Superkid


For my chemo angel buddy - because every kid fighting cancer is a superhero in my books.

You Had Me At Merlot


Isn't this the funnest card ever? I cased it from one I saw on Pinterest. I can't wait to give it to someone! :)

Tool Time



I finally used up some of the cork paper I bought awhile back, and it was perfect for this card. The dies and stamps are from MFT, I just love all of their stuff. The paper is all SU.

Angel Mail



This is the card I made for my little buddy this week, and I made one for his little sister as well. He's four and she's two. When I embossed the background for her card I had a totally different theme/layout planned....and only realized after I'd assembled that the flower background is weird! I'm hoping that because she's only two, she won't notice or care :)

Habby Birthday



Haha, get it? Well, these aren't exactly birthday cards, they're thank you cards but I couldn't resist. Go Habs Go!

Every Love Story



I made this card for a friend, her and her bf are celebrating their one year dating anniversary - I'm so happy for them! I absolutely love this quote.

Flashback Friday


Today I wanted to post something other than a card. I recently came across this photo on my computer, and was reminded how much I love it. It's of my nephew Tyler and his little sister Sydney - two of my favourite people in the whole wide world.  I'm going to visit them in 18 days! :)

A Very Special Thank You


My family had a lot of people to thank last week after my dad's passing - one of them is my old childhood friend who later ended up being my parent's neighbour. Along with his own family, he often treated my parents like family. He and my dad always loved to talk football, so this is the card I made for him. I was totally winging it but like how it turned out. All card stock is SU (Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Whisper White and Gumball Green).

Halloween Birthday


Why have I waited so long to try ink on my embossing folders? I whipped up this background paper in under two minutes! I love that someone needed a Halloween themed birthday card, I never get to make them and it's one of my favourite times of the year.

Fall in Montreal


I had to go back home to Greenfield Park (just outside of Montreal) unexpectedly. It was a week of chaos but in the midst of it I managed to take a few pics of the beautiful fall foliage. This one is my absolute favourite. You just can't beat fall in Quebec.

I'm Rooting For You

I'm stopping in with a quick card I made for one of my chemo angel buddies. I'm not sure where all the black crap came from after I posted the pic to Instagram, but oh well, you get the idea. I can't get enough of this new Soda Pop stuff from MFT!

Time To Make The Doughnuts!

I finally caved and bought the doughnut stamps & dies from MFT, and I'm so glad I did. I had so much fun making this 'box' of doughnuts. I'm sending this card to my little buddy along with a Tim Hortons gift card so he can treat himself to the real thing.

Guitar Card


Just stopping in quickly to share a card I made last week, it was way more work than I expected but I do love how it turned out! I  free handed the guitar and fussy cut it. I then stamped it with SU's woodgrain background stamp. All paper is SU. Have a great day :)

Won't You Tell Me How To Get....


....how to get to Sesame Street! I am not a fan of punch art, but I had fun making these characters last night. The green paper (Sour Apple) is from MFT, the rest of the paper is from SU. Have a great day!

Spectacular!


I saw a card like this on Pinterest and couldn't wait to make one. I love how the glasses turned out. I die cut them five times, adhered together and then added crystal effects to give them a glossy look. Very fun! I'm sending this card to my little chemo angel buddy this week.

Superhero


I made this for my little buddy this week, because any kid fighting cancer is a Superhero in my books! I love being part of the chemoangels program. All cardstock is SU, and I used some MFT stamps and dies. I found batman online and fussy cut him out.

Back to School!


I laughed out loud when my neighbour sent me this photo. I had commented that my entire facebook feed was filled with back to school photos so she took this for me. Chase & Gemini all ready to go!

Moms Rule


I love the colours in this card. I really miss Stampin Up's Gumball Green. Is it wrong to be sad about a retired paper colour? I made a similar card for my own mom a few years ago, this one I made for a customer. Happy Monday!

Happiness is....Ice Cream!


This is the card I made for my little buddy to send next week as I'll be away - I'm trying to get ahead of the game for once! I'm also sending DQ gift cards for him and his sister, because who doesn't love DQ??? The stamps are from CTMH's Ice Cream Dream set, all the paper is SU and I coloured the image with copics. I added crystal effects to the windows but you can't tell in my crappy photo!

Out Of This World


This was my first ever card in a box! I made it for my six year old buddy (via chemoangels). It's such a fun card, I really think he'll like it! I can't believe that it folds perfectly flat for mailing. I can't wait to send him this one.All the card stock is from Stampin' Up and the stamps are from Papertrey Ink.

BFF


It's never easy to lose a pet, if you're like me, than they are your children. I made this for a co-worker as her friend is experiencing this terrible loss. As it turns out, he got his black lab from the same place that we did, www.starstrucklabradors.com, so I've seen him on the facebook page. What a small world. I feel horrible for him as he grieves his BFF (best furry friend).

Future Nurse


I had a lot of fun making this card - I saw the idea on Pinterest. I made the template myself and used punches to finish it off. I sent it to my former chemo angel buddy who is now in nursing school, and just received good grades!

Kick it!

I made this one for my little buddy (via the chemoangels program). I re-read his bio and totally forgot that he loves soccer! I hope he gets a kick out of this card...haha no pun intended. I used all SU paper, as well as their hexagon embossing folder. I used the Papertrey hexagon die to make the ball, and the sentiment is from TAWS.

Gone, But Never Forgotten....


Pet sympathy cards are my least favourite to make. With that being said, I am happy with how this one turned out. It's for a co-worker who lost her kitty quite suddenly. It's never easy, they are family to us. I used the Tim Holtz brick embossing folder, the dies are from Memory Box, and all the cardstock is from SU.

