Delicious Popscicles:


Happy Sunday all!  I was finally able to enjoy some time in the craft room this weekend - yeah me!  Our sweet puppy, Miss Saffron had surgery on Friday so we spent every minute together this weekend.  She is doing super fantastic - such a champ!  She was spayed and had a bit of dental surgery.





Now, if you know me, I either like my cards with LOTS of patterned paper or LOTS of die cuts.  Or both.... 



Card Ingredients:



I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

The Paper Players






















TGIF Challenges















MFT Color Challenge












Have a great Sunday evening - cheers all!!

    Wedding Congrats:



    Hi all!  I am on my way to a wedding (hence the posted wedding card) and it takes me FOREVER to get ready...  I have three hours LOL.

    Speaking of being speedy - I would love to say that this card was a breeze to make and I whipped it up this morning.  But alas, I started it Thursday night.  I was going to throw it away but decided to keep working at it :)



    I would like to enter my card into the following challenge:

    Well I would love to stay and chat but I have to go make myself wedding presentable.  Cheers all and have a good weekend!

    I tried to create a bright happy fun card and felt the card was missing a key component.  So I created a star rainbow for the extra touch of pow - colour!

    Merry Monday 211:


    Happy Monday all!  A bit of a rainy weekend out there but I manage to do lots of inside work - yah!

    This week at Merry Monday, Colleen would like us to create a Christmas card using BLUE, GOLD, WHITE/SILVER:




    **PLEASE NOTE:  Merry Monday will be taking a Summer break! We will be back September 5th with a brand new challenge picked by me!!**


    I had a lot of fun created this card, I wanted to use all four colours but was sure where to start with using both gold and silver, but still keep it a bit on the trendy side.

    I started my layers with My Favorite Things Blueprints (20)(13) and SugarPea Designs Stitched Flags.  I also added Stitched/Pierced Circles from My Favorite Things Blueprints 13 and Blueprints 21.  I stamped a Reverse Confetti Jolly Holiday sentiment on a My Favorite Things Blueprints 13 Washi Tape Banner.



    I would also like to enter my card into the following challenge:

    The Paper Players



















    Happy Little Stampers
