The Holidays

Good Morning,

I haven't been on lately much as we are getting ready for Christmas at our house. We had two parties this past weekend and I had tons of fun. On friday night we had the guys and their partners over for drinks and finger foods. There was so much food. I had a great time. Saturday we had our old neighbours and my aunt and uncle over for dinner. We had Chicken piccata, scalloped potatoes, steamed carrots and for dessert blueberry white chocolate bread pudding with ameretto cream sauce. OMG!! it was so good. We gave everyone a cracker on their place settings. I got a golf counter, it was so funny. I didn't even know what it was, I had to read the instructions.

Well I am looking forward to seeing my family in the coming days!! I plan to post some cards tomorrow that I have done over the last week.

Well I hope you all have a great holidays!!!

marshmellows and penguins...

I found this new stamp company called Darcie's. They make the cutest penguin stamps.

I especially like their penguins in a cup of cocoa.

I used some leftover paper that I had in my stash. I coloured my image with copic markers. I added three Bella baubles under the sentiment. I finished the image with loose glitter. I think this image is so cute.

Here is the upclose of the image I used.

Doesn't it make you want a cup of cocoa?

until next time....

a pocket full of posies....


Good evening ladies,

I got a new Lulu from Stamping Bella, her name is Bessie. She is adorable. Hope you like her.

For the card I used bits of Basic Grey papper I had lying around.I coloured Bessie with copic markers. I coloured the grass and the blue behind her with pencil crayons. I added some sparkle to the flowers using the gelly roll clear glitter pen. It is the best pen.

Here is her close up.

Isn't she cute.

On way to work

So I was having a pretty good morning today, got dressed but on my heeled boots. I felt great, that is until I did a face plant by the CIBC building.

Oh yeah! I was so embarrased. Luckily there weren't too many people around.

Well thought I would just update you because now, thinking back on it - Had I been a bystander I would have been laughing my butt off!!!

Hope this makes your crazy Friday better.

Lulu's and broken ribs...

Well, backdating a bit - this happened November 11.

I got home around my usual time from work to find my mom, extremely sore and puking. Well I was pretty frazzled...don't usually see my mom like that. From what she tells me she was cleaning out the vaccuum and popped a rib. Not sure what it is medically as she didn't go to the hospital but that is what she told me she did.

Well I got pretty freaked out, even called my dad home from work to try and convince her to get herself looked at. No go there. So instead we sat on the couch together and watched Bones and Glee. Great shows!!!!

Here is a new card!

The colours I used for this card include:

E00 - skin white
G24 - willow
R24 - Prawn
R27 - Cadmium Red
R29 - Lipstick Red

Anyways, here is my card:

And her closeup:

I got this Lulu stamp from Stamping Bella. This has to be one of my favorite lines now. Her "girls" are just so cute, that I want to take each one of them home. Which I can say I have almost all of them now.

Days with my Father


So I was visiting my friend Veronica's Blog and came across an old post about a son and his dad.

OMG!! It was so touching. Girls, if you look at this website make sure you have some kleenex. It is truly wonderful. I hope you enjoy it.


Let me know if you check it out.
