Let it Snow

Oh I hope by posting this I am not going to bring on any of the white stuff! It is still warm and sunny here...the summer we never had lol!

I thought I would play along with Simon Says Wednesday challenge "Christmas" this week.

I love how the paste snow looks so pretty against the inked up sky.

thanks for stopping by!

From the Heart

I needed another thank you card so I spent some time at my craft table this weekend. I used my Stampendous Ranunculus stamp set so decided to link up with Simon Says Wednesday challenge featuring their products!

Have a great week!

Well the hot and summery weather has turned cool so my thoughts go to Christmas crafting! I decided to link up with Simon Says Wednesday challenge...anything goes

This has to be my favourite Christmas stamp set, a Simon collaboration with Clearly Besotted. I borrowed it from a friend. I wish it was still available! I love how you get a different effect every time with distress markers on watercolour paper. Very cool. Some snowy paste dots really set the scene.

thanks for dropping by!

You're the best!

I have been keeping to my promise to sit at my craft table at least once a week. I needed a thank you card so here is what I came up with...

I popped up a little jar under Hero Art's gorgeous layered bouquet. I embossed the MME jar on vellum. Love how that looks! I also popped up the entire white panel and the little tag. It says "you're the best" but since it is in very pale blue ink, I know it is hard to see.

I linked up with Simon Says Wednesday challenge...Pop It Up.  

thanks for stopping by!

Just Saying Thanks

Helllloooooo...I have been a bad blogger lately! With the "back to school" routine starting this month, I thought I would try to get back to my craft table more regularly.

Here's a little thank you card I made.

I coloured up some WPlus9 flowers with my Peerless watercolours. I love how the Simon Says banner really ties everything together.

I linked up with Simon's Wednesday challenge...clean and simple...just my style!

thanks for stopping by!

Happy Mother's Day

I know Mother's Day has been and gone (though really every day is a day to honour our mother!), I thought I would post the card I made for my mother in law. 

I used my Hero Arts layering orchid set. Man that set just stamps like butter! I love how it turned out! 

I linked up with Simon's Wednesday challenge...anything goes.

Happy Monday!
