The digi that I used is the super cute Tiny Swirly owl that you can find in the O is for Owls set.  I wanted to have a card just because.. and this is just perfect to send to my dad who loves owls!

A summer goodbye

Goodevening!!!  How was your day?  Mine was really good.  I didn't craft as much as I had thought... but it was a nice day spent with the family!

I'm here tonight to share with you a little card that I had so much intention to do way before.. but then again you know what happens... and life takes hold and I didn't do my card.  So today it was time.  And this is the great time because I can share over at Show-it-off-sunday from Create with TLC.  It's the time to share something crafty that you have done!

So this little card is the perfect thing to share since not only did I make it but I also used a great sentiment from Create with TLC.  That was actually the start of this card.  I was really stomped as to what I should do for the challenge over at Tiddly Inks.  It's about goodbye... and I didn't  need any goodbye card but then I came across this sentiment and figured this was perfect!!!  And I had an image that was a freebie from Tiddly Ink don't know if it still is...

Retro ATC

Goodmorning.  I just love this little quiet blogging time with my coffee in the morning ;o)  So wish I could do this every day, instead of rushing out of the house like a mad woman lol

Anyway, I'm here to share with you a little ATC group that I did for a ATC swap.  I was waiting for the proper time to share it with you and the fabulous challenge over at Wicked Wednesday ATC was just perfect for this.

To make these I used Create with TLC's Men Couture paper.  It was just perfect and I reduced the paper to make it like a digi ;o)  Love the color.  I was supposed to be doing blue ATC... I think I did pretty good on that end.  This is the grouping of the 9 ATC that I did.

OSAAT - Challenge # 183

Hello everyone!  It's time for a new challenge over at OSAAT.  This time our challenge for you is Autumn!

This time I had the pleasure of working with an image from Floppy Latte called Single Sunflower that you can find here.

I thought it was the perfect image for a fall card!

Scribbles and Scrap challenge- Sept 28 2013

Hello everyone!  I'm back to share with you my creations made this time for the Scribble and scrap challenge.

Our challenge are always anything goes!  So you really should enter.  And we also have some fabulous candy given out every 2 weeks!  You need to check this out.

For my creation this time I did something a bit different.  The Scribble and scrap store has some great toppers and card kit!  And I decided to use some of those and make a package of little cards that I can give at Christmas to my dad who really love owls!  So here they are.  I made them in pairs of 2.  What I love is that I used some smaller size cards.  And I used some spared paper so use my scrap pile YAY!!!!

I layered the images and the papers in my word document and then printed them out and fussy cut around them.

Here are the images of the 2 different takes with the same images ;o)

So what do you think?  Is that a cute little set of cards?  I used one of my French stamps that says a note which can be used for any occasions.  I did use an embossing folder as well for the last card that you see on the left.  It's the divine swirl from Cuttlebug.  Now just need to use a ribbon to tie these up together ;o)

I was inspired by this little picture:

I'm entering these cards in the following challenges:

  1. 2 sisters challenge - Anything goes
  2. a creative romance - Fairy tale or winged creation - I went with winged creation ;o)
  3. Inspired challenges - Picture of the cute little owls
  4. An inky situation - Owls

That's my 1st post of the day!  There's one more on the way.  Hope you will be back for it.  I hope that I can get some crafting time... it seems that though I thought I had lots done ahead... well I had forgotten some yikes... so need to get my butt moving!

I'm having a giveaway to celebrate the fact that I have reached 400 followers!!! WOW so if you want to enter it's here:

An old fashion hello

Hello everyone!  Hope you had a fabulous Saturday! Mine was really busy... I manage to go the hair dresser with my daughter, go for my drivers licence, do the laudry, change my wardrobe from Summer to Fall... do the cleaning of the house and do some food for the family... yup busy busy!  As my reward I did some playing and it was with a wonderful image from Digi stamp 4 joy!!!  I saw this great challenge on their blog and just had the right to play!

The image is JK23.

Freshed Brewed DT - Sept 28th 2013

It's Saturday morning and probably before I'm actually out of bed lol.  And it's time for a new DT creation for Freshed brewed designs.  This time I'm creating something a bit different from my usual creations and I'm doing it with the fabulous digi A Bug that you can find here.

