Good morning! I had a great weekend sitting on our deck enjoying a beautiful spring day and of course, crafting.

This week at Merry Monday, I would like to see NO STAMPS on our Christmas cards:




I knew I wanted to do strictly die cuts and went to work putting together this little scene.



I used felt to give the snow a fluffy puffy feel and used some fun paper to liven up my polar bear.



At first I thought it looked a little lonely without a stamped sentiment, but in the end I like how it all came together.






Die cuts: My Favorite Things Snow Capped Mountains, Simon Says Stamp Magical Christmas, My Favorite Things Stitched Snow Drifts
Extras: Recollections felt

Flowers:








It was a beautiful, beautiful day out yesterday. A true spring day. It is raining today which I am hoping will clean off a lot of the winter dust.

Because I have spring fever, I was drawn immediately to the Tall Blooms set.




I coloured the blooms in with my Zig watercolor markers and added a twine bow.


Lastly I snuck in a masked sentiment also from the Tall Blooms set.









 I have created this card for the following challenges:







(flowers, die cut, twine)
And a shout out to my old teamies - HI!




Have a great Sunday - cheers to you!

Good morning! I have been down and out since Thursday as I had another nasal surgery done. I am feeling better day by day and can't wait to get back to crafting again =)

Happy Monday. It was another icky cold weekend. The Weather Network says this has been our coldest spring in over 100 years. I believe it.




Since it is the 16th of the month, it is my turn to show you what I came up with with our Reverse Confetti's Sketch For You To Try.




Because it is so dreary outside I wanted to create a cheerful bright card. I grabbed one of my favourite stamp sets, In A Jam, and went to work.

This card was really quite simple to make and super duper cute =)





I added some stitching and a sweet twine bow to the jam jar for a little interest.






















Have a great day all! Cheers!

Good morning!

This week at Merry Monday, Susan would like us to add our favourite Christmas verse to our Christmas cards:




I dusted off an old, old stamp set from KaiserCraft that I have had for years. It is a rather flimsy set so I couldn't stamp a crisp image but even ancient stamps need love too =)

"Wishing you peace on earth, love in your hearts, joy in all your days"









 Stamps: KaiserCraft Christmas Sentiments (retired)
Die cuts: My Favorite Things Blueprints 2 and 13, My Favorite Things Stitched Basic Edges, My Favorite Things Joy, Reverse Confetti Holly, My Favorite Things Abstract Heart
Extras: Reverse Confetti Midnight Ink

Howdy howdy!
