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 have...lol. 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 yapping...lol. 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 think....lol. 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 Nick....lol. 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!
