Right, now it is a balmy -36 with a windchill of -48 this morning!
It was a quiet weekend at home.
The cold/flu has been running through the house this past week. Yuck!!!
So relaxing was on the agenda.

Welcome to my new followers and thank you
so much for joining me!

Today, I am highlighting the stamp set

My card below I stamped the hearts out 3 times
 colored them using copic markers (cut them out).
 then stamped the hand image out
broke up the I like you stamps to add it inside the heart.
I used a double stitched die and another stitched die 
from Gina Marie Designs
to highlight this very cute image.
It is perfect as the sayings are from Social Media 
You can use this as a birthday card, anniversary 
or just a plain old "hey how are you doin' " card.
 My second card for today
was made using the scraps from my first card.
It was so much fun to pull out a few more stamps
from The Gatest set.
The card below
I used the fire extinguisher, with the sentiment broken up
and stamped into each corner.
You'r Hotter Than Ever
Isn't it such a fun saying.
A perfect masculine card, a card for a firefighter..etc
So those are my two cards today
both had some fussy cutting on them
with the hearts and fire extinguisher.
The paper used was Real Red and Pacific Point paper
Images were colored using Copic Markers.
May you find sometime crafting this week
and if you don't craft
Happy Looking at all the fun and cool creations out there.

Hello friends,
Yesterday and today, have been very interesting.
Blogger and I have been having a bit of a love/hate
relationship when it comes to publishing my posts.
This post was to go up for my
The Project Bin Monday post, early yesterday
but that was a "No Go"
Now as an adventure we have a late night
The Project Bin Tuesday post.

The joys of technology but in all honesty
I won't complain too loudly as it is what allows 
me to share my creations with all of you.

So my darling hubby brought me home
some very, very happy mail.
The Project Bin has a brand new stamp set out
Unfortunately, I missed a friends birthday so
how perfect is this sentiment and image., puns, love, like you, stamping, clear stamps, sentiment stamps, hand made cards, hand stamped cards, paper crafts, clear stamps, pizza, belated birthday, spatulas, birthday
My card below was colored with Copic Markers
Image and sentiment stamped with Memento Ink
Dazzling Diamond glitter
Paper is from Stampin' Up 
and the dies used are from Gina Marie Designs and Sizzix.
Looking for fun sayings
and some cute images to go with them,
The Project Bin is the way to go!

Looking for more inspiration
and then hop on over to the shop.

Please stay tuned, I am excited to share some changes to 
my blog over the next several days and months.

From My Head Tomatoes

 Good morning!
It sure has been a blustery,
snowy and very cold weekend here
in Alberta.
Sunday morning saw us waking up
to temperatures below -30
and the windchill at -45.
Can you say brrr...???
The fresh snow however does
look so pretty on the trees
and ground.
It is also a really good reason to hunker
down and stay inside.

Today, I am highlighting
the stamp sets

I chose this stamp sets for two reasons
1. I love the sentiments, images and dies
2. It reminds me of my grandma.

So much you can do with this set
you can use it for Valentine's Day
Just to say I love
at anytime.
Mix and match them with other
sets from The Project Bin.

On Feb 2
a very special and beautiful
lady in our lives gain her angel
wings, my grandma.
She lived to be almost 97
She loved her family and friends.

Grandma had a love for gardening
and her flowers.
Although, I never got her green thumb
gene, she was always weeding, watering and pruning.
Grandma loved to have a conversation
about it and the joy in her voice, just made your heart smile.
Her garden always had such delicious
food that came from it to the table.
The flowers she grew were always so beautiful
and vibrant. Tables of them in her living room.
It was the place she loved to be
working with her hands in the dirt.
Her love for nature was awesome.
I will for every cherish the memories
she has locked in my heart
and appreciate them so much.
Even of those times when I was getting in trouble
will forever be cherished memories.
So this card was made with my grandma
in mind, as she loved each and
everyone of her 7 kids, 25 grandchildren
40 great grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren
from her head tomatoes.
Please pop on over too The Project Bin Blog
where each week day their is more
crafting inspiration for you with these amazing

Wishing you a very blessed week
and may it also bring with it some
time to craft.

Thank you for joining me today.
