Beautiful Day

Wow, this morning it looked like we were going to get a storm and now the sun is shining and it has heated up! I'll probably get everyone fed and head outside for a while to enjoy the day. Was in the mood to make some cards, didn't have anything particular in mind so I checked out a few of my favourite challenge blogs:

I have a poll in the left sidebar, I would appreciate it if you would vote. I am considering opening a Canadian online shop focusing on Magnolia stamps. Thanks :)

Used the theme from Just Magnolia (pink & green) and the sketch from Mojo Monday and created this darling birthday card:

2 Sketches 4 You - Laura's Sketch 24

Basic Grey Challenges & Cardvaarks

BG challenges had a fun sketch and I did want to use up some of my holiday paper (Figgy Pudding). I also used the theme from Cardvaarks which was: create a tree themed card. Not sure if I got that completely right but I have no tree stamps so that's the way I rolled with it.

I am going to be moving my blog, just need to get a few last things sorted out. I have decided to go with wordpress which I am hoping will be simpler to use than blogger. I know there are pros and cons to both, hoping wordpress is the better choice.


Shout Out to Sheetload

Cardmakers: if you haven't checked out the site you should do so now. I love the sketches and if you are into mass producing a card then this is certainly the site for you! Their sister site, Shortcuts, has some cool clear/frosted card bases and gift card holders for sale at a very reasonable price. And there is usually a chance at winning some free goodies, who doesn't love free goodies??

I am so happy it's Friday!! I haven't had a chance to do anything this week and I am eager to dig into some of the new goodies I have picked up in the past week or so. I did make a quick card tonight which I will post, then I am off to watch Ghost Whisperer. I don't watch a lot of TV in general, but there are so many shows I adore this year that it seems every night I am sitting down to watch one. On Tuesdays it is American Idol and Fringe, Wednesday is LOST and Criminal Minds, Thursday is Hell's Kitchen and Harpers Island, Friday is Ghost Whisperer and finally, Sunday is Amazing Race. Yesterday I saw an ad for So You Think You Can Dance - I am so excited!

Tammy left me some lovin' on her blog. I am supposed to nominate another 10 blogs and keep it going but I am no good at rules so I am just going to redirect everyone to Tammy's blog, it's the least I can do... ;) Go ahead, click on the blog award....

Here is a card I made using yet another Magnolia stamp. I am still trying to find a good cardstock for copics that won't cost me an arm and a leg to get shipped here. I was thinking of maybe the Stampin' Up cardstock, anybody have any suggestions where I can buy quality cardstock for Copics in Canada?

Check out the poll I have in the left sidebar. I am considering open an online store for Magnolia stamps and trying to determine the interest here in Canada. Thanks!!

Scrapfest weekend!

I drove to Kitchener for Scrapfest and got to meet Carla, Michelle, Lorraine, and Jess. What a crazy group of gals. It's awesome to meet people in person after spending months (and in some cases, years, talking to them). Here's our picture, I am on the far right:

I've got a few cards to show you and some blog candy links so keep scrolling!
