Stitched Thanks:


I am on a roll today!  I have been loving sitting in my craftroom today as I moved the portable air conditioning unit in with me.  Such a relief!  And my brain can think now!

MFT Congrats:


Hello, hello!  Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canadians!!  It's the perfect day spending what I love to do - creating!

I started with My Favorite Things Die-namics Blueprints 13 (all those fun stitches).  Those super fun stamps are from MFT's Watercolor Flowers which I stamped in Stampin' Up! So Saffron, Pool Party, and Calypso Coral.  I added American Crafts twine, MME Teal Collection enamal dots, and Studio Calico clothespin.   The MFT Essential Sentiment is also stamped in Stampin' Up! Calypso Coral.




I created this card for the following challenges:






That is it for today and thanks for stopping by!  Happy 148th Birthday to my favourite nation in the world, Canada!!!

Merry Monday 165:

Good morning all!  I hope you enjoyed your weekend.  It was a hot one here!  We spent some more time outside adding rock to the sides of our house.  We are almost done landscaping for this year - I can see the end!!!  Just a few more things to do!

This week at Merry Monday, Sue has chosen the theme of using CANDLES and FLOWERS on your Christmas card:




I decided to go shabby chic/vintage on this one.  I I found this vintage image on Pinterest (unfortunately the pin goes nowhere) which I framed with Spellbinders Classic Oval and distressed with Craftsmart Gold and Chocolate inks.  I then pulled out some complementary papers from Authentique Joyous collection.   Lastly I added some Wild Orchard Crafts flowers and crown pins and a SSS Peace On Earth sentiment stamped in Versafine Onyx Black
