add a little dazzle

Hello again!!

Such an exciting day.

It's Add A Little Dazzle and Avery Elle week!  
This week the Avery Elle design team is playing with some amazing metal sheets from Add A Little Dazzle.  
These sheets work great with our Elle-ments dies!  

After visiting here, be sure to check out the Add A Little Dazzle blog for even more inspiration!  

Be sure to comment on our company and designer blogs throughout to week to be entered to win one of two prizes - a $30 Avery Elle Gift Certificate or a prize from Add A Little Dazzle!  
Winners will be announced on Monday, October 6th.

These metal sheets are so much fun.
I have so many more creations planned with them, but for now here's one.

I used the matte black sheet to but out the web, using Avery Elle's Boo Elements Die, and distressed it a bit by scraping some of the black off to reveal the silver underneath.

I also used the Circle Tag Elements die and the Boo stamp set.

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!

be jolly

Good morning!
Today I have a quick and festive card to share with you. 
I mean, we got snow here yesterday, 
so it kind of put me in a "winter" frame of mind.

I made this card using the fabulous images and sentiment from Be Jolly
One of Avery Elle's new Fall release sets.

It may be a mini but it's so much fun.

Be Jolly Clear Stamp Set

I dig you RetroSketch #131


Happy Saturday to you.

I am excited and a little sad to bring you this weeks new RetroSketch challenge.

Excited because I love these challenges, and I've been off for the summer, and sad because it is indeed my last one as a DT member.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time on this fabulous adventure created by the fabulous Arielle.

She took a chance on me almost 4 years ago and welcomed me onto her ColorQ team, then started this challenge and brought me on to this as well.

Arielle also introduced me to the amazing Alison, owner and creator of The Alley Way Stamps.

I owe her many thanks, she is an amazing lady!

Anyway, on to my card!
It's based on one of my old cards that you can see here.

 I used the new TAWS set Livin' Fossils, as well as the free with $40 purchase set Rock Solid.

Please head on over to the RetroSketches blog to see the fabulous creations Arielle, Laurie, Erin, Jeni and Erica have to share with you.

Good Morning!

How is your week going?
We just got back from a wonderful trip to the west coast and it was Fantastic!!

We spent a few days in Whistler, a few days in Victoria
 and about a week in Vancouver.

While on this trip we discovered a few new things about my little man.
He loves to play dress up, gets car sick, and absolutely ADORES birds!

Every bird we saw he had to chase after, seagulls, pigeons, robins, ducks, Canada geese etc.
It was hilarious!
