147 More Days to Christmas

So far this summer the weather has hardly been summery. Fog, rain, wind, grey. Some days have stepped up but more days I find I am looking forward to the possibility of snow this winter. I say possibility because here in Victoria BC snow doesn't usually show up. When it does though the city shuts down for a day and we get to play. So yesterday after work I came home and played with my http://www.kraftinkimmiestamps.com sending winter Hugs Snowman. I love him he is a little cutie.  I thought instead of a card I would make a Christmas type decoration.  Had a lot of trouble taking a decent picture of it though so this is it.

Iam back from summer vacation

Feels like forever since I have done anything crafty but now I am back from summer vacation and ready to get crafty. My Bald Man sweetly allowed me to take over his den as my new craft room. Love the room soooooooo much! Tonight I enjoyed some much needed crafting time by practising skin tones. Have I mentioned I love my new craft room lol.

Sunday in the city

The weather was hot today. Got up early and enjoyed Sunday breakfast with my Bald Man and the kids. Then we grabbed the camera and headed into town to enjoy the sights at the inner harbour. Most of my  family tanned, one stayed the same  and of course I got burnt. I have a love hate relationship with the sun. Despite my burn I have missed the sunshine this long grey winter so I choose to LOVE it.
Earlier this morning before we left I had an hour to play so I used my first Sparkle Creation stamp. My neighborhood has a belly or two announcing  new babes by the end of summer. So I figured I had better get on the new baby cards.

Lazy,lazy day and I LOVED it!

Woke up early this morning and curled up on the couch with a cup of tea and that set the tone of the day. Walked around the Sooke market, hung out with my Bald man , coloured and now I am waiting for my treat that Pat bought for desert tonight. A yummy looking Gluten Free Chocolate slice. 
The image today that I coloured is the adorable Kiki La Rue from http://www.allthatscraps.com/. I thought she would make a cute Birthday Card for a girlfriend of mine.

Summer FINALLY arrived!

I say summer has arrived because we had a day without wind, rain or grey sky. However the temperature was more Spring like than 4th of July. I will take it though. Felt great to get outside and soak up some much needed vitamin D. I haven't been crafting lately as I was busy the past week or so with a house guest. My daughters best friend came to spend some time with us before she moved to another province. Sad times here. I am hoping that my daughter will find me entertaing enough to help her through the summer. Today I had a little while to play with my new Sea Jewels stamp set from http://www.kraftinkimmiestamps.com/. Hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far and stay safe when out and about.
