Cheer Up!

Hello :)

Earlier this week I worked a late shift a work which meant I had some crafty time in the morning. When I stamp before going to work I feel energized! Not sure why but it's always fun!

This card used the SCS colour challenge and the Paper Players Sketch.
I inked up this little PI cutie and coloured with some copic markers. A little stitching to the center panel for interest and it's complete!

Birthdays Are The Best

I'm working a late shift today. Sort of strange for a Tuesday but it does give me the ability to get crafty in the morning :)

Today the Colour Challenge 484 on SCS was Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Cherry Cobbler. The dessert option was a 4th colour and I chose Old Olive.

It's a Good Day to Be Happy

The sun is shining AGAIN today!
We've had so much rain as of late and on flood watch that it's nice to see things finally turn around.
Especially now that summer has officially arrived! Yippee!

This week when the MFT posted the sketch below I almost went with a sentiment or floral die BUT decided to play around a bit with my copics ;)
The sweet PI is Wish You Were Here and the sentiment comes from the Sunflower Sweetheart set.

Thanks For Being Awesome....Just Saying

Happy Wednesday!

Today I'm hoping to be at work for a very short time. It's my day off but it's also my reno meeting day :(
Not that I ever hope to go through an entire store renovation again but if I do, remind me to fight for a different meeting
Three out of four Wednesday's I have off but spend them at work. Silly me!
Anyway, when I get home today I'm going to get busy stamping!

I was excited to see yesterday that my card was chosen as one of the favourites for the Freshly Made Sketch last week!!!
I'm loving red and yellow right now. Not sure these paper packs made it back to my filing cabinet....

You Are Capable of Wonderful Things - DS154

Good Morning!

Here comes the rain this week! I think it's a good thing because my lawn is already turning brown and it's only June :( We need the moisture!

Last Thursday I played along with Jen's Deconstructed Sketch below:
It's funny how I never created cards without designer paper and now I struggle to use
Luckily My Mind's Eye makes such pretty paper packs ;)

Be Strong

Happy Monday!
We had a great weekend but it's back to work today.
I can't wait to see what "surprises" I will find after being away for two

Last night after dinner I finished a card I had started earlier in the day.
This time I got messy with some mixed media!
Always fun!

Using Iwona's Saturday Sketchbook #122 I created the card below.
There is something about this colour that I find soooooooo soothing.

Let the Sun Shine - WT482

Happy Saturday!

It's extra happy because I have the day off with Brian :)
We aren't sure what we'll do just yet. I feel like I have a million things I'd like to do but know that's not possible ha!
There are a few clouds in the sky but this is Lethbridge and it's almost always windy so I'm keeping my fingers crossed they'll blow away!

On Thursday before heading into work I managed to make a card for the Ways To Use It Challenge on SCS.
Let the Sun Shine it said.

If Friends Were Flowers, I'd Pick You

Hello :)

Even though work and home has been super busy for me lately I have managed to make several cards in the past few days :) That makes me happy!

Here is another card I created using the Mojo Sketch below.

I have always loved the Dream Big stamp set from Verve. Now I need to order the dies so I don't have to hand cut the flowers anymore.
