Happy Birthday Glenn


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.

Snowy Fields


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

Country Church


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

Embossed Tattered Poinsettia


Distress Inks lightly to embossed die cuts. Found some Christmas carol sheet music from 2004, seemed a good match,distressed the edges and added Vintage Photo Distress Ink to edges and a bit Of Worn Lipstick Distress ink to the centre
