Sweet Sunday Sketch #2!

I liked Karen's sketch so much I had to make another card. I saw a card on Pinterest where someone had used crystal effects on this martini glass and just had to do it. Stamps are MFT, card stock is SU, DSP is by Recollections (Michael's).

My First Sweet Sunday Sketch

I finally decided to play along with the SSSC, Karen Giron's blog is AMAZING and I'm in total envy of everything she creates. I case her work often, she's so inspiring. Here's my card for the challenge - I'm just learning to colour with Copics, I went to the school of youtube…LOL so I need to work on my colouring skills. Stamps are MFT, all paper is SU. Thanks for looking…and if you have time take a minute to check out Karen's blog,

Merry Christmas from Chasers!

I love this photo of Chase and had to share....Merry Christmas everyone!

Christmas Money Holders

I love these quick and easy money holders because you can whip one up in under 15mins! And who doesn't love getting money? Don't be shy to email me if you'd like the instructions :)


This is a card I made for my girlfriend - she needed it for her brother who recently graduated from the RCMP. I bought this set from CTMH awhile back and was so excited to finally get to use it. The card was a big hit!

The Secret of Life

I love this quote, I thought it would be perfect for a retirement card. The card is being circulated around the office, so I made it accordion style to allow for lots of signing room. I randomly stamped sentiments throughout.
Stamp and cardstock are SU, dies are from MFT, and the DSP is a scrap I had lying around, I can't remember who makes it. Thanks for stopping by!

For Colton

My mom never orders cards off me (she doesn't like that when it comes to her, the price is 'free'), but we've recently had a new addition to our family, my great-nephew, and my parents very first great-grandchild.
We're all very excited about this beautiful little boy who has joined our family, and I can hardly wait to head to Maine to meet him.
Paper is SU Marina Mist and Pacific Point, stamps are SU I'm Here, and Papertrey Ink Inside & Out, Baby.

I finally pulled out my MFT Ring Me stamps & dienamics set - boy was it fun!

Paw Prints

I made this keepsake box for my neighbours who lost their beautiful kitty Gorilla. I was going to simply use black and white, but thought a splash of Pool Party would brighten it up just a little bit - I was really happy with the result.
