A Merry Christmas Shimmer~

These papers are so pretty, the red designer sheet is flocked in white...just gorgeous! I used a cardstock sticker from the simply scrappin kit Christmas Jingle and covered the sentiment oval with a little dab of shimmer that goes a long way. It is so much fun to use, paired with taffeta ribbon it makes a stunning combo.

Thank you for visiting and have a great weekend!

My take on Zindorf Courage~

I loved this set when I first spied it in the catalogue along with its matching jumbo wheel, however it took me at least two months til I used it. Feeling uninspired, I looked up SCS and found this tutorial by Michele Zindorf...Wow, her works of art are amazing!
I proceeded to work on my card following her instructions and managed to create an "almost Zindorf". I was quite pleased with myself, although I think I need more practice with the old brayer :)
Thank you for looking!

Fruitcake and Hollies....

These little guys are so adorable with their festive hat and gift~but like I always say, only in animation! I do not care for mice IRL...I happened upon a store that was doing a card swap with "animal christmas" as a theme, well, the rest if history because I made it my mission to make these cards. lol

Decided I love my paper stash and cardmaking goodies again...didn't touch it for sooo long I was starting to wonder if I might ever get back to it again. Gasp...but here I am. Enjoy!!!

Motivet Blog Candy....

These adorable stamps are to be had!! I was hooked when I sat through a colouring session using Dexter making a snowman at the Heirloom Stamp show in York...they are so cute! We all made an adorable card that looked "just like Stephanie's" under careful instruction of her husband and here is the stunning result!! ...ta-da.......
Not only were these cute, the company is located in Canada...all the more reason to show my love and support to "my home and native land..."

Take a peek at all the other beautiful cards on their blog!

Blogger MIA

Hello to all my blogger friends! I still exist in the paper crafting world! Although I must say that I have not had too much time with scrapping creativity! With what I did get are some stolen moments! :)

This was made with a set from Sweet&Sassy stamps combined with words from CTMH. The image coloured with Copic markers, a new favourite.

And finally...

This card was made with SU's Music expressions! I fell in love with it when it came out in our catalogue and finally got to use it!

All cards made with SU cardstock, designer papers from various companies, Copics, nestabilities, Cuttlebug folders, ribbons, brads and pearls.

I want to hold your hand...

Another cute image from my friend Brandi! She stamped all these Elzybels and they have been the most fun to colour and put together. This one is perfect for Valentine's, although I would be quick to say I didn't colour it in the traditional reds/pinks because I wanted to use my limited supply of copics...silly, I know!

Materials: Elzybel, Basic Gray lilykate, Night of Navy, Sage Shadow, Whisper White CS, MS heart punch, Michaels ribbon.

Thanks for looking! Have a great weekend!

Elzybell birdie~

These are adorable! I have had the most fun colouring them in. I kept this one simple and sweet, pulled out a few snowflake die cuts from my stash and combined it with the dotted paper(scenic route?)Of course I had to add something, so these mini pearls came in handy! Love how it turned out!

Love this little skunk...he is just too sweet! I have been making thank you cards!

This is one of my favourite images from Rubber Romance! Maybe because it is one of the two I own? haha. Love colouring this gal with all her chocolates. Again, I delved into my scrap pack and pulled some yummy colours together, coupled with SU punches and of course the ever ready MS border punch! of course, she needed some bling so I added a few glitter hearts :)

Love these little Elzybells, my friend Brandi gave me some images to colour while I was recovering the last few weeks. This one is especially adorable and the sentiment is equally cute!

I used Kraft CS and combined it with paperscraps that matched my colouring...did I mention, I bought a *few copics? I have been having fun colouring in images! It use to be that the less colouring, the better! I think it is funny how we all do that...thanks for looking!

So Thankful for you!

A bit late in kicking off the New Year...but here we go!!! Let me begin by wishing you all a Happy New Year! I'm still here even if I am lurking on my own blogspot, I have not been creating anything the last few weeks. The holidays came and went, albeit a wonderful time of year for our family! Our Marine was home and we enjoyed spending alot of time with him...took lots of pictures, ate lots of great food, enjoyed friends' company!

I needed some quick and cute Thank you, I made these 3x3's very quickly, just the right size I needed. I had surgery early in the month and one of my good friends organized meals for our family, so I've been sampling some excellent cuisine from friends and family! How fun...I guess I could call it a perk to having surgery, but if I'm not careful I might have to reset my goals at WeightWatchers! yikes!!

Materials used: SU! Window dressing, GinaK my cuppa joe, Sugared Basic Grey, Naturals Vanilla, Pretty in Pink CS, May Arts Ribbon, MS edge punch, copics (gasp),stickles.
Thanks for stopping by!
