Dinner with John and Veronica

I got to see my Godfather today. Haven't seen him in years, since he moved out to British Columbia. It was great.

We got to see what they had been doing. We got to see all kinds of pictures.

Mom made a great dinner.

It was so good to see both Uncle John and Veronica.

A day out

Went out with Dori, one of the girls from work, to look at apartments. I only had one appointment - I was pretty happy with location but not so with the building. It was kinda dirty and I didn't get to see the specific apartment that I asked to see - but I will keep trying.

We then decided to go to fairview to see inglorious basterds. The show wasn't until two so we decided to walk around the mall for a bit. I went to Bath & Body Works!! I only went to get a small bottle of cream, however when I walked into the store I saw my shampoo!! I looked like a kid at christmas - they said that they would not be carrying it yet there it was!!! I first found this product down in Florida - I loved it and it lasted three months - what shampoo and conditioner do u know that does that. Anyways they didn't have the vanilla that I liked so I got cherry blossom - it smells great.

So then dori and I ventured to saphora. We got to see the kat von d products. Love the saint perfume - it smells so good. As a side note - I love her show - I think she georgeous but she is truly stunning without her tats too!! If u get a chance u have to check it out.

We also went to the Children's place to see if we could find something for Dori's sister. I saw this cute onsie. Isn't it awesome.

We certainly had a great day - the movie and company was awesome.

leaves changing

So I was a little scared to see a tree that's leaves had already turned and were starting to fall. This is what greeted me as I got out of my car to walk to the train this morning. Can you actually believe it? I can't so I am going to post the pics tomorrow - it's crazy!!!

Christmas in September?!?!


Now I bet you are thinkin' I am crazy....well.....I was in Michaels the other day just looking around when i came upon their christmas display. I went starry eyed at all the beautiful stamps and cards. Starring up at those packages my eyes grew three sizes bigger (to somewhat quote The Grinch).

Anyways I made this wonderful card. I used The Paper Company Uptown Gold, Bazzill Ruby Slipper and some gold ribbon.

I used Copics to colour the image - R89, G24, G99, G94, E35, and E44. I embossed the gold background with the cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder.

Here is the full card:

and the closeup of the christmas tree.

A cat in a cape!

I had the house to myself today. It was pretty good. Dad was at the cottage getting ready for his fishing trip with the boys next week and mom was at work. It was great as I got to do some work on my cards as I have been slacking a bit.

I was able to package my 6x6 layout swap for Veronica's Crop for the cure. The challenge was to create two 6x6 pages using brown, pink, white and black (only a bit). There are ten people in the swap so once everything is swapped out then you have an entire album to fill in photos and you're done.

When I visited Vernonica at Pointers Friday Night Crop I picked up a set of Halloween stamps by Penny Black. I love her stuff. It's extremely cute. Plus Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. What is better then dressing up in some funky or scary costume. It's a day that you can be someone else. Anyways....

Here is my card.

The background paper is KI Memories, and the blue cardstock is Bazzill Mediteranean. I used Close to my Heart inks in Orange and Blue. The stamp was coloured with copic markers and highlighted with loose glitter. The copics used in this image include: Colorless Blender, Y15, B26, B24, YR04, YR07 and YR0000.

Here are two more close ups of the cat so that you can see the detail.

Friday night chatter...

Work couldn't go fast enough today as I was really excited to get my hair cut today. It look awesome. I got a lot of brown put into it with a few blonde streaks.

Afterwards, I went to visit Veronica at Pointers for her Friday Night Crop. I brought her some dinner because she was starving. I also got to see the girls. It was great fun, but I couldn't stay long as I was super tired.

Here was bella's challenge this week. This sketch was provided by MEAHNIBELLA.

Here is the card I created using the sketch.

This is the upclose image of the bffABUGS. These are awesome little bugs. I coloured them with copic markers and shadowed with yellow chalk.
