Stampin' Royalty Challenge #224

This week's Stampin' Royalty Challenge was perfect for me!  Anything Baby is the theme... and seeing as I work on a staff with three pregnant women, this is the perfect way to get a jump on things!  Fortunately for me we even found out the gender of one of the babies the other day, so I've checked that card off of my to-do list:)

Make sure to head over to Stampin' Royalty this to play with us and to check out the fabulous other creations!

Diva Night CASE

Friday night was one of my favourite nights of the Stampin' Up quarter. I held my "Diva Night" for demonstrators within my West Coast Creators Group who had achieved various accomplishments.  I get to spoil them a bit... I cook them dinner and dessert and give some fun little gifts.  We also make a variety of projects that they can take home to share as well.

The sinus infection last week had me operating a little behind schedule, but I came across a fabulous card on Pinterest created by Cindy Hall.  I made some very minor changes, but we all really enjoyed the inlaid technique!

Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #183

This week's colour challenge is a fun one!  The Coastal Cabana, Gumball Green and Crushed Curry aren't colours I would have thought of putting together, but they look great.  I'm out with a sinus infection right now, so I had to keep it simple. I've been lazy and have a few stamp sets on my desk that I haven't put away.  Can you tell that Sassy Salutations is one of them:)  I decided to just make up my own background by simply stamping it in the colour combo:)  Make sure to head over and join us!  We'd love to see what you create!

Card Share

I just wanted to share with you two gorgeous cards that I received recently.  How can the cheerfulness of the Daffodil Delight in the first card not help you feel better?

Planning Mother's Day Gifts for Students

I needed a design of card to start working on with my grade 6/7 students for their Mother's Day gift.  I generally try to make a card that I can put a variety of sentiments on.  I thought that this style would work.  I thought that this style would be great and we'll use all of the In Colours from 2012-2014 in our designs.  Definitely have to eliminate the candy dots when each child will be making a package of 4 cards for their mother's:)  I'll have to come up with something else... hmmm... any ideas?

Congratulations on Your New Home

I was making some cards for a friend of mine who is a realtor.  She wanted something to give to her clients who had purchased their new home.  This was one of the cards I came up with.  Not the one we decided to go with though... the other one has a front door... LOVE IT!  I'll share it later this week!
