Sealia Merbean & Penelope

Hi folks,


Just sharing a birthday card for one of our nieces who will be celebrating her birthday in February. I had fun with this one as I think it's perfectly okay to give this little merbean from The Greeting Farm hair that is anything but a natural hair colour.

Baby Balloon Animals

Hi folks,

Just popping in to share a recent card creation featuring the CTMH February Stamp of the Month "Balloon Animals" (S1602)






When I saw this stamp set, something about it just said that it would be perfect for a baby card. So, I made this one, reminiscent of a fun baby quilt using the Kaleidoscope paper collection from CTMH.

Never too late

Hi folks,


Just popping in to share another card I made at the Crop for Haiti for one of the challenges we had that day. This one is a card I made for a fellow member of our TOPS chapter who recently rejoined.

It's a little tongue in cheek but I'm sure she will get the humour behind it.



I wanted the white arrows and "today" on the overlay to pop a bit more so I layered some coordinating card stock and shimmer trim beneath them to highlight them a little more. I think it worked.

I also used a little more of the shimmer trim to attach the overlay to the card front.


card details:
- finished size: 4.25 x 5.5 inches, white card stock base
- patterned paper: CTMH "Kaleidoscope"
- stamp: Unity Stamp Co "Shit Together"
- embellishments: CTMH Shimmer Trim in Green and Pink, PML Overlay in white

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Mojo Monday 431 - Feeling Christmas-y

Hi folks,


I'm hoping to do a better of job of staying ahead of the game this year with my 2016 Christmas cards so I decided to whip up a few with this week's Mojo Monday 431 sketch.

I just played around with the paper combos and stamps so that each of the four cards would be a little different. Looking at the photos though, I see I might have to straighten a few of the wooden trees <grin>.

Hello Baby - Mojo 430

Hi folks,

Just popping in to share one of the cards I made at the Crop for Haiti here in Ottawa yesterday. It was a wonderful event held to raise funds to help build an art room in a school being built in Haiti. If there is one being organized in your community, I would encourage you to attend! Or even check out how you can get one organized in your own community!


I made a couple of baby quilts to be gifted soon to so I figured I should make cards to go with those quilts. Here is one of those cards.

January Promotions from Close To My Heart

Hi folks,

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful time welcoming 2016.

As it is the beginning of a new month, I just thought I would pop in and share the January promotions from Close To My Heart.

The January Stamp of the Month is "Beloved Bouquet"



As usual, you can pick up this D size set of 14 stamps for the full retail price of $21.25 or you can get it for $6 if you place a qualifying $50 order.

Here is some artwork from CTMH Home Office featuring this beautiful stamp set.




Be sure to stop by tomorrow when I'll share a card I recently created featuring this stamp set and one of the new paper collections from the new Seasonal Expressions Idea Book.

January is also National Paper Crafting Month and CTMH is celebrating by offering a special set of Picture My Life Pocket Scrapbooking Cards called "Live Your Day".



Check out the video here to see how to incorporate these cards into YOUR scrapbooking! I'm actually using mine in my Everyday Life Planner. I'll have a post in the coming days about what I've done so far with mine.

As always, thanks for stopping by!
