Is it Spring yet?

This week it is Rosanne's turn to challenge the Party-ers!  She chose Botanical.. perhaps she is hoping for an early Spring or at least a glimpse of some grass!  The weather is forecasting 'warmer' temps next week so here's hoping!!

Here's my card....

As usual, this was inspired from a card I saw on Pinterest.  The white flowers are embossed and I fussy-cut the flowers, on advice from my party friends.

Thanks for stopping by and keep thinking Spring!  And take a look at what the other Party-er's have come up with!

Does this look familiar??

This week we were challenged, by Regan, to 'case' a card from a fellow Party-er!  I chose this card by Rosanne  .

Here's my card...

Mine is a little different... Rosanne used gold and I used silver!  Head on over to our Crazy Card Party and link up your 'cased' card.  Thanks for stopping by.

That's A LOT of white...

and I'm not just talking about the snow on the ground here in Ontario!!  This week we were challenged to create a white on white card.  I wasn't sure how I would accomplish that as I do tend to put the greeting or sentiment on the front of the card.  But I think I was able to capture it appropriately!!

Here is my card....
So head on over to our Crazy Card Party and link up your WHITE project!!  

See you next week!

Just one of my favourite things!

HI there... I'm on time this week!!!

Patricia has challenged us to use our favourite stamp set this week.  I have loved this stamp since the first time I saw it embossed.

Here's my card....

The stamp in the upper right hand corner is part of the background paper but based on some Pinterest inspiration I used inks before embossing the doily.  I really like how it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by... link up your favourite stamp project with the others, over at our Crazy Card Party!

Delinquent Blogger!

Hi there.. I've been a delinquent blogger the past couple of weeks.  I could blame my husband for tearing my scrap room apart however he was doing it to add some shelves and do some paint touch-up so that wouldn't be fair!!

But here I am catching up with some past challenges...

Sharon challenged us to complete a Bokeh project.  This really was a challenge as it was not a technique I had tried before.  I am pretty happy with the result however I would have liked the background colours to be a little lighter.   Maybe a trip to Curry's is in order to see if they have some lighter colours.

Here's my card...

This week, Avril challenged us to complete a Valentine's Day Card.  I've been really loving the chalkboard look these days (for everything!) so I couldn't resist this paper when I found it.

Here's my Valentine's card...

Hmmmm... the picture is a little dark so you can't tell but I used by Wink of Stella pen on the hearts so they glimmer and shine!

Now I'm off to find my 'favourite' stamp set for the upcoming week's challenge.

Thanks for stopping by.
