Live to Inspire ~ Make it Mondays


Hi friends!  I'm sneaking my take on PTI's Make it Monday under the wire here...busy weekend, but LOVE Laurie's tutorial so much including her layout...so I'm CASEing her.  I changed the background stamp, colours, and sentiment, but the card is all Laurie's.  Here it is in autumn rose :)




I used gold, silver, and rose gold (from the 90's!) embossing powder.  Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great start to your week :)

Congrats ~ 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 darling photo...


Now that I'm back at work, I've had to make sure I create 2 cards at once to beef up my stash.  Also, my sister just came over and cleaned out my birthday cards so you may see more birthday cards over the next little while like this one!  My clean and simply layered card (yes, I didn't think it was a true CAS or a simply layered, so I smashed the 2 styles together) was inspired by the colours and pattern.


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!

Wonderful Friend


 Hello, wonderful friends!  I'm having a lovely morning in the studio playing along with PTI's Creat Along with Us.  I went through all the release days and fell in love with Melissa's card HERE.  I kept the same layout and colour scheme then added some Gran's Garden flowers and leaves.  Thanks for stopping by!  Hope your day is going well l:)

With Heartfelt Sympathy


 Hello friends!  Well, I survived my first week back at work!  I got my new class on Thursday and oh my, they are adorable!  If the first two days with them are any indication, we are going to have a great year!  I had made this card a few weeks ago for my sister (just to keep in her stash, no sad event yet) and wanted to play around with some more colours.  I love the new Orchid Expressions set...so easy to stamp with and only a few dies! Here are two more I made for PTI's Transformation Tuesday...



And all 3 together...


 Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful and relaxing weekend!

Happy Birthday


Hey everyone!  I'm back today with a card that I made, transforming the one I made yesterday for PTI's Transformation Tuesday.  With school going back tomorrow and company this weekend, my mojo was wavering a bit so I stuck with clean and simple and a few favourite images at the moment.  Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great week and wish me luck!

Sending You Hugs


Hello friends!  I have had a busy week and weekend as I gear up for a new school year.  BUT I found a few minutes to play with PTI's Make it Monday challenge: Glitter inlays.  Thanks so much for stopping by...off to enjoy my last day off of the summer!

Sending Birthday Hugs & Wishes


Hello, friends!  I snuck downstairs for a little inky session.  I've got back to school on my brain and have been in my classroom these past 3 days setting things up, making things, buying things, and easing myself into being at the school after a lovely summer break.  I am totally CASEing Dawn's Make it Monday card with a few tiny adaptations with the sentiment and the background grid design.  I used the OLD, or should I say CLASSIC, Background Basics: Retro set to create my backgrounds on both cards.  My white craft ink didn't show up that well so before it dried, I hit it with some white embossing powder.  I tried it in pink as well, like Dawn did.


Thanks for visiting!  Have a great day :)

Little Ones Count


 Greetings, friends!  I'm back today with another card made for one of our math presenters in a few weeks.  Though Verve has closed (insert sad face here), I will forever use this Teachers Count set.  Julee made it after I sent her some ideas for a teacher set :).  I'm entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Back to School.  Thanks for visiting...have a great weekend!

2 Teach is 2 Love


 Hello, friends!  Well, I am pleased to tell you that I am thoroughly enjoying the CLEAN studio and have made it down to stamp most days this past week.  It's great to know where everything is and have a place for everything.  It has cleared up my mind for sure.  We are having a couple of days of summer Professional Development in a couple of weeks and I was asked to make some thank you cards for our math presenters.  Teacher cards are my most favourite ones to make :)  I knew I had to put a little "math" into this one...so fun!  I'm playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Back to School.  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday ~ Make it Monday


Hello friends!  I'm back from a little getaway on the long weekend (BC Day) to visit family and friends.  It felt good to come back to a CLEAN studio and some new goodies I'll have to unpack.  I made this card for PTI's Make it Monday.  I used a tiny floral from a retired Verve set (Autumn Blessings) to create the patterned background and a super old PTI Birthday Basics.  It's a classic, really! I'm so glad it hasn't been retired yet. Thanks for visiting :)

stamps: Birthday Basics (PTI), Autumn Blessings (retired Verve)
dies: Life is Beautiful, A2 Noted Vertical Scallop (PTI)
paper: aquamist, select white , bitty dot basics patterned paper (PTI), barely banana, blue bliss (SU)
