Good Good Good-bye......

Hello my friends,

Well, today is the last day that you will be able to purchase your favourite products from the Spring and Summer catalogue, the Home Decor catalogue and the Occasions Mini.

Don't forget to check out the Last Chance list because after today you won't be able to order those product again. I will be placing my last order tonight at 9 pm. So if there is anything that you would like to order, please email me at ca.granger@sympatico.ca .

Last night, I have a chance to make this card. I thought I would use some of my favourite products that are retiring after today.   I'm going to miss Kiwi Kiss, Rockabilly D.S.P and this Level 3 Hostess set called Goody Goody Gumdrops! I just love this sundae image. I decided to watercolour mine with ink and an aqua painter.

Happy Birthday Emily!!

Hello my friends,

It's a special day in our house as it's our daughter's birthday. I can't believe that Emily is 11 years old today. It's so amazing to see how grown up she is and most of all person that she has become.  As I look back 11 years ago...I can still remember the first time I look into those eyes and saw this beautiful new baby girl.  Now my baby girl is almost a teenager!!!

Happy Birthday Sweetheart!!!

Look Here Thank You card

Hello my friends!!

We did it!! The last day of school...where did those 10 months go??? I'm so proud of my girls, they had an amazing year of growth, and accomplishments!!

Every year I like to give the teachers a gift to say thank you for all the love and care that they gave my girls. I always get them a gift card to local teacher resource store, as I figure they always need supplies for the following year.

As soon as I saw the new Look Here die, I knew that it would the perfect holder for a gift card.  I paired it up with the new In-colours, Razzleberry Lemonade D.S.P and my new favourite stamp set Circle Circus.

Circle Circus

Happy Monday my friends,

Well, Mother Nature has decided to turn on the heat this week.  It's going to be HOT, HOT and HOT!!! I don't mind it being hot but it's the humidity that I don't care for.  We are looking at temperatures in the high 30's and then humidity on top of that.  It's a good thing that the girls and I will be done school in 4 days. We are so looking forward to our summer.  YIPPPEEEEE!!

Talk about HOT... I do believe that this new stamp set from Stampin' Up! is going to be hot seller.  I'm talking about the new set called Circle Circus!! Oh my gosh... at first I wasn't really liking this set, but I saw some cute projects and thought I would give it a try. I'm so glad that I did!! I love it!! There is so many things that you could do with this set.

My inspiration for this card came from the Stampin' Success magazine.  It's a monthly magazine for us Demonstrator's.
