Impression Obsession Designer Challenge-Bunny Love


Good Morning!!!
Today's Challenge is Bunny Love

I LOVE the new Bunny Die 
I was so excited to get it in my designer box and I have to say it's the first card I wanted to create!

My Girlfriends and I , have a monthly challenge in which one person sends the same supplies to everyone and then we all create a card. It's so fun to see how everyone has such different creations, even with the same supplies. Anyway, this adorable background paper was a piece I had left over from the challenge. I paired it with the Checkered Framesto make this super sweet card.
Happy Easter is on the designer paper, so I left it sentiment free

Hope you likey!

Impression Obsession Designer Challenge-Happy Easter



Good Morning and Happy Spring!!!!

Although it was a little chilly here yesterday, it truly felt like spring.
The sun shining strong, melting the last of the ice and snow; the wind whistling and whirling bringing us a fresh breath



I was working at home yesterday and I'm sure Sydney had Spring Fever as she bugged me every hour on the hour to go outside. Needless to say, we had a few good walks!


This week we're featuring Easter cards over at IO Stamps!!!!

Today I'm featuring a couple of Easter dies


I used the Marvelous Mask Ovals Stencil to create the background with 

I'm not the best with Silhouette Stamps, but I think this little guy turned out nice!

Dying to share my Die Cut Obsession


Good Morning!!!!

I know I'm a touch late for the party, but I didn't want to post these pictures early because this one is for a St. Patricks Day Swap I did with my besties and while I was at it, I created Two Birthday cards for two dear dear friends who both turned 60 this week!!!!

These are the stamps and dies I used for the project~




This card is for my dear friend Kim.


s one i



I would have never been blessed with her friendship had I not been introduced to stamping!
Kim actually lives about 4 hours east of me, but we often craft together via Face time and she, along with some other special ladies up that way are so dear to my heart!!! I think she might see this here before she actually see's it for real as I don't think it arrived in her mailbox by Friday!!!




This one if for our friend Colleen, who really is like family!



We were a little younger then!!! (Yep, I wasn't eligible to wear a Red Hat !!)

She is Beautiful inside and out!!!


I love the Shadow clover stamp!
I just stamped it, cut it out and then distressed it a bit!
The little gold nuggets are just Rhinestones from the Dollarama!!!

I really love how these turned out,

As much as I {heart} the women who are receiving them!

Is Spring coming?


With Spring upon us, I was inspired to play in my art Journal. I  totally LOVE the  Spring Ring Stencil and I can see myself using it over and over.

Anyway, I decided to make a little bit of a background using the  Mid Century Birds Stencil
Once I got this in, I put the Spring Ring in the middle of the page and started using various inks to colour it in. . Then I traced the outer circle and added in my pattern to make it the focal point of my page...... Then I had an OOPS!!!
A BIG OOPS

A Huge smudge on my page from my arm, which I dragged through the ink.....initially I was SO bummed!!! but THEN......

I dipped my arm in the ink again and again and again and created the additional pattern on the bottom of the page, which I think looks pretty cool. I'm just glad the colour coordinated with my page!!!!

I can't wait to play a little more with these stencils and the rest of the new release~~~~~

Have an amazing day!!!
