Christmas cards for work

This is the card I made for work this year. The paper, ribbon and stamp came from Michael's and embossed with my snowflake folder.

This is where the inspiration came from. Jak Heath is amazing.

You can find this card and other fabulous ones here.

Happy Birthday Max!

I made this card for my nephew Max. I just wish we could see the grass here. It has snowed everyday since Sunday and apparently it's going to continue. Time to buy a plane ticket!

Welcome Baby Ryan

Our friends Mike and Melissa had a baby girl on Tuesday. She is adorable. This is the card I made for her. The dress is from Stamping Bella and the sentiment is Stamping Up. On the inside I used a CTMH stamp set.

Bellarific Friday

It is a beautiful Sunday here. The sun is shining. This is my entry for this weeks challenge. I used Beerafella. We had to follow a sketch. I used my Just Rite for the sentiment.

Happy Birthday Dad!

Hi everyone! I think we can say summer is actually over now. I put away the capris and pulled out the long pants and sweaters. I made this card for my father in law. When I saw this image at Karen's doodles I knew I had to have him. He looks exactly like my father in law who also rides a motorcycle. I wrote on the flag with a marker as it comes blank. I coloured with my Prismas, but I used a black glaze pen on the bike and a clear one on his glasses and handlebars.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope to be posting a little more frequently now that it's to cold for me to go outside. Brrrr!

Happy 4th of July

Another gorgeous day here in Ontario. This is Izzie from Stamping Bella. I paper pieced her hat, outfit and balloons. Doesn't she look like a sweet little American girl? I'm giving this card to Monica. Her husband is from Long Island.

Below are the cookies I made for our Canada Day BBQ. I got the recipe off of Christine's blog. I baked them and then used a stamp I hadn't used before. I dipped it in red food colouring. I think they turned out pretty good, as I don't usually spend much time in the kitchen. When I do there tends to be more swearing going on than anything else. I hope you all have a wonderful day whatever you may be doing.

Happy Canada Day!

Well it turned out to be a lovely day here. When I woke up this morning it was a little chilly. I made this card for the Bellarific challenge this week. We had to make a square card. I absolutely love how this turned out. My stamp is called Angelina (by Mo Manning) I coloured her up with our good old red and white and used tons of glitter on the balloons. Enjoy the festivities. Can't wait for the fireworks tonight.

Happy Birthday

This is the card I made for Monica's birthday. This is Stella. She is from Stamping Bella. I have to tell you, I really didn't like Stella when I first saw her. Now I have alot of Stella stamps. She's definately grown on me. I coloured with Prismas, blended with OMS, and put some clear glaze pen on the glass. Have a great day. Thanks for dropping by.

Bellarific Friday

This weeks challenge is "Summer's Coming". It's funny, I was wearing the exact same outfit today. Except Bella looks way better. Did any of you get to Stamping Bella today? Emily has a FABULOUS sale on! 10 % off on everything and another 5% if you're paying cash. It will last till Sunday. Lets just say I picked up a few goodies. Happy stamping to me! She also had a new release this past Monday. Lots of things to choose from. My MO collection is growing wonderfully. It is not supposed to be a very nice weekend weather wise, so maybe I can get some colouring done.

Happily Ever After...

This is a card I made for my cousins wedding. On the outside I used Stamping Bella stamps and on the inside I used my Just Rite stamps to personalize it.

The weather is quite nice here today. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

For Me?

About a month ago, my friend Monica went on a scrapbooking retreat. She came home with this wonderful present for me. My very own HILDA from Motivet! I was super excited! I made this card for Monica to say "Thanks".

Happy 1st Birthday Connor

Good Sunday morning everyone. It's a beautiful sunny day here. Thank goodness. We are going to an outside birthday party today. Our friend's son is tuurning 1. My friend Karen let me borrow this stamp last year and I've finally done something with it. When the invitation came with Sesame Street on it, how could I use another image than this one? I even did the inside of this card. Hope you all have a great day. Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Mother's Day

My goodness! How many of you saw snow yesterday? It was still here when I woke up this morning. Yuk! Funny thing is my husband is now outside cutting the grass. Only in Canada eh! I made this card for my Mom. It is a Great Impressions stamp. I just love it. I coloured with Prismas, used my glaze pen on the jars, and a little glitter. I ran the blue cardstock through the cuttlebug and layered two pieces of ribbon. Mom loved it too.

May Flowers

This is the card I did for the Bella challenge this week. It had to have some form of flower on it. I think this stamp is called Happy Flowers. I may give this card to my mother in law. I haven't decided yet. I do have another one in mind. The weather has turned cold here and it's supposed to be in the minus by Sunday. Brrr! Stay warm friends.

Happy Birthday Mom!

Hi everyone! I'm still around. Lots of cards to upload. Here is the card I made for this weeks Bellarific challenge. I used a little glitter on the flowers and candles and a glaze pen on the icing.

Bellarific Challenge

Good morning! It is a nice sunny day. To bad it's not a little bit warmer. Think positive, it's coming. This is the card I made for the Bella challenge this week. We had to follow a sketch. I like sketches. It makes it so much easier when you don't have a clue what you're going to do. I used Phoebe Ketto. Coloured with Prismas and used a little glaze and glitter.

Love Is In The Air

Hi everyone. Thanks for stopping by. I made this card for the High Hopes Challenge. I used Mooshie Steals a Kiss. The kissing booth is also a HH stamp. I may save this card for my husband or give it to my inlaws for their anniversary next week. Haven't quite decided yet.

Happy Monday

This is a Tilda I picked up at Pointer's. They had a sale before Christmas, so I picked up a few goodies. I coloured her about 2 weeks ago. Do you think I could find paper to match the colours? I'm still not really excited about the way it turned out, but here she is anyways.
Hope you all have a wonderful day. It's finally stopped raining. (at least we don't have to shovel)
I thought I may have to canoe to work today.

Sending You Love

Hi there! This card is for the Stamping Bella challenge today. She is called Loveybella. Did you hear? Emily is having a new release today. YEY!! I'll be swinging by after work. I was up till midnight trying to get this done on time. Thank goodness it's Friday! Have a great weekend.

I know Christmas is over, but I thought I would show you the card I made for Monica. Jinglebellabella was released in December. I thought she was so sweet. When I saw her I knew she would be a great candidate for fun flock. I put some glitter on the tree and some stickles on her holly berries. The paper is CTMH.

Mudzie's Predicament.

WOW! Do not try this! I can speak from experience that this is not fun at all. When I was a kid I stuck my tongue to a gate in the middle of winter. I know, really stupid kid. I think someone dared me to do it. Anyway it didn't turn out all that well. This is a stamp from High Hopes. I coloured with Prismas and OMS. I used a clear galze pen on Mudzie's tongue. I stamped the snowflakes on with a little stamp I picked up at the dollar store.

Winter Wonderland

I made this card from a stamp set I received for Christmas last year. Hopefully the snowmen will be melting soon, although it has snowed here all morning. AGGHH! It only stopped about a half hour ago. Oh well we probably only have 3 months left of this lovely weather.

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. I have been MIA for some time now. I made some cards for work. 80 to be exact. I used some stamps I picked up at Michael's. The sentiment is a CTMH stamp.
