Hi Everyone! Happy Sunday!

So while I'm spending the day working today, I wanted to share some of my plans with you.

I've been spending lots of time checking out other bloggers, and specifically bloggers who are Stampin Up! demonstrators, and decided I'm going to go ahead and become a more 'active' demonstrator! I've actually been a Stampin Up! demonstrator for over a year now, but mostly used the perks for my own personal use. I just simply love the product!! So I've decided to share my love of the product with all of you! Having said that, I'm going to active my Stampin Up! website today! Which means for all of you Canadians out there reading this, you will now be able to order Stampin Up! products directly through me from my website 24/7........pretty exciting eh!!? I thought so!

If you like, I would love for you to sign up and follow me! I'm going to try and post a new project every couple of days, and I'll be listing all the information for you of supplies etc. Please be patient with me though, I find it very hard to take beautiful photos like all the other blogs I see! LOL!! I'll supply a picture, so you get the idea, but photographer is not in my repertoire!

So what do you think, are you as excited as I am about this? Leave a comment if you like, I'd love to hear from you guys, and keep a lookout for the link to my new Stampin Up! website, coming later today!!

Thanks again friends!!

My Valentine Wreath

Hi Everyone, how are you all doing? I'm much better today, not in a bah humbug mood anymore! I'm at home with access to my computer and photos so all is good in my world! LOL!! oh and I did receive that package from Stampin Up! so as soon as I am finished here, I'm off to make more goodies!

So today I'm gonna quickly share my Valentine wreath with you. I cut all the hearts with my Cricut (George cartidge) and used lots of different patterned Valentine paper. It took me awhile to get this done as it was a bit harder to stick the first few hearts onto the wreath than I thought, but once I managed that it was just a matter of layering!

So what do you think, kinda cute eh?
I'll be back with some more fun stuff to share! And by the way, am I not being so good so far this year? I'm actually blogging and updating on a regular basis, that's pretty big for me!

Thanks again for visiting, and you're welcome to leave any comments, I love reading them!

Take care,

Bah Humbug!

Ok so we've passed Christmas, but that's how I feel today! I took a bunch of pictures this morning to share with you, but never saved them to my computer! DOH!!! I had a Valentine wreath I made with my Cricut and a couple of cute birthday and Valentine cards I had made for some loved ones. Oh well. I'll have to try again tomorrow! Sorry about that, but please check back tomorrow, I should have my photos up by then!!

On a happier note, I'm excited to get home today. I'm pretty sure I have a package waiting for me from Stanpin Up! I ended up ordering the Sizzix Big Shot for all the incredible die cuts that Stampin Up! has. I ordered the cute little milk carton, the Baskets and Blooms die cut and one more, which I forget at the moment! LOL!! But I have big plans for that little milk cartoon! Gonna fill it with chocolate goodies for my kiddies for Valentine's day.........can't wait to decorate it!

Till tomorrow, take care!

Happy Birthday Card

Made this cute little card for one of my nephew's birthday. I saw a card similiar to this on someone else's blog, tweaked it a bit and voila......this is what I came up with! What do you think of the colours? Red, blue and brown, a different combo I think, but I really like them together. Something definately new and a bit bold for me!
I love punches, they are so quick and easy to use. I used the Martha Stewart cupcake punch for this card. I really like the design, think I'm gonna make a few more like this to sell in my much neglected Etsy shop!
Ribbon is Real red from Stampin Up! (109052)
Scallop punch (112091)
Real red cardstock (102482)
Chocolate Chip cardstock (102128)
Patterened paper was left over I had on hand
Take care!!!
