Happy Birthday ~ The Card Concept


 Hello everyone! Today starts a new challenge over at The Card Concept challenge blog based on the picture below...  


I was itching to use my new Grand Botanical dies and this challenge seemed like the perfect place to start.  Inspired by the colours, flowers, and polka dots I went to work die cutting these gorgeous botanicals.   I hope you'll 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!

Mother's Day Wishes ~ PTI Blog Hop


Hi friends!  Thanks for stopping by to see my entry for the PTI April Blog Hop.  I have been having fun with my new Grand Botanical dies.  I was mixing and matching so much that I had enough pieces left over to make another card...which has been my goal this year...to make 2 cards at a time.  So far it's been going well! Enjoy the hop!

Happy Mother's Day ~ Make it Monday


Hello friends!  I was lucky enough to have one more inky day in the studio this long Easter weekend.  I made sure to take in this week's PTI Make it Monday challenge and am so glad I did as it was Dawn's turn to challenge us to use a pattern behind a window.  I went with some patterned paper that I could stamp a sentiment on.   Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great week

Happy Mother's Day ~ Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge


Hello everyone!  It's the 15th of the month and that means there's a new challenge is up and ready to go over on the  Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.  This time we’re inspired by this photo…



 Tulips are one of my favourite flowers!  When they are blooming, it means Spring is on the way (hopefully!)...except maybe for this year! LOL  I was inspired by EVERYTHING in this photo...the colours, the neutrals, the aqua bucket, the distressed chair...EVERYTHING!

Want to play along?  Head over to the Curtain Call blog for more inspiration and then join in the fun! Thanks for stopping by!

Done in Love


 Hi friends!  I had some good inky time in the studio today and was able to finish some projects I had started during Spring Break.  I had gold embossed this sentiment on a couple of bristol panels ready to water colour but never got around to it until today.  So happens that I was able to be inspired by Laurie and use it for the  PTI's Create Along with Us challenge.  Laurie's card is so gorgeous, I can't stop looking at it! Thanks for stopping by!

He Will Rejoice Over You ~ The Card Concept


Hello everyone! Today starts a new challenge over at The Card Concept challenge blog based on the picture below...  


I get stumped sometimes figuring out which "style" of card I've created...is it vintage? Layered? Shabby? Mixed Media?  All of the above? I'm not sure!  One thing is sure, I was inspired by those gorgeous colours and butterflies! I know you must be asking where is my doily?!  I was making this card for some dear friends who lost their young son in law and a doily just wasn't in that plan.  Sympathy cards are always tricky but I love to put some kind of quote on them instead of "with sympathy."  I feel these quotes are more uplifting and perhaps might add to the healing after a sad loss.

I hope you'll 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!

29 again? Make it Monday on Sunday!


Hi everyone!  I'm sneaking in at the last hour with a very quick card for this/last week's PTI Make it Monday challenge.  Besides WORK, my time this week has been taken up with watching Team Canada win the Men's World's Curling championship! Woohoo!  Evening games were at 6:00 so any inky time was gone!  So this card is a "just get 'er done" one. Thanks for stopping by!
