Wishing You a Sunny Day

I've been creating like crazy as many of you know I make a handmade birthday card for all my colleagues in my store. That's approximately 250 to 260 a year! Wow eh?

I LOVE to create and give. 

Today I had a colleague ask me if I forgot her birthday. When I asked her when it was she said it's October 29th. LOL. I told her that I have 9 more cards to make for October as I had 37 to make haha.

This one will be for her. Extra special since she seems to be excited to receive a card. She's been waiting all year she said. Love that!

Baby, It's Cold Outside

I've been having some fun with this Taylored Expressions kit called Baby, It's Cold Outside!
Such a cute stamp set.
I'm a sucker for anything snowmen ;)

The layout comes from the Freshly Made Sketch #447

Let's Celebrate You

Yesterday my daughter celebrated her 21st birthday and this was the card I made for her. I thought it was time I got away with the cute cards and go for something a little more grown up. Does that make sense? She's very much into plants right now so I flowers it is!
Here I used the Scribbled Roses from Taylored Expressions and the sentiment comes from SU! Celebrate Sunflowers.

The layout comes from the Paper Players #501 Challenge.

Sweet Little One

Good afternoon!

I'm off today and happy to create!
We are under a tornado warning now so I'll be keeping my eyes to the sky for the next little bit. Ack!

This morning I was in need of a baby card for tomorrow when we surprise one of my assistants. He is expecting his first child on Monday. 
Here I've used an older Taylored Expressions set and the Freshly Made Sketch #445 for my layout.

Let's Celebrate You

Good morning!

It's a chilly and raining morning here in Calgary so what better activity than to stamp! I do have some   things to do around the house but figured that could wait. Just a bit ;) 

The Paper Players had a challenge(#498) for fun and fancy folds this week. I was lucky to find that Angie from Chic 'n Scratch had a new tutorial on this cute and easy fold.

I used the new Sunflower stamp and Dies just as Angie had too :)

Wishing You All Things Fabulous

Well Hello!

I was locked out of my blog FOREVER. Finally got it somewhat going again!

I'm still a SU! demo but working full time managing a grocery store during this Covid 19 has definitely been challenging.

My escape is to create! I still create a handmade birthday card for every single colleague in my store and it's something I am passionate about. It brings people together and shows care. 

Here is one I created today using some new SU! goods.
My photo editing program is on my old Mac and I can't get it to work. So no watermarking or fancy editing for me right now LOL
Stamps: All Things Fabulous
Paper: White, Black
Ink: Magenta Madness, So Saffron, Balmy Blue, Black, Granny Apple Green
Accessories: Embossing Folder, Fabulous Florals dies, Paper Piercer, Dimesionals

I've been super busy since arriving back from vacation last weekend with work stuff and only had a day to play with some stamps. Organizing my craft space so I can get all my new goodies loaded on my shelves. In doing that I came across some oldies. Always fun to play with those too!

Here I created a card to play along with the Freshly Made Sketch #388 and the Paper Players colour challenge #441.
