Heaven Sent

I'm sneaking in a few minutes on the computer this morning. The end of summer is such a busy time. We've been trying to enjoy the last few days of freedom and trying to get the back to school shopping done all of which don't leave much time for creating or blogging.I did recently have a bit of time to play with my embossing folders. Love using them, they're so easy to use and I just love the texture they add to the card. Here's a baby card that came together really fast. Hope you enjoy the last weekend of the summer.Card stock: The Paper Company

Happy Saturday

Hope you're enjoying a nice relaxing weekend. The sun is finally out and hopefully here to stay today. We've had so much rain and so many storms that I think we're overdue for a nice weekend.
Just a quick little card that I have to share today. This is one that I made for my SIL.

Patterned paper is from Bo-Bunny, flower, brad and heart are from Making Memories and the sentiment stamp is from Print Works.

Have a wonderful Saturday!

Hi There!'s been a while, hasn't it?! How is the summer going for you so far? Ours has been crazy/busy but also a lot of fun. And I can't believe how fast it's going.
My girls spent a couple of weeks getting spoiled rotten by their grandma and all of our family in Edmonton. They had an amazing time and we are very lucky to have a very wonderful extended family that the girls just love! While they were gone out West, Steve and I went on a boating trip down the Trent-Seven Waterway here in Ontario. We had crappy weather, but loved the relaxing days on the boat and some nice 'together' time.
After that, I joined the girls in Edmonton for a week. I am so grateful to be able to go home again. My mom still lives in the same home where I grew up and having her bang pots around in the kitchen brings back so many wonderful memories.
One of the radio stations had a retro weekend while I was there. That was such a blast from the past! Hearing the same songs now that I used to listen to back then, in the house where I grew up...well it made me stop and relive the past. It almost made me feel like you can go back again, if even for the length of a song!
So my retro weekend inspired me and when I came home, I dug out my We Are Memories paper and made this card, reminding me of the 'good old days'!

Paper and chipboard are from We Are Memory Keepers, Paper Frills are from Doodlbug Design, colored with chalk ink, flower is from Prima, rhinestone is from Kaisercraft, sentiment is from JoAnne's
