Shabby Tea Room Buttons and Bows Challenge

Here's my card for the Shabby Tea Room Week #50 challenge. I used PTI Fine Linen cs and pp (Distressed Dots). Lace ribbon is from my stash. The butterfly is Hero Arts coloured with Copics and the Sentiment is from PTI delightful Dahlia.

Thanks for stopping by!

Embellish Challenge with Birds

I spent my Sunday morning in the craft room making challenge cards. This was one of them. It's been forever since I've done an Embellish challenge. The bird/cage is from the Cricut Songbird cart, the pp is SU (I think), ribbon is from my stash, sentiment is Technique Tuesday AE, and the little rhinestones are Martha.

Doesn't it look cute against my new delphite Pyrex??

Thanks for peeking.

Happy Birthday

I used this Distressed Dots paper the other day for a card and realized how much I LOVE this paper!! So, naturally, I had to make another card and one can never have too many HB cards on hand, right?

Canvas Heart

Just popping in to share a little project I made this weekend. I had bought the AC Dear Lizzy ribbon a while ago intending to use for Valentines Day and forgot all about it. I used tea to dye the canvas.

Thanks for peekin.

Splitcoast Featured Stamper (My pal Char!) Case Card


My amazing and uber talented friend Charlene was the featured Guest Stamper on Splitcoast this week. Of course I had to play along. I cased this absolutely fantastic card of hers.

Pretty much a blatant copy, but hey the challenge allowed it. Who am I kidding, I am always copying this lady. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right??!!

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Hearts Day!

Happy V-Day!

Thought I should post this card I made my husband before the holiday had passed. Please forgive the poor photo  - I missed the daylight today.

I hope anyone visiting has/had an awesome Valentines Day, if you're into that sort of thing. Any day that involves chocolate and reminds us to love on eachother is a good holiday in my mind!

Thanks for peeking!

I was going thru some photos and realized I never shared this card. I bought a friend & I tickets to the Wizard of Oz musical for Christmas and tucked them into this Dorothy inspired card.

Hope you are having a great week!

LSC #128...Sort Of

Well Hello!

It's been so long since I have blogged...or crafted. Just got busy with other things for a bit like Christmas, organizing the house (including over hauling my craft room), getting Jake thru exams, going to Mexico on vacation. It only took a month or so to settle into the New Year but I finally have and FINALLY spent some time in my craft room last night. It was so fun!

When I saw this week's Loonie Stampers Challenge I knew I wanted to play along. LOVE the colours and the "retro" twist. I love retro! I have over 40 pieces of vintage Pyrex, one of which is in the picture above. I also love the 70s coloured Tupperware when I can find it.

Unfortunately, when I went to make my card the brown just wasn't working so I left it out. The oven image on my card is from the "From my Kitchen" cartridge and the stamps are from AC "Washer" set.

In the right kitchen, I think retro appliances would be so fun. I love the bright colours and unique designs. If you like this sort of stuff too check out this link for some great eye candy.

Thanks for peeking and thanks Loonie girls for getting me back into my craft room after a too-long hiatus.
