Good Morning Stampers...
I made it to Dartmouth, crossing on the bridge I thought I was going to be a gonner... a car pulled out in front of a truck both coming at me I had now where to go as there was vehicles on the outer lane and they had no where to go as there was vehicles in the outer lanes on that side. As the car and the truck went by me there may have been a finger of room and all I heard was scrapping metal.. When I got to Mic Mac where Tiffany works I was still shaking...
I picked Tiffany up when she was finshed work and we went to get Brayden Oh my was he ever excited when he noticed I was there too. He came down the stairs gave me a big hug and kiss, never even said Hi to his mom lol.. It's all Gramma....

Does this card look familiar to you?? Well I made it a couple of days ago and had a trim around the edge with black and frost white shimmer. There was just something about that card I didnt' really like. So I hauled it apart and this is what I came up with. I like it much better.

Happy Saturday Stampers...

Don't forget to check out the Deals of the Week icon on the right side of this page... You could be missing out... Monday will be the last week for this promotion.

Ohhh I don't know if this has ever happened to you or not. I was yawning ( yes this has happened to you I know lol), as I'm yawning the muscles in my chin ( or whatever they are) knot up and a big lump appeared and I couldn't hardly move my mouth. And boy did it ever HURT... Hours later I could still feel where it had knotted up...

Do any of you have a HP psc 950 printer?? That's what I have its old but works great. Until a few weeks ago. It will not copy. Says warming up and that's as far as it goes. Then if it should copy you can't see the image on the paper. Now I can printed from word and things like that so I know its not the ink. Any help would be great!

Here's my card pick for today. Cold and Cuddly # 116523 set of 11 for $36.95
Look the polar bear wants to share his warm drink lol... I'm thinking that the hat looks like a bell just have to figure out where I can use a bell...

Make sure to check it out something just might be calling you name... with the words after your name being -buy me, buy me lol... Thats what happened to me a a few sets in this mini. I opened the page and heard -OH Sherry buy me , no buy me... And whats a gal to do so I bought a few lol..
Well have a great day..

Did you hear the rain during the night? Oh my, did it ever rain hard..

Yesterday I held the coaster class, and what a great time we had. Always seems to laughter when you have women together! And look at some of the beautiful coasters that were made. It's hard to pick a favorite one, I like them all...

Going to used my BigShot this morning and start cutting out some things for upcoming cards...

Thursday, October 22, 2009

Good Morning,
Wow am I ever struggling with what to write here today... I think I'm just tired that is all. Yesterday was a super busy day. Make-up class went off smoothly, not that I expected it to go differently lol.
Remember I said I had joined a birthday swap awhile ago. Well here is one of the cards that I got. Isn't this monkey super cute... This card is from Donna A...
Great job...
Well I'm off to make sure I have everything ready for the coaster class this morning. I also have another one this evening.. So I guess another busy day for me...

Wednesday, October 21, 2009

Good day,
Yesterday turn out to be a nice sunny day! Gotta love those days when we can ,not many more nice days in the future I'm afraid to say.
Today is a busy day for me. This morning I'm getting my hair cut , then after lunch I will be looking after Jake for a few hours or so. And this evening I have a club make-up class.
Here's a pic of a blue jay that has been coming around with a few of his friends. Look close and you can see a sunflower seed in his mouth. Then I looked and there was Buddy looking out the window at the birds... He never even barked at them..
What a dog....
See Brayden, Gramma told you Buddy was looking at birds out
the window... Brayden gets so so excited on the phone when he talks to Buddy aka
Gramma lol...
I think I mentioned this before Brayden and his mommy check my blog each morning before daycare and work....
No Inspired by Nature today, are you sad lol.... That is such a fun set to play with. Mom came over yesterday and we practised brayering.. gonna take a while is all I have to say...
Todays card is using the stamps: Forest Friends,On Your Birthday
Card stock is Soft Suede, Bravo Burgundy Whisper White. Used Olive and Chocolate Chip markers for the images. The saying I used versa mark and white embossing powder. The Designer Paper is Thoroughly Modern. And a dimensional to pop up the owl.. cute, I know....
Have a great day

Tuesday, October 20, 2009

Good Morning,
What are your plans for the day? I'm going to start working on my next club night. As I will be having Brayden the week before so nothing will get done that week lol.. I'm going up the end of next week to get him :) YAY!!!!
Are you tired of seeing Inspired By Nature?? Well, I hope not! As today's card is another one.
I used Melon Mambo, Thoroughly Modern Designer Series Paper, Whisper White, And Chocolate Chip. Fire Square brad and the scallop oval punch. Dazzling Diamond glitter. I love how the flowers turned out...
I joined a Birthday card swap a few months ago my 18 cards arrived yesterday. They were just beautiful. So so much talent out there. I still have the Christmas ones to come. I held that up..sorry!

Happy Monday to you!

Ahh Mondays what can I say... Today I have loads of laundry to do. Where does it all come from? I'm going to try and give Buddy a bath. Hopefully he will work with me so I do not hurt my back!

I tried my hand at brayering again yesterday. It is something you need to practice with inorder to get that right look. For me right now, it seems to be a hit or miss type of a thing.

