Sunny Sunday

Woke up this morning on the last day of September. The sun was shining but there was a chill in the air. I thought about some of my friends that live for summer. Some of them get upset when the season turns cooler. I saw this qoute about summer and decided to make a card with my new Saturated Canary stamp to the lake.

Sick Kids, sick Dog, Hide in my craft room

Not much to say that the title of this post doesn't say. Two kids down with a chest/ sinus thing. Then the Dog needed a rush visit to the vet. The kids are on the mend and the Dog is also doing good. Me I drank a lot of coffee today and spent the afternoon hiding in my craft room . Looking forward to a quieter day tomorrow. Hopefully the kids feel good enough to return to school.

Grey Days

So now that I have finished reading the shades of Grey series I was inspired to play with Saturated Canaries Grey tie Digital stamp. I like the instant convince of digital however I LOVE the pile of rubber stamps I seem to have collected this past year. I don't think I can become a digital girl but I think it may be a fun place visit once in a while. When I do visit the digital world will be my go to site. Her stamps are fun, unique and current. Other than hanging out in my craft room I am all alone tonight. Son is is his x box gaming world, daughter is with a bud, wee dogs are sleeping and husband is off at his poker game. Just a Saturday night with me, my blog, my markers and Vampire Diaries on Netflix. I would take Damon Salvatore over Mr Christian Grey any day but thats just me. I am a sucker for vampires.

96 more Days till Christmas!

I know for a lot of people the thought of Christmas in September is just something they don't do.
However if you have been following my blog or know me personally than you know I start my countdown on Boxing Day.
It may be considered to be a sickness to some but its part of my charm.
This year I am excited because not only have I been making Christmas cards to send to my friends and family but I have actually sold some too.
It just really makes me happy to know that there are people out there who like my cards enough to buy them.
My Christmas wish this year is to bring Christmas cards back in fashion.
Over the years I have noticed a steady decline in Christmas cards.
Christmas texts, E cards and Facebooks messages I receive plenty of.
The kind that give you a thrill of anticipation every time you walk to the mailbox during the holidays however not so much.
Today I played with Kraftin Kimmies Felicity stamp and you can find her and other great stamps at

The papers I used are from the Minds Eye Lost and Found Paper pack and Recollections cardstock.

Not a Christmas Card

Seems like I haven't been on here FOREVER! Life gets busy sometimes. Today I stole some time to play with my new Wee stamp that I bought from Whimsy stamps....... Summer Fairy. I just love her she is adorable. Here in Victoria BC it feels more like summer than June,July and August put together. Too bad school and work are taking up everybody's time or else I think the beaches would be packed.

This card is going to work with me tomorrow, for somebody who is always there to lend me hand and a kind word. Nothing makes a Wednesday better than a pretty card.

56 more days till mini Chocolate Bar Night!

Today I played with my new CC Design Devilish Lucy Stamp.
Last week my daughter and niece and I were wandering around Value Village trying to come up with ideas for our Halloween Costumes.
So many choices.
Not sure what our plan is but what I do know is that my neighbourhood gets roughly 500 kids knocking at our doors.
Thats a lot of mini chocolate Bars.
What candy do you hand out on Halloween?

First Day Of School!

Everyone seems to have survived the first day of school!
No tears just a few moans and groans of protest this morning as I pushed them out the door.
Me however I dread tonight.
The routine I must once again fall into.
Making school lunches.............groan.
So this morning while the kids were off meeting their new teachers.
I spent some much needed quiet time meeting a new stamp that has come to live in my ever growing collection.
