sending thanks

Hey there!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.
My husband and I spent it away from the little man (first time since his birth 17.5 months ago!!!) and went back to where we got married to celebrate our 5th anniversary. 

It was a lot of fun, an although we were only away for 23 hours, we spent much of that time talking about him!!
Oh well, that little creature does sort of rule the roost around here!!

Anyway, today I am sharing a little thank you card that I will be giving to my in-laws to thank them for taking such great care of the kid. 

I used Avery Elle's Many Thanks set.
 I just love this bold font, and how it stands out so well against the watercolour backdrop.

Pop on over to the Avery Elle blog to check out a stunning card by Chunyuan!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

simply happy

Good Morning!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend.

Today I have a quick share of a card I made using the new set 
Simply Said: Happy (with accompanying dies) from Avery Elle.

The "happy" was cut out using some fabulous new patterned paper that Avery Elle will be releasing tomorrow!!

It is absolutely fabulous, and coordinates with their most popular ink pad colours.

Good morning!

Happy Canada Day to my Canadian friends!

This set is so much fun, and would coordinate well with any of Avery Elle's other birthday sets. 

The fabulous thing is, there are also matching dies!!

sending hugs

Hey there!

The blog has been a bit quiet lately.
I have been trying to spend more time with my family in between all of the things that take us away. :)

My son and I recently got back from a trip out to Ontario to visit my Grandpa,
his Great Grandpa, who's 93 no less!!

And since most, actually all, of my family lives far from where I do, I think this new set from Avery Elle will come in very handy for sending quick little notes to keep in touch.

I used the new Sending You set for the sentiment and the little gold heart image, and the Oh Yeah Elle-ments die set to cut out the speech bubble.

Avery Elle Sending You Clear Stamps  Our Oh Yeah Custom Steel Die are exclusive to Avery Elle.  The largest speech bubble is the perfect size to fit into a 3 x 4" page protector pocket or to create your own journaling card.  These premium steel dies coordinate with our Oh yeah and Picture It clear photopolymer stamp sets and are proudly made in the USA. Measurements: Largest Speech Bubble Die - just under 3 " x 4"

Stop on by the Avery Elle blog to check out some amazing inspiration from Chunyuan.

Thanks for stopping by today, have a wonderful day!

Things around here have been pretty busy lately, 
but last week we carved out a little time for some family photos.

It was so much fun to do, that I felt the need to do something special with some of the photos.

I made a scrap page!! 
This is a first for me, I picked the photos, the paper, and came up with the layout all by myself, no workshop, nothing.

I never seem to be able to focus enough to do an entire layout.

This new fabulous set from Avery Elle, 
#smile seemed like just the right thing to use.

Now, please excuse the terrible pic. 
I have no clue how to photograph a layout, I've never done it before!

you're seriously awesome!

Good morning!

I seriously hope this posts!! 
Blogger and I are on the outs again, and I can't quite seem to figure out why.

Anyway, today I have a pretty card to share with you.
The more I look at it the more I enjoy it.
Is that weird?

I started this card out with a COMPLETELY different idea in mind, and then it quickly morphed into this.

I just, again, used my distress ink pads that I "smooshed" onto my craft pad then spritzed with water. 
Then grabbed a clear block and started dabbing.

The gold Delicata ink was just sitting there on my desk begging to be used and I thought it might go nicely!

I used Avery Elle's set Write It
the font is just so beautiful don't you think?

Well, thank you so much for stopping by today. 
I'm hoping I can get this posting issue fixed soon. 

Have a wonderful week!

RetroSketch #116

Hey there, happy Saturday!!

It's time for a new RetroSketch challenge sketch.

This week's sketch is based on this little beauty by Arielle.

Here's my take!

I used A couple of Avery Elle sets for this one, Bright Days (for the rays), Simply Said: Hello for the sentiment, and the Simply Said: Hello die.
I also used their inks, Fizz and Mimosa, (which I LOVE!!)

Hop on over to the RetroSketch blog for more inspiration from the rest of the DT.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
