With Sympathy



Happy Sunday my friends. I know I say this every year, but I'm not sure how we are two weeks away from Christmas again!  I'm traveling for work this week, so am feeling even more rushed!  Lots to be done before Santa arrives at our house.  But!  I sneak in some crafting today. Trying to finish up the card sets my mum asked me to do for her friends.  So this sympathy card was made in multiples to put in the sets.

It was inspired by Anita's gorgeous card over at Muse this week. I love using challenges to jump start my crafting!

Happy Friday Eve my friends!  It's time fora new challenge for you over at Time Out!  We have a fun challenge below...and it's time to finish up those Christmas cards or get your thank you notes ready for the Christmas presents!  My card is a case of this gorgeous card from Amy. Don't you love it!  I also made several thank you notes with this design too.  I love a simply layout that is easy to case!

Missing You Always


Excuse the shadows on my photo...but that's what happen when you craft and then don't have daylight to grab a photo!  Had fun using up some sentiments I had stamped at my crafting weekend and added the flowers to play along with the CAS(e) this Sketch.  I love floral cards....as I am sure you all know!  Hope you are sneaking in some crafty time this week too!

Curtain Call: Celebrate Big

Welcome to the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

This week we are inviting you to join us for...

I was inspired by the stacked up books...to make a stacked up cake!  I know...a bit of a stretch but that is what popped into my head as I looked at the challenge!


Making it quick today as I haven't had much computer time...but I hope that you will come play along with us at Curtain Call!

Time Out: Gratitude


Welcome back to another challenge at Time Out!  As we have just had Thanksgiving, we thought it would be great to have a challenge inspired by these fabulous words!  My friend Erin sent me these flowers already colored and the die cut. I added a sentiment and was ready to go!

We Wish You a Merry Christmas



Happy Sunday my friends.  We have had a weekend filled with tons of family to celebrate Thanksgiving together.  I'll admit that I'm happy to have had a quiet Sunday...we've gotten most of our Christmas decorations up but I'm sitting here staring at a half lift Christmas tree!  We have my mum's tree too and Pat is deciding whether or not to pull that out instead.  We'll keep you posted.

In the mean time, I got to catching up on a few blogs and saw the current challenge over at AAA Cards where the challenge is for Christmas. I made this card at my crafting weekend so it's the perfect time to share it.  I love those sweet little silhouette images from Catherine Pooler.  

And here's a sweet little picture of Marcel and Nick relaxing together.  Marcel was rubbing Nick's belly as he sat and watched videos.

With Deepest Sympathy


Happy Wednesday my friends. Last day of work before the Thanksgiving holiday and I'm grateful!  Ryan gets home for the long weekend too...and I'm definitely looking forward to having a full house of boys.

My sympathy card stash never seems to stay full so I was in need of a card for a friend who lost her brother.  The CAS(E) this Sketch challenge was perfect to get my mojo going to create this card. Love that challenge!
