For Me!

It has been a busy week here. Between Nick's uncles funeral :( . Doctors appointments. Taking the girls to the Ontario Science Centre. (They had an absolute blast!!!!) I am finally glad to be back up here making things. I made a boo boo though :( . I made an altered clipboard and altered lunch tin for my girlfriend Lori's daughter and forgot to take pictures of them before giving them to her. *sighhhhhh* I will have to run down there tonight and take pictures to show you all.
I had bought two lunch tins from Michaels a while back and had never used them yet. I bit the bullet and I am glad I did. I like the way they turned out! I am always making things for others so this time I made myself the second tin. Now the only problem will be as soon as the girls see it after school well ..... I am sure you can all guess what I will be doing in the next few days!!! LOL. I used Stamping Bella's pierrette pointy toes. There is something about this stamp that I love!!!!

This also gave me the opportunity to see if I like the way they turn out as I was thinking of making some as Christmas gifts.

Thank you all for coming and taking a look and leaving your inspiring comments. I hope you are all having a good week!

Thank You Lori!

There are very few cards I make that I like. Yesterdays was one that I really liked! So ... I decided to try it again. This time using Stamping Bella's curly leafy flourish.
My neighbour Lori has been a godsend this past two weeks I have been under the weather. Taking the kids so I can rest. Cooking. All the little things that need to get done on a day to day bases. (Hmmmmm she never folded the clean I have been trying to think of how to say thank you. Finally having the energy to come up here I decided to make her a card. She loves the cards I make but I had never made her one for some reason. I just took it over and left it on her door so she finds it when she gets home from work today. I hope she likes it.
I made a second card the same but with a different sentiment that I want to mail out to a friend. Now as she checks my blog on a regular bases I cant tell you who she is but I will as soon as I know she has received it.
The third card I made is from alota Rubber Stamps but oh man I can not remember the name of it. :( It was a whole sheet of stamps that I cut up into individual stamps. Love them all!!!! I will try and remember it and let you know when I do.

Ok enough yapping I am off to work on another project. Thank you all for your comments yesterday over the loss in our family it means a lot to me. Happy Tuesday!

With Sympathy

This has been a very long month for our family. Between me being sick and some other health issues. The girls are now getting sick one at a time :( . The hardest part of this month (so far) is the sad news that this past Saturday we lost Nick's uncle to cancer. I am glad he is not in pain anymore but it is still hard. I find his death personally hard because he was close to my dad. The only comfort is that now dad will have his backgammon partner back. I chose to use Stamping Bellas solid flowery weeds for the sympathy card I made. Nicks uncle was a simple man like my father so I tried to keep it as simple as possible. May Uncle George rest in piece and may his family find the strength to get through this difficult time. We are all there for them.

Being away from my craft room has been hard the second card is one I had colored in at the beginning of the month and finally finished last night.

Thank you all for coming and viewing the cards I have made and I hope you all have a good Monday!

Late Nite!

Ok I should be in bed. This cold has now turned into a nasty cough and I am lucky if I get a full hours sleep at one time. :( I debated saving this post till Tuesday but as you all can see I am I am going away for the weekend! Not something I get to do that often but when the opportunity came up how can I say no!!!
I wanted to share two cards I made with my new stamps from Alota Rubber Stamps! The problem I had was I ordered a few and had a hard time picking what I wanted to try These two won!

Ok I best get my butt to bed its going to be a long day tomorrow. Hope you all have a good weekend and I look forward to seeing what you all have been working o while I was away. Thank you for stopping by and taking a look!

Happy Birthday Penny!

Considering I got little to no sleep last night thanks to this lovely cough I have :( I was surprised that I remembered to take a picture of Penny before she left for school! Lol!
Today my baby girl turns the BIG "7". She for once in her life woke up on time and got herself all ready for school on her own! Lunch bag and everything!!!! Ok I could not resist I Her response was "mummy I am 7 now I can do it all on my own". I wanted to melt inside but if you know Penny you know this wont I think she thought she was getting her presents before Nick got home from

She loved the stamp named after her but she asked if I could use Stamping Bella's pierreet pointy toes it is her favourite stamp. Of course I also fell in love with her from the minute I saw her and it is a stamp that I had not used in a while so it was fun making her all up again. Now as long as I can stop coughing I will finish up the matching little notebook that I was working on. :(

At least the card is done ....phewwwwwwwwww. I will try and remember to post it when I am done.

Thank you all for coming and taking a look and I hope those of you who are battling the same thing I have are feeling a bit better.
