Burnaby Village with Oma and the grandkids

Oma suggested we go to the Burnaby Village Museum today as the day was brilliant with blue sky.  The Village was dressed up with Christmas lights and festivities.  At the end of our journey, we went to the carousel horses and Oma and the grandkids went for a ride on the heritage horses.  Thanks for stopping by.

Here is an early xmas present for the felines...

I had the opportunity to acquire a cat shelf post for our two fabulous cats Miso and Phinnaeus.  They took to it famously.  And they love playing with each other and swatting each other.  I'm glad they love it.

More of my girls...


If you haven't visited this website, you must go now.  Krista draws such cute girls and boys...I love all her images.  Her site is saturated canary and she is quite an interesting woman.  I have coloured her girls with copic markers and I try to add some interesting papers to accent all the colours.  I love how they turned out and I hope to send these to some special people.  Thanks for dropping by.  Happy stamping.

A little birthday girl...

One of my bestest friends and co-worker is having a birthday soon so I made this card for her.  I coloured her with my copic markers and made a rosette embellishment topped off with a button.  I really love the colour choices and the layering.  I made it into an easel card using one of Tim Holtz's die shapes.  I adhered a white strip onto the back to write my sentiment.  I know she will love it.  She tells me that every card I have made for her is still out on display.  What a great friend.  Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting.  Just to say that this image comes from a gal called Krista who has a website called saturated canary.  Wow, she has such great impressions of girls and boys.  Love the hair, and detail in her outfits.  This one is a digi image and it is ONLY $2.  Can't beat that.

Last but not least...

I finally completed the last of my designs for an upcoming xmas card class.  I decided that it would be fun to make a shaker card using some chunky glitter.  I figured I could turn this gnome into a christmas gnome and coloured him like a santa.  I am happy with how it turned out.  Thanks for checking me out.

Boy card

Well we all know it is alot easier to do all things frilly and lacey but when it comes to boy cards, we kinda stumble.  I came across this stamp in my stash and just knew that this would do the trick.  I have never tried colouring with Distress Inks and my coworkers convinced me to try it out.  Wow, it really turned out well.  It takes a bit of practice getting the right amount of water on the aquabrush so it doesn't wet the paper too much but after some tries, it seemed successful.  I used the memory box die wreath (love this one!) and a paper doily for embellishments.  Hope you get some inspiration from this card.  I'm getting quite a collection now.  I don't want to give them up.  Thanks for coming by.  Happy stamping.

It's that time again....a little cheer, a little song

Well I've decided to offer an xmas card class at my workplace.  The class will consist of 4 different designs each person making two of each cards for a total of 8 cards.  In the past, I have offered making three cards of each but found it was taking over three hours to complete the projects.  So, I decreased it to two of each and everyone finished in a more decent time.  I have completed 3 of the 4 designs and will post the last one when it is completed.  I am thinking of a shaker type card for the last one.  As with all of my classes, the sentiments can be exchanged, the designer paper is often varied but the overall design is followed as my samples.  I have used glitter/dazzling diamonds/snow flock on each card so far.  It really adds sparkle and give a wintery feel to the cards.  I hope you get some inspiration from these cards and thank you for visiting.

I love this girl...

I just love these images of the beautiful girls in their traditional clothing.  I coloured her with copics and used an assortment of designer papers to accent her outfit, much like the previous post.  Thanks for checking her out.

Love this one....

Well, awhile back, my bestest SIL and I accidently got into the grapes and had a super duper time but paid for it the next day.  I found this image and I had a great chuckle because it reminded me of the time we spent together.  It is a digital image from Bugaboo's stamps and I just love it.  I coloured JJ with copics and used an assortment of designer papers to accent her lovely outfit.  Hope you like it and get a giggle out of it.

Just a little spooky...

Had a blast making these little Halloween tags/bookmarks.  I coloured each with copic markers and added some glitter to add that little extra bling.  Thanks for stopping by.  I just love the idea of adding on the googly eyes.  So cute.

My first wedding....invites that is.

OMG! So glad that these wedding invites turned out.  I am so pleased with them and really thrilled that the new bride and groom love them too.  Thankfully, I had only to make 42...still, going through the process was lots of fun.  I can now cross this off on my bucket list.  Enjoy and thanks for checking me out.

I am the stone sculpture...

My beautiful little Phinnaeus...he loves to play in the backyard and since the sun has been out and warming up the earth, he especially likes to sun-bathe. Isn't he cute. Animals are so precious. They really take you to another level of love. Anyways, hope you enjoy the day and love the ones your with.
