Paper Flowers...

Here is a card I made last week. When I saw this DSP pattern from Springtime Vintage I thought it looked like lattice. So I made some paper flowers and voila!

Life has been a little crazy busy lately. I have more cards to share I just need to take some time and get the pictures!! So check back for some cards made with the Sale-a-bration DSP and Stamp sets.

Take care!

P.S. I wanted to mention what I used to make the "frame" is a Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the Big Shot called Framed Tulips. I love this folder!!

A Masculine Birthday Card...

With all the pretty Stampin' Up! products in the Catalogue and the Mini I find it hard to put them down and make a masculine card...but we all have men in our lives that need a nice manly card...they don't quite appreciate flowers made of paper do they! I had a request to make a masculine birthday card by a club member so I pulled out my Mighty Oak stamp from the stamp set Lovely as a Tree. This stamp set is so versatile! My Dad reminds me of a mighty oak...big and strong and always there for me.

Here's my card today...
I will save this card for my Dad's Birthday...although it's not until October.

I am having my club ladies tomorrow night...looking forward to it! They are a great group of ladies!

Happy Stampin'!!

Let it Snow , Let it Snow, Let is Snow!!!

Holy Cow the snow here in Southwestern Ontario is crazy....as with much of North America I think! I just got in from helping my hubby shovel some of that snow....I am gonna hurt for a week! I got a leg cramp just behind my knee while taking off my boot. OUCH that hurts!!

I was a good day for the kids to be off for a PD Day because I wouldn't have taken them out in this anyway! My Mom had to go to a  doctor's appt this morning and since she was already out, she stopped in to get Liam so that he could spend the day with Papa. Summer and I did lots of fun things...she painted, I did the wash and did the dishes and...well, then we baked Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins, and did a puzzle a few times!! Then she read a book with Uncle Cory (my youngest brother who is here visiting) then played Jenga with him too while I got to shovel snow!!

I have am working on a few things right now...I always end up with a few things on the go...now I need to finish them...I am hoping tonight to do some of that. Oh I just remembered I am supposed to go out to a Concert at the Theatre tonight. I gues we'll see if this snow keeps coming.

So I am thinking spring! Here is a card that will have you thinking of the warmer days that are coming....eventually, right? Spring has to come!
This stamp set is called Nature Walk. There are six beautiful images in this set. I have only used two here on this card. The words are form the Fabulous Phrases set. A bunch of individual words...fabu-lous!! I stamped the butterfly image on watercolour paper and used an Aqua Painter to colour in the butterfly...I used Riding Hood Red, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Write Markers.

I am working on a Chore Chart for my kidlets. Oh it is turning out just beautiful!
So I'll share when it's done.

Better go and get dinner started....apparently chicken burgers don't cook themselves...for some reason I thought that they did!

Vintage Birthday Card...

Oh how I love the Springtime Vintage DSP!! Here is another little beauty I made.
I used a few different stamp sets on this card. The flourish is from the Sale-a-bration set Bliss...love it!!
I believe that the sentiments are for the Hostess Level 3 stamp set in the 2010/2011 IBC (Idea Book and Catalogue) called Occasional Quotes.

I am currently working on a few little Thank you gifts...I'll share them soon.
I will be back tomorrow with another card.

The kidlets have a PD Day tomorrow....strange to be right in the middle of the week.

Oh wanna hear one of those "kids say the cutest thing" quotes??? I don't know about cute, more like mortifying!!!
Summer and I were out shopping for new alarm clocks on Saturday. There was an older woman doing the same. I was looking for a dual alarm and Summer was looking for a PINK one (that's my girl!) anywhoo, Summer says "Look Mommy, that lady has a big BOOTY. I turn around and see what she is pointing. Then the lady, also shopping for an alarm, turns arounds and smiles...I smile back.............then the lit turns on in my head and I say "Oh no, she was looking at this box on this shelve behind us at this Rocker Chic"........duh, as I stammer....I am sure she believes me. Summer was standing right in front of the box therefore this women could not see the box. OhMissGosh!, as Summer would say! I was just a little embarassed...not so much that Summer had said what she said, cause kids are honest and true, and cute and FORGIVABLE but because I said
"Yes honey, she sure does!"

Well I hope you liked that one...
Have a great night!