You might remember seeing a little bookmark last weekend on my blog... while I was making that one I did this one at the same time!  And pleased my youngest child William.  And BTW realizing that it looks almost pinkish in the 1st picture... but the card stock is more a red.  You see it better on the 2nd picture that I took in his book.  He was really happy to have it!

Delicious Doodles DT card - Sept 27th 2013

Hello everyone.  It's Friday!!!!  WOOOHOOOO sooo looking forward to the weekend!

This time I'm showing my Delicious Doodles challenge post on this blog because it's a softer masculine card!  ;o)  Our challenge this week for you is to use Eyelets or brads.  Pretty easy right?!?

For my card I used the wonderful Passage of time.  I thought this would be an awesome CAS card.

Christmas take 2 - Lady Anne's Challenge

Ok so I shared the outside of my Christmas card here now I'm here to share with you the inside of my card for the Lady Annes challenges because I used the 2nd digi on the inside ;o)  But I needed to create 2 posts to properly enter the challenge!  I'm so impressed... I managed to use both of the wonderful digis from Digi Stamps 4 joy that are available as freebies if you participated in the last challenge and this within a week of getting them!!! Instead of my usual scramble to finish them at the end of the month lol

So this is the full view of the inside of the card.

Christmas take 1 - Lady Anne's challenge

Goodevening!  Hope you had a fabulous Thursday.  In my case it was busy but busy is good.  It makes the day go fast and then I'm home to craft lol.  Yesterday there was no crafting time because I finished late at work... it was month end... so that's always a busy time for a finance director lol.  And I missed WOYWW... oh well... next week!

I had colored a bunch of images on Tuesday night. And I'm here to share a card that I made with one of those images tonight.  It's a card that I did to participate in the challenge over at Lady Anne's Progressive Christmas challenge.  I participated last month therefore I got this month's 2 images for free!  And this time the sponsor is Digi stamps 4 joy.  It was great fun to use those images.  I used one for the top of the card and one for the inside which I will share in a second post this way I can enter it properly in the challenge this time.

Digital Delight DT card - Halloween house

Hello everyone!  It's time for my DT card over at Digital Delights and this time I used the fabulous Halloween house accessories set and the Halloween sentiments set number 1.

I have started making smaller cards, this one is about 4x6... I have all card bases and haven't used them (like this little craft card), the big 6x6 are also more expensive mailing out.  I'm also thinking that this is a great format to send to fellow friends with some goodies in a bubble envelope which the 6x6 don't always fit.  The best part is that I use as well some paper scraps that I don't  get to use for the 6x6... So all around YAY ;o)

Creative knockouts - Challenge #4

Hello everyone!  It's time for a new challenge over at Creative knockouts and this time our challenge for you is about favourite things!!!

Our awesome sponsor is:
Robyn's Fetish

For my card I played with the awesome Pumpkin Border digi from Robyn's Fetish.  I have to admit I added a lot of my favorite things to this card, Button, Robin's Nest drew drops.  I used my very favorite pack of paper for Autumn which is Bobunny - Apple cider only have a few more papers of it... I used some ribbon as well as my spellbinder.  Yup lots of favorits ;o)

Two daisies in a bottle - ATC

Hello everyone!  Hope you are doing well!  There was nothing on this side of the blogging world today... it was on the darker blog.  So I figured tonight that I should put a little something up!

I had a pretty busy night in my craft room... I colored a bunch of images and then I came across the digi that I had printed to play along with A day for daisies.  It's called two daisies in a bottle hence the name of the post!  Well during my lunch time wondering in the blogland I had come across Ike's blog and her fabulous CAS ATC for the Fun with ATC challenge!  So just HAD to try this out... well as it happens the image was a tiny bit bigger than the usual ATC size.. but I figured I could fussy cut that part of the image and give it more interest this way.  I also didn't color the daisies in the traditional colors... I wanted to go with the blue background.

Eureka DT - Tags

Hello, I'm back with my 2nd post and this time it's for Eureka Stamps.  This time our challenge for you is Tag you're it!  So do a card with a tag or do a tag.

I decided in my case to get ahead of Christmas and start making tags!  I have never used homemade tags ;o)  So this is the perfect time to do so.

I used the great image digi 17103 - Three candles.

Tammy's Scrapin Corner challenge # 81

Hello everyone!  Yup it's Monday!  And this means a challenge over at Tammy's Scrapin corner.

