It’s my brother’s birthday today and his wife always puts on a spectacular meal, so we will all get together again! Hope he likes his card

Merry Christmas!

Our daughter is home visiting for Christmas, and this is the sweet card she made for us!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas . We have been enjoying many days of visiting, baking, relaxing and enjoying the weather that has warmed up from the -38 days(in the week prior to Christmas) to just -10 and -15 these last few days.

Wishing all of you good health and much happiness in 2014!

Mini Scene Place Cards

The resident’s Christmas family supper is tomorrow, and nothing like a little procrastination to get me motivated! I wanted to make place cards but left it until tonight…but I am happy with how they turned out. I heat embossed various combinations of scenes with white embossing powder then various combinations of distress inks.

As you can tell, I really enjoy creating scenes with my Stampscapes stamps!

Double time stamping and layering keeps this card serene

Christmas Auction

I put together these 10 Christmas cards and donated them to our local Health Centre’s Christmas auction which benefits the long term care residents. Imagine my surprise and delight when they sold for $150! We live in a very community minded town and people are very generous to support local causes.

Joy To The World

Simple heat embossing for stamped image and dry embossed background.

The stars cut on the Silhouette which makes it quite fast to frame a shape using the nesting shapes
