Mercy’s Tuesday Sketch Challenge #92

TGIF!!!  Happy Friday!  Yeah for the weekend, it has been a long busy week and all the boys have been sick with a nasty cold.  So far I have be able to avoid it, but my throat has been a little sore. 

Today’s card is for Mercy’s Tuesday Sketch Challenge #92.  I wasn’t sure if I wanted it to be a get well card or a thinking of you, so I left off the sentiment for now.  When I figure it out I will add one.

Paper: Basic Grey  Stamp: The Greeting Farm  Ink: A Muse, Copic markers  Accessories: Nesties, EK punch, Button, Twine, Ribbon, Pearls. 

That’s it for me today, I hope you have an excellent day and thanks for stopping by!

Thinking of You

Happy Tuesday!  Today’s card is for Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps challenge #5, embossing!  I had fun with this card by popping Lantern Rin up, the fussy cutting was a bit of a challenge at one point, but I powered on!   Just don’t ask Lee what he heard coming from my craft space!  LOL

Paper: Websters Pages  Stamps: Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps, CTMH sentiment  Ink: Amuse, Distress Ink, Copic markers  Accessories: Pearls, Cuttlebug, Spica glitter pen.

I am going to go and hang out with Lisa today and do a little stamping and have some yummy coffee! 

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!


Happy Monday!  It was way too hot this weekend to make cards,  when it gets this hot I just don’t have the energy to do anything!  I made this card a little while ago and never got around to posting it!   I wasn’t sure about a sentiment so I have left it blank for now but I am thinking a ‘thinking of you’ type thing might work well.   I also used Sweet Sunday Sketch #71 for my card.

Paper: Basic Grey  Stamp: Magnolia  Ink: Amuse, Copic  Accessories: Jute, Button.

We are supposed to get some nice cool weather today, I really hope so!  It is great to finally have some hot weather but I could use a rainy day to catch up on chores inside and get some stamping done!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Wish you were here

Happy Monday!  One full day of school left and then it is summer vacation! Yeah!  I can not wait for the lazy days and not having to get up early.  I’m sure by the end of the summer I will be ready for the kids to head back to school but for now I am loving it!   My card today makes me think of lazy summer days, reading and relaxing.  🙂

Paper: October Afternoon  Stamps: Stampavie, The Greeting Farm  Ink: AMuse, Copic markers  Accessories: Prima flower, Pearls.

I will be in  Kamloops for a few days, my mom needs to have surgery today so I will be looking after her.  I have packed lots of images and my markers and am ready to colour up a storm while I am here, hopefully I get lots done!

I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Thinking of you and smiling

Happy Tuesday!  I just have a quick post for you today, I have been feeling a little off the last few days and I am hoping it is nothing.   I think I just need to relax and get a little more sleep. 

On to my card, as I said yesterday I am really loving the new October Afternoon paper pads.  I even managed to make a more masculine card with my darling Edward!

Paper: Bazzill, October Afternoon  Stamps: The Greeting Farm, CTMH  Ink: Amuse, Distress Ink, Copic markers  Accessories: Jute, Nesties, Button.

I am looking forward to Glee tonight, I that show!  But before I have fun I have a bit of running around to do, if I am lucky I will be able to sneak in a nice nap this afternoon! 

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