I have another card today using the stamp set Inspired by Nature. I turned the grass into cat of nine tails.. Super easy and super cute...
I haven't picked a date for the Dasher class yet. Waiting to see if Braydens Grandad comes for a visit from Iqaulit or not. Once I know that and know when I'm having Brayden for a week I will then schedule the class...
Thanks for stopping by...

Morning all,

Last time I was in Halifax I bought some 3D decoupage images I played around with them yesterday here is one that I did.. I had to use my sanding block and sand the edges a bit. Putting the car together was easy, I then had to think what do I want to go with it . This is what I came up with.. I think it makes a nice manly card. There are 2 more inmages in the pkg. that I have. Now that it's done I wish I had added a moon, Oh well.... I also used the stamp set Lovely as a Tree #115026 set of 6 for $ 36.95. And the Live Love Laugh is from the set On Your Birthday # 111664 set of 12 for $ 44.95
My 2nd card for today. Yes 2 cards in one day, I know amazing lol...
Here I used the stamp set called Inspired by Nature # 111656 set of 4 $31.95. The only thing I do not like about this set is that it's double mounted. I used Dusty Durango, More Mustard and Pumpkin Pie ink with my brayer. Chocolate chip ink on the grass. With Sympathy is from the set Teeny Tiny Wishes # 115370 set of 24 $ 48.95.
Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware # 112454 you get 200 pieces for $ 41.95. And Chocolate Chip 1/4" grosgrain ribbon.
Soo What do you think??
If you see any Stampin'Up products you like just give me a call and we can get an order in for you...

Saturday, October 17, 2009

Good Saturday Morning:

Club order arrive late yesterday afternoon. I just have a couple more to get out and everyone will have theirs. I'm hoping to see some of their new creations at our next club meeting.(hint hint)

Skip is working until noon. So I will make some cards this morning. I just got the Santa outfit for the Build a Bear so I want to make something with that.

For today I have a tag to show you. I used the stamp set Bearing Gifts its in the Holiday mini # 116531 $11.95 for the 1 stamp. I stamped the image 3 times and cut the bears body and head out pop that up cut the head out and pop that up. I think that I will add some glitter to make it more festive. Isn't this a cute set for kids gifts. Or let the kids color it in and give it added to Gramma and Grandpa's gift. ( or anyone else for that matter lol)

Have a great day and hopefully I will have lots of new creations to share with you this coming week...

The Forest friends came wandering back YAY!!! Of course the opposite side of the room where I started looking....
Morning Stampers,
I'm on the hunt for a missing stamp set. Forest Friends is missing. I searched high and low last night I will go over everything again today. It has to be here somewhere....
For the life of me I cannot figure out where it could be.
Well yesterday I worked on somemore coasters and here are 2 more samples. The snowman one is hard to see but in real life its cute. I added a little bit of stampin' pastels for color... AFTER I find forest friends I will work on more coasters. Positive thoughts here!!!
Hard to believe it's Friday already. I need to get busy and get things done.. For 1 I need to start making my Christmas List..
Have a great day and a wonderful weekend...

Thursday, October 15, 2009

Good Morning,
Today is Brayden's 2nd Birthday... Happy Birthday!!! This is one of the cards I made for him...
Yesterday I worked on this Christmas Planner. I really like how it turned out and will be making more.. The hardest part was trying to figure how to get the papers printed on the computer. Here I used retired Designer Paper, Snowflake from the hostess set Christmas Punch. I have 3 different views for you to see. Front, Middle and opened. The tabs say: ToDo, Card List, Wish List, Gifts, Menu, and Notes. The 1st tab is the only one printed in each section.
So what do you think, cute?? I know it will come in handy once the Christmas shopping starts. I always either think I bought something and didn't or buy it and put it away and forget where. When I buy a gift I will be able to write it done now and keep track
Until tomorrow

Good Morning,

I don't know about you but I'm not that computer savy! There always seems to be somthing going on with this computer that I do not know how to fix or what is causing the problem. Yesterday the computer started not saving sites that I have passwords to, that I have ok'd to be kept. It gets frustrating when you may visit the site a few times during the time you sit down at the computer... Ok enough about this...

I have to run to the mail off a couple of things.

So lets get to the card of the day... Yay!!!
It's a Birthday card... Here I used the Beary Best Friends and Beary Nice Wishes stamp sets..
Punches: Corner rounder, modern label (trimmed down) and 3/4" circle and 1 of the flowers from the Boho Blossoms.
Card Stock: Basic Grey, Certainly Celery, Summer Sun, Whisper White.
Bold Bright brads.
Yikes..... There is a huge spider coming my way.... eeekkk......

I wanted to watch CSI and don't you suppose I fell asleep in the middle of the show! Guess I missed that. Oh I'm sure that some day there will be a rerun.

Here is my card for today other than the words its all punches. I used the large and small oval punches. For the pumpkins I punched them out 3 time for each pumpkin and sponged around the edges. Then I layered them for form a pumpkin shape. I just made the stem with my scissors. The Ghost are the oval punch again and I drew on the face. Very simple and cute... I think I'm about done with Halloween now. Now I will be moving on to my favorite time of the year Christmas..
