Thank You :)


I hope you are enjoying summer so far!
We have been having some intense heat here and I LOVE it!
Mind you, I do spend a lot of time indoors where it's

Today I hope to find some stamping time.

You're So Vintage

Hello :)

I haven't had much time to get inky this past week. Well if I'm being honest, I did last week but the weather has been AMAZING! That means I need to be outside enjoying it! LOL!

Tomorrow Brian and I are driving Chloe to my sister's house in BC so she can spend the week with them. She's so excited! Brian and I are looking forward to seeing the family too :) Our visit will be short though as we have to turn around the next day and drive back home for work. Bummer! haha!

Here is a card I created using Jen's Deconstructed Sketch a couple of weeks ago.
I've used a new stamp set from Stampin' Up! called That Thing You Did.
I wanted to use some darker colours for once. I've been on light summery colours and I'd forgotten how much I love Chocolate Chip and Pumpkin Pie together! I added a pop of red with the button and itty bits of ink.

Hope You're Feeling Special Today

Happy Monday!

Back to work after having the weekend off. 
Always a day of mixed emotions haha!
Excited to see what happened at work and frightened at the same time....

Here are a couple of cards I created yesterday.
I combined the Paper Players Challenge of Pool Party, Island Indigo and Real Red with Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch.
This first one uses a new SU! set called Garden In Bloom. Beautiful 2 step floral set. I can see myself reaching for it often :)

You are So Kind


Once again I've fallen off posting as often as I'd hoped.
Maybe I need to go back to scheduling my posts for the entire

Here are a few more cards I have to share with you.
This one is a SU! only card using some new goodies!
This one is for a Paper Players Challenge a couple of weeks ago. Using PTI stamps.

I've been such a bad blogger :(
Getting here to post seems to be a little bit of a stretch and I hope I can find the time to turn that around!
Creating and sharing cards is something that I love to do.

I'll share a couple of cards that I have created in the last little while.
For the Freshly Made Sketch #187.
Stamps: Happy Birthday, EveryonePaper: White, Coastal Cabana, Strawberry Slush, Cucumber CrushInk: Cucumber Crush, Coastal Cabana, Strawberry SlushAccessories: SU Dots and Stripes Decorative Masks, Sponge Daubers, MFT dies, Dimensionals

Since I still had the SU! Mask on my desk I thought I'd use it for the Paper Players Challenge #246 - sketch.

Wishing You Sunshine


I've been lucky to have quite a bit of stampy time this weekend!
If the weather wasn't so nice I'd be down here stamping non-stop but it's nice out and the fresh air is awesome!

I just finished this card for Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #270.

I used some fun Reverse Confetti Stamps and Dies.

Just A Note


This week is half way through for me and I cannot wait for the weekend!!!
I have a few plans on Saturday morning and then the rest of the weekend is all about stamping!

Last week I created a card for a couple of challenges.
The Ways To Use It Challenge on SCS - Flowers and also Jen's Deconstructed Sketch Celebration #200.
I chose to use an older sketch #35
Stamps: Botanical SilhouettesPaper: Real Red, Lemon, WhiteInk: Real Red, Old Olive, BlackAccessories: Scallop Die, Sewing, Dimensionals

Yesterday my SU! box of new sneak peek goodies arrived!
I only ordered a few things and am not yet convinced that the newest In Colours are something I'll reach for very often.
Of all the colours I think I like the Cucumber Crush the best. It's bright and fun!
I created this SU! only card using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch.

The balloon was created using washi tape from the new Cherry On Top design to match the designer series paper.
The sentiment comes from the Celebrate Today stamp set.

I was so excited to have a few minutes to play along with today's CAS challenge SCS.
Created a thank you card for Chloe.
She spoiled me this past weekend for Mother's Day.
I truly am SO lucky to have her as my daughter.
Here's a shot Brian got of us laughing about something. My eyes are half open but I still love the photo.
