I imagine most eyes will be glued to the TV this afternoon for the the Canada/US Hockey game. I know we will be watching.

Not sure where February went but it flew by. March tomorrow, and its calling for a storm so I guess it's coming in like a lion!

I just figured out how to put my name on my photo's YAY!!!
I made a diaper card. I have a pink on started not finished yet will post it once it's done.
The giraffe and reach for the stars is from the set Animal Crackers, Sweet pea is from Little Angel. Stars are made with the Big Shot.
Then you open up the diaper and this is the look you get then you open and again and
you get your announcment.
Stamp sets used here are Introducing # 114443 and the name , date etc is a retired stamp set Bundle of Joy
Now to figure out what I want to put on the girl one..
Have a Great Sunday..

Good Morning,
Oh my gosh! Can you imagine if all the rain that came down was snow? No one would be moving for days and days.
Brayden is feeling a little better this morning. His Mommy said he slept just about all night. So hopefully that means he is on the mend.
Did you see I was featured on the Blog of the day again (Feb 25th)! WooHoo. Thanks Kelly for picking me.
Check it out:
My card for today is one that caught my eye and I had to make it. Fellow demo, Lisa Baisch made one similar to this.
Melon Mambo cardstock, ink and ribbon
Whisper White card stock
Stampin'Up! Big Shot
Stampin'Up! Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder
Stamp sets: Whimsical Words, Crazy for Cupcakes
Dazzling Diamond Glitter
Ticket corner punch.

WOOHOO did you stay up to watch the Hockey Game!! I did Way to GO Canada... Though I think they got a little too confident in the last period and almost let the game slip away.. It was a nail bitter especially the last 2-3 minutes.

Thanks for peaking in today. If you haven't signed up for the Blog Candy, you have today and tomorrow to do so....

Morning Stampers,

Last night the wind was WILD! I'm surprised our house is still in place. And from looking out of the window there are little rivers everywhere. Not sure how much rain we actually got but it was calling for 100mm. Which is about 4 inches.

Brayden is a sick little boy today. Gramma wishes she was closer to help out.

Today's card is a bib card. It's made with the Stampin'Up! Big Shot scallop circle die. I used Barely Banana and Pumpkin Pie card stock. Fox and Friend, and Little Angel stamp sets.Pumpkin Pie ribbon and my white gel pen to make the doodle dots.
Happy crafting...

Hello Stampers,

I'm a little late in getting my cards posted that I promised. After we arrived home I had a nap and lazed around. The house is sure quiet with Brayden gone.

I have 2 card picks for today. My first card is using the Thoughts and Prayers Stampin'Up! set. Here I have also used the Designer Paper called Sweet Pea, Pretty in Pink Cordury button. Cardstock is Pretty in pink.

The next card is from using the stamp set Season of Friendship. Cardstock is Soft Suede, Crushed Curry and Whisper White. Crushed Curry Ribbon its polka dotted on the other side. I really like this one.

I'm happy that I get to sleep in tomorrow morning, no more 5 am wake up calls from a little voice!

I have an order going in on Tuesday if you're in need of something just give me a call or send me an email...
Have a great day...

Well Skip got up and guess where he went on the computer. Until I had everything ready to get into the car. So I will post an extra card tomorrow...

I will have a card post tomorrow. Until then Happy Stampin

Good Morning,

Wouldn't you know it I forgot my camera home last night. The girls had a great time creating. They did 4 projects.

I think today is the calm before the storm! The sun is shining but its still cold! I have a few errands to run today, want to do it before the snow flys tomorrow.

This is one of the projects the girls made. The longest thing was picking out the outfit! Lol. The girls loved it. Inside says I (heart) your beary much! Putting the LOVE on the heart was rather tricky so tiny letters.

If you think your girls would like to make something like this. Give me a call!
Have a good Wednesday..

Good Morning Stampers,

First of all I want to wish a Happy 70th Birthday to my Dad..

Did you know Stampin'Up carries charms and chains?? We do! So for today I thought I would share some of what we have.

Simply Adorned charms are like lockets—they open up so you can insert your custom stamped image. The frame surrounds tempered glass on the front and back. There’s glass on both sides of the charm, so you can display an image on one side or both. You can create a custom heirloom piece that you’ll never want to change, or you can swap artwork in and out, depending on your mood and your wardrobe. Charms are also great for holding photos.■ Nickel-plated frame with lobster clasp■ Available in several sizes and shapes■ Also great for ornaments■ Packaged in gift box

Simply Adorned 5/8 " Circle Charm

Simply Adorned 5/8" Square Charm

Simply Adorned Chain 24"

Put your custom Simply Adorned charm on a Simply Adorned chain. The stainless steel finish coordinates with Simply Adorned charms. It has an easy-to-use toggle clasp and Stampin' Up! identifier charm.■ Available in 2 lengths■ Packaged in gift box

Check out my store for more chains and charms...
Not really sure why the chain pic is so large compared to the rest.
Hope you have a great Saturday and weekend..

Hello Stampers...

I had trouble getting into post my blog this morning.. Took a few times but now I finally made it.

I'm driving a PT Cruiser while my car is being fixed. Not sure if I had mentioned or or not while I was away babysitting in January, Skip had my car and was in Tim Hortons drive thru and someone backed into him. My car is now FINALLY getting fixed.

Tonight I have a workshop I'm excited. That's 1 done on my goal, only 9 more to go . So come on book yours today... Loads of FREE product for you. Now who doesn't like FREE!!!!!!!!!!! Don't forget online orders over $200 also count your gift certificates will arrive in your mail...
My project for today is using the Glassine Envelopes # 117226 pkg of 20 for $6.95. You can find these if the Occasions mini. When I looked at them I thought these would make great wedding table favors. Filled with a little candy,(or what ever you like) punched 2 holes for the ribbon to pass thru. Stamped Thank you from the teeny tiny wishes set and then punched out with the heart to heart punch.. SO SO Cute I think...
I'm off to pack my bags for tonight. I have a list to make sure I leave nothing behind.. Nothing worse then getting somewhere and forgetting things home. (ask me how I know :) )
Have a great day. Thanks for stopping in..
