I was pretty excited to find out that my friend Greta popped a card in the mail for me! Knowing that there is snail mail due to arrive I usually peek out the front window waiting for the mail man to drive up and watch to see if it looks like bills or fun mail being dropped in our box. A few times he caught me peeking so I just smile and wave (how embarrassing ... lol). Well I missed stalking the mail man the day Greta's card arrived as I overslept and had to dash out the door. So I had a lovely suprise waiting for me once I returned home. Greta cards are always so beautiful and full of special details. The embossing and distressing adds so much texture to her design and the added flowers are a gorgeous touch! I am totally spoiled to receive this wonderful package. Thanks soooo much Greta! :)
A few projects to share today. A little pot of spring flowers inked in weather wood and spun sugar. I really love this big flower set, the flowers are just so cheery. The center of the flowers are raised on pop dots and glossy accents are also added.
Also wanted to share a make and take I made at Scrapfest in Kitchner at the Maya Road Booth. Lots of fun to put together, these big bottle caps are really neat!
Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great inky day :)
Made with Hero Arts CL375 Big Flower & CL342 Everyday sayings
Just a quick post this morning. Wanted to share a masculine card made with Kraft Paper and distress inks. A sketch was used from Hero Arts which really made things a lot easier with creating this "guy card". Faded Jeans and Vintage photo distress inks plus also Mementos Tuxedo Black ink which shows really well on Kraft paper. Faded Jeans is a fairly new ink in my collection and I was surprised how well it matched with the Jean Scrapbook paper I used as my backdrop!
Thanks for looking, have a fab Friday!
Made with CL502 Just saying Hi
Just test driving a new stamp with this quick circle card. Tried to use some fresh colours for a spring like feel.
I am totally excited about Scrapfest in Kitchener Ontario, it's this weekend and if you are going I might just see you there! I will be attending with my local scrapbook store, booth #620 on both Friday and Saturday :)

Happy Friday and Happy April to you! We are one step closer to seeing some warm weather and I can't wait! Getting ready butterfly birthday is made with Hero Arts cg265 getting ready and cm003 happy birthday sentiment. The colours used are from Fresh Inspiration Friday…the Dining Room photo on the Hero Arts blog. The getting ready image is clear heat embossed, cut out with pop dots added against patterned paper. The sentiment is stamped on clear acetate and some craft feathers to create a boa. I really love this sweet image it reminds me of a little girl playing dress up. Made one more fabric flower from Kelly's tutorial using Pool paint dauber from Tim Holtz, CG187 floral brocade plus also added a pin and vintage button. Today is hat day at work. March is always our busiest month at the company I work for and they have been spoiling us all week. I tried to crochet a hat with a flower back in December but my tension was too tight and it ended up too small. One of the fab gals at work brought me in this felted flower hat and I am so excited to wear it today!
I am from Toronto Canada and I love the simple things in life. The garden, rubber stamping, scrapbooking, old things, pyrex and Fiestaware. I am married to my best friend and we have 2 cats. My idea of a Vacation is relaxing at home working on small projects (boring I know), but I love it!
Thank you so much for stopping by to visit!
