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 :)

Thanks for stopping by!

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!
SPRING!

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 house....lol

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

Let's Make Some Waves - FMS130

Hello!

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 :)

Here's a card I created using the Freshly Made Sketch from this week.
I used the super sweet Sailor Girl from MFT along with a die from the Go Overboard dienamics.

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.

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 shift....lol

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 off....lol
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 go....lol
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!
