You're Cool Daddy-O!

Good morning!
It has been a blustery few days here
in central Alberta. We had a first on Tuesday
night; a weather warning was issued for 
a Snow Squall. Then they also posted a Wind warning at the same time.
Usually we have Blizzard warnings but
not to my knowledge a Snow Squall warning, here
in Alberta. The winds were crazy fast.
The sun has been out so that has been a blessing.
The wind is chilly and makes you want
to hunker down with a cup of hot chocolate
and good book/craft.

Over at Creative Knockouts we have a brand new challenge
and a fantastic sponsor for this weeks challenge.

Challenge #385 - Anything Goes
(easy peasy)
Our wonderful sponsor this week is
Prize: One digi set from the Esty Store
Thank you very much for letting
me highlight your image
and use one of your awesome sentiments.
My God Father had a beautiful classic
car like this one. It was a beautiful blue.
He was a man who loved nothing to fancy.
I loved going driving and picnic's in that car.

The image was colored using my copic markers
(I need to replace a few of my blues)
The yellow made me think of sunshine
and you miss anyone in a yellow car right.
The card design is just a clean and simple 
with a simple sentiment
"You're Cool Daddy-O!"

Please come and join us this week for a change to 
win! Show us your inspiration this week!
Creative Knockouts we want to see your inspiration!

Thank you for joining me today!
A smile from me to you

I simply adore cats and
my cats adore my trees.

When looking for paper to use
I went through a card box that my mom
had some of her Christmas papers in.
This one called to me because of the trees
and cat image. The layer behind the image
is the backing of the tree paper.
The Gingerbread charm used is also from my
mom's Christmas stash.
The stitched dies I used are from My Favorite Things (rectangles).
Prisma Colored Pencils were used on the image
as well as Wink of Stella (although, you can not see it...LOL)

My mom loved all holidays
but her favorite time of year was Christmas.
I am glad that some of her crafting stuff can be used

When making this card, I had a special someone in mind.
Our store/blog owner Denise; she adores her dogs. She also loves winter
and we have had quite a bit of snow already.
It made me think of them playing outside together.
Denise is a really awesome person and I just know
she is waiting for some snow.

The card above I used Copic Markers
to color the image, dies from both sets.
The other shapes from my old cut out stash.

Maybe Christmas Means A Little Bit More

Good morning to you!
Wow, Can you believe that it November already?
I am so happy that our clocks fell back 1 hour.
My body is so happy, that I have an extra hour of sleep.
Lot's of people don't feel the time change but I sure do.
We actually had a very beautiful Halloween weather wise.
The snow had all melted and it wasn't super windy either.
With that being said my brand new creation is all about

Today, I share my second Christmas card design

Christmas card.

it is a pretty clean and simple design.

Halloween Peeker Cat

Good morning everyone!
It is another chilly day here in central Alberta.
It is windy (-9 celcius but feels like -15)
and snowing a little bit.
I am afraid warmer jackets and mitts will be
pulled out. We (my family) are not ready for
the cold weather yet.

Happy Thursday!
we have a brand new challenge for you.
We are on 
Challenge #373
(If that isn't something you celebrate please
use this color combo)
Purple, Black, Orange and Green

Our amazing sponsor this week is 
Prize: $12 voucher or approximately 4 images 

Thank you for allowing me to color up
and high light this adorable image called
Halloween is going to be so different for everyone
at our house this year. I am looking forward to
it going back to the old way next year.

Halloween Peeker Cat was colored up
using Copic Markers.
I also used the color combo of 
Purple, green, orange and black
with my card stock.
Gina Marie Designs square die was used
to frame the digital image.
Then I embossed the orange, black and green
paper with stars (embossing folder and papers from Stampin' Up).
The base of my card is 5 1/4 x 5 1/4

It was so much fun coloring up this image.
I love Halloween but this year
am missing all of my mom's fun designs
for her trick or treaters. Her creativity was
simply inspiring and it brought me joy
at her excitement to see the kids
faces at their treat bags or boxes.

Please join us at Creative Knockouts
to share your wonderful creations
and for a chance to win some amazing images.

Happy Halloween

Happy Monday Morning!
We are a bit colder after this weekend
here in central Alberta.
We had our first snowfall on Friday.
I can honestly say, not ready for it yet.
Hoping it goes away soon for
some warmer weather
so we can to get some more yard work finished.

Today, I am here to share a
brand new Halloween card.
The stamps, I am using are from The Project Bin
The background layer with the pumpkin's was
hand stamped using the Pumpkin Spice set.
The Happy Halloween sentiment and the Ghouls with
the sentiment Boo! were used from the Cool Ghoul set.
The Cool Ghoul set also has two small ghost dies.
The paper is shimmery white has sparkles in it
but unfortunately, not visible in the picture.
It does add some pop to the background paper and the Ghouls.
A nice and flat card for mailing.

It is sad to say but this years Halloween
is going to look so much different.
Not too sure how many kids will be out trick or treating.
Our house, sadly doesn't look like we
will be handing out candy.
The first time, we have not done this.
It is so tough with COVID 19 to know what to do.
We will make up a baggy for our
grandson and figure out a fun way to do Halloween
with him this year.

Be sure to check out The Project Bin Blog.

Wishing you a very Happy week ahead.
Thank you for stopping by
and looking at this brand new creation.

Happy Mouse


Good, Good morning to blogger land!
It is hard to believe we are already at another Thursday.
I really feel like time is going at high speed.
Another busy week here in the Camp household.
We had a super awesome surprise late last night.
Our oldest son got to come home for Thanksgiving weekend,
from his work. He has been away for 3 weeks.
It was super great to see and talk to him.
Today, we have our wonderful grandson 
and get to see his parents as well, yay!
It sure does brighten up our week.

Today, I am sharing my DT card with you
We have a brand new challenge up today

Isn't he just the cutest.
Great for so many different kinds of cards.
This mouse sure is a happy one.

I used Copic Markers to color him up.
Gina Marie Designs dies when I cut him out.
Stampin' Up paper.
I might consider adding a sentiment
later on for the person I am giving it too.
Still up in the air about that.
The layout was very clean and simple.

Come and join us for our brand new challenge.
We would really love to see your Clean and Simple Designs

Hello Pumpkin


Hello Monday!
How was your weekend?
My weekend was pretty good.
I worked in my craft room unpacking
boxes, still tons to do but it is coming along.
We got to see our grandson, son and his girlfriend yesterday.
It was an awesome surprise.
Also, I had a long talk with 
one of my Auntie's was sure nice too.

Today is my day to bring you some
inspiration using The Project Bin Stamps.
The stamps being highlighted today are:
Eat Pie and Pumpkin Spice

The pumpkin was colored using Copic Markers.
The Pumpkin is open and then I stamped 
"I Never Met A Pumpkin I Didn't like" in the middle of it.
On the yellow paper, I used two stamps, so it says "Hello Pumpkin".
I used an embossing folder for my kraft paper 
then thought it would be fun to distress both papers.
It is a pretty flat card which makes it grate
for mailing out.

each week day for more inspiration from our
amazing DT.

It is coming up on Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada.
I would like to say a huge Thank you to
all of my followers and everyone else
who pops in and supports me.
I truly appreciate it.
We are so very grateful to our family and friends
who have supported us throughout this past year so far.

Wishing you a very happy day
and may you have time to get
your craft on.

Thank you for joining me.
