From My Head Tomatoes

 Good morning!
It sure has been a blustery,
snowy and very cold weekend here
in Alberta.
Sunday morning saw us waking up
to temperatures below -30
and the windchill at -45.
Can you say brrr...???
The fresh snow however does
look so pretty on the trees
and ground.
It is also a really good reason to hunker
down and stay inside.

Today, I am highlighting
the stamp sets

I chose this stamp sets for two reasons
1. I love the sentiments, images and dies
2. It reminds me of my grandma.

So much you can do with this set
you can use it for Valentine's Day
Just to say I love
at anytime.
Mix and match them with other
sets from The Project Bin.

On Feb 2
a very special and beautiful
lady in our lives gain her angel
wings, my grandma.
She lived to be almost 97
She loved her family and friends.

Grandma had a love for gardening
and her flowers.
Although, I never got her green thumb
gene, she was always weeding, watering and pruning.
Grandma loved to have a conversation
about it and the joy in her voice, just made your heart smile.
Her garden always had such delicious
food that came from it to the table.
The flowers she grew were always so beautiful
and vibrant. Tables of them in her living room.
It was the place she loved to be
working with her hands in the dirt.
Her love for nature was awesome.
I will for every cherish the memories
she has locked in my heart
and appreciate them so much.
Even of those times when I was getting in trouble
will forever be cherished memories.
So this card was made with my grandma
in mind, as she loved each and
everyone of her 7 kids, 25 grandchildren
40 great grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren
from her head tomatoes.
Please pop on over too The Project Bin Blog
where each week day their is more
crafting inspiration for you with these amazing

Wishing you a very blessed week
and may it also bring with it some
time to craft.

Thank you for joining me today.

Happy Valentine's Day

Good morning friends!
It has been a warm but also cold and blustery weekend.
We have had rain/freezing rain, snow, wind and melting.

What stamp am I highlight for The Project Bin today?
I am sharing with you In My Heart
It has  two dies
and seven stamps.

My card today is clean and simple
The heart was cut our with our heart
shape die and then stamped the
solid pink heart through the die cut
hole. After that, I took the
Happy Valentine's Day stamp
and stamped on top.

The color pink is used on this card
as it is my grandma's favorite color.

I then took the top panel
with the die cut heart shape 
and embossed it with an
embossing folder from
Stampin' Up.

I love the effects of the folder and started
adding a few pearls but before I new it
the whole panel was covered with bling.
Hopefully it isn't too much.

I love this time of year
as it is another reason to celebrate our
loved ones with cards or crafts.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

I Love You Even When.....

Good morning everyone!
It was a beautiful weekend with warm temperatures.
It was a busy week and weekend but tons of fun :)
I had sleep overs with some girl friends, visiting with family
we don't see much, watched some high school basketball (more visiting and laughing with parents). Visiting with our kids
it really was a wonderful week, filled with some tears and laughter. 
Oh and I received
happy mail too this week...yay me.
I am ready to start this next week, but once again I say
how did we get to the almost 15th of the month already?
Wasn't it just Jan 1st?

Today, I am super duper excited to share a brand new stamp
clear stamps, card making, Valentine's Day cards, cupcakes, smores, pudding cup, hungry, head tomatoes, paper crafts, sentiments, hand made cards, hand stamped cards, love, love notes, love cards, unique sentiments

 It was so much fun to pick a sentiment 
and which image I wanted to use on this card.
The whole time, I was making it, Emery my
grandson was on my mind.
He loves his yogurt/pudding and he loves us even
when we are a little slow at getting him a
snack when he is sooooooo Hungry.
The yogurt containers were stamped using three
different stampin up inks and the paper is from stampin' up as well.
The dies are from Gina Marie designs. The inside scallops was sponged
using the three inks.

I would like to enter my card into the following:

So many different kinds of cards you can make
for so many special people in your lives.
