Someone So Special


Happy Friday everyone!  I can’t tell you how wonderful it felt to be in the studio this week playing with paper and ink again.  Today’s card uses the new Viva La Verve Sketch.  Sadly, it is a sympathy card for a colleague whose mom passed away this month.  I love Verve’s Forever in our Hearts set for sympathy cards. The sentiments are sweet and simple, perfect for the difficult time around losing a loved one. 

Head over to the Viva La Verve blog for more samples and all the details on how you could win some big Verve bucks this month!  Have a great day!



stamps: Forever in our Hearts, Be Blessed (Verve)

dies: Petal Points Die Set (Verve)

accessories: Shine Bright Sequin Mix

Celebrating with You ~ Papertrey Ink Blog Hop


Hello friends!  I’m finally back with some new cards (no rewinds!).  I’ve created two cards for the Papertrey Ink blog hop today using the Make it Monday challenge :)  I took the colours and patterns from the blog hop photo…

…and created 3 different patterned papers using Daydreamer and Background Basics Retro sets.


Here’s another card I used with the leftover papers from the first card :)  I was really happy the way the floral paper turned out :)  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!

Happy Spring Rewind Rewind!

Come and let us seek together
Springtime lore of daffodils,
Giving to the golden weather
Greeting on the sun-warm hills.

~ from Spring Song by Lucy Maud Montgomery

Fair Spring ! Whose simplest promise more delights
Than all their largest wealth, and thro' the heart
Each joy and new-born hope
With softest influence breathes. 

~from Ode to Spring by Anna Lætitia Barbauld


Hi dear friends!  For those of you who’ve been around here for awhile, this is my using Ode to Spring post.  It’s my favourite season and I cannot let the day go by without singing “AMEN!” to Spring.  However, there’s been no studio time this week so I thought I’d repost last year’s rewind (hence the double rewind of my post title! LOL).  I should have something new for you next week :)  In the meantime, have a fabulous first day of Spring!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day ~ Rewinds!


Hi friends!  Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  I can’t believe how quickly it sneaks up on me!  LOL  My days and weeks are still very FULL so while I keep my “eye on the prize” in two months (my Masters), I thought I’d leave you with some of my favourite St. Patrick’s Day cards over the last couple of years.  This first one was on my St. Patrick’s Day post last year :)  And before I leave you, here’s a little Irish Blessing I found on this blog.
