Throwback Thursdays

Oh dear me, it seems work is getting in the way of my crafting, thus I don't have anything new to you today, unless you're new to my blog, then it will be new.

My all-time favourite song is Imagine, thus I was delighted when I found the word imagine in wood. It was like being in the right place at the right time - I had been looking to do something my tiny quilled flowers  So yay!



On a scale of 1 to 10, making this project was a 12, and I love the outcome.  Oh, in the event you're wondering why there are spots without flowers, I left them empty on purpose.

This sits on my craft table.  Inspiration!



So, what do you think?  Should we revisit Throwback Thursdays again?


Happy Crafting!

Up Up and Away!

...in my beautiful balloon.  Am I showing my age?  Does anyone remember that song?  I thought of it when taking the picture of the card.

Speaking of beautiful - what a beautiful day in Southern Ontario with the sun shining and temperature around 10 celsius.  My house faces west, the afternoon sun is wonderful, and I have a card to show you that was inspired by today!


I used one of my favourite embossing folders for the layer, and I tried out my new Balloon Framelit from Stampin' up!....love it!  Check out the adorable bow, which is in that Framelit set. Everything except the pink glitter paper is from Stampin' Up!  By now you've probably figured out how much I love their products.

If off to enjoy the rest of the day.  Hope you like my Up Up and Away Happy Birthday card!

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!

I Never Promised You a Rose Garden

Seems there's often a song playing in my head.  Say a few words and I'll probably come up with a song, maybe old, maybe new, and sometimes I:ll just break into song without warning. LOL...part of being quirky!!

There is, however, a method to my madness - the Stampin' Up! die I used is called Rose Garden, and here's two cards I made with the die.  First a full sized card.  Another clean and simple card - so good for many different occasions.



And a cute gift card.  



I see lots of potential for the Rose Garden die in upcoming cards!  What a beauty!!


Thanks for stopping by.  Happy Crafting!

Pretty in Pink - Happy Birthday

Who doesn't love pink & sparkles!  And balloons, and birthdays.

And movie references...lol. I do!

I also like five minute cards.


I used an adorable cutie-pie pink textured paper for the card base, and added a part layer of embossed white paper.  Wow - almost done.  Love Stampin' Up! products!!!

To continue - I added in glitter paper balloons, a balloon string stamped image, Happy Birthday sentiment and this pretty in pink birthday card is done!

That's all for today - thanks for stopping by!

Happy crafting!
