Merry & Bright ~ Mojo Monday


 Hello friends!  It is a sunny cold morning here in BC, my perfect stamping weather!  I am a morning stamper so I went right to work creating this card for Julee's Mojo Monday sketch.  I am so happy she brought this sketch challenge back.  A new one starts tomorrow, but here's my last minute take :)  Have a great day!  Thanks for stopping by!

Sending Birthday Cheer



 Happy Monday, everyone!  I've got the day off so spent a few hours in the studio :)  I created this card inspired by Laurie's beautiful card for PTI's Create Along with Us.  I looked through my dies to find one that would work and then found the perfect sentiment in the set Don't Forget to Write.  Thanks for stopping by!

Joy to the World ~ Mojo is Back!



 Hello from the studio!  It's been a great morning here in the studio.  With the time change, I was up early and die cutting some sparkly snowflakes to add to this card.  I was over the moon excited when I saw that Julee had started up the Mojo Monday challenge again.  I HAD to participate, especially in the first one back.  I am sneaking it in just before the deadline :)  Thanks for visiting :)

Merry Christmas



Greetings, friends!  If it seems like it's full blown Christmas here on the blog, you are correct!  For some reason I've been inspired to start Christmas early here...maybe it's those gorgeous Painted Poinsettias or that fabulous font from Penned Elegance: Christmas, I just don't know!  This card was created for Dawn's Make it Monday challenge.  We were asked to make a painted brushstroke background.  I used my Dina Wakely acrylic paints in various blues and silver.  Thanks for stopping by!

Hello ~ 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 gorgeous photo...


I was inspired by the colours and fall leaves when I created my clean and layered card.  These two sweet leaves were left over from a past project and I thought they'd be perfect to crown my sweet little chalkboard :)  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!

Joy


Hello friends, I'm back with my take on PTI's Make it Monday challenge.  We could either make a banner or use a banner on our card.  I chose to make a card.  I used a jumbo fishtail die to create my banner and then decorated it with Snowfall Style snowflakes and one of my favourite words, "joy."  Thanks for visiting :)

A Very Happy Birthday to You


Hello dear friends!  Thanks for stopping by to see my take on PTI's October Blog Hop challenge!  We are inspired by this lovely fall photo.

Congratulations!


Greetings friends!  I'm sharing a couple of cards I made for PTI's Transformation Tuesday.  I needed more baby cards in my stash so I created girl and boy cards using the same layout as the card I made for Make it Monday a few weeks ago.  If you look closely you'll see I used the negative die cut from the scarlet jewel leaf frame 2 cards below :)  I couldn't throw it away!


Here's the first card.


Thanks for visiting :)  Have a great week!

Joy ~ Create Along with Us


Hello, friends!  In anticipation of PTI's Create Along with Us challenge, I made these 2 cards this weekend inspired by Melissa's gorgeous poinsettia card HERE. I used her colours, frame, and stamping ideas but used Painted Poinsettias.  I just love pink poinsettias :)  Here's the second card, exactly the same except I used a different sentiment from Bells and Boughs.


 Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a wonderful week :)

Thank You Ever So Much


It was another fun morning in the studio today.  I try to treat myself on a long weekend and get in some inky time :)  I am embracing the gorgeous fall colours and PTI's Make it Monday challenge with this card.  I used my Text and Texture: Leaves stamp set for the first time and it did not disappoint!  It's hard to see all its beauty after die cutting this frame so I saved the inside die cut for another card :)   I cannot waste any of these gorgeous leaf images. Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks ~ Transformation Tuesday Challenge


It's our Thanksgiving Day long weekend here in Canada which means I had some inky time in the studio and got to play along with PTI's Transformation Tuesday challenge :)  For today's card, I used the same layout but different paper and dies to create a teacher card, my most favourite type of card to make :)  Here are the 2 cards side by side.


Thanks for visiting!
