Thank You FS329

Happy Hump Day!
Is it just me or has this felt like the LONGEST week ever?!
I sure hope things settle down at work soon. Summer is here and I love being able to get out in the evenings. Whether it's to relax on the deck, take a walk or go for a bike ride around the pond with Chloe.
Lately, I've had no energy when I get home. Bummer.

Sunday was an awesome Featured Stamper day!
Vicki was chosen and she has an amazing gallery and blog!
Love her clean style.
I picked a couple of cards to CASE.
This was one of them and you can see her original one here.
Changed the shades of blue, different stamps and dies as well as different pattern paper.

Life Is About Using The Whole Box Of Crayons - FMS87

Hello :)

Gosh I'm so glad I had some great stamping time last weekend. 
I love to play along with so many wonderful challenges out there.
One that I try to play along with weekly is the Freshly Made Sketch.
They always have a wonderful CAS layout for us.
I combined a couple of Reverse Confetti stamp sets to create this card for the sketch.


I LOVE this sentiment! Isn't it awesome!?!
The images from Peacock Pretties were stamped in Real Red and Daffodil Delight. A 1" circle punch works perfectly with those cute little images :)
Stamps: I Like You, Peacock PrettiesPaper: White, Marina Mist, MME Playdate DPInk: Black, Real Red, Daffodil DelightAccessories: 1" Circle Punch, Dimensionals

You Make My World Happy - SSSC185

Hello :)

Are you ready for another WONDERFUL sketch?!
This week there is a fabulous Sweet Sunday Sketch for you. Check it out!
Yesterday Brian and I started to clean out the basement and I came across a whole box of paper pads from last summer. Several of them only had odds and ends left in them so they went into the recycle box but I had to make something with this fun paper!
Pulled out one of my ALL TIME favourite Pure Innocence Girls from MFT.
Just love this little cutie pie!

Happy Father's Day

Happy weekend!!!

It's raining here so this will be the perfect time to do a little spring cleaning around the house.

Of course you know I'll sneak a little bit of stamping at some point ;)

Last weekend I created this card for the Dynamic Duos Challenge #53 Pacific Point/Basic Black
and

Hello Friend

Happy Wednesday!
Oh how I LOVE a short work week....ha!

Last weekend while stamping away I found a few goodies that hadn't seen the light of day for some time.

A fairly quick and simple card to showcase this beautiful set :)

Bundle of Joy - Mojo 294

Good morning

First of all I want to send my thoughts and prayers to all of those affected by the tornados in Oklahoma.
Such devastation and so many lives lost.

I did create this card earlier in the day for the Mojo Monday Sketch #294.

Be Strong

Happy Monday!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the weather holds out today and we can have a nice family day together in the great outdoors!
If the sun is out and we hear that there is no rain in the forecast we are heading to Banff first thing in the morning! It's sooooooooo beautiful there!
Good times!

Yesterday I did stamp a little bit in between shopping, errands and cleaning.
This was a card I created using the MFT sketch #124.

Happy Birthday - FS327

Good Friday Morning!

Happy Long Weekend to those that are able to enjoy it!
Our weather here is going to be crappy :(
Rain which we NEED but that means no real outdoor time.
I shouldn't complain because it COULD be snow, right? ha!

Last Sunday I played along with the Featured Stamper #327 on SCS and cased Silke's card here.
I stamped the background script and flowers in Wisteria Wonder. Wow I can't recall the last time I opened that ink pad. The stems and sentiment were stamped in Lucky Limeade. A little bit of Stickles were added to the poppy for pizzazz ;)
Thanks for stopping by today!

Flower Girl - Freshly Made Sketch

Happy Wednesday and half way through the work week!
I'm off on a road trip to Cranbrook today and tomorrow. 
No more little puddle jumpers until fall...yeah!
Love the drive! It's so pretty!

Anyway, I had a lot of time this past weekend to do whatever I wanted and of course I chose stamping :)
This was another card I created using the Freshly Made Sketch from last week.
I tried to mimic the flowers in the designer paper rather than just colouring up the daisy she was holding in her hand.
Stamps are from MFT and paper is Doodlebug.

This card above makes me dream of my gardens growing :)
I combined the Freshly Made Sketch #85 with the Dynamic Duos Anniversary Challenge of choosing an old colour challenge. I chose to DD #18 of Pure Poppy and Lucky Limeade.

Let's Celebrate You - MFT Sketch #123

Hello :)

Yesterday I did manage to sneak a few quiet hours into my stamp room. It was heavenly!!
I haven't coloured an image up for a bit and when I'm itching to dig out the copics I typically reach for a cute PI image from MFT.
