Angel Mail

I have two buddies through the ChemoAngels program, a three year old girl and a six year old boy. They both live in Ottawa and are actually being treated at the same hospital, for the same cancer (ALL Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia). These are the cards I made them this week. I cased the MFT Pure Innocence one from Pinterest, and as you can tell by the boy card - he's an Ottawa Senators fan.

Two in Blue

Here is my 'angel mail' for this week, both my little buddies share the same favourite colour - blue! I try to personalize their cards as much as I can. I printed the images online, the sentiment stamps are from Hero Arts, and the paper is from Stampin Up (I am SO glad they brought back Pacific Point!). Thanks for stopping by.

For the Graduate

I love this graphic greetings stamp from Taylored Expressions - combined with the embossing folder (by Darice) it made for a quick and easy grad card. I handmade the little diploma. The grout grey cardstock is by MFT and the rest is Stampin' Up.

Triple The Love

Triplets - how exciting is that? I'm so happy with how this card turned out - I used the retired SU set By Ones & Twos, the cloudy day embossing folder and the MFT grass die. Thanks for looking!

Remember This?

I absolutely love the Ring Me die from MFT - and love how this card turned out! Inside says "Yep, you're old". I had a rotary phone in my bedroom growing up, so yes, I remember this.

Angel Mail

I am in a wonderful program called ChemoAngels. Volunteers (like me) are matched up with cancer patients, and send weekly uplifting cards (card angels) and small gifts (chemo angels). I've been doing this for almost two years now, and it's one of the most rewarding things I have ever done! This is my card for my little buddy this week - she's only three and is in treatment for ALS (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia). If you want to learn more about this amazing program, just go to

Western Wedding

Ever make one of those cards that turns out exactly how you wanted it to? This was one of those cards for me. My customer wanted something simple, with a western theme, for his friends getting married. When I handed it to him this morning, his exact words were "You f*#king nailed it!" LOL. I'm not one to toot my own horn, but I think so too. Have a great day everyone!

Monkey Business

I'm in the chemo angels program, so this is the card I made for my little buddy this week - she loves monkeys! I made the monkey using punches. Just a tip to all you paper crafters out there, when tacky glue makes contact with Early Espresso ink - it turns red! I'm hoping since she's three she won't notice the little red smudge - I was going to cover it with a flower but it looked odd.

Sending Hugs

As soon as I saw this MFT Pure Innocence cutie I knew I had to have it - I'm a chemo angel to a little three year old, so it's perfect. My favourite thing about MFT (haha no pun intended) - the matching dies for their PI stamps - I LOVE them. They have amazing stuff, check out their website


I bought this 'Sisterhood' stamp on my local swap n' buy wondering if I would ever use it, it was too good to pass up at $2. It came in handy last night, I really like how this card turned out. Paper is all SU (Basic Gray, Smokey Slate and Strawberry Slush). The image is coloured with Copics.

The World

We are losing our AMAZING doggy daycare lady we've had for ten years, she's moving to B.C. I made her a scrapbook filled with photos and memories of all the dogs, including our two of course.

I made this one for my husband as today is our 22nd wedding anniversary! Wow time flies. I thought this sentiment from Verve's Stronger Love set said it all. I just love this stamp set from Verve, it's one of my favourites. I followed this week's Mojo Monday sketch as well :)  Paper is all SU (Sahara Sand, Basic Grey and Pool Party). I was going to add more bling (maybe some rhinestones?) but then figured I'd keep it as masculine as possible.

Let's Celebrate

I made this card for a bachelorette party - I just love this set from MFT.

I FINALLY got my hands on some MFT paper & ink - shipping to Canada is way too expensive but my friend was just in Florida and stopped by their store - yay for me!
