Adventure Awaits

Happy Monday!

Happy 16th Birthday to our daughter 
Chloe!

Today I'm taking her to Edmonton so her and her friend can see the 5 Seconds of Summer concert.
I'm sure they will have a blast!!

Here is a card I created for her last week.
It was for the Ways To Use It Challenge - Reinkers on SCS.
I cased a card I saw on Pinterest here.

I used some fun Reverse Confetti stamps and dies :)

Color Throwdown #352

Hello and Happy Wednesday!!!

I'm so excited to share that I was the....


This week I'm playing along with the awesome bunch of stampers over there and these are the colors...

At first I thought the colors would make a fantastic masculine card but as you can see from my cards below I think I may have gotten a little off track. That's the beauty of stamping/crafting....you just never know where your creativity will take you!!!
First up is a Verve card created with one of my all time favourite sets called Better With You.


Next up is a Stampin' Up only card created with Watercolor Wings and That Thing You Do.
I watercoloured the background using Lucky Limeade and Coastal Cabana.

I hope you'll stop by the Color Throwdown blog and play along today!
There will be a lot of wonderful inspiration there too!!!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hi there....Hello...

Hello!

Gosh the weather has been so nice that when I do have a day off or a few short hours I prefer to be sitting outdoors enjoying the weather. Summers are short here and I need to take advantage of it while I can.
Winter will be here soon enough and I hibernate then ;)

Here are a couple of cards that I created for some challenges lately.
This one uses a Freshly Made Sketch and also colours from the Color Throwdown blog(which my card was chosen  too...yeah) So stay tuned for a card using their colours this week as I was invited to play along! Fun!
This is a Stampin' Up! only card as well.

Here is another one I created using the Color Throwdown #350 and the Sweet Sunday Sketch #277.
I really like these colours together :)

Sweet Moments

Happy Weekend!

I actually have a three day weekend but very little stampy time.
The weather is beautiful and since it's summer there is so much to do!
Not to mention that the puppy rarely gives me a chance to sit long enough to make a card...lol

This morning we went to a local Farmer's Market and then a bakery.
Early afternoon while it was a little overcast Chloe and I decided to head out for a walk around the lake.
It was gorgeous! 

Here is a card that I created last week for a couple of challenges.
Color Throwdown #349
and
Freshly Made Sketch #251

This is a Stampin' Up! only card too :)

Thanks a Latte

Hi :)

Having a new puppy in the house means less time in my stamp room.
I forgot how much stuff I have laying around that little chompers like to munch on ;) LOL!

Now I will have to sneak in my stamp room when she's sleeping. 
Snickers was always really good with my stuff but then she wasn't a puppy when I started stamping 10 years ago.

Here's a card I created for the Paper Players Sketch from last week.
I used some older Verve stamps that I still love :)
This one I'll keep in my desk at work for one of the guys.
