I love Halloween, Mostly I love a reason to dress up silly or play with makeup. I have been working on the kiddos costumes and this got me in the mood to scrap last years photo. Plus I just got my hands on the oh sooooo fabulous brand new Seasonal Impressions cardstock from Core'dinations, it is B-e-a-u-tiful.
On another crafty note, it is almost that time of year again.........RETREAT TIME. In a few short weeks I will be headed back to the Wyldflower retreat for the 4th year in a row. This incredible facility is a relaxing getaway and every year it has just gotten better and better. I can't wait, there will be lots of crafty things to share when I get back.
In the mean time I am working on Birthdays, Building and Baby
Yeah that is me, the tired crafty lady. I feel like my blog has really taken a back seat. Sorry friends but thanks for sticking with me. The month of October is always a busy one with Thanksgiving, multiple birthdays and Halloween, add to that a newborn, a reno and building a house and you get a Momma walking around in a sleepy haze and thinking "what the heck was I thinking?". All that being said...............I am trying hard not to whine about it. because really, I have more than I could have ever imagined. Lesson of this year...........You can have it all, but I don't recommend having it all at once.
So here is where we are at..........Birthday invites. My little guy requested a forest party, so here are his party animals. These guys are cut with a file that I designed with my Klic n Kut. and cut out of Core'dinations Cardstock
For fun each one has a different colour hat
The house is finally starting to look like it should with details in the gables and some window trims done. I even planted a variety of trees to get them started. grass and more gravel will be the next step along with the thousands of other decisions yet to be made.
This little girl is growing fast, I swear every morning I wake up and she seems bigger.
Hello from the hop, I recieved this adorable stamp from Stampendous and he is the perfect size for stamping on Core'dinations Large Tags. He has been put to good use on this card, but also works great for goody and treat bags
Hey there friends, I hope that your Octobers have all started wonderfully. Mine is very full, there is much to be thankful for on this Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. I know that my blog has been slower, but I have been spending as much time with my family as I can and trying to find balance with my computer.
Last weekend my sister in law through me the most fabulous surprise baby shower, I was so grateful. This weekend I was determined to fit in some card making time and make some thank you cards.
The colour theme for the shower was beautiful apple green, so the cards continue with that inspiration. I used Core'dinationswhite wash with its subtle hues of purple for a soft babyish accent colour. All the Thanks sentiments are SRM stickers, I love those things, the adhesive just magically disappears, even on textured cardstock.
The smaller cards were cut out with my Spellbinders die and are for the guests that came to the shower.
The larger card is for my sister in-law. I reused the ribbon that she used in this creative and incredible diaper bike.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone, and happy world cardmaking day
I reside on Vancouver Island with my husband and 3 beautiful children. I adore all things crafty and live by a philosophy that has no regrets. I wear many hats and play a variety of sports. I love life to the fullest and relish every moment and encourage those around me to do the same.
