Happy Tuesday! I'm just coming off a fabulous four day weekend - friends, family, shopping, exercise, gardening, crafting, relaxation! Hope you had a great one too.
Made another card for Seize the Birthday today. Went masculine this time. I love a cute penguin (which is weird cause I'm not usually a critter person) so couldn't resist this adorable image from Bugaboo Stamps.
Here is the sketch and all the challenge details are found on this post:

Here's this week's sketch. I flipped it because I thought it worked withe the image a bit better.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great week.
Happy Monday everyone! It's time to reveal the kit for May over at Paper Made Bakery! You should have arrived here from the super talented Angi's blog. I'm positively giddy about this kit. I was playing with it the other night and came up with so many ideas. It's definitely my favourite kit to date and I think you'll love it too! Here's my card for today.
I just love everything about this kit. The gorgeous paper, the great stamps, the amazing embellishments (veneers, buttons, pins and puffy stickers - swoon), the fabulous ribbons... just blew me away. It's not always easy for me to make a 'stamp free' card but this was a piece of cake. That said, the sentiments in the stamp set are amazing. Very versatile! You will want this On the Go kit... I guarantee it!
I know the rest of the team has some amazing creations for you! Be sure to check them out... next on the hop is the fabulous Julie! Here's the whole list:
... and here's the little mini video tutorial too... hope you like it!
Have a fabulous Friday and wonderful weekend. Thanks for stopping by. I have been LAME at commenting lately and I apologize! Life is crazy busy....I always appreciate your sweet comments and hope to get back at it soon.
Hugs and take care,
Happy Wednesday and welcome to my very first post as a member of the Seize the Birthday Design Team!
So excited to be part of this team (and to build up my stash of birthday cards). Here's the sketch for this week...
I'm usually really good at remembering people's birthday and sending cards. This year is a bit different though... I'm remembering the birthday but not getting the card into the mail box! This card is quite appropriate I thought... I will definitely use it! This week's sponsor is the Cutting Cafe. I LOVE this adorable camera.
Hope you can play along with this fun sketch! All the details are here. Be sure to check out the blog to see what the rest of the fabulous team came up with.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,

Happy Sunday! I'm happy to announce that I'm joining the Seize the Birthday design team! Love playing with sketches to this is right up my alley. Also, I never have enough birthday cards so this will help my stash. ;)
Happy Thursday! Just a quick post today. I made this card a while ago but didn't get a chance to blog it. Playing along with the Hero Arts Contest this month (Just for Her and a sketch).
Well... turns out I am a first round winner with this card! So excited! Thanks Hero Arts! Was pleased with how this card came together. Not my usual colour combo but it seems to work. The wood veneer butterfly was coloured with a Copic, then I used some spray adhesive and sprinkled on some Hero Arts Prisma Glitter.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Welcome. I am going to digress from crafting for a moment. Last Friday, I asked people to leave 'a random fact' about themselves in the comments section. This was one of them..
So, when the bombs exploded in Boston yesterday, I thought of this comment. I don't know Karen and I have no way of contacting her but I do hope she is ok... I've been thinking of her a lot. Some of you may know that I'm a bit of a runner. I do short distances (5 to 10 km) and have a fabulous running group (the 'Divas') that gets me out of bed early on Saturday mornings. Sending a big hug out to my Divas today... and all runners. I know how triumphant a feeling it is to finish a run, what a sense of a accomplishment it is. To have such a horrible thing happen to take that feeling away from so many people, from all over the world... it makes my heart ache. Fortunately, none of my running friends were there and none of my Bostonian friends were either... but my heart goes out to all those who were impacted by this shocking event. I'm happy to hear of all the kind gestures that brought people together afterwards. I'm happy to hear that upcoming runs here and around the world will continue as scheduled. To run and triumph in the face of adversity.
ETA: Karen did post a comment that she is ok (see comment below). Thanks Karen! So happy you stopped in and that all is well with you.
ETA: I did have a video tutorial up earlier today but had some technical issues. It will be up again sometime in the near future! My apologies.
