Happiest Birthday Wishes ~ Curtain Call Inspiration



 Hello everyone! It's time for a new challenge over on the  Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.  This time we’re inspired by this photo…


It seems I've been going back and forth between Christmas and Fall cards lately...kind of like the weather we've had here in BC...cold, warm, SNOW, melting snow, falling leaves....repeat! HA!  Acorns are so cool and sweet...I chose this darling acorn paper to make my son's birthday card.  The woodsy vibe and simple layout lend themselves well to a masculine card. Head over to the Curtain Call blog for more inspiration and then join in the fun! Thanks for stopping by!



Many Times, Many Ways ~ The Card Concept

Peace and Joy ~ PTI Create Along with Us


Hey friends!  I'm enjoying our long weekend with some inky time in the studio.  It's PTI release week so we get to CASE a project that's inspired us for the Create Along with Us challenge.  There were so many I loved, but decided to create a card inspired by Melissa's gorgeous masterpiece...

 ...don't be surprised if this snowflake set winds up in my shopping cart on the 15th! HA!  I used the sets and dies I had already.  Thanks for stopping by!

I Love Dawn Blog Hop!


It's no secret here on my blog that I am a HUGE fan of Dawn McVey and have been so even before her PTI days.  Her talent and beautiful spirit are captivating and she shines inside and out.  I am happy to join in this PTI Blog Hop to help support her recovery from her recent transplant surgery.  So far everything has been positive and with our prayers and cards (!) she will continue to improve each day. 

 It was kind of hard starting this card.  I sometimes don't do well trying to make the perfect card...so I made a list! HA!  This card must have: bright colours, inspirational sentiment, some stamps Dawn created, and bling (that's for me!).  I think I got it all in.  There were so many scripture stamps I wanted to use but settled on the one above and this one for inside the card.  Sometimes you just have to make a decision and go with it!

 Many of you may also have seen these photos of me and Dawn in 2011 as I post them often!  I think it is most appropriate to post them again.  Here's wishing Dawn a speedy recovery and sending her all my love and prayers :)

All Your Wishes ~ Viva La Verve Friday!


 Happy Friday!!  I must say (AGAIN!) how excited I am that Julee has brought back the Viva La Verve Friday sketch challenge.  I just love her layered sketches and have been having a great time using some of my lovely fall patterned papers.  This particular card is hopefully on my sister's mantle by now...it was her birthday last Monday :)  Want to play along for the chance to win a Verve GC?  Head over to the Viva La Verve blog for all the details!  Hope your weekend has a great start!

Merry Christmas ~ The Card Concept


Hello everyone! Today starts a new challenge over at The Card Concept challenge blog based on the picture below...

My clean and layered card is totally inspired by the traditional colours and poinsettias in the photo.  However, my second card is inspired by the patterned plates...then I went all girlie with a scarlett and rose poinsettia with SB sleeve leaves :)
