 Good morning!
School hasn't started yet
but we are having a cold running 
through our house.
Guess it is better to happen before school starts.

This past week has been good
I was able to see some very good friends
go to a wedding and see one of my aunties.
We are also in the process of moving
our middle son and his little family
so things have been a little extra 

and Kelly has an awesome challenge for us.

Challenge #313 - Something To Say

Our wonderful sponsor this week is

for the unicorns mane. Something a little different.

Birthday Girl!

 Good morning to everyone in blogger land.
Today, is going to be a bit of an emotional day
as our daughter registers for her last year of high school.
How did we get to grade 12 so fast?
It seems like it was yesterday that we walked her up
the steps to kindergarten. September 3 is when
it will really set in, hoping the tears stay at bay...LOL.

Today, is the last Monday of August
and I have whipped up this
clean and simple card design
using The Project Bin stamp sets
 I just love these two sentiments together
and thought that it would
be fun to stamp it right onto this
fun striped pattern paper.
Use a punch and die cut for some splash
and some pop with the flowers and pearls.
Over at The Project Bin blog they have 
inspiration for you Monday-Friday
so pop on over and see what my fellow
team mates have for you this week.

Thank you so much for joining me today,
Have a really blessed week ahead.

Sweet Friends Like You!

 Good morning!
We are back around to another Monday!
What??? Already half way through August.
Shaking my head saying "how did this happen so fast"

As it is Monday, 
here is another brand new creation
word art stamps,, Thanksgiving stamps, Fall stamps, Autumn, clear stamps, sentiments, pie, pumpkins, friendship, thanks, gratitude, card making, card ideas, hand stamped cards, hand made cards
Wonderful sentiments and images
 My card was made using some old punches
from Stampin' Up. Some scrap pieces 
of designer paper
and Gina Marie Design Dies
to high light
I wanted it too look like it is in an oval frame.
Friends are super important 
being in a frame with little banners
was my idea of 
making that sentiment front and center.
A few pearls and it was all done.
 The Fall like colors has been inspired by
our very, very cool temperatures this week.
At the higher elevations of the mountains
they got snow...yikes. I am so not ready for that.

Wishing you a phenomenal day/week ahead
thank you so much for poppin' onto my blog.

Thank you so much to everyone who sending me comments
it really does add a brightness to my day!

Phone Home

 Good morning to you!
We are on our last day of our long weekend.
It sure has flown by but what a good time
it has been. We shared laughter with friends and family.
Played cards, went swimming with our grandson
and his parents. 
The weather was a little scary on Friday night
so many other areas were affected within our province
with hail from quarter size to grapefruit size.
We were very lucky to have been on the edge
of those storm cells.
Our hearts are with all of the town/cities
that have suffered so much damage.
 The stamp set being used today
is called Milky Way
created by The Project Bin
I have used 4 sentiments,
3 of the stars
and our space ship image
from this set.
These sentiments remind me of the
movie ET and that is why I used them.
We all go through tough times
when we feel alone and don't call home.
We sometimes forget that others believe in us
and that they are here for us, we just have to let 
them be there.
 I colored the image with C00, C01, C03 and YR16, copic markers.
Then added silver fine glitter to the top of the image.
The image was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
The stars are stamped using 3 different shades of
Stampin' Up ink. Paper is also from Stampin' Up
I have used a star embossing folder on the black
background, it is tough to see, it is from sizzix.
The Cloud embossing folder is from Darcies (??)

We would love it if you would join us
day of the week. My fellow teammates
have amazing creations that are sure to inspire
you each day!

Thank you so much for
