April Rewind


Hi friends!  With my last paper in the works, unexpected house guests, and hosting Easter dinner, it was a busy long weekend.  I managed to get some cards made for the end of this week, but didn’t want to get the blog all dusty with no use! So here’s another card from last April!  It was based on a Dawn McVey Make it Monday technique of layering stamp images.  I really love this one…especially the No. 29 for the birthday year! Wink, wink!  Hope your week is going well…I’ll have lots of cards on the weekend for you!  Hugs!

Let’s Celebrate ~ Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge


We have a fantastic new sponsor, Reverse Confetti, for the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Confetti Crush!  The LEAD of this challenge will receive a gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store!


I chose to take the challenge literally and create a fun shaker card by sewing an acetate sheet onto embossed cardstock.  I only sewed 3 sides first to make a pocket so I could pour in some colourful confetti before sewing the last side up.  I was inspired by this PIN and adorable card.

After that I used the Reverse Confetti Petals ‘n Posies set and matching dies to decorate the rest of the card.  The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted’s Many Messages and is stamped on a vellum banner with Stazon.

The Curtain Call is over the moon that the owner of Reverse Confetti, Jen del Muro, is joining us today for the Confetti Crush challenge.

Let Us Be Grateful


Hi everyone!  Well, one class down and one more to finish up in 2 weeks :)  This is the card I made for our instructor this weekend.  He’s from Spokane and travels up every two weeks to teach us :)  He uses a maple leaf background for his power points in honour of being here in Canada, so I thought it only appropriate that I add maple leaves to his card so he can remember us :)  I hope you have a lovely Sunday…thanks for stopping by :)

Mom, You are so Amazing


Oh, happy Friday friends!  I’m off to one of my last classes tonight and tomorrow!  Then only one more weekend of classes in two weeks.  Summer semester starts in May.  People told me these two years would go by quickly and indeed they are! It’s April now so I’m focusing on Mother’s Day cards as I know my staff will be in need of many.  I’m using the new Viva La Verve sketch.


Head over to the Viva la Verve challenge blog for all the details of how you could win some serious Verve dollars!  That would sure put a “spring” in anyone’s step (pun intended! LOL).  Have a great start to your weekend!


what’s in it?
