colourQ #322


Can you believe that tomorrow is New Years Eve?

Oh my goodness this year has flown by.
Today is the final colourQ challenge for 2015 and Arielle created the most magical colour palette.


Walking in a Winter Wonderland - December '15

It's time for the final 2015 edition of the 12 Kits of Occasions.  This month Lindsey was our hostess and she sent us a kit full of fun papers, die cuts and sparkle.  I easily made 5 cards and I could have kept going.  I have lots of fun goodies left to play with, the ideas are still flowing.  Here we go...






I hope you head over to the 12 Kits blog to see who our two fabulous guests are this month and to check out what the rest of the team has for eye candy today!

CQC #321


Well here we are with Christmas now behind us. I hope that you had a wonderful day with your family and loved ones. We enjoyed our first Christmas in our new home. All the snow we had the week before Christmas was gone and it was a mild and sunny day! We headed to my parents home in Toronto during the afternoon and stayed with them Christmas Night and went east of the city to visit with my husbands family on Boxing Day. It was busy but loved spending time with family.

I am a bit late posting my card for colourQ #321, but better late than never.  As I write this post up on Monday evening we are in the midst of a snowstorm. We have had about 4" fall this evening and now it has changed to freezing rain. So glad that we do not have to go anywhere Tuesday.

One last Christmas card for 2015 or maybe the first card towards Christmas 2016!
I adore this sweet Lawn Fawn set.

It's time for a new Cue Card at CASology

This week's Cue is:

Can you believe that it is only three days until Christmas Day?
I hope that you are enjoying the fun and festivity of the season.
I can honestly say for the first time of quite a few years I have it together for Christmas. Shopping and wrapping done, groceries bought and onto some baking. I imagine it has a lot to do with the fact that both kids have been away at school.  They are both coming home tonight, Brooklyn writes her last exam today and Ben hung back a couple days so he could bring her home so she didn't  have to take the bus.

We had so much snow fall on Friday and Saturday but mild yesterday, raining today and in the forecast all week. We might still end up with a green Christmas. I will include a few photos at the end of the 14" that fell last weekend.

For my card today I triple layered the merry die cute and embossed the 'christmas' below it.  Very simple but lovely to look at. If you wanted to mass produce to mail out a single layer 'merry' would still look lovely!

Tag You're It #37

Happy Friday!

With only 7 more days until Christmas Day I assume that everyone is crazy busy with last minute preparations--lists, shopping, groceries, decorating, wrapping, parties... I have been keeping it very low key here on my blog because as I have learned in the past that overdoing it always ends up badly.

Today is the start of the final challenge of 2015 at Tag You're It!
Check out Donna's cool and fabulous tag...

Here is my inspired by tag.  I heated up my Fuse Tool for the first time tonight. Super easy to use but I need some more practice. I trimmed my pocket down after I fused it and it didn't cut well because my blade wasn't sharp enough. Too impatient to let the tool cool down and use the cutting nib to trim it out, story of my life--lol


Head over to Tag You're It to see what the rest of the designers have done with Donna's tag and we hope that you play along.  Have a wonderful weekend and I hope that you enjoy the lead up to the holiday.

CCC #176


It's time for a new Cue Card at CASology
This week's Cue is:

I love this tree from Essentials by Ellen Christmas Scribbles, by Julie Ebersole. I went over the tree and star after I coloured it with a Clear Star Gelly Roll pen, but it is hiding here on the photo. 


Pop over and have a look at what the rest of the Design Team has created to inspire you...
