A Garden of Beauty***

I stamped the flowers from Anna Wight's

"Garden of Friendship" set... Colored with Copics and added a sentiment from the same set.

A little stitching and a flower from my collection.

Easy Peasy***


Pretty Posies***

I stamped a stem and flower top from Kim Hughes "Friendly Flowers" set, colored them with Copics and added a sentiment from another one of Kim's collections called " Sentiment Sampler".

A piece of designer paper from my bit bin...

Have a lovely weekend.


Holiday Time 3***

For the life of me I can't remember the manufacturer of this stamp.... But I stamped it in black archival ink, colored it with Tombow markers and water, added a little glitter and mounted it on a piece of black cardstock.

The background paper is from the "Belle Collection" by Kaisercraft. The "Grommet Tag" is by Spellbinders and the sentiment is PTI***

Have a fabulous day everyone and thanks for stopping in***


Holiday Time 2***

I love making Christmas cards and found this guy in one of my drawers.

He is from Penny Black, stamped in black archival ink and colored with Tombow markers and water. I used a glue pen and glitter for his pompom and hat brim.

The designer paper is from The "Mitten Weather" collection by Cosmo Cricket and the ribbon and sentiment are from PTI...

Have a great day everyone***


Holiday Time***

HA!! I betcha thought I meant summer holiday time***

Nope! I always start my holiday cards in the summer so I thought I would share the ones I made over the next few days.

I stamped this "Inky Antics" stamp with Archival Black ink and colored the image with Tombow markers and water.

The paper is the "Eerie Paper" collection from Basic Grey and the rickety fence punch is Martha Stewart. The sentiment is PTI***

Happy Victoria Day to all my Canadian blogging friends** Have a fabulous day and thanks so much for stopping in***



Well today the sun Gods were shining down on us!! No rain, not a drop!! After two weeks of solid rain what a glorious day!!

I thought I would share some spring pictures of our backyard with you!! To celebrate!!

Found this in our back garden. It's a trillium..

While some people think its against the law to pick a trillium they are only protected in provincial parks. AND the seeds are transplanted by way of ants!!

So now it has a nice home under our pine tree!

My little outdoor sitting room!!

The toad house!

The deck just waiting for an outdoor dinner and a nice glass of Pinot Grigio!!!

My lilacs just waiting to pop!!!

Enjoy your weekend everyone!!!


Plant some toothy smiles***

I used another set from Kim Hughes called "Perky Plants"... Colored that toothy plant with Copics and used some papers from My Mind's Eye called "Stella Rose".

I added a little stitching and the sentiment is stamped onto a Spellbinders die.

A few gemstones strategically placed...

I thought the plaid and polka dots worked here***

Have a fabulous day!! Here is Southwestern Ontario we have no rain and I can actually see some blue skies.

Garden here I come***


Rain Rain Go Away***

This card is for me and all my buddies living here in South Western Ontario!!!

Hang in There!!! Warmer weather and sunshine MUST be on the way!!!

Keep all the families from Manitoba and Slave Lake in your thoughts!!


It's your Bird-day***

Just a fun card that I did with a cute set designed by Kim Hughes*** Check out her site"Paper Smooches"***

I positioned all my papers and cut out the circles with my nestabilities. I used one of the cut out circles to stamp the bird onto and colored him up with Copics.

The sentiment is from the same collection and I added a few dew drops as well...

Have a great day everyone and thanks for stopping in!!!


Sew sweet***

I had alot of fun with this card. I used Tim Holtz kraft resist paper which I edged with Fired Brick and Scattered Straw distress inks. I used his dressform die which I stamped with Stampin Up's french script.

Some twine from PTI was wound around the spool and I added a few buttons from PTI's collection.

The kraft resist paper had a dressmaking theme going on so I thought the dressform die worked perfectly with it.

Thanks for stopping in and have a fabulous day!


A mistake***

I know I am tired... But I didn't even realize my mistake until I posted this tag... I used Tim Holtz's relections stamp set and I used it backwards on the tag... LOL!!! Oh well ... I posting it anyway and now you can decide to use it my way or the right way!

I also used a Spellbinders tag die, Tim Holtz's rosette die, a piece of Prima ribbon (which is the flower centre).

The tag is stained with Wild Honey and Peeled Paint distress stain..

Back to the craft room to see if I can come up with something frontwards not backwards!!

Have a good one!!



Wishing you songbirds

to welcome each morning,

Wishing you flowers

to brighten each spring,

Wishing you laughter,

and sharing and caring,

And all of the joy that each new day can bring!

***Happy Mother's Day***

to you Ma!!!
