MM 295

I have been taken a small hiatus from card created and have been really focused on outdoor work. I have been staining and painted my butt off. My goal is to have all outdoor projects finished in the next few weeks with my upcoming hip replacement surgery. I still have about 3/4 of our back deck left. That is the last of my projects before my surgery and the summer.  I am looking so forward to getting it all done. Having a giant glass of wine, and waiting for my surgery :)

This week at Merry Monday, Marcia would like us to use the inspiration photo on our Christmas cards:

I saw the swirly Christmas candy right away and knew that was the theme I was going with :)
I had fun with the colours, and actually this card make my heart happy =)

Stock Your Stash - JUNE:

Hi all, today I am showcasing one of my new favourite stamp sets, My Sunshine.

I added a bit of pattern paper from Paper Bliss and stitched on some vellum. 

I also created this card for the following challenge:

Cheers - enjoy your Monday!



Good morning all - it's the eighth of the month, which means it's Reverse Confetti's JUNE blog hop!  

Today we are celebrating Summer Fun!

When I think of summer, I think of sunshine, bright colours, light-heartedness, with a little bit of cheeriness and FUN!!

I grabbed some fun paper, added some stitching with a cute little polka dot cup and voila! Fin,

Lastly I chose to make a true summer card. This is a bout as close as I like to get to the sun. I am very sensitive and hand out under a nice cool gazebo.

One of new (to me) technique is using post it notes to add ink. It is so much fun!

I am quickly stopping in to share this card I made this morning, I am trying to get some yard work before the end of the day.

It has been rather cold and dreary here the last week so I wanted to bring some sunshine into my craft room.

I have created this card for the following challenge:

Cheers - I am off to move some shrubs :)
