Ottawa Bound!

Well I have no card to post for you today, as I've been too busy and excited to get anything done. Daren and I are leaving at 6 pm this evening and driving to Ottawa to be a part of the big NHL hoopla this weekend. It's about a 12- 14 hr. drive so we should be there by noon tomorrow, returning sometime on Monday?? We won't get to go to an actual game, but apparently there is a big party downtown and we'll definately be apart of that! Personally I'm not a hockey fan, but I'm going to Ottawa, where we are meeting some friends we haven't seen for a while so it will be nice. One friend is flying in from Alberta, and Daren's sister is flying in from London, (England) for the weekend. Nothing brings Canadians together like a good game of!

Enjoy your weekend!

I'll have a drink for you Pat!

Productive Day!

I guess the weekend scrap must have inspired me a little. Today, I finished a card that went out to my secret sister this morning (will post after she's received it), and came up with this card for another swap that I've joined up for. These past few cards are my first experiences using chipboard, so I'm a bit out of my "comfort zone" but having fun trying to come up with ways to use it! On this card I used one of the M's $1 stamps "laugh" for the sentiment, and to go along with that used the little frog stamp in the center of the flower, because I figured the receiver would get a little laugh from it!!??? Goodness knows, it seemed cute at the time! Enjoy!

Weekend Scrap Fun!

Got home this afternoon, from a weekend of scrapping with the girls! Had so much fun, it was great to just get away and have some time to do "my thing", or nothing, if I wanted to ...LOL!

Anyway here are two of the cards I made this weekend, one is for friends of ours who just had twin baby girls last week! How exciting for them, I said I envy and pity them both at the same time, as they already have a 5 yr. old at home!

The other card is for another weekly Simply Sentiments challenge, this one is using chipboard and arylic paint, all stamps are from Skipping Stones Design. I had to also paint the blue card stock to match! Hope you like it!

TFL, and have a great day/week!

Card swap results!

I have bee so bad this week at updating my blog! I was so sick last week, then the weekend was a long one so we were away and Berg had an inservice day yesterday, so I really have had any time to get anything done.

This is a card I did for an unfinished card swap on Simply Sentiments. The object was to send one on those troublesome cards, that you just never got around to finish, to someone else to finish, and in turn you recieve an unfinished card from someone else to finish. This is the card I received and finished, unfortunately I never thought to take a before picture. The card was great when it was sent to me and really didn't need much to finish it off at all. I widened the polka-dot PP, added new lace, re-attached the flower, and added the sentiment (stamped on the reverside side of the double sided polka-dot PP). This was a great swap to participate in! Thanks for think of it Lee!

TFL! Have a great day/week!

Weekend Challenge

Here are the cards I did for the weekend challenge on Simply Senitiments! Had fun doing these, love those card sketches! I left the sentiments off of them until I'm ready to use, the challenge was to make four to try and build up a card stash! TFL...Have a great day!

New Papers!

I love getting new papers, but find I never use the whole sheet and end up with too many scraps! I found these little 4x6 paper packs from K&co. at Michaels. They are all co-ordinating, 3 of each sheet, and just perfect for cards....minimal scraps! Here are a couple of cards I made last night! All stamps are from Skipping Stones Design.

OK , so I couldn't stand looking at this card anymore, had to tear it apart and refininsh! I'm still not 100% happy with it, as none of the stamps I had just looked right and ended up hand writing the sentiment. Oh well it's done now!

Sunday Fun!

Well, the sink box kept the kids busy all last night and most of this morning, which left me with some play time. This started off as just that.... playing, but I liked how it turned out, so I will use it for a card. I love the flourishes with the flowers and glitter glue, not sure about the ribbon and sentiment, but that's the best I could come up with to finish it off. Maybe if I keep looking at it for a while I'll think of something better! This play was totally inspired by Sherrie Siemens, I just love her use of swirls and flourishes. TFL!

It's the Weekend!

It's Saturday! Having a good day so far, we went to check out the new Dartmouth Crossing and it looks like it is going to be quite nice when it's all done, but just as cazy as Bayer's Lake. At Home Depot we finally got a new bathroom sink and faucet!!! Yeah....good bye cream faux marble, Hello white porcelin! I also HAD to stop in at the new Michael's to check out the Martha stuff. I must say it was all very nice, and over priced, but didn't really see anything I'd want. They had a half wall dedicated to K & Co., alot of which I would have loved to have. The new store is much better then the Bayer's Lake store, although I know they were changing the scarpbooking section at that one, so I haven't seen it finished yet. Anyway here are a couple of cards I've ben playing with, again with my flourishes. Flowers are from my SS Prize Pkg. Have a great weekend!

First Post!

Well, here's my first "official" post! Having a crappy day, I'm sick with a head cold ! Abbey's watching TV and playing dressup with some clothes that a friend gave her! So we're not having a very active day around here. I made this card last night after the kids went to bed and DH was engrossed in a hockey game. I wanted these flourishes so bad for x-mas and I've hardly used them, so thought it was time to break them out again.

Enjoy, TFL, and have a great day!
