March 28 Easter post

Happy Easter!
Well tomorrow is Good Friday already, wow time is flying this week. I hope that you have a fabulous holiday weekend with family and or friends. The weather here is fabulous, not sure if it's going to stay or not but summer is right around the corner.
My weekend will be a quiet on I think, but I certainly don't mind.
For my post this week , I decided to step out of the box, I mostly do card or tags etc. Never scrapbook layouts. Well I decided to do an Easter scrapbook layout. I am actually working on a album for my parents, Their 50 th wedding anniversary is this summer. So my mom and I have been going through pictures, I found a lot of great pictures. I have to go visit and get more pictures,  I'm really looking forward. Going to visit, talk about pictures and visiting  with my parents was wonderful.
Here is my page, it was my first Easter I was only 3 months old. That was a long time ago.
I colored and used  the image Happy Little Bunny from Whimsy Stamps by Stamp Art Design. I loved this image and it fit really well with layout and was fun to color. I hope that this will inspire you to create today if not have a wonderful day any ways and Happy Easter.

My colored image... adorable.

March 21 inspiration card

Welcome To My Blog!
If you haven't been here before welcome and if you have, I'm glad to see you back. 
Well Yesterday was the first day of spring so I thought that this card would be a great way to bring that season in. However on that note today is more like winter here than spring. It's cold out and blowing we did get a bit of snow but not as much as other parts of Alberta. Some parts of the province are complete white out and under heavy snow fall warnings so I'm ok with the little bit that we got. Although I can not wait for spring to finally arrive. 
I made this card as a birthday card for my mother-in-law, I went with a less traditional colors that I typically use. I really love the image it is from Whimsy Stamps made by StampArt Design by Kathryne. This image a digital image  is called * New Tulip Umbrella.
I hope that this will get you in the mood to create a card or project for someone special.

A closer look at the image

  The little dots on the image are so cute. I wanted to accent them to look like rain drops, so I added glossy accents. The great thing with glossy accents is that it keeps its shape on the paper once its dry.I love how it turned out, its a little hard to see in the photograph.
 This is the sentiment that comes with the Tulip umbrella digital image file. Super cute!
Supplies: Bazzill cardstock, MME patterned paper, Copic markers, Memory Box die - Delicate Vine, Sentiment from Stampendous, Martha Stewart Tri butterfly punch & EK triple punch butterfly punch, Ranger stardust stickles and Glossy Accents

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Simon Says: Easter/ spring
Sentimental Sundays: Anything Goes

Whimsy March Challenge

Hi Everyone!
 Welcome back to my blog,
 It's Wednesday March 13 and time for another Whimsy Challenge. WE have some wonderful creations from our Digital designers, click here to check them out.

Our theme for this challenge is :
Stitching Real or Faux.
You don't have to use a Whimsy image or make a card, it can be any creation. It just has to have real or faux stitching on it . Easy enough right. We have three prizes to give away to the lucky winners.
So I'd love to see you create a great project and enter it on the Whimsy Challenge blog.

This is my card for this challenge, I had a few issues with the real sewing thing. I got this little paper sewing machine, just for little projects like this. I've had it for ever and never used it really. My daughter always did she had me help her with it when she used it.  Well I dug it out of my cupboard to use for the stitching. I seriously couldn't get it to work. I made me crazy! It just wouldn't stitch anything super frustrating.  So I have to sit down to figure it out, but in the mean time .... I just decided to do faux stitching. But I will master the use of that for next time, this time my card was just taking way way to long.

I made this card using a super cute image from Whimsy Stamps by designer  Marika Collins called One Heart.
I love this little image it's adorable, I never put a sentiment on it . I think you can give this card to anyone and have it be very self explanitory .

 A closer look at the image and the bouquet of little flowers in the corner.
 A little look at the faux stitching that I did around the outside of my card.
Supplies: Bazzill cardstock, White gel pen, Whimsy Stamps &Wild orchid flowers, Copic markers, distress ink, Zva creative gems, Decorative Labels Eight spellbinders.

I used a Digital image created by Crissy's Digis. A great summer birthday card for a young boy, Makes you wish summer would come faster. I started off coloring this image in the BG copic colors but found some green patterned paper that I really though was a great boy color so then blended in a green pallet. So the hoodie took me a bit of time to color but I like the final product.
