Of all things....

Good morning my friends!
First off, I would like to take a moment to remember
all of those who served our country,
to give us freedom.
To remember those who never made it home
and those who did but were/are never the same.
I would like to remember those
who continue to serve and protect our country.
Thank you to the families
mothers, fathers, wives, children, cousins
aunts, uncles, who continue deal with/supporting their loved
ones being away from home
and sometimes never coming home.
Today and everyday we Remember
your sacrifices.

My new card that I made today,
had me thinking about Remembrance Day!
For everyone who sends their loved
ones away, that moment when they return
 home, I am so very sure the best
things their arms have held is that person.

The stamp set is from 

 This stamp set has two dies two go
with several of the stamps.
 I chose to stamp this sentiment
into the middle of the heart.
 So many pictures again today,
I have been playing around with filters 
on my phone and thought
to share a few with you.
 I used wink of Stella clear/gold
over top of the heart to make it 
sparkle but it did change the 
color of the ink slightly
The paper I used 
basic black and Whisper White
is from Stampin' Up.
The pattern paper is from BoBunny
I used a square punch to make
my cut into the flag.
Be sure to check out our
daily blog
for much more inspiration!

I would really like to wish you
a great day!
Thank you so much for taking the time to
join me today!
Many blessing being sent your way and a smile too!

Take A Break....

Good morning!
It has been a little bit of a chilly week
as we have some snow, that has stayed on the ground.
The roads were not very good Monday night or Tuesday
Wednesday in some areas were still very icy.
We didn't get tons of snow but it rained some
before it started snowing.
It definitely feels like winter at the moment.
I will be breaking out a cup of hot chocolate today.
Tonight we go and see our daughters
final league game of her high school career
for volleyball. It is one more reminder that
high school is going by way too fast.

This sentiment is so perfect for so many family
and friends, who need to be reminded
of it is okay to take a break.

was to add to the comfort of
having a cup of something nice and hot
coffee, tea, hot chocolate...
This cute, cute image (Coffee Mouse by Gerda Stiener Designs)

this weekend, visiting my dad in his new home,
and celebrating our sons girlfriend Summer
as she received 4 scholarships and one award for top marks
for Math 30-2. We are so incredibly proud of her.
It was also so much fun
having everyone home for Halloween :)
Truly an amazing weekend.

I See Real People....Boo!!!

Happy Monday, my friends!
It is really hard to believe this is 
the last Monday for the month of October.
Did someone put the days on
a time warp dial.
Our weather has been very chilly here
this weekend. We were lucky
to only have a wee bit of snow so far.
Hopefully Halloween will be warmer 
for our little Trick and Treats.

Since it is Halloween this week,
my thought was to high light 
the stamp set from The Project Bin

 I love seeing little ghosts.
When our grandson was here a couple
weekends ago he looked outside
and said he saw one, so
Emery inspired me to make this card.

It is a clean and simple card
Cool Ghoul
has 8 fun sentiments, two ghost stamps
with matching dies.
The web and paper are from Stampin' Up

Be sure to stop by THE PROJECT BIN SHOP
for tons of inspiration!
These stamps are incredible
and fun to work with!

Thank you so much for joining me today
I would like to thank everyone for your wonderful
comments, they mean a lot.

Have a blessed week ahead!

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.

Anything Goes

Our wonderful sponsors for this week are
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.
Paper is from Stampin' Up
The clouds embossing folder is from Darcie.

I adore the image of the lighthouse
in the lens. It reminds me of  one of the 
lighthouses in Prince Edward Island.

this week. We would love to see your inspiration.

Thank you so much for joining me.
