Decide What To Be and Go Be It

Hello :)
Thanks for stopping by today!

I haven't stamped in several days and it looks like it might be several more before I do :(
Work has been insane lately! 
Three more weeks and we will be on vacation...I CANNOT WAIT!

Here was Jen's Deconstructed Sketch from last week.
I decided to go spring like!

You're A Life Saver - MFT Sketch #169

Hello :)

Since I still had the Go Overboard stamp and dies on my desk I decided to use them again for the MFT sketch #169 this week.
I created the card below for one of my assistant store managers. She's always there covering for me and seems that when something big happens it's on her

You Keep Me Anchored - FMS129

Today I ended up spending most of the day at work. It would be okay if it wasn't my day
We are in the middle of a huge renovation and I want to be there as often as I can to keep in the loop! Things change SO fast in only a few short hours....

Freshly Made Sketches posted their new sketch today!
I had a piece of yellow cardstock on my table and really wanted to use it. This might be a little of an unusual colour combo for a nautical card but who says I have to use the usual? 
Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Friend

Hello :)

We are trying to plan a family vacation for after Easter but we can't seem to agree where we will
One minute it's Florida and the next it's California.
I think we've ruled Vegas out as we can always stop there on our way through if we go to California.
I know we'll figure something out....we always do!

While the laundry was in the dryer I took advantage of a little free time to create this card below.
Two challenges in one!

I am loving these colours! It's been awhile since I last coloured with my copics and I felt a bit rusty!

Have Big Dreams - DD95

Things have been so busy lately that I haven't had much crafty time :(
I do have a couple of days off this week but have to go to work for a couple of hours each day.
Some way....some how....I'll find some crafty time!

Tonight while waiting for Brian to come home I snuck into my craft room to create a card for the Dynamic Duos Challenge below.
I used a few new to me supplies from MFT.
Love these colours together! Fun!

Make Today Wonderful

Yesterday I had the morning off and was able to do a little stamping. Always a fun way to start the day off!
I'm missing Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketches and was thrilled to be able to play along with the girls while playing along with the Ways To Use It Challenge - Buttons on SCS as well.

With it being SPRING though we got snow yesterday....I wanted to use some happy and upbeat colours!
I stamped the wood grain background stamp from MFT's Western Backgrounds in Versamark on the red cardstock. The sentiment panel was first stamped with Pretty Poppies script in Daffodil Delight and over stamped with a sentiment from Simply Fabulous in black ink.

Thinking Of You - FMS128

Hi :)

Tonight I had hoped to be stamping with some new MFT goodies that I ordered yesterday BUT that darn FedEx guy went to the WRONG address today so I received an email saying I was unavailable and they'd deliver tomorrow. UGH! Tomorrow is NO I want my stamps. NOW!

So instead of sitting around crabby I decided to stamp anyway :)
Using the Freshly Made Sketch above I created a couple of cards.
Here is one of them using the MFT Peaceful Wildflowers stamps and dies.
Thanks for stopping by!

Hello :)

A quick CAS card I created for the Featured Stamper Challenge #370 on SCS yesterday.
Stamped the poppies in Soft Sky and Lucky Limeade. The sentiment came from the Simply Fabulous Sayings from MFT.

Happy Birthday


Last night it was quiet in the house.
Chloe was hanging with her friend and Brian is working in Calgary so it was just me to find something to do to pass the time.
What better way to do that than stamp?! Right?

The Freshly Made Sketch was a perfect starting point.
Time to pull out on of my favourite stamp and dies.