Little pirate

Hello everyone!  So how was your Sunday?!?  I made some food than I played a bit and didn't get much done however... I was making some different altered art items... and well that really does take longer to do!  But it was fun to get my hands dirty lol and now they are all dry after being washed so many times today ;o)

I wanted to play over at the Kraftin Kimmie challenge for their back to school.  And I didn't want to make another card that would not be used!  So I figured I would do a bookmark.  I've been meaning to try out making the corner ones and when I saw the DT inspiration that really got me thinking that this would be fun!  I could give it to one of my son's for his book (he really has a lot to read for school right now) and maybe get him inspired to read, ?!?  Or maybe not... but it won't be because he doesn't have a bookmark (BTW is it just me or do your kids lose those like crazy?!?  Mine just keep losing them and I have no clue as to how they go about doing that...)

Anyway I digress, I looked over in google to find a tutorial (mind you I'm pretty sure there must be a form in my Cameo that would do this... but I figured I would make it by hand with some scraps of paper) and I found one.  You can see it for yourself here. It's super easy so that I really love!  And I kept the shape for future use.  And this way I can make new ones when they lose them... or when I have a challenge requiring to make something other than a card!

I used a little pirate that I had purchased at a clearance sale from Kraftin Kimmie... so don't have the proper name for him but I really think he's totally adorable!!!

Dear coffee

I'm here to share with you the 2nd card I made with a new set from Create with TLC.  Here's the fabulous new set:

This time I'm using 2 of this set Vintage coffee pot and Dear Coffee.  Again I made one of those smaller cards that allows me to use some of my scraps of papers!!! YAY

Dear Chocolate

Hello everyone!!!  Hope you are having a fabulous weekend.  I'm here to share with you a little creation that I did with a new set from Create with TLC.  Here's the fabulous new set:

For my card I used the great sentiment Dear Chocolate and paired it up with a digi from Scribbles Design it's part of the set that you can find here.  But you can find an image really similar that's on our challenge blog here.  And while you are there you should come and join in for the fun!!!

613 Avenue Create - Choose your colors

Goodmorning everyone!!!  I'm here to share my creation for 613 Avenue Create.  This time our challenge for you is to choose which of the colors from all of the columns you will want to craft with... and I didn't read the memo properly lol and got it as monochrome... so like some of you guys I'm going anything goes this week ;o)

Our fabulous sponsor for this challenge is none other than :
I totally looooove his images and it was such a joy to work with one.  I played with I loves ya dis much.  I just love this little guy!  He looks so very cheerful.  I wasn't sure that I would be able to pull it off coloring him completely in blues but I think I did really good.  I'm just sad that actually I could have used other colors lol I gave myself a completely different challenge!

Jump for joy

Hello everyone!!! I decided to play this week over at Wicked wednesday atc.  And this time the challenge is about Daisies - it's I'm Crazy with Daisies

I decided to play with a little stamp that I had and that wasn't inked yet.  It's from Penny Black - it's part of a clear stamp set.  The big size one is called Jump for joy.  The clear set... I don't know it's not written on the plastic.  It also allows me to play in the Penny b friends saturday challenge - Anything but a card so since this is an ATC I'm thinking it qualifies!

For this little ATC I decided to try doing a special embellishment!  I did a bottle cap embellishment.  I want to get some more ideas!!! And I actually saw a wonderful embellishment on some of my blogger friend Nikki!!! She gave me some tips and I'll be trying those out!!!

Admire your juggling

Hello everyone!  I got to work today... and after a few pills for headaches managed to finish my day.... so looking forward to a quiet weekend!

I've been meaning to play over at Handmade harbour.  They have some really cute freebie including the one I'm using today.  I also saw a couple of images that I would love to be able to purchase but right now finances won't allow that so in the meantime I'm using the freebie to play in their Happy Day challenge!!!  I figured with this image it was great to use as well a wonderful sentiment that I got from Create with TLC.

So the freebie is called 216- Elephant ball and balancing little girl.

Digital Delight DT card - Fall kids set

Hello everyone!  It's Thursday already WOOOHOOO and that means that it's time for me to share with you my card for the wonderful Digital Delights DT team.  For my card I used the fabulous set Fall Kids set and Fall sentiments set.  I figured if we can go non traditional for Christmas we can go non traditional for Fall as well!!!

