You're Out of This World

Hello!

This has been a crazy week. No free time really :(
Think I need another vacation! LOL!
Lucky for me I still have one more week to take before December!!!

Last Sunday I made a couple of cards using the Freshly Made Sketch #200
This one uses stamps and dies from Reverse Confetti.
I just LOVE this globe die! So many fun sentiments in the set too!

I stamped the dots with one of my fave SU! colours called Strawberry Slush. LOVE the new SU! ink pads....so much better than the old. They are so juicy!
I die cut the globe a few times with different cardstock colours so I could piece it the way I wanted.

Let It Snow

Hello!

Last weekend as I was cleaning up my desk area I came upon this piece of polka dotted cardstock that I made sometime ago. Then I found a piece of watercolour paper that I had distressed a bit too! Do you ever make things and then set them aside? Forget about them? Then it's like Christmas when you find it?! LOL!
I decided I should use those pieces before they were lost yet again ;)
I loved the SU! Holiday catty (that will be available to order from in September).
This Hearth and Home Die is awesome!!!
The stamp set is called Happy Scenes.

Celebrate

Ok seriously....well maybe not....lol but I think this is my last card to share with you using the Smooshing Technique.
I think this is my favourite card that I've made lately.
Chloe helped me decide on the sequins. Originally I wanted to add balloons but then that would cover up the pretty background ;)

You Keep Me Anchored

Hi there!

The girls at the Color Throwdown had me stumped last week with the colours!

I thought wow these are so pretty together but every single thing I tried looked horrible.
Then on Sunday I thought I'd give that smooshing technique using acetate a go.
I LOVE that technique and am hooked! You'll see several cards made with it soon :)
I also used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch for my layout.
This card uses a fun MFT die that matches the Go Overboard stamp set.
I gave the anchor three coats of UTEE for a little shine ;)

Thanks

Friday!!! 
For most it likely means the weekend but those of us in retail often work weekends.
That's me! LOL!

Since I still had the supplies on my desk from yesterday's card I decided to use them again for the SCS Free 4 All Challenge - use three dies or three punches on your project.

Again I did a light colour wash onto a couple pieces of mixed media paper and then die cut three butterflies with one of them after it had dried.

Life Is Good

Hello :)

Remember last week when I said that orange, yellow and pink were coming up?
Well here is one card I created for today's Ways To Use It Challenge on SCS.

Last Thursday was Leftie day. 
So the challenge was to use the left side of your card as your main focus.
Easy and fun!

I did a light colour wash over a mixed media piece of paper and let it dry. 
Then I die cut some pretty butterflies to match.

A Christmas Wish For You

Hello :)
Made it to Wednesday!
Yeah! Today we are having a BIG BBQ at work to celebrate our newest campaign called 
Feed Everyone.
The weather is supposed to be nice and I'm keeping my fingers crossed it's not windy.
Wind is always an issue in Lethbridge....lol

Here is a card I created for the SCS sketch553 last week.
It's a SU only card that uses all the new goodies from the upcoming holiday catty!

Flurry of Warm Christmas Wishes

Hi there!

Today I have a shaker card to share with you that I created with last week's SCS sketch 553.
It's been ages since I created one of these. 
So fun!
This is a SU only card created with goodies from the upcoming Holiday Catty.
The sequins are from the dollar store and I've had them for years.

If you are Canadian and interested in ordering SU from me, please let me know :)

Special

Happy Sunday!

It's back to work tomorrow. Yippee!
I always have mixed emotions about back to work vs vacation.

I was blessed to have quite a bit of stampy time this past week. More than usual. 

Here is a card I created for Tuesday's Colour Challenge on SCS.
I've been wanting to CASE a card of Laurie's that I saw here for a couple of weeks. Loved the colour blocking and the vellum overlay.

Thanks a Bunch - Mojo410

Well vacation time is almost over and to be honest I'm actually ready to get back to work on Monday.
As much as I loved having crafty time, not going anywhere for vacation sucked.
Boring. Nothing to do in this heat but stay indoors.

I did enjoy making several cards this week :)
Probably the highlight of my time off!

Here is a card I created on Monday using the Mojo sketch.
Julee always has such fun ones!
I used a fabulous Verve set called Bloom & Grow.
Originally I wanted to add Strawberry Slush to this but it just didn't work.
Pink Orange Yellow seemed like a pretty combo(one I used later in the week which you'll see another day).

Friendship

ahhhh vacation!

Although I decided not to go to the States like we normally do(the Canadian dollar sucks) I still took a week off work to unwind.
Looking forward to the GREAT weather we are having. In the 30's(90F) most of the week.
Might make a trek out to the mountains or something for a day trip.

I am patiently waiting for my new SU! goodies to arrive on Wednesday!
I signed up again to be a demo to get the discount and paper that I just can't find anywhere anymore. All of the local scrapbooking stores have closed up. Everything is done online these days which is fine EXCEPT when the Canadian dollar is as bad as it is :(

This afternoon I created a card using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch and the CAS challenge on SCS(Waves of Colour).
My first interpretation is simple. Waves.
I am working on a more colourful card though ;)
I used a cute Verve stamp set called Text Objects.

{heart} this

Holy cow!
Summer is flying by!
I can't believe it's August already.

Today I had the opportunity to play along with a few challenges!

1. Dare To Get Dirty Challenge
2. Paper Players making a square card
3. Sweet Sunday Sketch

I watercoloured a bit of pink and splatters for the background. The butterfly was created by mixing a few colours on a stamping block, spritzing and then smooshing it on a piece of watercolour paper. Once dry I die cut using a SU! framelit.
