{DS140} Celebrate!

So....here we are, into MARCH!  Hopefully wherever you may be reading this, spring is closer than it is here!  It's still supposed to be cold and snowy for a few more weeks here!

With the wintery weather, and mostly the nasty windchill, I've been able to stay inside and get a little crafty.

February was full of birthdays in our family.  My middle son was born on the 1st, and our youngest was born on the 28th!  Throw in both my birthday, DH's and the Olympics, and February was fairly full!

I usually start out looking for a great sketch when I'm sitting down to make a card.  I came across this Deconstructed Sketch, and had to give it a try.

The colour palette was inspired by the ColourQ Challenge #230.  I started by using my NEW dies from Lil' Inker.  I LOVE these stitched dies, and they don't get put away often!

The tag was cut out using the Tag Me die from Reverse Confetti.  I then stamped the circles, from Whole Lotta Dots (also by Reverse Confetti!) in Summer Starfruit ink.  I added the stars (Lil' Inker) and the sentiment (also Lil' Inker), and the card was finished!

It's the first time I've ever tried a circular card.  I'll definitely be trying it again!

Thanks for stopping by today!

{RS98} 5!

Good Morning!

It's FRIDAY!  I'm getting all these cards caught up, and in the midst of getting parts of life back into routine!

This card I made for my middle son's birthday.  I LOVE this sketch from Retro Sketches.  It'll be a go to for me now!

I started by pulling out some DP that has been stashed away, Appleton by Scenic Route.  I'm trying to get old paper cleared out before I purchase new stuff.....which will work until I see something I HAVE to have! (wink!)

The "happy" die is a new one from Simon Says Stamp, which I cut out twice with different colours.

The birthday stamp is from Everyday Circles by Neat & Tangled.

A peek at the inside:

That's all for today!  Have a great day!

{DS137} 50!

Good evening!

I've successfully posted two days in a row.....I'm sure this trend won't last, but there's nothing wrong with good intentions!

I fully intended to make some cards and scrapbook tonight, but I've somehow managed to accomplish next to nothing!

Last week, a friend, mentor, and coworker celebrated her 50th birthday!

I started out with the Deconstructed Sketch #137, and set off to work!  Again, I used the Doodlebug Designs Take Note paper (ahem, I accidentally bought 2 of them!).

The "50" was cut out using the Tall Numbers dies from Taylored Expressions.

Thanks for stopping by again today!  Hopefully I'll be back again soon!

{VLV} Happy Birthday

Good Morning!

So, it's been A LONG TIME since I posted last!  I've been a terrible blogger as of lately.  But I'm hoping things have turned a corner for now, and I'll be able to be a good blogger for a while!

On to the good stuff.....

My DD had a birthday party this past weekend, and needed a card.  I found this week's Viva La Verve sketch, and set to work!

I had already coloured up this adorable Wrynn (Eat More Cake), from Tiddly Inks Digitals.  I then pulled everything else together using the Take Note paper pad by Doodlebug Design Co.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Hopefully I'll have a new post tomorrow!

Stamps - Eat More Cake Wrynn (Tiddly Inks), Sentiment from Verve Stamps
Paper - Bazzil White, Basic Gray (SU!), Take Note (Doodlebug Design Co.)
Other - Copics, Heart Quartet Die (Verve), Nestabilities, Banner Bundle Die (Verve), Tall Numbers (Taylored Expressions), Fishtail Flags (MFT)

{DS126} Happy Birthday

I finally got a chance to sit down and get a card made….it feels like it's been forever!

I love a great sketch, and the Deconstructed Sketch is definitely a great place to start.  Jen has awesome sketches!

This card was made for a friend, who needed one for her nephew's 4th Birthday.  It had to be John Deere themed too!  This excavator worked perfectly!

The number is a die from Paper Smooches, as is the sentiment.  The excavator is from an old Stampin' Up set.

Short and sweet for me tonight….back to work!

Thanks for stopping by!

My Last TPE Post

Good afternoon all!

As my title indicates, this is my last post as a DT Member of the Pink Elephant.  I had such a great time working with all the TALENTED members of the DT.  Now I'll just have to keep up with the challenges as a participant!

This week the challenge was wedding/anniversary.

Here's my page:

I just love how this page came together.  It's from a kit called Homey Heart.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

{DS119} Minnie and her Lights

Good Morning!

Fall has definitely arrived here in SW Ontario.  There's a bit of frost on the ground, and it is time to break out the slippers in the house!

I've finally got to starting my christmas cards (a little late for me!) and thought that the latest Deconstructed Sketch was a perfect starting point.

I started out with Minnie's Christmas Lights, by Tiddly Inks Digitals.  She was printed out, coloured, then cut out.  I added some Smooch Glitter to the lights.

The paper is from the Winter Fun collection by Carta Bella.

Thats it from me today!  Thanks for stopping by.