Penguin Cocoa

After Halloween comes Christmas lol.  So for this post I'm here to share with you a card I made for the Imagine that progressive challenge.  This month it was about  a cute little image that can be used for Christmas!

So I did just that... I created a little Christmas card for my stash.

Kreepy Kitty

I'm back to share another little make that I made this time with a Kraftin Kimmie stamp that had yet to be inked!!!!  Wow I have so many wonderful stamps that are just in dire need of some ink lol.  It was the perfect time to play because it's Anything goes this week!

And so I used Kreepy Kitty - had to research on google to figure out the name because the it came in a sale and had no label.

I decided to do some cards on smaller size cards!  It's good to use for sending in packages to other crafters!  The 6x6 are way too big to sent this way.

Autumn Tumble

Ok so yes I wasn't well today... it's a good thing that I crafted a lot on previous days...  I'm here to finally blog a little card that I made with some fabulous inspiration from this picture from a great challenge called Pinspirational challenges they always have some fabulous pictures to inspire us!  And I will share at the bottom of the post the picture.

I also wanted to play with the House Mouse fall challenge!  So this was the perfect opportunity to pull out the great stamp from Joanna Sheen Autumn Tumble JSHM020.  I've been promising myself to use my stamps more!  I seem to really neglect them.  And since I really loooove the house mouse well this is the perfect opportunity.


Goodevening everyone!  Hope you had a good day!  Mine wasn't good... after my son being sick it was my turn... spent the biggest part of the day in bed and just blogging a bit now so that I can sleep again tonight because if I sleep anymore I won't be able to sleep tonight!

So for my WOYWW post you will not be seeing anything on my desk other than a wonderful card that I received from Desire with the stamps that I had purchased from her!!!  WOW her cards are even more stunning in person than on the screen.  I'm totally ecstatic to have one of her creation and will be cherishing it for sure!

So what's on your desk today?!?  Is it as awesome as this card?!?

Looking forward to seeing it.

BTW while you are here!  Don't forget I'm having a giveaway to celebrate the fact that I have reached 400 followers!!! WOW so if you want to enter it's here:


Lady Ann's Progressive challenge - Digi 5202

It's time for the progressive challenge card for the challenge Lady annes challenges.  I'm usually sooooo ahead of things...and well I ended up doing this with just 5 days to spare!  I'm not going to have time to do the 2nd card but at least with one in I can get the next images free!  That's what's totally amazing with the great progressive challenges.

This time the sponsor is QKR stampede.  And since I have already done a card with the other digi (in the past) I figured I would use Digi 5202 this time.

Ani Kitty Pickaboo

Goodevening!!!  I'm back with another post.  Yup I've been busy but again this is from this past weekend.  I have been meaning to play with the great digi freebie that's offered over at Sk digis for the month of September.  I really love her digis so JUST had to play ;o)

Here's my take with the wonderful Ani Kitty Pickaboo.  I printed the image twice to be able to pop him up.

Mushroom and ladybird

Hello everyone!  Hope you had a fabulous day!  I had to stay home today because my youngest was not feeling well... but since I didn't have my work computer with me... well that meant that I got to craft a bit (how sad right?!?) ;o)

What I'm showing you right now is not something that I made today however... If you want to see one you have to check out my darker blog here.  I promise... that one is not that bad lol

So I'm here to share with you a little card I made for the Just some lines challenge.  They have the cutest little freebie for you to play with (which I did of course and you can see it here).  It's called Mushroom and ladybird - hence the name of the post!

Glass of wine

Hello everyone!  Hope you had a great Monday!!! I saw the cutest image on FB about this 

Photo: *sigh*  why do GREAT weekends have to come to an end! Thanks to everyone who came out to play at THE GREAT CANADIAN SCRAPBOOK CARNIVAL!  YEEHAW!!!!
Yup just had to share... it's the way I feel about Mondays... but they still come ;o)  I'm here to share with you tonight a card I made Saturday before I had company over because my SIL's cousin is becoming a "sommelier"  in English it's "wine waiter" that just doesn't translate well I find the great job that she will be doing of getting the perfect wine for each special meals that people will be ordering!  Anyway there was a great article on her and I figured it would be fun to make a card just for her.  I knew I had an image from Sassy Studio that would fit the bill!  And I managed to find 2 sentiments from Create with TLC for it ;o)

I found Glass of wine - appropriate right?!?

Here's my card:
