Well the warm days of summer are beginning to change to the leaves falling and more indoor crafts will be started. I have been ordering dies, stamps and embossing folders from Aliexpress and patiently waiting their delivery. I have an order for this years Christmas invitations from my sister. She plans ahead! I will post a couple of pictures of last years invitations and treat bag toppers. Hmm now I must confess I am not sure how I can surpass those. I will need to start watching more card making YouTube videos and less US political videos. I must admit I have been watching haul videos and have become addicted to shopping at the Dollar Tree and Dollarama here in Canada and a shout goes out to Theresa of My Everyday and Sher of Crafty Sher Cupcake. Also I will be saying hi to Jenny Mowan and Sara of Gypsy Sara. I think that as addictions go these are probably cheaper than some of the other things.
I will post a post of the preparations when I do make the Christmas invitations but until then I will continue to enjoy the beautiful weather.
Here are a couple of pictures of the summer projects I have made and thanks for taking time read this post.
Well again I have been negligent about adding to my blog but since I am away from my craft room I have time to create a post. It is almost like an addiction withdrawal. I have spent time looking at Youtube videos and I am so inspired but haven’t my supplies with me to create. You know you are addicted when while you are travelling you schedule stops at craft stores within a 50 mile radius. I had to buy a new suitcase to bring back everything I found. I have begun work on my first ever scrapbook and am looking forward to finding more things to include. Once I have it completed I will share my results. I am going to add a few cards I made for this past Christmas and then will sign off to plug my tablet in. I will promise to more often in 2016. Ok so it is now 2017 and I have finally returned.
I know I have neglected posting to my blog for a long time. I have been knitting , crocheting, card mailing and making 3d paper projects. Tried my hand a You Tube video but I will have to learn more on how to edit and do voice overs. Always something new to learn. Life is an adventure. I will post a few pictures of some items I have finished. Thanks for stopping by.
Sketch challenge Aug 12
Ok it has been a long time since I wrote on my blog…Please forgive me. It’s just that I have been renovating and had out of town guests so my crafting was just done as required basis. Now it is too hot to be sitting outside so I have taken a few moments to add a few of my projects to my blog. I have made a card for a couple who married in the summer and I personalized it for the mother of the groom to give to the couple. It was a challenge but I got to play with glitter paper and a couple of dies cut from my Silhouette Cameo.
Today I finished up two cards for my sister’s birthday and there is a story that goes with them. When we were kids we would play the royal family. She always got to be the queen and I was always the lady in waiting. I got to hold her flowing robes…usually a towel or one of my mom’s old ball gowns…wasn’t my mom terrific. Well I will decide between the two cards. Both of these cards used digi images from Make it Crafty. I will upload images to their web site as well.
Today I got inspired by the challenge at My Favorite Things which showed a framed circle and some stars. This immediately made me think of the moon and the stars on Distress inked night sky. I used three dies from My Favorite Things Blueprints 13 to make the stars and the moon. I free had cut the clouds and die cut the sentiment.
I also spent some time working on boxes from SVG cuts which I thoroughly enjoyed making. I will post a couple of those pictures as well. Not sure if I will be back into crafting until the cooler weather begins but you can be sure I will share what I do create. I hope your summer has been great and thanks for reading.

Had fun making this baby card. Hope you enjoy it. I used copic markers to colour him and then I used Lawn Fawn Designer paper and added some small stars.
