Beaded Cards

My stamping friend Shirley sent me some patterns for beaded cards and I created these for a swap. I am glad it was only a 5 card swap, my hands were quite cramped by the end!

Acetate Cards

I have been trying my hand at these lately, and have tried every colour of Stazon ink that I have. I have decided I like the Black best!

(This one is white ink but scanned so you can't see that it is transparent)

Happy Halloween

I have made a few Halloween cards to send off to family and friends, but still haven't made them for my class yet!

It is so gorgeous here in Nova Scotia this fall, I am in awe!

It Feels Like Fall!

I used bleach (well actually automatic dishwasher liquid) to make this card. Then overstamped the trees with brown ink.

Waiting for the fireworks

I took this picture from the back of the "yet-to-be-named sailboat", while we were waiting for the Canada Fire Works to start. The river looks so peaceful, you'd never know there were 2 dozen power boats zooming around.

Victoria Day Weekend

It is so cold here this weekend, the children have shorts on going to tennis lessons but I am in fleece! I did get to play a bit this weekend. I also worked on some boat cushions and came to the realization that I am going to pay someone who knows what they are doing to re-cover them. My sanity is not worth it! So if you know someone near me......... I promise a finders fee RAK!

I knew I couldn't keep up!

It's been almost a month since I have updated my blog, but here I am. The computer was in the shop for almost a week so that was maddening. It is amazing how much we use it in our house.

I made a few cards recently, just playing with some new stamps. Mom loved her Mother's Day card! Raining here all weekend so no golf for us yet.

Our new baby!

We are the proud owners of a new sailboat! We are still thinking of a new name and having lots of fun with decorating ideas. Yup, the vintage 80's tweed needs to go!

Getting this up and running.....

Going to take a while to get into the habit of this bogging thing... but I promised myself I would give it a fair shake!

Here I am after a hard day of stamping!! okay, minus the cigarette, unless it s made of chocolate.
