Crestomere Stampin' Up we made :)

Can you say crafting, laughing...what a blast. I had a great day yesterday with all of the club members from last year. I enjoyed a wonderful drive with my mom and then met up with good friends to craft. I loved everything we made yesterday.

This particular stamp on the card below, I can honestly say I didn't like it before I used it...but now I love it. I would love to try this card again, and press harder on the white crayon, to make the white lines more bold. It looks like it should be hard but it is so simple, and elegant. I also love the is so true. Live without regret.

This is a wonderful Mother's Day card. It was really cool using the Big Shot. It is another simply yet elegant card.
Card #3 is a Gift Certificate or Money Holder. It would make a perfect card for birthdays and christmas, thank you....anything really. This one was punches and using a Scor Pal. Another great card. I need more practice using a scor pal, but I have now put it on my wish list.

The monthly card which is done by a club member each month was done by Cari. It is an invitation card. We used the Cuttlebug and Stampin' Up plates from the Big Shot. My wish list is growing bigger now that I know that this stuff really works in my Cuddle Bug.
Thanks so much for such a wonderful day girls! I miss you but really enjoy the visits.
I really hope this post comes out okay, if not sorry...still learning...LOL!
Have a wonderful day and till next time keep smiling.

A Little Tinker Bell!

Good evening everyone! I hope that everyone had a good Easter Holidays. We sure did and now my kids are back to school tomorrow.

Today, I was lucky enough to join my mom for her monthly Stampin' UP club that she goes too out at Crestomere School. It was a blast as always. It is a place where there are not stop laughs, and just wonderful people to be around. When they were working on there Calendar page, I pulled out a one page layout that my crafting friend Lori gave me for my birthday. It was a really easy layout and took no time. The only thing I have left to do is use pop up dots on the butterflies. I used Diamond stickles on them and they are currently drying. I LOVE IT!!! :). Cute, Cute, Cute. I still have some paper left for other projects and some stickers too. You gotta love packages that give you left overs. Yahoooooo!

I was lucky enough to make some fanastic cards too today. I hope to put them on tomorrow for you.

Wishing you all a fanastic evening and morning tomorrow. May there be tons of love and laughter sent your way. Till next time keep smiling.

Egg-tra Fun....

Happy Easter to all of the bloggers out there. Tonight my family Rob, Tristan, Robin, Kaitlyn and myself decided we needed to do our annual tradition of decorating eggs. We usually do more but this year we are having Easter with just our family. It will be different, but fun I just know it.

To decorate our eggs we used hard boiled eggs, food coloring, vinegar and crayons. It was so much fun. The one I made is in the front row and has a flower on it. I did the coloring with a pointed stick, that way I could color each part the color I wanted. What you can't see is that there is a pot at the bottom of the flower. My camera was not working great tonight, so this is the only picture that turned out.

Wishing you all a wonderful Easter with your family and friends, I hope that each and everyone of you has tons of love and laughter.

Life Has Been Busy!

Hi Everyone!

Wow these last couple of weeks sure have been busy. I have been away at a AGM Conference with my husband. I have also helped plan a baby shower for one of my friends. It has been a little crazy.

We had a birthday party for my son. I was sick, so it made things a little interesting...LOL. My very good friend Lori came to see me on Tuesday with her kids. It was an amazing day and my birthday present was awesome. Please watch in the next couple of days. I hope to get another scrapbook page done (from a kit that I was given for my birthday) and hopefully a card too.

When in Calgary, I was able to see my uncle who is dying of a brain tumor. He lives in a hospice and it touched my heart and soul, that he can still play the music he loves with not to much trouble. He makes everyone smile and that is how I have always wanted to live my life. What a true blessing he is.

Now something I can tell you is I have done no crafting but I have finished reading Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah. I am almost done reading Perfect Match by Jodi Picoult. If anyone has a comment about any of these books please leave them. I love to read and talk about them too.

I will be back with something new and crafty so keep an eye out. I hope life has been kind to all of you lately and I will see you soon.

Keep smiling and tell someone you love them today!!! :)
