Happy Birthday ~ The Card Concept


Hello friends!   Our new challenge over at The Card Concept challenge blog starts today and will be our last one until September!  I have one more week until summer vacation starts...I'm a LITTLE excited!  Our challenge is based on this "succulent" photo...pun intended :)


I went all clean and simply layered and used my new Tropical Prints stamps...I've waited for them forever!  I took inspiration from the colours and then created this birthday card for my sister who is visiting right now :)  We sure hope you'll join us before the summer break!  Head over to The Card Concept blog to see all the different interpretations from the Design Team then join in the fun!  Have a great day!

You've Been Really Lovely ~ The Card Concept


Hello everyone! Yikes!  I've been AWOL!  We were away last weekend and now it's report card writing week.  I feel out of my groove so it was great to get a little inky for our new challenge over at The Card Concept challenge blog.   Our challenge is based on this bright and cheery photo...


My clean and layered (with a splash of vintage) card was inspired by the primary colours.   One of my students' grandma came in on Friday and did weaving with the class...they loved it!  It was so calming and they were so proud to learn a new skill.  I think this card will do nicely to thank her for coming in and sharing her talent.

Friends to the End ~ The Card Concept


Hello everyone! It's time for a new challenge over at The Card Concept challenge blog.   Our challenge is based on this cool photo...


My vintage/shabby chic card was inspired by the colours, particularly pink, and the vintage vibe.  My button card was repurposed from another card years ago.  It's been waiting for the perfect transformation.

Happy Birthday


Greetings friends!  I'm back today with my take on Laurie's Favourites Challenge.  This time it's to use a favourite colour combination.  I have so many so I decided on the one that was sitting on my desk for a few days. It started with aqua and orange and then I added some yellow for a pop!  Thanks for stopping by!

You are Pretty Amazing



Hi everyone!  I'm back today with a quick little tag for Laurie's Favourites challenge: make a tag!  Tags are so much fun because they are a small canvas and look great on gifts or cards.  This sweet office inspired tag will definitely be going to our school secretary at some point because she is pretty amazing!  The tag die is from PTI's Scalloped Tags die collection and the typewriter image along with that fabulous alphabet ribbon (really just strips of fabric) is OLD and from Mish Wooderson's store (sorry, no longer available).  I bought extra lengths of it when it was available.



 Thanks for stopping by...looks like this may be the last PTI challenge as they are changing to a new name Ink to Paper...it's been a company close to my heart for ten years.  Hoping they will continue their fun challenges.  Change is good...it means we are still alive :)  Have a great week.

Congrats 2019





 Hello friends!  I've been busy making some custom grad cards for my friend at work.  This layout has become one of my favourites for graduation cards...I'm not sure where I first saw this layout...perhaps from a PTI designer...it's been my goto  ever since 2014 (see the first card HERE).  I also use it for generic non custom grad cards as seen here below.



If you look at my Graduation label you'll see various versions of this layout as well.  I'm entering this favourite layout in Laurie's Favourites Challenge for Win it Wednesday.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week!
