one is what I made for the swap. These gals are just so talented. I don't think we have ever swaped the same image!
Don't forget about the Stamp Buffet on Friday 10-4. stop by and make how many cards you like. Can't get a better deal in town..
Today I will be designing and cutting for the stamp buffet and thinking about club night...
Until tomorrow, have a creative day..

This week I have to get some serious stampin done !! Came home yesterday with the intentions of getting creative, but that never happened. So day is the day... Ohh wander what goodies I will have to show you tomorrow. Tonight I have a meeting with other local demos and we are swapping.

This is a card we made in out Just Buzzin By class a few weeks ago.
I really enjoy this stamp set..

Saturday, April 4, 2009


Well it has been quite the week. I have missed stamping. Skip and I are bringing Brayden back home later this morning. We will spend the night with Tiffany and Junior and come home Sunday morning. I'm sure the roads are like a river today. We had HEAVY rain last night. Just after dinner it was raining very hard and hitting the window, Brayden was just standing still and watching and pointing to the window. Wonder what he was thinking.
Brayden's eczema started to get better I thought at the beginning of the week. NOW it looks terrible, poor little baby so so itchy!
This will be my post for the weekend I will get back into it on Monday morning,with something new to show you!
Take alook a the new postings on the sidebar.

1. 2.
This is all that I managed to get done today. I will have alot of work next week to get caught up.
