Make A Wish - SSSC181

Happy Easter Sunday!

Today we'll be cooking a turkey and all the fixings! Yum!
Can't wait for dinner :)

I hope that you'll have some time soon to play along with the newest Sweet Sunday Sketch!
As you can see by my card I flipped the sketch so I could use my new Taylored Expressions stamp set and die called Oops A Daisy. Also this fabulous Quatrefoil Cutting Plate by TE too!
The designer paper is from EP that Brian picked out at the LSS.

Guest Designer this week is Alyssa Scritchfield.

Easter Greetings


This week I wanted to make something for my co-workers(all of whom are guys). I know that most of them will take them home and share/give them to their kids. 
Funny thing is that none of them thought it was weird that I made it girly...haha!
Glad they are good sports!

Thank You

Happy Friday!

So are you ready for Easter this weekend?
We are NOT....lol

The past few years have been crazy when it comes to any holiday.
Working in the retail world does not leave me a lot of time to prepare.
I only made my first Easter goodie on Wednesday night...ha!

Not much crafty time this week :(

On Sunday I played along with the Featured Stamper Challenge on SCS.

Holiday Hugs

Happy Wednesday!
Half way through the work week...yeah!

Love this cute PI Snowman!

With Sympathy

Unfortunately, I was in need of yet another sympathy card.
Believe this is the third one in less than 6 weeks :(

I always find them difficult to create so when I happened upon this card here by Julie I decided to case it.
I used two Verve sets.

Thinking of You

It's really beginning to look and feel like spring here in Calgary!
The snow is melting, the roads are dry BUT dirty and gross....lol and the temps are warming up!
Love it!
It's still early so I won't be removing my snow tires just yet ;)

Yesterday I pulled out the fabulous new MFT Pretty Posies stamp set and matching dies to create this card for the MFT Sketch #116 and also the Dynamic Duos Challenge #45 of Pretty in Pink/Regal Rose.

You Make Every Day A Happy One

Happy Happy Weekend!

Last night Brian and I went out for dinner and took the Camaro. It was fun to take her out and cruise around a bit. Avoiding as many wet spots on the road as possible! LOL!
For the most part it's dry everywhere but there is still a lot of gravel :(

Today I am going to hang out at home and maybe do a little baking and stamping.
Good times!

Here is a card I created using last week's MFT sketch #115.

Happy Birthday To A Wonderful Friend

So thankful it's Friday!

Really have no clue what the plans are this weekend but I hope to spend a good deal of time stamping. I have a bunch of cards to make.

Earlier this week I received my MFT package from the last release and was so excited to try the new Pretty Poppies stamp set and matching dies.
Just a quick 10 minute card.
I also ordered some of their inks.
They are just like the new SU! inks.
Great coverage.
Here I've used the new SnoCone and Black. I paired the SnoCone with SU Pool Party.
A little bit of stickles were added to the centers.

You Make A Difference In My Life

Hello and happy Wednesday!

Gosh has your weather been up and down as much as ours here in Calgary?
It's crazy!
One day it's at least 10C or 50F and the sun is shining with snow melting and my grass showing.
Then the next day it snows.
Yuck!

Bring on Spring!

Last weekend I created this card for two challenges.
The Freshly Made Sketch #77 and also the Dynamic Duos Challenge #44 of Black and So Saffron with a dessert option of ribbon.
Verve's Bloom & Grow along with matching Floral Circle Dies were used.

Wishing You Sunshine

Hello :)

First I want to thank everyone for their comments or emails about Snickers.
We hope that we've figured out the problem and have her on the correct medicine this time.
Only time will tell and plenty of rest for her. I don't think she likes being locked in her kennel most of the day and it's hard for her to understand I'm trying to help her ;)
We just want our old Snickers back!

Yesterday before heading to work(working the night shift...ugh) I stamped my cards for the week :)
I'm looking forward to some HAPPY mail from MFT today! Fedex SAYS it will be here by 5 pm...yeah!

This one was for the Featured Stamper on SCS.

Congratulations Nancy on being the FS319!!

I love your gallery!
A couple of your cards, here and here, inspired my card.

Puddles of Fun - Sweet Sunday Sketch #180

This week we have a wonderful Sweet Sunday Sketch for you!

I pulled out an old MFT WTG image that hasn't seen any ink in a long time!
The papers were in my stash but pretty sure they are from last summer.
I added some glossy accents to the boots and puddle and dressed up her raincoat with some mini white brads for fun!

Shamrocks

Hello

Sorry I've been so quiet this week.
I've had no desire to stamp what so ever :(
Worried about Snickers as we still don't know what's going on with her.
Yesterday we had another vet visit where they took blood to send off to the lab, gave her some fluids under her skin that absorb over 8 hours and we took her off the pain meds to see how that goes.
When I'm home I just hang out on the main floor with her. 
Hoping we get some answers this afternoon after the blood results come back.

Luckily, I stamped a lot last weekend and had my Sweet Sunday Sketch card for tomorrow created ;)

For now I have a St. Patrick's Day card using some Verve goodness!
