Vintage Hockey Thanks

Well hockey season is over and Carter already had his wind up. Kalan's is this weekend. I made just a simple thanks for the coaches and I used another vintage image of a children's pick up game on the pond with an adorable spectator... :)

Thanks for coming by and as always I would love any feedback! See you all soon!

Getting ready for Easter

I just loved this image I found while I searched for some vintage items. I decided to use them for my Easter cards this year. I am really happy with how they turned out.

Thanks for popping by. I am sorry for the sporadic posting, I have so much going on right now I can't begin to say. I am hoping to get a post up at least once a week though. Sorry DIVAS!

Another SS project

This is the third project I have done for our Spring SS swap. I almost have my package all assembled tp send. I do still want to pick up a couple treats also. I will finish posting the projects this weekend. This challenge was to pake a project using a die or paper piecing. I did use dome punches on the front and some pre die cut border edge. The inside is decorated with a top note die cut. I was actually really pleased with how this card turned out. I love flopsy and never seem to use him near enough!

Thanks so much for popping over. I would love any feedback you have for me! See you soon!

I recently joined an anything but a card easter swap over at split coast stampers. My DD and I both took a spot and these will be on their way shortly! I made the notebooks and she made the Easter egg magnets... Enjoy!

Thanks for popping by and as always I would love to know what you think!

Welcome Baby

This is a card I made for VSN over at Splitcoast stampers. It was a couple weekends ago and my DD and I did 2 challenges on the Friday night. The challenge was to use a bird on your card. I pulled out a set I had gotten awhile back and used the sweet stork on the postage tag. I just love the tiny baby pastel button brads too and use them when I can. I definitely think it adds to it. We have a couple of babies due at work this year so having the card will come in handy for sure!
Thanks for popping in. I have been working on getting a new to me vehicle the past few weeks. I think I have decided on a Ford Escape 2007. Anyone who has one I would love feedback...
Take care!

Another SS Project

Well this project challenge was just to make a thank you card using spring colors. I love fun spring colors and the colors on this DP jumped out at me. I also added a stamping bella image I received through wish RAK over at Splitcoast Stampers a while back. I still am not convinced that spring will EVER arrive here, but I remain hopeful at least. I can't wait until I can wake up to a morning warmer than -20 or colder. It has been the routine the past few weeks. (sighs...)
Anyways, I love how the layered flowers added a nice touch to this card. I managed to find a focal one that had all the colors to match the DP. My thank you sentiment is on the inside.

Thanks for coming by! I am going to plan on some more stamping this weekend and maybe wading through some of my supplies to see if I have any to downsize. Take care and see you soon!

Where does the time go?

Wow! I feel like I just posted and then life gets busy and before I know it I have lost a week or even 2! What is going on? Well, besides the fact that we are STILL waiting to get out of a deep freeze here (-28 with the wind chill and coldest start to March in 90 years.... ugh!!) I have been busy taking care of several personal things. BUT I have been working on some stuff and I am going to share with you now! This is a card I made for the vintage card challenge for my SS group. I kinda feel like I cheated a bit because the image was printed, but I think it is pretty cute. I dressed it up with some DP and flowers and added the St paddys day greeting. You can't tell but I sprayed the whole thing with glimmer mist in gold and the overall effect is pretty.

Thanks so much for coming by! I am glad you took the time to visit and would love to know any feedback you have for me! Take care!
