You Are Not Forgotten - MFT Sketch #165

Happy Friday!

Winter looks to be making a come back here in Lethbridge. At least for a few days. A little snow and a lot of cold/windchill. Fantastic. Ugh.

I've got another mixed media card to share with you.
This was actually the first one I created on Wednesday and really like how this one came out too. 
I used the MFT sketch.
Using the modelling paste and stencils is so fun! The only problem is the dry time. Those that know me, know I'm not a patient person....lol. I like to get my cards done in less than 30 minutes. That does NOT happen with modelling paste.

Never Forget - SC477

Hello :)

Yesterday was my day off and it was such a blessing!

I've admired all this mixed media that everyone is doing lately and I finally took a little baby step into it.
I picked up some stencils and some modelling paste which I tinted with reinker to create this card for the SCS sketch #477.
While the background was still wet I sprinkled on some glitter.

You're A Life Saver

Hello :)

Monday afternoon I had some good quiet inky time while home alone.
I really miss my crafting time :(
I don't feel guilty stamping when there isn't anyone at home but when my family is here I prefer to spend it with them ;)

Karen had a wonderful Sweet Sunday Sketch posted and I really wanted to make a card for one of my Assistant Store Managers who has helped me so much.

Forget Me Not - Dynamic Duos

Good Tuesday morning!

Well looks like I have a full blown cold. I really thought I was going to make it through this winter season unscathed. Darn! LOL!

I have tomorrow off and I think I'll just rest up and sneak in a few cards ;)

Here is another card I created for the Dynamic Duos Challenge.
I just love these bright colours together!

Call Me!

Hello :)

Last week I was able to ink up some new MFT goodies but not all of them. Yesterday I had some time to get inky and couldn't wait to use this new die and stamp set.
So fun!

The colours come from the Dynamic Duos Challenge #91.
Fabulous, right?

Celebrate Your Special Day

Good Saturday Morning

Sure seems weird to not be at work first thing but I'm working the late shift tonight.

Doodling Made Easy - TLC469

Hello :)

Today I'm hosting the TLC on SCS. I hope that you'll have a chance to play along!


I've seen a lot of cards on Pinterest lately with a negative die cut and then outlined with a white gel pen.

Here is one of my samples for today :)
Pretty simple technique....place die....trace....cut
Thanks for stopping by today!

You Make My Heart Happy

Hello :)

I received the newest MFT release today but I haven't had a chance to get inky since the other day.
This weekend I'll find sometime to do just that!

Thursday morning I played along with the Ways To Use It Challenge #466 on SCS - Red and also the Deconstructed Sketch to create the card below.

You Make Me Happy - MFT sketch #163

Today was a busy day off!
Brian and I spent the day together looking at houses :)
Hopefully we can decide on something to either buy or build this spring!

I did manage to sneak in a card before picking Chloe up from school too!
Great day!

Here's my quick card!
I used some Echo Park designer paper and a MFT sentiment.

We Make The Perfect Blend - DS137

Wednesday turned out to be a good crafty afternoon for me!
I decided to put off doing the laundry in favour of getting a little inky :)

Jen had posted the Deconstructed Sketch early on Facebook and I totally took advantage of it!
Once again I decided to go with the Taylored Expressions stamp and die set called Joe to Go.
Thanks for stopping by today!

We Make The Perfect Blend!

Hello :)

Long time no see!
I've thought about just shutting my blog down because I haven't had the time to create like I used to.
BUT
I'm going to start making time to do the things I love.
Spending time with my family, stamping, reading, baking....
It's all about finding that balance :)

Today was the first time in a couple of weeks that I could get into my stamp room.

Looking up a couple of challenges I created the card below.

I ordered from Taylored Expressions weeks ago and this was the first time I opened my package! What a shame! 
Here I've used the fun die and stamp set called Joe To Go.
Thanks for stopping by today!
