What a weekend

What could be better than spending a day stamping with friends....the answer, a second day stamping with family. This was such a great weekend. Sat, 5 ladies joined me as we cropped for the foodbank. Thanks Ladies for your donations to the foodbank, and for the fun and fellowship we shared. These Ladies are known as the “Phi Beta Scrappa Sista’s”, I hope to become a much fun.

Then on Sunday as we celebrated my Mom's, my Sisters, and my nieces birthdays, we set up and stamped all afternoon.

It doesn't matter if you are creating with one friend, or a room full...the laughter and love shared is priceless.

Enjoy your week, and let me know how those Christmas cards are coming along!!!

Sunday Special...

Hello Stamping Friends. I finally have my camera back, so wanted to show off what I made today. When the new in colours came out, the least favourite for me was crushed curry. I have used it on it's own with white, and was quite happy, however, just couldn't seem to find the right combo with other colours. Today while scanning Splitcoast, I saw a great card, and immediately had my inspiration. Be sure to check out this blog for other wonderful creations. This card also demonstrates the versatility of the ornament punch. I just snipped off the bottom and now it is a lovely vase.

Now for the "Special". In honour of next Saturday's Crop for the foodbank (by the way still plenty of spots lefts!) I am offering a special. For any order over $25.00 before shipping and taxes, you can select anything from page 208 of the Idea book. This includes "Dasher" of my most favourite stamps this year.

I know, I know...

it has been far too long since I posted anything here. I have tons of items to show you, but my daughter borrowed my camera! For your viewing pleasure in the mean time, take a quick tour of my demo site, and check out all the specials.

Another reminder of our Christmas Crop for the Foodbank. Please join the fun, and help us collect food for those less fortunate.

This card was made by a fellow demo, and I took the this set "Wandering Words" from the mini catty...

Thanks Ladies....

Last night 3 lovely ladies, Crystal, Jan and Jenn, joined me in my craft room and we all worked on our own projects. My Hubby has seasons tickets to the London Knights, so rather than sit by myself, I am starting "bring your own project" nights. Watch for upcoming dates, once I have November figured will be the first to know when to come over. These are free nights. Just bring your own paper and project ideas, and use my big shot and stamps if you like. The more the merrier.

These are quick ornaments that are a great way to use up all those scraps of dsp I just can't throw out. All the directions are from Splitcoast Stampers...check it out here.

Today has been a beautiful, sunny fall day. Hubby is off to the hockey game tonight, so Carol and I are going to see "Couples Retreat"...hope it is as funny as the previews indicate. It has been forever (I really don't remember the last time) that I went to the movies with a friend...this will be a nice treat!

My House...tonight!

Hi Ladies...finally Friday...hip hip hooray! I was actually home yesterday as my girl was sick from the meds she was taking for her teeth. No matter how old they are, they still need there Mom when not feeling so great!

If you live in the area...please feel free to pop over tonight. Bring your own project and play along with me!

7-9, at my house.

As promised, here are more cards that I totally cased from Andrea. I added a few drops of old olive re-inker to a few drops of Champaign mist shimmer paint. To apply this to my stamp I used a sponge dauber. The effect is soft and shimmery....I love it, and a LITTLE goes a long way. Enjoy your day, and I hope you get out this weekend...the news just said 14 degrees on Sunday...

Inspiration from Andrea

Andrea Walford is a very talented, creative and generous person. Her blog is fantastic, and what I appreciate the most, she gives the to copy her is a no brainer!!

It took no time at all to create 6 cards. I did change up her idea a bit, my card is chocolate chip, with real red accents. The snowflake is a sizzlet die from the big shot. Wandering words, is the stampset I used, from the winter mini...such a great set.

Be sure to check out her won't be disappointed. Check back tomorrow for more inspiration from Andrea...

Happy Wednesday to you all. I am at home today, and hope to get some stamping projects accomplished. My "baby" Kathryn had 2 wisdom teeth out this morning...what a took the dentist almost 1 hour to pull the bottom tooth..the roots were wrapped around the bone, but after lots of wiggling and giggling, he got it out! We are very lucky to have a caring and kind dentist here in town. It saved going to a surgeon and being put under, and I know we saved some $$$ too!

The card today uses a wonderful set called Season of Friendship, it has a seasonal theme, so if you are looking for an all purpose set...this may be it.

Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to check out my demosite for all the information on the specials this month...including how you can get "FREE" decor elements.
