Thank You

Just a quick post as the week has been crazy! My girlfriend Linda had major surgery last month and thank God she pulled through with no problems. Still sore but on the path to recovery. She is the type that always thinks of others first.
When she went into the hospital the amount of love and support that was shown to her was unbelievable. Yet once again she was more concerned about making sure she thanked everyone for all they did for her. She asked if I would make her some thank you cards. Well now how can I say no to that! Her husband and her have become more than just friends to us so it was a no brainer. I chose these stamps from Stampin Up in making the cards and one from Stamping Bella. It was nice using my Stampin Up stamps as it has been a really long time since I had.

Well the people she gave them to her loved them! I was so happy. Now keep in mind the quality of the pictures does them no justice. My camera has been acting up. :( I made a whole bunch of them in these samples and off the went postal.

Ok enough yapping its garbage day. Which means I get the fun job of putting it all out as Nick was not feeling good last night so I sent him off to bed early. :(

I hope everyone has a Happy Thursday and I will make sure I post again soon.

Finally Some Time To Post!

Wow I can not believe that there is only one week till school starts! As sad as I am to see the summer go I will be glad to try and get everyone back on some sort of schedule. Nick came up with the idea that we should get the girls up early every day this week to prepare them for next week. Hmmmmm I see a problem! I am the one trying to get them We have been busy beaching it and getting out to do the fun summer stuff when the weather permits. Which translates to me not getting my own time :( . Another good reason to get them off to school!!! I have been able to make a few cards in the last couple of weeks. It just does not seam to be the same when I have my four and at least four other friends in the I keep telling myself "one" more week!
I will post one of the cards I made today and if I get my laptop back from one of the girls playing on it I will try and post the
This card was made with addy 'tude is a cupcake diva. I was able to sneak away from Nick and the girls for a few minutes a couple of weeks ago and I knew as soon as I saw her on Emily's blog that I had to have her! I tried adding the grass and the sun for something different. I am still trying to figure out the easiest way to add more color around my images and I am having a hard time. If there is anyone out there that can suggest something pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeee tell me. :)

Ok enough yapping the girls are ready to go to the park. Hope everyone is having a happy Monday and stay tuned hopefully I will get to post twice in one day. :)

Happy Birthday Haley!

A week or so ago my friend Teri celebrated her daughter Haley's Sweet 16. She is a striking young lady. I debated on what image to use on her birthday card as she likes "ALL" the stamps I As she loves the Ketto line. I chose to use charlotte ketto. She is one of my favourites. Mind you its hard to pick just one in this line of stamps.

I am having a hard time after making all those birthday invites to get back into the groove of things. I had a tone of ideas for projects and poof they are all gone. Mind you the crappy weather we have been having this summer is not helping. :( Can someone pleaseeeeee speak to the sun god and ask him to come out. :(

Ok enough I just got a whole bunch of new stamps in and I think I will try and be creative. Hope everyone in blogland is having a good week so far and hopefully you will all see another post in the next day or so.

Wow What A Busy Few Weeks!

I am finally taking a breather. I It has been super busy around here these last few weeks. Today was the first day I have been able to breath. I have had a lot going on with the girls being off school.

My biggest project this past week was making 60 birthday invitations for my neighbours granddaughter who is celebrating her sweet 16th next month. I was honoured when they asked me if I would make them. I chose to use patricia birthdaycake. She is one of my favourite chichiboulie faries. I tried keeping it as simple as possible as I needed to make a few of them. I stamped the image on the inside of the invitations in purple so it shows through the lettering. I also stamped the image on the front of the envelopes for a little extra touch. I am pleased with the way they turned out. Janessa was soooooo happy and excited when I delivered them to her on Saturday. She is such a sweet young lady.

Second on my agenda was making a birthday card for my girlfriend Pam. She loves elephants! I had a different vision when I was thinking of how to make her card but I must confess I was so tired that this card I posted is what I came up with. She loved it!

I have a few more projects on the go and I will share them with you in the next few days. Thursday is our anniversary so first thing is first. I have to make a card for Ok its been another late night and I need to be up bright and early. Maria and Niki are participating in a Junior Firefighters Camp this week and let me tell you 7am comes early. Thank you all for coming to take a look. Any comments are greatly appreciated. I hope everyone is having a good week!

Oh what a perfect day for a pool party it was on Saturday! Well ok, it was until we all got home Saturday night and five out of the six of us were sunburned. (I was not one of
I chose to make a tin for Olivia. She knew I made crafts so I thought this would be a perfect gift as she turned nine and loves to keep things. I used tatiana ketto and made a matching card. I am still thinking I should have added something to the tin. But hmmmm she has it now. She LOVED it which made me happy! Ok off to my next project. I will let you all in on it as soon as I iron out some

Thank you all for stopping by to take a look! Hope everyone has a good Monday!

Bellarific Friday!

Oh what a busy time of the year this is. School is a week from being done! "YEAH" No I am not Well ok maybe just a little bit. :) But let me tell you, at least after next week it wont be so hard trying to get everyone up and out the door for school.
I was sad that I could not participate in last weeks Bellarific challenge. :( But made a point to get a card done this week.
I wanted to keep it nice and simple so I chose solid flowery weeds and the sentiment "especially for you" (sorry I cant seam to find it on the website :( ) As soon as I saw this challenge I knew those were the two stamps I wanted to use.

Ok short and sweet as its late and I still have to get up in the morning to get the girls off to school. So I will thank you all for coming to take a look and I hope you all have a happy Friday!
