Sometimes you just gotta let go and let out a massive...

My week has definitely been like that.

Today I have a card I made using the October TAWS freebie (with $40 purchase from the store this month)
Lava You.

The set contains this adorable dino image and some pretty fabulous sentiments. It also pairs well with the previously released sets

Cute don't you think?

Pop on over to the TAWS blog for more design team inspiration, and then go get this adorable set!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, have a great weekend.

enjoy the book


I hope you are having a fabulous day.

Today I have a quick project to share with you. I am loving making bookmarks these days, for some unknown reason. Especially since so many people are forgoing paperbacks for the digital age.
But it's just something I can't give up!

This adorable fox is from Avery Elle's new set More Stories, which complements perfectly the older set, Storybook.

I also used Picture It and Bottle It Up for the sentiment and speech bubble.

HEad on over to the Avery Elle blog for more inspiration from the fabulous Chunyuan today as well.

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a great day!!

love always

Good Morning!

Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends!
I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful feast with family or friends.
I unfortunately work but my hubby promises a nice plate full of all the fixin's will be waiting for me courtesy of my inlaws.

I can't wait!!

Anyway here is a quick card I made using the TAWS set Tickle Me Happy.
I adore the feathers in this set, they are so much fun to work with.
I have so many ideas.

The sentiment is from an older set, Talk To Me.

Thank so much for stopping by today!

Have a wonderful day.

a floral thanks

Good day!

I hope you are having a wonderful day, I know it's the start of a new week but......maybe?

I am just coming off of a fabulous visit with my bestie, who came out from Ontario to visit and run a Spartan race in Kamloops.
It was a lovely visit and my little man just ADORES her. 

Anyway, on to the card!

This bright, floral thank you card was made using all Avery Elle pigment inks. They are so easy to work with, and the colours are just fantastic.

The flowers and dies are from the new Fabulous Florals stamps and dies. There are just so many different combinations and they also pair nicely with Laurels, and Petals & Stems.

I am just so happy with the way this turned out. :)

This weekend we also had some family photos done, and we just got some sneak peeks and they are fantastic.
I have to share a few.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Have a great week.

Good morning!

I've been working like crazy to finish some sewing I've been doing for a craft fair this weekend.

But taking a quick break to share a card I made using Avery Elle's new set Noel.

I used the Cherry Pigment Ink pad with a sponge to create the background.

I love how bold it is.

Thanks so much for stopping by today,
have a wonderful week!

a tag for you

Good Morning!

I'm a day late but have a cute little tag to share with you, 
using Avery Elle's new set North Pole.

I masked off the Santa hat to just use the "ho ho ho" to background stamp the tag I cut using Gift Tags die. And stamped the sentiment from the Simply Tags: Everyday set.

Then I stamped, coloured and fussy cut the adorable penguin and popped him up onto a banner I cut out using Dotted dies.

I'm definitely on a tag making kick lately!

I hope you are having a wonderful week so far, 
thanks so much for stopping by!
