Gosh it feels like forever since I've posted. Things have been super busy around here but that's summer right? 
We are having such fabulous weather this year. It's hard to stay inside.

Once fall comes winter is right behind and that's when I spend most of my time indoors stamping ;)

Today is Chloe's 15th birthday and we are thinking of heading out to the parks to enjoy the sunshine while hanging out together!

Here is a card I created a few months ago that I found had not been posted here. It was from the Deconstructed Sketch #150 in early May.

Here is a card I created for the MFT sketch #185 a couple of weeks ago.

Happy Looks Good On You...SMILE

Hello :)

Happy weekend! 
Not so much for me. We have inventory at work on Monday and still so much to do :(
Hope you are able to enjoy the weekend though!

This was a card I created a couple of weekends ago for the Featured Stamper Challenge #387 on SCS.

A Rainbow Is A Promise

Happy Tuesday!!

I haven't stamped in ages or at least it feels that way. Work really has been getting in the way lately. Bummer.
Maybe tonight or tomorrow I'll sneak into my craft room.

I created the card below using the Freshly Made Sketch.
I used a variety of cardstock scraps and dies to create this fun card!

Have a Lovely Birthday

Hello :)

I hope this summer finds you enjoying beautiful weather!
We've been very lucky here with blue skies and sunshine lately. 
The rain a few weeks ago has brought a millions of mosquitoes though :(
Oh well! LOL!

Last week I created this birthday card below using the MFT sketch and also the Paper Players tic tac toe challenge.
On Saturday I found out my card was chosen as the Queen of Clean by Sandy at the Paper Players!

Family Photos

Happy Friday!

Happy 4th of July to all of my American friends!
Hope you have a wonderful day spending it with your family.

Speaking of family....

I wanted to share a couple of photos from our family photo shoot outdoors a couple of days a go.
One of my friends took all of our photos and is in the process of editing but he's shared a few with us so far.
After having pictures taken outdoors we will NEVER do those boring indoor ones ever again....haha!
We went to 4 different locations to get all of our fun!

I love all of them but the last one is my favourite so far. Lethbridge is a very windy city and for about one minute it died down and we weren't swatting our hair out of our faces ;)

You Are My Favorite Reason to SMILE

Hello :)

Today we celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary.
It hasn't always been easy but it's always been worth it!

Later today we are heading outdoors for a family photo shoot! Can't wait!

Happy Anniversary Brian!
Love you!

Last night I had a little bit of trouble sleeping because I'd slept during the day trying to fight off a migraine.
What better way to pass the time then stamping!

I had created this watercolour background using some distress inks, watercolour paper and my Mr. Mister on the craft mat.
So I decided to ink up this little cutie from MFT in the same colours.
Pretty quick and simple card!

Cheer Up!

Hello :)

Earlier this week I worked a late shift a work which meant I had some crafty time in the morning. When I stamp before going to work I feel energized! Not sure why but it's always fun!

This card used the SCS colour challenge and the Paper Players Sketch.
I inked up this little PI cutie and coloured with some copic markers. A little stitching to the center panel for interest and it's complete!

Birthdays Are The Best

I'm working a late shift today. Sort of strange for a Tuesday but it does give me the ability to get crafty in the morning :)

Today the Colour Challenge 484 on SCS was Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Cherry Cobbler. The dessert option was a 4th colour and I chose Old Olive.

It's a Good Day to Be Happy

The sun is shining AGAIN today!
We've had so much rain as of late and on flood watch that it's nice to see things finally turn around.
Especially now that summer has officially arrived! Yippee!

This week when the MFT posted the sketch below I almost went with a sentiment or floral die BUT decided to play around a bit with my copics ;)
The sweet PI is Wish You Were Here and the sentiment comes from the Sunflower Sweetheart set.

I am SO looking forward to tomorrow.
