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.

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!!!

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.

It took me a bit to figure out this design as it was different
in my head then what it actually looks like.
Do you ever have that happen?

Feline Better?

Good morning! It is the first Monday, in December. It is hard to believe the count down to Christmas is on. We had our first Christmas dinner celebration yesterday. It was good to see everyone in the family who was able to attend.  Although, there just wasn't enough time to talk to some which has made me sad.

Are you ready for what stamp set, will be high lighted today for The Project Bin!
This is an oldie but a brand new set for me, it is called Feline Good. Now this set comes with two dies, with the images and sentiments.

The image was colored up with Copic markers and then it was decided that some different shapes should be used and textures to complete this card.

I used some different lighting, it is a little tough to see the Feline Better? sentiment. It is cute though.

Please hop on by to The Project Bin Blog for more inspiration from Monday-Friday! You will not be disappointed as they inspire me weekly with their masterful creations.

Have an amazing week and thank you so much for stopping by today.

You're Kinda Pawsome

Good morning!
November is flying by.
We had a busy weekend watching our
daughter play in her very last 
volleyball tournament for zones.
We were hoping that they would move onto 
Provincials but alas it wasn't meant too be.
Hard to believe no more high school volleyball.
We are hoping to still have some
club volleyball to watch.

Today, I would like to show case
the stamp set from The Project Bin
It comes with 9 clear stamps and two dies.
It also comes with 9 clear stamps
The sentiment comes in one straight line
but I took the opportunity to break it
up into 3 lines.
I colored up the dogs using Copic Markers
added some texture by using an embossing folder.
 I used several different size of dies
to help create a spot
 that the dogs are all around.

Come and join us during the week for more inspiration.
We have brand new ideas Monday - Friday
on our blog

 Hoping that you enjoy these little puppies
hanging out.

Thank you so much for stopping by
and please have a blessed week ahead!

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.

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)

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.

The black ink is from Memento Ink.

Gina Marie Designs.
