It's my cousins birthday this weekend and I've made her this card. The red paper I downloaded from I saw recently on video from heroarts I believe, to score the paper, fold along the score, sand it and add color to it.

It was a beautiful day here today. Nice and sunny. I worked till early afternoon then we all went into town to buy some flowers for our planters.

Around supper it started raining. Hoping for a good day tomorrow. Randy has a car race and me and kids have Heritage Day at the Cemetary.

Have a great weekend :)

Rainy and Sick

Yesterday was track and field at my daughters school. I go and volunteer for the day. Its great to see how all the kids do. I was timing races. There are some fast kids there.
Today my son was sick, so I had to call in to work. It was a rainy day. I ended up with a headach in the afternoon, and rest on the couch with Grant all afternoon watching movies.
This is a cute little thank you card I made up. Actually I saw it in a Stampin' Up Idea Book.
I was surfing for some ideas for wedding cards this morning. That is my next project. We have a wedding in July to go to in England, and I have had a couple of requests for them as well.
Have a great evening, talk soon =)

crap happens

Here is another get well card I've done. This one didn't turn out as good as I'd hoped, I think I have to fix the strings on the broken balloons hanging down. It just doesn't look right.

I was looking for a birthday card for my cousin. Which will be late. I discovered I don't have many birthday cards. Then when I did find one I liked for her there was no verse in it. Good thing I've printed extra verses to have on hand.

I'm off to work soon. After a quick stop at walmart. Grant needs a smaller dump truck to take to school for the sand box. All he has is small dinky car size or his big Tonka. So this morning he packing off with his big one in a Metro shopping bag.

Have a great day =)

Have a happy day;)

Black and White

The long weekend is over. I've got everyone off the school and work, and have five minutes to myself before I have to head out.
I got the idea for this card from a video I watched on using the cuddlebug to emboss. I have always cut out with it. Here I embossed the frame on and embossed flowers into the middle. I thought the black and white would look nice, and it just needed a touch of color on the flowers.
Have a great day=)

Pyramid cards

Well our Sunday has turned out not bad so far. At least the sun is shining. The wind is quite cool though. But some yard work will get done today.
So far this morning it has been tea and playing nintendo ds with Grant. Cars is what he is stuck on right now. And mom gets to do the ones Grant can't get. We have almost open all the games a couple of times but someone keeps hitting the dumpster and erasing everything. Happy gameing kids.
These cards look better in person than in a picture. They are pyramid. So eack layer of the picture is raised a little.
Happy Sunday to you;)

Long weekend

Once again the weekend is here and its raining. All day Saturday, although I worked all day so it really didn't matter to me. But Randy wanted to do some tree trimming from the winter damage, he had to wait till late afternoon when it cleared.
Here is another baby card and the last one I have made. I like the cute carrage. I colored it with marker.
Have a happy evening.

Little hands

We had thunder storms this morning, with lots of rain. The ground was so wet the dog wouldn't go out this morning. I had to growl at her, then she ran straight to the cover of the bush and straight back to the house.
Here is another baby card I made. I love the little hands.
Have a great day through all the grey rain.

Cold season

I thanked my son today for sharing his cold with me. If the kids get sick I usually get it too. The soar throat, runny nose, ( I can't believe your nose can run so much), runny eyes, and sooo tired.

Here is a card to match the last one. One for a girl and one for a boy. The fox I stamped with the glue pad and flocked it. So he is fuzzy.

Keep smiling and I'll talk to you later.

Happy day :0)

Baby cards

This weekend was really nice. Although it rained all day Saturday. I was home with the family. I did some card making. After supper we went across the road to visit the neibours. It was a very nice evening. They have a son in collage who is home for the summer, and a daughter in high school. Their two took our two downstairs, and that was pretty much the last time we saw them till just after 11 when they wanted to go home. They had such a good time. Although the 188 summersalts Sam did made her neck hurt. And the attatude from a 10 yr old when she doesn't get her sleep. Sunday was a little touchy. But mothers day was nice. Subs for dinner so I didn't have to cook. Not much yard work done, it was quite cool out. Randy did polish the rims on the tires of both cars.
Last week I was asked for a baby card. I only had a couple made up so what a good excuse to make a card. I need more of a variety. This week I have several baby cards to show.
I stamped the bird stamp with my glue pad then put yellow flock on, to add a bit of color to the bird I put a bit of stickles on the flower.
Hope everyone had a great Mother's Day
Happy Monday

Busy day

Its Saturday just another day of the week for me. I was up and in to clean the store this morning. Stopped at the craft store to check out their sale for Card Making day. Bought the nassecities today(glue dots, tape runner, envelopes) and they got in some decoupage sheets that look just beautiful. I'm going to try a couple of them. I'm home again to rest my arm a bit, do some card making, clean up after the kids(a neverending job). Make super and off to work at supper time. But tomorrow is a day at home, just me and the kids. Hubby is off to a RC car race.
This stamp is from Stampin' Up. I even stamped one of the flowers on the button and embossed it in clear.
Have a good day :0)

1st birthday

This card I made for a co-worker of Randy's from the Ottawa office. Her little guy is turning one very soon.
This is the card I came up with for him. I used the glue pad to stamp the top of the cupcake and the candle, and then added glitter to it.
Have a happy birthday Eric;)
