Mellow Christmas

Here is a soft looking Christmas card I did with
my friends. We all seem to like the non-typical
Christmas colors and the tree is embossed in Gold.
I really like this card.

Gift card holder

Here is a little gift card holder SUPER EASY to make.
Take a 4 1/4" x 11" CS, score at 3, 5 & 8 inches.
Fold to make in inverted V and glue three sides on the
inverted V. Take the wonderword punch on side and the circle
punch in the centre. The band measures 1" x 7".
Stamp and embellish as you wish.

Wow, this was fun and super easy! I usually take at least an hour for every single challenge or project - this one less than 10 minutes. That's a record for me. Note to Donna: You are welcome to borrow this set anytime.

My student's cards/Les cartes de mes eleves

These are two cards that were fabricated by my two shining students who always give their 110% efforts at my mother/daughter stamp club.

The 'Wanted' card was done by Shauna's Mom, Donna - and I think it is spectacular - it really got a 'wow' reaction from everyone when she showed this card to us. I just love how she draped that rope around and the colors are so soft and pretty. I grade this one
at 100%! Great job Donna!
The 'Fete' card was fabricated by Mai-Kim's Mom, Carole and she really outdid herself on this one. It was for Alys-Ann's 13th birthday and I just love the use of the flowers and the use of colors and the 3-d effects. I give this card an A+!

La carte intitule 'Fete' a ete fabriquee par Carole, la maman de Mai-Kim pour les 13 ans d'Alys-Ann, la grande soeur de Mai-Kim. Elle a fait une carte spectaculaire surtout avec le choix de couleurs et les effets 3-d. J'adore aussi les fleurs fusion.
50/50 Carole!

Here is a Christmas card I made for the Splitcoast Stampers Challenge. I used the new DP for the Holiday mini and embossed
the star from the Scandinavian stamp set in silver.

Beate's Weekend Sketch

This is my first Sketch Challenge with Beate John.
She is wonderfully creative and her blog is
truly inspirational. I see quite a few other bloggers
doing the week-end challenge and thought I should
try it too.

Jade's Room

When Jade was approaching the big TEN, we decided to re-do her room to have a more grown up look - gone were the princess colors, dollhouse and dolls to be replaced by I-Pods and docking stations, bulletin boards, queen size bed, etc. For her wall over her bed, she chose something from Stampin' Up's Decor elements with that beautiful bird. The frames I made for her to accentuate the red, black and white theme also with Stampin' Up! materials. I think she is pretty happy with the results.

Here is a simple little card for two challenges.
I was making this whilst watching the US
Presidential elections - holding my breath
anticipating the outcome.

SC200 & CC190 AND Jade's Birthday Card!

Boy oh boy - this is not two birds with one 'stamp' but three!
A sketch challenge, a color challenge and my daughter's birthday card. Is that wrong? But I'm pretty happy at how this card turned out - all soft and pretty just like Jade.

How to spend $150 in 30 minutes

Jade will be 10 this coming Wednesday and one of the things she really wanted to do is 'Build a Bear'. This is a super cute concept with picking and choosing your own little stuffed teddy and the most fun I think is picking out some of the cute little outfits for them with the accessories. So Jade and her best friend Mai-Kim chose the Zebras with funky little outfits. For the shoes, Jade picked out Skechers which actually light up when you tap them!
It was so much fun just watching them picking out all their stuff.
Jade called her Zebra Mimi and Mai-Kim called her Zigzag - how cute is that! Oooooh to be 10 again!!!

Devil in a red dress

Here is Jadygirl on Halloween night just before trick or treating.
The weather was spectacular for a Halloween night, nice and balmy to go door to door. I don't mind going along just as long as she shares her chocolates with me
