Because I care....

Hello,

Well, today is my last day of work. I have to go in for training and meetings. I'm looking forward to just chillin on Thursday. I have been reorganized my studio and getting ready for the new catty! Only 1 more day to go!!

This is one of the new Level 1 Hostess set in the Catalogue. It's called Because I Care. I wasn't too sure about this stamp set at the beginning, but I have to say that I love it now!! I have seen some really great cards out there using this set.

My inspiration for this card came from Heather and she got the idea from Joanne Pullen.

Teacher Thank You!!!

Hello,

Yippee, it's the last day of school. I can't believe how fast the year went. It's amazing to see the growth in my girls over the year. They have worked so hard this year and we are really proud of them!!

Last night, we worked on our cards for the teachers. My inspiration for this card came from my good friend Heather. It was one of the projects in her online class. We also made this card at my kid's punch class this month. As soon as my girls saw it, they had to make it. They love making projects with my punches!!Thanks Heather for the inspiration!!

Now on their card, they spelled Thank You across the top, instead of the alphabet.

Happy Birthday Emily

Hello,

It's a been an exciting day for us. Today is Emily's birthday. She really wanted to have her best friend Sam over for a sleepover. She also wanted to go to the beach for dinner and swim. So last night we went to Port Stanley and had a fabulous time. The girls enjoyed swimming in the lake (it was freezing) and had supper at Mackie's. Then on the way home, we stopped for some yummy Shaw's ice cream!!

Happy Birthday Sweetheart!!!

Kaitlyn's Hope Thank You

Hello,

First, I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone that came out last night to support Kaitlyn's Hope. Kaitlyn is my friend's niece. She was diagnosed in January with a rare heart condition and her only hope is a heart transplant.

From the bottom of my heart, I would like to thank my family and friends that came out last night to support this little girl. Without your support, this fundraiser would not have been a huge success. I'm so proud to say that we will be donating $500 to Kaitlyn's Hope. This donation will be use to help ease the stress of this situation, as well as to raise awareness of the importance of organ donation. 

I would also like to say a big thank you to Michelle and to my mom for all their help last night!!!

I thought I would create a little MDS page to highlight the fun evening we had!!

Awash Flowers -- Two Step Stampin'

Hello,

I'm so excited as tonight is our first night for our technique club. These ladies will meet once a month for the next 6 months. We are going to have so much fun learning new techniques. Along with each technique we will also make a 6 by 6 reference card.

With being in a club, these ladies will take turns being the hostess. They will earn free hostess stamp sets and free product. It's a great way to work on your wish list, and most of all a night to yourself. If this sounds like fun to you and you want to learn more about the clubs that I offer, I would to hear from you. You can email me at ca.granger@sympatico.ca

One of the projects that we are making tonight is Two Step Stampin'. This fun technique uses a bold image that is usually stamped in light colour and then you stamp an outline image over top using a darker colour.

The stamp set that we are using tonight is Awash Flowers. It's a new stamp set in the new catalogue. I love these colours together...Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight and Black. Yummy is all I can say!!

Because I care...

Hello,

Well, the girls made it to the finals and then we lost. So we ended up finishing 2nd overall in the tournament. The girls were very excited about their results!

I'm excited to share this sneak peak with you. This is one of the new Level 1 Hostess stamp set from the new catalogue. As demonstrator, we earned this FREE when we order a certain product on pre-order.

The stamp set is called Because I care. When I first saw it, I was like..it's okay but then when I saw a card done with it, I was impressed. It's going to be one of those stamp set that you can use for any occasion.

It's hard to tell from the photo but I used the new Wallpaper Impression folder on it. This new folder is gorgeous.

My inspiration for this card came from my good friend Heather. Now I did change it up abit to make it my own. I love how you stamp an image and then you cut it up into "inches".

Oh my gosh... I love this new Cherry Cobbler paper!! Yummy!!
