Good Things

What a superb weekend!  Two beautiful spring days, first bbq of the season, we went on our first Rogaine (kind of like orienteering) and I even managed to fit in some crafting *happy grin*.  Good things are definitely on their way! I started with the layout of Joan Bardee’s card at Muse, and I wanted…

Shades of Got This

  This card was kind of an extra.  I was looking through my stash of SU! Project Life cards for a completely different project and came across these sunnies.  Who can resist the classic combination of purple and yellow?  Especially when there happens to be a matching purple and yellow paper in your stash that covers…

Amazing Blue

  Quick post tonight, playing with Addicted to CAS and CAS(e) this Sketch – such fun! I used SU! Whisper White for the card base, as well as the sentiment (from Avery Elle) and scribble die cuts.  My ink blending (which hasn’t come through my attempts to lighten up the photo very famously – gosh darn…

Here Comes The Sun

  Time for a bit of Color Throwdown – yellow, navy and white: woohoo!  I definitely tend to mix and match my supplies; there is a bit of everything in here!  Guess that’s what happens when you don’t have a plan. I started with a cute wee SU! Project Life card in Crushed Curry that I…

Happy Mail

  Talk about a slow start to Spring!  This weekend was cold, and rainy, and it tried to snow so many times…  A good weekend for indoor activities (like crafting heh, heh!!)  Although not so good for the photo-taking 🙁 I wanted to play with the current cue at CASology:  WRITE.  After a bit of…

Grateful Feathers

  The last day of Winter – woohoo!!  I know that the real start of Spring is the solstice, but the only way I remember from year to year is because Spring and September both start with the same letter!  It does make for some oddities though, particularly when a color challenge requires the use of…

Oh, Giraffe!

I just love the color combo for this week’s Color Throwdown, pink and teal together are one of my absolute favourites.   I’ve been meaning to ink up the sweet giraffes from WPlus9’s Party Animal set since they arrived several weeks ago, and just haven’t had quite the right inspiration – until now!   I…

The Power of Two

  Playing along with Casology today, and having a bit of a Stampin Up! moment.  Started with a Crumb Cake base, and grunged it up a teensy bit with Soft Suede ink and the Gorgeous Grunge inksplots and lines, and the postmark from Butterfly Basics.  Torn vellum underneath a piece of Whisper White stamped with Hardwood using Soft…

Floral thoughts

   Managed to steal a bit of Sunday afternoon crafting time, what a lovely way to spend a beautiful winters day!  Some color inspiration (thanks CTD), a gorgeous wildflower, some adult coloring time (nothing if not trendy, me) and of course some obligatory bling – fabulousity. I didn’t have any paper that caught my fancy,…
