Snow Day


This has been a weird week at work for me.
Normally I have a team that I work with but with holidays and other things going on I've been on my own all week and it sort of makes the days DRAG....ugh.
 If I can just get through the next couple of days I'll be fine because then it's Labour Day 3 day weekend!!

This is another card I created using the MFT September sketch.
Pulled out some My Mind's Eye Papers and the uber cute Snow Day girl.
I added some Dazzling Diamonds to the white snowflake and a tiny heart.
Hard to see in the photo but I traced the snowballs and ground with a spica pen.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Well Read Bookmark

Good Wednesday Morning!

Yesterday I had an out of town trip for work and that always makes my week go by that!
Although when I get home after all that driving I am super tired and have no energy to stamp :(

Luckily on Monday evening I had time and energy to play along with Joan's TLC on SCS.
You were to make this really simple bookmark using scraps of paper.
Mine was a 2.5 x 11 piece of kraft.
I added some MME dp that had a pretty floral pattern in the corner. Two rows of polka dot scallops.
It was really simple to make. Fold the kraft in half and sew about a 1/2 inch down so that the bookmark will fit over the page in your book. I punched two holes close to the top with my cropadile and thread two pieces of ribbon through the holes and tied a bow. The image is from MFT and is called Book In Hand.
I coloured her with copics and cut her out. The pink sweater really isn't that bright in real life...hmmmm.

Talk Nerdy To Me's back to work after a two week vacation :(
I sort of like staying at home lol but now that I have my new Camero I suppose I won't be quitting anytime to pay for it ;)
I had a few people ask me about the car so I thought I'd share a picture....

I did manage to get quite a bit of stamping in after getting home which was nice!
Too bad I didn't spend anytime cleaning up my craft space. It's a disaster.
There is always next weekend, right?

This card was another one I created using the MFT Guest Designer Sketch.
Pulled out the cute ALM Talk Nerdy to Me....hehe

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hi there!

I'm here this morning to share a card with you for Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch :)
I've actually made two cards and I'll show the other one later.
Here is the sketch:

Sending Happy Thoughts

Hey all!

Today looks to be a relaxing day around the Easton house.
Maybe a little drive out in the country then some time spent on the deck in the sunshine.
A friend is coming over for dinner(homemade cabbage rolls) and we'll catch up.
Race tonight on tv.
I'll sneak some stamping in as well ;)

This CAS card was created for the Free For All Challenge on SCS yesterday.
To use colour.
I went simple.

Thanks for stopping by today!
Enjoy your weekend!

Holiday Hugs


Normally I'm really excited about Friday arriving but not this week :(
That means I only have three days left of my vacation and it's back to work on Monday.
Total bummer.

I've been lucky enough to get a little stamping in these past couple of days though.
MFT had a sketch posted for their Guest Designer spot and I thought I'd play along with it.

Pulled out the adorable snowman image and some new My Mind's Eye Papers.
ETA: Paper is White and Aqua Mist with a MME DP

Amazing Life

Happy Wednesday!

Wow what a productive day I've had. 
I managed to get all the laundry from vacation put away, mowed the front and back lawn, picked up Snickers from the kennel, stopped at a couple grocery stores for fresh fruit/veggies, went for lunch with my husband and stamped!

Now I can relax for the last 4 days of my vacation :)
Monday will come

Today the MFT gang had posted the newest sketch and this is what I created with it.

Thanks for stopping by!

Just Saying Hi


I feel like I've been away for SO long!
I know that I've had posts scheduled while we were on vacation but to not be around has been
Hopefully I'll have a lot of stamping time this week!

I picked up NINE new My Mind's Eye paper packs last weekend in California and I was itching to cut into them tonight!
This card was created using the MFT sketch from last week :)

We didn't take a lot of pictures on vacation this time...but here are a couple....
Chloe and I hanging out on our patio in Vegas. 
Brian and Chloe being goofy at Joe's Crab Shack.
One of Brian and I outside our condo in Vegas.
Then just me ;)

Cherish Life's Simple Pleasures PP109


This week we have a fun challenge on the Paper Players.

Scissors and I used to NOT get along so this was something I rarely did. Now I LOVE to paper piece! As much as I like to colour with my copics, it's nice to not colour sometimes too ;)

I chose to use this pretty image from MFT.
Hope this classifies as CAS?
Stop by my teammates to see what FABULOUS cards they've created today!

Hello, Friend

Hello, Friend

Before leaving for vacation I really wanted to cut into a new to me paper pack from My Mind's Eye.
It's the Six by Six School Daze pack that I picked up at a LSS.

Thought this cute PI Freckles would be fun to go with it!

The sketch is from the MFT #84.

So glad you stopped by!
Today we'll be arriving in Vegas and I'm looking forward to relaxing by the pool while trying to stay cool ;)

I admit to struggling with this one just a little. I knew I wanted to go masculine and make something for my husband. 
I'm going to slip this in his suitcase :)
Stamp set is from SU! and called Happy Hour.

Please stop by the Paper Player's Blog to see what the girls have created!
I won't be online this week but I will try to catch up on any cards uploaded for the challenge next weekend.

Back to School PP #107

Good Morning!

Only half way through our weekend here....LOVE it!

Looking forward to getting a lot of stamp time over the next two days so I've got things to post while on vacation.

Today Nance has a fun challenge for us over at the Paper Players.

Normally I like to use SU! products for the PP challenges but I don't have anything that is school related :(

So I went with a couple of different sets.
One to colour....


One CAS with a sentiment...

Thanks for stopping by today!
I hope you'll pop over to the Paper Player's Blog and leave the girls a little love :)
Hope to see you playing along this week!

Just Saying Hi

Thank heaven it is FRIDAY!

I'm not sure about you but this has felt like the LONGEST week ever!

Maybe it was all the long hours I worked at the beginning of the week or maybe because the long weekend was

Whatever it's okay now!
Happy Friday :)

This was a card created for a couple more of the DTGD challenges on SCS.
Used my all time fave PI.
