Something sweet for someone sweet!

I have a thing lately.... it's a colour fascination thingy... I love mixing pinks with browns with aqua blues... I'm not sure why... but I can't stop the colour combo. HELP!! Here's another birthday card I made a month or so ago for a close brit friend... Jules ;} I dabbed on a little shimmer paint to add some bling... you know me.. I tried to hold off on the glitter....but if you look closely you'll notice I sprinkled a little dazzling diamonds on the mini butterfly!

Enjoy your day!

Happy Mothers Day!!

Since moving to Canada in 1997 I celebrate Mothers Day on a different day now. I think in the UK they celebrate it in March... and in Canada/North America we celebrated it today in May. As usual I was tasked to make 2 Mothers Day cards... Here's one of them... the other is similar just different ribbon. I hope both the mums like them... it took a few hours to create seems I was 'playing' with the colours and the new Big Shot die from Stampin Up! Tropical Party. Don't you just loooove the colours.... it's crazy to believe but today it started to snow again :{ Hopefully the card will make you feel warmer ;}

Do you see the glitter?

I also used the new stamp set Tropical Party - contact me if you would like to purchase it. It's quite a versatile stamp set seems it can be used for summer parties, vacations and even Mothers Day cards.

Scrapbooking Fun, Birthday Fun

I had a busy weekend this weekend.. I attended the annual Breast Cancer All Day Scrapbook event on Saturday. I prepped weeks in advance to make sure I could finish pages (mapped my pages, ordered prints). You see...It seems every-time I attend these all day events I get distracted looking at other peoples pages, shopping and I never manage to get any pages done :{ this time was different. I managed to get 6 pages completed... and 2 pages created... I just need to add the photos. I'll take photos shortly to let you see the finished look. The only downside is not everything I used is SU! seems I had brought all the scrapbook stuff before I became a demo. Anyway... I'll post them soon... hopefully in better light.

On Sunday I spent the day out in the countryside of Constance Bay attending a 2yr old's birthday party. Here's the card I made for little Samuel ;} Cute huh! I CASED this from a demo... she had used pastels... I went for the bright bold colours...

Did you see the spots on the present is a little raised... I did that using Stampin Up! Crystal Effects.
