YNS Inspiration Post ~ Thankssss!

Hey everyone!  We are starting something new this month over on the YNS blog, on the 22nd of each month we will be doing a little inspiration post featuring some older sets that we love but might be a little neglected by all the new stuff each month!  I love it when I go back and look at my stamps and see one I haven’t used in a while that I love, and it inspires me to get inky! You can always find more inspiration on our YNS Facebook page, YNS Pinterest page and our challenge blog.

For my card today I have used Monty the Snake to make a fun thank you card, something I am lacking in my stash of cards right now.

Farm Fresh Friday ~ Thankful

Happy Friday everyone!  It is Farm Fresh Friday at The Greeting Farm and today’s theme is Thankful.  But I have a sad announcement to make before I get to my card.  I have decided that it is time for me to step down from the Farm.  It has been an AMAZING 2 years, a dream come true for me, but it is time to move on.  I am so thankful that I have been given the opportunity to work with so many wonderful and talented women over this time, and have made some truly special friendships.  Thank you Marie and Jessica for having me, I love you both!

Okay, onto my card for today.  When I originally picked the theme for this week’s challenge I was thinking more of Canadian Thanksgiving that is coming up  in a couple of weeks, not my leaving, but I think it worked out very well.

You Make Life Sweet!

Hey everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, we had a great weekend with my Mom and Step Dad here with us.  I finally got a little time to stamp yesterday while the boys were off playing all the new video games.

I was sorting through a bunch of my stuff and realized I haven’t used my Fancy Miss Anya’s in ages.  Really, I wish there were more hours in a day to play with all the stamps in my stash!  I also used the December Sketch for you to try for my card today.

I am going to try and get a little more time in my room today, I want to get a few cards done before school starts again next week!  I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Thanks So Much

Hey everyone, happy Thursday!  I made up this card the other day for Liam’s teacher at school.  She is one of the best teachers we have had, so I wanted a special card just for her.

I stamped Geek but Unique  on to Copic X-press it and colored the image with Copic markers, finishing it off with a little bit of glossy accents to add some shine to his glasses.

I am going to be running errands this morning and then getting some cards put together later this afternoon.  We are heading to my Mom’s again for the Canada Day long weekend, now I would just love to see some nice weather to arrive for it!  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
