Summer Love!

I teach a young lady Scrapbooking on Saturdays and for a bit of a change we decided to try some "She Art".  We both made a self portrait, here's mine! :) If  your not familiar with "She Art" then its best to check out Christy Tomlinson's  creations as they are very inspiring.

Christmas in July


It was a bit of a challenge creating a Christmas tag on one of the hottest weeks this Summer!  We are having a serious heat wave in Southern Ontario and I can't wait for it to break!.

It's nice to have a few Christmas items made ahead of time. Especially when time is so precious around the holiday season. Thanks for stopping by, hope your keeping cool!! :)

I made this card for Kraftin' Kimmies Guns n Roses challenge, I was a little late finishing my card and missed the deadline. So, I will post it here anyways!

Hope you have time to craft and relax today! Remember,  Winter will be here before we know it!  :)

Summer Strawberries & a card :)

Its strawberry season here in Toronto and  I just picked up a flat of these sweet berries from our local farmers market at the GO Train station.  They smell amazing and I will be making Strawberry Jam today and tomorrow with them. Also,  our raspberries in the back yard are just starting to ripen and I will start picking and flash freezing them every day, to make  Jam in about a months time.

and here's a little card to share...

Here's a summery card I made, hope you enjoy :) I have to say that I now love decorating the inside of cards and just might do this every time.... I'm hooked !!!

Gotta run and tend to the yummy berries :) hope you enjoy the day :)

Just a quick post today of this sweet Betty  stamp from Kraftin' Kimmie, she reminds me of a more modern Betty Boop!  I  think this will make a fun Valentines day card and will set it aside for my hubby for next  Feb 14th.  Added some heart gems along with a mix of pattern papers and sewing  stitches too!

This is a super fun image to colour and I have a few other cards in mind using this gal!
