Happy Halloween

 Happy first Monday of October!
We are already on the 7th day of the month
and I must say the weekend
was pretty good weather wise.
We had a super fun sleep over with
our grandson and enjoyed
visiting with his mom and dad the next day
and yesterday.
I know Thanksgiving is coming up
this next weekend but alas
what came to mind was to create
a Halloween card for our grandson Emery.
High lighting two of The Project Bin stamp sets.
 So I left the little space ship not colored because 
I sparkled it up, alas you can not see this in
the pictures. In my mind it was air crystals
from the galaxy as it must be so cold up there.
It really does look cute.
In both of these stamps set's their are dies
to cut out the ghoul and the space ship.
The sentiment in this awesome font
is from Cool Ghoul
The square border die that has the stitched
rectangles is from Gina Marie Designs
and the paper is from Stampin' Up!
I used a clear/gold Wink of Stella pen for the sparkle.

Come and check out blog at The Project Bin
from Monday - Friday
we have brand new inspiration for you!

Love Needs No Words

 Good morning!
It has been a rather cold weekend in Alberta.
Some areas have received their first snow fall of the year
and boy has it been a doozy.

Today, I wanted to high light
two different stamp sets
Spring Zen is where the cross comes from
Spencer's Set is where I found a sentiment.
 This is a different kind of sympathy card.
People know just how much we care
and we love them so much but sometimes
during such difficult circumstances
their just are no words but
the special people in our lives know.
Just how much we love them because we are there.

This however, doesn't have to be a sympathy card
God, doesn't need to use words to let us
know how much we are loved by him.
"Love needs no words"

Please join us Monday - Friday over at our blog
my fellow Design Team members will not disappoint 
you for inspiration.

Thank you so much for joining me.
Have a fantastic day
May it be filled with many blessings.

They are letting me highlight

Prize: 3 Images
 I chose this image to high light
because it reminds
me of some very special girls
who are wonderful photographers.
This card was made for one girl in
mind as she has such stunning pictures.
When I saw this digi
Ceri popped into my mind.

Hoping she likes this card.

The image was colored by Copic Markers
I dug into my stash to use
ribbon and left over scrapped papers.

 Good morning!
This past week has been busy crazy
but their has been some real
We got a chance to see my college bestie and her family
on Friday/Saturday
and watch her daughter play volleyball against ours.
(it has been a couple of years)
It was also beautiful
to see my nieces wedding photos/video, it truly was an
amazing day and warms my heart
to see everyone so very happy!

So see these special people in my
life although, we don't talk often
or see one another often, touched my heart.
I love them all dearly and life has
a way of being so busy
that connecting just doesn't seem to happen
for either sides.

So my card was created with these friends in mind.
The Project Bin had the perfect sentiment
#bff stamp set
and the heart die is from

 As you can tell the last few
cards, that have been made are 
with more fall colors.
I do love it when the trees change colors
and the richness just makes
me want to curl up with
a cup of hot chocolate.

Be sure to join us each day on The Project Bin blog
my talented DT friends will inspire you.

Thank you so much for stopping by
Have an amazing week ahead

Keep Sake

 Happy first Monday of September!
One more day of Summer  holidays for our Kaitlyn and Summer
then they are back into school.
Volleyball tryouts and a busy schedule ahead.
This weekend we went from a household of 6
down to 3 as we moved Robin, Summer and Emery
into their new place.
It is sure to be a very exciting week ahead
for everyone.

The stamp set,
I want to  highlight today is called
clear stamps, photopolymer stamps, sentiments,, keepsake cards, stamping, paper crafts
It is a brand new set
that has one large sentiment
and then two small stamps
I am thinking that it would be fun
to put this in a picture frame
or put it on a nicely stained piece of wood 
and then seal it on.

This was inspired by my mom
she is an amazing crafter who has taught
me so much over the years.
She makes 300-400 cards a year,
that she gives to family and friends.
Birthday's, Anniversary's, Easter, Halloween (kids that come to the door),
Valentines Day, Christmas.
Each one unique and different.

Something no matter what it is should be treasured because
they are simply made with a whole lot of

Hop on over to The Project Bin Monday-Friday
and see even more inspiration with these wonderful stamps.

Birthday Girl!

 Good morning to everyone in blogger land.
Today, is going to be a bit of an emotional day
as our daughter registers for her last year of high school.
How did we get to grade 12 so fast?
It seems like it was yesterday that we walked her up
the steps to kindergarten. September 3 is when
it will really set in, hoping the tears stay at bay...LOL.

Today, is the last Monday of August
and I have whipped up this
clean and simple card design
using The Project Bin stamp sets
 I just love these two sentiments together
and thought that it would
be fun to stamp it right onto this
fun striped pattern paper.
Use a punch and die cut for some splash
and some pop with the flowers and pearls.
Over at The Project Bin blog they have 
inspiration for you Monday-Friday
so pop on over and see what my fellow
team mates have for you this week.

Thank you so much for joining me today,
Have a really blessed week ahead.

Sweet Friends Like You!

 Good morning!
We are back around to another Monday!
What??? Already half way through August.
Shaking my head saying "how did this happen so fast"

As it is Monday, 
here is another brand new creation
word art stamps,, Thanksgiving stamps, Fall stamps, Autumn, clear stamps, sentiments, pie, pumpkins, friendship, thanks, gratitude, card making, card ideas, hand stamped cards, hand made cards
Wonderful sentiments and images
 My card was made using some old punches
from Stampin' Up. Some scrap pieces 
of designer paper
and Gina Marie Design Dies
to high light
I wanted it too look like it is in an oval frame.
Friends are super important 
being in a frame with little banners
was my idea of 
making that sentiment front and center.
A few pearls and it was all done.
 The Fall like colors has been inspired by
our very, very cool temperatures this week.
At the higher elevations of the mountains
they got snow...yikes. I am so not ready for that.

Wishing you a phenomenal day/week ahead
thank you so much for poppin' onto my blog.

Thank you so much to everyone who sending me comments
