Moving

I can't believe it's been almost a month since I last posted here.  No, I have not left the country...gone into hiding, or been arrested.  I am moving!!   From our ever growing small town, to a little village 10-15 minutes away.  So not completely out of the area.  

The decision to move was a quick one, and within a week we had our house on the market and sold in a day.  So the hunt was on for a new abode. Found one, and we move next week.  Sadly my craft room is all packed up at the moment, but I did manage to make a few quick cards last weekend before the boxes came out.  

I made this card for my son and his girlfriend, who just purchased and moved into their very first home last week. I used the new Just Add Color Specialty designer series paper, and Delightful Daisy designer series paper. Card base was soft sky and I used a doily to add a bit of contrast.





I will miss my large craft room, but I am sure I will find a cosy spot in the new place that will offer just as much fun. I will continue with my monthly classes, and Paper Pumpkin club in September, so watch out for the updated class info.

Have a great weekend.
Cheers

CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge

Well, I know I promised this for last Thursday....but life has been pretty hectic around here. We have decided to list our house on the market and move! So between working, decluttering and looking after our son's two dogs....I just couldn't find the time to make a card, until today.  

This is another card challenge from CAS Colours & Sketches for clean and simple cards.This weeks challenge is a colour challenge, and the three colours Cathy gave us were Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst and Island Indigo. Here is my card.



I used the Whisper White Notecards to make this card, with a layer of Berry Burst cardstock underneath, then a top layer of Whisper White cardstock for the sentiment and cut out....which I did using the Daisy punch.  With the punched out piece of daisy, I sponged it in Lemon Lime Twist ink and popped it onto the top using a Stampin Dimensional.  The sentiment from Daisy Delight stamp set was stamped in Island Indigo ink.  Super cute.



This card will be a Make and Take at the Kemptville Women In Business July meeting. My fellow KWIB members will be making this card...can't wait to show them how quick and easy it is, and what a wonderful tool for their businesses. Customer thank you cards.

Just in case next week is as crazy busy as this one....not promising which day I will post.  So just stay tuned and check back often.  

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week.

Paper Players Challenge

What a fabulous long weekend....to start with it was Canada Day on Saturday, and my son was headlining the festivities at Riverside Park in my small town. His performance was amazing, all his aunts, uncles and cousins came from all across Canada to watch. If that wasn't fabulous enough, during his last song, he proposed to his girlfriend right before the fire works went off.  It was magical!

Sunday, we went to a big family BBQ and Monday I relaxed, just having some fun with a card challenge.  Have you ever tried one??  This card challenge was from The Paper Players.  The challenge was to make a card based on a theme...which was a thank you for your favourite teacher or a message of congratulations for a graduating student. Here is my card.



I used two stamp sets for this, Dragonfly Dreams with the matching die's, and part of the sentiment from the May paper pumpkin Sara's kit. The card base was Soft Sky and stamping done on Whisper White

I really enjoying playing along with this challenge....you should give it a try or at least check out the lovely designs on their page.


Stop by on Thursday and I will do another card challenge just for fun.

Happy Canada Day

Just wanted to pop in and wish all my customers a very Happy Canada Day on this, Canada's 150th birthday!!  One of my fellow demonstrators came up with this card, and I just knew I had to make it and share it with you.  



Would love to hear how you all plan on spending Canada Day....I will be watching my son perform at our local park.  He is headlining the day of activities and music, performing right before the fireworks.  Can't wait!!

Birthday Deliveries Week - Card #2

On Tuesday, I showed you a card using the stamp set Birthday Deliveries and a cute little girl standing with her back to us. The designer series paper from this suite, Birthday Memories shows this little girl's front view. The co-ordinating die Birthday Friends Framelits actually cuts her out. I thought it was so cute, I needed to make a card using it. What do you think??


The Soft Sky card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4". I stamped the sentiment in Dapper Denim on a piece of Whisper White card stock that is 4" x 5 1/4". Then glued it onto the card front at a wonky angle, which I trimming off the excess card stock. The little poodle was stamped on scrap Whisper White and coloured in using my blender pens and Crumb Cake ink. The little girl was die cut from the DSP and both adhered to the front of the card using Stampin Dimensionals.  Little enamel shapes were added to the card front to make it pop. Super cute!!

Stop by next week for another sample of my Colourful Cards.
