Thanks for Being You


Thanks for stopping by today!

I finally have a weekend off and I'm THRILLED! Here's hoping I can find a little time to sneak into my craft room at some point and get inky ;)

On Thursday morning I played along with the SCS Ways To Use It Challenge - Ovals and I combined it with the Freshly Made Sketch from this week.

I used a super fun MFT image and some bright colours! Makes me happy!

Just Because


Last week I was super busy doing I honestly don't know what but I do know I didn't have time to get in my stamp room.

Hoping to make up for that today!

Here I used some fun floral Verve Stamps!
Great Friend and Bloom & Grow.

Get Well Soon

The vet just called and said she's doing well and I can pick her up tomorrow :)

You Keep Me Anchored

Look at me go!

Two days in a row posting! Wow!
Not sure it'll happen as often but I've felt a lot more inspired this past week.
Maybe it's the hustle and bustle of the holidays are over and I can relax a bit.
Being in retail drains you.

I was happy to play along with the SCS CAS challenge yesterday and combine it with Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch.

Dashing Through The Snow

Hello :)

Wow LONG time no blogging eh?!
This time of year is insanely busy. I haven't picked up a crafting tool in nearly a month! ACK!
That's the business I'm in though. Retail is crazy until after the holidays.

Just today I addressed my Christmas cards. 
Now to pick up a little something for my team at work ;)

Here is a card I created using one of Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketches.
Stamps and dies are from PTI Papertrey Ink
