From Cupid

Greetings, friends!  I've been having so much fun again with my Reverse Confetti stamps and dies this past weekend.  Jen's card HERE inspired this little number.  A colleague at work needed to borrow my school key last week as she forgot hers in her classroom.  She said she needed one of those big puffy keychains so she wouldn't forget her key at the end of the day.  Well, while I was out this weekend, I saw this heart puff keychain and knew she would love it!  I put it on her desk early this morning :)

I'm entering this sweet little card in the Reverse Confetti's Stock Your Stash challenge.  Thanks for stopping by!

what's in it?
stamps: Heart Filled Sentiments (Reverse Confetti), Tagged Sentiments (retired PTI)
dies: xoxo die, Tall Tag Trio die (Reverse Confetti), From the Heart die, Limitless Layers 1 3/4 (PTI)

Let it Snow ~ Make it Monday

Hello!  I've been happily creating in the studio this morning.  I didn't think I would participate in this week's Make it Monday challenge because I didn't have a good tree stamp...WAIT!  I do!  Does anyone else have the classic Lovely as a Tree by Stampin' Up?  Oh, my...I still have it!  One of those sets you never get rid of.  It was perfect for my project.  I added a sweet sentiment from Snowfall Style :)  Thanks for visiting!

Happy Heart Day

Hello, friends!  It's my last day of holidays {insert sobbing face here} so I thought I would treat myself with a challenge I keep forgetting to play along with!  I love my Reverse Confetti stamps and die cuts so I pulled out a whack of them to play along with their January Stock Your Stash Challenge: Love is in the Air.  I'll be making a bunch of Valentine cards to take into work next month so this challenge is perfect...I'm sure I'll be entering it all month long!  Here's my second card as I need to make two at a time to really stock my stash!  I was inspired by Amy Rohl's card (so adorable!). Thanks for stopping by!  Wish me luck for tomorrow!

Let's Celebrate

 Hello!  Happy Friday!  I'm back today with my take on PTI's Transformation Tuesday.  I had made a Happy New Year card this week and then decided to make a birthday card with the same frame and base colour, but different sentiment, flowers, and orientation.  You can see both cards below.  Thanks for visiting!  Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy New Year and New Year's Mantra!

Happy New Year, friends!  I love when our Christmas Break starts close to Christmas so we have a nice week after to clean up the decorations and PLAY in the studio.  I love being able to play with PTI's Make it Monday early rather than scrambling to create something last minute on a Sunday.  It's the A La Carte time so we get to pick a challenge we missed.  Can you believe, that was a challenge?  I've played along with most of them but did find one that I missed...#312, Framing Sentiments and Images with Laurie.  Though my poinsettias are done now, I was happy to make one more for my card that will make it's way to my cousin in the States.

I'm also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Something New.

Speaking of PLAY...this is my "one word/New Year's Mantra" for the year.  Being a Grade One teacher means that this word is always around me and a big part of what I try to bring into my class.  However, it really became imprinted on my heart this summer when I bought a bracelet at a local market.  The bracelet had a "2018" charm on it so I asked if I could change it out.  The artist opened her charm container and the first one I saw was "PLAY."  I picked it right away.  So now it's my mantra for the year (and forever!).  I'll leave you with a photo of the bracelet and some playful see more, visit my Pinterest New Year's Mantra board.  You'll also see quotes from past mantras.  Thanks for stopping by!
