Birthday Season!!

You know those months that seem to be filled with birthdays, in my world February and March are loaded.
When I saw this Some Odd Girl Stamp I thought she was perfect for a few ladies in my life celebrating birthdays right now.
Also celebrating a birthday is My Bald Man ,he just had his 42, time sure does fly by.
Seems like it was just yesterday that I met a scrawny 19 year old boy one day while I was working at my Dads gas station.
At sixteen I knew we would be together forever.
Now at 42 he is still my everything.

The papers I used on this card are from Wild Rose Studio " Strawberry Picnic".
The flowers and bling brads are from my personal stash.
Coloured her up with Copics and a added couple buttons for fun.

Cheers and eat some birthday cake if you get the chance

Happy Valentines Day!!!

Today I have baked brownies for desert, bought Hershey's kisses for my Bald Man and the kids. Will be in a few moments making Chocolate Chicken for dinner. Must be Valentines Day! I decided to play with Cocoa from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps. I thought she was perfect for today.

I tried to stipple the colours I used for the chocolates as a shadow around her. Not my favourite but I gave it  try and thats what counts.
Happy Chocolate Day xo

Some days just turn into One of those days

I will admit this day may not have gotten off on the right side of the bed seeing as I could not fall asleep last night.
Then my bus was late, it was raining and blah blah blah........... shaking it off lol.
Decided to save the day by spending some quiet time in my craft room.
My version of a grown up time out.
I thought out of  all my stamps that Priya from Kraftin Kimmie seemed the most serene today.
She was calling me to colour her.
I did feel much more relaxed after some crafting time.
Then like a miracle the sun came out, friends called for a visit.
The day turned from one of THOSE days to one of those days.
Capital letters say it all lol.
I made this card for  friends of mine that wanted a card for a couple that has been there for them .
I hope they like her, I know I do.
Now off to refill my coffee cup!

Love and marriage

Had a day off from work today since this is BC first Family day!
So far my family is happily being lazy.
Iam enjoying some quiet time in my craft room with a bottle of Perrier.
The kids call it my pretend pop.
I was commissioned to make a 50th wedding anniversary card.
I chose Tom and Tilly from Mo's Digital pencil stamp site.
I love this picture.
In a world where I have many friends and family that didn't even make it to their tenth wedding anniversary.
It makes me happy to know there are still lovers that stand the test of time.
This week is also host to Valentines Day.
The day of commercial love many people say.
I still say as long as you dont NEED a date on the calendar to make your spouse or partner know you love them; than its ok to enjoy the hearts and flowers.
I do.

I had a second card ordered this week.
A birthday card for a star lover.
That one was tricky.
I have a couple cute images that had characters that had something to do with stars but I was afraid they were to juvenile for a 60th birthday.
So instead I found some star paper in my Christmas stash and used bling to jazz it up.
I like how it turned out.

Finally Friday!!!!

This really seems to have been a long week.
Between work, my son going through his first week of high school exams  and did I mention work lol . I am thrilled today is Friday.
My saturday is jam packed with commitments but Sunday is free to do nothing.
However Saturday will finish off with a movie date with my Bald Man.
Zombie loving time.
I am actually not a Zombie fan but I love chick flics.
So Zombie meets girl and girl loves Zombie why not!
If everyone can love a vampire why not a gross walking corspe.
My plan for Sunday is sleeping in, reading, crafting.
Whatever I want to do not what I have to do. Bliss!!!
This afternoon I had some time to play with my new Mashi Muffins stamp from CC Design called Sweet.
I think she is a perfect Valentine stamp to mark the first of February.
The love month!!! 

Hope you all have a great weekend resting, working or playing
