Cute Birthday Mouse

 Hello and welcome to my blog!
Can you believe we are on the last Thursday
of January. Now, some people
think that this month has taken forever to disappear
but to me it has just flown by.
January is a month with so many birthdays
in it family and friends.
It has been so much fun celebrating
them all!
This month has also had so many people
pass away suddenly and that has been really
hard on so many people.
My thoughts are with them all.
Now let's get to why you are stopping by.

Today, we have a brand new challenge up over at
Challenge #335 - Birthday Wishes
our amazing sponsor is
https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/HettyClare
They have kindly let me color up
Prize: 4 images
 My card is pretty clean and simple.
I used some of my favorite colors,
red, pink and brown.
The image is colored using
Copic Markers
Gina Marie Design Dies were used to highlight
the image on both the white and early espresso paper.
Rose Petal dies were used for the Happy Birthday
A Stampin' Up punch for the banners and white/early espresso paper and pearls.
The pattern paper is from Little Darlings Paper

Come on over and join us this week.
I would love to be inspired by your creations.

A Sailor Is An Artist...

Hello, Hello, Hello
and welcome to my blog!

Today, is what I consider my Project Bin Monday.
Do you know what stamp set this is?
It is called Anchors Away
It has 5 really awesome sentiment stamps!
sailing, nautical stamps, clear stamps, theprojectbin.com, stamping, paper crafts
The perfect inspiration stamp set
and it can truly be used for anyone.
My husband has always wanted to sail
and when I saw this, it just makes
me think that on the water he would be that
artist, using the wind and water to create
a masterful design.
One day, I hope that Rob is able to check
this off of his bucket list.
The is retired Stampin' Up pattern paper and I used
their oval stitched dies.

Come join us over at The Project Bin Blog

We Can Adjust The Sails

Good morning!
Incredible to notice that the month of
December is already half over and that we only
have 10 days till Christmas.
My goodness, we still need to do some Christmas
shopping for our presents and supper
for Christmas Day.
The last few weeks of 2019 are just going to fly by.

The stamp set, I am sharing with you today
is from The Project Bin
and it is called
Anchors Away

Times are changing for us in our house hold
some good changes and some not so good which add to the
roller coaster of life.
This sentiment really spoke to my heart today.
Although it isn't a Christmas card, it just felt
so right to share.
This sentiment can be used at anytime of the year.
Stamp set: The Project Bin : Anchors Away
The card above was colored using Copic Markers.
All dies used are from Gina Marie Designs, Craftin' Desert Divas, Sizzix.
The paper, twine and pop-ups are all from Stampin' Up.

Please be sure to hop on over to the blog to share you love
for my fellow DT's and to check out the daily inspiration.

Season's Greetings

 Happy Monday morning friends!
It is only -7 but feels more like -14 with the wind chill
but it could be soooo much colder.
How was your weekend?
We had a great Saturday spent
shopping with our daughter. It doesn't
happen very much as she is always busy.
Guess the business is preparing us
for when she leaves home, what it will be like.
Also it was nice to start some Christmas shopping too...yay!!!

(snowman and tree)

Four stamps were used from the North Pole set
(Sentiment, mail stamp, North Pole words, sign)

The coloring was done using Copic Markers,
Wink of Stella was used for the sparkle of the snow
(sorry couldn't capture it with my camera, it does look cute)
Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder.
Memento Ink was used to stamp the words and images.

in my head then what it actually looks like.
Do you ever have that happen?
