Snow Friends


Hi good to see you!
Just finished this cute card and thought that I would share it with you. I know its a winter image but I guess given that last week here in Alberta we had a lot of snow come down. It was crazy, for sure way to early for that silly stuff. We definitely need to have fall cause that white stuff stays around far to long anyways. 
I made this card using an image from called Snow Friends from designer Kathryne at 
StampArt Designs from Whimsy Stamps. This file also comes with a bonus of a sentiment file.
 I colored him using copic markers and added a lot of snow flakes and the ribbon to give a whimsical look. Kind of magical like a snow fall can be.
I hope that this inspires you to loose yourself in the magic of creation.


A bit closer look at the image colored.

sept 10 inspiration card

Good morning!

Well we have been getting snow already ugggghhh! Really way to early for that stuff, especially after the mountains of snow that we were blessed with last year. Do you sense a little sarcasm well you interpreted that one right. I've happened to go away for a few days and well the amounts of snow that parts of Alberta is getting is crazy. Where I am it's just a bit windy with a bit of a chill to it but no snow.  This is the time of year where the leaves are suppose to be most majestic in autumn colors and canning fruit and jams are suppose to begin. Well this year not so much..... but it made me think of this super cute image that I colored but never got around to creating a card with so... well.. here is my creation.
I used this wonderful image from Lia Stampz vintage collection called Strawberry Girl from Whimsy Stamps. I decided to follow along with the colors of the strawberries and autumn and  make it red. I also added some glossy accents to her glasses to give it that shine, also a little bit on the strawberry seeds.



a closer look at the vintage girl.

Hope Aug 14

Welcome to my blog!
I created this card using a fantastic new image released at the Whimsy store created by Marika Collins called  Hope. This is a wonderful image honoring breast cancer, so I thought that the card should be bold and have a big statement and have a lot of pink. I think I have accomplished that, I think we have all been touched by someone in our life that has struggled with some form of cancer. So with this card I honor each and everyone of them.


Supplies: Bazzill cardstock, Momenta patterned paper, Whimsy mini lace corner doily 1 die, spellbinder cut a mat create 2A, copic markers, miscellaneous flowers, Prima leaves, Stardust Stickles by Ranger, distress ink.

Have a fabulous day and keep creating.

Back to school challenge

Welcome to my blog!

Today is a  challenge day on the Whimsy inspires blog , the theme is back to school. So I created a card using a great image from Lia Stampz called News Girl from Whimsy Stamps.

I guess this card can be used for a lot of different themed cards like, getting a new job, telling someone some news or the one I used is back to school. She kind of looks like she could be a history teacher ready to give you some current events. 
I think about going back to school and it makes me think that summer is going to turn into fall. I want summer to last a lot longer for sure. The weather here has been amazing to say the least but I guess the kids don't go back to school till the beginning of September so it's a few weeks away. The gardens are still growing and the flowers are still blooming so till school starts I have to stay in summer mode.

I hope to see you create a back to school masterpiece and enter our challenge this month to win some amazing images from Whimsy Stamps.
Here is my card.
 A bit closer with my coloring.
