My 2nd Workshop Card

Okay first let me just say you are not seeing it wrong .... yep it is crooked....ooops, I  will be sure to make sure everyone else gets there's on straight.....LOL

Anyways this is for a young lady's workshop and even though approx 5 of them are more advanced than this card she is likely going to be having a couple ladies that have not ever done this before so I was trying to make cards that are a little easier and yet have some wow to them.

However it is the last couple days before March Break is over so I am going to make this a fast post....hope you liked the card I was inspired by some talented lady from a demo only site.

A card for an upcoming camp and workshop

This is a complete case of  card from Stampin Connection  Eileen LeFevre I mean I changed a little but very little.  I loved the freshness and springy feeling of it. 7

Well it is Friday of March break, the week went by quite quickly and we did nothing overly exciting as it was not a good week for some of the families that have kids the same age as mine.  You know what theough really there is no reson for them to be on the go all the time just because it is a break from school....also since we will be leaving for Florida in another couple weeks they will have all their fun then....smile

Our fun plans for the day is getting groceries and vacuuming...wohoo do I know how to have fun or what!!!! Maybe I will get to have my own kind of fun in the form of stamping a little later....hee,hee

In the meantime hope you all have a fantastic day

Sketch challenge #324 from Splitcoast.

One minute it was Monday and the next thing it is Thursday, so I am a couple days behind on my sketch challenge since I have finally got myself on a bit of a schedule again....yeah!!!!!, but i am sure no one will really care

So I am loving the April special that we have just heard about from SU.  The April special is a sneek of a stamp set and designer paper.  I will share more with you soon. Just so you know though this s some of the paper and one of the stamps....hee, hee .... hate to rub it in but there are some definite perks to being a demo.

In the meantime you have 14 more days before the ending of Sale-a-Bration.  For any of you in the Southern Ontario area and would like to come by and make 4 cards and have a fun afternoon Monday March 28th at 1:00pm email or call me to save you a seat and get your supplies all put together for you.
Saturday Mar 26th is still open as well but unless you call me it will be cancelled since most replies have been for Monday's class.

Well for now that is it for now and I hope you all have a lovely evening
Happy Stamping

My mojo got rejuvinated at Mojo Monday #182

MONDAY!!!!!! The first day of March Break and my kids have already been at it..ahhhhhggggg...LOL

Actually they have been no different than any other day...it is the love/hate relationship that most siblings have, however I do not remember it too much with my own brother but I am sure he remembers it different...smile
Also they cannot be that bad if I was able to go to my beloved craft room (that is under some major purging ( three arbage bags worth), rearranging and soon to be construction...love having a handy hubby)

Okay so I have so many thoughts going through my brain lately that it is been getting a little oerwhelmed that I needed some help SOOOOO I have gone onto the almost forgotten about site Splitcoaststampers and printed off a bunch...and I mean a bunch of old sketches
, because well I know the papers I want to use and usually the stamp I want to use but then I come to a halt so I printed of the sketches to give me a starter and I just build on it from there, sometimes the outcome looks nothing like the sketch that gets me started...LOL

Now today I thought hey why not do a MOJO Monday sketch , and so I did if you want to see it just go here:  http://mojomonday.blogspot.com/  you will see the challenge, the teams cards and then anyone else that wanted to post their project is below....FUN huh?!!!!!

So I hope you liked it, again I pulled out a set I have not played with for awhile as it was feeling a little neglected....kind of like that little salt shaker from the Uncle Bens commercials..my kids are so sad over that commercial and are so happy that pepper is putting up signs to try and find his friend...LOL  kids are very funny!!!!!  Now that I have gotten way off topic I am going to let you all go, hope you found some inspiration from my card in some way and thanks for stopping by....come back anytime\

My Friday Mash Up submission

Well I am back sooner than I thought I would be but I need to post my card on the blog before getting it onto the home website of http://fridaymashup.blogspot.com/ this Friday they gave us a sketch challenge.  I had this great intention of playing along every week and then life got in the way so here I go again....start the week with mojo monday and end with the friday mash up....LOL

So go to the website you will see the challenge for the week and a few samples, up load your sample and well it is just fun.

I have been trying to grab some stamp sets I have not played with for some time and this is one of them...I LOVE this set but for some reason with all the new ones in the mini and the awesome sale-a-bration sets I seem to have been neglecting the good old reliable ones from old...smile

Well since I just posted my last card all of 20 minutes ago I am fresh out of stuff to talk to you about....hee,hee....will never happen, those that know me I never run out of things to talk about.

All the same I am off for now and I think with all the ideas running around in my itty bitty brain I will go do some more creating before it is time to go to the basement for our family pizza, movie camp over.

Happy Stamping

Here is the 2nd card as I promised

Good Saturday Afternoon

Yep I blame it on Corrine Sommerville the grey sky, wet snow and cold weather it is all her fault.....sorry Roxy :)
Really lets be honest it is no ones fault but I am sooooo ready for the green grass, leaves on the trees and all the humidity that summer brings just to get away from this gloomy weather.

On a happy note though here is the second card that I was telling you about yesterday....not to sound braggish but I am really happy with the turnout of this card, I still find that I struggle to make the cards bigger than the average size.  I don't want to have to much open space but also do not want to over accessorise so I hope you all like this card as much as I do and find some inspiration from it in some way.

I tend to forget to add supplies used so since I am thinking of it here they are:
STAMPS: Easter Blessings
INKS: Basic Grey
PAPER: Pretty in Pink, Newsprint DSP, Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Vellum paper
ACCESSORIES: Pearls, Flower punch from the Itty Bitty Pack, Scallop edge punch, rosettes (coloured with the P in Pink marker) P in Pink Satin Ribbon, Vintage Wallpaper EF, AND the BIG SHOT....you just have to have one of these.

Well that is it for all.....I may be back later with my Friday mash up card a little later
In the meantime

Green House Garden

Okay Lady Winter is so not wanting to leave us this year....we went from tons of rain over a two day period to an blanket of snow this morning....uhggg.

Although this is the kind of weather that gets me into the craft room and gets me creating. 

We have another couple of people leavingour congergation to go to a sign language one in another town...we will miss them but what an experience to help ones with such a hardship to deal with in their lives.  We wish all the best to these two famillies and know they will be welcomed with open arms but we still need to give a proper goodbye.  They will have their going away party this Sunday and each will recieve a card....this is one of them.

Again this card is larger for the purpose of having more room for many to write them a note. It is a whole sheet of 81/2x11.   I will post the other one tomorrow.

Hope you liked it and found a sense of inspiration
