Cookies and Cake

Hello again! It is my favorite day of the week and winter has come back to Canada! We are supposed to get up to 25 cm of snow over the weekend which is much needed for so many reasons. Though Weather Canada says it will warm up again which means all the snow will melt again - such a shame.

I just wanted to post quickly here as I have a date a few hours to see Avatar.

Today's Challenges:

1. Pile It On - wants "at least 3 ribbons".

2. Charisma Cardz Challenge - "Fruity Colors"

3. EtsyInspired Challenge - use inspiration from Sweetie Pie Tutus. I love their little moto: "If our tutus were any sweeter, they would be made of sugar!" The brilliant colors and flowers is what I grabbed my inspiration from.

4. Unscripted Sketches has a new sketch. I must tell the ladies at US that I just ADORE their weekly challenges. There hasn't been one sketch where I thought to myself: yeah, can't do that one :)



I made this card for a birthday girl who is turning five. I wanted a very bright card with lots of elements that she should love :)




Card Ingredients: paper is unknown; Bazzill and Recollections cardstock; Inkadinkado and Recollections stamps; Craftsmart Black and Fuchsia inks; Copic markers; Dashes, Dots & Checks ribbons; Primas; Making Memories brads; random gems, button, and twine.

Happy Saturday!! Hmmm, wonder if I should go shovel before I leave - naaaaaaaaa. It will only snow more this weekend :) See you all tomorrow and stay warm!!!!!
