Happy Sunday everyone,

Hope you are out enjoying what I hope in your area is a beautiful summer's day. It finally is here considering it's the long Canada Day weekend.
I created this card for this week's challenge at
I stamped the balloon with Colorbox Berrylicious chalk ink.
The clouds were stamped with pale blue ink which I masked a couple of them behind the balloon.
I then stamped a fourth cloud which I cut out and popped it up over top of one of the clouds.
Added some white enamel accents to some of the clouds to add a little effect and then cut 2 strips of patterned paper to add across the bottom of the card.
When all done I added the light blue frame over the whole card. Stamps are from Dear Lizzy (American Crafts)
Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

My PDCC honourable mention!

Hello there,

I just thought I would pop in to share with you my honourable mention at the Play Date Cafe for challenge #185.

For this card

Hello there,

I just got around to posting this card now.
It was a little paper piecing project. Actually took me longer than planned, but I am quite happy with the results.
The background is obviously stamped in black using the Hero Arts Magical background stamp (CG211). Believe it or not this is the first time I have used this stamp.
The patterned papers on the wheel are from the Doodlebug collection Take Note.
I first cut out all the little triangles and adhered them to a scalloped die cut circle. I decided it needed a little more contrast so I layered another die cut circle over top with reverse scallops on the inside. Added little black cross pieces for the dividers.
Die cut a small scalloped circle for the sentiment and add little dots around the outside of the circle.
Added some black accents and there you have it.
Thanks for stopping by to have a look!

Sunshine & Laughter

Hello everyone,,

Just thought I would share another happy yellow card with you. This card is all about adding a little sunshine to your day.
I used a large paint chip card for the background, you know the ones that you pick up at your local paint store when trying to decide what colour to paint your room. It was perfect for this card as they are quite large and also a great choice for the gradient hues of yellow. I then stamped the Hero Arts Leafy Vines stamp and embossed it in white.
Added the sentiment in black to give a little contrast and a couple of black rhinestones on each side for some added bling.
Hope you find this brightens your day too.
Well I'm off to Yoga class now to start my day on a high! Namaste, Judy

Happy weekend everyone,

At last the sun is finally shining and just maybe summer weather will be with us for a while. We've had quite a bit of rain so far which is great for making everything bloom and blossom but not so nice for being outdoors.
With all that I just thought I would share a card that I created the other day.
Don't you find that yellow is such a fun and uplifting colour!
Anyways hope you like it and that you are able to get out and enjoy some sunshine in your little corner of the world!
Have a happy day,

And then there were three!

Hello, Since I originally posted the photo below on Flickr 2 days ago, our little chipmunk family has grown by 2 new members. My husband was poking around in the garden yesterday and out popped a little chippie- half the size of Mommy. He waited and watched a little longer and up through the little hole in the ground popped yet another baby. Now the fun begins on trying to prevent them from being snaffled up by any local predators. I'm guessing Mommy will do her best on that front - hopefully! Stay tuned and if I get a chance maybe I'll be able to snap a pic or two.

Just thought I would share a photo of our pet chipmunk. We have aptly named her Grandma as she has been living in our front garden for 6 years now and has had quite a few offspring during that time. Every Spring she tunnels her way through the snow to greet us for another year. All we have to do is give her a call and she jumps right into our hand for peanuts.
Isn't she cute!!!

This card is for the challenge at
I must say that after seeing the card that barbghig's had created I was inspired to create my own card with circles.
Instead of die cutting standard circles I decided to use the Retro Diamonds embossing folder from Lifestyle Crafts for the white background of the card. The multi colour background was created with various Tombow markers spritzed with water. When dry I stamped the Penny Black Scented Strokes flower (2677K) and embossed with white embossing powder.
Added a Spellbinders die cut circle with a tiny sentiment from Flourishes tag lines set.
I decided to add some little white stitching around the navy piece of cs but apparently my white pen was on its' last legs. Well off to buy a replacement! Any excuse to visit my local craft store :)
Thanks for stopping by to have a look and
I appreciate any and all comments.

Happy Weekend everyone!
I am here in my craft room this morning although it is very hot and sunny out and had hoped to get into my garden but alas the roofers have shown up today to re-shingle our roof.
My poor cat is terrified with all the hammering and banging. But for me I can have fun playing in my favourite space.
I am entering this card in the challenge over at
It is made entirely out of washi tape which apparently I can't seem to own enough of lately.
My local stamp store just got in a shipment and I bought all 6 of the neon colours (Forever In Time).
Enjoy and thanks for stopping!
