Owl be thinking of You

Phew!! It’s friday.  It was a tough week.  My MIL started chemo and it really got me down thinking about it.  We are so far away (11 hours) and we know it’s going to get tough as she gets weaker.  My husband will probably have to fly down there soon, and since the kids are in school I’ll have to stay.  I want to be there too, but it’s not very practical, especially when we are not sure how often we may be needed to go.   We plan on going as a family for the March break.  She will be in her 3rd round of chemo by then.  I worry about everything.   How she is doing, how my boys will take it (it’s terminal cancer), how my husband is holding up, how the rest of his family is dealing with it all, and of course how I feel about it too, as I love her, and hate that this is happening. Uugh!     Then there was the earthquake in Haiti; how horrifying!    My own problems, …

A Fall Feeling

Hello!! I hope everyone had a great weekend! Yesterday was a beautiful warm sunny day, so we decided to take a drive out to Quinn Farm for some apple picking.  We do this every Fall with the boys and we always have a great time.  We picked up some farm fresh baked apple crumble and some apple muffins too. YUMMY!!  I will be making some of my own apple crumbles soon too, with this huge bag of apples that we picked!  We were able to pick from both Cortland and Macintosh apples.  They are a little on the small side this year, but delicious nevertheless! We had a really nice day! Below  is a Fall card that I made on Friday for the Limited Supply Challenge on Splitcoaststampers. We were to use “halloween” colors but not necessarily a Halloween card. I stamped the Inkadinkado leaves in Real Rust and Memento Rich Cocoa inks on Kraft card stock.   The paper on the lower half is Bo Bunny Fall Harvest mini dots.  I added an edge of …

TAGS

Tags are  so fun and quick to make, and this week Crafty Creations is challenging us to make some! I stamped the birds from Butterflies and Birds clear stamp set by Inkadinkado in Broken china ink. The tags are punched from vanilla card stock and the edges are inked with Weathered Wood ink (Tim Holtz distress inks).   They are tied with Basic Grey taffeta ribbon, and I’ve added a tiny crystal on each. This is a large style tag measuring 3.5″ x 2.5″.   The dp is Razzleberry Lemonade (Stampin’ UP! ), and the base is Bermuda bay card stock.  I used the Martha Stewart daisy punch to cut the corners and punched the dragonfly. Have a look at the other DT members beautiful tag creations over at Crafty Creations Challenges!! You won’t be disappointed, they absolutely amaze me with they’re talent!! I hope you’ll be inspired to create a few tags of your own…they are great to have on hand for gifts or to add to a project. Thanks for stopping by and have a …

Butterfly Dreams

Hello!!   We are officially on vacation, but we had to postpone our overnight trip to Grandby zoo as thunder showers are headed our way.  The way my head is pounding from the pressure and humidity, it is coming soon!  So, whatever we decide to do with the boys tomorrow it will have to be indoors…maybe the science centre. I have a quick card to share with you tonight; I was inspired by this vase design http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/271229.htm for the inspiration challenge this week at SCS. The butterfly is stamped and colored with copics, and dipped in dazzling diamonds glitter. It’s popped up on dimensional foam tape. The sentiment is one of my favorites from Cornish Heritage Farms. Thanks for stopping by!   Chat with you again soon!!

Featured Froggy

Hi everyone, did you see that StampingQueenJar was the featured stamper on SCS today? I chose to case this sweet card here.  I have admired her cards for a long time, so I was happy to see her chosen! She is so deserving of this! I changed the layout a little, some layers and the stamp, and added some buttons, and the flower.   Isn’t this frog the cutest?  My SCS Twisted Sistah, Darla Ryan sent this image to me as part of a birthday RAK! I am exhausted after all my travels of late, I just got home from Toronto today after a two day visit with my friends. They recently had a baby, so I’ve been trying to go see them and this was the only weekend that worked out for us.  So off we went, on a 6 hour car drive, after having been away for a week, and only home for two days!    I am going straight to bed and I may not get up ’till noon!   (I wish) Have a great …

Blue Butterfly

The featured stamper on SCS this week is Vicky Gould!! Yeah! She is a fabulous stamper, and I have admired her work for some time, so I enjoyed going through her gallery!   I chose her stunning blue and gold embossed card to case.   I was inspired by the embossing so I decided to use my stained glass backgrounder from Cornish Heritage Farms for the main panel.  I used copper embossing powder on Versamark ink.   The corners are cut from the same piece of embossing (a cut off scrap).  The butterfly(Inkadinkado Elizabeth Brownd)  is also embossed in copper, as is the flourish by Technique Tuesday on the Pacific Point card stock.   I added a coppery ribbon that I picked up at Flourishes. Well I’m off to work on another project, i have been feeling so inspired lately I figure I better get going while the going is good! Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a creative day!! Please, don’t forget to get your vote in my poll (top right)!  Thanks! This post would be empty …
