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.

Today, is Thrusday
and Kelly over at Creative Knockouts
has a brand new challenge for us this week
Challenge #323 - Border Time

Our Sponsor this week is Di's Digi Stamps
thank you so much for sponsoring us.
Prize: $6 voucher
This sentiment is so perfect for so many family
and friends, who need to be reminded
of it is okay to take a break.
This cable sweater type embossing folder
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)
 is colored up using Copic Markers.
To follow our challenge, dies were used
and an embossing folder to make
some fancy borders around the image.
The die companies used are Gina Marie Designs (square)
Spellbinders (scalloped ovals)
Stampin' Up (stitched ovals) and (embossing folder)

Today, I will take a break with our grandson
and enjoy some time with him.

to see what inspired you this week.
Wishing you a great day
and hopefully a bit of time for you!

Hand Made Just for You

 Happy 1st Monday of November
Many people are not excited about the "Fall Back" 
time change but I am just ecstatic
because this is where my body feels comfortable
with the extra hour of sleep.
We had fun watching our daughter volleyball tournament
this weekend, visiting my dad in his new home,
and celebrating our sons girlfriend Summer
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.

to high light a stamp set from

I used my Misti to stamp
both of these sets onto my card stock.

Gina Marie Designs.
