So happy I got what little stamping in on Sunday that I did :)
Makes me happy!

Nothing But Blue Skies Ahead - FMS133

It felt great to get a little creative today!
Over a week since I've gotten inky and I think I was a little
A great starting point is always the Freshly Made Sketch!
While we were on vacation my MFT order finally arrived. Yeah!

I was able to use the Cloud Cover Up Die along with a sentiment from the CS-Blue Skies Ahead.

Miss You - MFTWSC172


Here is one last card I made before hitting the road!
Hoping that when I return from vacation I have the latest MFT release waiting for me. Normally it arrives within a day or two of ordering but this time it was well over a week and a half before I left and nothing :( 
Very disappointing.

Hello Friend - DS147

Good Morning!
Why is it that the week before vacation always feels like one of the longest of the year?! LOL!

Yesterday before heading into work the late shift I was able to stamp a little...yeah!

Jen's newest sketch:
I sponged some Daffodil Delight onto white cardstock using a stencil. Decided on a few different dies to create a little scene and viola!
Nice and quick CAS card :)

Miss You - Sweet Sunday Sketch #215

The card below was created using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch and a sweet PI that I ordered from MFT last month.
I ordered on Tuesday night but the newest release did not arrive yet :( 
Bummer too since I pay a lot for shipping.
I expect faster service....especially since I had the weekend off and it would have been nice to create with new goodies.

Miss You

Today was BEAUTIFUL outside!
Sunny shine and blue skies!

Here's a card I created last week with the Lily Die I received from MFT last month. First chance I've had to play with it.
I used more of that modelling paste along with some re-inkers to create a nice bright background!

You Are Capable of Wonderful Things

Happy Weekend!

Spring SEEMS like it's here in Lethbridge! I can't complain because we've had a fantastic winter really. Snow rarely stayed longer than a few days and this week we are expecting the temps to be in the 70's!

Brian stopped at the craft store in Calgary and picked me up a bunch of new supplies so I could give this Mixed Media a little more of a go. As much as I love trying new things....patience making a card is not one of my best qualities. I typically like to spend less than 30 minutes on one card. With the drying time between applications on the card below I managed to do a LOT of work around the

Jackie shared a tutorial on SCS on Layered Gesso Backgrounds. I mostly followed it ;)

Wow was it nice to have a couple of days off during the week. I didn't get as much stamping done as I had hoped but that's okay :)

Hello, Sunshine

I LOVE days off during the week!
I can get SO much more done around the house which gives me more crafty time ;)

Today I was able to play along with the Splitcoast Stampers sketch!
This was the first time I have inked up this sweet new image from MFT called Sunflower Sweetheart.
