Funny how I woke up this morning and it was all gone,Thank goodness! So DH went to get the mail and this pretty planner that I won from Angel's blog was in the mail! Isn't it gorgeous,it's a 2 year planner,I just love the colors she used and to top it off...there's a beautiful butterfly! Thanks so much Angel,I've already put in my important appts in it! Angel has an awesome blog just like you all do my friends so if you'd like to pay her a visit,you'll see her great talent! Hope you all have a super friday!

Just for you!

Happy tuesday peeps! I made a card last night,one of my favs,an easel card. The card base is SU soft suede & I used the Greenhouse garden set stamped in soft suede and crushed curry,the For you is also stamped in soft suede mounted on creamy caramel cs. I also made a flower from the Build a blossom set for the inside of the card. Added a ribbon and voila. It took longer to make that flower than it did to make the whole card,lol. So not much planned for today. Since we moved here a week ago,I am getting alot of pain in my joints,this house is an older home and very humid. And I woke up with a MIGRAINE today!!!! Oh well,hopefully it'll go away soon. Hope you all have a terrific tuesday and Thanks for coming by! Hugs,Diane

Monday monday!

It's monday already,where did the weekend go??? Well,I got to play a bit on sunday evening. Made a couple of cards. This one is from the SU Just believe set, I seem to use this one quite often. I used some older cs I had from SU,and Heat embossed the flowers and saying in glittery black (looks real nice IRL). Added a sating ribbon & some black pearls and there you have it! I think it turned out pretty nice. So today we did alot of running around,changing addresses and groceries and now I'm sitting down enjoying a cup of coffee,(love my Kurig coffee machine) and now I will try to visit some of my friends and maybe see if I can enter a challenge,haven't done that in such a long time. Have a great rest of the day and I'll try to do the same! Hugs,Diane

We're all moved!!!!

Well I'm still alive!

I hadn't moved in 9 1/2 yrs and hope not move again anytime soon. Gee I hate moving,especially when you are just renting. Maybe next time we move it'll be ours. We're almost all settled in,we had lots of help and my DH is doing all the hard work and won't let me do any lifting or stretching.

I haven't played yet but this was a card I had done before we decided to move,it was done so quick!
My DH had to quit for health reasons,he's OK,but will need some time to get his health back on track.
And that meant getting out of that building which he took care of for almost 9 yrs.

Anyways,on to the card...It's one of my new SU set
Easter Blossoms which was stamped on the Top note die and used Melon Mambo cs and inked the little girl in the same ink color. Used MS icicle punch to do the grass and the ribbon is from Michaels. So I hope to be able to play again soon,my room is almost all set up. There's a big window and a patio door to the backyard,therefor lots of light in here which I love!

Have a great weekend my friends and I'll be visiting as soon as I can! Today is address changing day,yucky!!! Smile!

You're too kind

Happy Saturday my friends!

Today's card is all SU product. I've been using some old & new products I have,experimenting,having fun.
I used the 2 step technique,not sure if you can see it in the pic,the flowers on the crumb cake cs are stamped in pumpkin pie and crumb cake,the dp are scraps I had,punches are all SU and the sentiment is from oh I have to check...Whimsical Words,I should of known that,I use that set so often,just love it!
I lied,it's NOT all SU,the border punch isn't. I did not own one SU border punch but did receive one on thurs in my order so I will use it in the future.

Not much planned this weekend for us. Maybe I'll get to play a bit,not sure.
Watching the news is so depressing,those poor people in Japan. Lets pray for them!

Have a great weekend,Hugs,Diane

Build a Blosson in Blue!

Happy Friday!

A quick post for today,so many things to do!

I got my SU order on wed and this is one of the sets in there,I couldn't wait to get it "Build a Blossom". As for inking the petals,I used pacific point for the outside and the inside was sponged with tempting turquoise,I added some navy ribbon and brad and the dp is from a pad I rec'd in my starter kit. I also sponged the contour of the confetti white cs in navy blue. Oh and I
used my new SU corner punch on the dp and will add a sentiment when needed!

That's it for today,I'm off to get some work done!

I wish I was a Butterfly...

