I'm so excited to say that I finally had a chance to play around with my new goodies from the Occasions Mini. The new Occasions Mini will rock your socks off....it's AMAZING!! The Occasions Mini and the Sale A Bration Mini both start on January 5, 2010.

I have to say that I love the new stamp set Totally Tess. She is so much fun. She comes with a SU apron, a wheel, marker, scissors and so much more. There is so much that you can do with this stamp set and you can use her for any occasion.

On my card today, I also used the new Designer Series Paper called Sending Love. You will love this new sparkle paper!! It's gorgeous.

Yellow Duck Baby Card


I hope you are having a great week!!!

I wanted to share with you this baby card that I made a few weeks ago.  This would be great card for a Baby Shower Invitation.  It uses the new stamp set "Wagon Full of Fun". I coloured the duck with my blender pen and inks.

Have a great evening,


Spring Garden


I hope you had a great day. I spend the day with my family outside in the beautiful weather. I wanted to share a card with you that I made the other night. I'm sure you will see a lot of this, this weekend as the weather is suppose to be gorgeous. I have already seen many of my neighbor's digging in their gardens, and cleaning them up after the winter.

As soon as I saw this stamp set Scene in a Garden, I knew that I had to have it. I think I love the garden boots the most. This stamp set you could use for Spring, Summer and Fall.


Recipe:Kiwi Kiss, So Saffron, Whisper White and Cameo Coral card stock, Walk in the Park Designer Series Paper, Scene in the Garden stamp set, blender pen, Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss and So Saffron ink.

Enjoy the rest of your evening,


Mojo Monday # 80

Happy Friday!!

Last night, I finally had a chance to play with my new stamp sets from the Occasion Mini.  This new mini started on April 1st and is good till the end of June. There are so many wonderful new products that it's hard not to buy them all. There is something for every occasion.

I really like the new stamp set called Great Friend. As I love the butterfly image and the verse that goes with this stamp set. It says " You're a friend who make good times great". I thought I would use this stamp set with this week's Mojo Monday sketch.

Check out the new Designer Series Paper called A Walk in the Park. The coordinating colours for this D.S.P, is Basic Grey, Kiwi Kiss, Cameo Coral, Baja Breeze and So Saffron.  I have to say that I really like this colour combo and I think this is one of the first time that I used Cameo Coral. It's not a colour that I use often, but I really do like how it looks. Not sure if you can tell from the picture, but I stamp the butterfly image twice, cut one out and popped it up with dimensional dots.


Recipe:Baja Breeze, Cameo Coral, Basic Grey and Whisper White card stock, Walk in the Park D.S.P, Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/8 circle punch, Basic Grey Taffeta Ribbon, A Great Friend stamp set and Cameo Coral ink.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
