A Year of Joy ~ The Card Concept

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


I took the inspiration photo quite literally to create my clean and layered card.  I have these sweet little kraft envelopes that I hadn't used in eons so it was great to pull them out and create a sweet birthday card.  I hope you'll head over to The Card Concept blog to see all the different interpretations from the Design Team then join in the fun!  Have a great day!

I'll Go Laughing ~ 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…


Ah, my literary heart sure does love this stack of books...it reminds me of the one starting on my night table, waiting for Christmas Break :)  I made a bookmark using a quote from Moby Dick that can be removed and used! Head over to the Curtain Call blog for more inspiration and then join in the fun! Thanks for stopping by! 


Let Every Heart ~ Viva La Verve


Happy Friday and happy December, friends!  Report cards are done so it's time to get in the Christmas spirit and start planning for the 25th!  Julee is inspiring us with some adorable new digis and this fabulous Viva La Verve sketch.  I cannot get enough of this poinsettia!  I coloured it with ink smooshed on an acrylic block and a slightly wet paint brush.  Want to play along?  Head over to the Viva La Verve Blog and join the fun!  Have a great weekend!

Celebrating Your Birthday ~ PTI Blog Hop


Hello friends!  It's been quiet around the blog as I finish up report cards and get back into the studio!  Of course, I had to take time to play along with the PTI Blog Hop...I just can't stop staring at this inspiration photo!  The problem with such a gorgeous image is that there is always TOO much inspiration.  I had 2 different cards on the go, but they just weren't coming together so I put my favourite elements together and came up with this one.  Always happy to sneak in some (Canadian) maple leaves :)  



Thanks for stopping by!  I can't wait to see all your creations!

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 :)

In Your Heart



 Hello friends!  I was happy to spend a little inky time this weekend after watching Melissa's Make it Monday video.  Oh, I just adore her shabby chic style.  So I channeled my inner Melissa and made this darling wreath card. I don't have that PTI wreath die so I die cut a bunch of leaf branches out of SB sleeves and layered them together!  I thought it only fitting to use her Choose Joy set for the sentiment :)  Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful Kindness ~ 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…



Oh, this is me Saturday mornings...I let myself stay in bed an extra hour, quite often just snuggling with my warm blankets.  I was inspired by the grey neutrals and little pop of burnt mustard which translated to flowers and a plaid background.  Head over to the Curtain Call blog for more inspiration and then join in the fun! Thanks for stopping by!