Sending Love

I think I will be playing with the new Stampin'  Up Watercolor Wonder a lot. I love it! I'm sending this card to a friend, I hope she likes it :)

Moo


I get so much inspiration from the MFT design team, and in return, MFT gets a lot of money from me! When I saw Karin Akesdotter's card I knew I had to buy 'The Whole Herd'. She gets all the cred for this one, I just recreated it:)

True Love


I  wanted to make a non-traditional 1st wedding anniversary card, so this is it! (I think). I was inspired by Karen Giron's amazing version, I just changed the colours up a little bit. Stamps and dies are MFT, and all the paper is Stampin Up.

Shark Attack!


I saw a similar card on Pinterest and was totally inspired to make one, immediately! LOL. I am sending it to my six year old chemo angel buddy, I'm pretty sure he'll like it. The mouth opens and closes - super fun! I used oval dies and circle punches. All card stock is by SU (Smoky Slate, Pool Party, Basic Black). Have a great day!

Happy Day to You


I'm not a big fan of green, but I really like Stampin Up's Pistachio Pudding. I can't seem to get enough of this colour. I used the MFT Happy & Flower dies. I'm sending this card to my chemo angel buddy who is going through a really hard time, hopefully it brightens her day:)

Two Of My Favourite People


I thought I'd share something other than a card for once. This is a recent pic of my nephew Tyler & niece Sydney. They are definitely two of my favourite people. I don't get to see them near enough. Tyler just got a new dirt bike, and well....I think Syd might need a kayak! They're so lucky to live smack in the middle of nature in beautiful B.C.

Hello Friend


I saw a card similar to this on Pinterest and knew I had to CASE it for my chemo angel buddy. I used stamps by Verve, CTMH & SU and all the paper is SU. Have a nice day!

Pure Innocence


MFT stamps has a line of these addorable little girls, they're called Pure Innocence, and they are my absolute favourite stamps to ink up and colour. My colouring skills still need work but I'm getting there. Isn't she just the cutest? I stamped her again and then fussy cut her dress out. The cardstock is all from SU, I used Melon Mambo, Concord Crush and Lucky Limeade. Have a great day!

Little Green Monster


I love making angel mail (but hate the circumstances). This is the card I made for my six year old buddy this week, I hope it makes him giggle. It made me giggle. I used Pacific Point, Gumball Green and Basic Black for the paper (all Stampin Up) and the stamp set is from Technique Tuesdays.

My Favourite Card


I came home to a surprise today - this AWESOME card from my niece Syd. It made my whole face smile! I'm so touched that she took the time to make it for me, and I love that card making talent runs in our family:) Syd, if you're checking my blog - THANK YOU! Love you to the moon and back.

Feelin' Crafty!

I made a few of these (along with my husband's help...but ssshhhh, don't tell him I told you) for all the moms in our neighbourhood for Mother's Day. Not bad for our first try!

Kinda Eclectic


I just received this stamp set and couldn't wait to play with it, so of course I went to Pinterest for some inspiration. I think this set will see a lot of ink! Have a great day.

Beach Wedding

One of the guys in our office recently got married in Turks & Caicos so this is the card I made for him and his new wife...who doesn't love a beach wedding? I made this one on the fly but I'm really happy with how it turned out. Paper is all from SU, the stamps and dies are from MFT and Papertrey Ink.

O'Canada


I love making Canada themed cards. This one is for a co-worker who's friend just received her Canadian citizenship. I made the flag using a maple leaf stamp and some red card stock.

Beach Baby


Ok - I'm my own worst critic, but I absolutely love how his card turned out! When I was asked to do a beach themed baby card I was a little unsure - but once I found the sand and the tiny shells I knew right away - shaker card! Thanks for stopping by to take a look:)

Go Green!

I'm a card angel (via www.chemoangels.com) but this week I decided to send my buddy a little something extra. Her bio says that she loves green, birds and junior mints so I think I've covered all my bases. I even found note cards with her initial on them.

Rainbows

I finally ordered the MFT rainbow die, and boy do I love it! The card on the left is for a friend, and the one on the right is for my little chemo angel buddy. Have a great day:)

Faithful Friends


Pet loss cards are always the hardest for me to make, I guess because I'm such an animal lover and have a few of my own. My customer asked for a card to send to her vet clinic as a thank you. She cried when I delivered this to her, so of course I started to cry too....as much as I say I won't, I do...Every. Single. Time. I used a combo of MFT, CTMH and SU supplies.

I Wet My Plants!




This is the card I made for my chemo angel buddy this week, I saw the caption outside a garden center and couldn't wait to use it on a card. I hope she giggles when she reads it.
 I used MFT dies, a SU embossing folder and all paper is SU.

Cherry Blossoms


I made this card for my chemo angel buddy who lives in Nanaimo, B.C....I was inspired by all the beautiful photos my friends have been posting on facebook and Instagram. I used the SU Sheltering Tree stamp set - I love this set! Paper and ink are all SU as well.

My Kids

"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened" - Anatole France
That is one of my favourite quotes of all time. And these are two of my favourite animals, Chase & Gem patiently waiting for me to take them for a walk.

Dad


I wasn't too sure about this card when I picked the colours, but I'm really happy with how it turned out! Paper is all SU, stamps are from SimonSays, and I used the MFT Blueprint die-namics.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!


I look forward to making St. Patty's Day cards for my parents and my in-laws every year - it's tradition:) Enjoy your day, and may the luck of the Irish be with you!
