All you need is....

Since we are almost midway through January already (can you  believe it?)  I thought I might start to make some Valentine Cards.  Here is my first attempt,  I wanted to keep it somewhat CAS so I decied to just emboss the background for this one. 

I used the Blossom folder by Crafts-Too and a dollar bin stamp.  At the Cutting Garden crop night I got to use some new dies that are truly to "Die For" LOL   This one is by Memory Box but actually cannot remember the name.  There were so many beautiful flourishes that I had not laid eyes on before and I can't wait until the next crop night!

Hope to make lots more Valentine Card for my friends and co-workers so back to it.  Hope you can come back and visit again.

Take care,

Hi there,

Lately, I have been entering a few challenges and in the interest of saving some time here is a link to my gallery on SplitCoastStampers

My Gallery

The challenges have been a lot of fun.  If you have a moment to pop by my gallery that would be great.  You can click on the key word in any card to see the other entries for the challenge (just in case you didn't know)... I am still learning with all of this but its a lot of fun.

Thanks for stoppin by!

Pretty in Purples...

I wa feeling a bit violet today and glancing through some of my paper I spied these lovely spring colors.  Considering it was such a rainy dreary day here in Nova Scotia I thought this might lift my spirits.  These cards were pretty simple to put together.  I used paper from S.E.I Couture which has some lovely pastel colours to work with.  One of the stamps I used was from Heartfelt Creations called Classic Message and the other was just an Inkadoo stamp I found in the dollar bin that I thought was really nice and one I could use a lot.

Here is another view of one of the cards.

Oh, I also used the deco fan punch from Martha Stewart which is one of my favorites.

For this card I used my double arch punch around the page from Martha Stewart.  I am really happy with the way these turned out.

Thanks for visiting.  Until next time!
It is hard to believe the holidays are done and we will be resuming a normal routine tomorrow!  Oh well, all good things must come to an end I guess!

Here is my first ever entry to the SCS Weekly I Spy Challenge.  I was a bit nervous submitting after seeing all of the lovely entries but decided to give it a go anyway.  I thought that with all good friends a nice bottle of wine is very fitting.  Here is my attempt at some "friend" wine tags.  Thanks to my brother-in-law Tony for suppling me with the template
 Thank You

Thanks for popping by.  Have a great evening.

With Sympathy Cards

Hello again,

This is the first time I have made this type of card and I think they turned out very nice.  I used some really nice paper I found by one of my most fast becoming favorite supplier DCWV called The Natural Stack.  I fell in love with the neutral palette of this paper… for some strange reason I find it very “calming.”  The sentiment stamp I used was just a cheapie Kaisercraft stamp I picked up in the $1.50 bin.  I also heat embossed a floral flourish as a backdrop for a few prima flowers.  I think I have the same feddish as my sister Lisa for the prima flowers J LOL… I just need to learn to do them justice! 

Thanks for checking in.  I really appreciate you taking time out of your day to visit!

Happy New Year and wishing all the best for 2012!

New addition to my crafting studio

Happy New Years Eve everyone,

I have been busy over the holidays so I have not done any blogging in a while.  My husband got me some wall art for Christmas.  What do you think?

Stay tuned for some more posts today.

Hoping that everyone has a safe and Happy New Years!
