Pink Paislee and 2S4U

It's another crazy week here, but I felt the need to grab a few minutes in my studio...you know...just to reconnect with all my stuff.

School starts in a week and this year we have a high school-er and a University student. Big changes at our house. So far I'm doing ok...ask me next week when Dana moves out to residence. It'll be an adjustment, but very exciting too. A new chapter for our family.

So on to my cards today. I bought this Pink Paislee (Queen Bee) paper in Edmonton last month. So glad to use it, love the natural, garen-y feel of this line. This card is for this weeks' sketch at 2 Sketches 4 You. I used VersaFine ink to stamp the Studio G image onto tissue paper and attached it to the label with a Making Memories brad. The sentiment sticker is from SRM Stickers and the ribbon was shared by Barb. She is a wonderful sharer.

This is the bonus sketch at 2S4Y this week. Loved the sketch, this came together really fast. I love it when I have time to make 2 cards from the same supplies.
That's all for me today. Hope you have a good week. I know mine will just fly by and we'll be dropping off at University in no time.

CPS # 181

Today, we're shopping for things for my daughter to take to University.

Yup...my baby is that old! The years have just flown. She's excited though and I know it'll be an amazing experience for her. And I also know I'm going to miss her to bits. She will only be about 45 minutes away, so we'll hopefully see her often. The winds of change are coming.....

Today's card is an Oldie Moldie. I know I have been a really bad Oldie Moldie Monday participant so it's time to dig into the stash pile and use up some paper. This paper is from Hot Off The Press. I still like it, I'll have to use it more often.

This is based on this week's sketch at Card Positioning Systems. The bird stamp is from Inkadinkadoo, the sentiment is from Papertry Ink, flowers are from Prima.

Today's shopping should be fun (except on the wallet!) but in about 2 weeks, the Kleenex will be flying. And it won't be pretty.

Hope you have a fab Monday!

365 Cards-Super Sketchy Sunday

Sunday is almost over but I thought I'd sneak in this card for the sketch challenge at 365 Cards
It's been a while since I've had a chance to do one of their challenges.

The flowers are die cut from tissue paper, the buttons are from my stash, the papers are older 7 Gypsies and the stamp is from Papertrey Ink.

It was a rainy day today which was ok, the rain was much needed by our new lawn. We did manage to get out and pull some weeds and do some yard work this evening when the rain stopped. I know...I lead an exciting life, don't I??!!

Hope you've had a great weekend.

Congratulations Card

I seem to be on a clean and simple roll! I love how quickly these cards come together. Today's card is based on the sketch at Clean and Simple Stamping (FTL 104).

The paper is from My Mind's Eye (Lush), stamp is from Stampabilities, charm is from Frost Creek charms, heart brad is from Creative Imaginations.

Keeping this short and sweet...Happy Sunday!

SRM Sketch Challenge

On our recent trip to Edmonton, I snuck away to a scrapbooking store and got some new things. I really was in desperate need of new things...well not really, but it's always nice to get a few new things to spark creativity. One of the things I got was a 6x6 pad of Webster's Pages paper and just love it. It really doesn't need much embellishing to make a card.

This is based on the weekend sketch challenge on the SRM Sticker's Blog. The paper is Party Lights from Webster's Pages, flower is from Prima, trim is from May Arts and the sticker sentiment is form SRM.

And here's another quick card using scraps and SRM stickers.

I actually met Brandin O'Neill from Webster's Pages at CHA a few years ago. They were just coming out with their first new line and she was as nice as could be. And their products are just gorgeous! I'm so glad I got my hands on some of their beautiful paper.

That's it for me today...hope you have a Happy Saturday.

August already?

Holy cow, the summer is just flying. Are you finding that too? There is just not enough time in the day. My poor little blog seems to have become a monthly event.

I did find some time this week to play along with this weeks Card Patterns sketch. This cute snowman is from a set of tags that I bought in the post Christmas sales in January. The snowflake punch is from Martha Stewart and the card base is from the $ store. This is quite possibly the most inexpensive card that I've ever made!

Here are a couple of quick and easy cards that I made with scraps, Colorbok borders and SRM stickers.

Thanks for stopping by. The weather here was just beautiful, sunny with no humidity. Loved it! Hope you're having a good start to your weekend.