Beautiful butterflies!!! You know how much I love butterflies and some of you know what they mean to me!
Thinking of my Donor,I made this card with he or she in mind.This is the card I had embossed with my homemade
template. I added some dp butterflies over it and some SU dies in cs. Used my gel pen for the dots and a couple of brads. You can't see it in the pic,but I sponged the contour
of the card in white,didn't put a sentiment,will wait to see
what I'll use the card for.

DH & I had a crazy stressful couple of days...hope it gets better!
Tomorrow is friday,that's a good thing!
Have a good day! Hugs,Diane

Reveal to my Secret Pal

Well,I made another stationary box. The ladies at Tops just loved the 2 that I brought in for a donation. Some ladies asked if I would sell some.Wellllll for the amount of time put into them,they would never pay the price. So I will make them once in awhile as gifts. This one is for my Secret Pal which we are revealing tonight. I noticed last week she really liked the ones I brought in so I decided to make her one. Hope she likes it!

Here's a little sample of what's inside.

I used some old SU paper i had been hoarding,love it. I added a post it note instead of a note book like the other set I had done.
It's a beautiful sunny day,but I'm going for a snooze,just drained out today and don't know why cause I haven't overdone anything.
Sometimes you just have to listen to your body,and he's telling me to go for a snooze,so I'm going to listen for once,lol!
Have a great tuesday my friends!

Is Spring here yet?

Well Monday is here again! And it's a nice and sunny here in Timmins! Cold but sunny!

So today's card is s Spring one,I can't wait for those tulips to come out,first sign of Spring to me! It's been a long winter and we still have a couple of months of it too!
I get to enter it in a challenge which I haven't done in a long time,BY THE CUTE & GIRLY monthly challenge this month is SPRINGTIME,i think this qualify.
Thanks for the heads up Lisa!

So for today's card I used a WOJ image from SCS colored with Pro Markers.The papers are old and don't know where I got them,the cs is SU groovy guava which I still have. The sentiment is from Michael's,used a nestie which I spunged in Pumkin pie,so is the sentiment,added some bling and a couple of punched flowers to hold my easel card open and voila.

Hope you'll have a great day! I have a headache so I'll take it easy,try to finish off some 3x3 notes which I need to finish off another stationary box I started yesterday.

Have a good one,Hugs,Diane

Takes alot of patience...

Happy Saturday my friends!

Takes alot of patience to glue all these Itsy BittyBits! I bought the set quite some time ago and never did anything with it. So I finally took it out.
Used all SU products,The sentiment is from the Sale-a-bration,used cherry cobler cs and ink,
punched the butterfly in white and sponged it,added some pearls and a bling on the butterfly.
Ta-da,another simple card,not the gluing part though,lol!

Today I plan to clean a bit in here,cause i can only see part of the screen,can't see the desk at all,but hey,I got alot of cards done!
That's a good thing right!!!
Have a great weekend everyone! Like some of you say...HAPPY STAMPING!

Less is More

Happy Friday!!! Can you believe it! I can't...

Well today's card is a simple one but I really like it. Less is More like they say,the image is a colored digi from the Help Katie package that I had purchased. I love those flowers,they look 3-D
don't they. The cs is SU old olive and the ribbon is also SU.

So I did the bloodwork this morning,didn't want to get up but I have no choice. So I was out the door at 6:45,out of there by 8:00,came back home and went back to bed til 9:30. Had to run errands at the bank,get prescriptions...then came back home. Gee whiz,now I'm ready for a nap,but won't do that cause I won't sleep tonight.Just can't win huh! Lol! So I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Here's a little Bearthday card for a little girl,which little girl,I don't know yet but I'm sure I'll use it eventually!

It's the Beary Best Friends set from SU and the Sentiment is also from SU,Beary Nice Wishes. I paper pieced her dress,hat,balloon and gift bag to match the dp bg. The tag is a nestie tied up with a brown org ribbon.

I was suppose to go for my monthly bloodwork this am but just couldn't get up. I've been having a hard time with my sleeping AGAIN,so I def have to go tomorrow morning. I try everything,less coffee,tea,warm bath...if I don't take my full sleeping pill (which I am trying to get off of),I just can't sleep. Oh well,it's a small price to pay to be alive!!!! At least I can try to sleep whenever I want to,I'm still not back at work,so it makes it easier on me.

Anyways! Have a super rest of the day!
Hugs to all of YOU!!!
