I enjoyed a wonderful day of creating and found three great challenges to follow ~ you should jump in on the fun ~ first I found this wonderful sketch at the Friday Mashup! great sketch Avery! Thanks!!! Dropped in on Connie & Mary and found a great color challenge and then popped in at Seize the Birthday and joined them again...thanks girls for these great challenges!




I am loving the new Lotus Blossom stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue, oh and I love the that honeycomb from the Butterfly Basics stamp set too...and Sequins...and Gorgeous Grunge...these are MUST haves in my creative corner!!!
Here is the birthday card that I created ~ I was very pleased with the card!



I looked for my Lost Lagoon Stamp Pad, but couldn't seem to find it...must have gotten lost in the move, or maybe, I don't even own it...so I used Bermuda Bay ~ hope that's okay girls ~ I'm really pleased with the outcome of this birthday card ~ jump in and join in the fun!!

ARRRHHH ~ FMS & STB

ARRRHHH....Two Pirate cards back to back...how fun is that?


This little monkey is having a birthday in a couple of weeks and he is also into Jake the Pirate, so of course we have to buy him a Jake the Pirate Ship (shhhh) and I needed a card to go along with the theme of the party ~ can't wait for Lucas to get his gift and matching card!
 Happy 2nd birthday      sweet one ~ xoxo
How fun to find two amazing challenges to go along with my card ~ this sketch at Freshly Made Sketch # 171 was perfect for my card, I took my three banners and gave them a bit of a slant and then topped it off with this fun Happy Birthday Banner, I then fussy cut this and sponged the edges! and then the Seize The Birthday birthday was "Anything Goes"...bonus!  Thanks for these wonderful challenges...and there is still time to play, so why don't you jump in and join the fun :-)



Here is Lucas' birthday card, the texture on the Basic Black CS is a little hard to see, the card looks so sweet IRL ~ gotta love that owl punch...it's a must have in my mind...do you have one! Don't wait, if you don't ... not sure if this will be going forward in the next catalogue...don't be disappointed!


Thanks so much for popping by, I hope you have a wonderful weekend! If you have ANY questions, don't hesitate to ask, I'd love to help you!

Mixels join FMS 170 & Seize the Birthday

How much fun to create a birthday card for Isaac ~ I can't believe our little man will be six next week ~ This is Isaac on the roof top of the condo that we are currently living in ~ the view in the background  is the beautiful French Quarters and The Forks Market in our city ~ we love our new neighbourhood and have embraced our new life style ~ our new condo is down the road about four blocks closer to this beautiful view!


Here we are with our seven grandchildren...wow!!! So much love to share with these wonderful children ~ Six boys ~ One girl


I followed this wonderful sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #170 and since this is a birthday card, it also works with the challenge from Seize The Birthday ~ join in the fun...there is still time to play

Isaac loves the Mixels...a silly fun toy made by Lego..and so, you may not understand this card, but Isaac will be head over heels with his card...and...his gifts....shhhh!!!! Not a word, promise :-)

Color Throwdown on the Chalk Board!

Well I'm slowly getting into the hang of stampin' in a tiny area...and I mean tiny...we moved from our home of 23 years just this past summer ~ my studio was 1800 sq feet, as I claimed the entire basement and it was wonderful ~ now our entire space that we're in is 960 sq feet! We've purchased a 1400 sq foot condo, but it won't be ready until March (my hope)...Dean figures May...I'll stick with my hope for now!




When I saw the challenge at Color Throwdown I knew exactly what I wanted to do with this fabulous challenge ~ and there is still time to play, so jump on in and join in the fun


The Chalk Board Technique is SO much fun...I find it SO hard to create a one layer card well, I sure think it's difficult...., but the Chalk Board Technique satisfied the one layered card for me ~ 
 I'll be creating more of these, stay posted as I'll be posting a few more Chalk Boards ~ but in the mean time...Here is my first ever try at the Chalk Board Technique that I've entered into the Color Throwdown for this week ~ 


 If you just humour me for a few minutes, I want to show you a few shots of our new digs ~ this picture was taken at the Human Rights Museum,  up in the tower ~ which is across the river from our 'interim home'


This 'lighted area' (in the picture below) is the tower where the above picture was taken ~ this place is massive and an absolutely beautiful building


This shot was taken on the roof of our 'interim home' on New Years Eve ~ Happy New Year all and thanks so much for popping by ~ have a wonderful day and may the Lord bless and keep you and make His wonderful face to shine upon you!
